Nanci (toad the wet spocket: dulcinea)               ** capo 4th fret **

intro: (2x)
F#        D#m                D
  I can't believe you    You bend your words
     E            F#                    A#
Like Uri Geller's spoons      Not quite safe here
B                        A#                B
When every judgment      Seems to smack of doom
        F# C# B          G#  G#__
Are you OK?     I'm just fine
G# A# B        A#       B      C#        F#
      You take Nanci    For me Loretta's fine

intro (1x)

F#        D#m                D
  A legal precedent    Could set us straight
    E                  F#                A#
But no one's brought up suit     And I'm assuming
     B                   A#                   B
That if they did     The point would still be mute
        F# C# B                G#    G#__
Are you joking?        I'm just fine
G# A# B        A#       B      C#        F#
      You take Nanci,   For me Loretta's fine
A         E          ?   G#
  No I've changed my mind
G# A# B         A#       B       C#        F#  F#
      I'll take Nanci,   For you Loretta's fine
E                           B
Still we walk without quite seeing things
E                                B
 And I'll admit there's not that much to see
B A#  1                 2
      And I will follow through
3               (4)C#
And expect that you will follow suit

intro (1x)

F#        D#m                 D
  I can't believe you     You bend your words
     E            F#                   A#
Like Uri Geller's spoons     Not quite safe here
B                       A#
When every judgment     Seems to smack of doom
        F# C# B            G#  G#__
Are you OK?       I'm just fine
G# A# B        A#       B      C#        F#
      You take Nanci,   For me Loretta's fine
A       E          ?   G#
No I've changed my mind
G# A# B         A#        B       C#        F#  F#
      I'll take Nanci,    For you Loretta's fine

     ** NOTE **

     This version augments the TAB work of Michael Hanson by giving a complete
     transcription of the song with the chords and fingerings notated from the
     capo (at the 4th fret) as opposed to the nut.  The chords are slightly
     different from Michael Smith's chord transcription, but the lyric is
     exactly the same.  My work was done independently, and is humbly submitted
     to improve on what is already in existence in this suberb archive.  Enjoy!

     This key to this song is getting the back-and-forth bass lines, and
     following the tempo (which I have done my best to designate).  I would
     recommend using a flat pick and -- in general -- let it ring!  Give a
     listen to the CD (which I would highly recommend if you don't already have
     it).  This will help with the vocal line as it changes from chromatic keys
     like G to F# and back -- really, this is what makes the song sound so cool.

     Have fun!  I welcome any comments or corrections:
