                            VELVET ELVIS - Alex Winston
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:RobFreeman
E-mail:RobFreeman1@hotmail.com

Tuning:Standard
For this song i pretty much used octaves the whole way through as it gives you the
closest sound with a guitar as you'll get.
I have two versions for the chorus, One following the vocal melody (which everyone likes
to play) and one simply backing.

Intro/Verse:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----5----------12---------7-------2---------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------x10--------------------------------|
A|-----3----------10---------5-------0---------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Little parts in the verse
0:20 "Elvis"                      0:23 *Trumpet noise"     0:31 *bell riff*
e|----------------------------------------------------------10-12-8-5-3------|
B|-------------------------------13-10h-13p-10h------------------------------|
G|---12-----14---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------10----------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Chorus: (VOCAL MELODY)
    Play it too the melody, the exact same way rhythmically
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---7--7--7--9--7--5--------7--9--7--5-------2--9--9----2--5--5-------------|

       When i feel your velvet, I can't help it.  Hold your frame.....

G|----7-------------------------7------------------5-----9----2---5-------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----5-------------------------5------------------3-----7----0---3-------------|

  They're coming, they're coming, they're coming woahhhh
(Play this part how you like. Best to the rhythm of the drums though)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--5-------5-------------5------------------9--12----9----------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--3-------3-------------3------------------7---7----7----------------------|

  They're coming, they're coming, they're coming woahhhh

Verse 2. Either repeat verse one or, repeat this everytime it comes back to the C (3rd 
Fret A String).
Im not going to tab it but just play around with the notes of a C major Bar Chord
x35553 as it all works
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------5------------------------------5--------------------------|
D|-----------5------------------------5-------5------------------------------|
A|-----3--------------------------7-------3----------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Repeat Chorus (which does include "they're coming" bit)
Then Chorus lyrics with Verse chords (Swap the A (x0x2xx) for an E (x7x9xx) 1st time round)
Then "They're coming" the rest of the song.
