More Than A Feeling

Words & Music:

Tom Scholz


It's been hard to do any of the Boston tabs since the death of Brad Delp.  But here goes...  This is fully transcribed in Guitar World and the May 2002 issue of Guitar One.


Dsus4  D   Csus2  G/b  G   [arpeggiate and repeat until you are ready.


  Dsus4          D            Csus2       G/B  G  [etc.]

I looked out this morning and the sun was gone,

Turned on some music to start my day,

Then lost myself in a familiar song,

  Dsus4        D       Csus2         G/B

I closed my eyes and I slipped away...



Am  Em/G  D  |  G5  C  Em  D  C5  |  G5  C  Em  D



     G              C     Em             D

It's more than a feeling (more than a feeling)

D      G             C         Em              D

When I hear that old song they used to play

                               (more than a feeling)

    G       C         Em             D

And I begin dreaming (more than a feeling)

       G            C          Eb   Em7

'Til I see Marianne walk a-way,

            Asus4     A       G  D/F#  Em7

I see my Marianne walking away.



D5  Csus2  G/B  G  [2x]


So many people have come and gone,

Their faces fade as the years go by;

Yet I still recall as I wonder on,

as clear as the sun In the summer sky




BRIDGE:  Bm  A  G  D/F#  Asus4  A


GUITAR SOLO OVER:  D  G5  D/F#  A  [3x]  D  Bm  Em  Asus4  A   G

G5  D  Em7  D  |  C  G/B  G5  D5  |  C  G/B  G5  [right to verse 3]


When I'm tired I'm thinking cold,

I hide in my music, forget the day.

And dream of a girl I used to know

I closed my eyes and she slipped away.


D5  Duss4  D5 |  Csus2  G/B  G  [3x]

D  Dsus4  Csus2  G/B  |  Am  Em/G  D

G5  C  |  Em  D  | [repeat this line and out]


Dsus4 = x x 0 2 3 3         Csus2 = x 3 0 0 3 x    G/B = x 2 0 0 3 3
