The Title: SAVE A LITTLE ROOM FOR ME
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NB: For the progression of chords in the main part of song and “Dylanish bit”
as I call it to sound right, you should use the chord fingerings described
at the end, especially Em7, Cmaj7 and Amsus2.

Intro:

“Arabian bit”
Em D Em D Em D Em D and immediately move on to…

“Dylanish bit”
G D Em Em7 C Cmaj7 Am... and go on to D in main part…

Main part:
~~~~~~~~~~

When it’s time to pack your bags,

When everything appears as the drag that it is,

Get down that brown case that your Grandma had,

Open it up – think of your dad.

When you’re feeling empty, and the echoes round this cold white room

Have no identity,

G D Em Em7 Am Amsus ..(move on to C)
When it’s time to pack your bags,

Save a little room for me.

Save a little, save a little,

Save a little room for me.

G D Em Em7 C Cmaj7 Am… (go on to next D)

When it’s time to buy a home,

When you’re sick of using a different ‘phone every day,

Settle up your debts, then settle down,

Take that suitcase back to the ”lost and found”.

When you’re feeling lonely, I guarantee the neighbourhood

C -> D D7
Community will rally round you – wait and see,

G D Em Em7 Am Amsus2 ..(move on to C)
When it’s time to buy a home,

Save a little room for me,

Save a little, save a little,

Save a little room for me.


G D Em Em7 Am Amsus2..C Cmaj7..Am Amsus2..Am..D

When it’s time for you to lie down,

When you’re sick of the sound, and the sight hurts your eyes,

Wrap up warm in a single bed,

Tie up the loose strings that are in your head,

When you’re feeling empty, dreams will fill you up

In the big sweet city.

G D Em Em7 Am Amsus2 ..(move on to C)
When it’s time for you to lie down,

Save a little room for me,

Save a little, save a little,

Save a little room for me.

LONG FADE-OUT SECTION
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oh won’t you..

Am Am Amsus2 ..(move on to C)
Save a little, save a little,

Save a little room for me

Save a little room for me.

Woah, yeah!

Notes:
~~~~~~
1. The chords with dots after them are only played briefly as they are
transitional chords.

2. If you don’t know what I mean by the “Arabian” or “Dylanish” bits,
just play along to the album and find out which bits match which
chords. The rhythm with which the chord changes and vocals fit
together needs to be learnt by listening to the song (which is on
the album “The Name Above The Title” in case you didn’t know), and
the strumming rhythm, too, which is pretty consistent throughout.

3. You should soon get used to the main chord progression (as in the
“Dylanish bit”) and it will become second nature. What a fabulous
harmonic progression it is! You can spot a progression of notes
within the chords which matches the bassline (G F# E D C B A D G).

4. The chord shapes below are the ones I’d recommend. The Em7, Cmaj7
and Amsus2 chords should be fingered the same as the normal chord
of the same key except that the appropriate finger should be
removed.

5. Finally, the FADE OUT! Unless you’re recording it, you can’t fade
out, so either leave off the whole thing or do it (or something
similar) and improvise an ending. You should have the feel of the
song well enough by then to improvise something, but I wish I could
fade myself out gradually – that rhythm and chord progression just
seem to want to continue for ever, and to interupt the inexorable
flow just doesn’t seem quite right. (It’s so good I even come up
with long words for it).

Kill the Messenger by John Wesley Harding Ukulele Chords


The messenger came with bad news from the front
Said the soldiers are starving and their swords are all blunt
They need a show of support or some futile sign
That’s what they told me to tell you, not even the words are mine

The messenger came with bad news from the war
Said the fine young men forgot who they were fighting for
They don’t wanna be stars on your tv screen
That’s the general feeling, please don’t blame it on me

And the people said one and one is two
There’s nothing left for us to do
But since we can blame it all on you
A E A E A……. E
We will kill the messenger, kill the messenger, kil……l the messenger

The messenger came with bad news from the town
Said the phone-lines are on strike and the doormen are all down
They’ve turned your den of thieves into a temple
They need someone of stature to set them an example

And the people said two and two is four
Dont tell us anymore
We all know the score
A E A E A……. E
We must kill the messenger, kill the messenger, kil….l the messenger

Someone brought the news to the messenger’s folks
He said your son’s been killed two times, they said is that a joke
He said he was he victim of ignorant minds
I hate to bring such bad news, please don’t think me unkind

And the family said one and one is two
There’s nothing left for us to do
But since you’re here and we can blame it on you
A E A E A…….. E
We will kill the messenger kill the messenger, kil….l the messenger

So if you want to send a message…
Song beat is the old rock a billy sound (bom bom badada bom, bom bom badada bom)
something like Elvis’s start to Teddy Bear or Dont be Cruel. I don’t know how
else to describe it. except maybe play the E, lift open, hammer down E repeat to get the beat.

The People’s Drug by John Wesley Harding Ukulele Chords


Title: THE PEOPLE’S DRUG from “The Name Above The Title”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Got a stupid job, but it’s pin money.
I’ve got a brand new car but I can’t drive.
I’ve got a sweetheart, I call her Honey,
And I’ve also got a wife.
People say that they’re depressed
But they go out and they’re so well dressed
Now, what is it that makes them feel that way?
Can’t get it in no drug store,
No man’s an island, that’s for sure
And it, looks like the world’s just
Run out of things to say, so now..

Give me some of the people’s drug.
G D Em
Give me some of the people’s drug.
Whatever makes you feel that good, [)])
F C D > C H O R U S
I’ll take it like I know I should, so )
Give me some of the people, people’s drug, wo-oah [)]/
Give me some of the people’s drug, drug /[/]

Pick me up and take me to a movie.
Give me an ending that I can understand.
Sell me a rocking soundtrack, make it groovy.
Give me backstage passes for the band.
People always whine, whine, whine,
Shut up and pay the fine, fine, fine.
What’s the difference anyway,
Between being safe and being rad
When the big joke is we’ve all been had?
You don’t get to read the news in USA Today. You know that!

… People’s Guitar!

God it’s a wacky race we’re running,
I must atone for all my sins.
God grant me some of what you’re giving,
I hope you don’t need needles, don’t need pins.
I’ll pay prescription – where’s the bill?
I thought it was a bitter pill! (Ha-Ha)
What’s it matter what I feel?
Take the dog and take the wife;
Show me how to lead a better life.
The price you people pay, well it’s gotta be a steal. All right

Give me some of the people’s drug.
Give me some of the people’s drug.
Whatever makes you feel that good,
I’ll take it like I know I should, so
Give me some of the people, people’s drug, wo-oah
Give me some of the people, people’s drug, wo-oah
Give me some of the people’s drug, drug, drug, drug. All right!

Notes:
~~~~~

1) The last line of every verse has the chord sequence Am G C D. You
may like to try adding a G to some of these (Am & C in particular)
using your little finger on the 3rd fret of the e-treble string.

2) Watch that rhythm. The strum rhythm changes a few times during the
verse. Learn it from the album.

3) If you’re new to barre chords (like F) keep practicing. You need to
be fairly swift in changing from F to C in this song. Sometimes,
depending on the song, you can get away with replacing F with D minor,
but I don’t think so here. If you have trouble try adjusting your
thumb and wrist positions. It’s easier barring on higher frets and
much easier on a small-necked guitar than a wide-necked one.

4) The chorus sounds fantastic with judicious use of harmony singing in
the chorus. I’ve recorded this song, then re-recorded tape-to-tape,
adding harmony and it added so much depth to the recording. Take a
lead from Wes himself, who sings the harmony part in the penultimate
line of the song.

Long Dead Gone by John Wesley Harding Ukulele Chords

This file contains two versions:- the first without chord fingering specified
and the second with it.

Version 1:

——————————————————————————

L O N G D E A D G O N E

by John Wesley Harding

from The Name Above The Title

(chord fingering not specified in this version)

Key: A major


It’s so easy to forgo
It’s so hard to forget
It’s so hard for to realize
That I’m not dead yet
When everything that we wanted
Is beyond beyond
And all that I hoped for is
Long dead gone – alright

So how can I sleep
In this memory bed
When I feel like a grave
With a tomb for a bed head
With your name and my name
Carved deep in the stone
Now faded away ’cause we’re
Long dead gone
Well we’re long dead gone
We’re long dead gone – yeah
Now faded away because we’re
Lo-ong dead gone


Love lies bewildered
Checking its pulse
To see if it compares
To anything else
And two things still beating
Never as one
And one thing lies choking ’cause it’s
Long dead gone
Well it’s long dead gone
It’s long dead gone – yeah
One thing lies choking ’cause it’s
Lo-ong dead gone

So here rests in pieces
Whatever it was
That we could admit to
F#major Bm
Whatever it was
That was me and you

What was me and you

What was me and you – yeah


So why won’t I just
Let it die and get rid
Of the truth that we would both
Would’ve rather kept hid
Better to live a lie
Than pretend that you’re not
And live out a love which is
Long dead gone
Well we’re long dead gone – yeah
Well we’re long dead gone – yeah
Don’t live out a love which is – yeah
Lo-ong dead gone
Never live out a love which is
Lo-ong dead gone
Never live out a love which is
Lo-ong dead gone – yeah

Chords
~~~~~~
As this version doesn’t specify which chord fingerings should be
used, I haven’t included a chord chart. If you want to know the
fingerings, see the other posting of this song with specified
chords. N.B. F#major is not written as F# purely to make it
clear that it isn’t F#m.

——————————————————————————

Notes
~~~~~
1. Learn the song by playing along to the album track.

2. Feel free to use different versions of the same chord or slighlty
different varieties of the same one to colour your music. For
example, I use a Dsus2 to link the D and Bm chords in the 4th line
of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th sections.

3. If you don’t want to use these linking chords (such as the Dsus2’s
all through this CRD, you needn’t).

4. If you’re new to barre chords, and would rather stick to open ones
you could transpose the tune to the key of G major, which involves
shifting all chords done by a tone:
This version: Transposed to G major:



C# & C#7 B7 should be okay
F#major Emajor (just plain E)
If you want to do this and have a capo, putting it on the 2nd fret
will get you in tune with the album track.

6. A big thankyou (THANKYOU) to Alan Pulliam for supplying the lyrics
to Long Dead Gone and Backing Out. They made my job a lot easier.

7. Very important this: Have Fun.

When it’s time for you to lie down,

When you’re sick of the sound, and the sight hurts your eyes,

Wrap up warm in a single bed,

Tie up the loose strings that are in your head,

When you’re feeling empty, dreams will fill you up

In the big sweet city.

G D Em Em7 Am Amsus2 ..(move on to C)
When it’s time for you to lie down,

Save a little room for me,

Save a little, save a little,

Save a little room for me.

Notes:
~~~~~~
1. The chords with dots after them are only played briefly as they are
transitional chords.

2. If you don’t know what I mean by the “Arabian” or “Dylanish” bits,
just play along to the album and find out which bits match which
chords. The rhythm with which the chord changes and vocals fit
together needs to be learnt by listening to the song (which is on
the album “The Name Above The Title” in case you didn’t know), and
the strumming rhythm, too, which is pretty consistent throughout.

3. You should soon get used to the main chord progression (as in the
“Dylanish bit”) and it will become second nature. What a fabulous
harmonic progression it is! You can spot a progression of notes
within the chords which matches the bassline (G F# E D C B A D G).

4. The chord shapes below are the ones I’d recommend. The Em7, Cmaj7
and Amsus2 chords should be fingered the same as the normal chord
of the same key except that the appropriate finger should be
removed.

5. Finally, the FADE OUT! Unless you’re recording it, you can’t fade
out, so either leave off the whole thing or do it (or something
similar) and improvise an ending. You should have the feel of the
song well enough by then to improvise something, but I wish I could
fade myself out gradually – that rhythm and chord progression just
seem to want to continue for ever, and to interupt the inexorable
flow just doesn’t seem quite right. (It’s so good I even come up
with long words for it).

The Person You Are by John Wesley Harding Ukulele Chords


T H E P E R S O N Y O U A R E

by John Wesley Harding

from the album “The Name Above The Title”

Key: G major
~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTRO: G D C D

[(D)] I put my forehead to the door
I heard the famous sound of infidelity
Looks like I’ve loved and lost once more
Oh, but all’s fair in love and war, supposedly
I couldn’t even burst in on you
See scrabbling sheets or your excuse
Give you the evil eye or verbal abuse

Why do you do what you do
C G |
When the things that you do |- PLAY & SING TWICE
C D |
Hurt the person you are? /

RIFF A: G D C D G D C D

[(D)] I slammed my glass down on the bar
My problems, they hit the floor so gracefully
I don’t know where I parked the car
That’s okay; tonight I’m on the town without me
Tonight it’s just me and my evil twin
The one who slips one more drink in
The one who slips away when I start sinking

Why do you do what you do
C G |
When the things that you do |- PLAY & SING TWICE
C D |
Hurt the person you are? /
They hurt the person you are
The person you are
The person you are
The person you are

RIFF B: G D C D G D C D

[(D)] Got a job to pay the rent
Put people out of work by repositioning
Now no-one’s sitting on the fence
Whose garden will we end up sitting in?
It’s getting much to hard to heal the sky
It stings too much to open up our eyes
To fundamental truths that we hold as lies

Why do you do what you do
C G |
When the things that you do |- PLAY & SING FOUR TIMES
C D |
Hurt the person you are? /
They hurt the person you are
The person you are
The person you are
The person you are
The person…………… person…………… person...... yeay.

1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . recording.

Notes:
`^’ means downstroke, `h’ means hammer-on.

In the 4th bar of this section, the 3rd beat and it’s half-beat can
either be played using the hammer-on to the treble note as shown above
(in which case the chord on the 3rd beat becomes Dsus2), which is one
of my personal favourite colourings, or the normal D fingering can be
retained, with a downstroke on the 3rd beat and an upstroke on the
following half-beat.

Don’t worry unduly about playing only those strings shown in the tabs
when doing downstrokes with your plectrum or thumb. In particular the
C chord strums are shown with the treble-E string not played, but this
isn’t always easy to get right, so don’t worry, be happy 🙂

A reasonably flexible but reasonably firm pick/plectrum is best if you
want to do this riff (IMHO).

G E N E R A L N O T E S
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. If you are playing solo, then the most important thing is to keep up
the rhythm and chords, so you can forget the lead guitar solo parts.
I like to use the last 4 bars of the OPTIONAL RHYTHM PART FOR RIFF A
as my intro, and obviously stick to the RIFF A after the first verse,
using it again after the second verse, where the recording has RIFF B.
In place of the OUTRO, I just strum the chords of the rhythm guitar
part, allowing the words (person… person… person… yeay) to hold
the flow of the ending, and then finish with a flourish.

2. As always, learn the rhythm of the song from the recording.

3. Enjoy!
