I know Dan didn't write it but could you do "A Little Bit of Soap"?  I can't find tabs for that song anywhere.

A Little Bit Of Soap
(by Bert  Berns)

This song is in the key of B on the recording, but I'm guessing that he played it in C, and that there was a tape speed problem somewhere along the way. If you want to play along with the recording in B, substitute these chords:
Play B and B7 instead of C and C7
Play E instead of F
Play F# instead of G
Play C#7 instead of D7

The C7 chord after the word soap is really just a single note Bb, but the full chord works just fine too (or A if youre playing the version in B)

C C7
A little bit of soap
F G
Will wash away your lipstick
C
On my face
C7
But a little bit of soap
F D7 G
Will never, never erase
C
The pain in my heart
C7
And my eyes
F
As I go through the lonely years
C
A little bit of soap
G C
Will never wash away my tears


C C7
A little bit of soap
F G
Will wash away your powder
C
from my chin
C7
But a little bit of soap
F D7 G
Will never, never begin
C C7
To take away the hurt that I feel
F
As I go through the lonely year
C
A little bit of soap
G C
Will never wash away my tears


C
Have you heard
F
When love begins to die
G G7
It leaves someone to cry
C
Night and day

Like a bird
F
You left the robin's nest
G
And just like all the rest
C
You flew away


C7
A little bit of soap
F G
Will take away your perfume
C
Eventually
C7
A little bit of soap
F D7 G
Will never wash away the memory
C C7
Of your name in the night
F
That Ill call through the lonely years
C
A little bit of soap
G C
Will never wash away my tears

Zack, your tabs and chords rock and i really appreciate all your effort. I have a few requests, don't feel obliged to do all of them, I just wanted to broaden my chances of picking a song you would want to tab.

Any of the following on guitar:
Poptunes
Joy Without Pleasure
Wild West Virginia
I'm the Phantom of my own Opera

Joy Without Pleasure

G D C G Em Am C D G
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |

G D C G
When I was a little kid
Em Am C D G
And all the people they looked big
G D C G
I never exactly understood
Em Am C D G
How to tell the trees from the wood
 
D C G Em Am C D G
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |

D C G
Joy without pleasure
Em Am C D G
Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all
Joy without pleasure
Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all
 
My mama she took me aside one day
She said you better have fun while you play
'Cause someday you'll wake up and you'll be old
And all of your youth will be gone away
And you work in a factory and you earn your pay
And your fingers will rot and your mind will decay
You'll be happy, so happy with your family and house
But you'll never, you'll never enjoy yourself
 
Joy without pleasure
Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all
Joy without Pleasure
Ain't no fun, ain't no fun at all
 
The Son of Charles Dickens and a little red hen
Danced the watusi like it was a sin
They tried to enjoy it but they feel so guilty
Guilt won't allow you to enjoy a stolen apple
 
Joy without pleasure
Ain't no fun, ain't no fun
Joy without pleasure
Ain't no fun
Joy without pleasure
Ain't no fun
(last chord is G7)

That song was about premarital sex

Wild West Virginia

The little melody on the F chord is f-e-d-e with the last e landing on the C chord
I'm not sure abot the "Get the shivering" lyric...

G
Im going back to the place
F C
That I used to call home
G
Im going back to the place
F C
Where the antelope never roam

Bb F
Wild West Virginia
C G
Home of the nave
Bb F
This boy be mighty pleased
G
To see them rolling hills
F G
Rolling hills

No I dont like John Denver
But I always will remember those rolling hills
You got a backwoods woman
Underprivileged mama, farmer in the dell
Crooked politicians
Crater bum roads
But oh I love it so
Those rolling hills (Wild West Virginia)
Rolling hills (Wild West Virginia)

Get the shivering bout how the river
In the cold winter
When a snowflake falls on your face
You feel just like an iceberg
But I wouldnt trade it
For the sticky hot weather in Texas
Im gonna make an exodus
To them rolling hills (Wild West Virginia)
Rolling hills (Wild West Virginia)

I get this wheeling feeling
Singing like Slim Whitman
Oh how I wanna go home
Away from them big city slickers
Skinny intellectuals and them tall buildings
Back to wild West Virginia
Home of the nave
This boy be mighty pleased
To see them rolling hills (Wild West Virginia)
Rolling hills

Bb F
God is an artist
C G
And he painted a pretty picture
Bb F
And he called it West Virginia
G
With the rolling hills
F G
Rolling hills
F G (etc.)
Rolling hills
(Wild West Virginia)
(Wild West Virginia)

I'm the Phantom of my own Opera


Phantom of My Own Opera

For the piano part, the C augmented (C+) chord has a C in the left hand bass and in the right hand is e-g#-c
For guitar there are several choices for C+:
X-3-2-1-1-0 (easy to get to from a C chord), X-X-6-5-5-4
Or if you want the G# bass note try 4-3-2-1-1-X (a bit of a stretch)

C C+ F D7
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
C G C G
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |

C C+
I'm the phantom of my own opera
F D7
Oh don't I know it
C G C G
And I think of you, sweetheart

I'm lurking in the shadows
of my memory
We were going to have a circus in the bar

But the creature lurks among us
The ghost of our past
The gho-o-ost of our love

G C
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
F C G (g a b bass notes)
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |

G
And if I had my own way
C
I always say that phrase
F C
I thought it was a phase
G
But it wasn't

(verse chords)
And so here I am
In my baggy clown costume
Perform any funny trick and throw a kiss
to the audience

And I'm wearing a mask
But you don't have to ask
Who I'm thinking about

And there's a monkey in the background
Hung by a rope from the ceiling
And I'm the villain, acting fierce
And stretching whiskers toothsomely

(bridge chords)
The phantom wears a black coat
Long trousers and a derby
Stands erect and cracks the whip loudly

(verse chords)
I'm the phantom of my own opera
I perform all the parts
And I think of you, sweetheart

I'm even the audience
And I can't help thinking
We were going to have a circus in the bar

Can't pull the curtain
I can't help remembering
Turn a somersault after singing a verse

And the song is never ending
And I never quit rehearsing
A performance of a sad and twisted heart

(bridge chords)
And if I had my own way
I don't know what I'd do
Id probably wish it was you

Poptunes


Sometimes he plays an Ab minor chord instead of Ab major. I hear Ab minor on the first two verses and Ab major on the last two.

Eb Bb7
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
Eb Bb7
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
Cm Ab(m) Eb Bb7 (free time)
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |

Eb
Monkey middle with a fiddle
Bb7
And a real tight ragtime band
Eb
Calls and plays of fame and fortune
Bb7
Heard so loud across the land
Cm Ab(m)
And those little people buy those records
Eb Bb7
Sit lonely in their homes

With funny faces falling into the great unknown

They got little polka-dot undies
And you know they have their fun
They got matching ties and curtains
And they get their washing done
But come evening comes that feeling
When they lay their burden down
When they put that record on

The house is jumping with excitement
Everyones acting out of character
But everything goes back to normal
A half an hour later
And everyone acts like nothing happened
As that record goes back in the sleeve
Thats one house guest thatll never leave

Monkey middle with a fiddle
And a real tight ragtime band
Calls and plays of fame and fortune
Heard so loud across the land
And those little people buy those records
Sit lonely in their homes
With funny faces falling into the great unknown


Eb isn't the friendliest guitar key. Here's a version in D that's much easier.

D A7
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
D A7
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
Bm G(m) D A7 (free time)
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |

Walking the Cow

This is the long-winded overly-anal version - but I feel it's a song worth getting right. I have a couple of different guitar versions I'll be posting in the near future. This one attempts to get as close to the original as possible. Email me with any questions about this one.

This songs sounds in C# on Hi, HowAreYou but Im 99.9% certain he played it in C and its just another one of those tape speed things. On Frankenstein Love he plays it in C as well.

Piano Chords (I tried to get a close to DJs voicings as possible)
LH = left hand; RH = right hand; notes in chords are listed low to high

C   LH: c/g; RH: c/e/g
C6   LH: c/a; RH: c/e/a
F   LH: f/c; RH: f/a/c
F6   LH: f/d; RH: f/a/d
FM7   LH: f/c; RH: f/a/c/e
Dm   LH: d/a; RH: d/f/a
Dm7   LH: d/a; RH: d/f/a/c
Am   LH: a; RH: c/e/a
Em   LH: e; RH: b/e/g
G   LH: g/d; RH: g/b/d

Most all chords are played in eighth notes.

The lucky stars rhythm is played by breaking up the three note chords in the right hand into 1 lower note and two upper notes. For instance, the C6 chord on the word eyes has c/e/a in the right hand. Instead of just playing those three notes together, break up the chord into c (thumb) and e/a. The C chord would be divided in the same way: c and e/g. The organ lick goes

| 1 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 2 + 3 + 4 + |
RH: e/a c e/a c e/a c e/g c e/g c e/g c
LH: c/a-------------------------- c/g-------------------------------

etc.

I am a Baby (In My Universe) would be good, I don't play piano though and it seems tricky to do on guitar, maybe I'm just not getting it.  oh well thanks
