I couldnt find a good guitar interpretation of this song as the sound of the song and
the haunting melody mainly comes from the piano and is difficult to play note for note
on the guitar, so i decided to do this myself and change it around a little to fit the
guitar. Ive tried to make it simple, all the notes are flat bar chords but if you want
to play the song in open chords that fine you just have to take the b off all the notes
so Eb becomes E, then you get a whole new sound.

Perhaps you could get a friend to strum the open chords while you fingerpick the bar
chords and follow my tab, just move all the poitions up one fret if you decide to do
that. I dont know why brian wilson used all flat chords, perhaps it was something to
do with the way it ties in with plymouth rock.

Also i find it really annoying when people dont bother to put the chords in the right
place so here when you see the chord Db above the 'been' that means that is where you
play the chord, on the 'been'. This text should be veiwed in the correct font which is
Lucida Console (or a font which evenly spaces out all its characters). NOT ARIAL OR
TIMES NEW ROMAN

     Db
I've been in this town so long that back in the city

I've been taken for lost and gone
                            Eb
And unknown for a long long time

        Ab
Fell in love years ago

With an innocent girl

From the Spanish and Indian home
                       Db
Home of the heroes and villains


Db
Once at night Catillian squared the fight
                                                             Eb
And she was right in the rain of the bullets that eventually brought her down
    Ab
But she's still dancing in the night
                                                           Db
Unafraid of what a dude'll do in a town full of heroes and villains

In this part it changes to the piano riff, you wont be able to play the notes exactly
as they are on a piano as it would require you to have fingers the size of bananas.
Here is a way to play it a guitar by fingerpicking the chords that go with it. The
timing is like patting you head and bubbing your stomach but keep trying...

{Ebm} bar chord position to hold for the easiest and move you index finger for the
bass melody.

 heroes      and     villans....
Just see what you've done

{Abm} bar chord position to hold. have your second finger ready for the note change
and just lift your little finger

Db                                                             Eb
la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la


         Ab
Stand or fall I know there
Shall be peace in the valley
And it's all an affair
                               Db
Of my life with the heroes and villains

Db
do do do do do do do do do do do do do
Eb
Do ap de wo deo wap
Ab
do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
Db
doop de dooe do Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Play slowly and possibly finger pick these notes randomly. I didnt bother tabing this
bit cos there not really any certain way to play it. Just hold the chord positions and
pick. or you can just strum if you want. This isnt in all versions of the song and the
piano chords are quite difficult to decifer.

Try fingerpicking these chords.

Ebm
In the cantina
            Fbm
Margarita's keep the spirit high
F (bar chord 9th fret)
There I watched her
Db
She spun around and
             Ab
Round in the warmth of her body
                        Ebm
Fanned the flame of the dance
                                                    Fbm
Dance Margarita don't you know that IÕm in love with you
Ebm
Dance
.....
Dance

You're under arrest!

Brush the chords of this next part with your thumb,

Db               Ebm
My children were raised
              Fbm      F (bar chord 9th fret)
You know they suddenly rise
             Fbm        Ebm
They started slow long ago
        Db          Ab         Db
Head to toe healthy weathy and wise


Db
I've been in this town so long
   Db
So long to the city
Db
I'm fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough
                           Ab
And sunny down snuff I'm alright

By the heroes and...

>>>Back to fingerpicking the tabbed part at the start quite loudly to give a powerful
>>>darker sound.

Ebm
Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Abm
Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Fbm
Heroes and villains
Dbm
Just see what you've done

ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

This last part is an instrumental of different melodies and doesnt really sound like
you could play it on your own on a guitar while keeping the volume so just play
something like this. However your free to imporovise with this part


Db       Ab      Db      Eb

Then perhaps work your way up to the F on the 9th fret like this (you can change the
chords around but just make sure you end on a Ab then a Db slowly...

For example...

Fbm 2 beats      F 2 beats        Fbm 2 beats      Ebm 2 beats      Ab 2 beats   Db slowly

Thats it then, not so easy after all, but there should be anough to keep you busy for
a while it took me ages to tab so please excuse any mistakes, and sometimes Abm is
actually Ab Mayjor i know but its just easier to fingerpick that way and you cant
really tell unless your being an ass.
