No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature
(Bachmann/Cummings)
Lyrics taken from The Guess Who Home Page
Music transcribed by: Scott Holcomb
Main Theme:
| \ \ \ \ |
  G   F C

Verse 1 (lyrics begin on beat 4):
C      G     F  C      G     F
Lonely feeling, deep inside
C      G    F       C     G    F
Find a corner where I can hide
C      G      F  C        G    F
Silent footsteps crowding me
C      G     F       C     G
Sudden darkness, but I can see

Riff 1:
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|--5--3--------------|
|--------5--3--------|
|--------------6--3--|

Chorus:
G           F
 No sugar tonight in my coffee
C           G
 No sugar tonight in my tea
G            F
 No sugar to stand beside me
C            G
 No sugar to run with me
G            F
 Da do da da da da do da da
C            G
 Da do da da da do da da
G            F
 Da do da da da da do da da
C         G  with Riff 1
 Da do da da

Verse 2:
In the silence of her mind
Quiet movements where I can find
Grabbing for me with her eyes
Now I'm falling from her skies

(Chorus)

Part 2, Verse 1:
G                  F   C
Jock says yes, and I believe him
        G                       F    C
When we talk about the things I say
    G                            F       C
She hasn't have the faith or the guts to leave him
             G                        F    C
When they're standing in each other's way
       G                  F             C
You're driven back not to places you've been to
    G                        F     C
You wonder what you're gonna find
    G                             F        C
You know you've been wrong but it won't be long
           G             F   C
Before you leave 'em all far behind

Part 2, Chorus:
                C                        G
'Cause it's the new mother nature taking over
         C                         G
It's the new splendid lady come to call
         C                        G
It's the new mother nature taking over
                 G   F      C          G
She's getting us all, she's getting us all

Part 2, Verse 2:
Jock said no when I came back last time
It's looking like I lost a friend
It's no use calling 'cause the sky is falling
And I'm getting pretty near the end
A smoke filled room in a corner basement
The situation must be right
A bag of goodies and a bottle of wine
We're gonna get it on right tonight

(Part 2, Chorus)

These 2 parts are sung together, but they are the same words
as the 1st verse of each part of the song (No Sugar & New
Mother Nature).  See above for the correct chords patterns.

Lonely feeling     Jock says yes and I believe him
Deep inside        When we talk about the things I say
Find a corner      She hasn't got the faith or the guts
                        to leave him
Where I can hide   When they're standing in each other's way
Silent footsteps   You're driven back not to places
                        you've been to
Crowding me        You wonder what you're gonna find
Sudden darkness    You know you've been wrong and it
                        won't be long
But I can see      Before you leave 'em all far behind

(Part 2 Chorus)

Da do da da...
