L.A. Woman
(The Doors: Jim Morrison / Ray Manzarek / Robby Krieger / John Densmore)
Transcribed by: Paul Zimmerman
Modified for Panic's version by Scott Holcomb
The majority of the song is played over an A chord,
so if there isn't a chord specified, assume it's A.

L.A. woman, Sunday afternoon, drive through you suburbs

Into your blues, into your blues,

Into your blue, blue, blue, into your blues, oh yeah!


(Piano solo)


Bridge:

I see your hair is burning,
A         G           A  G    A  G  A  G
Hills are filled with fi-re.
        A     G     A     G    A  G  A  G
If they say I never loved you,
    A         G     A  G   A  G  A  G
You know they are a li-ar.
A       G         A   G    A  G  A  G
Drivin' down your freeway,
A        G      A     G  A  G  A  G
Midnight alleys roam.
A
Cops in cars, topless bars, never saw a woman
    G         A         G         A
So alone, so alone, so alone, so alone

Slower tempo groove over A

Repeat the following:
    A    C  A
Mr. Mojo Risin
      A       C  A
Gotta keep on risin'
A       C  A
Risin', risin'

Increase tempo slowly to a very quick speed and jam over
4 measures of C, 4 measures of D, then finally back to A.

Repeat verse 1

End on the Mr. Mojo Risin part.
