Hey, Mrs Potter won't you talk to me


2. Mrs. Potter's Lullaby

[Intro]
A Asus4 Asus4, A Asus2 Asus2
(play 4 times)

e|-----------------------|
B|---2---3-3----2---0-0--|
G|---2---2-2----2---2-2--|
D|---2---2-2----2---2-2--|
A|-0---0------0---0------|
E|-----------------------|
(this is Riff A. It's played pretty much every other measure in all the
verses. The A's in the verses are usually the riff above, in fact, but a
simple A chord will do the job.)

[Verse]
A                            D                       E
Well I woke up in mid-afternoon cause that's when it all hurts the most
(then Riff A twice)
A                                   D             E
I dream I never know anyone at the party and I'm always the host
then Riff A twice
C#m                               D
If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts
(then Riff A twice)
A                             D
You can never escape, you can only move south down the coast
(then Riff A twice)
all the rest of the verses follow that same pattern.

Well, I am an idiot walking a tightrope of fortune and fame
I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame
If you've never stared off in the distance, then your life is a
shame
And though I'll never forget your face,
sometimes I can't remember my name

[Chorus]
C#m  D    A        E
Hey  Mrs. Potter don't cry
C#m  D    A          E
Hey  Mrs. Potter I know why but
C#m  D    A
Hey  Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me

Great Tab, but the last line of every verse starts with an E I think. Thanks!

And for the 2nd version (the I think much better sounding version) you have to play it half step down to fit the record.

OK, two more suggestions:
Try the Riff with your pinky on the 5th fret of the e-string, like:
e---------5-------------|
b---2---3-3----2---0-0--|
g---2---2-2----2---2-2--|
D---2---2-2----2---2-2--|
A-0---0------0---0------|
E-----------------------|

At at the last line of every chorus I'd play it like:

C#m D E D ... an on to the Riff A
Hey Mrs. Potter won't you talk to me
