                             THE BITCH IS BACK - Elton John
Tabbed by: Beavis
Email: stillwaterguitars@gmail.com
Tuning: Standard (Capo I)

I play this on my acoustic.  It's in G# transposed to G 
here so capo on the first fret.

I play the intro strumming chords but if you want to 
sound like the recording it's this:

Riff 1:
 Very fast strumming----|   x  x  x
G|--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--10-10-10--x--||  Play 4x

Elton's guitar player uses this pattern throughout the breaks between verses.  
He mixes it up with different speeds and rhythms but that's the gist of it. 
Don't copy him, play it your way!  Here's the chords and changes:

Capo I

   G                 C      G
I was justified when I was five
C        G       D           G
Raising cane, I spit in your eye
F                            C
Times are changing, now the poor get fat
         C             G                  D          G   
But the fever's gonna catch you when the bitch gets back

Riff 1 x 2

     G              C     G
Eat meat on Friday that's alright
C          G          D        G
Even like steak on a Saturday night
F                             C
I can bitch the best at your social do's
      C           G                D       G
I get high in the evening sniffing pots of glue

Riff 1

G     D
I'm a bitch, I'm a bitch, oh the bitch is back
G                      C
Stone cold sober as a matter of fact
I can bitch, I can bitch, `Cause I'm better than you
It's the way that I move
    D                   G 
The things that I do,  oh

Riff 1 x 4

G              C       G
I entertain by picking brains
C         G       D        G
Sell my soul by dropping names
F                       C
I don't like those, my God, what's that
         C            G               D           G
Oh it's full of nasty habits when the bitch gets back

Riff 1


Riff 1 x 2

Musical break, play verse chords


Riff 1 x 2

Outro (repeat and fade)
G             F C             G       F C
Bitch, Bitch,   The Bitch is Back
