"Cool It Down"--by the Velvet Underground
This is a poppin' track off of VU's last(and final?)studio
album "Loaded". A somewhat simplified version, but play
the D and G of the verse with a bluesy-type groove and mute
the high E string in the D chord so that you can use that
finger to give a pull on the D string which will simulate
the second guitar surprisingly well. The same is true of
the G chord, but bend the G string with your third finger.
Have fun--it's an incredible song and amazingly easy to
[D]Somebody took the papers, and s[D]omebody's got the key
And s[D]omebody's nailed the door shut
Says h[D]ey whatch'you think that you see?
But m[G]e, I'm down around the corner
you know I'm [G]looking for Miss Linda Lee
Because s[D]he's got the power, to love me by the hour
Gives me [D]W-L-O-V-E
H[Bm]ey Baby, you want it so fast
D[G]on't you know that it ain't gonna last?
O[Bm]f course, you know it makes no difference t[G]o me
Somebody's got the time-time(?), somebody's got the right
all of you other people, trying to use up the night
But me, I'm out on the corner--y'know I'm looking for...
Hey, if you want it so fast,
don't you know honey you can't get it so fast
Of course, you know it makes no difference to me
Woh-oh you better-[D]-cool it do[A]wn
You know you better[Bb]--cool it d[D]own
You know you better[D]--cool it d[A]own
You know you better [Bb]c-o-o-o-ol it dow[D]n, you'd better cool
--piano solo--(same as verse)
Hey, if you want it so fast
Better lookey-look baby don't you--want it to last?
But of course you know that, hey it makes no difference to
me-----woh-oh you better, cool it down...(end on D)
