Subject: TAB: Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

Title:   Waterloo Sunset
Artist:  The Kinks
Album:   Something Else by the Kinks (I think), anyway the song was released in mid 1967.


main riff during intro:

(for bending the strings, don't go to far - just enough to slightly change the pitch - it's not a Jimi Hendrix solo!)

LYRICS:

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, rolling into the night *
People so busy, make me feel dizzy, taxi light shines so bright *
But I don't need no friends
As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset, I am in paradise *
Every day I look at the world from my window
Chilly chilliest evening time, Waterloo sunset's fine


Terry meets Julie, Waterloo Station, every Friday night *
But I am so lazy, don't want to wander, I stay at home at night *
But I don't feel afraid
As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset, I am in paradise *
Every day I look at the world from my window
Chilly chilliest evening time,  Waterloo sunset's fine.

Millions of people swarming like flies `round Waterloo underground *
Terry and Julie cross over the river where they be safe and sound *
And they don't need no friends
As long as they gaze on Waterloo Sunset, they are in paradise *


play main intro riff again

At then end, I like to hit a few C5 chords (x355xx) while the "waterloo sunset's fine" bit gets repeated

The intro to that *really* sucks and seems miles off
