Mattie's Rag
Gerry Rafferty

This was originally recorded by Gerry Rafferty in the key of D minor. I have tabbed it 
in A minor. If you wish to play in Dm then set capo to fret 5.

The Cmaj7 is a passing chord and is played on the just the fourth beat of the bar i.e. 
¦C C C Cmaj7¦Am Am Am Am¦ etc.

The Dsus4 chord is played on the first two beats of the bar ¦D D D D¦Dsus4 Dsus4 D D¦. 
Consider it optional as I'm not sure Gerry Rafferty played it but I think it sounds good.

Am            E
Oh Mattie you open up the door
Dm7              C          Cmaj7
That's right I'm home again
Am             E
  You've got a big surprise in store
Dm7               C
  Turn 'round and count to ten.

Wait till you see what I got you, well
D                 Dsus4 D
You’ll say it's a magic thing, it’s
Like an old mandolin man, you just
G                     G7
Wind him up and he’ll start to sing.

Am          E
I've been away for quite a while
Dm7                C              Cmaj7
And I want to hear all your news
Am              E
   Speak to me, let me see you smile
Dm7                     C
  'Cause I've had those home sick blues.

When I go down to the city
D                 Dsus4       D
I just don't know wrong from right
When I get back to you Mattie, well
G           G7
You make me see the light.

Am  E  Dm7  C  Cmaj7
Am  E  Dm7  C

Love is a singular thing, it can
D              Dsus4     D
Take you up or bring you down, yes
Love is the song that I sing, so come
G                    G7
On now Mattie listen to the sound.

Am            E
When you grow up we'll sit and talk
Dm7           C           Cmaj7
Of how things used to be
Am             E
  I'll be your grand old man of rock
Dm7              C         Cmaj7
  With all these memories.

Am  E  Dm7  C  Cmaj7 ...and fade
