PSYCHOBILLY TAB

Stray Cats, The - Rock This Town


Instrument: guitar

D (riff #1)
e------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------------------------------------------------------------|
D------7---7---9---7---7---7---9---7---7---7---9---7---7---7---9---|
A------5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---|
E------------------------------------------------------------------|


Over the A chord Setzer plays different variations of the same lick...
it goes something like this...

A (riff#2)
E-----5---5---5-------5---5---5---|
B-----5---7---5-------5---7---5---|
G-----6---6---5h--6---------------|
D---------------------------------|
A---------------------------------|
E---------------------------------|

This is the basic idea...he plays it a little differently each time he hits
the A chord.


The next section of the song has a cool progression from D9 to G to E7 it
looks like this...

D9 G E7

E---4 / 5---5---4---5------3---3---3-------0---0---0---0---|
B---4 / 5---5---4---5------3---3---3-------0---0---0---0---|
G---4 / 5---5---4---5------4---4---4-------7---7---7---7---|
D------------------------------------------6---6---6---6---|
A------------------------------------------7---7---7---7---|
E----------------------------------------------------------|


This next riff is played in between the verses, it's only played on the D
and A strings...

(riff # 3)

D-----------4---4---5---5---6---6---7---7---6---6---5---5---4---4---|
A---5---5-----------------------------------------------------------|

The final cool Setzer lick is the one that everyone knows...
he plays it in a couple spots during

the song...you'll know it when you hear it....

(riff # 4)

B-----10---12---10--------10---10---12---10---------|
G-----11---12---11--------11---11---12---11---------|
D------------------12--------------------------12---|


Well my baby and me went out late Saturday night,
I had my hair piled high, my baby just looked so right,
Well, pick you up at ten gotta have you home by two,
Momma don't know what I got in store for you,
But that's all right cause we're looking as cool as can be.
Well, we found a little place that really didn't look that bad
I had a whiskey on the rocks and change of a dollar for the juke box.
Well, I put a quarter right into that can but all they played was disco man,
come on pretty baby lets get outta here right away.

chorus:

We're gonna rock this town, rock it inside out
We're gonna rock this town, make 'em scream and shout
Let's rock, rock, rock man, rock
We're gonna rock till we pop, gonna rock till we drop
We're gonna rock this town rock it inside out.


Well we're having a ball bopping on the big dance floor,
There's a real square cat he looks 1974.
Well he look at me once, he look at me twice, look at me again and there's
a gonna be a fight. We're gonna rock this town, rip this place apart.

chorus
