...7 ROOMS OF GLOOM... by The Four Tops
----------------------.................

*from 'Reach Out' (1967)*

(modified from Andrew Roger's original tab)


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Bbm)


Chorus 1:

Am
 I see a house,
 (Seven...
F
 A house of stone,
 Rooms),
A lonely house,
 (Filled...
                Em7
'Cos now you've gone.
        ...with gloom).

	    Gm
      Seven rooms,
(Just seven rooms,
That's all it is,
               Ebmaj7
Seven rooms of gloom.
         ...Of gloom).

	     Abmaj7     C#
 I live with emptiness,
(Filled with emptiness),
	     F
Without your tenderness.

Verse 1:

	     Dm
You took the dream I had for us,
	  Gm          Dm
Turned my dreams into dust.

	    Dm
I watch the phone; never rings,
	    Gm              Dm
I watch the door that never rings.

	  Dm
Bring you back into my life,
	  Gm            Dm
Turn this darkness into light.

          Dm
I'm all a-lone in this house,
          Gm           Dm
Turn this house into a home.

Bridge 1:

Bb6          Bb       F           A7
 I need your touch to comfort me,
Bb6                 Bb
 The tender, tender arms,
     F             A7
That once held me.

Chorus 2:

             Am
Without your love,
            (Seven...
             F
Your love in-side,
          ...Rooms),
This house is just a place,
(Filled...
           Em7
To run and hide.
...With gloom).

	    Gm
      Seven rooms,
(Just seven rooms,
That's all it is,
               Ebmaj7
Seven rooms of gloom.
         ...Of gloom).
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/f/four_tops/7_rooms_of_gloom_crd.html ]
	  Abmaj7     C#
 Rooms of emptiness,
(Rooms of emptiness),
	     F
Without your tenderness.

Verse 2:

              Dm
Don't make me live from day to day,
             Gm                 Dm
Watching the clock that ticks a-way.

        Dm
Another day, another way,
        Gm               Dm
Another reason for me to stay.

           Dm
I need you here, here with me,
           Gm                Dm
I need you darling desperate-ly.

    Dm
I'm all alone, all alone,
        Gm                 Dm
In this house that's not a home.

Bridge 2:

Bb6          Bb      F               A7
 I miss your love, I once had known.
Bb6          Bb
 I miss your kiss,
            F              A7
That was my very, very own.

Chorus 3:

Am
 Empty silence,
(Seven...
    F
Sur-rounding me,
 ...Rooms),
Lonely walls,
      (Filled...
              Em7
They stare at me.
...With gloom).

	     Abmaj7     C#
 I live with emptiness,
(Filled with emptiness),
	     F
Without your tenderness.

Verse 3:

        Dm
All the windows are painted black,
               Gm                   Dm
And wait right here, until you come back.

          Dm
I'll keep waiting, waiting,
           Gm            Dm
Until your face, again I see.

Outro:

Dm, Gm  Dm

(Repeat to Fade)
