The whistle solo is tabbed out at the bottom.

B F# E F#
  B          F#           E          F#
I got out of bed and came here for adventure.
  B            F#           E        F#
I stepped on a stone on the way.
  B7          E          D#m        G#m
I took off my shoe and a dog came towards me
E           F#        B    B7
wagging his tail happily.

E                 F#           B
Dog, if you could speak, you'd know what to do.
E           F#         B
Simply turn around and run.
E                 F#         D#m       G#m
Dog, if you could speak, you bury your bone
        E           F#       B
and you show me the way back home.

B          F#         E         F#
Got out of bed, and I put on my sun suit.
B           F#          E       F#
Blue checky shirt and a dress.
B7          E          D#m       G#m
Nothing was left for a girl in pajamas.
   E             F#           B     B7
No breakfast, no kindness, no cake.

E                  F#           B
Girl, if you could speak, you’d know what to do
E           F#        B    B7
Ages left a gift with you
E            F#          D#m     G#m
Rent a cheap second-hand crystal ball
       E        F#        B
I will trust my future to you

  B          F#           E                F#
I got out of bed when the springs wouldn’t have me
     B        F#        E       F#
They fired me up like a gun
     B7      E          D#m       G#m
Fell into my suit and I walked to breakfast
E               F#           B      B7
Green leafs and blue sky and sun

E                 F#           B
Boy, if you could speak, you’d know what to do
      E               F#       B     B7
You’d sit and let the world go round
  E              F#      D#m     G#m
Remember all you saw and tell it back
       E                F#     B
In the stories when the day is done

  E              F#      D#m     G#m
Remember all you saw and tell it back
       E                F#     B
In the stories when the day is done

awsome how you made the improvising for playing the melody in the solo part.

Really good, thanks a lot. I feel that it sounds best played a little up the neck, with E barred at 4, F# barred at 6 and B barred at 7. E and F# should be played in a first strum just as 4-7-4-4-4-4 and 6-9-6-6-6-6. I don't know the name of those chords. It comes natural anyway.

Capo on 4 helps to make hitting the correct strings easier.

What do you think?
