SONG: On Mercury (ALBUM: By The Way)
ARTIST: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Transcribed by ROB        [wirrmi@yahoo.de]

Nice ska sounding tune by the Peppers!

Standard tuning (EADGBE)

Chords used
Bm	(224432)
G	(355433)
A	(577655)
F#	(244322)
D	(557775)

Intro
Bm, G, A, F# 

There are actually two guitars playing, ad I'm not quite sure
if the  "offbeat-guitar" plays the chords as they're tabbed,
but the other one does.

Have Phun!

Verse: (same chords every verse)
=======

Bm
I've got myself 
       G          A        	
In a masochistic hold 
F#	
Why don't you let go 
Bm
Shake it off 
        G            A
Just to redirect my flow 
F#
Come on let's go 
Bm
Sit up straight 
         G
I'm on a double date 
        A 
I've got to find my way 
         F#
Into the light, heavy, middle weight 
Bm                  G
We don't stop rock around the clock 
     A
Motor mouthing off 
             F#
In front of every other road block 

Pre Chorus: (same chords every Pre Chorus)
===========
G
Come again and tell me 
            F#
What you're going thru 
G
Like a girl who only knew 
    F#      
Her child was due 

Chorus: (same chords every Chorus)
==========
Bm          D
Memories of everything 
   A              G  
Of lemon trees on mercury 
Bm              D
Come to me with remedies 
     A              G
From five or six of seven seas 
Bm         D              A
You always took me with a smile 
           G
When I was down 
Bm          D
Memories of everything 
     A    F#
That blew thru 


Verse:
=======

Looking up into 
A reverse vertigo 
What an undertow 
Give it up 
Another stubborn scorpio 
Come on, let's go 

Sit up straight 
I'm on a double date 
I've got to find my way 
Into the light, heavy, middle weight 
We don't stop rock around the clock 
Motor mouthing off 
In front of every other road block 

Pre Chorus:
==========

Come again and tell me 
What you're going thru 
Like a girl who only knew 
Her child was due 
To the moon she gave 
Another good review 
Turn around and look at me 
It's really really you

Chorus
=======

Middle Part: Same as intro

Verse:
======

Sit up straight.....
