About this tab version
This is down a full step from the original, [I think] so a capo won't help to play along with James (unless you put it on the 10th fret). Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
James Taylor

[Verse 1]

 Em                 A     Em                    A
He's got arms like legs, he's got hands on his feet
 Em                      A              Em             A   G
He's got a nose like a doughnut, got a tendency to overeat
    D         C        G       Em             A
He don't use tools or weapons,  he don't eat meat
Em                        A       Em                   A
He likes to stick to the bushes, tends to avoid the street
 G      D             C     G     Em               A
But he rides my El Dorado, baby, when he comes to town
 Em                       A          Em                  A
You know he's out there somewhere,  trying to track you down

[Verse 2]

 Em             A     Em              A
Look up in the sky,  mama that's the one, yeah, uh huh
 Em              A        Em                A   G
See the mighty profile,  block the noonday sun
    D              C        G           Em                 A
He comes from the heart of darkness a thousand miles from here
 Em                         A                 Em                  A
That's the land where they understand what a woman might like to hear
 G    D           C         G          Em              A
You know that he loves you baby,  for what you really are
Em              A                 Em                  A
His love is as burning hot,  as a big old ten cent cigar

[Middle eight]

 Em     A     Em   A
[gorilla grunts]

[Verse 3]

 Em                     A                   Em                A
Now most of y'all have seen a gorilla in a cage at the local zoo
Em                     A                        Em                        A
He mostly sits around contemplating,  all the things that he'd prefer to do
G    D               C        G          Em                   A
He dreams about the world outside from behind those bars of steel
 Em                  A                    Em                    A
And no one seems to understand about the heartache the man can feel
 G   D       C        G        Em              A
The people stop and stare but nobody seems to care
Em             A            Em                    A
It don't seem right somehow,  it just don't seem fair
 Em                   A                     
Nononono, nononono, sweet sweet doody doo, 
 Em         A                Em        A       Em      A
Come on baby,  he's still a gorilla, [gorilla grunts]
