I have always thought this was one of ELO's best hidden gems. So hauntingly 
melancholy and sad, but so beautiful at the same time. I figured the chords out 
years ago and forgot to put them online until now. No one had ever tried to figure 
this song out and put it online and it's a shame because it's so good. Hope you 
enjoy playing this one as much as I did! -Will Willer

             OH NO NOT SUSAN
             ---------------
(I suggest listening to the song to make sure your tuning is accurate)

G+              Em             Am           D
Susan spent the weekend at her stately home
G             Em           Am          D
Crying at the lions on the garden wall
    B7         Em            C
And then she'd sigh -- sneak away
            Em                C
Look at her style -- free the day

C         G       Em       C
Oh no not me -- I wouldn't
C         G       Em       
Oh no not me -- I couldn't
Am             D     Am        D            Am
That's all she says, her money and her place
Am              D     B7       Em - - -D - -C - - G
They just don't mean a fucking thing *strings playing melody untill next verse*

G             Em                 Am         D
Susan met the Lords and Dukes of everywhere
G               Em                  Am         D
Smiling kissing wishing that they'd go to hell
    B7         Em              C
And then she'd laugh -- wonder why
       Em             C
Take a nap -- sit and cry
C         G       Em       C
Oh no not me -- I wouldn't
C         G       Em
Oh no not me -- I couldn't
Am             D     Am         D            Am     
That's all she says, her money and her place
Am              D      B7      Em - - -D - -C - -G
They just don't mean a fucking thing

Nice job on the tabs. Enjoying learning this fantastic song now. Enjoying, also, seeing how other people interpret the lyrics. Some of them I'm not even really sure of.
