Modern Lovers - Old World

Hi,
This one even has the solo tabbed out.

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,

Old World

Here is another Modern Lovers song that has two chords (this time they
are A & G).

Opening riff goes like this:
(please listen to the record for the rhythm, feel, and ability to keep
your place in the old world, etc., but this is the basic idea)

A

e---0-0-0-3-0-3-3-0-3-3-0-----------
B---2-2-2---2-------------3-3-3-----
G---2-2-2---2-----------------------  REPEAT FOUR TIMES
D---2-2-2---2-----------------------
A---0-0-0---0-----------------------
E---x-x-x---x-----------------------

After the opening riff, while singing the song, this little riff can
be played at the end of each phrase in which the chord is an A:

A

e---0------------------------------3--0-----0--
B---2------------------------------------3-----
G---2------------------------------------------
D---2------------------------------------------
A---0------------------------------------------
E---x------------------------------------------

Well the old world may be dead . . .



(I think this little end riff is probably played by the organ, as it
is heard on the record, but this seems to work for solo guitar.)



The solo riff from the middle of the song goes soemthing like this:



e------0-------0---0-------------------------------
B----2---2-------2---------------------------------
G---------------------2----------0--2--------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

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

e------0-------0---0-------------------------------
B----2---2-------2---------------------------------
G----------------------2----------0--2-------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

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

(please listen to the record for the exact rhythm here)

e----0---0---0---0-------------
B--2---2---2---2---2-0---------
G-----------------------2------
D------------------------------
A------------------------------
E------------------------------

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

e----0---0---0---0-------------
B--2---2---2---2---2-0---------
G-----------------------2------
D------------------------------
A------------------------------
E------------------------------

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

(then just these strummed chords a few times)

A                G              A

e----------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------

(and so on . . . .)



Here it is with the lyrics:

Opening riff (see above)

A                              (end riff )
Well the old world may be dead
A
Our parents can't understand
G
But I still have parents
A
And I still love the old world
A
Oh, I had a New York girlfriend
A
And she couldn't understand how I could
G                  A
Still have parents and still love the old world

So I told her:
A
I want to keep my place in the old world
A
Keep my plave in the arcane
G                           A
'Cause I still have parents and I still love the old world
A
Alright
A
I say old world
A
I say old world
A     G    A
I say

Well I see a '50's apartment house
Bleak in the morning sun
But I still love the '50's
And I still love the old world
I wanna keep my place in the old world
Keep my place in the arcane
'Cause I still have parents and I still love the old world
Alright

SOLO    (see the solo riff tabbed above, insert it here)

I see the '50's apartment house
It's bleak in the 1970's sun
But I still love the '50's
And I still love the old world
I wanna keep my place in this old world
Keep my place in the arcane knowledge
And I still love the '50's and I still love the old world

Alright now we say bye bye old world
Gotta help the new world
Oh bye bye
I say bye bye bye bye old world
