The Holiday Song

intro:  c-d-b-c with high e drone

that little nifty melody line that begins each verse is : c b a g eg eg a /
                                                          c b a g eg e b c...
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pixies/holiday_song_crd.html ]
the chords for the verse go:
a              c         F     c       a      c           F      c
well sit right down my wicked son and let me tell you a story
a        c        F         c        a    F    c       F
about a boy who fell from glory and how he was a wicked son

g              F        a  c    F  c

this ain't no holiday       no, no
g             F
but it always turns out this way

d    f# g a g f#

here i am with my hands

i guess that pretty much sums it up; i would not want to desecrate any
one's interpretation of the other verse(s) or the solo by documenting
them here. oh yes, the chords at the end go A C F A instead of ACFC.

hey yinz,
i made a mistake, i think, in my notation of the holiday song.  in fact,

have read:
thanks for not all jumping down my throat immediately for my misguided
