Subject: TAB: Rory Gallagher - In your town

Hi Rory Fans,
since I use to take a look at the netnews, there's never been a Rory
Gallagher TAB. So I tried to work out one myself. It's my first
TAB-posting, so feel free to make suggestions.
This TAB contains the intro and the main riffs. I think, it's senseless to
tab the whole song exactly, because Rory usually does a lot of tricking and
spontanous improvisation, especially during this song. Listen to the
recordings, e.g. on Deuce and Live in Europe.
So that's the way you should play this song. Take this material as basic
and variate it. If requested, I could try to work out the solo, too.
So have fun...
Dirk


RORY GALLAGHER: IN YOUR TOWN

Rory uses a Fender Tele tuned to Open-E: E H E G# H E (low to high) and
a capo on the third fret. I noted the the frets up from the capo to mark
the open played strings.
Be careful with the picking. Rory holds the plectrum between his thumb
and the 1st finger and addidionally picks the upper strings with his 2nd
and 3rd finger.
The slide he mostly puts on the 3rd finger.

The Intro:

      look out baby,               your man is back in town [...]


For the instrumental bridge after "so look out..." try this pattern:

!-----4------4------4------4-!-----5------5------5-------5-!

look out baby, your man is back in town
look out baby, I won't stand no messin'`round

the first man I wanna see is the Chief Police
bring that man right over here
I wanna speak (?) my peace
I wanna cause no trouble, no fuzz, no fight
but you look out man, you know this is saturday night

the second man I wanna see is the old fire chief
bring that man right over here
stand him right in front of me
I wanna cause no trouble, no fuzz, no fight
see this match, I might set this place alight
so look out...

the third man I wanna see is the old D.A.
he was the man who sent me away
twenty two years, twenty three days, twenty four minutes
I was locked away

you come along baby, ask me where I've been
up-the-river-holiday (??), up in Sing Sing
one cold floor, four bare walls
that's all they gave me, nothing else at all
Sing Sing, Sing Sing, Sing Sing
when I came out I could not feel a thing...

now I'm back in your town
in your town, in your town, in your town...
