                          "The Red Telephone"
                              (Arthur Lee)


	Cmaj7   Am   G   F#7       F  F#
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

Verse 1:

	C            Am  G  F#7
	Sitting on a hillside
	                  F F#   D
	Watching all the people die
	      G         C             E     A
	I'll feel much better on the other side
	            Am       G  F#7   F  F#
	I'll bum a ride

Verse 2/3:

	I believe in magic
	Why, because it is so quick
	I don't need power when I'm hypnotized
	            Am    G
	Look in my eyes
	F#7                  F  F#
	What are you seeing (I see...)
	How do you feel?
	   G         C             E       A
	I feel real phony when my name is Phil
		     Am      G  F#7   F   F#
	Or was that Bill?


	BbaddE [xx8760]   AaddB [xx7657]     [2X]
	/  /  /  /        /  /  /  /

	BbaddE       AaddB
	Life goes on here
	BbaddE    AaddB
	Day after day
	E           Fmaj7
	I don't know if I am living or if I'm
	C           E
	Supposed to be
	D                        C
	Sometimes my life is so eerie
	And if you think I'm happy
	C    G/B    A
	Paint me (white)

	BbaddE    AaddB        [2X]
	/ / / /    / / / /

	I've been here once
	I've been here twice
	I don't know if the third's the fourth or if
	The fifth's the fix
	Sometimes I deal with numbers
	And if you wanna count me
	Count me out

Verse 4:

	I don't need the time of day
	Anytime with me's OK
	I just don't want you using up my time
	'Cause that's not right


	[repeat 3X:]
	Am                A
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	[repeat 3X:]
	They're locking them up today
	They're throwing away the key
	I wonder who it'll be tomorrow, you or me?

	We're all normal and we want our freedom
	Freedom... freedom... freedom... freedom
	Am                                A
	Freedom... freedom... freedom... freedom

	[continue with Am-A progression to fade]

	(spoken:) Alla God's chilluns gotta have dere freedom

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
