From Electro-Shock Blues


This is a song that I love but I've never seen a convincing tab of online.

Standard tuning EADGBe

CAPO AT 7TH FRET - chords are transposed (i.e. first chord I've named C is strictly a G)

           EADGBe

C       -  x3201x
C*      -  x32013 (during the solo)
Gsus/B  -  x2001x
Gsus/B* -  x20013 (during the solo)
F       -  xx321x
G       -  xx000x (sometimes sounds like xx0003)
Am      -  x0221x
D5      -  xx023x (sometimes sounds like Dm xx0231 or D xx0232)


This is a beautiful plaintively strummed song that mostly only uses the middle 4 strings 
the guitar, although

around and during the solo section it sounds like he lets the high e string ring out

occasionally, as shown above. Listen to the record and see what you think.


C                     Gsus/B
  got a 3 speed and banana seat

C                     Gsus/B
  sitting back on the sissy bar

C                 Gsus/B
  went to sev and got a drink

C                       Gsus/B
  wish i was driving in daddy's car

      F                G
and i looked up at the sky last night

      Am              D5
and i thought i saw a bomb

    F                   G                   C     Gsus/B
and why won't you just tell me what's going on?

C                Gsus/B
  riding down on springhill road

C                    Gsus/B
  meeting alfred out in the woods

C                  Gsus/B
  dogs bark and mosquitos bite

C                          Gsus/B
  scratching the itch that makes it feel good

      F               G
and i looked into the mirror last night

      Am               D
all i saw was a pretty blonde

    F                  G                     C    Gsus/B
and why won't you just tell me what's going on?

Am
  life is funny

    D5
but not ha ha funny

F              C   Gsus/B
  peculiar i guess

Am                       D5
  you think i got it all going my way

     F               G
then why am i such a fucking mess?

During solo:

C*    Gsus/B*  (repeat 4 times)

(the solo can be played a few ways, I think it's on the G and B strings. I may add this later)

C                   Gsus/B
  want a pony and a birthday cake

C                     Gsus/B
  want a party with a scary clown

C                Gsus/B
  kneel down and bow to the princess

C                    Gsus/B
  kneel down for the queen of the town

      F                G
and i looked up at the sky last night

      Am              D5
and i thought i saw a bomb

    F                   G                    C     Gsus/B     C
and why won't you just tell me what's going on?


 Gsus/B              C
tell me what's going on

 Gsus/B              C

 Gsus/B              C (repeat to fade)
