                3/4, Key of A

An excellent commentary on religion and politics (this album has some of
the best ever on this subject, IMHO).  Its fun to sing too.
The song is fairly straight-forward with only one main progression.  But the
bridge fixes anyone who thought they found and easy one.  It has a steady 
pulse throughout (the lower staff) at the same tempo as the rest of the 
song, but Frank decided to sing everything a bit faster, just for fun I 
guess ;).  I have tried to notate it as clearly as possible but it simply 
boils down to singing, in the first phrase, 20 eighth notes in the space 
of 14 at the original tempo.  The second has 15 over 10, third has 17 over
14 and the last again has 15 over 10.  You MUST listen to the song itself 
to get the feel of this.  My explanation makes it sound harder than it is 
but I thought I'd give you my interpretation of what he's doing, for 
anyone else who likes to know this kind of thing..:)

*The 7th bar of the VERSE (E) is in 2/4.
The D#mi7b5 chord is played as follows:
6 5 4 3 2 1	<-string (1=high/thin)
x 6 7 6 7 x	<-fret
Play this pattern on the 8th fret (x8989x) for the Fmi7b5 in the intro.

Hope you enjoy this.  It is the first of a bunch I have transcribed and 
will probably post.  These include both CRD and TAB formats depending on 
the song.  E-mail me if there is a particular ZAPPA tune you would like 
to see.  Any comment on the transcription/an*lysis is _encouraged_.
