Xtc guitar chords for The ballad of peter

Guitar chords

From jws5@ns1.cc.lehigh.edu

Here it is, long awaited ( ) and hopefully accurate.

Some notes:

    (1) I figured this out without having the tape player going, so though the
chord pattern is accurate (pretty much all I-IV-V) I've put this in the key of
G, which may be different from that on the album.  The important thing is that
_I_ can sing it in this key.  So there.
    Seriously, though, transposing this would not be a big deal.

    (2) There is a surprise A chord diagramA majorA chord (or II chord, made major) in the last

chorus.  I really feel like there is another "surprise" chord in the rest of
the choruses, but I can't quite put a finger on it (ha, ha).  The way I've
printed it here sounds pretty good, though.
