PASSIONATE KISSES (Lucinda Williams)
  * Mary-Chapin Carpenter's recording is in D, and I know she plays it in 
C with a capo at the second fret.
  * In the instrumental bits, I put bar lines (|) to separate measures;
everywhere else in the song, one chord is one measure.
  * The rhythm guitar doesn't actually play all those chords in the intro,
but it sounds neat.
  * Mix up some (9)'s with the C's and F's.

[intro; play twice]

C            G
   Is it too much to ask?
         Am7                        F
I want a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back
C          G
   Food to fill me up
    Am7              F
And warm clothes and all that stuff
C                   Em7
   Shouldn't I have this,
Shouldn't I have this?
Shouldn't I have all of this, and
C             F
   Passionate kisses
C             F
   Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
C             F
   Passionate kisses from
C  C(addF)  C  |  G  G(addE)  G  |  Am  Am(9)  Am  |  F  |
Is it too much to demand
I want a full house and a rock and roll band
Pens that won't run out of ink
And cool quiet and time to think


[Guitar solo; mostly the same chords as the verse, but it goes to G instead
of F the second time, then back to C.]

Do I want too much?
Am I going overboard to want that touch?
I shouted out to the night
Give me what I deserve, 'cause it's my right


[Repeat chorus, then fade on intro chords]

Someone met John Jenning's (MCC's guitarist) after a concert and asked
him how he plays this song in concert; he wrote it down in standard musical
notation, and I converted it to tablature.  (But there's no guarantee that
this is where John Jennings puts his fingers.)  The ">" marks are accents.
