Mengelmoeskardoes - Juanita du Plessis
Album:  10 Jaar Platinum Treffers



Because this song is written in the key of E, the chord patterns may
be a little challenging. Note that the B and F#m chords are very
similar, the major differences are the E-string and the “4” notes that
are shifted down a string. I shift my index finger down from the F#m
to the B and keep the tip touching the E-sting to mute it as I play
the B so I can strum all six strings for both chords.

If you want to make the fingering even easier, you can transcribe the
song up 2 semi-tones to D. This changes the chords from A-B-E-F#m to
C-D-G-Em. Note, that this does change the song’s key so it will not
sound exactly like the recording.

Here are the chords used in the song for quick reference:
       A       B       E       F#m      
e:-----0-------2-------0-------2-------
B:-----2-------4-------0-------2-------
G:-----2-------4-------1-------2-------
D:-----2-------4-------2-------4-------
A:-----0-------2-------2-------4-------
E:-----0---------------0-------2-------

Have fun! Please let me know if there any changes/suggestions you have
to make the tab better,

======================================================================
Here is an English translation for all of those people out there like
myself, who dig the music, but are new to the language:
======================================================================

More than the decay in a rotting pumpkin
Greater than Hentiesbaai's wengaljoen
More than the woes in a mengelmoeskardoes

More than all the teenagers on mixed chat
Further than the sixes of Gibbs' bat
More than the spirit at the Klein Karoo arts-festival

CHORUS:
You think you love me
But I love you more
You think your heart beats for me
But I can’t count the times
If you want to weigh my love, I’ll hold back
Kiss my quickly and I will be surprised
Say it to me,  then I’ll show you over and over
I love you more

Longer than the twists in the Cape district
Deeper than the sea in Weskus Bay
Wider than wide
Higher than the highest mountain

More than all the bubbles in my bubble bath
Deeper than the potholes on the northwest path
Further than far
Longer than the N1 line

CHORUS: (2X)
You think you love me
But I love you more
You think your heart beats for me
But I can’t count the times
If you want to weigh my love, I’ll hold back
Kiss my quickly and I will be surprised
Say it to me,  then I’ll show you over and over
I love you more
