Song: Pinball
Artist: Brian Protheroe
Composer: Brian Protheroe
Album: Pinball

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' on ultimateGuitar.com)
23rd Nov 2012

In this live video performance Brian plays it a semi -tone lower
than his original record, so without any capo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzs8c8Gkt0s

For the original 1974 recorded key...
CAPO: 1st fret (It will then sound in the key of Ebm
which was most likely a better key for the sax player)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
Dm7    = xx0211   Gm7 = 353333   Bb6   = x13333
G/D    = xx0433   Bbm = x13321   A7    = x02020
D7sus4 = xx0213   F   = 133211   A7-13 = x02021
D7     = xx0212   G   = 320003

[Verse 1]
Dm7                           G/D  Dm7                        G/D
     And I've run out of pale ale,     and I feel like I'm in jail,
Dm7                     G/D          Dm7     D7sus4    D7
     And my music bores me once a - gain,  |  /  /  /  /  |
Gm7                         Bbm    F                    G
     And I've been on the pinball,    and I no longer know it all,
         Bb6                 A7       A7-13        Dm7
And they say that you never know when you're in - sane!


[Verse 2]
                       G/D   Dm7                          G/D
Got fleas in the bed - room,      got flies in the bath - room,
Dm7                          G/D          Dm7      D7sus4    D7
     And the cat just fin - ished off the bread, |  /  /  /  /  |
Gm7                 Bbm    F                    G
     So I walk over Soho,     and I read about Monroe,
      Bb6              A7   A7-13      Dm7   G/D   Dm7      G/D
And I wonder was she really what they said!      |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 3]
Dm7                         G/D      Dm7                       G/D
    Got a call from a good friend, 'Come on down for the week -end!'
Dm7                   G/D            Dm7       D7sus4    D7
    Didn't know if I could spare the time,   |  /  /  /  /  |
Gm7                         Bbm   F                        G
    I knew a woman who was crazy   ...about a boy who was lazy,
        Bb6                          A7           A7-13    Dm7  G/D
But it didn't work out, 'cause they just couldn't make it rhyme!
Dm7    G/D
Mmmm---------!  Hup!


[Verse 4]
Dm7                        G/D
     Hey, Jude, you were alright,
Dm7                                G/D
     I could have grooved with you all night,
Dm7                     G/D               Dm7          D7sus4    D7
    But you turned your back on the party game, yeah, | /  /  /  / |
Gm7                    Bbm         F                       G
    Mama, if I keep my head clean,   will I really have a good dream,
   Bb6                      A7    A7-13     Dm7   G/D  Dm7      G/D
Or will I wake up in con - fusion just the same?     |  /  /  /  /  |
