"I Found That Essence Rare"
Gang of Four

.CRD by Hideo Gumm

[Twelfth fret harmonics E-A-D-A for A bunch of bars, then:]
E - E - E - E - E - E - E -E - A - D - E - E - C - B - F# - F#

Paid for the body rare, you see it on TV (???)

Worst thing in 1954 was the Bikini

See the girl on the TV dressed in a bikini

She doesn't think so much, she's dressed for the h-bomb [FOR the h-bomb]


A            B                         E
I found that essence rare, it's what I look for

C          B                       F#
I knew I'd get what I asked for

Paid for the country fair you read it in the papers (???)

Worst thing happens any week scattered on the front page

See the happy pair smiling there (???) like they're monkeys

They [something something something] they're holding themselves down
themselves down]


[Feedback/Percussion Bridge]


Paid for politicians rare they act their photos well (????)

Last thing they'll ever do: Act in your interest

Look through the world with your polaroid glasses

Things all look a whole lot better for the working classes [WORKing

Wow....so embarassing....I stumble across this, one of the first .tabs I ever submitted in the early days of the net....and see IT'S WRONG!! How humiliating....

Anway, obviously the right chorus sequence is A - D - E not A - B - E like I wrote all those years ago....I know I was playing it correctly all along...but I guess I got confused putting it down....yeeeshh....Rest of it is right though....

freaking horrendous. Wrong chords, no rhythm. Should be deleted. Or maybe not because anyone who has heard the song would never use this tab.
Keep up the GREAT work Hideo Gumm!
Why do you guys keep publishing 20 year old tabs from usenet. Yeah, I think I'll pay for your bad plagiarism.
Hiedo Gumm really needs to sue for the usage of his fantastic arrangement.
