    THE BEATLES - WHY DON'T WE DO IT IN THE ROAD (Lennon & 
                  McCartney) From the WHITE ALBUM. Released
                  on 22nd November 1968
   
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva





   The intro features three percussion elements. Hand banging 
   on his Martin acoustic soundboard (only heard in the intro)
   leads off, drums entering in a sparse, syncopated fashion 
   and echoed hand claps. Many people abhorred this song, not
   knowing that it is a kind of Conceptual Art, as WILD HONEY
   PIE and other songs from THE BEATLES double album. Lennon
   always resented not to have been asked to take part in it.
   McCartney conceded that it was an answer to his exclusion 
   from Revolution #9 (a much more ambitious Conceptual piece)





    Why don't we do it in the road
    Why don't we do it in the road
    Why don't we do it in the road
    Why don't we do it in the road 
    No one will be watching us 
    Why don't we do it in the road
