"Terrapin" by Syd Barrett, for the album "The Madcap Laughs"
Transcribed by Dave Fleming(dave@eng.umd.edu) 

	VERSE 1

E                      G
I really love you, and I mean you
E                   G       A
The star above you, crystal blue
      D           E                   A
Well, oh baby, my hair's on end about you

 	TRANSITION:  C G

	VERSE 2
I wouldn't see you, and I love to
I fly above you, yes I do
Well, oh baby, my hair's on end about you
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/syd_barrett/terrapin_crd.html ]
 	TRANSITION:  C G G# A

	BRIDGE (?)
A
Floating, bumping, noses dodge a tooth
A                        C G Bb E
The fins a luminous

A
Fangs all 'round the clown is dark
A
Below the boulders hiding
       C                   G  E
All the sunlight's good for us

	VERSE 3
Cause we're the fishes and all we do
The move about is all we do
Well, oh baby, my hair's on end about you

	SOLO 1 (Played over the verse chords, using the same kinds
                of transitions as shown above to lead in)

	REPEAT BRIDGE

	SOLO 2 (Played over the verse chords, using the same kinds
                of transitions as shown above to lead in)

	REPEAT VERSE 1

	END


Notes: I basically use all E and A shape barre chords for this, which
       makes it an easy and fun song to play.

       The lyrics listed for the bridge were provided by Graham Clarke
       (graham.clarke@canrem.com)

       Enjoy,
	dave
