2. Song structure and lyrics:
Intro: |C5 |C5 |C5 |C5 |C5 |C5 |
Verse 1:
[C5]Well the times gettin' hard for you little girl
I'm a [G5]hummin' and a strummin' all [D5]over God's world
[C5]You can't remember when you got your last meal
And [G5]you don't know just how a [D5]woman feels
[Bb7]You didn't know what rock 'n' roll was
Un- [Eb/Bb]til you met my drummer on a grey tour bus
[Bb7]I got there in the nick of time
Be- [Eb/Bb]fore he got his hands across your state line
Chorus:
I said [C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F5]shy, babe
[C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F5]shy, babe
[C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F5]shy, babe [G]
Verse 2:
Now its the [C5]middle of the night on the open road
The [G5]heater don't work and it's [D5]oh-so cold
[C5]You're lookin' tired, you're lookin' kinda beat
The [G5]rhythm of the street sure [D5]knocks you off your feet
[Bb7]You didn't know how rock 'n' roll looked
Un- [Eb/Bb]til you caught your sister with the guys from the group
[Bb7]Half-way home in the parking lot
By the [Eb/Bb]look in her eyes she was givin' what she got
Chorus
Solo:
|C5 |C5 |F5 |F5 | 2x
Well [C5]Woman you're a mess gonna die in your sleep
There's [G5]blood on my amp and my [D5]fenders beat
[C5]Can't keep you home, you're messin' around
My [G5]best friend told me you're the [D5]best lick in town
[Bb7]You didn't know that rock 'n' roll burned
[Eb/Bb]So you bought a candle and you live and you learn
[Bb7]You got the rhythm, you got the speed
[Eb/Bb]Mamma's little baby likes it short and sweet
Chorus plus:
I said [C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F5]shy, babe
[C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F5]shy, babe
[C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F5]shy, babe
[C5]Ah ah ah once bitten twice [F]shy

3. Tabs
There are two rhythm guitars, but I don't have a clue who's who.
So I just call them rhythm guitar 1 (the guitar panned to your right
speaker) and 2 (the guitar panned to your left speaker).

The Bb- and the Eb-chords are quite a stretch in first position. I've
choosen for this as the low F can only be reached in the first
position. You can also play these chords in the sixth position but
then the distance to the low F is very large.
This would be the alternative:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

Solo:
The backing for the solo is the same as the first eight bars of
the chorus.
Before you start with the solo you'll have to learn an old country-lick
which is used in rock many times (if you don't know it already).
Play the following triad:
E|--8--| E|-----| For this E|-----|
B|--8--| Now it's B|-----| lick you B|-----|
G|--9--| about this G|--9--| have to G|-7b9-|
D|-----| note: D|-----| bend the D|-----|
A|-----| A|-----| note up A|-----|
E|-----| E|-----| from the E|-----|
7th pos.
In order to place E|--8--| Play the bend with E|-8---|
this into the B|--8--| your ringfinger B|-8---|
chord you'll G|-----| (supported by the G|-7b9-|
have to place D|-----| middle finger and/or D|-----|
a small bar A|-----| the index finger if A|-----|
with your pinky E|-----| necessary) E|-----|
on the 8th pos.
