Abba - Mamma Mia  

Originally in D, I play in A

Intro

Aaug Aaug 
x2

E/A 
I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
E/A 
So I made up my mind it must come to an end
Aaug 
Look at me now,  will I ever learn?
Aaug 
I don't know how, but I suddenly lose control
There's a fire within my soul
A/C# 
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
A/C# 
One more look and I forget everything

Mamma mia, here I go again
G/D A/D 
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
G/D A/D 
My my, just how much I've missed you

E/G# 
Yes, I've been broken-hearted
F#m C#m/E 
Blue since the day we parted
G/D Bm 
Why, why did I ever let you go?
F#m 
Mamma mia, now I really know
G/D Bm 
My my, I could never let you go

Aaug Aaug 
E/A 
I've been angry and sad about things that you do
E/A 
I can't count all the times that I told you we're through
Aaug 
And when you go,  when you slam the door
Aaug 
I think you know,  that you won't be away too long
You know that I'm not that strong
A/C# 
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
A/C# 
One more look and I forget everything

Mamma mia, here I go again

My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?

F#m C#m/E 
Blue since the day we parted
G/D Bm 
Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, even if I say
G/D A/D 
Bye bye, leave me now or never
Mamma mia, it's a game we play
G/D A/D 
Bye bye doesn't mean forever

Mamma mia, here I go again
G/D A/D 
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?

My my, just how much I missed you

AC DC - You Shook Me All Night Long  

Originally in G, I play in A capo 2

Intro

  →  →  →  → 
 →  →  →  → 

x2

Riff goes through the verse, approximating here

She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman that I ever seen
She had the sightless eyes, telling me no lies
Knockin' me out with those American thighs

Taking more than her share, had me  fighting for air
She told me to come, but I was already there
'Cause the walls start shaking, the earth was quaking
E7 
My mind was aching, and we weren't thinkin' and 

A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long
A/C# A/C# 
Yeah you, shook me all night long

Working double time on the seduction line
She was one of a kind, she's just mine, all mine
Wanted no applause, just a nother course
Made a meal out of me and came back for more

Had to cool me down to take a nother round
Now I'm back in the ring to take another swing
'Cause the walls were shaking, the earth was quaking
E7 
My mind was aching, and we weren't thinkin' and 

A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long
A/C# A/C# 
Yeah you, shook me all night long, knockin' me out
A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long, you had me shakin'
A/C# 
And you shook me all night long
Yeah you shook me, well you took me

Solo on verse chords if appropriate

A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long, oooh
A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long, yeah yeah
A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long, you really got me and
A/C# A/C# 
You shook me all night long, yeah you shook me

Hard stop on "you" (yes, that's really how the song ends)

A/C# 
 Yeah you shook me, oh no you

Aerosmith - Cryin'  

Originally in A, I play in D or D capo 1

The highest part is the "breathin' room" after

the first chorus, it goes up to the 4.

When acoustic, I also play something for the main riff

that looks a little more like Bb5 Bb5/G Bb5 C5,

or Eb Eb Bb5 C5.  Even just Bb5 Bb5 Bb5 C5 works.

Intro

D#5 F5 A#5 C5 
 x3
D#5 F5 A#5 C5 D#5 
There was a time
Bm F#m 
When I was so broken-hearted
Love wasn't much of a friend of mine
The tables have turned, yeah
Bm F#m 
'Cause me and them ways have parted
That kind of love was the killin' kind, listen

All I want is someone I can't resist

Vox start this line on the same note as the last line,

and go a half-step up on "way"

I know all I need to know by the way that I got kissed

I was cryin' when I met you
Bm 
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
F#m 
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do, down on me

Vox in on the 1 of whatever chord is last in this phrase.

That's C if you're playing in D.  Chords are just the intro

riff.

D#5 F5 A#5 C5 
      Now there's not even breathin' room
D#5 F5 A#5 C5 
      Between pleasure and pain
D#5 F5 A#5 C5 
      Yea you cry when we're makin' love
D#5 F5 A#5 C5 D#5 
   Must be one and the same

It's down on me
Bm F#m 
Yeah I got to tell you one thing
It's been on my mind, girl I gotta say
We're partners in crime
Bm F#m 
You got that certain something
What you give to me takes my breath away

Now the word out on the street is the devil's in your kiss
If our love goes up in flames it's a fire I can't resist

I was cryin' when I met you
Bm 
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
F#m 
Now I'm dyin' 'cause I let you
Do what you do, down on me

Solo over intro chords

Vox in on the 5 of the first chord

That's a D# if you're playing in D

G# D# 
'Cause what you got inside
G# D# 
Ain't where your love should stay

Vox down a whole step on "our", then up a whole step to "ain't",

and up a half-step on "give".

C# G# 
Yeah, our love, sweet love, ain't love
Yill ya give your heart away

Note the minor chords are switched in this chorus

I was cryin' when I met you
F#m 
Now I'm tryin' to forget you
Your love is sweet misery
I was cryin' just to get you
Bm 
Now I'm dyin' to let you
Do what you do, down on  baby baby...

Solo

F#m

Arlo Guthrie - City of New Orleans  

Vocal note - melody starts on the 5

Originally in G, I play in D capo 3, so in F

Riding on the City of New Orleans
Bm 
Illinois Central, Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Bm 
Three conductors, and twenty five sacks of mail

Bm 
All along the southbound odyssey
F#m 
The train pulls out of Kankakee
And rolls along the houses, farms and fields

Bm 
Passing trains that have no name
F#m 
And freight yards full of old black men
And graveyards of the rusted automobiles

Good morning America, how are you?
Bm 
Say don't you know me, I'm your native son
Bm 
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Dealing card games with the old men in the club cars
Bm 
penny a point, ain't no one keeping score
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Bm 
And feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor

Bm 
And the sons of Pullman porters
F#m7 
And the sons of engineers
Ride their fathers' magic carpet made of steel

Bm 
Mothers with their babes asleep
F#m7 
Rocking to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

Good morning America, how are you?
Bm 
Say don't you know me, I'm your native son
Bm 
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Nighttime on the City of New Orleans
Bm 
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennesee
Halfway home, and we'll be there by morning
Bm 
Through the Misissippi darkness, rolling down to the sea

Bm 
But all the towns and people seem
F#m7 
To fade into a bad dream
The steel rail still ain't heard the news

Bm 
The conductor sings his songs again
F#m7 
The passengers will please refrain
This train's got the disappearin' railroad blues

Good night America, how are you?
Bm 
Say don't you know me, I'm your native son
Bm 
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won't let show

Let an extra measure hang here on C

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'd understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Let an extra measure hang here on C

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

G6 
Call me (if you need a friend)
G6 
Call me (call me)

Call me (if you need a friend)

Billy Joel - Keeping the Faith  

Intro

Originally in D; I play in A capo 2, so really in B

If it seems like I've been lost in let's remember

If you think I'm feeling older and missing my younger days

Oh, then you should have known me much better

Cause my past is something that never

Got in my way  oh no

Still I would not be here now if I never had the hunger

And I'm not ashamed to say the wild boys were my friends

Cause I never felt the desire 'til their music set me on fire

E6 
And then I was saved, yeah
E6 
That's why I'm keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Keeping the faith

We wore matador boots

Only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel
Iridescent socks with the same color shirt
And a tight pair of chinos

put on my shark skin jacket

You know the kind with the velvet collar

And ditty-bop shades

I took a fresh pack of Luckies and a mint called Sen-Sen
My old man's Trojans and his Old Spice after shave

Combed my hair in a pompadour

Like the rest of the Romeos wore

E6 
A permanent wave yeah
E6 
We were keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Keeping the faith

Bridge

You can get just so much from a good thing
You can linger too long in your dreams
Say goodbye to the oldies but goodies
Bm7 
Cause the good old days weren't always good
E7 
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

Learned stickball as a formal education

Lost a lot of fights but it taught me how to lose O.K.

heard about sex but not enough
I found you could dance and still look tough anyway

I found out a man ain't just being macho
Ate an awful lot of late night drive-in food drank a lot of take-home pay

thought I was the Duke of Earl

When I made it with a red-haired girl

E6 
In a Chevrolet 
E6 
We were keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Keeping the faith

Bridge

You can get just so much from a good thing
You can linger too long in your dreams
Say goodbye to the oldies but goodies
Bm7 
Cause the good old days weren't always good
E7 
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

Instrumental, listed here with lyrics but I usually skip if

a solo is not appropriate.

You can get just so much from a good thing
You can linger too long in your dreams
Say goodbye to the oldies but goodies
Bm7 
Cause the good old days weren't always good
E7 
And tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems

Now I told you my reasons for the whole revival

Now I'm going outside to have an
Ice cold beer in the shade

I'm going to listen to my 45's

Ain't it wonderful to be alive
When the rock 'n' roll 

E6 
Plays yeah
E6 
When the memory stays Yeah
E6 
I'm keeping the faith
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Keeping the faith

Billy Joel - Only the Good Die Young  

Originally in C, I play in G capo 5 (so still in C)

Intro

Em 
Em 
Em 
Come out Virginia, don't let me wait
You Catholic girls start much too late
Em 
But sooner or later it comes down to fate
might as well be the one

Em 
Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray
They built you a temple and locked you away
Em 
But they never told you the price that you pay
For things that you might have done

Only the good die young
That's what I said 
Only the good die young
Only the good die young

Em 
You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd
We ain't too pretty we ain't too proud
Em 
We might be laughing a bit too loud
But that never hurt no one

Em 
So come on Virginia show me a sign
Send up a signal I'll throw you a line
Em 
The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind
Never lets in the sun

Darlin' only the good die young
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa 
I tell ya only the good die young
Only the good die young

Bridge

You got a nice white dress and a
Party on your confirmation
You got a brand new soul, And a cross of gold
But Virginia they didn't give you
Quite enough information
You didn't count on me 
When you were counting on your rosary
G/B G/B Am7 
Oh woah woah woah

Em 
They say there's a heaven for those who will wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
Em 
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
The sinners are much more fun

You know that only the good die young
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa 
I tell ya only the good die young
Only the good die young

Solo on bridge chords if appropriate

Bridge

You say your mother told you all that I could
Give you was a reputation
Awww, she never cared for me
But did she ever say a prayer for me?
G/B G/B Am7 
Oh woah woah woah

Rhythm change in the melody here

Em 
Come out come out come out Virgina dont Let me wait
You Catholic girls start much too late
Em 
Sooner or later it comes down to fate
might as well be the one

You know that only the good die young
Tell you baby 
You know that only the good die young
Only the good die young

Only the goooo...   
Only the good die young 

Oooh... ooooh...   
Oooh... oooh...

Brenda and Eddie were the popular steadies
And the king and the queen of the prom
G7/B 
Riding around with the car top down and the radio on
Nobody looked any finer
Or was more of a hit at the Parkway Diner
We never knew we could want more than that out of life
Am G/B 
Surely Brenda and Eddie would always know how to survive

C/E 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh
C/E 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh

Brenda and Eddie were still going steady in the summer of seventy five
G7/B 
When they decided the marriage would be at the end of July
Everyone said they were crazy
Brenda you know that you're much too lazy
And Eddie could never afford to live that kind of life
Am G/B 
Oh, but there we were waving Brenda and Eddie goodbye

C/E 
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh

But it's always the same in the end
F/C F/C 
They got a divorce as a matter of course
And they parted the closest of friends
F/C F/C 
Then the king and the queen went back to the green
Em A9 C/D 
But you can never go back there again, oh oh, oh oh

Brenda and Eddie had had it already by the summer of seventy five
G7/B 
From the high to the low to the end of the show
For the rest of their lives
They couldn't go back to the greasers
The best they could do was pick up their pieces
We always knew they would both find a way to get by

Am G/B 
That's all I heard about Brenda and Eddie
Am G/B 
Can't tell you more cause I told you already

Somewhere along the line
Well, and it surely will catch up to him

Billy Joel - Still Rock and Roll to Me  

Intro

Em 
What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?
Bb 
Can't you tell that your tie's too wide?
Em 
Maybe I should buy some old tab collars
Bb 
Welcome back to the age of jive
Em Am 
Where have you been hidin' out lately, honey?
Em 
You can't dress trashy till you spend a lot of money

Em Bb 
Everybody's talking 'bout the new sound
Am 
Funny, but it's still rock and roll to me

Em 
What's the matter with the car I'm driving?
Bb 
Can't you tell it's out of style?
Em 
Should I get a set of white wall tires?
Bb 
Are you gonna cruise the miracle mile?

Em Am 
Nowadays you can't be too sentimental

Your best bet's a true baby, blue Continental
Em Bb 
Hot funk, cool punk even if it's old junk
Am 
It's still rock and roll to me

Bridge

Oh it doesn't matter what they say in the papers

'Cause it's always been the same old scene
There's a new band in town but you can't get the sound
Ab 
From a story in a magazine
Eb 
Aimed at your average teen 

Em 
How about a pair of pink sidewinders
Bb 
And a bright orange pair of pants?
Em 
Well, you could really be a Beau Brummel baby
Bb 
If you just give it half a chance

All you need are looks and a whole lotta money
Em Bb 
It's the next phase, new wave, dance craze, anyways

It's still rock and roll to me

Hard stops on each chord

Em Bb 
Everybody's talking about the new sound

Billy Joel - Stop in Nevada

He always found it hard to take her
Em7 A7sus4 G/D 
She wouldn't listen to advice 
D9 D/F# 
And though he never tried to make her 
Em7 G/B 
She often thought it would be nice 

D/F# 
Oh, and now she's headin' out to California 
It's been a long time comin' but she's 
D/F# 
Feeling like a woman tonight 
And she left a little letter said
D/F# 
She's gonna make a stop in Nevada
D/F# Em7 
Goodbye, goodbye

Bm7 A/C# 
D/F# 
She tried for years to be a good wife
Em7 A7sus4 G/D 
It never quite got off the ground 
D9 D/F# 
And all those stories of the good life 
Em7 G/B 
Convinced her not to hang around 

D/F# 
Oh, and now she's headin' out to California 
And she doesn't know what's comin' but
D/F# 
She's sure of what she's leaving behind 
And she left a little letter said

She's gonna make a stop in Nevada

D/F#

Em7 A7sus4 G/D 
She knows it would be worse to stay 
D9 D/F# 
He wouldn't understand the reasons 
Em7 G/B 
That make a woman run away 

D/F# 
Oh, and now she's headin' out to California 
With some money in her pocket she's a

Billy Joel - Summer, Highland Falls (PPM arrangement)  

This is based on the Peter, Paul, and Mary version, which is in E.  Billy Joel's is in F.

I play in D, capo 1 or 2, so really in Eb or E.

Intro

x4

D/F# 
They say that these are not the best of times
D/F# Em7 D/F# 
But they're the only times I've ever known  
D/F# D/F# 
And I believe there is a time for meditation
Em7 
In cathedrals of our own  

Bm Bm/A 
Now I have seen that sad surrender 
D/F# 
In my lovers' eyes
E/G# 
And I can only stand apart and sympathize
Em7 
For we are always what our situations hand us
It's either sadness or euphoria 
Sadness or euphoria  

D/F# 
And so we'll argue and we'll compromise
D/F# Em7 
And realize that nothing's really changed  
D/F# 
For all our mutual experience
D/F# Em7 
Our separate conclusions are the same 

Bm Bm/A 
Now we are forced to recognize our
D/F# 
Inhumanity
E/G# 
Our reason coexists with our insanity
Em7 
And so we choose between reality and madness
It's either sadness or euphoria  

If going into a solo here, the F# comes right after the D

Sadness or euphoria

Instrumental if appropriate on chorus chords, with F# leading in

F# Bm Bm/A D/F# 
E/G# 
Em7 
 

PPM do a full verse here on "la"

Bm Bm/A D/F# 
How thoughtlessly we dissipate our energies
E/G# 
Perhaps we don't fulfill each other's fantasies
Em7 
So we stand upon the ledges of our lives
With our respective similarities 
It's either sadness or euphoria

Hanging end on G, I usually stop here

PPM do *another* full verse here on "la"

Billy Joel - Tell Her About It  

Originally in Bb, I play in A

Intro

       x2

Listen boy, I don't want to see you let a good thing slip away
You know I don't like watching anybody make the same mistakes I made
C#m Bm 
She's a real nice girl and she's always there for you
Dm A/C# Bm 
But a nice girl wouldn't tell you what you should do

Oh, listen boy, I'm sure that you think you got it all under control
You don't want somebody telling you the way to stay in someone's soul
C#m Bm 
You're a big boy now and you'll never let her go
Dm A/C# Bm 
But that's just the kind of thing she ought to know

G#m 
Tell her about it, tell her everything you feel
C#m C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 
Give her every reason to accept that you're for real
G#m 
Tell her about it, tell her all your crazy dreams
C#m C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 B7 
Let her know you need her, let her know how much she means

   Oooh x2

Listen, boy, it's not automatically a certain guarantee
To insure yourself, you've got to provide communication constantly
C#m Bm 
When you love someone you're always insecure
Dm A/C# Bm 
And there's only one good way to reassure

G#m 
Tell her about it, let her know how much you care
C#m C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 
When she can't be with you, tell her you wish you were there
G#m 
Tell her about it every day before you leave
C#m C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 B7 
Pay her some attention, give her something to believe

Bridge

Em 
 'Cause now and then she'll get to worrying
Am Em D/F# 
Just because you haven't spoken for so long  
Em 
And though you may not have done anything
Am B/D# 
Will that be a consolation when she's gone?

Listen boy, it's good information from a man who's made mistakes
Just a word or two that she gets from you could be the difference that it makes
C#m Bm 
She's a trusting soul, she's put her trust in you
Dm A/C# Bm 
But a girl like that won't tell you what you should do

G#m 
Tell her about it, tell her everything you feel
C#m C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 
Give her every reason to accept that you're for real
G#m 
Tell her about it, tell her all your crazy dreams
C#m C#m7 F#m7 B7sus4 B7 
Let her know you need her, let her know how much she means

Outro

Tell her about it, tell her how you feel right now
Tell her about it, the girl don't want to wait too long
You got to tell her about it, tell her now and you won't go wrong
You got to tell her about it, before it gets too late you've got to...

Billy Joel - The Downeaster 'Alexa'  

Originally in Am, I play in Em.

Sometimes capo 2; highest note is Bb in Am

Intro

Em 

Vox start on I II III (B in G)

Em 
Well I'm on the Downeaster Alexa
And I'm cruising through Block Island Sound
Am 
I have charted a course to the Vineyard
But tonight I am Nantucket bound

We took on diesel back in Montauk yesterday
Em D/F# 
And left this morning from the bell in Gardiner's Bay
Like all the locals here I've had to sell my home
Em D/F# 
Too proud to leave I worked my fingers to the bone

Em 
So I could own my Downeaster Alexa
And I go where the ocean is deep
Am 
There are giants out there in the canyons
And a good captain can't fall asleep

I've got bills to pay and children who need clothes
Em D/F# 
I know there's fish out there but where God only knows
They say these waters aren't what they used to be
Em D/F# 
But I've got people back on land who count on me

Em 
So if you see my Downeaster Alexa
And if you work with the rod and the reel
Am 
Tell my wife I am trolling Atlantis
And I still have my hands on the wheel

Interlude, lots of ayyy-o and accordion noises

Em 
Em 
Now I drive my Downeaster Alexa
More and more miles from shore every year
Am 
Since they tell me I can't sell no stripers
And there's no luck in swordfishing here

I was a bayman like my father was before
Em D/F# 
Can't make a living as a bayman anymore
There ain't much future for a man who works the sea
Em D/F# 
But there ain't no island left for islanders like me

D/F# Em 
Aayooo

Billy Joel - The Entertainer  

Intro

G/B 
am the entertainer and I know just where stand
G/B 
Another Serenader and another long-haired band
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
Am7 Cmaj7 
And I won't be here in another year
If I don't stay on the charts

C/E G/D 
am the entertainer and I've had to pay my price
G/B 
The things I did not know at first I learned by doin' twice
Ah, but still they come to haunt me
C/E 
Still they want their say
So I've learned to dance with a hand in my pants
Am7 Cmaj7 
Let 'em rub my neck and I write 'em a check
And they go their merry way

C/E G/D 
am the entertainer, been all around the world
G/B 
I've played all kinds of palaces and laid all kinds of girls
C/E 
can't remember faces, I don't remember names
Ah, but what the hell, you know it's just as well
Am7 Cmaj7 
'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
 It all becomes the same

C/E G/D 
am the entertainer, I bring to you my songs
G/B 
I'd like to spend a day or two, but I can't stay that long
C/E 
No, I've got to meet expenses, I got to stay in line
Gotta get those fees to the agencies
Am7 Cmaj7 
And I'd love to stay but there's bills to pay
So I just don't have the time

C/E G/D 
am the entertainer, I come to do my show
G/B 
You've heard my latest record, it's been on the radio
Ah, it took me years to write it, they were the
C/E 
Best years of my life
Cmaj7 
It was a beautiful song, but it ran too long
Am7 
If you're gonna have a hit, you gotta make it fit
So they cut it down to 3:05

C/E G/D 
I am the entertainer, the idol of my age
G/B 
make all kinds of money when I go on the stage
Ah, you've seen me in the papers
C/E 
I've been in the magazines
But if I go cold I won't get sold
Am7 
I'll get put in the back in the discount rack
Like another can of beans

Hanging stops

C/E G/D 
am the entertainer and I know just where stand
G/B 
Another Serenader and another long-haired band
C/E 
Today I am your champion, I may have won your hearts
But I know the game, you'll forget my name
Am7 Cmaj7 
And I won't be here in another year
If I don't stay on the charts

Billy Joel - The Longest Time  

Originally in Eb, I play in A capo 3 (so in C)

Highest note is only the 4, but it sounds terrible to miss

those 4's on "I'm so in*spired* by you" and "that hasn't

hap*pened*".

Oh, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time

D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
If you said goodbye to me tonight
D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
There would still be music left to write
F# Bm 
What else could I do
A7 D7 
I'm so inspired by you
Em 
That hasn't happened for the longest time

D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
Once thought my innocence was gone
D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
Now I know that happiness goes on
F# Bm 
That's where you found me
A7 D7 
When you put your arms around me
Em 
I haven't been there for the longest time

Oh, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time

D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
I'm that voice you're hearing in the hall
D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
And the greatest miracle of all
F# Bm 
Is how I need you
A7 D7 
And how you needed me too
Em 
That hasn't happened for the longest time

A7 Bm 
Maybe this won't last very long
C#7 
But you feel so right
And I could be wrong
F#m Bm 
Maybe I've been hoping too hard
E7 
But I've gone this far
A7 
And it's more than I hoped for

D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
Who knows how much further we'll go on
D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
Maybe I'll be sorry when you're gone
F# Bm 
I'll take my chances
A7 D7 
I forgot how nice romance is
Em 
I haven't been there for the longest time

A7 Bm 
I had second thoughts at the start
C#7 
I said to myself
Hold on to your heart
F#m Bm 
Now I know the woman that you are
E7 
You're wonderful so far
A7 
And it's more than I hoped for

D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
don't care what consequence it brings
D/C# D/B Dmaj7/A 
have been fool for lesser things
F# Bm 
I want you so bad
A7 D7 
I think you ought to know that
Em 
I intend to hold you for the longest time

Oh, oh, oh, oh
For the longest time
Oh, oh, oh
For the longest time

Billy Joel - The River of Dreams  

Intro

Gmaj7 Gmaj7 Cmaj7 D6 
In the middle of (I go walking in)
G9 
In the middle of (I go walking in)
Cmaj7 
In the middle of (I go walking in)
In the middle of (I go walking in)

In the middle of the night

I go walking in my sleep

G7 
From the mountains of faith
Cmaj7 
To the river so deep

I must be looking for something

Something sacred I lost

G7 
But the river is wide
Cmaj7 
And it's too hard to cross

Em Gmaj7 
And even though I know the river is wide
Cmaj7 
I walk down every evening and stand on the shore
Cmaj7 Gmaj7 
I try to cross to the opposite side
A7 
So I can finally find out what I've been looking for

In the middle of the night

I go walking in my sleep

G7 
Through the valley of fear
Cmaj7 
To a river so deep

I've been searching for something

Taken out of my soul

G7 
Something I could never lose
Cmaj7 
Something somebody stole

Em Gmaj7 
don't know why I go walking at night
Cmaj7 
But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
Cmaj7 Gmaj7 
hope it doesn't take the rest of my life
A7 
Until I find what it is I've been looking for

Hang for 1 measure

In the middle of the night

I go walking in my sleep

G7 
Through the jungle of doubt
Cmaj7 
To the river so deep

I know I'm searching for something

Something so undefined

G7 
That it can only be seen
Cmaj7 
By the eyes of the blind

In the middle of the night 

Note the lyrics are reversed wrt the intro

I go walking in the, in the middle of the
G7 
I go walking in the, in the middle of the
Cmaj7 
I go walking in the, in the middle of the
I go walking in the, in the middle of the

I go walking in the, in the middle of the

G7 
I go walking in the, in the middle of the
Cmaj7 
I go walking in the, in the middle of the
I go walking in the, in the middle of the

Em Gmaj7 
I'm not sure about a life after this
Cmaj7 
God knows I've never been a spiritual man
Cmaj7 Gmaj7 
Baptized by the fire

Through the desert of truth

To the river so deep

We all end in the ocean

We all start in the streams

G7 
We're all carried along
Cmaj7 
By the river of dreams

In the middle of the night 

I go walking in the, in the middle of the

Billy Joel - You May Be Right  

Intro

Friday night I crashed your party

Saturday I said I'm sorry

Sunday came and trashed me out again
Bm 
I was only having fun
Wasn't hurting anyone
And we all enjoyed the weekend for a change

I was stranded in the combat zone

I walked through Bedford Sty alone

Even rode my motorcycle in the rain
Bm 
And you told me not to drive
But I made it home alive
So you said that only proves that I'm insane

You may be right I may be crazy
F#m 
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
Turn out the lights don't try to save me
You may be wrong for all I know
But you may be right

Remember how I found you there

Alone in your electric chair

I told you dirty jokes until you smiled
Bm 
You were lonely for a man
I said take me as I am
'Cause you might enjoy some madness for a while

Now think of all the years you tried to

Find someone to satisfy you

I might be as crazy as you say
Bm 
If I'm crazy then it's true
That it's all because of you
And you wouldn't want me any other way

You may be right I may be crazy
F#m 
But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
Turn out the lights it's too late to change me
You may be wrong for all I know
But you may be right

Solo if appropriate on verse chords

You may be right I may be crazy
F#m 
Hey but it just may be a lunatic you're looking for
Turn out the lights, aww don't try to save me
You may be wrong for all I know
You may be right

You may be wrong but you may be right

Black Sabbath - Paranoid  

Originally in Em.  I play in Em if I'm feeling up to it (it's

mostly on G), otherwise I play in Am capo 5, so really in Dm.

Am Am 
 
Am Am 
 

Am Am 
Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind
Am Am 
People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time

Am Am 
Am Am 
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Am Am 
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify

Am 
 Can you help me?   
Am 
Occupy my brain, oh yeah

Am Am 
 

Am Am 
I need someone to show me the things in life that can't find
Am Am 
I can't see the things that make true happiness I must be blind

Am Am 
Am Am 
Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and will cry
Am Am 
Happiness I cannot feel, so love for me is so unreal

Am Am 
Am Am 
And so as you hear these words telling you now of my fate
Am Am 
I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late

Black Sabbath - War Pigs  

Yes, really, this works acoustic.  It's especially good with a

low harmony doing just E E E E E E E B.  Also FWIW, the E5's

are all really E major.

D5 E5 
 x 4

D5 E5 
Generals gathered in their masses
D5 E5 
Just like witches at black masses
D5 E5 
Evil minds that plot destruction
D5 E5 
Sorcerers of death's construction
D5 E5 
In the fields the bodies burning
D5 E5 
As the war machine keeps turning
D5 E5 
Death and hatred to mankind
D5 E5 
Poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!

D5 E5 F# E5 
D5 E5 F# E5 
E5 
Politicians hide themselves away
E5 
They only started the war
E5 
Why should they go out to fight? 
E5 
They leave that role to the poor

 I keep going right through this part, though the original has an instrumental here.

E5 
Time will tell on their power minds
E5 
Making war just for fun
E5 
Treating people just like pawns in chess
E5 
Wait 'till their judgment day comes, yeah!

D5 E5 F# E5 
D5 E5 F# E5 
D5 E5 
 x 2

D5 E5 
Now in darkness, world stops turning
D5 E5 
Ashes where the bodies burning
D5 E5 
No more war pigs have the power
D5 E5 
Hand of God has struck the hour
D5 E5 
Day of judgment, God is calling
D5 E5 
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
D5 E5 
Begging mercy for their sins
D5 E5 
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings, alright now!

Am 
It ain't no use in callin' out my name, babe

C7 
I'm a-thinkin' and a-wond'rin' all the way down the road
D7 
I once loved a woman, a child I'm told
Am 
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul
Don't think twice, it's all right

And I'm walking down that long lonesome road babe
Where I'm bound, I can't tell 
Am 
But goodbye's too good a word, babe

So I'll just say fare thee well

C7 
I ain't sayin' you treated me unkind
D7 
You could have done better but I don't mind

But don't think twice, it's alright

 Mama, take this badge from me

Knock, knock, knockin' on heaven's door
C7

Come gather 'round people
Am 
Wherever you roam
Em 
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
Em 
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone

Am 
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
D/C 
Then you better start swimmin'
G/B 
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'

Em 
Come writers and critics
Am 
Who prophesize with your pen
Em 
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
Em 
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin

Am 
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'
D/C 
For the loser now
G/B 
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'

Em 
Come senators, congressmen
Am 
Please heed the call
Em 
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
Em 
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled

Am 
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'
D/C 
It'll soon shake your windows
G/B 
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'

Em 
Come mothers and fathers
Am 
Throughout the land
Em 
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Em 
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command

Your old road is
Am 
Rapidly agin'
D/C 
Please get out of the new one
G/B 
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'

Em 
The line it is drawn
Am 
The curse it is cast
Em 
The slow one now
Will later be fast
Em 
As the present now
Will later be past

The order is
Am 
Rapidly fadin'

Cool ending from the Eddie Vedder cover...

D/C 
And the first one now
G/B 
Will later be last

D/C 
Please get out of the new one
G/B 
If you can't lend your hand

D/C 
It'll soon shake your windows
G/B 
And rattle your walls

Bob Seger - Turn The Page  

I like to play this about 1.5x faster than the original,

starting with the Em at the 7th fret with the open top string,

then going to more like a low E5 in the second part of the verse.

Changing positions keeps this fairly repetitive song from getting

stale.  Actually I try to us as many voicings with the open high E

string as I can.

Intro

Em Em Em 
   
Em 
On a long and lonesome highway east of Omaha
You can listen to the engine, moanin' out its one note song
Em 
You can think about the woman, or the girl you knew the night before
Em 
And your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
When you're riding sixteen hours and there's nothing much to do
Em 
You don't feel much like writing, you just wish the trip was through 

Em 
But here I am, on the road again
Em 
Here I am, up on stage
Here I go, playing the star again
Em 
There I go, turn the page

Em 
You walk into a restaurant, strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you, as you're shaking off the cold
Em 
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode
Em 
Sometimes you can hear 'em talk, other times you can't
And it's all the same cliches is that a woman or a man
Em 
And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand

Em 
But here I am, on the road again
Em 
Here I am, up on stage
Here I go, playing the star again
Em 
There I go, turn the page

Quiet, let chords ring...

Em 
Out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy you try to give away
Em 
And the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play
Em 
Later on that evening, as you lie awake in bed
The echoes of the amplifiers ringin' in your head
Em 
And you smoke the day's last cigarette, remembering what she said 

Em 
But here I am, on the road again
Em 
Here I am, up on stage
Here I go, playing the star again
Em 
There I go, turn the page

Now getting loud again...

Em 
But here I am, on the road again
Em 
Here I am, up on stage
Here I go, playing the star again
Em 
There I go, there I go

Bon Jovi - Bed of Roses  

Originally in F, I play it in C, capo 2, so really in D

Intro

       (x2)

Sitting here wasted and wounded at this old piano
Trying hard to capture the moment
This morning I don't know
Em 
'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head
And some blond gave me nightmares
Think she's still in my bed
As I dream about movies they
Won't make of me when I'm dead

With an ironclad fist
I wake up and French kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps its own beat
In my head while we're talking
Em 
About all of the things, that I long to believe
About love, the truth, what you mean to me
And the truth is
G/B 
Baby, you're all that I need 

Am 
I wanna lay
You down in a bed of roses
Am 
For tonight
I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I want to be just as close as
The holy ghost is
Am 
And lay you down
On a bed of roses

Well I'm so far away
Each step that I take's on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes
Given each night to see through this pay phone
Em 
Still I run out of time
Or it's hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I'll just close my eyes, whisper
G/B 
Baby, blind love is true 

Am 
I wanna lay
You down in a bed of roses
Am 
For tonight
I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I want to be just as close as
The holy ghost is
Am 
And lay you down
On a bed of roses

Bridge

Well this hotel bar's hangover
Whiskey's gone dry the barkeeper's wig's crooked

And she's giving me the eye

I might have said yes
G/B 
But I laughed so hard I think I died 

Solo on chorus chords, more or less

Now as you close your eyes
Know I'll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonight I won't be alone
But you know that don't mean I'm not lonely
Am 
I've got nothing to prove for it's you
G/B 
That I'd die to defend 

Am 
I wanna lay
You down in a bed of roses
Am 
For tonight
I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I want to be just as close as
The holy ghost is
Am 
And lay you down

Am 
I wanna lay
You down in a bed of roses
Am 
For tonight
I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh, I want to be just as close as
The holy ghost is
Am 
And lay you down on a bed of roses

Bon Jovi - Livin' on a Prayer  

Originally in Em, I like to play in Am, capo 2 (so in Bm)

On piano, I like to do it in Em but sing it down a fifth or so

Am 
  
Am 
Once upon a time, not so long ago 

Am 
Tommy used to work on the docks
Am 
Union's been on strike, he's down on his luck
Am 
It's tough,  so tough

Am 
Gina works the diner all day
Am 
Working for her man, she brings home her pay
Am 
For love,  for love

Am 
She says we've got to hold on to what we've got
Am 
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
Am 
We've got each other and that's a lot for love
We'll give it a shot

Am 
Whoa, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer
Am 
Take my hand we'll make it I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

Am 
Tommy's got his six string in hock

Now he's holding in what he used to make it talk

Am 
So tough,  so tough

Am 
Gina dreams of running away

When she cries in the night Tommy whispers

Am 
Baby it's O.K.,  some day

Am 
We've got to hold on to what we've got
Am 
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
Am 
We've got each other and that's a lot for love
We'll give it a shot

Am 
Whooa, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer
Am 
Take my hand we'll make it I swear
Whooa, livin' on a prayer

Am 
Livin' on a prayer

Let the Em ring for a while, solo in originally on chorus chords

Am Am 
Oooooooooh, we've got to hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got

Original goes up 1.5 steps, I usually skip that regardless of what

key I'm in, which works better if you let it hang here

Am 
Whoa, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer
Am 
Take my hand we'll make it I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

Am 
Whooa, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer
Am 
Take my hand we'll make it I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead or Alive  

Originally in D, I play in A.  In A, play all the Gadd9's as G.

Intro

4 measures high riff on A minor, chords are approximately:

Am Em7 Am 
 x 2

4 measures low riff on C → A minor, chords are approximately:

Bm A5 
 x 3 
Bm 

Verse

Gadd9 
It's all the same, only the names will change
Gadd9 
And ev'ry day, it seems we're wasting away
Gadd9 
Another place, where the faces are so cold
Gadd9 
I'd drive all night, just to get back home

Gadd9 
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Gadd9 
I'm wanteddead or alive
Gadd9 
Wanteddead or alive

4 measures high riff on A minor

Verse

Gadd9 
Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days
Gadd9 
And people I meet, always go their separate ways
Gadd9 
Sometimes you tell the day, by the bottle that you drink
Gadd9 
Sometimes when you're alone, all you do is think

Gadd9 
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Gadd9 
I'm wanteddead or alive
Gadd9 
Wanteddead or alive

Solo

When a soloist is available, play the chorus chorus,

and come out in a chorus with vocals.

For typical acoustic performance, let everything just

ring out in A minor for a while, then fade right into the verse.

Gadd9 
And I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
Gadd9 
play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back
Gadd9 
I been ev'ry where, still I'm standing tall

Hard stop on "rocked"

Gadd9 
I've seen a milion faces, and I've rocked them all

Gadd9 
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Gadd9 
I'm wanteddead or alive
Gadd9 
I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side
Gadd9 
I'm wanteddead or alive
Gadd9 
Dead or alive dead or alive
Gadd9 
I still try I still ride, dead or alive

Gadd9 
Dead or alive, dead or alive
Gadd9 
Dead or alive, dead or alive

Outro

End with high riff in A minor, then a cadence on A major.

Dm Eaug 
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet, yeah!

Brownsville Station - Smokin' in the Boys Room  

Some of the banter is from the Motley Crue version

All chords in the intro and verse are slid up to from a half-step below

Intro

How you doin' out there?
You ever seem to have one of those days
When everyone seemed to be on your case
From your teacher all the way down
To your best girlfriend?

Well you know that used to happen just about all the time
But I found a way to get out of it
Let me tell you 'bout it

Sittin' in the classroom thinkin' it's a drag
Bb 
Llistening to the teacher rap just ain't my bag
When two bells ring you know that's my cue
Bb 
Gonna meet the boys on floor number 2

Smokin' in the boys room, smokin' in the boys room
Now teacher don't you fill me up with your rules

Down to the 3 of the chord (C#) in "every", then up to D on "smoke"

Everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school

Checkin' out the halls makin' sure the coast is clear
Bb 
Lookin' in the stalls, no there ain't nobody here
My buddies Sixx, Mick, and Tom
Bb 
To get caught would surely be the death of us all

Smokin' in the boys room, smokin' in the boys room
Now teacher don't you fill me up with your rules
Everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school

Solo

Put me to work in the school book store
Bb 
Check-out counter and I got bored
Teacher was lookin' for me all around
Bb 
Two hours later you know where I was found

Smokin' in the boys room, yes indeed, I was smokin' in the boys room
Now teacher don't you fill me up with your rules
Everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school

One more...

Smokin' in the boys room, smokin' in the boys room
Now teacher I ain't foolin' around with your rules

Hard stop on "smoke"

Everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school

Walk on D F# G Ab A, finish on...

Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run  

Originally in E, I play in D

Intro

 x2

Vox in on the 4 on "day"

In the day we sweat it out in the streets
Of a runaway American dream
At night we ride through mansions of glory
In suicide machines

G/F# 
Sprung from cages out on highway 9
Em 
Chrome wheeled, fuel injected
G/F# D9 
And steppin' out over the line, oh

G/F# 
Baby this town rips the bones from your back
Em G/F# 
It's a death trap, it's a suicide rap
Bm 
We gotta get out while we're young
'Cause tramps like us
Baby we were born to run

 x2

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend 
I wanna guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs 'round these velvet rims
And strap your hands 'cross my engines

G/F# 
Together we could break this trap
Em 
We'll run till we drop
G/F# D9 
Baby we'll never go back, oh
G/F# 
Will you walk with me out on the wire?
Em G/F# 
'Cause baby I'm just a scared and lonely rider
Bm 
But I gotta know how it feels

I want to know if love is wild
Babe I want to know if love is real

 x2

Solo if appropriate 

 x2

Bm Bm Am7 

All chords sus4→major

Vox on the 5 of the chord on "beyond"

Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones
Scream down the boulevard
The girls comb their hair in rearview mirrors
A# 
And the boys try to look so hard

The amusement park rises bold and stark
Kids are huddled on the beach in a mist
I wanna die with you Wendy on the streets tonight
A# 
In an  everlasting kiss

I skip the breakdown, and do 4 beats each on...

A#sus4 A# 
Asus4 

Then riff for a while on...

Vox back in on the 3

The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a
Last chance power drive
Everybody's out on the run tonight but there's
No place left to hide

G/F# 
Together Wendy we'll live with the sadness
Em G/F# D9 
I'll love you with all the madness in my soul, oh
G/F# 
Someday girl I don't know when we're gonna 
Em 
Get to that place
G/F# 
Where we really want to go
Bm 
And we'll walk in the sun
Bm 
But 'til then tramps like us baby we were born to run
Bm 
Ah honey tramps like us baby we were born to run
Come on Wendy tramps like us baby we were born to run

Until end, with "whoa"

Bruce Springsteen - Glory Days  

Straight muted 8ths through most of the verse

Intro

 x 4

I had a friend was a big baseball player
Back in high school
He could throw that speedball by you
Make you look like a fool boy

Saw him the other night at this roadside bar
I was walking in and he was walking out
We went back inside sat down, had a few drinks
But all he kept talking about was

Glory days they'll  pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

 x 2

There's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she could turn all the boys' heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by and have a few drinks
After she put her kids to bed

Her and her husband Bobby well they split up
I guess it's two years gone by now
We just sit around talking about the old times
She says when she feels like crying she starts laughing thinking about

Glory days they'll  pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Think I'm going down to the well tonight
And I'm going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it
But I probably will

Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory-a
But time slips away and leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of

Glory days they'll  pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Yea they'll  pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Alright
Oooh yea
Alright
Come on now

Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road  

Most of the IV's can be IV2, most of the V's can be Vsus4

Originally in F; I play in C capo 2

Intro

Em 
screen door slams, Mary's dress waves
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely
Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again, I just can't face myself alone again

Don't run back inside, darlin, you know just what I'm here for

So you're scared and you're thinking that

Em 
Maybe we ain't that young any more
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night
You ain't a beauty but hey you're all right
Oh and that's alright with me

Am 
You can hide beneath your covers and study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain
Em 
Waste your summer praying in vain for a
Savior to rise from these streets
Am 
Well now I'm no hero that's understood
All the redemption I can offer girl is beneath this dirty hood
Em 
With a chance to make it good somehow hey
What else can we do now except

Roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair

Well the night's busting open these

Em 
Two lanes can take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real
To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks

Am 
Oh come take my hand 
We're ridin' out tonight to case the promised land
Em 
Oh oh thunder Road, oh thunder road, oh thunder road
F/A 
Lyin' out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late, we can make it if we run
Em 
Oh oh thunder road, sit tight, take hold, thunder road

Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk
And my car's out back if you're
Am 
Ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
Em Am 
Door's open but the ride ain't free
F/E Dm 
Well I know you're hungry for words that I ain't spoken
Well tonight we'll be free, all the promises will be broken

There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away

Vox do *not* go down on "skeleton", even though you want to

Em 
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of
Burned-out Chevrolets

Vox back up to the 1 of the key for this whole line, including "street"

They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet

Stay on the 1 of the key on "lonely"

Em 
And in the lonely cool before dawn

*Still* on the 1 of the key on "engines"

You hear their engines roaring on

Vox down to the 3 of the chord on "get to the porch"

But when you get to the porch, they're gone
Dm 
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's a town full of losers, and I'm pulling out of here to win

Bryan Adams - Summer of '69  

Originally in D; I play it in A, capo 2, so really in B

Intro

I got my first real six-string
Bought it at the five-and-dime
Played it 'til my fingers bled 
It was the summer of '69

Me and some guys from school
Had a band and we tried real hard
Jimmy quit and Jody got married
I shoulda known we'd never get far

F#m 
Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
F#m 
Oh and if I had my choice
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
F#m 
Those were the best days of my life

Ain't no use in complainin'
When you got a job to do
Spent my evenings down at the drive-in
And that's where I met you

F#m 
Standin' on your mama's porch
You told me that you'd wait forever
F#m 
Oh, and when you held my hand
I knew that it was now or never
F#m 
Those were the best days of my life
Back in the summer of '69

Man we were killing time
We were young and restless we needed to unwind
I guess nothin' can last forever- forever, no

And now the times are changing
Look at everything that's come and gone
Sometimes when I play that old six-string
I think about you 'n' wonder what went wrong

F#m 
Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
F#m 
Oh and if I had my choice
Yeah I'd always wanna be there
F#m 
Those were the best days of my life

Starts with a little riff in A blues (I usually make it A major) into an E7

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
E7 
'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, you give me all your loving and your turtle doving
All your hugs and kisses and your money too

'Cause that'll be the day when I die

Well, when Cupid shot his dart he shot it at your heart
So if we ever part and I leave you
You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly
E7 
That some day, well I'll be blue

Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie

Intro

   
When she walks she swings her arms
Instead of her hips
When she talks she moves her mouth
Instead of her lips
And I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

Let me go and I will want you more
B7 
Let me go she said, Let me goooo

Instead of the moon
When she sees she sees the stars
Inside of her room
And I've waited for her for so long
I've waited for her for so long
I've wondered if I could hang on
I've wondered if I could hang on

Caspar Babypants - 9.99  

Intro

Asus4 
D7 G/B Gm/Bb 
I am a little bear
So cute with fuzzy hair
Once upon a time I was so nice
D7 
Now I'm loved and hugged no more
G/B Gm/Bb 
And I'm stuck here at this store
And nine ninety nine is my new price 

used to hang around
All glossy black and brown
In a high rise apartment oh so fancy
D7 
But I lost my button eye
G/B Gm/Bb 
And began to slowly die
And now it's up to you to bring me mercy 

This little soul of mine
Is nine ninety nine
And if you've got some thread then you can fix me
D7 
I'm torn old and pale
G/B Gm/Bb 
And I am for sale
What I need is for someone to pick me 

I was put out with the trash
With the fireplace ash
Torn dirty and clean out of luck
D7 
But the garbage men were kind
G/B Gm/Bb 
And they sewed up my behind
And put me on the grill of their truck 

I lived there for a year
And shed so many tears
Till one day I fell underneath the tires
D7 
Now the only single way
G/B Gm/Bb 
I'll go home with you today
Is if you're desperate for a doll that's sick and tired 

This little soul of mine
Is nine ninety nine
And if you've got some thread then you can fix me
D7 
I'm torn old and pale
G/B Gm/Bb 
And I am for sale
What I need is for someone to pick me 

Let chords ring

But that's just what you did
You saved me little kid
You saw that I had stories left to tell
D7 
Now your mom is getting used to a
G/B Gm/Bb 
Although she is confused by a
Slightly stinky old bear smell

This little soul of mine
Is nine ninety nine
And if you've got some thread then you can fix me
D7 
I'm torn old and pale
G/B Gm/Bb 
And I am for sale
What I need is for someone
What I need is for someone
What I need is for someone to pick me

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary  

Originally in D, I play A capo 3

I play about halfway between the CCR and Turner tempos

Left a good job in the city

Workin' for the man ev'ry night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worryin' 'bout the way things might have been

Big wheel keep on turnin'
F#m 
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis

Pumped a lot of 'tane down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of a city
'Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen

Big wheel keep on turnin'
F#m 
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', (rollin'), rollin' on the river

Solo on one verse and chorus, with the last line sung

Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
If you come down to the river

Bet you gonna find some people who live
You don't have to worry 'cause you have no money
People on the river are happy to give

Big wheel keep on turnin'
F#m 
Proud Mary keep on burnin'
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river
Rollin', (whoa), rollin', rollin' on the river
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river

Bm7 Em Em7 
Flashback to warm nights almost left  behind

Em Em7 
If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time

If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting

After my picture fades and darkness has turned to gray
Watching through windows you're wondering if I'm OK

Secrets stolen from deep inside

The drum beats out of time

guess I'm pleased to meet you or maybe I've
Am7 Am7 
Seen you somewhere before 
And all that friendly smalltalk that everyone
Am7 Am7 
Knows just leads to the door 

So let's both look at the carpet, or "such a nice view"
Am7 Am7 
Or "when will it rain?"
And when the coffee is gone you'll get back in your car
Am7 Am7 
I'll get back on the train

Am7 
'Cause I don't want to change your life
Am7

But nine or ten exits later your radio's on
Am7 Am7 
And your windows are down 
And you're singing along with the Beatles and smiling
Am7 Am7 
Remembering a night on the town 

And as I fall asleep at the station 
Am7 Am7 
On a train that's pulling away 
I'm humming along with the engines
Am7 Am7 
A beautiful end to a beautiful day

B/A 
Or how we should get together some time
C/A B/A 
And see what we can to make amends?

I'd love to have you over but now you've been replaced

Cadd5 D7 
And I'll toss another petal into time

Dan Morris - Flowers in the Rain  

Note that the capo moves around in this song... it was

done with the magic of multitracking for recording

purposes, but I find I can do it live if I fade into a

real quiet chord right before I move the capo, which

happens to fit with the song (sort of)...

Intro, capo 3

Cadd5 D11add5 Cadd5 D11add5 Cadd5 D7

Flowers at your window
Cadd5 D11add5 
But you pretend that you can't hear me

And my song turns to a scream

During this transition, with the yeah,

the capo 3 guitar fades out and capo 1 fades in

Capo 3:  C C7  F
Capo 1:  D D7  G

 Capo 1

Each time the clock goes 'round
Cm 
Your heart falls down

NC 
And you ask yourself just why it should be you
B7 
Why you should be the lucky one
Em 
You ask yourself what you can give her
When the day is over
Just to show her that it should be you
Bm Bm/A 
And when the sunlight falls upon her hair
Gm 
You say it isn't fair, and you just stare

And now it's true, now you're the one that she wakes up with
Gm 
But it's just like you
Cm 
To never let it feel just right

So you look away
Bm Bm/A 
And you worry on tomorrow
Gm 
While you let today go by
Cm 
And your heart just dies

NC 
And you ask yourself just why it should be you
B7 
Why you should be the lucky one

You ask yourself what you can give her
When the day is over
Just to show her that it should be you
Bm Bm/A 
And when another sunlight falls upon her hair
Gm 
Will you be there? Will she even care?

Outro:

B7 
Will you be there when her summer breezes blow
C/E Cm 
   Her leaves of autumn, her hint of winter snow
B7 
And while you're waiting and a month becomes a year
C/E Cm 
Will she care for your lost seasons, will she shed a single tear?

B7 
Will you be there
C/E Cm 
Will you be waiting dreaming wandering alone?
B7 
Will you be there will you be will you will you there?
C/E Cm 
 Or will she see you waiting and wonder wonder where?

Def Leppard - Two Steps Behind  

Intro

 x2

Walk away  if you want to
It's okay  if you need to
You can run, but you can never hide 
From the shadow that's creepin up beside you

F#m 
There's a magic runnin' through your soul
But you can't have it all
(Whatever you do) I'll be two steps behind you
(Where ever you go) and I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute of your precious time
To turn around, I'll be two steps behind

 x2

Take the time  to think about it 
Just walk the line, you know you just can't fight it 
Take a look around, you'll see what you can find
Like the fire that's burnin' up inside me

F#m 
There's a magic runnin' through your soul
But you can't have it all
(Whatever you do) I'll be two steps behind you
(Where ever you go) and I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute of your precious time
To turn around, I'll be two steps behind

Solo on verse

F#m 
There's a magic runnin' through your soul
But you can't have it all
(Whatever you do) I'll be two steps behind you
(Where ever you go) and I'll be there to remind you
That it only takes a minute of your precious time
To turn around, I'll be two steps behind

Disney - Let it Go  

Originally in Ab, written here in G.

I play capo 3 (so in Bb), and sing the verse *above*

chorus.

Intro

Em Amsus4 Am 
Em Asus4 

vox on the 5 (B)

Em Cadd9 
The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Am

Em Amsus4 Am

Em 
Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I've tried

vox down to the 5 of the chord (A if the chord is D)

Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well now they know

Let it go, let it go
Em 
Can't hold it back any more
Let it go, let it go
Em 
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care
Em 
What they're going to say
Bm Bb 
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway

Em 
It's funny how some distance
Am 
Makes everything seem small

Start going down here, to the 5 of the chord on "fears",

down to the 5 of the chord on "get"

Em 
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all

It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I'm free

Let it go, let it go
Em 
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
Em 
You'll never see me cry

Here I stand
Em 
And here I stay
Bm Bb 
Let the storm rage on

Bridge

My power flurries through the air into the ground

My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around

And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast

I'm never going back
Am 
The past is in the past 

Let it go, let it go
Em 
When I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
Em 
That perfect girl is gone

Em Cm 
Here I stand in the light of day 
Bm Bb 
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway

The ray he can play, the ling's on the strings
The trout rockin' out, the blackfish she sings
The smelt and the sprat, they know where it's at
An' oh that blowfish blow

Instrumental chorus, skip if no soloist

Under the sea,  under the sea 
When the sardine begin the beguine
It's music to me
What do they got? A lot of sand
F#m 
We got a hot crustacean band
Each little clam here know how to jam here
Under the sea

Each little slug here cuttin' a rug here
Under the sea

Each little snail here know how to wail here
F#m 
That's why it's hotter under the water
Ya we in luck here down in the muck here
Under the sea

Darrell Scott does this in G, Dixie Chicks in D

Intro

Daddy sits on the front porch swingin'
Lookin' out on a vacant field
It used to be filled with burly tobacco
Now he knows it never will
My brother found work in Indiana
My sister's a nurse at the old folks home
Momma's still cookin' too much for supper
And me, I've been a long time gone

Been a long time gone
No I ain't hoed a row since I don't know when
Long time gone and it ain't comin' back again

Delia plays that old church piano
Sittin' out on her daddy's farm
She always thought that we'd be together
Lord, I never meant to do her harm
Said she could heard me singin' in the choir
Me I heard another song
I caught wind and hit the road runnin' and
Lord I've been a long time gone

Been a long time gone
Lord I ain't had a prayer since I don't know when
Long time gone and it ain't comin' back again

Bridge

Now me, I went to Nashville, tryin' to be the big deal
Playin' down on Broadway, gettin’ there the hard way
Livin' from a tip jar, sleepin' in my car
Hockin’ my guitar, yeah I'm gonna be a star

Now me and Delia singin' every Sunday
Watchin' the children and the garden grow
We listen to the radio to hear what's cookin'
But the music ain’t got no soul
Now they sound tired but they don't sound Haggard
They got money but they don't have Cash
They got Junior but they don’t have Hank

I think, I think, I think the rest is a

Long time gone
No I ain't hit the roof since I don't know when
Long time gone and it ain't comin' back
I said a long time gone
Nno I ain’t honked a horn since I don’t know when
Long time gone and it ain’t comin’ back again

I said a long time, long time, long time gone
Oh it’s been a long time long time, long time, long time gone
Oh it's been a long time gone

Dixie Chicks - Travelin' Soldier  

Bruce Robison does this in B

The Dixie Chicks do this in A

I prefer it in D, as G capo 7

Intro

Two days past 18
He was waiting for a bus in his army greens
Sat down at a booth, at a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair

He's a little shy, so she give him a smile
And he said "Would you mind sitting down for a while
And talking to me, I'm feeling a little low?"
She said "I'm off in an hour, and I know where we can go."

So they went down and they sat on the pier 
He said "I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care, I've 
Got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you?"

Em 
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another 
Guy, "Too young, for him" they told her
Waiting for the love of a travelin' soldier
Em 
Our love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back 
Again, never more to be alone
When the letter says "a soldier's coming home"

So the letters came from an army camp
In California, then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart, he might be in love
And all the things he was so scared of

He said "When it's getting kinda rough over here
think of that day sitting down at the pier
And I close my eyes, and see your pretty smile
Don't worry, but I won't be able to write for a while

Em 
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another 
Guy, "Too young, for him" they told her
Waiting for the love of a travelin' soldier
Em 
Our love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back 
Again, never more to be alone
When the letter says "a soldier's coming home"

Solo on verse chords if appropriate

One Friday night at a football game
The lord's prayer said, and the anthem sang
And a man said "folks, would you bow your head
For a list of local, Vietnam dead

Crying all alone, under the stand
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read, and nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl, with a bow in her hair

Em 
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another 
Guy, "Too young, for him" they told her
Waiting for the love of a travelin' soldier
Em 
Our love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back 
Again, never more to be alone
When the letter says "a soldier's coming home"

Em 
I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another 
Guy, "Too young, for him" they told her
Waiting for the love of a travelin' soldier
Em 
Our love will never end
Waiting for the soldier to come back 
Again, never more to be alone
When the letter says "a soldier's coming home"

Don Henley - The Boys of Summer  

Originally in Ebm, I play in Am or Am capo 1

Highest note is the 3 ("I can see you")

Intro

Am 

Vox in on the 7, up to the 1 on "road"

Am 
Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air, the summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets, the sun goes down alone
I'm driving by your house, though I know you're not home

But I can see you,  your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Am 
Am 
I never will forget those nights, I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy, remember how I made you scream
Now I don't understand what happened to our love
But babe I'm gonna get you back 

I'm gonna show you what I'm made of

I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun
I see you walking real slow and you're smiling at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Interlude, I skip this

Dm 
Am 
Am 
Out on the road today I saw a Black Flag Sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said

Don't look back, you could never look back

I thought I knew what love was, what did I know?
Those days are gone forever I should just let them go, but

I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun
You got the top pulled down and your radio on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you, your brown skin shining in the sun
You got your hair slicked back, and those wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Fade on chorus chords

Don McLean - American Pie  

Em7 
long, long time ago
Am 
I can still remember how that
Em 
Music used to make me smile
Em7 
And I know if I had my chance
Am 
That I could make those people dance and
Em 
Maybe they'd be happy for a while

Em Am 
But February made me shiver
Em Am 
Wwith every paper I'd deliver
Am 
Bad news on the doorstep
couldn't take one more step
Em 
can't remember if I cried
Am7 
When I read about his widowed bride
Em 
Something touched me deep inside
D7 
The day the music died

So bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Em A7 
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
Em D7 
This'll be the day that I die

Am 
Did you write the book of love?
Am 
And do you have faith in god above
Em 
If the bible tells you so?
Em 
Do you believe in rock and roll
Am7 
Can music save your mortal soul
Em A7 
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Em 
Well I know that you're in love with him 
Em 
'Cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
A7 
You both kicked off your shoes
D7 
Man I dig those rhythm and blues
Em 
I was a lonely teenage broncin' buck 
Am 
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
Em 
But I knew I was out of luck
D7 
The day the music died, I started singin'

So bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Em A7 
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
Em D7 
This'll be the day that I die

Am 
Now for ten years we've been on our own
Am Em 
And moss grows fat on a rolling stone
But that's not how it used to be
Em 
When the jester sang for the king and queen
Am7 
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
Em A7 
In a voice that came from you and me

Em 
And while the king was looking down
Em 
The jester stole his thorny crown
A7 
The courtroom was adjourned
D7 
No verdict was returned
Em 
And while Lenin read a book on Marx
Am 
The quartet practiced in the park
Em 
And we sang dirges in the dark
D7 
The day the music died
We were singin'

So bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Em A7 
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
Em D7 
This'll be the day that I die

Am 
Helter skelter in a summer swelter
Am 
The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
Em 
Eight miles high and fallin' fast
Em 
It landed foul on the grass
Am7 
The players tried for a forward pass
Em A7 
With the jester on the sidelines in a cast

Em 
Now the halftime air was sweet perfume
Em 
While sergeants played a marching tune
A7 
We all got up to dance
D7 
But we never got the chance
Em 
'Cause the players tried to take the field
Am 
The marching band refused to yield
Em 
Do you recall what was the feel
D7 
The day the music died
We started singin'

So bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Em A7 
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
Em D7 
This'll be the day that I die

Am 
And there we were all in one place
Am 
A generation lost in space
Em 
 With no time left to start again
Em 
So come on Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Am7 
Jack Flash sat on a candle
Em A7 
Stick, 'cause fire is the devil's only friend

Em 
And as I watched him on the stage
Em 
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
A7 
No angel born in Hell
D7 
Could bread that Satan's spell
Em 
And as the flames climbed high into the night
Am 
To light the sacrificial rite
Em 
I saw Satan laughing with delight
D7 
The day the music died
He was singin'

Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry
And good old boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye
Em A7 
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
Em D7 
This'll be the day that I die

Em 
met a girl who sang the blues
Am 
And I asked her for some happy news
Em 
But she just smiled and turned away
Em 
went down to the sacred store
Am 
Where I'd heard the music years before
Em 
But the man there said the music
Wouldn't play

Em Am 
But in the streets the children screamed
Em Am 
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
Am 
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
Em 
And the three men I admire most
Am7 D7 
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
Em 
They caught the last train for the coast 
Am7 D7 
The day the music died
D7 
And they were singin'

Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levy but the levy was dry

Em Em 
I remember when rock was young
Bm 
Me and Susie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin' stones
Had a old gold Chevy and a place of my own

But the biggest kick I ever got 
Bm 
Was doin' a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were rockin' 'round the clock
We were hoppin' and boppin' to the Crocodile Rock, well

Em 
Crocodile Rockin' is something shockin' when your
A7 
Feet just can't keep still

I never knew me a better time and I guess I never will
Oh, lordy mamma those Friday nights when

The Crocodile Rockin' was out of'a sight

La, la la la la
Em 
La, la la la la
La, la la la la

But the years went by and rock just died
Bm 
Susie went and left me for some foreign guy
Long nights cryin' by the record machine 
Dreamin' of my Chevy and my old blue jeans 

But they'll never kill the thrills we've got 
Bm 
Burnin' up to the Crocodile Rock
Learning fast as the weeks went past
We really thought the Crocodile Rock would last, well

Em 
Crocodile Rockin' is something shockin' when your

Feet just can't keep still

Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"

couple of the sounds that I really like
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
I'm a juvenile product of the working class
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

D5 
Ooooh

 Don't give us none of your aggravation
Bb 
We had it with your discipline
'Cause Saturday night's alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Bb 
Gonna set this dance alight
'Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright

Eb Dm7 
Alright alright, oooh oooh oooh

Instrumental on chorus chords with suspensions

'Cause Saturday night's the night I like
Saturday night's alright

Alright alright, oooh oooh oooh

Elton John - Your Song  

Originally in Eb, I play it in E, with lots of open strings.

C#m/B as 7x66540

C#m/A# as 6x66540

A/E B/E A/E 
   
Amaj7 B/D# G#m 
It's a little bit funny,  this feeling inside
C#m C#m7/B C#m/A# 
I'm not one of those  who can easily hide
G# C#m 
I don't have much money, but  boy if I did
F#m7 
I'd buy a big house where  we both could live

Amaj7 G#m 
 If I was a sculptor,  but then again no
C#m C#m7/B C#m/A# 
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
G# C#m 
I know it's not much but it's thebest I can do
F#m7 
My gift is my song, and this one's for you

C#m F#m7 
And you can tell everybody this is your song
C#m F#m7 
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
C#m C#m7/B 
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
C#m/A# 
That I put down in the words
F#m7 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

A/E B/E A/E 
   
Amaj7 B/D# G#m 
I sat on the roof  and kicked off the moss
C#m C#m7/B C#m/A# 
Well a few of the verses, well, they've got me quite crossed
G# C#m 
But the sun's been quite kind,  while I wrote this song
F#m7 
It's for people like you that they keep it turned on

Amaj7 G#m 
 So excuse me forgetting  but these things I do
C#m C#m7/B C#m/A# 
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
G# C#m 
Anyway,  the thing is, what I really mean 
F#m7 
 Yours are the sweetest eyes  I've ever seen 

C#m F#m7 
And you can tell everybody this is your song
C#m F#m7 
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
C#m C#m7/B 
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
C#m/A# 
That I put down in the words
F#m7 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
C#m C#m7/B 
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
C#m/A# 
That I put down in the words
F#m7 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Elvis Presley - Fever  

Often played in Am, I play in Em, capo 3, so really in Gm

Note the vocals ride mostly on IV in this key, i.e. the A in Em

Crazy chromatic key changes are also characteristic of this song,

but I usually skip that when doing it acoustic.  This is fun to do

with just bass and vox, in which I case I usually change keys after

every chorus.

Em 
 Never know how much I love you
B7 Em 
Never know how much I care
Em 
When you put your arms around me
B7 Em 
I get a fever that's so hard to bear

Em 
You give me fever,   when you kiss me
Em 
Fever when you hold me tight
Em 
Fever, in the morning
B7 Em 
Fever all through the night

Em 
 Sun lights up the daytime
B7 Em 
Moon lights up the night
Em 
I light up when you call my name
B7 Em 
And you know I'm gonna treat you right

Em 
You give me fever,   when you kiss me
Em 
Fever when you hold me tight
Em 
Fever, in the morning
B7 Em 
Fever all through the night

Em 
Ev'rybody's got the fever
B7 Em 
That is something you all know
Em 
Fever isn't such a new thing
B7 Em 
Fever started long ago

Em 
Romeo loved Juliet
B7 Em 
Juliet she felt the same
Em 
When he put his arms around her, he said
B7 Em 
Julie, baby, you're my flame

Em 
Thou givest fever,   when we kisseth
Em 
Fever when thy flaming youth
Em 
Fever  I'm afire
B7 Em 
Fever, yea I burn forsooth

Em 
Captain Smith and Pocahantas
B7 Em 
Had a very mad affair
Em 
When her Daddy tried to kill him, she said
B7 Em 
"Daddy-o don't you dare."

Em 
He gives me fever,  with his kisses
Em 
Fever when he holds me tight
Em 
Fever, I'm his missus
B7 Em 
Oh daddy won't you treat him right

Em 
Now you've listened to my story
B7 Em 
Here's a point that I have made
Em 
Chicks were born to give you fever
B7 Em 
Be it Fahrenheit or Centigrade

Em 
They give you fever,  when you kiss them
Em 
Fever if you live and learn
Em 
Fever, 'til you sizzle
B7 Em 
What a lovely way to burn
B7 Em 
What a lovely way to burn
B7 Em 
What a lovely way to burn

Elvis Presley - Suspicious Minds  

Intro

We're caught in a trap,  I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby
Why can't you see what you're doing to me?

When you don't believe a word I say?

Bm 
We can't go on together  with suspicious minds 
Em Bm D7

Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

You can see the tears are real I'm crying

 When honey you know I've never
 Lied to you, mmm 
D7 
 Yeah yeah

We're caught in a trap,  I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby
Why can't you see what you're doing to me?
When you don't believe a word I say?

Don't you know I'm

Caught in a trap,  I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm

Caught in a trap,  I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Repeat and fade, then unfade, which I think is silly.

Eve 6 - Inside Out  

Asus2 
I would swallow my pride, I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
F# 
Swallow my doubt turn it inside out                               

Find nothing but faith in nothing

Asus2 
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
F# 
Watch it spin 'round into a beautiful oblivion
Asus2 F# 
Rendezvous, then I'm through with you            

                                            

F# 
I burn, burn like a wicker cabinet
Chalk white and oh so frail
F# 
I see our time has gotten stale
F# 
The tick tock of the clock is painful
All sane and logical
F# 
I want to tear it off the wall                  

F# 
I hear words in clips and phrases
I think sick like ginger ale
F# 
My stomach turns and I exhale

            

Asus2 
I would swallow my pride, I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
F# 
Swallow my doubt turn it inside out                               

Find nothing but faith in nothing

Rendezvous, then I'm through with you            

   
                                                 

F# 
SoCal is where my mind states
But it's not my state of mind
F# 
I'm not as ugly, sad as you
F# 
Or am I origami? Fold it up and just pretend
F# 
Demented as the motives in your head

                                                 

Asus2 
I would swallow my pride, I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside

Swallow my doubt turn it inside out                               

Find nothing but faith in nothing

Asus2 
Want to put my tender heart in a blender

Asus2 F# 
Rendezvous, then I'm through with you            

             

                                     
I alone am the one you
Don't know you need take heed, feed your ego
Make me blind when your eyes close
Sink when you get close, tie me to the bedpost

I alone am the one you 
Don't know you need, you don't know you need me
Make me blind when your eyes close
Tie me to the bedpost

                                                 

Outro: Chorus lyrics but new chords

I would swallow my pride I would choke on the rinds
But the lack thereof would leave me empty inside
Swallow my doubt, turn it inside out
Find nothing but faith in nothing
Want to put my tender heart in a blender
Watch it spin 'round to a beautiful oblivion
Rendezvous, then I'm through, now I'm through with 
You   
F# 
Through with you   
Asus2 F# 
Rendezvous then I'm through with you

Evita - Don't Cry For Me Argentina  

This follows the Me First and the Gimme Gimmes arrangement.

I pretty much play this as straight 8ths, punk-style, maybe opening up a little in the chorus

Cadd9 G/B Cadd9 
    
It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done

Em 
You won't believe me
A7 
All you will see is a girl you once knew
A7 
Although she is dressed to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you

Cadd9 G/B Cadd9 
    
I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun

Em 
So I chose freedom
A7 
Running around, trying everything new
A7 
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to

Cadd9 G/B Cadd9 
   
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
Cadd9 
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Cadd9 
Don't keep your distance (let ring)

And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired

Em 
They are illusions
A7 
They are not the solutions they promised to be
A7 
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me

Cadd9 G/B Cadd9 
   
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
Cadd9 
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Cadd9 
Don't keep your distance (let ring)

Am 
Have I said too much? 
D/F# Em 
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
Am 
But all you gotta do is look at me to know
D/F# 
That every word is true

Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
Cadd9 
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Cadd9 
Don't keep your distance (let ring)

Extreme - Hole Hearted  

Originally in A tuned down, I play as such if I can

Intro

 x2
A7 
Cadd9 G/B 
Life's ambition occupies my time
Priorities confuse the mind
Happiness one step behind
This inner peace I've yet to find

A/D G/D A/D 
Rivers flow into the sea
A7 D11/A Cadd9 
Yet even the sea is not so full of me
A/D G/D A/D 
If I'm not blind why can't see
A7 D11/A 
That a circle can't fit
Cadd9 
Where a square should be

There's a hole in my heart
Cadd9 
That can only be filled by you  
And this hole in my heart
Cadd9 
Can't be filled with the things I do 

Bb6 A7sus4 
Hole hearted  
Bb6 A7sus4 
Hole hearted  

A7 
Cadd9 G/B 
This heart of stone is where hide
These feet of clay kept warm inside
Day by day less satisfied
Not fade away before die

A/D G/D A/D 
Rivers flow into the sea
A7 D11/A Cadd9 
Yet even the sea is not so full of me
A/D G/D A/D 
If I'm not blind why can't see
A7 D11/A 
That a circle can't fit
Cadd9 
Where a square should be

There's a hole in my heart
Cadd9 
That can only be filled by you  
And this hole in my heart

Note short phrase after this line

Cadd9 A/D G/D 
Can't be filled with the things I do   
There's a hole in my heart
Cadd9 
That can only be filled by you  
Should have known from the start
Cadd9 
I'd fall short with the things I do

Fastball - Out of My Head  

Intro

C#m E7 
F# 
   

G#m 
Sometimes I feel like I am drunk behind the wheel
The wheel of possibility
F# 
However it may roll
G#m 
Give it a spin, see if it can somehow factor in
You know there's always more than one way
F# 
To say exactly what you mean to say

C#m 
Was I out of my head, was I out of my mind?
E7 
How could I have ever been so blind?
I was waiting for an indication
F# 
It was hard to find
C#m 
Don't matter what I say, no matter what I do
E7 
I never mean to do bad things to you
So quiet but I finally woke up
F# A7 
If you're sad then it's time you spoke up too 

Guitar solo on chorus chords... if there's _anyone_ around to play it, it would push the song over that critical 60-second mark.

C#m 
Was I out of my head, was I out of my mind?
E7 
How could I have ever been so blind?
I was waiting for an invitation

Garth Brooks - Papa Loved Mama  

Intro

E5 
E5 
 Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
A7 
You know it  drove mama crazy being a trucker's wife
B7 
The  part she couldn't handle was the being alone
B7 
I guess she  needed more to hold than just a  telephone

E5 
 Papa called Mama each and every night
A7 
Just to  ask her how she was and if us kids were alright
B7 
 Mama would wait for that call to come in
B7 E7 
And when  Daddy'd hang up she was  gone a gain 

A7 
 Mama was a looker lord how she shined
E7 
 Papa was a good'n but the jealous kind
A7 
 Papa loved Mama, Mama loved men
E7 B7 E5 
 Mama's in the graveyard  Papa's in the  pen 

E5 
 Well it was bound to happen and one night it did
A7 
 Papa came home and it was just us kids
B7 
He had a  dozen roses and a bottle of wine
B7 
If he was  lookin' to surprise us he was  doin' fine

E5 
 I heard him cry for Mama up and down the hall
A7 
Then I  heard a bottle break against the bedroom wall
B7 
That  old diesel engine made an eerie sound
B7 E7 
When Papa  fired it up and headed  into  town

A7 
Well the  picture in the paper showed the scene real well
E7 
 Papa's rig was buried in the local motel
A7 
The  desk clerk said he saw it all real clear

After this line go right into the little riff

E7 B7 E5 
He never  hit the brakes and he was  shifting  gears

E5 F5 F#5 G5 G#5 G#5 
A7 
 Mama was a looker lord how she shined
E7 
 Papa was a good'n but the jealous kind
A7 
 Papa loved Mama, Mama loved men
E7 B7 E5 
 Mama's in the graveyard  Papa's in the  pen 

Solo, and fade on:

Garth Brooks - Rodeo  

If I had to call all those E5's Em or E, I'd call them Em.

E5 
 x 2

E5 
His eyes are cold and restless
E5 
His wounds have almost healed
E5 
And she'd give half of Texas
E5 
Just to change the way he feels

E5 
She knows his love's in Tulsa
And she knows he's gonna go
E5 
Well it ain't no woman flesh and blood
B7 
It's that damned old rodeo

Well it's bulls and blood, it's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles, the gold in the buckle
B7 
He'll win the next go 'round 

It's boots and chaps, it's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo, it's the ropes and the reins
B7 E5 
And the joy and the pain and they call the thing rodeo

E5 
 x 2

E5 
She does her best to hold him
E5 
When his love comes to call
E5 
But his need for it controls him
E5 
And her back's against the wall

E5 
And it's so long girl I'll see you
When it's time for him to go 
E5 
You know the woman wants her cowboy
B7 
Like he wants his rodeo

Well it's bulls and blood, it's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles, the gold in the buckle
B7 
He'll win the next go 'round 

It's boots and chaps, it's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo, it's the ropes and the reins
B7 E5 
And the joy and the pain and they call the thing rodeo

E5 
 x 2

E7 
It'll drive a cowboy crazy
E7 
It'll drive a man insane
E5 
And he'll sell off everything he owns
E5 
Just to pay to play the game

E5 
And a broken home and some broken bones
Is all he'll have to show
E5 
For all the years that he spent chasin'
B7 
This dream they call rodeo

Well it's bulls and blood, it's dust and mud
It's the roar of a Sunday crowd
It's the white in his knuckles, the gold in the buckle
B7 
He'll win the next go 'round 

It's boots and chaps, it's cowboy hats
It's spurs and latigo, it's the ropes and the reins
B7 E5 
And the joy and the pain and they call the thing rodeo

E5 
It's the broncs and the blood

It's the steers and the mud

B7 E5 
And they call the thing rodeo

Garth Brooks - The Thunder Rolls  

The original is in Dm; I usually play in Am capo 5 (so still in the orig key)

Intro

Am 

Verse 1

Am 
Three thirty in the morning not a soul in sight
Am 
The city's lookin' like a ghost town on a moonless summer night

Am 
Raindrops on the windshield, there's a storm moving in
Am 
He's headin' back from somewhere that he never should have been

G/F# 
And the thunder rolls   
Am 
And the thunder rolls 

Verse 2

Am 
Every light is burnin' in a house across town
Am 
She's pacin' by the telephone in her faded flannel gown
Am 
Askin' for miracle hopin' she's not right
Am 
Prayin' it's the weather that has kept him out all night

G/F# 
And the thunder rolls   
Am Am 
And the thunder rolls   

The thunder rolls 
Am Am 
And the lightning strikes  
Another love grows cold 
On a sleepless night 
NC 
As the storm blows on 
Am Am 
Out of control  
Deep in her heart 
Am 
The thunder rolls

Verse 3

Am 
She's waitin' by the window when he pulls into the drive
Am 
She rushes out to hold him thankful he's alive
Am 
But on the wind and rain a strange new perfume blows
Am 
And the lightning flashes in her eyes and he knows that she knows

G/F# 
And the thunder rolls   
Am 
And the thunder rolls 

Verse 4, not on the recorded version

She runs back down the hallway to the bedroom door
Am 
She reaches for the pistol hidden in the dresser drawer
Tells the lady in the mirror he won't do this again
Am 
'Cause tonight'll be the last time she'll wonder where he's been 

G/F# 
And the thunder rolls   
Am Am 
And the thunder rolls  

Am Am 
  
The thunder rolls 
Am Am 
And the lightning strikes  
Another love grows cold 
On a sleepless night 
NC 
As the storm blows on 
Am Am 
Out of control  
Deep in her heart 
Am 
The thunder rolls

George Michael - Faith  

Originally somewhere between B and C, I play in A

Intro, skip the whole organ bit

Guitar only, just one measure in original, in performance *wait for vox*

Bass and drums enter when vox come in, drums still pretty sparse

Well I guess it would be nice if I could touch your body
I know not everybody has got a body like you

But I've got to think twice before I give my heart away
Girl I know all the games you play 'cause I play them too

Drums ramping in

Oh but I need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
F#m 
And when that love comes down without devotion

Hard stop on 'door'

Bm 
Well it takes a strong man baby but I'm showing you the door

'Cause I gotta have  faith

I gotta have faith
I gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith

Hard stop on last "faith"

I gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith

Baby I know you're asking me to stay
Say please, please, please, don't go away
You say I'm giving you the blues
Maybe girl you mean every word you say
Can't help but think of yesterday
And another one who tied me down to loverboy rules

Before this river becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
F#m 
Oh baby I'll reconsider my foolish notion

Hard stop on 'more'

Bm 
Well I need someone to hold me but I'll wait for something more

'Cause I gotta have faith

I gotta have faith
I gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith                              

Hard stop on last "faith"

I gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith

 Solo

   
Before this river becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
F#m 
Oh baby I'll reconsider my foolish notion

Hard stop then LONG PAUSE on 'more'

Bm 
Well I need someone to hold me but I'll wait for something more

Wait for vox before entering... no matter how long...

'Cause I gotta have  faith

I gotta have faith
I gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith

Hard stop on last "faith"

I gotta have faith, a-faith, a-faith

Grease - Freddy My Love  

Originally in Db, I play in A

Get the vox ready for "flipped over that gray cashmere sweater",

and also think hard about how serious you are about the melody in

the bridge.  It's rhythmically simple, but melodically wild.

E7 E6 E+ E7 

Vox start on the 1

Amaj7 E7 
 Freddy my love, I miss you more than words can say

Vox on the 7 of the chord on "touch", down to the 3 of the chord on "way"

Amaj7 F#7sus4 F#7 
 Freddy my love, please keep in touch while you're away
Bm7 Bm7b5 E7 
 Hearing from you can make the day so much better
C#m C#m7b5/G F#7sus4 F#7 
 Getting a souvenir or maybe a letter

Vox up to the 3 of the chord on "flipped", which is awkward,

then on the 5 on "gray", which is not awkward.

Hard stop on "sweater"

Bm7 Dm/G A/E 
 I really flipped over the gray cashmere sweater
Amaj7 E7 
Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love

Amaj7 E7 
 Freddy you know, your absence makes me feel so blue
Amaj7 F#7sus4 F#7 
 That's okay though, your presents make me think of you
Bm7 Bm7b5 E7 
 My ma will have a heart attack when she catches
C#m C#m7b5/G F#7sus4 F#7 
 Those pedal pushers with the black leather patches
Bm7 Dm/G A/E 
 Oh how I wish I had a jacket that matches
Amaj7 A7 
Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love

Vox on 3 1 of the first chord ("keep your"), then 1 5 of the second ("from me").

That sets the tone, although this bridge is super-complicated to sing.  Just hit

the high 3 of the chord on "mind" at the end and it will be OK.

E7 C#m 
Don't keep your letters from me, I thrill to every line
Dm7 E7 Am Am 
Your spelling's kinda crummy, but honey so is mine
Bm7b5 E7+5 E7 Am D7 
treasure every giftie, the ring is really nifty
Gmaj7 F#m7 Bm7 E7 
You say it cost you fifty, so you're thrifty, I don't mind

Amaj7 E7 
Woah, oh, oh, oh, Freddy you see, you'll hold me in your arms someday
Amaj7 F#7sus4 F#7 
 And I will be wearing your lacy lingerie
Bm7 Bm7b5 E7 
 Thinking about it, my heart's pounding already
C#m C#m7b5/G F#7sus4 F#7 
 Knowing when you come home, we're bound to go steady
Bm7 Dm/G A/E 
 And throw your service pay around like confetti

Amaj7 E7 
Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love
Amaj7 E7 
 Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love
Amaj7 E7 
 Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love
Amaj7 E7 
 Freddy my love, Freddy my love, Freddy my love

Originally in Eb, I play in C capo 3, so still in Eb

Am Em 
Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once

Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up

Am I just paranoid?

She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
Am Em

And quit my whining cause it's bringing her down

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
