                JON BON JOVI-Queen of New Orleans


I haven't seen this song tabbed yet, so I decided to do it.
I don't know if it's popular in the U.S, but they play it on the radio
all the time here in Australia.
I play most of the chords as power chords, but it sounds fine if you
play open chords as well...it's up to you.

Standard tuning
*=step on your wah-wah if you've got one

Intro/Main riff/Verse:
       *         *
------------------------------------
------------------------------------
------7p6-------7p6-----------------
-9-9-------7-7------2-2-5---5---5---
-9-9-------7-7------2-2-5---5---5---
-7-7-------5-5------0-0-3-0-3-0-3-0-

Pre Chorus:
              :you can do a bit of a slide here if you want.
------------------------------

-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-
-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-
-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-

Chorus:

D   A                    B                G
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing with the queen of New Orleans
D   A                    B              G
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing in the streets of New Orleans
D   A              B                 G
Oh, oh, shala-lala nothing's what it seems in New Orleans
D   A          C
Oh, oh, it was almost like a dream

Solo: I think it has a backwards effect like R.E.M's "what's the frequency,
Kenneth?",
and so it's pretty hard to work out.

Here's what you play over the solo anyway:

----------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-
-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5--8-8-8-8-8-8-8--5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-
-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--8-8-8-8-8-8-8--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-
-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-----------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-----------------------------

Last chorus: The last chorus of this song is interesting...
there's a key change...something you don't see that often.  
All it means though is that you move all the chords up 2 frets.

E   B                    C#               A
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing with the queen of New Orleans
E   B                    C#             A
Oh, oh, shala-lala I was dancing in the streets of New Orleans
E   B              C#                A
Oh, oh, shala-lala nothing's what it seems in New Orleans
