Song: Mama's Boy
Artist: The Ramones
Album: Too Tough To Die
Tabber: Stijn G.

\  =  slide up
x  =  muted note
b  =  bend


OK the song start with 2 chords wich goes like this:

e|------------|
B|------------|
G|---9\---1---|               (1-2-3-4!)
D|---9\---2---|
A|---7\---2---|
E|--------0---|

Let the E-chord ring for a few seconds and then the first verse starts:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0---|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0---|

e|--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
A|------------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0--3-3-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7-7-7---|

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|
D|---5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
A|---5-5-5-5-5-5-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
E|---3-3-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7-7-7---|

Then back to:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0---|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0-0-0-5-4-0-0-3-0---|

Then the chorus (Mamamamamamamama mama's boy!):

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|-------------------10------------------|      3 times
D|---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-10-10-12-12-12-12---|

E|---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5----8--10-10-10-10---|

Then a small part goes like this:

e|------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------|
D|---9-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7-7---|
A|---9-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7-7---|
E|---7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5-5---|

Lyrics:

Couldn't keep a secret
Got a concrete skull
Couldn't shut up you're an imbecile
You're an ugly dog there's
Nothing to gain
You couldn't shut up got a
Bad bad brain

Couldn't hold your tongue
You were just too young
Like a two year old you told
You told
You are all the same jelly
Bean brain
Every one's a secret nerd
Every one's a closet lame

Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mama's boy

Don't want to work in a hot dog stand
Be a busboy messenger or a doorman
It's an abstract world you're an
Abstract man
Abstract city don't give a damn

----------------------------------------------------------------------------OK that was
it, I hope I helped you out with this song. Try to use only downstrokes, it sounds way
better! It isn't a difficult song but still very cool like all Ramones-songs! Please 
(my first tab!)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
