Spring Heeled Jim

This is the second song off of -Vauxhall & I- and a pretty good one in my
opinion.  I play this song with a capo on the fourth fret.  The intro and
interlusions (if there is such a word) are this RIFF:

   F                         Am

G#-------------1-----------|-------------0-----------|D#-------1--------1--------|-------1--------1--------| B---2------2-------2----2-|---2------2-------2----2-|F#-3---3---------------3---|-----2---------------2---|C#-------------------------|-0-----------------------|G#-------------------------|-------------------------|
E Am Spring-Heeled Jim winks an eye C D Dsus4 He~ll do, he~ll never be done to E Am He takes on whoever flew through C D Well it~s the normal thing to do (ahhh) RIFF E Am Spring-Heeled Jim lives to love C D Dsus4 Now kissing with his mouth full E Am And his eyes on some other fool C D So many women, his head should be spinning (oh but no) RIFF E Am Spring-Heeled Jim slurs the words C D Dsus4 There is no need to be so knowing E Am Take life at five times your average speed C D Dsus4 Like I do E Am Until Jim feels the chill C D Dsus4 Oh where did all the time go E Am Once always in for the kill C Now it~s too cold D And he feels too old RIFF (ending instrumental played with verse chords) you may notice my deliberate use of Dsus4 chords and i justify that by telling you that if you listen to the album closely, it has such a feel for a Dsus4 chord. for poor people who cannot afford capoes, i can sympathize, so i will decode each chord into their correct names and their correct fingering, but having a capo makes it so much easier. (the cheapest capo costs only two dollars or maybe less). anyway: E A D G B E ----------- Capoed F = A 5 7 7 6 5 5 Capoed Am=C#m x 4 6 6 5 4 Capoed E = G# 4 6 6 5 4 4 Capoed C = E x 7 9 9 9 x Capoed D = F# x x 4 6 7 6 Capoed Dsus4=F#sus4 x x 4 6 7 7 (questions, comments, phillipics, email me) bye-bye
