Oh What A Shame

Roy Wood

(capo on 1st fret for recorded key)


               D
Well I’ve been hanging’ around

I'm just a one of the crowd
          G          D/F#  Em
And there ain’t much going on
           A
‘Til I was cruising along with the radio on
                  Asus2     D
Playin’ one of my favourite songs

Now they are taking my tyres

I’ll get my girl on the wire
          G      D/F#   Em
Supposin’ I ever find a phone
          A
But to my utter dismay
          Asus2   A
I got the answer okay
          A7              D
The other voice was a baritone

CHORUS:
          G                D                
Oh what a shame  Oh what a shame  
          G   F# F  Em    A                   D
Oh what a shame  (Gotta get) Back on the road again


        D
Feelin’ less than inspired

I chased the girl I admired
          G        D/F#    Em
Her fancy coat was real raccoon
            A
She could begin the beguine

While reading Life magazine
                         Asus2  D
And feed her face with a silver spoon

I must be so debonair

I threw my glass in the air
              G         D/F#    Em
And said: “Do you wanna take me home?”
           A
For making such a display
            Asus2        A
She drove me down to the bay
             A7                D
And threw me out in the danger zone

          G                D                
Oh what a shame  Oh what a shame  
          G   F# F  Em    A                   D
Oh what a shame  (Gotta get) Back on the road again

[Sax Solo (* = single strum each chord)  * * *       ] 
D         G D/F# Em    G     D     A     D B E A7 

                 D
Well I have been gettin’ up early

With some beautiful girls
           G          D/F#    Em
And I’ll admit I’ve enjoyed a few
             A
I’m tired of trackin’ around

I end up being the hound
                        Asus2 D
I know this is what I’m gonna do

I gotta get some honey

With a big white sunny top
G           D/F#  Em
Road Rocket Chevrolet
            A
So with her seat belt tied
          Asus2    A
I’ll pull into the side
           A7                D
To see the cops tow the car away

          G                D                
Oh what a shame  Oh what a shame  
          G   F# F  Em    A                   D
Oh what a shame  (Gotta get) Back on the road again
          G                D                
Oh what a shame  Oh what a shame  
          G   F# F  Em    A                   D
Oh what a shame  (Gotta get) Back on the road again


"Beach Boys" vocals solo
D      G D/F# Em  A          D

          G                D                
Oh what a shame  Oh what a shame  
          G   F# F  Em    A                   D
Oh what a shame  (Gotta get) Back on the road again
                       
[Chorus as guitar instrumental to end]
G       D       G   F# F  Em    A                   D
