Your Mama Don't Dance - Loggins and Messina

Tab by:omanyen@fusemail.com

This a great hand-clapping, juke-jivin type of song, played with
a swing-type of shuffle beat. This is best played with two accoustics,
so I've tabbed both guitar parts. This version is done in "A".


[Intro]

  (1st guitar)
e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|

[Intro]

  (2nd guitar)
e|--5----5--7--5----5--7--5----5--7--5----5--7--5----5--7--|
B|--5----5--7--5----5--7--5----5--7--5----5--7--5----5--7--|

[Chorus]

A                           D                     A
Your mama don't dance, your daddy don't rock and roll.
        ( play intro )
     D                                           A
Your mama don't dance, your daddy don't rock and roll.
        ( play intro )
     E                             D  
When evenin' comes around and it's time to go to town
       A
way to go, you rock and roll.


[Verse 1]

 A                     D                       A 
The old folks say, you gotta end your date by ten.
        ( play intro )
          D                                                 A
If you're out on a date and you bring her home late it's a sin.
       ( play intro )
E                                       D
Just goes to show ya it proves that you know you're gonna lose 
          A
and never win, I'll say it again. And its all because-


[Chorus]

Then go to bridge with a walk up:

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


[Bridge]

D
You pull into a drive-way, you find a place to park.
D
You hop into the backseat, where you know it's nice and dark.
D
You're just about to groove and you think it's a breeze,
D
When there's a light in your eye and another guy says:

Outta the car long - hair!

E                          D                       A
Louise, you're coming with me, and we'll call the police.


[Chorus]

A                           D                     A
Your mama don't dance, your daddy don't rock and roll.
        ( play intro )
     D                                           A
Your mama don't dance, your daddy don't rock and roll.
        ( play intro )
     E                             D  
When evenin' comes around and it's time to go to town
       A
way to go, you rock and roll.

@ The Axecutiner
This sounds fine to me. If you don't like the key have you ever heard of a capo or the transpose button up top of the TAB?

Lyrics are way off but you can get that from another site. Chords are kosher.
