"Foggy Notion" from Velvet Underground's VU
Lou, Maureen, Sterling and Doug

Very groovy song built around an A Blues Progression (kinda)

G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|------------457----------------457----|
E|--55--555--5---5-5--555--555--5---5-5-| Repeated until (1:00) into song

"She's over by the corner
Got her hands by her sides
They hit her harder harder harder
Till they thought she might die

Well I got a foggy notion, do it again
Over by the corner, do it again
I got my calomine lotion baby, do it again
I got a foggy notion, do it again"

...some cool guitar then (starting at about 1:00)

G|----------------------------------------------|
D|-77777777-------77777777------777-77754-------|
A|---------457-----------457-------------457----|
E|------------5-5-----------5-5-------------5-5-|

...the origional pattern repeated some...

G|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|-------------457----|
E|--555--555--5---5-5-|

(1:23)
G|--------------------------------------------------------|
D|-77777777---7-7-77777777---7-7-777-77777---7-7-777-777--|
A|---------457------------457-------------457-------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

(1:34)
G|------------------|
D|-777-777-777-777--|
A|------------------|
E|------------------|Repeat this for a while...

"She made me do something that I never did before
I rushed right down to a flower store"

(1:45)
G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|-555-555-555-555--|
E|------------------|

"I bought her a boundle a beautiful batch"

(1:49)
G|------------------|
D|-777-777-777-777--|
A|------------------|
E|------------------|

"Dont't you know something, she sent 'em right back"


(1:52)
G|-------------------------|
D|-9-7-5-44-5-7-7-77-------|
A|------------------5-555--|
E|-------------------------|

Back to
G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|-555-555-555-555--| x2

"Sally Mae, Sally Mae, Sally Mae, Sally Mae,

and do this little add on when switching to D

G|----------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------|
A|-----------------455-555-555-555--|
E|-555-555-555-555------------------|

"Woo, Sally Mae, Sally Mae,

G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|-555-555-555-555--|

Sally Mae, Sally Mae"

G|-----------------------|
D|-9-7-5-44-5-6-77-------|
A|----------------5-555--|
E|-----------------------|

That's the basic structure of the song, with lots of repeats of hooks and then little 
like this thrown in:

(2:23)
G|-------------------|
D|--9-7-40-----------|
A|--------0345-555---|
E|-5-----------------|

and then on the return to A

G|--------------------|
D|--4-5--4-47---------|
A|-5------5-----------|
E|-----------555-555--|

(2:44)
G|--------------------|
D|------7-754---------|
A|---457-----55-555---|
E|-55-----------------|


G|--------------------|
D|----4567----4567----|
A|-55-----------------|
E|--------5-5-----5-5-|

Just jam with the song and try out your own riffs. There you go, and Have fun.

Thanks man, this is ****ing awesome. VU is brilliant.

Now all we need is a bass tab for "The Gun" off the Blue Mask by Lou Reed.
