Someone requested this a while back.

I thought I'd have a go since it is such a simple song.
Everyone should be able to play it - even if they don't want to.

For those unfamiliar with this, it is a little ditty on "Dirty Deeds".
(The album that also contains the only AC/DC ballard in existance - "Ride on".)
Very sparse, trebly, resonably clean guitar sound and no guitar solo
- nothing like the sound of AC/DC today.

Dont take my attempts at representing timing too seriously,
your best bet is to listen to the actual song.

If you attempt to play along with the recording - beware that it may
sound off due to the recording being a bit below standard pitch (my copy is).
(I can get around this by lifting the whammy bar slightly - sounds rotten 
if you play alone, but blends in with the recording o.k since the quavering
is not obvious - certainly sounds better than being out of tune)


Intro: (Softly)
  E      E D# D C   C D D# E     E D# D C    C D D# E     E D# D C  

  C   D   D    B B B B B

1st Verse (all verses SPOKEN - as in all great poetry)

E (let ring)                      C (let ring)
Well I'm upper-upper class high society,
E (let ring)              C (let ring)
Gods' gift to ballroom noteriety,
E (let ring)                      C (let ring)
And my ballrooms always filled - the event is never small,
D (let ring)                      B  B    B     B  B
The social pages say I've got the biggest balls of all.

All chords stoccato (i.e jab then rest) until last line.
(Refer below for chord riff details)

E (chord riff)           C#m (chord riff)
I've GOT big balls,      I've GOT big balls,
They're SUCH big balls, they're DIRTY big balls,
And HE's got big balls, and SHE's got big balls,

    C     C   C   D  D      A     A  A    B

2nd Verse
E                                 C
And my ballrooms always bouncing, and my ballrooms always full,
E                                 C
And everybody comes and comes again.
E                                    C
If your name is one the guest list - no one can take you higher,
D                       B  B  B     B  B
Everybody says I've got great balls of fire.


3rd Verse
E                                 C/E
Some balls are held for charity,  and some for fancy dress,
E                                    C/E
But when they're held for pleasure - they're the balls that I like best.
E                              C/E
My balls are always bouncing - from the left and to the right,
D/F#                                    B  B    B  B  B
It's my belief that my big balls should be held every night.

Fade out to chants of "Ball-sucker,Ball-sucker" 
(at least that's what the kids said when I was at school)

Basically you can use whatever chord positions you like.
For the unadventurous all barre chords or all open chords will suffice.

Hovever the following are my preferances for recreating the sound of this
subtle and beautiful piece.
In general a biting, trebly sound is desired - so pick viciously and emhasize
the treble strings.  The intro should sound more mellow.

The chorus has a chord riff like this (stoccato)
The (D) is an optional passing note. 

E   E   E  E (D) C#m C#m C#m   C#m (D)  (repeat)       

Played ala:

  E    E    E   E  (D)  C#m

E    XX245X
C    X3555X
D    XX0232
B    X2444X
D/F# 2X0232  (optional bass note)
C/E  03555X  (optional bass note)

E    XX245X
C#m  X46654
C    X3555X
D    X5777X
A    X0222X
B    X2444X
