Subject: CRD and TAB Lloyd Cole's "Rattlesnakes"

Here's Lloyd Cole's Rattlesnakes - fairly easy song.  The riff
I've tabbed out is repeated during the verses and when the slide
from the B to C# occurs, make the E(022100) an E6 (022120).  Also
the violin solo hasn't been tabbed, but its really easy - mess
around in the proper key and you'll find it no problem.

Opening and verse riff

I-----------------------I-------------------------|I
I-----------------------I-------------------------|I
I-----------------------I-------------------------|I  D   Dsus2
I------------------0----I------------------0------|I
I------2--sl---4--------I-------2--sl---4---------|I
I--0--------------------I----0--------------------|I


riff again, except no Dsus2


*verse*
E
Jodie wears a hat although it

D                        D  Dsus4  D   Dsus4
Hasn't rained for six days

            E
She says a girl needs a gun these days

                           D          Dsus4 D Dsus4
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes

*Chorus*
E              Bm             D          A
She looks like Eve Marie Saint in On The Waterfront

E           Bm               D                A
She reads  Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance


*verse pattern twice*
She's less than sure if her
Heart has come to stay in san jose
And her neverborn child still haunts her
As she speeds down the freeway

As she tries her luck with the traffic police
Out of boredom more than spite
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard
She's obvious despite herself

*Chorus again*
She looks like Eve Marie Saint in On The Waterfront
She says all she needs is therapy yeah
All you need is, love is all you need

*Instr*
A    D    Bm
A    D    Bm    D   E


*verse pattern once*
Jodie never sleeps 'cause there are
Always needles in the hay
She says that a girl needs a gun these days
Hey on account of all the rattlesnakes

*chorus pattern over all lines*
She looks like Eve Marie Saint in On The Waterfront
As she reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance
Her heart, heart's like crazy paving
Upside down and back to front
She says ooh, it's so hard to love
When love was your great disappointment

E   D  on fade with the riff thrown in when appro.

Remember to hit that E note on the D string before you begin the riff again.
