If You Want Me To Stay Chords
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
	      If You Want Me To Stay - Sly And The Family Stone
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Arranged by: Funkynic

Tabbed by: Hostile Apostle

Please send suggestions and corrections to Mareed129@aol.com

Tuning: Standard

Note: I got the idea to write this tab from a video on youtube which can be
viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqlIce56NJw .You don't need to 
watch the video but it may help some people with the timing. Also I tried my 
best to get the most accurate chord names but I couldn't find the last two 
chords in any book or online chord finder so I just named them after the root 
note. If anyone has the correct chord names please send it to the e-mail above.

Additional note: I dont use the same exact chords in the video.

If you want me to stay

I'll be around today

I'm about to go
    Am7         D9
And then you'll know
          G7                       D   C#

When you're my woman takin' up my time

              Bm
How could you ever allow
          Am7    D9
I guess I wonder how
              G7                    F#7
How could you get out of pocket for fun
         Bm                            Am7   D9
When you know that you're never number two
       G7                  D   C#
Number one gonna be number one

Bm
I'll be good
  Am7    D9
I wish I could
