Human League Chords & Tabs

Version: 1 Type: Chords

Louise Chords

The fills at the end of every 2nd line are a basic (and pretty common) D riff thus: 
Dsus2 D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D. The riff timings can be a little tricky when singing along, but 
listen to the song and it will make sense.

The E A A at the end of the 3rd line of the chorus are 3 distinct "single hit" chords. 
Again, listen and it will make sense.

For those who didn't know, this song is the 2nd part of the story that was started in 
"Don't You Want Me". Enjoy!

D         Dsus2 D                  A D
 When he saw her getting of the bus
                  D riff
It seemed to wipe away the years
D                  Dsus2 D               A D
 Her face was older, just a little rough
                  D riff
But her eyes were still so clear
D                   Dsus2 D             A D
 He drank his coffee and he hurried out
                  D riff
Across before she walked away
D                  Dsus2 D                  A D
 Then he approached her like a little child
                       D riff
Too scared for what he had to say

D         D riff
 "Hello, Louise,
G       D riff
 Remember me?
D             D riff
 Now should we part
         E      E A A (palm mute or let it ring, whatever works)
Or stay awhile?
(No Chord)
As if we were still lovers"

D Dsus2 D A D D riff x2
[ Tab from: ]
D                Dsus2 D             A D
 She took a moment just to recognise
                       D riff
The man she'd known so well before
D                Dsus2 D         A D
 And as he started to apologise
               D riff
Lose any bitterness she bore
D                Dsus2 D               A D
 She gently put her finger on his lips
                    D riff
To let him know she understood
D                 Dsus2 D                     A D
 And with her suit case standing on the floor
                    D riff
Embraced him like a lover would

D         D riff
 He told Louise
G            D riff
 "You look so good
D             D riff
 It's just you see
            E     E A A
 You make me feel
(No Chord)
As if we were still lovers"

Solo with the verse chord sequence

[Spoken over the verse chord sequence]
It's not always true that time heals all wounds.
There are wounds that you don't wanna heal,
the memories of something really good,
something truly real, that you never found again.

(As if we were still lovers)

D                       Dsus2 D                A D
 And though they talked for just a little time
                     D riff
 Before she said she had to go
D                Dsus2 D            A D
 He saw the meeting as a tiny sign
                      D riff
 That told him all he had to know

D         D riff
 And so Louise
G             D riff
 Waved from the bus
D          D riff
 And as she left
               E     E A A
 She gave that smile
(No Chord)
As if they were still lovers
