Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


A house is not a motel  Love



[Em]At my house I've [G]got no shackles
[Am]You can come and l[C]ook if you want to
[Em]Through the halls you'll [G]see the mountains
[Am]While the light shines [C]dim all around you
[Am]And the streets are [D]paved with gold
And if [Am]someone asks you
[D]You can call my name
Em D Em G (x2)
[Em]You are just a t[G]hought that someone,
[Am]Somewhere, somehow, f[C]eels you should be here
[Em]And it's so for [G]real to touch,
To [Am]smell, to feel, to [C]know where you are here
[Am]And the streets are [D]paved with gold
And if [Am]someone asks you
[D]You can call my name[Em] [D]
[Em]You can call [G]my name[Em] [D]
[Em]I hear you calling [G]my nam[Em]e....[C] [Am] [D]
Instrumental break on:
[Em]    [D]   [Em]    [G]  [Em]    [D]   [Em]    [G]  [Em]    [C]   [Am]    [D]  Em....
Em....
[D]   [C]   [G]   [A]  By the time that I'm through singing
The bells from the schools of walls will be ringing
More confusions, blood transfusions
The news today will be the movies for tomorrow
And the water's turned to blood
And if you don't think so
Go turn on your tub
And if it's mixed with mud
You see it turn to gray
And you can call my name
I hear you calling my name
Ending/fadeout on:
[Em]Here [D]is t[Em]he ta[G]b for the guitar break in the middle:

Verse 1:
        [Em]At my house I've g[G]ot no shackles
        [Am]You can come and lo[C]ok if you want to
        [Em]In the halls you'll s[G]ee the mantles
        [Am]Where the light shines d[C]im all around you
        [Am]And the streets are p[D]aved with gold and if
        [Am]Someone asks you, [D]  you can call my n[Em]ame
        [intro pattern 2X] 
Verse 2:
You are just a thought that someone
Somewhere somehow feels you should be here
And it's so for real to touch
To smell, to feel, to know where you are here
And the streets are paved with gold and if
Someone asks you, you can call my name
You can call my name
        I hear you calling my [Em]name  [C]yeah[Am]    a[D]ll right now
Solo:
        [Em]                                               [Em]         [C]         [Am]         [D]                                             [Em]                                               [D]         [C]         [G]         [A] [Em]                                            [repeat intro] 
Verse 3:
By the time that I'm through singing
The bells from the schools of walls will be ringing
More confusions, blood transfusions
The news today will be the movies for tomorrow
And the water's turned to blood, and if
You don't think so
Go turn on your tub
And it it's mixed with mud
You'll see it turn to gray
And you can call my name
I hear you call my name
Coda:
        [drum break] 
        [multiple overdubbed guitar solos over Em to fade] 
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
