This, the Left Banke's followup to 'Walk Away Renee', reached #15 in early
1967.  The melody, with elements of the Lydian (raised fourth) and Mixolydian
(flatted seventh) modes, attracted the attention of Leonard Bernstein, who
analyzed it on his 'Anatomy of Pop' TV special around that time.


                           "Pretty Ballerina"
                            (Michael Brown)

Intro:
	Eb    Ab     Eb
	/  /  /  /   /  /  /  /		[2X]

Verse 1:

	Eb      Ab          Eb
	I had a date with a pretty ballerina
        Eb          Ab                Eb
	Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
	Eb          Ab                  Eb
	I asked her for this dance and then she obliged me
	Bbm       Absus4 Ab
	Was I surprised, yeah
	Db        Gb        Bb     Eb   Ab   Eb
	Was I surprised, no not at all

Verse 2:

	I called her yesterday, it should have been tomorrow
	I could not keep the joy that was inside
	I asked for her to tell me if she really loved me
	Somewhere a mountain is moving
	Afraid it's moving without me


Instrumental break:

	Gm      Gm/F
	/ / / /  / / / /

	(string quartet arr. for three guitars and bass; note that top
	 two voices are doubled in octaves):

	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / /  / / / /
	           la la la la     la

[repeat first verse]

Verse 3:

	And when I wake on a dreary Sunday morning
	I open up my eyes to find that there's rain
	And something strange within says, "Go ahead and find her
	Just close your eyes, yeah
	Just close your eyes and she'll be there"

Coda (repeat to fade):

	          Eb    Ab     Eb
	She'll be there...


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers

For the record..this is a good tab. It's right on with the original recording. There's only so much you can do without a 12 piece orchestra behind you.
I can't believe some moron only gave it 1 star. I gave it 5 and I'd give more if I could. KK.
