Eddie Walker by Ben Folds Five
Transcribed by Ryan Hughes

A                                A/C#     D
Won't you smile you look so shocked
Put the name tag on your smock
        E7        A/C#                 D             E
We've come to see you Eddie Walker
A                     A/C#     D
We may pack a little tight
The girl up front says it's all right
                  E7               A/C#
and look there's more of us
       D                   A/C#

and you're learning how to walk
E7                           A/C#                 D
they pick you up and you keep fallin down
A                                A/C#     D
There you are with aunt Louise
you're bouncing on her knees
E7                          A/C#                 D

No Eddie Walker she doesn't hate your guts
Fdim7                                         A
It's just the whole thing shook her up
        D#dim                D       Fdim7
How they picked you up and you kept falling down

E7=     X,5,6,4,6,X
A/F#=   X,X,4,6,5,X
A/E =   X,7,X,6,5,X

>From the chorus using the descending bassline

D       X,5,7,7,7,X
D/C#    X,4,7,7,7,X
D/B     7,X,7,7,7,X
D/A     5,X,7,7,7,X
E/G#    4,X,X,4,5,4
E/F#    2,X,X,4,5,4
E       0,2,2,1,0,0 ----within the verse I use the other E voicing

from the Mary jo verse

D#dim   X,6,7,8,7,X
F#dim7  X,9,10,8,10,X
Fdim7   X,8,9,7,9,X

Instrumental part before the last verse

F#m     2,4,4,2,2,2
D       X,5,7,7,7,5
A       5,7,7,6,5,5
E       0,2,2,1,0,0

A/C#    X,4,7,6,5,X
D       X,5,7,7,7,X

I think that is all. Thanks to Skip for submitting the other
Ben Folds songs. This is my favorite band, and Id like
to help some other guitarists play their material.  -Ryan
