C'MON BILLY

Performed by PJ Harvey
Chords written out by David Heggie

Firstly, the song itself is fairly easy to play chord-wise -
there's no hard chords in it at all.  There's a fair amount of
muting of the strings, very like in her other song on the same
album, "Send His Love To Me". No amount of describing would tell
you how to play this - just listen to the record and play along -
 you'll get the hang of it.

The chords used & how to play them are :

     Am    C    Dm    Em e:---0-----0----1-----0-----  Notice how she plays the Am chord
B:---1-----1----3-----0-----  it's played this way (hammering on
G:---0h2---0----2-----0-----  the E and A notes) throughout the
D:---0h2---2----0-----2-----  verses.  Again, to make it
A:---0-----3----0-----2-----  clearer, listen to the record.
E:---0----(3)---x-----0-----

Here's how they fit into the Verse and Chorus :

[VERSE]

Am           C   Am          C
  C'mon Billy,     Come to me
Am                    C       Dm   C   Dm C   Am
  You know I'm waiting,  I'll love you endlessly.
Am           C  Am                   C
  C'mon Billy,    you're the only one,
Am                          C       Dm  C    Dm C  Am
  Don't you think it's time now you met your on-ly son ?
Am          C   Am                C
  I remember      our lovers' play
Am                   C     Dm  C  Dm C   Am
  The corn was golden,  we lay in it for days
Am          C   Am                   C
  I remember      the things you said
Am               C         Dm C    Dm C     Dm
  My little Billy,    come to your lo-ver's bed

[CHORUS]
Dm          Am
  Come home,  is my plea
Em                Am
  Your home now is  here with me
Dm         Am
  Come home  to your son
Em
  Tomorrow might never come

[VERSE]
C'mon Billy, you look good to me
How many nights now your child inside ohh - v.unsure about this!
Don't forget me, I had your son
Damn thing went crazy, but I swear you're the only one

[INSTRUMENTAL] for rest of verse

Then just repeat :

Am                C  Am          C
  Come along Billy,    Come to Me

Until the end of the song.
Easy-Peasy.
