Doobie Brothers - China Grove





INtro - E - D - A - E = 2x's


(verse 1)
E
When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town
D     A               E
Down around San Antone
E
And the folks are risin' for another day
D      A          E
round about their homes
    C#m                    B   E B 
The people of the town are strange
            A        A    A#  B C
and they're proud of where they came,



(chorus)
            E                        D - A
Well you're talkin bout China Grove, 
        E
Whoa oh whoa,
D     A        E    D - A - E
Who whoa China Grove,



(verse 2)
Well the preacher and the teacher, Lord, they're a callin,
They are the talk of the town
When the gossip hits the fan, they ain't lyin'
when the sun goes fallin' down
Well they say that the father's insane,
and dear Missus Perkins a game,



(chorus)
            E                        D - A
Well you're talkin bout China Grove, 
        E
Whoa oh whoa,
D     A        E    D - A - E
Who whoa China Grove,



(bridge)
G#m B C#m
      Well every day there's a new thing comin,
F#m7                    C#m
The ways of an oriental view,
C#m
The sheriff and his buddies with their samurai swords,
F#                    F#sus4   F#       G#m B 
you can even hear the music at night,
C#m
And though it's a part of the Lone Star state,
F#m7                     C#m
The people don't seem to care,
A                                       C - D - E - C - D - E
They'll just keep on lookin' to the east,




(lead chords - E - D - A - E)



(chorus)
            E                        D - A
Well you're talkin bout China Grove, 
        E
Whoa oh whoa,
D     A        E    D - A - E
Who whoa China Grove,

Some of the chords do not line up exactly right but they are all there.
It wont take long to figure it out. Another good job.

Play This With An Electric With A Bright Heavy Distorted Sound
And A Lot Of Reverb. It Is Perfect. The Riff Can Be Used All
The Way Through The Song With A Acoustic Rythym Part Behinded
It And I'm Pretty Shure You Will Have It Nailed.
