Song: Bedbugs & ballyhoo
Artist: Echo & the Bunnymen
Composers: Will Sergeant, Ian McCulloch,
           Les Pattison & Pete de Freitas
Album: Bring on the dancing horses
Tabbed by DJ
12th Mar 2015

Based on the version used on the 12" single and the 'Bring on the
dancing horses' album. The self-named 'Echo & the Bunnymen' album
version has Ray Manzarek adding some additional keyboard elements.

Video performance at this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr0Oz8rMmIM&list=RDnr0Oz8rMmIM#t=45

D  = xx0232    A     = x02220    Dm7/A = x00565 or x00211
F  = 133211    Asus4 = x02230    G/A   = x00787 or x00433
G  = 355433    A7    = x02020

Apart from the Choruses, you could play the D-F-G progression all
the way through, but using the Dm7/A and G/A gives a feel of what
the Keyboards/Strings are doing and adds some variety.
