From: Roger Olofsson 
Subject: TAB: Blueboy by John Fogerty (fwd)

Song:Blueboy
Artist:John Fogerty
CD:Blue Moon Swamp
Tabber:Roger Olofsson (raggen@hem1.passagen.se)

This is a fairly easy one. If you haven't bought the CD yet, then do so!
It's a classic...

It's rumoured that John Fogerty once said:
"A good rock'n'roll album should have a great title, at least one hit song
and one great guitar riff"

Main riff
E---------0---0---------3/4--0-------|-----------------------------------|
B-----------3------------------------|-----------------------------------|
G-----0-1-------1---0-1--------------|-----------------------------------|
D---2-------------2------------------|-----------------------------------|
A------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
e------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|

Song is built like this:

Play main riff 4 times (drums comes in on 2)

Way back in the hills
E------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
B------5-----------------------------|-----------------------------------|
G--3/4----4-4-2-0h1------------------|-----------------------------------|
D-------------------2----------------|-----------------------------------|

E------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
B------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|

G--------------------------------9---|-----------------------------------|

A------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
e------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|

Ain't nobody feels like goin' home

Play refrain here then main riff 4 times again

Song finishes off with a solo around the first 3 frets based on the riffs
from the verses....you should figure that out...

"Let freedom ring"

"Oh Rock of ages do not crumble love is breathing still"
"Oh Lady Moonshine down, a little people magic if you will"

This tab was created with the help of an Amiga computer and the sampling
software Audiomaster IV, under the menu effects/duration/pitch the
frequency and the pitch can be doubled, thus enabling the program to play
back the sample at half the speed but with the original pitch.
