                            "Jug Band Music"
                            (John Sebastian)

Intro:

	bass [guitar enters 3rd bar]:

	 v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
    -----5-3---2-----|-----5-3----------|
    ---2---------1-2-|---2--------------|
    -3---------------|-3-----------0-2--|
    -----------------|-----------3------|
     <---- 3X --------------------------|

Verse 1:

	       C
	I was down in Savannah, eatin' cream and bananas
	          G7
	When the heat just made me faint
	    (G7)
	I began to get cross-eyed, I thought I was lost, I'd
                                     C
	Begun to see things as they ain't
	       (C)
	As the relatives gathered to see what's the matter
	                              D7
	The doctor came to see was I dyin'
	         C
	But the doctor said, "Give him jug band music
	    G7                          C
	It seems to make him feel just fine"

Refrain 1:

	       G7
	I was told a little tale about a skinny-as-a-rail
	                          C
	Eight-foot cowboy with a headache
	        G7
	He was hung up in the desert swattin' rats and tryin' to get
	                                           C
	A drink of water with his knees a-gettin' mud-caked
	         (C)
	And I'll tell you in a sentence how he stumbled in to Memphis,
	                                     F
	Tennessee, hardly crawlin', lookin' dust-baked
	   (F)
	We gave him a little water, a little bit of wine
	    C
	He opened up his eyes, but they didn't seem to shine
	         (C)
	Then the doctor said, "Give him jug band music
	    G7                          C
	It seems to make him feel just fine"

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	So if you ever get sickly, get Sis to run quickly
	To the dusty closet shelf
	And pull out a washboard, and play a guitar chord
	And do a little do-it-yourself
	And call on your neighbors to put down their labors
	And come and play the hardware in time
	'Cause the doctor said, "Give him jug band music
	It seems to make him feel just fine"

Refrain 2:

	I was floatin' in the ocean greased with suntan lotion
	When I got wiped out by a beach boy
	He was surfin' when he hit me but jumped off his board to get me
	And he dragged me by the armpit like a child's toy
	As we staggered into land with all the waiters eatin' sandwiches
	He tried to mooch a towel from the hoi polloi
	He emptied out his eardrums, I emptied out mine
	And everybody knows that the very last line
	Is "the doctor said, 'Give him jug band music
	It seems to make him feel just fine'"

Coda:

[repeat bars 1 and 4 of intro]

	"yakety throw-up guitar" (6-string bass w/fuzz), last bar:

	And the doctor said "give him jug band music
	    G7                          C
	It seems to make him feel just fine"
