Attitude Chords
Attitude
Written by: Ray Davies


Opening Riff: G-Major-Pentatonic-Single-Note-Pattern played in the 3rd and 5th fret position
(from C down to D, and then up to C)

(On the "One for the road" version one instrumental |G|A|B|C| progression follows the 
riff)


Verse1:

    G
You go down the pub
    A
You wear make up
    B
And old dads trousers
    C
Why don't you tidy up
    G                          A
You talk like a docker but you act like a queer
    B                        C
You drink champagne then complain it's too dear
    G                  A
You try so hard not to follow any trends
         B                               C
Then you cry in your beer and say you've got no friends
G                                       A
But is it any wonder that you've got no friends


                 G
But it's not the make up
               F     G
Or the way you dress
                 G                         F   G
It's not your appearance, that they all detest
              A                            B
It's not your manners, that you gotta to improve

ooooo--it's your attitude.

Chorus (|GGGG|FFGG|-Pattern)

G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude
G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude

G
Take off your head phones
                  F  G
Hear what's going on

You can't live in a time zone
                  F  G
You've gotta move on
               A
But before you get there
                               B
There's one thing you've gotta do

Oh change your attitude


Chorus (|GGGG|FFGG|-Pattern)

G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude
G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude


Bridge: |C Bb Bb C|


     C               B                          C
The '80s are here, I know cuz I'm staring right at them
    C                        B          C
But you're still waiting for 1960 to happen


Verse 2

(You can play the G-Major-Pentatonic-Riff (as played by Dave) or the |GGGG|FFGG|-Pattern)

                      G                        F    G
You might have the illness, but you've got the cure
                 G                 F   G
You've got the answer, you will endure
                A                            B
You're the only person that's gonna pull you through
                   G
Ooh, with your attitude

Chorus (|GGGG|FFGG|-Pattern)

G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude
G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude


Verse 3: Power chord riff |GFGGCBb| as played by Dave until the A chord
(or the |GGGG|FFGG|-Pattern again)

                          G                    F      G
You gotta learn to be positive, it's your only chance
                       G                           F     G
You mustn't be so defensive, you gotta join in the dance
                     A                         B
But it isn't your dancing that you've gotta improve
                   G
Ooh, it's your attitude.

Chorus (|GGGG|FFGG|-Pattern)

G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude
G         F
Attitude, Oo Oo Oo
G
Your attitude


             G
It's all the music
                 F     G
It's all in your brain
                    G
You've used all the old licks
                   F      G
Now it's all gotta change
G                    F  G
Change your attitude


(Play along |GGGG|FFGG|)

About the artist behind Attitude Chords:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
