guitar chord transcription by Gary Hobish (with thanks to Larry Hernandez for typing out the lyrics!)


The chords should line up so that they are above the appropriate lyric. If they do not line up properly, it's probably because you need to set your browser's "Fixed Font" to Courier or Monaco. Any other problems? Please e-mail me and let me know what type of browser you are using and what platform you are running on.

Stay tuned- there will be many more transcriptions coming in the near future! If you have a specific NRBQ song request, type out the lyrics and send them to me.
