                The fingerpicking in this song is pretty simple. You just hit the
   bass string once, then pick the E B G strings, the exact notes are
   not important, just do it in the right rhythm.
   
   CHORDS:
   
      
   E (022100)    Asus4 (x02230)
   A (x02220)    F#    (244322)
   D (xx0232)    C#m   (x46654)
   C (x32010)    G#m   (466444)
   B (x2444x)
   
   
   
   INTRO:
   
   C    D  E
   
   
   Here's approximately how the picking goes:
   
        C                  D
   E|---0----0----0-0-0-0--2-2----0---0----0----0-----0---------|
   B|---1----1----1-1-1-1--3-3----0-----0----0----0--------0----|
   G|---0----0----0-0-0-0--2-2----1-------1----1----1----1---1--|
   D|---2----2----2-2-2-2--0-0----2-----------------------------|
   A|---3----3----3-3-3-3---------2-----------------------------|
   E|-----------------------------0-----------------------------|
   
   
   VERSE 1: [see tab below for picking]
   
     E
   I met her in a club down in old Soho

             A                      D                     E
   where you drink champagne and it tastes just like coca cola

            A   Asus4 A
   C-O-L-A, cola

       E
   She walked up to me and she asked me to dance

     A                           D                         E
   I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said Lola

            A     D             C     C  D   E
   L-O-L-A, Lola,   Lo lo lo lo lola
   
   
   TAB FOR VERSE 1: it's impossible to tab out
   the picking EXACTLY like it is, he picks the E B and G strings
   kinda randomly, but this is as close as I could get)

   E-----0----0------0-0-0-0--0-2--0----|
   B-------1----1----1-1-1-1--1-3--0----|  Then the acoustic guitar
   G---------0----0--0-0-0-0--0-2--1----|  keeps strumming the E chord
   D-----------------2-2-2-2--2-0--2----|  while the electric plays
   A---3-------------3-3-3-3--3----2----|  FILL 1 that is tabbed out
   E-------------------------------0----|  below.
       Lola
   
   
   FILL 1:            b = bend up     r = release bend
                      h = hammer-on   p = pull-off

   A|--------------------------------11-9----9/11----9h11----11---------|
   E|-------------------------------------12----------------------------|
   
   
   
   Verse 2 and the rest of the song is just strummed. The only thing
   to remember is that the electric guitar sometimes throws in two
   little fills, one on the E chord, and one on the D chord.

   VERSE 2:
   
        E
   Well I'm not the worlds most physical guy

                A
   but when she squeezed me tight

              D                     E
   she nearly broke my spine, oh my Lola

               A   Asus4 A

   Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand

           A                       D
   why she walked like a woman and talked like a man

   oh my Lola

   CHORUS:
   
           B
   Well we drank champagne and danced all night

              A                         D                  E
   but when I looked in her eye, well I almost fell for my Lola

   Lo lo lo lo Lola   Lo lo lo lo Lola

   E                   A    D             C    C D    E  [play FILL 1]
   Lola,   Lo lo lo lo Lola,  lo lo lo lo Lola
   
   
   BRIDGE:
   
     A      C#m  B
   I pushed her away

     A      C#m    B
   I walked to the door

     A    C#m    B
   I fell to the floor

         E    G#m   C#m
   I got down on my knees

        B
   Then I looked at her and she at me

   Well that's the way that I want it to stay

   Girls will be boys and boys will be girls

          A                     D                         E
   It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world except for Lola

               A
   Lo lo lo lo Lola
   
   
   CHORUS:
   
        B
   Well I left home just a week before

       F#
   And I'd never ever kissed a woman before

   A
   Lola smiled and took me by the hand

   
   and said 'dear boy, I'm gonna make you a man'
   
   
   VERSE 5:
   
        E
   Well I'm not the worlds most passionate man
