Subject: Hammond Song by The Roches

Hammond Song
Performed by the Roches on their Self Titled Album
(Words & Music by Margaret A. Roche)

(Song starts in E flat.
Capo third fret and play as if in C.
Cuz who likes to play in E flat?  Not me.)

Chord 1 is C with the second finger off
Chord 2 is C with the second finger hammering on
Chord 3 is F with the second finger off
Chord 4 is F with the second finger hammering on

(Intro)
1  2    1  2
1  2    1  2

   1              2      1  2
If you go down to Hammond
       F          C      1  2
you'll never come back
F      3           4  3
In my opinion you're
C            1      2    C
on the wrong track
F            3            4
We'll always love you but
3          4         C  1   2
that's not the point

G       F        am
ooo  oooo        ooooooo

1   2     1    2

   1            2         1   2
If you go with that fella
    F        C   1   2
forget about us
F         3        4 3
As far as I'm concerned
C
that would be just
F            3        4
throwing yourself away
F          C   1  2
not even trying
G       F      am       1  2   1  2
Come on you're lying to me
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/roches/hammond_song_crd.html ]
(Then there's the interlude with the Robert
Fripp guitar solo. The chords under it sound like this:)

am(with first finger off)
am(with first finger on)
am(with first finger off)
am(with first finger on)
C             1  2

(Then the song modulates up to B flat.
Play as if in G cuz who likes to play in B flat?
Not me)
Chord 5 is G with the second finger off
Chord 6 is G with the second finger hammering on

5  6  5  6

     5              6      5  6
Well I went down to Hammond
  C        G      C   G
I did as I pleased
C           1      2  1
I ain't the only one
      G         5    6
who's got this disease
C             1            2
Why don't you face the fact
        G     5   6
you old upstart
D  C        em
We fall apart

   1            2        1  2  F  C  1  2
If you go with that fella
F          3          4  3
You'd be okay if you'd
             C     1  2
just stay in school
G     F3F   am  1  2  1  2
Don't be a fool

   1                 2     1  2
Do your eyes have an answer
   F            C    1  2
to this song of mine
F         3        4 3
They say we meet again
C             1  2
on down the line
F           3           4  3
Where is on down the line
          1  2  1  2
how far away?
G       F     am 1  2  1  2  1  2  1  2
Tell me I'm okay

   1              2      1   2
If you go down to Hammond
       F          C    1  2  1  2  1  2  1  C
you'll never come back
