From: Benjamin Reed

Subject: CRD r/rolling_stones/torn_and_frayed.crd


written by Jagger-Richards, From the album `Exile on Main Street`


Transcribed by Benjamin Reed.


Its played as normal chords rather than barre chords and the `d`

chords will often have a `sus4` or is played with 2 fingers

(ignoring the finger placement on the e string-i think its called

an add2)but more often than not it is just a straight `d`


d, a, e, d

a g d

hey let them follow you down

d a e d

way undergound, wind and he`s bound

a g d

bound to follow you down

d a e d

just a deadbeat, right off the street

a g d

bound to follow you down



a g d

though ball rooms and smelly bordellos

a g d

and dressing rooms filled with parasites

a g d

on stage, the band has got problems

a d a a d a

theyre a bag of nerves on first nights



a g d

he aint tied down to no home town


yeh and you thought he was reckless


you think hes bad, he thinks youre mad


yeh, and the guitar player looks reckless






a g d

well his coat is torn and frayed

a g d

and its seen much better days

a g d

just as long as the guitar plays

a d a a d a

let ity steal your heart away




d a e d

Joes got a cough, sounds kind of rough

a g d

yeh, got the codine to fix it

d a e d

Doctor prescribes drugstore supplies

a g d

who`s gonna help him to kick it


repeat chorus
