It's all just in D C C G  G Gadd4 G

Gadd4 is a G chord where you play the C note (1st fret) on the B string as well.

listen to the recording for a the strumming pattern and play the solo in the G major pentatonic

Lyrics:

I saw a werewolf with a chinese menu in his hand
Walking through the streets of SoHo in the rain
He was lookin' for the place called Lee Ho Fook's
Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein

Ah-hooo
Werewolves of London
Ah-hooo
Werewolves of London
Ah-hooo

You hear him howlin around your kitchen door
Better not let him in
Little old lady got mutilated late last night
Werewolves of London again
(chorus)
(Guitar Solo)

He's the hairy headed gent
Who ran amok in Kent
Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair
You'd better stay away from him, he'll rip lungs out Jim!
I'd like to meet his tailor

(chorus)

Well I saw Lon Chaney walkin' with the queen
Doin' the werewolves of London
Well I saw Lon Chaney Jr. walkin' with the queen
Doin' the werewolves of London
I saw a werewolf drinkin' a Pina Colada at Trader Vic's
And his hair was--perfect!

(chorus till fade)

How do you finger it?

======        Like this.  Really easy switch between this and G and C
++++++       if you use the 2nd ,3rd & 4th finger G chord (highly
++++1+       recommended, by me, in the key of G for speeding up
+2++++       those chord changes.)
3++++4

Here's the main riff that runs throughout the song arranged for guitar:

WEREWOLVES OF LONDON - Warren Zevon

RIFF:

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|-4-2---2-0---0-0------------|
D|-0-0--------------0-0---2-0-|
A|-------3-3---3-3------------|
E|------------------3-3---3-3-|

E doesn't = MC2, E = Fb

Music "Theory"? "It's not just a theory, it's the way it is!"
