Subject: CRD: Sign (5 Man Electrical Band)


"SIGN", recorded by Five Man Electrical Band.
This is from memory (and by ear)


(Intro: D Dsus2 D D Dsus2 D D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D)

           C          G                       D            G
  And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
     D                   A                    G                  A
  So I tucked my hair up under my hat, and I went in to ask him why
 Bm                        Bm/A                   Em (?)             G6/A (?)
  He said "You look like a fine, upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
        D                          A                G               A
  So I took off my hat and said "Imagine that! Heh, me workin' for you!"
           D        C             G
    Whoa, sign sign everywhere a sign
      D                          G
    Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
    D                  A                        C/G     D (+ intro suspensions)
    Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?
           C                 G                D                      G
  And the sign said anybody caught trespassin' would be shot out of sight
         D                         A
  So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house
       G                    A
  "Hey, what gives you the right?

  You put up a fence to keep me out but to keep Mother Nature in,

  If God was here he'd tell you to your face, "Man you're some kind of sinner!"

    (chorus)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/f/five_man_electrical_band/signs_crd.html ]
       A
  Now hey there mister can't you read?
       G                      D
  You gotta have a shirt and tie to get a seat
                            A
  You can't even watch, no you can't even
   G                    D
  You ain't supposed to be here........
   C             G                        D             G
  Sign said you got to have a membership card to get inside...Uhhh!

    (instrumental) (then slow)

           C          G                      D                   G
  And the sign said "Everybody welcome, come in, kneel down and pray"
                  D                               A
  But when they passed around the plate and they emptied it all
     G                      A
  I didn't have a penny to pay
       Bm                 Bm/A          Em                   G6/A
  So I got me a pen and a paper, and I made up my own little sign
            D                  A                      G               A
  I said "Thank you Lord for thinkin' about me, I'm alive and doin' fine!"

    (chorus)

>CHORUS
>D             C          G
>Signs, signs, everywhere signs
>D                       C      G
>Blockin' up the scenery, messin' my mind
>A                 G
>Do this, don't do that
>                   C
>Can't you read the signs

We sorted this out on rec.music.makers.guitar.tablature last term - I've got a
copy on my hard disk at home, so I'll bring it in over the weekend.

In the meantime, the chorus goes

 D             C          G
 Signs, signs, everywhere signs
 D                       C      G
 Blockin' up the scenery, messin' my mind
 D                A
