Song Title: If I didn't love you I'd hate you
Artist: Squeeze


The last time I sent in a song, some of the chords shifted
slightly.  Listen to the song to get a better idea of how
to play it just in case.  :)
Please post corrections if I'm way off here.

If I Didn't Love You I'd Hate You - Squeeze

Intro |G|AGD|

A                G            D
     If I didn't love you I'd hate you
A                 G           D
     Watching you play in the bath
A                G            D
     A soap suds stickle back navy
A                      G       D
     A scrubbing brush landing craft
C                   G          G#min
     Your skin gets softer and warmer
C              G           G#min
     I pat you down with a towel
F#min             Emin        Amin
     Tonight it's love by the fire
G                 E
     My mind goes out on the prowl

F#
     If I - if I - if I - if I

A                G            D
     If I didn't love you I'd hate you
A                     G     D
     I'm playing your stereogram
A              G          D
     Singles remind me of kisses
A             G          D
     Albums remind me of plans
C                 G           G#min
     Tonight it's love by the fire
C                   G        G#min
     The wind plays over the coals
F#min           Emin         Amin
     Passionate looks are my fancy
G                     E
     But you turn the look into stone

F#
     If I - if I - if I - if I

F#
     If I didn't love you
A              F
     Would you sit and glow
D
     by the fire
A         F
     If I didn't love you
D                      A    F
     Would you make me feel so
D
     Maybe you love me
A   F D
     Oh...If I didn't love you
A F


F#
     If I - if I - if I - if I

G (play verse without words)

A                G            D
     If I didn't love you I'd hate you
A               G        D
     Cocoa mugs sit side by side
A                 G           D
     It's time to poke at the fire
A                   G      D
     But it's not tonight, looks I find
C             G         G#min
     Taking a bite on a biscuit
C               G          G#min
     The record jumps on a scratch
F#min             Emin        Amin
     Tonight it's love by the fire
G                     E
     The door of your love's on the latch

F#
     If I - if I - if I - if I

F#
     If I didn't love you
A              F
     Would you sit and glow
D
     by the fire
A         F
     If I didn't love you
D                      A    F
     Would you make me feel so
D
     Maybe you love me
A   F D
     Oh...If I didn't love you
A              F
     Would you sit and glow
D
     by the fire
A         F
     If I didn't love you
D                      A    F
     Would you make me feel so
D
     Maybe you love me
A   F D
     Oh...If I didn't love you
A F

F#
     If I - if I - if I - Didn't - didn't - didn't - Love you - love
you - love you

A different interpretation

Words basically taken from what's above, with revised (and hopefully more
correct) chords.

Figured out by Geordan Rosario (geordan@csua.berkeley.edu) with some help from
Ben Scott (scotsman@csua.berkeley.edu).  Ben rewound the CD relentlessly for
me.

----------
Footnote 1:  If played on keyboard, the D must be played D-F#-A.  Won't sound
             right otherwise.
Footnote 2:  That's right, no chord split F#.  i.e., the bassist closes the
             song with F#.
