Chris Isaak - Oh Pretty Woman Guitar Chords

Chris Isaak

mellow gold

Chords: A, F#m, D, E, Dm, G7, C, Am
Pretty Woman (From the album "Beyond The Sun")

Tuning: Standard 

Comments: This is the kind of song that 99% of the time 
your gonna end up killing. Luckily Chris does a good job 
on his cover for "Beyond the Sun". Those of you who have 
been following Silvertone for years know, Chris has played 
this song several times live, though this is the first 
time it's been laid down on an official release. The best 
part is, Chris allows the song to ring true to Roy's 
original version, though it might be just a touch faster tempo wise.

If you know how to play Roy's original version, than you 
know how to play Chris's but for those of you who don't, 
have at it!
