Modern Lovers - Astral Plane

Here is another tab/chord chart for a song from the 
Modern Lovers' 1976 album, *The Modern Lovers.* 
I would be extremely interested in hearing from 
anybody with corrections, comments, etc.

Thanks,

Astral Plane

This song has two main riffs. listen to the record to get the feeling
of the time, etc, but the basic rifs are the "E riff":

e-0---0----------------0--
B-0---0----------------0--
G-1---1----------------1--
D-2---2----------------2--
A-2---2----------------2--
E-0---0---3---5---3----0--

I guess that would be written as E   E/G  E/A  E/G  E , but it is
easier for me to think of it this way.

The "A riff" is about the same except it uses an A intead of an E.

e-0---0----------------0--
B-2---2----------------2--
G-2---2----------------2--
D-2---2----------------2--
A-0---0----------------0--
E-X---X---3---5---3----X--

The chord progression during the organ solos sounds like:

E A E B E

Here are the lyrics with the chords:



(N.C. means "No Chord")



N.C.                            E (hit the three high strings)
Tonight I'm all alone in my room
N.C.                        E
I'll go insane if you won't sleep with me
         E
Or still be with you
E
I'm gonna meet you on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for dark at night
E     N.C.                    E
The astral plane or I'll go insane

E riff
Well I don't see you and it's getting dark
E riff
Today we should have gone to Central Park
A riff
Well don't you want to see me ever again?
E   N.C.
If not I'll meet you on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for late at night
E riff         E  N.C.          E riff
The astral plane or I'd go insane

(Organ solo)
E A E B E, (etc.)

E riff
Well we've known each other from other lives
E riff
I want to see you today
A riff
But I'll prove my knowledge of what's inside
E  N.C.
When I intercept you on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for late at night
E riff            E N.C.          E riff
The astral plane or I'll go insane

Alright

E A E B E

E riff
Well I don't see you and it's getting dark
E riff
I'd have a lot to say
A riff
But you're not the one that I can say it to
E riff
At least not today
E riff
Oh, well I don't remember it afterwords
E riff
I don't yet know the words!
E riff
But I know we've been together just this week
E riff
We've been together on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for late at night
E riff
The astral plane or I'd go insane

(and so on . . . . )
{repeat first verse}
