How to make gravy
By Paul Kelly.

Tabbed by Sam Phoenix

This is my first tab, so don't get too angry if it doesn't work.  My guitar teacher showed me this one, & 
just tab what I know, the chords, the slide part and the lyrics.

     E x 7                                      Some weird chord x8             Repeat this.  I'm not sure 
the other part
   V   ^    V ^      V   V    ^       V   V   ^    V      V   V   ^    V

That's all I know, I'm not sure if it changes.  Now for the slide part.  Timing's probably screwed.


Now the lyrics.

Hello Daniel, It's Joe here,
I hope you're keepin' well
It's the 21st. of December,
Now they're ringin' the last bell
If I get good behavior,
I'll be out of here by July
Won't you kiss my kids on Christmas day,
Please don't let 'em cry for me

(Drums kick in)

I guess, the brothers are comin' down from Queensland,
and Stella's flyin' in from the coast
They say it's gonna be, a hundred degrees, even more maybe,
But that won't stopthe roast
Who's gonna make the gravy, now
I bet it won't taste the same
just add flour, salt, a little red wine, don't forget a dollop of tomato sauce for sweetness and that 
Give my love to Angus, and to Frank and Dolly,
tell 'em all I'm sorry, I screwed up this time,
and look after Rita, I'll be thinkin' of her,
early Christmas morning, when I'm standing in line

I hear Mary's got a new boyfriend,
I hope he can hold his own
do ya remember the last one, what was his name again?                  (laughs)
just a little too much cologne
and Roger, ya know I'm even gonna miss Roger,
'Cos there's sure as hell no-one in here I wanna fight

Praise to baby Jesus,
have a merry Christmas,
I'm really gonna miss it,
all the treasure and the trash,
later in the evening,
I can just imagine,
You'll put on Juniour Mervin
and push the tables back
and you'll dance with Rita,
I know you really like her,
just don't hold her too close, oh brother please don't stab me in the back                (shouts)
I didn't mean to say that,
it's just my mind that plays up,
multiplies these matters,
and turns imagination into fact,

You know I love her badly,
she's the one to save me,
gonna make some gravy,
gonna taste the fat
tell her I'm sorry,
yeah I love her badly,
Tell 'em all I'm sorry, and kiss the sleeping children for me
ya know one of these days,
I'll be makin' gravy, I'll be makin' plenty, I'm gonna pay 'em all back.


Hope you liked it.

Not bad.The verse chord progression is actually--0-----0----0----0-------------0-----0----0----0--------------1-----2----4----2-------------2-----4----6----4-------------2-----4----6----4------------0-----0----0----0-----------In the middle of the verse it changes to just the second and third chords for two lines e.g:
