(There are other places to play it on the neck too; do what's most
comfortable.)

(The chords are a simple G, F, C through most of the song)

 My blood runs cold        MY   memory has just been sold

(If that proves too daunting (or you have a second guitarist) then
play it as open chords.  This particular voicing is what I
believe Mr. Geils (yes, he exists and was the guitarist) to be
playing on the recording.)

[Pre-chorus]
     Em                                  Am          G   D

   (A part of me has just been ripped the pages of my mind are
                                                         stripped)

(And that's pretty much all you need to know.  No solo, and the
rest is easy if you try it with the song, even that little low
riff after the false ending.  Towards the fade out, Peter Wolf
sings a harmony to the main riff on "Na-na", which you can play
on guitar if you choose)

2. Version of the song

(Used to play this in a band I was in, but we rearranged it a bit - the lead
guitar played the cheesy keyboard parts at the start etc.
Here's a rough idea)

[Verse]
G              F              C                 F   C
Does she walk, does she talk, does she come complete
   G                    F           C               F   C
My home-brew, home-room angel, just pulled me to my feet
G                 F              C              F    C
She was pure like snowflakes, no one could ever stain
    G            F           C              F   C
The memory of my angel could never cause me pain
    Em                             Am        C   D
The years go by I'm looking thru a girly magazine
    Em                           Am          C   D
And there's my ---- angel on the pages in between

[Chorus]
   G              F        C          F         C
My blood runs cold,     my memory has just been sold
   G            F          C             F         C
My angel is tha centrefold (angel is the centrefold)
My blood runs cold, my memory has just been sold
Da, da, da etc.... (I'll post this riff next time)

(Hit the chords hard & sharp (listen to the record for the rythym.)
If time allows I'll recall the riff at the start and post an improved
version tomorrow.)
Cheers,
Bruisa.

3. Version of the song

[Intro] 
(Played on an organ on the original)

(This is played through twice and then the other instruments come in and it is played twice again.)
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|---7---------------------------------------|
D|-9---9-7-------------------------7-------7-|
A|---------10-10---10-7-10-10-7-10---10-10---|
E|-------------------------------------------|

[Main Riff]
(The main riff consists of the chords G F C F in that order. To get the actual pattern of the strums 
have to listen to the original)

   F   G   C
e|-1- -3- -3-|
B|-1- -3- -4-|
G|-2- -4- -4-|
D|-3- -5- -4-|
A|-3- -5- -3-|
E|-1- -3- -x-|

[Riff 1]
[Pre-Chorus]
(The pre-chorus follows each verse as a continuation ie there's no gap in between the verse and pre-chorus.
I think this is on the lightly distorted guitar and has a vibrato to it, wobble the headstock if you don't 
a tremelo for the first E note. Repeat it twice for each pre-chorus)

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

[Riff 2]
(Just before the last line of each chorus)
e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|----7------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9---9-7--------------------------------------------------|
A|----------10-10--------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

[Riff 3]
(The following four sections come during the third verse, about 2 minutes into the song, again 
have to listen to the song to figure out where but they are played once each in the order I've shown.)
e|-------------|-----------------|---------|-------10--------|
B|-------------|--------------8--|---8-10^-|-11-11^---8------|
G|-------------|-----------------|---------|-----------------|
D|--8----------|---10-8----------|---------|-----------------|
A|----10-8-10--|--------10-10----|---------|-----------------|
E|-------------|-----------------|---------|-----------------|
