Runnin Blue Chords

   
The Doors
"Runnin' Blue"
 THE SOFT PARADE
 By: Dave

This is how I play RUNNIN' BLUE on guitar by The Doors. This was done completely by ear.

Poor Otis dead and gone
Left me here to sing his song
Pretty little girl with a red dress on
Poor Otis dead and gone


RIFF 1:                PLAY THIS AFTER RIFF 1:
(0:11)                 Am    G
E---------------------|-------3---------
B---------------------|-1--x--3---------
G-7^(9)--5-------5----|-2--x--0---------
D----------7p5-----7--|-2--x--0---------
A--------------5------|-0--x--2---------
E---------------------|-------3---------

VERSE:

RIFF 1
Well back down turn around slowly
Am     G
Try it again
Bm          A
Rememberin' when
C
It was easy 
Bm         A
Try it again
C
Much too easy
Bm          A
Rememberin' when

CHORUS: 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/doors/runnin_blue_crd.html ]
D  A      E7         A
Al-right, look at my shoes
D   A     E7          A
Not quite the walkin' blues
D     A     E7          A
Don't fight too much to lose
D     A         E7
Can't fight the runnin' blues

VERSE(same pattern, different lyrics)

POST VERSE:
