                    Beauty Secrets - Be Bop deluxe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: axe victim
Email:

Tuning: EADGBe

This is my arrangement, more for acoustic guitar really, as the style of the track
The intro is a bit like John Mellencamps "Jack And Diane" tune, but this came first!
In fact this A major to D major phrase;

   e  x x x x
   B  2 3 2 3
   G  2 2 2 2
   D  2 4 2 4
   A  0 0 0 0
   E  x x x x


- is one of Bill Nelsons favourites, he uses it all the time.  Its the main riff in
In The World", and features in "Maid In Heaven", "Axe Victim", to name but a few.  I have
it in chunks, if you know the song you will know the proper timing and order.  I have 
lyrics, chords and clues. Please excuse any mistakes.  Corections welcome.

Intro, acoustic guitar.  I haven't tabbed the little solo part.

Lyrics:

Hand me my costume,
please won't you pass me my mask?
I have appointments that I must keep with my past...
Bring on the cabaret, we can all have a laugh...
I've made the theatre of the absurd at last.

Drink up and let's go home.
The demon is on the 'phone...
he's playing a dialling tone.
So, drink up and lets go home...

Orchestrations of a different nature...
Arrangements that I made to end it all...
Years and yaears of love all turned to paper
Dancing at the old musicians ball.

And these beauty secrets that I've kept so long
Have slightly faded like my old blue jeans.
But read them now because before too long
They could fall apart at every seam.

Play me my music,
please won't you warm up the band?
It's my performance although nothing is planned...
Turn on the spotlight we can pretend there's a stage...
I'll be your hero only as long as I'm paid.

Drink up and let's go home.
The demon is on the 'phone...
he's playing a dialling tone.
So, drink up and lets go home...

Let's go home...

The last three chords of the intro should be
G-D-A, not G-F#m-D.

G...D...A....!
