INTRO


MAIN THEME x 4


VERSE 1 (with MAIN THEME)
It was many years ago now
But I really can't be sure
Because when it all began now
I heard a knock upon my door


                  CHORUS
It's the wolfman's brother, the wolfman's brother

NO CHORD
Coming down on me


MAIN THEME x2


VERSE 2 (partially with MAIN THEME)

Well the telephone was ringing

  A#        v  ^  v  ^  v  hammer on/off

E|--------------------------86868686--4---------|
A|-11---11---11-11-11-11-11-----------4---------|
G|-x----x----x--x--x--x--x------------5---------|
B|-8----8----8--8--8--8--8----------5-6---------|
A|------------------------------------4---------|
E|------------------------------------4---------|


MAIN THEME
That's when I handed it to Liz
She said it isn't who it should be
If it wasn't who it is


                  CHORUS
It's the wolfman's brother, the wolfman's brother

NO CHORD
Coming down on me


MAIN THEME x 2


VERSE 3 (variation of MAIN THEME, the timing is a little distorted)

Well I might be on a side street

  A#        v  ^  v  ^  v  Gm                  G#

E|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-11---11---11-11-11-11-11------------------------------|

B|-8----8----8--8--8--8--8------------3~~~5-5-5-6~~~~~~~-|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|

Or a stairway to the stars

  A#        v  ^  v  ^  v  Gm                G#

E|-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-11---11---11-11-11-11-11-8b9-8-6----------------------|

B|-8----8----8--8--8--8--8--------------5-5-5-6~~~~~~~~~-|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|

I hear the high-pitched cavitation

  A#        v  ^  v  ^  v  Gm                  G#

E|--------------------------6----------------------------|
A|-11---11---11-11-11-11-11---6h8-6----------------------|

Of propellers from afar

E|--------------------------6---------6-3-4~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A|-11---11---11-11-11-11-11---6h8-6-9---3-4~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A|--------------------------------------5-6~~~~~~~~~~~~~
E|--------------------------------------3-4~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                  CHORUS
It's the wolfman's brother, the wolfman's brother

NO CHORD
Coming down on, coming down on me


MAIN THEME x 2


BRIDGE RIFF x 4   (heavy wah-wah rocking)

  Gm             G#

E|-3--------------4----------------|
B|-3--------------4----------------|
G|-3--------------5----------------|
D|-5--------------6----------------|
A|-5--------------6----------------|
E|-3--------------4----------------|

So meaningless excitement
Smooth and tunnel sound
It's like a cross between a hurricane
And a ship that's run aground


                  CHORUS
It's the wolfman's brother, the wolfman's brother
It's the wolfman's brother, the wolfman's brother
It's the wolfman's brother, the wolfman's brother

NO CHORD
Coming down on, coming down on me


Note:  at this point Trey cuts off the wah-wah effect


FUNKY OUTRO x8

  It's the wolfman's bro tha a   etc.  (scatting...)

E|--------------------6-----------------------|
B|------------------------8---6---8-----------|
G|----------(5)---------------------8h7-------|
D|(6h8)(8)------(8)---------------------6h8-8-|
A|--------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------|


And finally the jam in A#  [A# B# D D# F G G#]
This is the position I start out in, who knows what Trey does...

E|-----------------------------6-8-10-11-----|...
B|-----------------------6-8-9---------------|

Wrong key... it's in E not A# (also, people should get used to writing it as Bb instead) Otherwise its pretty good.
