Calling all 12oz music buffs!

Recommended Posts

I was listening to "If Loving You is Wrong" by Luther Ingram and noticed a familiar gutiar riff so I checked google to see if anyone else noticed, but no luck. The riff, I'm pretty sure, is used in a rap song, but no luck identifying it. So of course when all else fails I turn to 12oz.

 

Heres the song via youtube (you can ignore the greys anatomy clips if you like) but the riff is really noticeable around 2:54:

 

Thanks in advance and props to whoever figures it out first.

Em [2: Em9]

If loving you is wrong

Gmaj7/D

I don't want to be right

Cmaj7

If being right means being without you

Am Bm Cmaj7 Bm

I'd rather live a wrongdoing life

 

Your mama and daddy say it's a shame

It's a downright disgrace

But as long as I got you by my side

I don't care what your people say

 

Am

Your friends tell you it's no future

Em

In loving a married man

Am

If I can't see you when I want

Em

I'll see you when I can

 

Chorus:

 

Cmaj7

If loving you is wrong

Em

I don't want to be right

Cmaj7

If loving you is wrong

Em

I don't want to be right

 

Verse 2:

 

Am I wrong to fall

So deeply in love with you

Knowing I got a wife and two little children

Depending on me too

 

And am I wrong to hunger

For the gentleness of your touch

Knowing I got someone else at home

Who needs me just as much

 

[1: And] are you wrong to give your love

To a married man

And am I wrong for tryin' to hold on

To the best thing I ever had

 

[repeat chorus]

 

Instrumental break:

 

(chords as per first four lines of verse)

 

[repeat verse 2 from "Are you wrong...]

Coda:

 

Em

I don't want to be right

Cmaj7

If it means being without you

Em

I don't want to be right

If it means sleeping at night

Em

I don't want to be right

Cmaj7

If loving you is wrong [fade]
