Neil Young - Ambulence Blues chords

First Tab Ever!! but trust me it sounds good.

Standard Tuning, Capo 3rd

When playing the first G of each verse, start at low E and go up the strings, and 
hammer-on the third fret up (from the capo) on the B string.

When switching to C, hammer-on the same fret on the B string to make it sound good.  
Just listen to the song to get a feel for what it sounds like.

Intro:  G C Em A

G CBack in the old folky days
Em AThe air was magic when we played
G CThe riverboat was rockin' in the rain
Em AMidnight was the time for the raid
DOh, Isabela, proud Isabela
EmThey tore you down and plowed you under
F#m GYou're only real with your make-up on
D AHow could I see you and stay too long
G CAll along the Navajo Trail
Em ABurn-outs stub their toes on garbage pails.
G CWaitresses are cryin' in the rain
Em AWill their boyfriends pass this way again
DOh, Mother Goose, she's on the skids
EmSure ain't happy, neither are the kids
F#m GShe needs someone that she can scream at
D AAnd I'm such a heel for makin' her feel so bad
G CI guess I'll call it sickness gone
Em AIt's hard to say the meaning of this song
G CAn ambulance can only go so fast
Em AIt's easy to get buried in the past
G C Em AWhen you try to make a good thing last
Harmonica Solo: D G D G Em (x3)
DI saw today in the entertainment section
EmThere's room at the top for private detection
F#m GTo Mom and Dad this just doesn't matter
D ABut it's either that or pay off the kidnapper
G CSo all you critics sit alone
Em AYou're no better than me for what you've shown
G CWith your stomach pump and your hook and ladder dreams
Em AWe could get together for some scenes
Harmonica Solo: D G D G Em (x3)
DWell, I'm up in T.O. keepin' jive alive
EmAnd out on the corner it's half past five
F#m GBut the subways are empty, and so are the cafes
DExcept for the Farmer's Market
AAnd I still can hear him say
G CYou're all just pissin' in the wind
Em AYou don't know it but you are
G CAnd there ain't nothin' like a friend
Em AWho can tell you you're just pissin' in the wind
Harmonica Solo: D G D G Em (x3)
DI never knew a man could tell so many lies
EmHe had a different story for every set of eyes
F#m GHow can he remember who he's talking to
D ACause I know it ain't me, and hope it isn't you
Outro: G C Em A G C Em A D ----Long Live Neil Young----
