You Can Leave Your Hat On, Interpretation
=========================================

Artist....: Joe Cocker
Title.....: You Can Leave Your Hat On
Author....: Frank Gro▀gasteiger
            http://www.dregenrocks.de
Version...: 4th October 2006

Comment...: While searching for this song on the web, I found some real crap
and some medium crap, but nothing really satisfying, so here is my premium
interpretation of this song. Nevertheless I thought about tranposing this song
into E-Minor for a possible Metal-Version of this cool song, but for now the
original way should be quite enough. :-)

Use chord-variations on your own.

Song Key..: C-Minor


[INTRO]
(Nice lick over Eb, also using during the Bridge near the end of the song.
Try to play it quite smoothly, maybe using hammer-on's.)


This one 3 times:                Then this one quickly played:

B  ----------------------        ----------------|
G  ----------------------        ----------------|
D  ------1-------1-------        ----------------|
A  1--3-------3-------3--        ----1-----------|
E  ----------------------        1-3-------------|


[VERSE]
(Use this lick while Cm is played. Or hand this over to your bass.)
e ----------------------|
B ----------------------|
G ----------------------|
D -----2--1--2----------|
A 3----------------0-3--|
E --------------3-------|

Baby take off your coat / real slow
