Harlem Shakes – Strictly Game chords
Transcribed by: Evan King Email: emking522 --at-- gmail --dot-- com Pretty easy song if you just play the chords. This should be a good jumping-off point if you want to go all the way and figure out the picking pattern. I'm surprised this song hadn't been done already. Oh well. A great tune by a band we didn't get to hear enough of :( Intro: G (hold until Ooh-oh, you can hear it change) Am (G D Em 2x)G DUp from the basement to my best friend's farmEmWhere we'll work so hard, we can do no harmG DWe'll till the land and duck our debtsEmUnderneath soft sun, chewing NicoretteG D Em GThis will be a better yearD EmThis will be a better yearG DMake a little money, take a lot of shitEmFeel real bad, then get over itG D EmThis will be a better yearCOh I keep pushing bouldersGI stay game till sun'll shake my shouldersCOh, I keep feeling olderGI stay game, stay game, stay gameG DThe East Coast kids, man, we just don't knowEmSinging wait, wait, stop, drop me, go, go, goG DBut I'm taken by the hand to a blue pay phoneEmWe can break blue laws with our skin and bonesG DAnd now I'm back in the city, I'm counting frick frick frickEmHeard of milk great things, speaking soft and thickG DHe said, "If life gives you lemons, then thus god bade.EmSo put a little bit of bitter in your pink lemonade"C Cmaj7I'm sick of thee sheep, I'm sick of thou shepherdGSick of dressing like a human when I'm feeling like a leopardC Cmaj7I'm sick of slow rock, I'm sick of quick quipsG CSick of holding on to nothing when I just want to hold your hipsG D Em GThis will be a better yearD EmThis will be a better yearG DMake a little money, take a lot of shitEmFeel real bad, then get over itG D EmThis will be a better yearCOh I keep pushing bouldersGI stay game till sun'll shake my shouldersCOh, I keep feeling olderG AmI stay game, stay game, stay gameThen the nah-nahh part uses the C, Cmaj7, G pattern - you can work it outeasily if you listen to the song.
