...JAMMIN'... by Bob Marley
-------------..............

*from 'Exodus' (1977)*


Intro:

Bm  E7  G  F#m7 (x2)

Chorus 1:

      Bm      E7  G                    F#m7
We're jamming,     I wanna jam it with you.
      Bm       E7             G                     F#m7
We're jamming, jamming, and I hope you like jamming too.

Verse 1:

         Bm              E7          Bm        E7
Ain't no rules, ain't no vow, we can do it any-how,
G                     F#m7
 I and I will see you through.

           Bm             E7            Bm           E7
'Cos every day we pay the price, with a living sacri-fice,
G                         F#m7
 Jamming 'till the jam is through.

Chorus 2:

      Bm      E7             G                          F#m7
We're jamming, to think that jamming was a thing of the past.
      Bm      E7      G                      F#m7
We're jamming,  and I hope this jam is gonna last.

Verse 2:

   Bm                 E7              Bm               E7
No bullet can stop us now; we neither beg, nor will we bow,
G                           F#m7
 Neither can be bought, nor sold.

   Bm             E7              Bm            E7
We all defend the right, that the children us u-nite,
     G                            F#m7
Your life is worth much more than gold.

We're jamming, jamming, jamming, jamming;
      G                          F#m7
We're jamming in the name of the Lord.
      Bm                 E7
We're jamming, (jamming, jamming, jamming),
G                            F#m7
 Jamming right straight from Yard.

Middle 8:

Bm    Em          Bm    Em
 Holy mount Zi-on, Holy mount Zi-on.
Bm (n.C)
 Jah sitteth in mount Zion,
Bm (n.C)
 And rules all Creation. Yeah, we're...

Chorus 4:

      Bm       E7              Bm

               E7
We're jamming, pop-choo-wa, see?

 I wanna jam it with you.

We're jamming, (jamming, jamming, jamming),
    G                             F#m7
I'm jammed, I hope you're jamming too.

Verse 3:

    Bm                  E7     Bm             E7
Jah knows how hard I've tried; truth I cannot hide,
G                  F#m7
 To keep you satis-fied.

     Bm               E7           Bm              E7
True love that now ex-ists, is the love I can't re-sist, so,
G          F#m7
 Jam by my side.

Chorus 5:

            Bm                 E7
Yeah, we're jamming, (jamming, jamming, jamming),
G                    F#m7
 I wanna jam it with you.

      Bm
We're jamming, we're jamming, we're jamming, we're jamming,
      E7
We're jamming, we're jamming, we're jamming, we're jamming,
G                      F#m7
 Hope you like jamming too...
      Bm                            E7
We're jamming, we're jamming, we're jamming, we're jamming,
G                    F#m7
 I wanna, I wanna, I wanna jam with you, now.

 Jamming, jamming, (I hope you like jamming too).
      Bm                       E7                      G
And I hope you like jamming, I hope you like jamming, 'cos,
F#m7
 I wanna jam it with you.
Bm         E7                          G  F#m7
 (Jamming, jamming), I hope you like-a, I hope you like jamming too...

there is another version on here that is a lot better. however, if you're just learning guitar this version is definately going to be easier.

not right at all. The chords may sound similar, but they're arent what Bob plays, watch a video of it. I think you might have actually tabbed out the keyboard part.

No...I've not tabbed the keyboard part...that wouldn't make sense at all?!

The way I've tabbed it is the easist way poss. to play the song...i.e. using a CAPO...

If you want to play it the way Bob does..then you take the CAPO off and take all the chords up two semi-tones (or one wholetone...whichever way you prefer to say it)...

So as it says on the tab (Original Key: B)

So if you wanna play like Bob...it becomes Bm, E7, G, F#m7

which is...

Bm E7 G F#m7

EADGBE EADGBE EADGBE EADGBE
x24432 020100 355433 244222

That's the Key of the record...that's what he plays...my way is just simpler...but it NEEDS THE CAPO to work along with the original song...
