Not in Nottingham - Roger Miller
from the Disney cartoon 'Robin Hood'

Tabbed entirely from scratch by Oliver Lockwood (o_lockers@hotmail.com)
Many thanks to my good friend Juliette Blum whose musical ear wrote down most of the chords for me.

[Intro] x2

      (on second run through start singing at end)

high e |--------------2-----0-----|
     B |-----2--------------2-----|
     G |--------2--------2-----2--|
     D |--------------------------|
     B |--0--------0--------------|
low  E |--------------------------|
          1  -  2  -  3  -  4  -
                      Ever- y

Then start a-strumming. Listen to the song to work out the strumming rhythm.

[Verse 1]

      A       A7
Every town
Has its ups and down
Sometime ups
              E        E7
Outnumber the downs

[Verse 2]

                  A       A7
But not in Nottingham
I'm inclined to believe
              A        E
If we were so down
            A        E
We'd up and leave

[Verse 3]

We'd up and fly if we had wings for flyin'
Can't you see the tears we're cryin'?
Can't there be some happiness for me?
Not in Nottingham

 A      x02220
 A6     x02222
 A7     x02020
 D      xx0232
 E      022100
 E6     022120
 E7     020100

 D5     xx0235

Hope you enjoy playing this as much as I did spending an afternoon tabbing it!
This is my first tab, so please don't rip it to shreds (!)
but all feedback is welcome. The ending bit isn't perfectly true to the song
but in the film it changes to church bells and an organ, and this version
sounds OK to me.

In the ending there's a few bars that are tabbed before the church bells come in, and then a couple more under the
church bells before the organ, but other than that it sounds great. Good job, especially for your first tab.
