Subject: Crd: Put the Money Down, The Who

 

 

The Who's...

 

PUT THE MONEY DOWN

 

 

INTRO:

E / A / | E / D A | E / A / | E / D A || x2

[2nd time: "I got lost in the . . ."]

 

VERSE I:

[I got lost in the] back-streets

E A

 

Trying to get here tonight

E A E A

 

The police were asking questions

E A E A

 

They took me to the wrong place twice

E A E A

 

I even lost my passport

E A7 D(A)*

 

And I forgot my name and town

A7 E A E

 

But now I'm here by the water

G D(F#) Em D C

 

Put the money down

D E A E A E A E

 

Before I walk on the water

F#m G#m A

 

Put the money down, down, down

G D(F#) E

 

There are bands killing chickens

F#m G#m A

 

My heros getting pushed around, 'round, 'round

G D(F#) E

 

I don't know if I trust you

A7 D(A)*

 

As you try to shoot me down

A7 E A E

 

Before I walk on the water

F#m G#m A

 

Put the money down, down, down

G D(F#) C(E)

 

Put the money down.

D E / A / | E / D A |

 

E / A / | E / / / ||

 

 

BRIDGE:

'Twas a beautiful day in Columbus when the fences fell

C G

 

But the five loaves and fishes ain't gonna be much help

D A

 

I've got a hungry juggler here who wants to keep ahead

C G

 

Before he walks the water, he wants his bread.

D A

 

 

[SOLO:] E / A / | E / A / | E / A / | E / A / |

 

E / A / | E / A / | E / A / | E / / / ||

["Take a glass of that . . ."]

 

 

VERSE II:

[Take a glass of that] nice brown ale

E A

 

And a purple pill

E A E A

 

If the ale don't get you too

E A E A

 

Sure as hell the pill will

E A E A

 

Oh mummy mummy

E A7 D(A)*

 

Please may I go down town

A7 E A E

 

He's gonna walk on the water

G D(F#) Em D C

 

Put the money down

D E / A / | E / A / | E / A / | E / / / ||

["Put it down!"]

 

BREAK:

E / A / | E / D A | E / A / | E / / / ||

["Before I walk on the . . ."]

 

 

[Before I walk on the] water

F#m G#m A

 

Put the money down, down, down

G D(F#) E

 

There are bands killing chickens

F#m G#m A

 

My heros getting pushed around, 'round, 'round

G D(F#) E

 

I don't know if I trust you

A7 D(A)*

 

As you try to shoot me down

A7 E A E

 

Before I walk on the water

F#m G#m A

 

Put the money down, down, down, down, down

G D(F#) Em D C

 

Put the money down

D E / A / | E / A / | E / A / | E / A / ||

["In a tin cup"]

 

 

REPEAT UNTIL FADE

 

 

 

* These 'D(A)' chords are best played like an 'appended' A chord.

For instance, first finger barring the B, G & D strings (2nd fret),

with second finger on B string (3rd fret), and 3rd finger on

D string (4th fret).

 

 

It's also worth noting with this song that there are a lot of

minor 7ths implied by the piano and guitars. (For instance,

D notes against E chords; G notes against A chords). This

 

is better 'felt' and improvised than written down.

 

 

See ya!
