I'm coming down fast but don't let me break you

Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer

A E

Well you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

Helter skelter Yeah

 

So much for verses and choruses. The rest are pretty much the same,

except that the rest of the verses hit the G chord a little sooner

(at the beginning of the third line of the verse).

 

Here's the guitar solo in the middle:

 

E A E

-|----------------------7--7--15b(17)--15b(17)--b(17)15-------------

-|----------------------0--0----------------------------------------

-|----------------------9--9----------------------------------------

-|------------------------------------------------------------------

-|------------------------------------------------------------------

-|------------------------------------------------------------------

'Cos here she comes

A E

-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

-|--b(17)15b(17)15---------------13b(14)------------------b(17)15-----------

-|------------------b(14)12---------------b(14)12b(14)12-----------12-------

-|---------------------------14----------------------------------------14~--

-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Later, there's a neat riff in one of the last verses. I think it

comes right after "will you won't you want me to make you" or something

like that. This is a cool riff with that looonnnng slide.

 

-|--12--15b(17)--b(17)15--12------12----------------------------------------

-|----------------------------15------15\10-----10b(12)--b(12)10--8---------

-|-------------------------------------------9-----------------------7--9---

-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

As the song fades into the first ending, there are some nice bend releases,

while the lyrics repeat "coming down fast":

 

-|--b(17)15------------------------------------------------------------

-|-----------b(17)15---------------------------------------------------

-|--------------------b(16)14------------------------------------------

-|-----------------------------b(14)12---------------------------------

-|--------------------------------------b(14)12------------------------

-|---------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Later, there's a whole lot of Hendrix-like guitar noise.

"This is a song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles.

We're stealing it back."

 

When you get to the bottom

You go back to the top of the slide

And you stop and you turn

And you go for a ride

Till you get to the bottom

Then you see me again

 

Do you, don't you want me to love you?

I'm coming down fast, but I'm miles above you

Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer

You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

 

Helter skelter

Helter skelter

Helter skelter

 

Do you, don't you want me to make you?

Coming down fast I don't want me to break you

Tell me , tell me, tell me the answer

You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

 

Helter skelter

Helter skelter

Helter skelter

 

When you get to the bottom

you go back to the top of the slide

Where you stop and you turn

And you go for a ride

Till you get to the bottom

And I see you again

 

Do you, don't you want me to love you ?

Coming down fast I'm right above you

Tell me , tell me, tell me the answer

You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer

 

Helter skelter

Helter skelter

Helter skelter
