                             OH NO - Gogol Bordello
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tigermoph
Email: tigermoph@gmail.com

Tuning: standard

Part: Rhythm Guitar (chords and tab as appropriate)
Album: Gypsy Punks Underground World Strike (track 8)

-Thanks to the 'H-chord guy' who did the bulk of the work.
-This isn't note-for-note, but it's at least a working solution.
-Maybe at some point I'll get through the bass line and solos,
but don't count on it.

VERSE ONE:

B  = 799877
Em = x79987
A  = 577655
G  = 355433

		   /tap on body
NC              ***             B [continuous strumming]
Sometimes when facing common trouble
                      Em
When whole town is screwed
                    B
We become actually human
                     Em
Act like Prometheus would
                        A
Suddenly there is more humor
                    G
And a party tabor style
                     B
People ringing one another
                           Em [bring in bass, accordian]
"Yo man, how was your blackout?"
                        B [guitar rhythm as in 1st half of intro]
Suddenly there is more music
                        Em
Made with buckets in a park
                             B
Girls are dancing with the flashlights
                   B
I got only one guitar!
                          A
And you see brothers and sisters
                         G
All engaged in sport of help
                     B
Making merry out of nothing
                 Em
Like in refugee camp


CHORUS:

D = x57775

NC         D       B                 Em
Oh yeah Oh no, it doesn't have to be so
                    B
It is possible any time anywhere
                  Em
Even without any dough
NC         D       B                 Em
Oh yeah Oh no, it doesn't have to be so
                B                               Em
The forces of creative mind are unstoppaboppabable!


[INTRO] Em Em7(add7)


VERSE TWO: [bring in drums]
NC                          B
And you think, alright now people
                        Em
They have finally woked up
                       B
But as soon as trouble over
                        Em
Watch them take another nap
                     A
Now nobody's making merry
                         G
Only trotting scared of boss
                    B
Everybody's making hurry
                        Em
For some old forgotten cause
                       B
But one thing surely eternal
                     Em
It's condition of a man
                            B
Who don't know where he is going
                               Em
Who don't know where does he stand
                        A
Who's dream power is a bottle
                       G
Put away in dry dark place
                           B
Who's youth power is well buried
                  Em
Under propaganda waves
                         A
Who's dream life in opposition
                        G
To the life during the day
                        B
Who's beaten down in believing
                         Em
It just kinda goes this way!


CHORUS:
NC         D       B                 Em
Oh yeah Oh no, it doesn't have to be so
                    B
It is possible any time anywhere
                  Em
Even without any dough
NC         D       B                 Em
Oh yeah Oh no, it doesn't have to be so
                     B                          [stay on B]
The forces of the creative mind are unstoppaboppabable!

  Aha!   Dananana!   Ala!

Errata: Typo in the line "only got one guitar"; should be an Em not a B. But you already figured that out, right, because you're a clever kid.

I think there should also be a little C in the chorus, going
D C B Em
Oh yeah Oh no, it doesn't have to be so
B
It is possible any time anywhere
C Em
Even without any dough
