Lucille Has Messed My Mind Up

(Jeff Simmons and Frank Zappa)

I must admit (almost sacrilegious), that I don’t really like the reggae version on Joe’s 
Garage Part one, and think it could have been reworked, so this arrangement is more in 
the nature of a “normal” ballad.

I express my indebtedness to Version 1

Possibly there should be a chick flick video made about why Joe should have stayed with 
his previous girlfriend Mary?

I like to increase the “power ballad” quotient by slightly changing the chords (see at 
the bottom of the tab).

G   C   Am    Dm                   G
Lu ooh ooh   cille has messed my mind up
                 Am
But I still love her Oh I still love her
G   C   Am    Dm                   G
Lu ooh ooh   cille has messed my mind up
            Am
But I still love her Oh I still love her
G   C   Am    Dm                   G
Lu ooh ooh   cille has messed my mind up
            Am
But I still need her You know I need her

Em                                Dm
What are you trying to do to me Lucille?
Em                                Dm

G   C   Am    Dm            G

Em                                     Dm
She treats me like my heart is made of stone
Em                                     Dm
She runs around and leaves me home all alone
Em                                        Dm
She doesn't answer when I call her on the phone
G                         G7
She messed up my mind & I'm crying all of the time

G   C   Am    Dm                   G
Lu ooh ooh   cille has messed my mind up
                 Am
But I still love her Oh I still love her

and so on

And so on

I haven’t carefully tracked the guitar parts so treat this as an arrangement rather than 
an attempt to perfectly tab the record.
