        Notes about this song:

Harmonica: Bb

Picking Pattern:

     C -----------------------> F-------------|

     F---> Fmaj7----> Am-------> Em-----------|


C                      F
Back in the old folky days
Am           Em             D
The air was magic when we played
C                                 F
The riverboat was rockin' in the rain
Am               Em           D
Midnight was the time for the raid
Oh, Isabela, proud Isabela
They tore you down and plowed you under
Bm                          C
You're only real with your make-up on
G                        D
How could I see you and stay too long

C                      F
All along the Navajo Trail
Am                    Em              D
Burn-outs stub their toes on garbage pails.
C                             F
Waitresses are cryin' in the rain
Am                    Em             D
Will their boyfriends pass this way again
Oh, Mother Goose, she's on the skids
Sure ain't happy, neither are the kids
Bm                 C
She needs someone that she can scream at
G                    D
And I'm such a heel for makin' her feel so bad
C                              F
I guess I'll call it sickness gone
Am                   Em              D
It's hard to say the meaning of this song
C                           F
An ambulance can only go so fast
Am                Em           D
It's easy to get buried in the past
C                           F    Am  Em  D
When you try to make a good thing last

Harmonica:  G  C  G  C  Am     G  C  G  C  Am

I saw today in the entertainment section
There's room at the top for private detection
Bm              C
To Mom and Dad this just doesn't matter
G                   D
But it's either that or pay off the kidnapper
C                        F
So all you critics sit alone
Am                   Em                   D
You're no better than me for what you've shown
C                           F
With your stomach pump and your hook and ladder dreams
Am               Em              D We could get
together for some scenes

Harmonica:  G  C  G  C  Am  G  C  G  C  Am G

Well, I'm up in T.O. keepin' jive alive
And out on the corner it's half past five
But the subways are empty
And so are the cafes
Except for the Farmer's Market
And I still can hear him say

You're all just pissin' in the wind
You don't know it but you are
And there ain't nothin' like a friend
Who can tell you you're just pissin' in the wind

I never knew a man could tell so many lies
He had a different story for every set of eyes
How can he remember who he's talking to
Cause I know it ain't me, and hope it isn't you

About the artist behind Ambulance Blues Tab:

Neil Percival Young[1] OM (born November 12, 1945, Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician and film director.

Young's work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and signature nasal tenor singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of claw-hammer acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the linchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronic music throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock (as heard in songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Harvest Moon" and "Old Man") and electric-charged hard rock (in songs like "Cinnamon Girl", "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)"). In more recent years, Young has started to adopt elements from newer styles of music, such as industrial, alternative country and grunge, the latter of which was profoundly influenced by his own style of playing, often bringing him the title of "the godfather of grunge".

Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), and Greendale (2003).[2]

He is also an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, having co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid, and in 1986 helped found The Bridge School,[3] and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his wife Pegi.

Although Young sings frequently about U.S. legends and myths (Pocahontas, space stations, and the settlement of the American West),[4] he remains a Canadian citizen and has never wanted to relinquish his Canadian citizenship. He has lived in the U.S. for "so long" and has stated, about U.S. elections, that he has "got just as much right to vote in them as anybody else."[5]
