"A House Is Not A Motel"
                              (Arthur Lee)

[Intro] [12-string acoustic, 4X; bass enters 3rd time]
        e|----0---0-----------0---0--3---|
        B|-0----3----3----0-----3--------|
        G|-------------------------------|
        D|--2---------------2------------|
        A|-------------------------------|
        E|-------------------------------|

[Verse 1]
        Em                G
        At my house I've got no shackles
        Am                 C
        You can come and look if you want to
        Em                   G
        In the halls you'll see the mantles
        Am                      C
        Where the light shines dim all around you
        Am                   D
        And the streets are paved with gold and if
        Am                D                  Em
        Someone asks you,   you can call my name

[Intro riff] x2

[Verse 2]
        You are just a thought that someone
        Somewhere somehow feels you should be here
        And it's so for real to touch
        To smell, to feel, to know where you are here
        And the streets are paved with gold and if
        Someone asks you, you can call my name
        You can call my name
                              Em    C   Am   D
        I hear you calling my name  yeah    all right now

[Solo]
        Em
        / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /
        Em       C        Am       D
        / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /
        Em
        / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /
        D        C        G        A        Em
        / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /  /

[Intro riff]

[Verse 3]
        By the time that I'm through singing
        The bells from the schools of walls will be ringing
        More confusions, blood transfusions
        The news today will be the movies for tomorrow
        And the water's turned to blood, and if
        You don't think so
        Go turn on your tub
        And it it's mixed with mud
        You'll see it turn to gray
        And you can call my name
        I hear you call my name

[Coda]
[drum break]
[multiple overdubbed guitar solos over Em; original release cuts off
 abruptly, reissues fade out]

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
