Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...

Luka - Suzanne Vega

 

G           D

My name is Luka

   C              D

I live on the second floor

  G                 D

I live upstairs from you

 C                  D

Yes I think you've seen me before

Em           D                Em

If you hear something late at night

              D                    C

Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight

           D                 C

Just don't ask me what it was

           D                 C

Just don't ask me what it was

           D                 G

Just don't ask me what it was

 

I think it's because I'm clumsy

I try not to talk too loud

Maybe it's because I'm crazy

I try not to act too proud

They only hit you until you cry

And after that you don't ask why

You just don't argue anymore

You just don't argue anymore

You just don't argue anymore

 

Yes I think I'm OK

I walked into the door again

Well, if you ask that's what I'll say

And it's not your business anyway

I guess I'd like to be alone

With nothing broken, nothing thrown

Just don't ask me how I am

Just don't ask me how I am

Just don't ask me how I am

By the way, I didn't work this song out. A friend did.
