Jethro Tull: Cross Eyed Mary
From the album <Aqualung>
Copyright 1971
Music by Ian Anderson
Lyrics by Ian Anderson

Pretty easy indeed. To get Martin's sound, I use a Vintage Overdrive and
a Auto Wah on my Boss GT3. Notes between {} are not played on the song,
but will sound sweet when playing alone.

Lyrics:

Who would be a poor man, a beggarman, a thief
If he had a rich man in his hand.
And who would steal the candy from a laughing baby's mouth
If he could take it from the money man.

Cross-eyed Mary goes jumping in again.
She signs no contract but she always plays the game.
Dines in Hampstead village on expense accounted gruel,
And the jack-knife barber drops her off at school.

Laughing in the playground gets no kicks from little boys:
Would rather make it with a letching grey.
Or maybe her attention is drawn by Aqualung,
who watches through the railings as they play.

Cross-eyed Mary finds it hard to get along.
She's a poor man's rich girl and she'll do it for a song.
She's a rich man stealer but her favour's good and strong:
She's the Robin Hood of Highgate helps the poor man get along.

Tablature Explanation:
NT   = Nashville Tuning is when the low E, A, D & G strings are replaced with
       lighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal.
|    = bar separating measures
~    = vibrato
x    = percussive note with no pitch; muted note
.    = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h    = hammer
p    = pull
s    = slide (used when \ or / don't fit)
^    = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
r    = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)
t    = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
x/   = pick slide up
x\   = pick slide down
<5>  = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[5]  = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
(5)  = note sustained from previous measure
o    =\ repeat sign
o    =/
DC   = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials
        you go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
DS   = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
        only as far as the (%) sign.
Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that brings
       it to a formal close.
Al
Coda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the end
          section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
RF   = repeat and fade
rit  = "ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.

Other pertinent information:
  Tuning:  Standard [EADGBe].
  Key signature:  C
  Effects:
  Chord Chart Below for major chords

Tablature Format:

This Tablature is based on the format indicated below.

  1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4     <--Quarter note beat locations
  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8   1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8   <--Eighth note beat locations
                                      <--Effects/Misc Line
  D                 C     G/B         <--Chord Line
  e e e q   q   e   e e e q   e e e   <--Note Duration Line (table below)
|-----2-----------|-----------------| <--High E string
|-------3---------|-----------------| <--B string
|---2-------2---0-|-----0-------0---| <--G string
|-0---------------|---2-------0---0-| <--D string
|-----------------|-3-----2---------| <--A string
|-----------------|-----------------| <--E string

Effects/Misc Line:  Provides effects information, number of repeats, etc.

Chord Line:  Provides the chord name for the chords used in the
             tab below.

Note Duration Line:  Provides the "value" of each note, e.g., whole,
                     half, quarter, etc.

Note Duration Designator Table:
  w = Whole note                   h = Half note
  q = Quarter note                 H = Dotted half note
  Q = Dotted Quarter note          s = Sixteenth note
  e = Eighth note                  S = Dotted sixteenth note
  E = Dotted eighth note           + = Duration exceeds 2 measures
  t = Thirty-second note
  T = Dotted thirty-second note

  Notes with two designations immediately adjacent to each other
  have durations added (e.g., he = half note + eigth note, etc.)

String lines:  Represent the strings of a guitar.  The tab is laid
               out as if you placed a right handed guitar on your
               lap, string side up.  A vertical line character "|"
               represents a bar between measures.  A dash "-" represents
               each string.  The numbers indicate which fret should
               be fingered to sound the note.  The first space after
               every bar is a blank space that is almost never used.
               Quarter notes are separated by 3 dashes, eighth notes
               are separated by 1 dash.  In an effort to make the
               ASCII tab look as much like tab in a music book, the
               notes are spaced out as accurately as possible.  In the
               event the notes will not fit into the format shown above,
               the tab will be expanded (usually only required for
               solos).
