Warren Zevon – Werewolves of London

Warren Zevon – Werewolves of London (Chords)

Dead simple this one. There are only three chords (D, C and G) repeated over and over again.

If you want something a bit more challenging, the piano riff fits quite nicely on the uke too.

    I know it’s a bit late… but if you can play this you can also play “One of those things” from Dexys Midnight Runners third album – the superb Don’t Stand Me Down.

    Says Kevin Rowland: “Basically , I’m amazed and quite embarrassed at my arrogance when I hear this – I stole the riff totally from Warren Zevon’s ‘Werewolves of London’ after hearing it on the radio. I didn’t care that it was obvious and I ignored the fact that danger that it might be detected … he now rightfully owns a portion of the song.”

    It’s also the only song I know that mentions the Sandanista and Keith Chegwin. :)

    Crikey, it’s a total rip off. Thanks for that, deemikay.

    This is awesome! Suggested strumming patterns?

  9. Woodshed May 18th, 2011 10:02 am

    Katie: I’d go with:

    d – d – d u d u

    once each for D and C. And just d u d u etc for the G.

    I feel like the lyrics should be changed to Werewolves of Hawaii
