Buddy Holly
Don't Come Back Knocking (1955)
(Buddy Holly/Sue Parrish)

Now on: "Down the Line - Rarities [CD 1]"


This is what I could figure out. The chords are of course not always plain 
major chords, sometimes you have to add the 7 or 6. The solos are not 
exactly what Holly plays but it's at least close. I can't really make up my 
mind whether the guitar on the recording is finger-picked or not. In this 
case some notes add themselves naturally to the main line I tabbed below.

Even though there are some imperfections here and there, I'm especially 
dissatisfied with bar 10 of SOLO 1. I hear two notes played simultaneously 
there but I can't figure out how to play them. Must be some special 
Rockabilly voicing that I just don't know. Do you? Comments and corrections 
are highly welcome!

      F
Well, when you went away and left me all alone
F
While you played around, I waited at home
                Bb                              F
Don't come back knockin' at my heart's closed door
     C               Bb                      F
Or I won't be home, don't call and knock no more


    F
You had all my heart, was your very own
    F
You weren't satisfied, now I'll go on alone
                Bb                              F
Don't come back knockin' at my heart's closed door
     C               Bb                      F
Or I won't be home, don't call and knock no more
