Hey Emilie

Lyrics/Music by Tim Bluhm
Performed by The Mother Hips
From the album "Back to the Grotto" (1992)
Tablature by krautmonger

This is pretty much the opening riff.  it varies.

(first guitar has a capo on 2nd fret)

Riff A
first guitar
e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
b|------0------------0---------------0------------0----------|
g|----1----------3-----3---------2-----2--------1---1--------|
d|---2---------4---4-----4-----2---2-----2----2-------2------|
a|---------2/4---------------0-------------------------------|
E|-0-----------------------------------------0---------------|

and here's the fill that is played by greg
Fill 1
second guitar
g|--9--9p8--8\6--6\3--3-----------------------------|
d|--9--9----9\8--8\4--4-----------------------------|

second guitar: (no capo)

e|--------------------------------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------------------|
d|--4--------6---------------9----------------4-----------|
a|--4--------6---------------9----------------4-----------|
E|--2--------4---------------7----------------2-----------|
play these chords in steady eighth notes with some palm muting

then there's the part after that:
Riff B
guitar 1 (capo)
e|-0----------------------------2h3--2----------------|
b|-0-------------2--------------3----3---2h3--2-------|
g|-1-------------2--------------2----2---2----2-------|

guitar 2
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
b|---------------------------------------------------------|
g|---4-4--6-6b-6b-6b-6-4-----------------------------------|
d|-6-------------------------------------------------------|
a|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|
(that 6b is a gradual bend up and bend down)

then the first guitar busts this part out--
Riff C
e|-------------------------------7-----------------------------|
b|-------------------------------7-----------------------------|
g|--9---7------------------------8-----------------------------|
d|---------9---7-----------------9-----------------------------|
a|----------------9-8-7----------9-----------------------------|
E|------------------------10-----7-----------------------------|


the capoed guitar plays this over it the second and following times:

e|-----------------------4---3---------------------------------|
b|-----------------------3---2---1-----2-----------------------|
g|--7--5------------1----4---3---0-----2-----------------------|
d|--7--5---7---5----2----0---0---2-----2-----------------------|
a|--5--3---7---5----2------------3-----0-----------------------|
E|---------5---3----0------------------------------------------|


there's one more riff that comes during the "i went down to the desert..." part:
Riff D
guitar 1
e|------------------------------------------------------|
b|------------------------------------------------------|
g|--1-1-1-1-1-----3-3-3-3-3-----6-6-6-6-6-----1---------|
d|--2-2-2-2-2-----4-4-4-4-4-----7-7-7-7-7-----2---------|
a|--2-2-2-2-2-----4-4-4-4-4-----7-7-7-7-7-----2---------|
E|--0-0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0-----0---------|
            <             <             <
guitar 2
e|------------------------------------------------2----2--2--|
b|-----------------------------------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------------------2/3----3-------|
d|-----------------------------------------------------------|
a|--4-4-4-4-4-----6-6-6-6-6------9-9-9-9-9-------------------|
E|--2-2-2-2-2-----4-4-4-4-4------7-7-7-7-7-------------------|


at the end of the song, guitar 2 plays a little solo:
guitar 2
e|-------------------------------------------------|
b|--/5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----/5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------|
g|--/6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6----/6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-----------|
d|---<-------<-----------<-----<-----<-------------|
a|-------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|

still guitar 2 solo
e|---------------------------------------|
b|--5---5---5---5---7--7b-7b-------------|(gradual bend)
g|---------------------------------------|
d|---------------------------------------|
a|---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

here's how it all fits together:

*Riff A 2x without vocals

*Riff A 4x with vocals, guitar 1 only
If you hear hymns and waltzes in your head
And you haven't been out dancing
        since your daddy joined the dead (fill 1)
Don't let anyone tell you they can try to fix your head
Put on your ball room gown now Emilie instead

*Riff A 4x with vocals and both guitars
And all the girls in all the topless bars in New Orleans
All they've got are ass and tits and that don't mean a thing.
And the sound their money's making is exhausting and it stinks.
So finish up your cocktail, EMILIE! (hold the B chord into the trans.)

*Riff B 2x w/o vocals

*Riff B 4x w/ vocals
(the lyrics are pretty complex here, but i kind of got it)
Hey Emilie you can't dance to the sound of a freight train running
        through your head
Hey Emilie you can't dance to the sound of a swarm of honey bees
Hey Emilie you can't dance to the sound of a side of bacon sizzlin'
Hey Emilie, watch out!

*Riff C 2x w/o vocals

*Riff C 4x w/vocals

Don't call me on the portaphone!!!
I want you spinning on my big top!!
Hey Emilie!
I saw you peeping through my window...
At my brand new stereo...
Now bring it to your daddy-o


*Back to Riff A 2x w/o vocals

*Riff A 4x w/ vocals
Hey Emilie, you can't dance to the sound of a freight train runnin' (4x)

*Riff D 4x w/ vocals
Well I went down to the desert on some pill with no name
And the doctor couldn't tell me what they were, man ain't that a shame
Cause everybody needs something that's gonna take away the pain
Awww, Emilie!

*Riff D 2x with guitar 2 solo

*Riff D 2x with both parts

the ending is Riff C but it ends on a F#7

bye
