Written By Carole King & Toni Stern
Performed By The Monkees for "Head"

Performance Notes: Singing and playing this can be a little tricky if you're not comfortable with phrasing in
5/4, such as the intro and verses for this song. It shifts to a swinging 3/4 for the choruses, but most of
the song is in 5. Deceptively brilliant harmonization in the chords, giving it a very laid back, jazzy vibe. 

Dadd4add9 is played by holding the C chord fingering and sliding your hand up to the fifth fret, making 
sure to let the open G and high E strings ring out.

All chord names and positions are relative to capo (so A is fretted but Bb is what you hear).

Capo 1st fret



A    D

A               D
I can tell by your face,
  A                    D
That you're looking to find a place,
   A           A7         D            E
To settle your mind and reveal who you are.

         A          D
And you shouldn't be shy,
A            D
For I'm not gonna try,
   A            A7            D          A
To hurt you, or heal you, or steal your star.

A7        Amaj7     D           A
Open your eyes, get up off your chair,
C                  Dadd4add9  A
There's so much to do in the sunlight.
A7           D
Give up your secrets,
A7                D
And let down your hair,
A                           D    Bm7       
And sit with me here by the firelight.

A    D

A          D
Why think about,
A           D
Who's gonna win out?
      A           A7       D      E
We'll make up our story as we go along.

A              D
There's so little time,
A          D
For us to try to rhyme,
A            A7         D       Bm7   A
And so many highways to travel upon.

A7        Amaj7     D           A
Open your eyes, get up off your chair,
C                  Dadd4add9  A
There's so much to do in the sunlight.
A7           D
Give up your secrets,
A7                D
And let down your hair,
A                           D   Bm7
And sit with me here by the firelight.

A    D    


There are numerous guitars layered on here, I'm pretty certain there's one capoed much higher up
that plays the arpeggiated triads during each chorus. If you wish to add them in with this guitar the tab
would be:
