All The Young Dudes - Mott The Hoople
00:00 / 00:00
Tabs and lyrics
Tunning: Nashville (E A D G B E)
Artist: Mott The Hoople
Song: All The Young Dudes
Tabbed by: John leadman


D and D/A are not the same chord. I know many people
always play the open A string when they're playing a D chord, but
in this song you should not play the A string when you're playing
the D, but let it ring out when you're playing the D/A chord. This
song has a cool descending bassline, but when you're playing
alone it's important to try to let the bass notes ring out clearly


CHORDS:


D (xx0232) A (x02220) G (320033)
Dmaj7 (xx0222) Asus4 (x02230) Am (x02210)
Bm (x24432) Em (022000) Am7/G (302010)
D/A (x00232) Em7 (022030) F (133211)
F#m (244222) F# (244322) C (x32010)

[VERSE 1]

D Dmaj7
Billy rapped all night about his suicide,
Bm D/A
How he'd kick it in the head when he was twenty-five
F#m A Asus4 A
Speed jive, don't wanna stay alive when you're twenty-five
D Dmaj7
And Wendy's stealing clothes from Mark's & Sparks and
Bm D/A
Freddy's got spots from ripping off the stars
F#m A Asus4 A
From his face - a funky little boat race


[PRE-CHORUS]

Em Em7
The television man is crazy
F# Bm
sayin' we're juvenile delinquent wrecks
G D A Asus4 A
Oooh, man, I need a TV when I've got T. Rex

Oh brother, ya guessed - I'm a dude yeah


[In the chorus, the words in ( ) is the stuff that
the lead singer's saying.]


[CHORUS] [see below for the electric guitar]


D Dmaj7 Bm
All the young dudes (hey, dudes)
D/A Am
Carry the news (where are ya?)
Am7/G F
Boogaloo dudes (stand up, c'mon)
C G C A D
Carry the news
D Dmaj7 Bm
All the young dudes (I wanna hear you)
D/A Am
Carry the news (I wanna see you)
Am7/G F
Boogaloo dudes (I wanna talk to you, all of you)
C G C A D
Carry the news


What the electric guitar is doing in the chorus is basically
just picking out the bass line. If you're playing this in a
band with an electric, the electric should play this:


[CHORUS-RIFF]

E|---1----------------------------------|


[VERSE 2] [play like verse 1]


Lucy's looking sweet, coz he dresses like a queen,
but he can kick like a mule, its a real mean team
But we can love, oh yes, we can love
And my brother's back at home with his Beatles and his Stones
We never got it off on that revolution stuff
What a drag - too many snags


[PRE-CHORUS] [play like first pre-chorus]

Well I drunk a lotta wine and I'm feelin' fine
Gonna race some cat to bed
Is that concrete all around or is it in my head?
Yeah, I'm a dude yeah


[CHORUS] [play like first chorus]


All the young dudes (hey dudes)
Carry the news (where are ya?)
Boogaloo dudes (stand up)
Carry the news
All the young dudes (I wanna hear ya)
Carry the news (I wanna see you)
Boogaloo dudes (I wanna relate to you)
Carry the news
All the young dudes (what dudes?)
Carry the news (I don't see any dudes, c'mon)
Boogaloo dudes (I wanna kiss you)
Carry the news
All the young dudes (hey you there, with the glasses)
Carry the news (I want you)
Boogaloo dudes (...)
Carry the news

then keep playing the chorus and fade out. I can't hear
any more of what the lead singer is saying. It's not
important anyway. Just make up some stuff.

Here's the ELECTRIC GUITAR ONLY for the ENTIRE SONG. The ENTIRE SONG wasn't available on
so I figured it would be good idea to tab it.
