BALLAD OF EL GOODO

ORIGINAL BY BIG STAR



CAPO 2

INTRO: A - E 
       A - E
       D - E - A 
       F#m - E -  A 
       F#m - E -  A 

In some versions, some additional D-E-A is added.

VERSE 1:

A              D                 Bm    E
 Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
    C#m              F#m          Bm           F            
-----this F is in some versions exchanged for a G
and I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds 
A                  D                 Bm   E
It gets so hard at times like now to hold on 
    C#m                  F#m       Bm            F
But guns they wait to be stuck by, at my side is God 


CHORUS:

          A        F#m          D        A
And there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round;
      A        F#m          D        A
there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round 

F#m - E - A
F#m - E - A

VERSE 2:
A                    D    Bm                 E
There's people around who tell you What they know 
    C#m               F#m                 Bm      F
And places where they send you, and it's easy to go 
A                      D                  Bm             E
They'll zip you up and dress you down and stand you in a row 
        C#m                 F#m     Bm           F
But you know you don't have to, you can just say no 


CHORUS:

          A        F#m          D        A
And there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round;
      A        F#m          D        A
there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round 
          A        F#m          D        A
And there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round;
      A        F#m          D        A
there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round 

F#m - E - A
F#m - E - A

BRIDGE:

Bm                            D
  I've been built up and trusted, 
Bm                            D
  Ive been broke down and busted 
Bm                           D                 Bm
  But they'll get theirs and we'll get ours if we can 
     A    D   A    D    A
just hold on, hold on, 
A    D   A    D
hold on, hold on 

two alternatives depending on version.

1- "hold on" continues with same progression
or
2- continues to verse 3 and/or chorus

VERSE 3:

A              D                 Bm    E
 Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
    C#m              F#m          Bm     F
and I've been trying hard against strong odds 
A                  D                 Bm   E
It gets so hard at times like now to hold on 
    C#m                  F#m          Bm            F
Well, I'll fall if I don't fight, and at my side is God
