Capo
2nd fret
Here's how I play it. I kind of cheat by using a capo on the 2nd fret,
but you still get the general feel and sound of the song.


Alex Chilton
(Capo on 2nd fret)


[Intro]

Em   D9    C9  (4x)
A9   G     A9    Asus4

    Em                 D9                C9

E A D G B E       E A D G B E       E A D G B E
-----------       -----------       -----------
0 2 2 0 0 0       X X 0 2 3 0       X 3 2 0 3 0


    A9               G               Asus4

E A D G B E     E A D G B E       E A D G B E
-----------     -----------       -----------
X 0 2 2 0 0     3 X 0 0 3 3       X 0 2 2 3 0


[Verse]
G              G/F#           FaddG          Am7
If he was from Venus would he feed us with a spoon
G              G/F#              A9
If he was from Mars then that be cool
G                 G/F#            FaddG         Am7
Standin' right on campus would he stamp us in a file
G               G/F#            A9
Hangin' down in Memphis all the while


    G                 G/F#            FaddG             Am7

E A D G B E       E A D G B E      E A D G B E       E A D G B E
-----------       -----------      -----------       -----------
3 2 0 0 3 3       2 X 0 0 3 3      X X 3 0 1 3       X 0 2 0 1 3


The A9 in verses is played the same as shown above for the intro.

[Chorus]

Em              D9                     C9
Children by the millions wait for Alex Chilton
              D9
When he comes round

Sayin' I'm in love....  (This part is the same as intro)


[Bridge]

Cm7 (Eb??)       Bb
Never travel too far
Cm                   D
Without a little Big Star


    Cm7               Bb              Cm               D

E A D G B E      E A D G B E     E A D G B E       E A D G B E
-----------      -----------     -----------       -----------
X 3 5 3 4 3      X 1 3 3 3 X     X 3 5 5 4 3       X X 0 2 3 2

That first chord may actually be an Eb, not a Cm7, in which case you
should play it:


     Eb

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


But that essentially covers all parts of the song. I haven't tabbed out
the lead (anyone else want to give it a shot??), which is played over the
chords from the intro. Hope someone finds this useful.
