Fairport Convention - Mr Lacey tab

Fairport Convention - Mr. Lacey 
(Original by Ashley Hutchings)
(What we did on our Holidays - 1969)

Okay, this is where Rock and Roll meets Folk.
For the Rhythm Guitar you need the Basic Rockandroll-Riff:

        G                   C                 D
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------5--5--7--7--(...)--7--7--9--9--(...)-----------------|
A|---5--5--7--7--(...)--3--3--3--3--(...)--5--5--5--5--(...)-----------------|
E|---3--3--3--3--(...)-------------------------------------------------------|

G               C   G 
Please, Mr. Lacey, let me work your loving machine
C                  G              
Please, Mr. Lacey, let me work your loving machine
D (strum and stop)
Will you let me control the handles?
C (strum and stop)                          D/C/G/D
You know it's the best thing I've ever seen

Well, Mr. Lacey, where'd you learn just what to do?
Well, Mr. Lacey, where'd you learn just what to do?
Can you fix me up now with a teacher?
I wanna become an inventor too

Why, Mr. Lacey, why d'you do the things you do?
Why, Mr. Lacey, why d'you do the things you do?
It's true no one here understands now
But maybe someday they'll catch up with you



Solo (Intro):

      4x            
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|  keep on jammming along with the rhythm guitar
G|-----------------|  in this style. (I'm too lazy (mr. Lacey ;-)) to 
D|--------5--------|  figure out Richard Thompson's whole Solo.
A|--5--7-----------|  Since it's very slow, it should be easier to learn it 
E|-----------------|  directly by playing along with the song.
