OB-LA-DI, OB-LA-DA


 This song is in Bb, but I recommend playing it with a capo on the 3rd
fret and play in G. If you do this, Bb=G F=D Eb=C  Cm=Bm  Gm=Em


  F

  Bb                          F
Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace,
                          Bb
Molly is the singer in a band.
                             Eb
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face,
           Bb               F                Bb
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand:

                              Cm   Gm
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'
Bb              F       Bb
La-la how the life goes on.
                              Cm   Gm
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'
Bb             F        Bb
La-la how the life goes on


  Bb                            F
Desmond takes a trolly to the jewler's store,
                            Bb
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
                               Eb
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
           Bb              F             Bb
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing:

                              Cm   Gm
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'
Bb             F        Bb
La-la how the life goes on.
                              Cm   Gm

 Eb                                                Bb
In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home
 Eb                                             Bb                F
With a couple of kids running in the yard, of Desmond and Molly Jones


 Bb                       F
Happy ever after in the marketplace,
                                  Bb
Desmond lets the children lend a hand

Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
            Bb                F                 Bb
And in the evening she still sings it with the band.


                                   Cm   Gm
Yes! Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'

With a couple of kids running in the yard, of Desmond and Molly Jones


      Bb                        F
Hey, happy ever after in the marketplace,
                                Bb

Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
             Bb              F              Bb
And in the evening she's a singer with the band.


                                   Cm   Gm
Yea! Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'
Bb              F       Bb

HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN


Note on fingerpicking part in beginning of the song: the bottom three
strings (low E, A, and D) are only struck by the thumb.  Your thumb
should have a steady motion and strike on each downbeat: strike the
A string then the D string then the E string then the D string--thats
four count--then start over again.  So the key to knocking this is
getting comfortable with the thumb motion.  Once you get that, add in
the remaining strings using your other fingers.  By the way, this is
the same pattern John uses on Dear Prudence!  Oh, when the Dm comes, the
thumb just moves up a string so that it plucks the A, D, and G strings;
other than that the pattern is the same.  Have fun!


Fingerpicking pattern:

She's well aquainted...  [note that this section is irregular: sometimes
                          John hold out the Dm for 3 measures and other
                          times for 2 measures.  Gotta know the lyrics!]

  She's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand like a lizard on a window pane.

Down to the bits that I left up town
C                        Am
I need a fix 'cause I'm goin' down.

C            Am         F         G7
        Happiness is a warm gun, mama.
(shoot, Happiness          bang bang shoot)

     [begin cut time: all chords get half the value as above]

C      Am         F       G
  When I hold you  in my arms,
(shooo ooo       ooo      oh)

C        Am       F           G
  And I feel my finger on your trigger,
(yea,    ooo      ooo         oh)

C     Am     F             G
   I know nobody can do me no harm,
(yea, ooo   ooo            oh)

     [back to normal 4/4 time]

  C            Am         F         G
Because, Happiness  is a warm gun mama.
(yea,    Happiness            bang bang shoot)

C             Am         F         G
        Happiness  is a warm gun, yes it is.
(shoot, Happiness            bang bang shoot)

 Fm7
Happiness  is a warm, yes it is,
(shoot)

         C       Am         F         G
 Gun!                               Don't you know that
   (Happiness                   bang bang shoot)
 C       Am       F       G
Happiness   is a warm gun mama.

C             Am         F         G        C
        Happiness  is a warm gun, mama
(shoot, Happiness            is a warm gun yea)

-----------------------------------------------------------

here's what guitar 2 plays when the Dm-Am section begins:

  Dm7     Incidently, this guitar plays a  bar chord
  -7-     on the 3rd count of each measure in this section.
  -6-     They're straight bar chords, only the first Dm
  -7-     has the 7th added.

riff 1: note that this uses a tremelo bar, so all bends will
        refer to usin' that whammy.

MARTHA,MY DEAR

Notes:
This is mostly a piano & orchestra performance on the White album.
I've always liked the song, so came up with this arrangement for guitar
accompaniment.

Any ideas for fleshing this out, improving or arranging an intro for it,
let me know.  Also, this is my first full attempt at writing guitar
tab notation, so hope its close enough for government work .

I use capo at 3rd fret (chords listed are transposed to 1st position)
The song is really in key of E flat on the record (not C)

Were meant to be with each other, you silly girl

Hold your head up, you silly girl, see what you've done
When you find yourself in the thick of it,
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you,
You silly girl

Martha, my dear, you have always been my inspiration
Please, be good to me,
Martha, my dear, don't forget me,
Martha, my love

I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink, no, no, no

I'm so tired, I don't know what to do, I'm so tired, my mind is set on you.
I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do...

You say I'm putting you on but it's no joke, it's doing me harm you know I

you know I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind.

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset. Although I'm so tired, I'll have another
cigarette and curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.
You say...

Then it starts again.
The song consists of these parts in a mix I can't remember
exactly right now but listen to the recording and I think
you will find out.
As always, the timing isn't in the tab, just the fingering.

intro
-----

Now somewhere in the black mining hills out Dakota
There lived a young boy name of Rocky Raccoon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit young Rocky in the eye...
Rocky didn't like that, he said, "I'm going to get that boy."
So one day he walked into town and booked himself a room in the local
saloon.

Rocky Racoon checked into his room
only to find Gideon's bible

Rocky had come equipped with a gun
to shoot off the legs of his rival.

His rival, it seems, had broken his dreams
by stealing the girl of his fancy

Her name was McGill, and she called herself 'Lil'
But everyone knew her as Nancy.

Now she and her man (who called himself Dan)
Were in the next room at the hoedown

Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin,
he said, "Danny boy, this is a showdown."

But Daniel was hot. He drew first and shot
and Rocky collapsed in the corner.

Da-n-da da da-n-da da da...

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
and proceeded to lie on the table.

He said, "Rocky, you met your match."
But Rocket said, "Doc, it's only a scratch.
And I'll be better... I'll be better Doc as soon as I am able."

Now Rocky Raccoon, he fell back in his room
only to find Gideon's bible.

Gideon checked out, and he left it no dobt
to help with good Rocky's revival.

Oh yeah, yeah
Da-n-da da da-n-da da da...

I WILL

This song is in F, but the gutar shapes used are in E.  I
can't tell if a capo is used on the first fret, the guitars
are tuned up a step, or the tape has been altered.  But we
can play along by capoing the first fret and playing in E.
I have also included a version in F for those with capophobia.


      E       C#m7      F#m7       B7
Who knows how long I've loved you?
     E     C#m7      G#m
You know I love you still.
 E7     A      B7      C#m7   E
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
        A      B7      E     A  B7 (with riff 1: see below)
If you want me to, I will.


     E   C#m7  Fm#7      B7
For if I ever  saw  you,
   E      C#m7      G#m
I didn't catch your name.
E7      A      B7     C#m7   E
But it never really mattered;
         A     B7       E   E7  (with riff 2)
I will always feel the same.


 A	   G#m	 C#m    (with riff 3)
Love you forever and forever,
F#m            B7         E    E7  (with riff 2)
Love you with all of my heart.
 A	   G#m	   C#m
Love you whenever we're together,
