                "Foggy Notion" from Velvet Underground's VU
Lou, Maureen, Sterling and Doug

Very groovy song built around an A Blues Progression (kinda)

D|--------------------------------------|
A|------------457----------------457----|
E|--55--555--5---5-5--555--555--5---5-5-| Repeated until (1:00) into song

"She's over by the corner
Got her hands by her sides
They hit her harder harder harder
Till they thought she might die

Well I got a foggy notion, do it again
Over by the corner, do it again
I got my calomine lotion baby, do it again
I got a foggy notion, do it again"

...some cool guitar then (starting at about 1:00)

and then on the return to A
