C'mon Billy  PJ Harvey

Subject: CRD:C'Mon Billy by PJ Harvey
Date: Tue, 28 Nov 95 14:15:00 PST
by Polly Jean Harvey
Performed by PJ Harvey
from "To Bring You My Love" LP
Chords written out by David Heggie
Firstly, the song itself is fairly easy to play chord-wise -
there's no hard chords in it at all. There's a fair amount of
muting of the strings, very like in her other song on the same
album, "Send His Love To Me". No amount of describing would tell
you how to play this - just listen to the record and play along -
you'll get the hang of it.
The chords used & how to play them are :
 Am C Dm Em e:---0-----0----1-----0----- Notice how she plays the Am chord
 B:---1-----1----3-----0----- it's played this way (hammering on
 G:---0h2---0----2-----0----- the E and A notes) throughout the
 D:---0h2---2----0-----2----- verses. Again, to make it
 A:---0-----3----0-----2----- clearer, listen to the record.

Here's how they fit into the Verse and Chorus :
[Am] C'mon Billy[C], [Am] Come to me[C]
[Am] You know I'm waiting[C], I'll [Dm]love [C]you [Dm]end[C]less[Am]ly.
[Am] C'mon Billy[C], [Am] you're the only one[C],
[Am] Don't you think it's time [C]now you [Dm]met [C]your [Dm]on-[C]ly [Am]son ?
[Am] I remember[C] [Am] our lovers' play[C]
[Am] The corn was golden[C], we [Dm]lay [C]in [Dm]it [C]for [Am]days
[Am] I remember[C] [Am] the things you said[C]
[Am] My little Billy[C], come [Dm]to [C]your [Dm]lo-[C]ver's [Dm]bed
[Dm] Come home,[Am] is my plea
[Em] Your home now is[Am] here with me
[Dm] Come home[Am] to your son
[Em] Tomorrow might never come
C'mon Billy, you look good to me
How many nights now your child inside ohh - v.unsure about this!
Don't forget me, I had your son
Damn thing went crazy, but I swear you're the only one
(INSTRUMENTAL) for rest of verse
Then just repeat :
[Am] Come along Billy[C], [Am] Come to Me[C]
Until the end of the song.
