Spring Heeled Jim

This is the second song off of -Vauxhall & I- and a pretty good one in my
opinion.  I play this song with a capo on the fourth fret.  The intro and
interlusions (if there is such a word) are this RIFF:

   F                         Am


E                          Am
Spring-Heeled Jim winks an eye
      C                  D      Dsus4
He~ll do, he~ll never be done to
         E               Am
He takes on whoever flew through
              C               D
Well it~s the normal thing to do



E                          Am
Spring-Heeled Jim lives to love
    C                D        Dsus4
Now kissing with his mouth full
        E                  Am
And his eyes on some other fool
        C                         D
So many women, his head should be spinning

(oh but no)


E                           Am
Spring-Heeled Jim slurs the words
         C                D     Dsus4
There is no need to be so knowing
             E                       Am
Take life at five times your average speed
       C        D   Dsus4
Like I do
E                   Am
Until Jim feels the chill
   C                 D      Dsus4
Oh where did all the time go
E                      Am
Once always in for the kill
Now it~s too cold
And he feels too old


(ending instrumental played with verse chords)

you may notice my deliberate use of Dsus4 chords and i justify that by
telling you that if you listen to the album closely, it has such a feel
for A Dsus4 chord.

for poor people who cannot afford capoes, i can sympathize, so i will
decode each chord into their correct names and their correct fingering,
but having a capo makes it so much easier.  (the cheapest capo costs only
two dollars or maybe less).  anyway:

                     E A D G B E
Capoed F = A         5 7 7 6 5 5
Capoed Am=C#m        x 4 6 6 5 4
Capoed E = G#        4 6 6 5 4 4
Capoed C = E         x 7 9 9 9 x
Capoed D = F#        x x 4 6 7 6
Capoed Dsus4=F#sus4  x x 4 6 7 7

(questions, comments, phillipics, email me)  bye-bye

Yay! I love this song. Thank you for tabbing it I've been having a hard time finding songs that are on the outside realm of his popular favorites so thanks again:)
