From: Gary and Teresa Vander Ploeg 
Subject: She's Too Tough - Def Leppard

                         "She's Too Tough" - Def Leppard
                          From the Album "Retro-Active"
                         Words and music by: Joe Elliott
 
     I liked this song the first time I heard it in 1987 on Helix's Wild in the
Streets album.  When Def Leppard released it as a b-side on the Heaven single
CD, I was amazed that it could actually sound better.  The remixed version on
the Retro-Active album is even better, yet.  Both guitar parts are transcribed
here, although I am not positive about the division of the parts between the two
guitars.
 
V = Palm mute
/ = Slide up
\ = Slide down
/B\ = Bend
~ = Vibrato
^ = Hammer on/off

(Riff 'A')
Black stockings and a high heeled dress
Good lookin' your face is a mess
She's no angel
Oh, no
(Riff 'A')
Gun loaded, she's got plenty to spare
She'll pull your trigger before you're there
She's no angel
Oh, no
 
CHORUS    (Riff 'B')
          She's too tough
          Can't help it
          She just can't help it
 
CHORUS
 
(Riff 'A')
Hands off, its a catch twenty-two
You can't touch and she can't refuse
She's no angel
Oh, no
(Riff 'A')
Whiplash, give her six of the best
Lay back, let her mind do the rest
She's no angel
Oh, no
 
CHORUS    (Riff 'B' 4 times)
SOLO      (Riff 'C' 2 times)
CHORUS    (Riff 'B')
          (Riff 'D')
          She's too
          Tough
CHORUS    (Riff 'C' 4 times and fade)
 
 
I've cooked up my own little guitar fill for the second guitar in the chorus:
 
E|--------------------------------------
B|-----------------8-8--6-5-6~~~~~~~~~~-
G|------5--------7----------------------
D|------------5-------------------------
A|-3------------------------------------
E|--------------------------------------
   She's     to             tough   can't help it, she just can't help it
 
etc
