Subject: TAB: "Sissyneck" by Beck

Song:    Sissyneck
Artist:  Beck
Album:   Odelay
Author:  Russ Allen

I couldn't find a version of this song on the OLGA, and since my
brother and I have had so much fun playing and performing it, I thought
I'd post it.
It's a fun song, not really that hard, once you get the riff automatic.
There's one predominant riff throughout the entire song, and there are
only three chords.  Still, it's a great song, especially if you can
manage to sing it in harmony with someone.

E:  022100
A7: 575685

The main riff is as follows:


As you can see, it's not that hard.  Just finger the E chord and pick
the specified strings, and lift your ring finger for the second little
2-string chord.  Then, release the E chord and use your middle finger
to play the 0-1-2 part.  That leaves your middle finger right where it
needs to be to finger the E again, so you can do it blindfolded.  This
little riff repeats continuously throughout the verses, the bridge, and
the ending.

Here are the tabs for the chorus:

(F#7)  (A7)   (E)

This repeats once more to the end of the chorus, then you go back to
the verse riff.  Remember, don't expect to get the rhythm from the
tabs.  Listen to the song for that.

There is a dobro(slide) guitar playing during the chorus.  It's tuned
to an E, and they mostly just slide up and down between the A and E
frets.  If you are so inclined to play it, just make it up as you go.
I have a dobro, and it's really easy.

That's it for the tabs, so here's what you've all been waiting
for...the lyrics!

[Verse 1]
I don't need no wheels I don't need no gasoline
Cuz the wind that is blowin is blowin like a smoke machine
And if I said to you that I was lookin for a place to get to
Cuz my neck is broken and my pants aint getting no bigger

I got a stolen wife and a rhinestone life
and some good old boys
I'm writin my will on a three-dollar bill
in the evenin time

[Verse 2]
All my friends tell me something is getting together
I got a beard that would disappear if I dressed in leather
Now let me tell ya bout my baby she was born in Arizona
Sittin in the jailhouse trying to learn some good manners

[Go to Chorus]


[Verse 3]
Matchstick strike when I'm ridin my bike to the depot
Cuz everybody knows my name at the recreation center
If I could only find a nickel I would pay myself off tonight
Cuz nobody knows when the good times have passed out cold

[Go to Chorus, play twice]

[Ending verse]
Don't talk to me, if you're lookin for somebody to cry on
Don't talk to me, if you're lookin for somebody to cry on



That's it.  Hope everyone enjoys this.  Send any comments/suggestions
