Bathtub Gin

From: John.Greene@student.umass.edu (John Greene)
Solo from Kirk Mehtlan (KM1324@ark.ship.edu)
(Minor corrections by Eric Berman)

C7 Gm7 C7 Gm7 F Eb F Eb D Am7 D Am7
It's kind of like a 1..2.. circus beat....

Intro: C7 Gm7

C7                    Gm7    C7                             Gm7

Brett is in the bathtub,      making soup for the ambassidors,
F                     Eb     F                        Eb
And I am in the hallway,      singing to the trubidors,
C7                          Gm7     C7              Gm7
And the kings are all lined up,     outside the gate,
F                           Eb     F                           Eb
And the autumn bell is ringing,     but they'll just have to wait.

D                C      D                    C --> B ---> Bb
Where is the joker?     Have you seen him around with his 3-combed...
Bb     Fm7  Bb                      Fm7
Cap,        that he wears like a crown
Bb                               Fm7 Bb                    Fm7
Have you seen his striped stockings, and heard his sad tails,
C7                      Gm7   C7                            Gm7
About the kids under carpet,  and the purple humpback whales.

C, Gm7, C, Gm7 (keyboard weirdness)

Here comes the ambassidors, they show up one by one,
And Brett is tasting all the soup to see if it done
And Wendy's on the window sill, waiting to be let in,
And we're all in the bathtub now, making bathtub gin,
And the kings storm the hallway, they've climbed up through the gate,
They didn't mean to be impolite, but they just couldn't wait,
Here comes the joker, with his silly grin,
He carries a martini, made of bathtub gin

(more weirdness)

Here comes the joker, we all must laugh,
Cause we're all in this together, and we love to take a bath.

(solo: C7, Gm7, C7, Gm7, F, Eb, F, Eb etc....)

Bouncing Round the Room

From: John.Greene@student.umass.edu (John Greene)
Mike's Note's (The real thing kids..)
From: Phish newsletter April, May 92

    G           D
The woman was a dream I had
       A              D
Though rather hard to keep
    G                 D
for when my eyes were watching hers
     A
They closed,
                  D
And I was still asleep.

    A
For when my hand was holding hers
G                          D
She whispered words and I awoke
            A
And faintly bouncing around the room
    C                G
The echo of whomever spoke
   D                A
I awoke and faintly bouncing round the room
    C                G      A
the echo of whomever spoke.

    G               D
The place I saw was far beneath
    A              D
The surface of the sea
   G
My sight was poor
    D
But I was sure
    A                           D
The sirens sang their songs for me
     A
They dance above me as I sink
G                            D
I see them through a crystal haze
              A
And hear them bouncing round the room
    C                  G
the never ending coral maze
            D
The crystal haze
              A
And hear them bouncing round the room
    C                  G
the never ending coral maze
C                  G              A
That time then and once again I'm bouncing around the room.

chorus: D A C G D A C G D A C G  ...

song >>LAWN BOY
by   >>PHISH
on the album of the same name...
transcribed by jeff johnston

The trick is to get used to the off- beat, which isn't too tough,
although you may want to listen to the album to get the feel right.
(By the way, the Slip Stitch and Pass version is COMPLETELY different--
it doesn't have a bass line or typical chords, but it still grooves
immensely, which shows just how awesome these guys are.)

Run Like an Antelope

>From Tim Fallon (no net access)

As you all know, this tune is the jam to end all jams. The part spoken by
Trey is accesable from the disc liner.

 1st section: D->A

 2nd sect. : Em

 3rd sect. : Em->D

After Trey says the stuff that at least I don't understand goes like this 1
time : B B B B B B B B

           D                    /           Am7
 Run Run Run Run Run Run Run Run/Run Run Run Run Run Run Run Run

           D                    /           Am7
 Run Run Run Run Run Run Run Run/Run Run Run Run Run Run Run Run

         (really loud!)  G -> F

And there's Antelope for 'ya! I hope you have a good time with it as it has
the capacity to greatly improve your playing and get you sweaty all at the
same time.

The Squirming Coil

From: Eric Berman (ericbe@microsoft.com)

    G
The Squirming Coil of sunset
  F
I keep within my reach
      C
Tried yesterday to get away
    G
and hitchhiked to the beach


I saw Satan on the beach

trying to catch a ray
   C
He wasn't quite the speed of light
        G
and the squirming coil
        Fmaj7    C            G
it got away....       It got away (4x)
