Title:  Time Warp
From:  Rocky Horror Picture Show
Tabbed by:  Martin Cox (mcox@indy.net)
Thanks to:  The anonymous author of the MIDI version of this song, my
girlfriend for use of her CD for the real version, and the author of
TablEdit (www.tabledit.com).


This song is deceptively easy.  Once you get the pattern and rhythm down
it's a great little groove.  I find that playing along with the recording
it sounds better if I tune down a half-step (Eb Ab Db Gb), but if you want
to cover the song, it'll work fine on standard tuning.


Intro           <------------ 2x ------------->
G|-----|------|:-------------------------------:|
D|-----|------|---------------------------------|
A|-----|------|----------------------5----------|
E|--5--|-rest-|:-5--55---7--77---3--3----5--55-:|
		It's astounding...


Verse 1
G|--------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------4-------4--------------------------2------------|
A|----4-7-----4-7----2-------22----------2-5---4-555-555--|
E|--5-------5-------0--4-2-4----4-2-4--3------------------|
   I remember, doing the Time Warp...


G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|--05-2-0-2--55-2-0-2-|


G|-----------------------------------|
D|--------4-77-4---------------------|
A|----4-7--------7-4-2-------22------|
E|--5------------------4-2-4----4-2-4|
  The black mists within me...


Chorus
G|-------------------------------|------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|------------------------|
A|----3-----5--------------------|----3-----5-------------|
E|-1-----3-----05-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|-1-----3-----05-2-0-2-5-|
  Let's do the Time Warp again

 
It's just a jump to the left

G|--------------------------------|
D|-------2------------------------|
A|-----24--4-22-4-2-0-3-4---------|
E|-0-34-------------------0-2-0-5-|
           And then a step to the right


With your hands on your hips

G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------2----------------------------------------------------4-77-4-----|
A|-----24--4-22-4-2-0-3-4--------234-55-2-0-2--55-2-0-2---4-7--------7-4-|
E|-0-34-------------------0-2-5-------------------------5----------------|
           You bring your knees in tight...

G|-------------------------------|------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|------------------------|
A|----3-----5--------------------|----3-----5-------------|
E|-1-----3-----05-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|-1-----3-----05-2-0-2-5-|
  Let's do the Time Warp again

The chorus then seamlessly moves into:
2nd verse
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------2-------22------------5----55-2-0-2-|
E|-2-0-2-5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2---4-2-4----4-2-4--3-0---0-3---------|
     It's so dreamy...

(neat little staccato rhythm here - listen to the song for timing)
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|-0-00-0000-0000-|
E|----------------|
  No, not at all...

Start second verse over again...
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------2-------22------------5----55-2-0-2-|
E|-2-0-2-5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2---4-2-4----4-2-4--3-0---0-3---------|
   In another dimension...

But this time end it with:
G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|-5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|


Now Riff joins in and the rhythm changes slightly
G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------222----------22-----------555-2-0-2-|
E|-555-22-0-2-5-2-----44-222-4----4-3-3-0-0-----------|
   With a bit of a mind flip...

G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------2-----22-----|
E|-5555-22-000-2-55-2-55-2-0-2---4-2----4-2-|

G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
A|----3-----5--------------------|----3-----5--------------------|
E|-1-----3------5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|-1-----3-----45-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|
  Let's do the Time Warp again


Columbia's solo
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------55-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|
E|-4-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-55-------------------|

G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------2-4-55-------------44-55-66-77777777-|
E|-55-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-0-4--------22-33-44-55-------------------|

G|-------------------------------|--------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|--------------------------|
A|----3-----5--------------------|----3-----5---0-4-5-6-7-0-|
E|-1-----3------5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|-1-----3------------------|
  Let's do the Time Warp again


Play the chorus again, and finish it off with:
G|------------------------------|
D|------------------------------|
A|----3-----5-----------4-3-2-0-|
E|-1-----3-----5-2-0-2----------|
