Hello all you Stray Cats fans! Here are the chords and some tabs
for one of their catchiest tunes, Gina, from the Blast Off album.
I've also included the guitar parts (the intro and the middle-part)
in tablature. I'm pretty sure they all are right. If you have any
comments and/or corrections then feel free to mail me at:
Juhani.Laakso@uwasa.fi

Enjoy!
Juhani


Gina by Stray Cats from the album Blast Off.
(originally written by the Paine Brothers)
Transcribed by Juhani Laakso.


Guitar intro:

For the simple solution, just play D E A four times.
To make it more interesting, play the riff:

  	   D	     E   A	 D	   E   A
e -----------------------------------------------------------|
B -----------------------------------------------------------|
G -----------------------------------------------------------|
D -2-------0-0-0-0---------------0-0-0-0---------------------|
A ---0-2-4---------4-2---0-0-2-4---------4-2---0-0-2-4-------|
E ---------------------4---------------------4---------------|

   D	     E	 A	 D         E   A
e ------------------------------------------|
B ------------------------------------------|
G ------------------------------------------|
D -0-0-0-0---------------0-0-0-0------------|
A ---------4-2---0-0-2-4---------4-2-2-0----|
E -------------4----------------------------|


1. & 2. verse:

  	      D		     E	      A
Well they say Gina don't you run with him
  	    D		     E	       A
Because you know the trouble I've been in
   D		  E	  F#m
Oh that was yesterday, oh listen when they say
D		E	 A
Gina, don't you run with him


   	      D           E      A
Well they say Gina, I'm a bad mistake
  	       D		E	A
But that's the chance you gonna have to take
  	 D	       E      F#m
Well I'm begging on my knees, begging darling please
   D		   E	    A
Oh Gina, don't you run with him


Chorus (play arpeggio-style, except the last two rows):

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stray_cats/gina_tab_ver_2.html ]
     Bm		    E
Well Gina, you're a young girl
      Bm			 E
But I think you're old enough to decide
Bm	         E
They think we're foolin'
    D 			       E
But I can see the love in your eyes
   D		   E	    A
Oh Gina, don't you run with him

Hey!


Guitar break:

The simple way: play D E A twice and D E F#m once.

Chorus (arpeggio-style):

     Bm             E
Well Gina, you're a young girl
      Bm                         E
But I think you're old enough to decide    (to sigh?)
Bm               E
They think we're foolin'
    D			       E
But I can see the love in your eyes
(non-arpeggio:)
No! (No) No! (No!)

Listen when they say it baby


3. verse:

D               E        A
Gina, don't you run with him
            D                E         A
Because you know the trouble I've been in
   D              E       F#m
Oh that was yesterday, oh listen when they say
D               E        A
Gina, don't you run with him
              D               E        A
Well they say Gina, don't you run with him
D               E        A
Gina, don't you run with him
              D               E        A
Well they say Gina, don't you run with him

Hey!


The ending of the song:
Play the guitar intro at the same time as you sing this line
(listen to the record and you'll know how to time it right):

 	                           D               E        A
*(Don't listen baby) Well they say Gina, don't you run with him

*play this 7 times


The guitar-part in the last line is just slightly different over
the last two chords, try to find it out yourself, it's very easy.

 		    D	            E	     F#m
(Don't listen baby) Gina, don't you run with him

Listen to the record and play with it! That is the easiest
way to get the timing and the other things right.
