             PARADISE CITY - Guns N' Roses
Tabbed by: Vinny

Now you'll have to find out by yourself what rhythm do you want to play, for example in
the intro bit you can only strum the chords once...but if you are playing by yourself
like on an acoustic then it may not sound all that impressive...so what I do is play
the chords,
 G C in (D D UDUDUDUD DD) each and then
 F (D D) C (D D) G (D D UDUD) 
adding lil' dead notes before switching to the next chord, and I swear the rythm
changes every time I play.
So figure out the pattern you'll enjoy strumming for this song!

Rhythm A :-
Rhythm for the parts before the verses and in the verses...
G5 -(DDUD) -Strike Damp Notes- F5 -(UDU) C5 -(D) Bb5 -(D) x3
C5- (DUDUDDUD)
C5-Bb5-G-F

Intro: Play G (Open) slide your strumming finger/pick from the low E string to the
higher e..going through one string at a time
then play G (Barre) C  F  C  G  x2

Play the chorus part with the into rhythm


[Chorus]

G (Open)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C
Where the grass is green
 C
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G (Open)
Oh, won't you please take me home
G (Barre)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G
Oh, won't you please take me home


Play: (Since no singing is required here you can strum the chords once)

Just an urchin livin' under the street

I'm a hard case that's tough to beat
    G5
I'm your charity case

Take it to the end of the line

Rags to riches

Or so they say
    Bb5
You gotta
G5                    F5  C5     Bb5
Keep pushin' for the fortune and fame
G5
You know it's, it's all a gamble
F5        C5     Bb5
When it's just a game
G5           F5           C5    (Strum a bit on C5 with frequent damping)

Strapped in the chair of the city's gas chamber

Why I'm here, I can't quite remember
G5                            F5        C5 Bb5
The surgeon general says it's hazardous to breathe

I'd have another cigarette

Now he's a court jester
F5     C5     Bb5
With a broken heart

He said turn me around
    F5      C5          Bb5
And take me back to the start

I must be losing my mind
         C5       (Strum a bit on C5 with frequent damping)
