   Dm  D@5th   Dm  D@7th   Dm  D@5th   Dm  A      Bb   Dm

[on B&B]: the track is played in C minor
1 whole step (2 frets) down

The intro./between verses part is the first 2
measures of the Main Riff above repeated, but
play the A chord on beat 4 just before each verse.

Verse 1:
Bb                Dm
Help me mama, for I have grinned
Bb                 Dm
Save me daddy from where I'm goin'
Bb                      Dm
Call out to me from the ages beyond
Bb
Help me remember how to be good
Bb                                  (Main Riff)
How to continue when I feel I really shouldn't
Bb
How to remember how to be good
Bb                                  (Main Riff)
How to continue when I feel I really shouldn't

Verse 2:
Help me granddaddy to see the swans
Strike me granny with your golden pump
Teach me now what I could never learn before
How to remember how to be good
How to continue when I feel I really shouldn't
How to remember how to be good
How to continue when I feel I really shouldn't

Verse 3:
Teach me Great Uncle to hear the talk
Show me Aunt Avis with your ageless chalk
Scratch it out for me on my cloudy retina
How to remember how to be good
How to continue when I know I really shouldn't
How to remember how to be good
How to continue when I know I really shouldn't
How to remember how to be good
How to continue when I feel I really shouldn't
