Well, here goes...my first attempt at the "song of the week," and I hope this will turn out. The song is...
I AM THE WALRUS (Lennon/McCartney)
I'm assuming everyone knows their chords here, and I'll gladly answer any questions you may have, but like I said at the top, I'm not good with tab, so this is a chord progression ONLY, with the chords inserted in brackets at the word in the lyric where the change occurs. (Slow, plodding beat)---->
INTRO: B (7th Fr.) A (5th Fr.) B (7th Fr.) G (3rd) F G E

I[A] am he as yo[A/G*]u are me as yo[C]u are he and w[G]e are a[E]ll toge[A]ther. S[F]ee how they run, like
pigs from a gun, see ho[D]w they fly. I'm cry[A]ing. Ab A Ab A Ab A--
Sitting on a cornflake[A/G] [D/F#]w[F]aiting for the va[G]n to co[A]me.[A/G] [F] Corporation t-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday, m[B7 7th fr**]an, you've been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long.
I am the eg[C 8th fr**]gman, they are the eg[D 10th fr**]gmen, I am the wal[E 12th fr**]rus! GOO-GOO-G'JOOB!
[A]Mister city, po[A/G]licemen sitting, pre[C]tty little po[G]licemen in[D] a r[A]ow. S[F]ee how they fly, like Lucy in the sky, see h[D]ow they run.[D7] I'm cry[A]ing. I'm cryyyy[Dsus]iiing. I'm cry[A]ing. [A/G] I'm cryy[E]ii[D]ing. [D7]
[A]Yellow matter custard,[A/G] [D/F#] drip[F]ping from a de[G]ad dog's e[A]ye.[A/G] Cr[F]abalocker fishwife, pornographic priestess, m[B7]an, you've been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down.
I am the eg[C]gman, (woooooo!) they are the egg[D]men (woooo!) I am the wal[E]rus! GOO-GOO-G'JOOB! (song stalls in a cacophony of noise, then play Intro chords, then)...
[B]Sitting in an Eng[A]li[B]sh ga[G]rden, waiting fo[F]r th[G]e su[E]n. [F] If the sun don't co[B7]me, you'll get a tan from standing in the English rain. I am the eg[C]gman! They are the egg[D]men! I am the wal[E]rus! GOO-GOO-G'JOOB-A-G[D]OO-GOO-G'JOOB! [D7]
[A]Expert texpert cho[A/G]king smokers, do[C]n't you think the jok[G]er laugh[D]s at yo[A]u? (HA-HA-HA-HEE-[A/G]-HEE-HEE-HO-HO-HO!
[F]See how they smile, like pigs in a sty, see ho[D]w they snied. [D7] I'm cry[A]ing.
Semolina Pilchard[A/G] [D/F#] climb[F]ing up the Eif[G]fel Tow[A]er. [A/G] [F]Element'ry penguin, singing Hare Krishna, ma[B7]n, you should have seen them kicking Edgar Allen Poe.
I am the egg[C]man, they are the egg[D]men, I am the wal[E]rus! GOO-GOO-G'JOOB-A GOO[D]-GOO-G'JOOB! [D7] [C]
GOO-G'JOOB-A-GOO-GOO-G'JOOB-A G[B]OO!...The song ends amidst a variety of radio noise, a chorus alternatively singing "Ooompah-oompah, stick it up your joompah," and "everybody's got one," over these chords, basically going down the scale and
repeating until fading out: A G F E D C B. I think in an interview with him, John Lennon said he purposely put every chord in the musical "alphabet" in this song.
*A/G, D/F# are the normal chords with the thumb (or other fingers) on the bass E string at the G or F# note to mimic the Mellotron used in the song.
**This is where George Harrison can be seen playing these chords in the video of this song. But of course, it's easier to play them without the barre method.

Thanks! Yeah, and if you want to post one, go ahead; it would be better to take turns anyway--I'm sure I'll get used to writing out songs in that format, but for my first time, that was a royal pain in the ass. Wink
