      ANY MAJOR DUDE  - STEELY DAN
     ------------------------------

                  Tabbed and chorded by Howard Wright

     As heard on the "Pretzel Logic" Album   (and a damn fine album it is)


INTRO:

Verse:

    A                      Asus2/C#               D
     I never  seen  you   lookin' so bad  my    funky one

  A                    Asus2/C#               G          A/G  G  A/G  G
 You tell me that your super-fine  mind has  come undone

  Bm7                F#m7                        G#m7
Any major dude with half a heart  surely would  tell you my friend

   Bm7                          F#m7                    G#m7
Any amount of world that      breaks apart  falls  to - gether again

         Bm7           D/E          Amaj7           Gmaj7
When the demon  is   at your      door    in the   morning he won't be

  F#m7     B7    A7         G7              F#m7
there   no     more  any   major dude would tell you

 D         G               A5 G5 A5 G5 A5 G5 A5 G5 A5
  Any    major dude would  tell


(These last chords go over the riff-the last change from G5 to A5 should be
slid)

The other verses and choruses go as above, and the solo is played over the same
chords as the verse

There is a middle bit which comes after the third (I think!) chorus

It goes:

 F#m7            G#m7                  Amaj7                C#m7
I can tell you   all I know   the     where  to go    the   what to do

 F#m7            G#m7               Bm7                   D/E
You can try to  run but you can't  hide from what's    inside  of you

(The solo comes next)

That's all!


Howard

A couple of glitches in the chorus lyrics; corrections taken from lyrics at http://www.lyricsfreak.com/s/steely+dan/any+major+dude+will+tell+you_20130135.html

Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you my friend
Any /minor/ world that breaks apart falls together again
When the demon is at your door
In them morning /it/ won't be there no more
Any major dude will tell you

Also, I believe the title line is repeated in the final chorus only

Rats... typo of my own in 4th line:

In them morning -> In the morning

but this was not part of my correction.
