CAPO III


INTRO (start off in a jazzy-bluesy waltz): A7

                       D      D/B  D  
Take the ribbon from your hair
         D7              G    G/E  G
Shake it lose and let it fall
                   A7
Lyin' soft against your skin
                 D
Like the shadows on the wall

N/C
(Hold it, hold it, I say hold it, son!
That ain't movin' me! Let's put a little fire in it!)


(three gunshots)


(shift into an upbeat bluegrass shuffle)

D  A7/

                          D
Take the ribbon from your hair (ripping sound)  (Yeeeoooowww!)
         D7              G
Shake it lose and let it fall (thud, breaking glass)
                        A7
Lyin' soft against your skin (slap) (ooh ooh ooh ooh!)
                        D
Like the shadows on the wall

N/C                     D
Come and lay here by my side (tree falling) (Timber!)
         D7            G                                     G/E
'Til the early mornin' light (cock-a-doodle-doo!) (gunshot)  (ohhh!)
                       A7
All I'm takin' is your time (ticking clock) (cookoo!)
                            D               A7    D
Help me make it through the night (help me help me!  ohhhhhhh!)

                             G
I don't know what's right or wrong (Order in the court!) (I'll have a cheeseburger!)
                    D
I don't try to understand (ibbity-ibbity-ibbity that's easy for you to say!)
                    E7
Let that devil take tomorrow (mad cackling)
                        A7
'Cause tonight I need a friend (drinking sounds, belch)

N/C                   D                     D7
Yesterday is dead and gone (Ashes to ashes)
                      G                G/E
And tomorrow's out of sight (far out dude)
                   A7
And it's sad to be alone (oh I can't stand it! Ohhhh!)
                            D      A7   D
Help me make it through the night (sirens)
                   A7                                           
Yes it's sad to be alone (Yes I can't stand it I can't stand it ohhh!)

N/C
