TUNING: EADGBE

SUBMITTED BY: Charlie Coombs (1st Version) & Chuck Singer (2nd Version) CHORDS:
F
Bb
C
Dm
This isn't really a guitar song. The following represents the chords that a guitarist could have used to strum along with the song. In some places it sounds cool to "walk" from one chord to the next INTRO: F F Bb F Up in that new space station F Bb F Living Kennedy's dream F C There was an automatic camera C F Shooting elephantine F Bb F While the crew was relaxing F Bb F Before the video screen F Dm Watching old reruns Bb C Of Mohammed Ali C F C Bb The voice of Houston calling Bb Brought them back to the scene Bb They said the sky is falling Bb F Do you know what that means? Out on that Texas sidewalk Through the hotel mezzanine There walked a see-through hooker To a suite with 2 T.V.s But by the elevator She began to sneeze With an attack so uncontrollable It brought her to her knees And then the hotel doctor With nurse and stethoscope Announced the worst is over But for her there is no hope Way down in South Dakota On the Needles highway There's a lone red rider On the road today And though his war is over He's fighting on anyway Although he's seldom sober He's drinking whiskey all day Down in that old box canyon Where only misfits can go He rides with no companion But saloon and rodeo VERSE 1 END ON: F NOTE: Someone had posted an accurate chord version of Misfits. I performed this with *SR* member Paul Gase for the Zain's Glasses upcoming tribute. I made it a bit more guitarist friendly because as the previous poster stated, it's not really a guitar song.I tuned my guitar down a whole step and so I guess it's being played in C.

Out on that Texas sidewalk Through the hotel mezzanine There walked a see-through hooker To a suite with 2 T.V.s But by the elevator She began to sneeze With an attack so uncontrollable It brought her to her knees And then the hotel doctor With nurse and stethoscope Announced the worst is over But for her there is no hope VERSE 3: Way down in South Dakota On the Needles highway There's a lone red rider On the road today And though his war is over He's fighting on anyway Although he's seldom sober He's drinking whiskey all day Down in that old box canyon Where only misfits can go He rides with no companion But saloon and rodeo VERSE 1
