You Were The Fool

By Ween

From the album 12 Golden Country Greats


The E riff is played throughout most of the verse section, although its
possible to just play E during the parts with singing, and using the riff
inbetween the lyrics.

[intro:play riff twice]

[verse one]
[w/riff]
Bless the father bless the son
Cross your heart cause you're the one
   A                        [riff twice]
Collecting moonbeams in the morning
[w/riff]
Curvy sticks and wooden poles
Assisting you in plugging holes
A                                     [riff twice]
Plug them holes 'til you see straight through to the mind's eye

[chorus]
D                                A
Think about it, turn around, and go back to the quiet sound
Am7                                 Dadd4               [riff once]
While Jim and Dan prance around the pool - You were the fool
           A         [riff once]
And I feel sorry for you - You were the fool
            D                 A
But there's something you can do


[riff twice]


[verse two]
[w/riff]
You can wash your arm in a pool of mud
You can chop a tree, prevent a flood
        A                           [riff twice]
You can speak with a turtle just by flippin' him around
[w/riff]
You can build a boat, you can sail the sea
You can buy a mold and forge your key
A                      [riff twice]
Initiate the sequence, create catastrophe


[chorus]
D                                A
Think about it, turn around, and go back to the quiet sound
Am7                                 Dadd4               [riff]
While Jim and Dan prance around the pool - You were the fool
           A         E                  [riff]
And I feel sorry for you - You were the fool
            D                 A
But there's something you can do

[riff twice]
