     "Please be gentle with me" by
     "The Supernaturals" from the album
     "It doesn't matter anymore" on
     "Food Records".
     Transcribed by Gary Perkin, November 1997.
     Not many words with the CD, so this is what they sound like to me.


     Intro: (roughly)
     ------

     a) Opening bass riff which continues through the intro and most of the
        verse.


        D               G               D               D
        1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
     e---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     B---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     G---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     D---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     A--5-5---5-5-5---5-----------------5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5----|
     E------------------3-3---3-3-3---3------------------------------------|

     b) Next phrase, played on the CD on I don't know what instrument...

        D               G               D               D
        1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
     e------8-----7---------8-----7---------8-----7---------8-----7--------|
     B---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     G---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     D------------------5--------------------------------------------------|
     A--5-------------------------------5---------------5------------------|
     E---------------------------------------------------------------------|


     Verse 1: (Sung over the intro)
     --------

     D         G           D  D
     Please be gentle with me,

               D         G                  D        D
     'cos I've been on a long, hard, losing streak,

              A                                 G
     And I've been down in the dumps, I've been well and truly humped,

            A
     And my clothes don't seem to fit,

            G                (DDDD D2D2D2 x 2)
     and my haircuts looking shit.


     NB For the "A-G" part above, use the same "G" riff from the intro, and
     an "A" riff, which is exactly the same but (predictably!) up two
     frets.


     Verse 2: (Turn up the distortion!)
     --------

     D      D2 Gsus4  G    D D2 D D2
     Please be gentle with me,

            D       D2  Gsus4         G  D D2 D D2
     yes my singing has gone flat out of key,

             Asus4        A   Asus4 A           Gsus4     G Gsus4  G
     Oh I've been down in the bin, crawled back out back in again,
     And my clothes don't seem to fit, and my haircuts looking...

     (The Asus4/A might well be A/A2, or a combination of all three,
      but with all the distortion, who can tell?!?)


     Bridge:
     -------

     C  G        D    C     G      D
      I say to myself, have I been cursed?

     C    G          D                C                    A
      Cos things are bad can they get worse? (can they get worse?)


     Verse 3:
     --------

     D         G           D  D
     Please be gentle with me,  yes my

     D            G                   D      D
     backside, is hanging, out in the breeze

             A                            G
     Oh I've been down in the dumps, I've been well and truly humped,

            A
     And my clothes don't seem to fit,

            G               (DDDD D2D2D2 x 2)
     yes my haircuts looking shit.


     Solo (sort of):
     ---------------

        F#m             Bm              F#m             Bm
        1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
     e---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     B--------7-------------------------------7----------------------------|
     G------------6-----4-6-4-6-4-6-4-6-----------6-----4-6-4-6-4-6-4-6----|
     D--7-------------7-----------------7-------------7--------------------|
     A---------------------------------------------------------------------|
     E---------------------------------------------------------------------|

     Bend each note up a semitone and down again as it's played, and use
     some sort of effect. Alternatively, play it on a keyboard...


     Bridge:
     -------

     C  G        D    C     G      D
      I say to myself, have I been cursed?

     C    G          D                C                    A
      Cos things are bad can they get worse? (can they get worse?)


     Final part-verse: (different chord sequence)
     -----------------

     D          G           Bm     A           D
     Please, be gentle with me, be gentle with me
