"Somebody"(Tyler/Emspack)

Performed by Aerosmith on "Aerosmith"(1973)
Transcribed by Bryson Meunier

rhy.fig.1-

   E---------------------------------------------------|
   B---------------------------------------------------|
   G---------------------------------------------------|
   D---------------------------------------------------|
   A----2--2--4----2--4--2--2---4----------------------|
   E----0--0--0----0--0--0--0---0--2---2--3-3--4-4-----|
This riff changes slightly, sometimes  changing to (2  3  4) instead of (2 3
3  4 4). When the verse comes in, play this:
   rhy.fig.2-
    I need a lady not somebody shady...
   E---------------------------------------------------|
   B------2--------------------------------------------|
   G------2-------(3x)---------------------------------|
   D------2--------------------------------------------|
   A---------------------------------------------------|
   E----------------------0---3---0---3----------------|
(rhy.fig.1))
The words fit into the music like this:

        I need a lady not somebody shady
        need someone to be close to
        somebody cozy not somebody nosy
        help me see my whole day through
        F#5
        someone to share the load
        A5
        somebody to walk the road I live on...live!(rhy.fig.1)

Basic chords for this part go like this:
    fill 1-
       F#5   A5       live on...live
   E---------------------------------------------------|
   B---------------------------------------------------|
   G-------------------9--9\-----9---------------------|
   D---4-----7---------9--9\-----9---------------------|
   A---4-----7---------7--7\-----7---------------------|
   E---2-----5-----------------------------------------|
        (rhy.fig.2)

        Good Lord send me, good lord mend me
        send me down someone for me
        said I won't be choosy you could send me a floozy
        send me anybody you please
        F#5
        Somebody say you will
        A5
        Somebody further still
        G5           B5
        Somebody some-somebody for me(fill 1)
    fill 2-   D5       A                E
   E---------------------------------------------------|
   B-------------------2-------------------------------|
   G----9----7--7------2-------------------------------|
   D----9----7--7------2----------------2--------------|
   A----7----5--5-----------------------2--------------|
   E-------------------------3---2---0--0--------------|
        Now won't you send me somebody
(repeat twice)

I used two barre chords in this transcription without tabbing them. Here
they are for those who don't know:
      B5   G5
   E-------------|
   B-------------|
   G---4---------|
   D---4----5----|
   A---2----5----|
   E--------3----|

   (guitar solo(by the way, anyone who wants to post the solo is more than
welcome))

        (rhy.fig.1)
        yeah somebody
        won't you send me somebody
        now won't you send me somebody

        (rhy.fig.2)
        well,call for somebody scream loud and bloody
        call woman woman come on to me
        save for tomorrow share all your sorrow
        misery enjoys company(yes it does,yes it does)

The song ends with a variation of fill 1 if I remember correctly. Although
even if it doesn't, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out with the chords
that I've posted here.
Again, comments, questions and corrections are welcome at meunier.1@osu.edu
Enjoy the post.
