The Beatles - Matcchbox bass bass tabs ver. 1

--------------------------------------------------------------------- THE BEATLES - MATCHBOX (C. Perkins) First released as an E.P. along with LONG TALL SALLY, SLOW DOWN and I CALL YOUR NAME on June, 19th 1964. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Bass tab by:PJVillanueva Many people thought this Carl Perkins cover was but one of those songs they let Ringo sing to please fans and that it was also rather poorly produced, but I think that its smooth rocking feel, specially during the solo, and that real funny original "little dog" verse are enough to make it a great number. Maybe Perkins vocal part is better than that of Ringo but I think he does a good job too, not being a born singer, and Paul's walking bass and George's guitar are really good. Whatever critics may say, I think those four lads knew how to rock in a way that few bands ever did or will. I said I'm sitting here watching Matchbox hole in my clothes I said I'm sitting here wondering Matchbox hole in my clothes I ain't got no matches, But I sure got a long way to go I'm an old poor boy I'm a long way from home I'm an old poor boy And I'm a long way from home I've never been happy 'cause everything I ever did was wrong Well, if you don't want my peaches, Honey, please, don't shake my tree If you don't want any of those peaches,honey, Please don't mess around my tree I've got news for you baby Leave me here in misery, all right! Well let me be your little dog Till your big dog comes Let me be your little dog Till your big dog comes And when your big dog gets here Watch how your puppy dog runs Well I said I'm sitting here watching Matchbox hole in my clothes I said I'm sitting here wondering Matchbox hole in my clothes I ain't got no matches, But I sure got a long way to go 12/8 GUITAR INTRO x x G|------ ------ ------ ------|------ ------ ------ ------| D|---------------------------|---------------------------| A|---------------------------|---------------------------| E|---------------------------|---------------------------| G|------ ------ ------ ------|------ ------ ------ ------| D|--------------2----------2-|--------------2------------| A|0------4----------0--4-----|0------4----------0--4-----| E|---------------------------|---------------------------| I said I'm 00:06 G|------ ------ ------ ------|------ ------ ------ ------| D|--------------2----------2-|--------------2----------2-| A|0------4-------------4-----|0------4----------0--4-----| E|---------------------------|---------------------------| sittin' watchin' Matchbox hole my here in G|------ ------ ------ ------|------ ------ ------ ------| D|--------------2----------2-|--------------2----------2-| A|0------4----------0--4-----|0------4-------------4-----| E|---------------------------|---------------------------| clothes.
