C'MON BILLY

by Polly Jean Harvey
Performed by PJ Harvey
from "To Bring You My Love" LP
Chords written out by David Heggie

Firstly, the song itself is fairly easy to play chord-wise -
there's no hard chords in it at all.  There's a fair amount of
muting of the strings, very like in her other song on the same
album, "Send His Love To Me". No amount of describing would tell
you how to play this - just listen to the record and play along -
 you'll get the hang of it.

The chords used & how to play them are :

Am C Dm Em e:---0-----0----1-----0----- Notice how she plays the Am chordB:---1-----1----3-----0----- it's played this way (hammering onG:---0h2---0----2-----0----- the E and A notes) throughout theD:---0h2---2----0-----2----- verses. Again, to make itA:---0-----3----0-----2----- clearer, listen to the record.E:---0----(3)---x-----0-----
Here's how they fit into the Verse and Chorus : [VERSE] Am C Am C C'mon Billy, Come to me Am C Dm C Dm C Am You know I'm waiting, I'll love you endlessly. Am C Am C C'mon Billy, you're the only one, Am C Dm C Dm C Am Don't you think it's time now you met your on-ly son ? Am C Am C I remember our lovers' play Am C Dm C Dm C Am The corn was golden, we lay in it for days Am C Am C I remember the things you said Am C Dm C Dm C Dm My little Billy, come to your lo-ver's bed [CHORUS] Dm Am Come home, is my plea Em Am Your home now is here with me Dm Am Come home to your son Em Tomorrow might never come [VERSE] C'mon Billy, you look good to me How many nights now your child inside ohh - v.unsure about this! Don't forget me, I had your son Damn thing went crazy, but I swear you're the only one [INSTRUMENTAL] for rest of verse Then just repeat : Am C Am C Come along Billy, Come to Me Until the end of the song. Easy-Peasy.  ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, | David Heggie, SCOT, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh | | EMail: HeggieD@scot.hw.ac.uk OR texdh@bonaly.hw.ac.uk | ''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' From: JGresik@aol.com Date: Tue, 19 Dec 1995 23:09:01 -0500 PJ HARVEY: "C'MON BILLY" (Polly Jean Harvey) from the album To Bring You My Love (Don't strum all the strings on the following chords although on some strokes you will need to.
