Guitar chords with lyrics

C'MON BILLY

by Polly Jean Harvey
Performed by PJ Harvey
from "To Bring You My Love" LP
Chords written out by David Heggie

Firstly, the song itself is fairly easy to play chord-wise -
there's no hard chords in it at all.  There's a fair amount of
muting of the strings, very like in her other song on the same
album, "Send His Love To Me". No amount of describing would tell
you how to play this - just listen to the record and play along -
 you'll get the hang of it.

The chords used & how to play them are :

     A chord diagramA minorAm    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramDmDm    A chord diagramE minorEm e:---0-----0----1-----0-----  Notice how she plays the A chord diagramA minorAm chord
B:---1-----1----3-----0-----  it's played this way (hammering on
G:---0h2---0----2-----0-----  the A chord diagramE MajorE and A chord diagramA augmentedA notes) throughout the
D:---0h2---2----0-----2-----  verses.  Again, to make it
A:---0-----3----0-----2-----  clearer, listen to the record.
E:---0----(3)---x-----0-----

Here's how they fit into the Verse and Chorus :
