You Were the Fool  Ween

Ween - You Were the Fool
From the amazing album 12 Golden Country Greats
The song's signature is the little hammer-ons he hits when playing the E chord. As he
strums the E, he does 0h2 hammer-ons on the A, D, and G strings. Listen to the song to
hear it.
When solo, Gene sometimes puts a capo on the second fret, but with Ween I'm pretty sure
he didn't use the capo.
I think it sounds better with the capo on 2, but that may just be because I have more
trouble hitting the hammer-ons with no capo. Also, the E is the only chord he plays open,
all the others are barre chords. I have simplified those barre chords; there's probably
some 7th stuff happening that I'm not smart enough to figure out. And don't miss the
surprise C chord near the end.

[E]Bless the father bless the son
[E]Cross your heart 'cause you're the one
Coll[A]ecting moonbeams in the [E]morning
[(E)]  
[E]Curvy sticks and wooden poles
[E]Assisting you in plugging holes
[A]Plug them holes till you see straight [E]through to the mind's eye
[(E)]  
__Chorus__
[D]Think about it turn around
[A]And go back to the quiet sound
Of [C]Jim and Dan prancing 'round the [D]pool
You were the [E]fool, and I feel [A]sorry for [E]you
You were the [E]fool, but there's [D]something you can [A]do
[(E)]  
__Verse__
You can [E]wash your arm in a pool of mud
You can [E]chop a tree, prevent a flood
You can [A]speak with a turtle just by [E]flipping him around
[(E)]  
You can [E]build a boat, and sail the sea
You can [E]buy a moat and forge a key
In[A]itiate the sequence, c[E]reate catastrophe
[(E)]  
__Chorus__
[D]Think about it turn around
And [A]go back to the quiet sound
Of [C]Jim and Dan prancing 'round the[D] pool
You were the [E]fool, and I feel [A]sorry for [E]you
You were the [E]fool, but there's [D]something you can [A]do
[(E)]  
__Verse__
[E]Bless the father, bless the son
[E]Cross your heart 'cause you're the one
[A]Collecting moonbeams in the [E]morning

[A]Plug them holes till you see straight [E]through to the mind's eye

And [A]go back to the quiet sound
Of [C]Jim and Dan prancing round the [D]pool
You were the [E]fool, and I feel [A]sorry for [E]you
You were the [E]fool, but there's [D]something you can [C]do
You were the [E]fool
