Hats Off To The Zebras Chords

First off i couldnt believe how nobody before me has put this tab on the web.
Its an amazing song by an amazing artist.

This is only a simple chord progresssion and runs through out the whole song

havent been able to work out the slide in the intro but i will put it in when i know it.

The chords are

G         320033
Cmaj7     032033
D         000232
Em/Em7    022033  (you can play either, its just easiet to keep the fingers on the 3rd)


G  Cmaj7  G

add the slide after the G and kick out of the slide on the Cmaj7



G               Cmaj7
The horse, Is a noble Beast,
From the mustang from the west,
         Cmaj7           G
To the Stallion to the east.

        Cmaj7                    G
But the horse has a distant cousin,
     Cmaj7                G
It lives i do not know where,
         Cmaj7                G
But its message of racial harmony,
    Em/Em7               D    (hammer on 3rd fret on the 
when playing D)
Is one that we all can share.


      G        (Cmaj7 optianal)
Hats off to the zebra,
       Cmaj7       G
He is black and white,
Cmaj7        G                Em/Em7            D
He doesnt fight because there not very good at it.
[ Tab from: ]
      Cmaj7          G
In a world of confusion,
   Cmaj7        G
We all need a sign
     Cmaj7              G
If only we could live side by side,
           Em/Em7            D
like the stripes on a zebras spine.

Hat's off to the Zebras,

The humble badger,
Takes a sip of mornin' dew
But he's totally colour blind,
   Cmaj7           G
So he cant judge you.
      Cmaj7              G
But the badger is a dreamer
    Cmaj7           G
The badger has a plan
    Cmaj7           G          Em/Em7            D
He knows that his destiny is to help his fellow man.


N.C.            G
Hats of to the badgers,
          Cmaj7        G
They are black and white
     Cmaj7        G
and they dont fight,
            Em/Em7                 D
except for mating rights and territory.

   Cmaj7               G
Black man and a white man,
   Cmaj7             G
Both they need to shave,
   Cmaj7      G
United by the badger brush
     Em/Em7                 D
Hes helping from beyond the grave.
Hats off to the badger
            Cmaj7     G
What about the tapir
      Cmaj7       G
half zebra half pig-a
 Cmaj7      G
imagine the 'stig-ma
       Cmaj7            G
but the tapir stands proud
                Cmaj7   G
hats off to the tapir.

Cmaj7         G
Badgers and zebras,
  Cmaj7      G
Skunks.. Oh yeah,
    Cmaj7        G
And ring tailed lemurs
Cmaj      G
Living together
In harmony
              D (strum)
And if the.. Killer whales can do it,
   (repeat intro)
why cant we.

Thats it...
