Baby's a Red
By: House of Heroes

Standard tuning
Capo 5 (or w/o capo played in D, I just like the chords better in A)

Love this song, but I couldnt find it charted out anywhere, so heres my best shot at it. Enjoy!

I wrote out the chords that might be different from usual...the rest are
just normal. This is how I play it, and it works pretty well with the track.
    C#m   D2/F#   E/D
E|---0------0------0---|
B|---5------3------3---|
G|---6------2------1---|
D|---6------0------2---|
A|---4------0------2---|
E|---4------2------0---|

Verse 1:
A                               C#m
Ooh, ooh, little red, with your heart in Stalingrad
       D2/F#                                 E/D
Oh, it kills me how they hate you, but they just dont understand
A                         C#m
Oh, oh-oh, red, when they put me on the stand
       D2/F#                       E/D                            A
I will testify I loved you, and Im not ashamed to be your comrade

Chorus:
A (mute)    A (mute)     E       D2/F#
Red!        Red!         Babys a red!
     A (mute)    A (mute)      E       D2/F#
Shes blood       red!          Babys a red!
    F (mute)     F (mute)   C           E
The feds         said,      Lock her in lead;
     F (mute)   F (mute)     E         A
Shes red!       but I        love her!

A            Dm           A
 (Hammer and sickle on my mind...)

Verse:
A                             C#m
Ooh, ooh, little red, its not like McCarthy said
          D2/F#                  E/D
Though we differ on religion, we both support the working man
A                  C#m
Oh, oh-oh, red, if the bombs fall on our lands
         D2/F#                   E/D                         A
Then our politics won't matter...only that I loved you until death
A            Dm
 (Hammer and sickle...)

Chorus:
A (mute)    A (mute)     E       D2/F#
Red!        Red!         Babys a red!
     A (mute)    A (mute)      E       D2/F#
Shes blood       red!          Babys a red!
    F (mute)     F (mute)   C           E
The feds         said,      Lock her in lead;
     F (mute)   F (mute)     E        
Shes red!       but I        love her!

A (mute)    A (mute)     E       D2/F#
Oh!         Yeah!        Babys a red!

Shes blood       red!          Babys a red!
    F (mute)     F (mute)   C           E
The feds         said,      Lock her in lead;
     F (mute)   F (mute)     E         F
Shes red!       but I        love her!

Bridge:
Dm          A                        Dm
  I want to touch you and Im not afraid
          A                         Dm
I want to touch you and Im not ashamed
          A                        Dm (hold)
I want to tell you that Im not afraid...    theyll burn us at the stake!
Dm          A                       Dm
  I want to love you and Im not afraid
          A                        Dm
I want to love you and Im not ashamed
          A                       Dm (hold)
I want to love you and Im not afraid; oh, baby...

(A Dm guitar solo...Ill probably tab it out later)

A            Dm           A                    Dm            A
 (Hammer and sickle on my mind...) Saint Petersburg in summertime...
            Dm           A                   Dm             A
(Hammer and sickle on my mind...) Stars over Moscow shining bright...
            Dm           A                      Dm            A
(Hammer and sickle on my mind...) The shores of Astrakhan are fine...
A           Dm           A    G
(Hammer and sickle on my mi-i-ind...)

Chorus:
A (mute)    A (mute)     E       D2/F#
Red!        Red!         Babys a red!
     A (mute)    A (mute)      E       D2/F#
Shes blood       red!          Babys a red!
    F (mute)     F (mute)   C           E
The feds         said,      Lock her in lead;

Shes red!       but I        love her!
