Guitar chords with lyrics

Written by: T.P. & Mike Campbebell/Album: "Damn The Torpedoes"–MCA
(1979)

The main progression for the INTRO and VERSE of the song goes like
this––
Use a 1st finger barre at 2nd fret, move (not slide) it up to 4th fret.
When you play it with the song, you'll get the feel of it:

CHORUS and then BREAK (see bottom)


VERSE 3:Yeah every time it seems there ain't nothin' .....


CHORUS then END
(the ending is just the first and last measures of the VERSE: A chord diagramA augmentedA to B/A)


BREAK: This break repeats three times, and the fourth time just
       continues the same vamp on the A chord diagramE MajorE and A chord diagramA augmentedA strings, to VERSE 3.

  A chord diagramF#5F#5                                                        The numbers
E-------------------------------------0-|                o     on this
B------------------------0^2^0--------2-| F#5: | | | | | |   chord diagram
G-------------------------------3-----3-|      T | | | 1 |  (and A chord diagramE9E9 below)

E-2--2--2-2-2-2-2--2--2---------------2-|                  "T" means
								Thumb.

The '^' means hammer on the first time, and pull off the second time.
When pulling off, sort of flick the A chord diagramBB string so it rings clearly.

Also, the A chord diagramE MajorE in the CHORUS can be played with an A chord diagramE9E9 in the middle:

  A chord diagramE MajorE     A chord diagramE9E9    A chord diagramE MajorE                                         o       o

                                   ENJOY!
