Ok i'll give Fake Records of Rock 'n Roll a try. For the instrumental part do all barre chords and make them seventh chords if you want. it sounds good that way, but changing the C, C#, D to sevenths is kinda tricky, at least for me.


G
Get down boogie like never before
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
G
hold on tight and don't let go
C7                    D7
fake records of rock and roll
                                            C7
when the people walk into that record store
G
fake records of rock and roll

The people go shopping and they lay their money down
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
G
It sounds just like and the people donít know
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
                               C7
When they turn on that stereo
G
Fake records of rock and roll, look out!


Instrumental break: G, G#, A, Bb, B, Bb, A
                                 C, C#, D, D, C#, C, C, C#, D, D, C#, C, C, C#, D, G  




G
Got their money and they lay it down
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
G
Fork it over and they dig the sound
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
                                    C7                
They listen all day and they just donít know
G
Fake records of rock and roll, look out

(another instrumental break: see above)

C7                                                                G
Well it used to be youíd hear the rock and roll plays
        C7                                                                     D
But the people nowadays just turn their heads and walk away
Am7         D    Am7          D    Am7
Since the day the music died
G
Well it sounds just like **** to me
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
G
The ruin of history
C7                     D7
Fake records of rock and roll
                          C7
Cant even get down and boogie
G
Fake records of rock and roll, look out

(back to the instrumental, but only the first part, not the part that goes C, C#, D)
(he always says "look out" here on the last A)

Look out

Look out

Look out

I guess that nowadays they just don't know



I'm not sure about the last chord, but it sounds kind of like a B.

Bump.  It's a shame to see things so slow around here when I know Daniel has more fans than ever.  This thread had slipped to page three so I'm hoping the bump to page one might help.

I contributed a bunch of chords and tabs in the past but with a new baby I just haven't had the time.  I agree with Jeff - it needs to come back to life. I'm sure many are still watching the message board, but few are posting. I believe March had only 1 post!  I'll try to get some new chord charts in the future.  If there are any requests for chords I'd be happy to try and post them soon.

I took a little break from DJ - now I'm just beginning to listen again.  It's been refreshing.  Been really enjoying the later albums recently - Rejected Unknown and Lost and Found in particular.

Congratulations on the baby, Zach. 

Thanks largely to your contributions, I think this is the most important thread in the history of the message board so on behalf of everyone who has ever learned a song with the help of this thread, thank YOU.

Thanks!  I love this - the baby's digging it too....
Daniel occasionally plays A7 and D7 instead of regular A and D

A7
A   D    E7
She invited me to a pity party
Every hour everyone was making fun of me
I told her it really didnít matter
You canít imagine what itís done to my personality
C    F    G7
I donít know where she should go, but I lose
Though I tried, like a lullaby, I lose
A    D    E7
Once I saw her in a crazy dream
She was laughing, I looked the other way
Then I find that she unwinds, she puts me down behind my back
Everyone seems to have a love but me, itís what I lack
C    F    G7
Iíve been denied the hurt inside, I lose
Though she was barely a friend of mine, I lose
I got left out of the ďinĒ crowd
They speak as if I was there
They say the cruelest things, I seen their type
A bunch of buttwipes that rule
C   F   G7
Donít make sense, itís really strange, I lose
Though I try, thereís no sense giving up, I lose
I walk the second mile, thereís no one there, I lose
I pick up the pieces of my broken dream, I lose
Everyone had their fun, I lose
A   D   E7
Yet she was a one of them from the beginning
How am I to carry on, thereís no help given
Then I realize itís all reoccurrence
What theyíre thinking, their mind is a blur
C    F   G7
I seen the future, and I ainít even there, I lose
I see it all, and itís really, the same old thing, I lose
They think theyíre smart, all huddled together, I lose
One more time, I try to make it, I lose
A7   D7   E7
I lose, I lose
Tell me about it, darliní, now

Does anyone have the music for "It's Over" (Continued Story)? I've scoured the internet and come up empty-handed.

This thread is amazing to read through, BTW. I wish I had a fraction of your folks's ability.

... Well, maybe someday.

In the meantime, here's a minor contribution from me. I took the detailed notes on "Walking the Cow" by zack26 and turned it into bonafide sheet music. You can download it here:

http://www.muppetlabs.com/~breadbox/music/Daniel_Johnston-Walking_the_Cow.pdf

There's nothing important in there that isn't already in zack26's original notes, but as a piano player I find it much easier to follow in this form. Maybe someone else here will as well.

I did my best to follow zack's instructions, but I have to admit to having a tin ear, so there may still be some minor mistake in there. I would welcome corrections. (The sheet music was created using a program called GNU LilyPond, so it's generally very easy to make changes.)

Enjoy, and thanks to zack26 and everyone else for sharing in this thread.
