Bus Stop Tab
This hit was written by the great song writer Graham Gouldman and made famous by The Hollies.
I wrote an alternate Intro and Outro to make the song a little more interesting (the
Intro and Outro are also included). Also, you will see that I merely supplied the chords 
along with the lyrics instead of tabbing them. Enjoy.

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADGBE

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure

*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration. 
However, you will find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes 
and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.

VERSE 1

Am
Bus   stop,   wet   day,   she's   there,   I   say

Please   share   my   umbrella.

Bus   stop,   bus   goes,   she   stays,   love   grows

G
Under   my   umbrella.

C            G        Am/E
All   that   summer   we   enjoyed   it,

Dm                        Em
Wind   and   rain   and   shine.

Am                                                      Em          Am
That   umbrella,   we   employed   it.   By   August,   she   was   mine.

CHORUS

C/G               B7
Every   morning   I   would   see   her

Em       D          C
Waiting  at   the   stop,

Am
Sometimes   she'd   shopped   and   she   would

(small letters as single notes)
B7                       e/Em   d/Em   c/Em   b/Em
Show   me   what   she   bought.

C/G              B7
Other   people   stared   as   if   we

Em            D       C
Were   both   quite   insane.

Am
Someday   my   name   and   hers   are

B7                      Em
Going   to   be   the   same.

VERSE 2

Am
That's   the   way   the   whole   thing   started,

Silly   but   it's   true.

Thinkin'   of   a   sweet   romance,

G
Beginning   in   a   queue.

C            G           Am/E
Came   the   sun   the   ice   was   melting,

Dm                       Em
No   more   sheltering   now.

Am
Nice   to   think   that   that   umbrella

Em       Am
Led   me   to   a   vow.
