Donovan Jabberwocky chords
Highlighted Show chord diagrams
I made this because I think the other version is all weird and doesn't sound right, except for maybe the tabs. But I came here looking for chords, so apart from complaining, this is my interpretation. Correct me if I'm wrong! I strum along to the words, and just play a bit with up- and downstrokes. Listen to the song a bit and you'll find that this is generally where the chords are at. These Chords are basically the same troughout the whole song. Dm C Dm 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves A# A G F Did gyre and gimble in the wabe. Dm C Dm All mimsey were the borogroves A# A And the mome raths outgrabe. Dm C Dm "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! A# A G F The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Dm C Dm Beware the Jubjubb bird, and shun A# A The frumious Bandersnatch!" Dm C Dm He took his vorpal sword in hand: A# A G F Long time the manxome foe he sought Dm C Dm So rested he by the Tumtum tree, A# A And stood awhile in thought. Dm C Dm And as in uffish thought he stood, A# A G F The Jabberwock with eyes if flame Dm C Dm Came whiffling through the tulgeywood A# A And burbled as it came. Dm C Dm One, two! One, two! And through and through A# A G F The vorpal blade went sniker-snack! Dm C Dm He left it dead, and with its head A# A He went galumphing back. Dm C Dm "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? A# A G F Come to my arms, my beamish boy! Dm C Dm O frabjous day! Callooy, callay!" A# A He chortled in his joy. Dm C Dm 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves A# A G F Did gyre and gimble in the wabe. Dm C Dm All mimsey were the borogroves A# A And the mome raths outgrabe.
