A House Is Not a Motel  Love

"A House Is Not A Motel"
(Arthur Lee)
Intro: [12-string acoustic, 4X; bass enters 3rd time]

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
[repeat intro pattern 2X] 
Verse 2:
[ Tab from: bttp:// ] 
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

[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
[drum break] 
[multiple overdubbed guitar solos over Em; original release cuts off
abruptly, reissues fade out]
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
