                "The Kid with the Replaceable Head" by Richard Hell & The Voidoids
[Originally recorded on "Destiny Street", 1982]
Standard Tuning (EADGBE)

Intro/Verse

 |-D-|-B-|-G-|-A-|-E-|
E|-5-|-2-|-3-|-5-|-0-|
B|-7-|-4-|-3-|-5-|-0-|
G|-7-|-4-|-4-|-6-|-1-|
D|-7-|-4-|-5-|-7-|-2-|
A|-5-|-2-|-5-|-7-|-2-|
E|-x-|-x-|-3-|-5-|-0-| 

 D             B        G             A
Too young to drink and too smart to think

   G              E              G     A
Attaches on his head with the missing link

        D          B         G        A
He's skinny as a snake and fast as a mink

         G        E               G               A
But he ain't for sale unless you add the kitchen sink

[Repeat progression for following verses]

Listen to the recording for the rhythm, it's relativley simple.
The chords listed are in barre form: the D and B with the root
on the 5th string and G, A, and E with root on the 6th string,
but different combinations of barre or open chord forms should
work fine if you want to switch them.

Chorus

Look out, here he comes again
They say he's dead, he's my three best friends
He's so honest that the dishonest dread
Meeting the kid with the replaceable head

 |Bm-|-C-|
E|-2-|-3-|
B|-3-|-5-|
G|-4-|-5-|
D|-4-|-5-|
A|-2-|-3-|
E|-x-|-x-|

The rhythm guitar plays a Bm chord at the beginning of each line, while the
lead plays the following line. It isn't perfect by any means, and you can
substitute it with alternate lines from the B Minor Pentatonic if you'd
prefer.

E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------5---s5---5-5-x-3-x-2----------------------------------------------|
G|-----s4-----s4---4-4-x-2-x-2----------------------------------------------|
D|-4-4----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-2-2----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

   D         G                A       C
Meeting the kid with the replaceable head!

A short intstrumental section follows, which you can improvise over with a
D Major/B Minor Pentatonic scale (they share the same notes, and thus have
the same scale positions on the fretboard). The reason I make this distinction
is because the key changes. Between 0.36 and 0.48, your ear should recognise
the D Major tonality. After 0.48 until the instrumental finishes, you can
hear it shift to B Minor - just be aware of that change so you can resolve
your licks more appropriately.

 D    D    G    G    A    A    C
Bop, Bop, Bop, Bop, Bop, Bop, Bop!
