Golden Brown 
The Stranglers


Transcribed on 2 Aug 2005 by Rónán Ó'Dorchaidh from The Republic of Ireland (Wexford).
Up the yellow bellies!!

  Dia dhuit agus shílim gur thaitin an amhrán seo leat!
(Thats "Hello and I hope you like this song" for everyone outside Ireland).

Anyway, great Song. Really makes great use of the harpsichord. Well done The Stranglers!
Okay, this song is a bit trickey as it changes time signature during the verses (from 6/8
to 7/8, I think) but you'll
get the hang of it. It just means keeping the last chords in the bar for that extra beat
on 7/8. I've shown where to do this.
