Mattie's Rag Gerry Rafferty Notes: 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. F Wait till you see what I got you, well D Dsus4 D Youíll say it's a magic thing, itís F Like an old mandolin man, you just G G7 Wind him up and heíll 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. F When I go down to the city D Dsus4 D I just don't know wrong from right F 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 F Love is a singular thing, it can D Dsus4 D Take you up or bring you down, yes F 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
