You know she comes around

From her head to the ground

You know she comes around here
Just about midnight
She makes me feel so good, lord
She makes me feel all right

The Tab file here is my own work and represents my interpretation of the song. Tab files with reference to any artist are not meant to be actual transcriptions of copyrighted material. All rights belong to the copyright holders.

Note: I have learned many songs that I do not think I could have learned without the help of Tab. It seems that breaking the songs down into their various parts (intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.) and writing the tab is part of my process of learning the songs and helps me remember them better.

Gloria - The Shadows of Knight
Gloria

Gloria is the first album by the Shadows of Knight, released in 1966. The Shadows of Knight are primarily known for their hit version of the Van Morrison penned Them band's "Gloria". At the same time, the band today is regarded as one of the original punk bands.

The band's association with "Gloria" has caused some to miscategorize them as one-hit wonders. One reviewer points out that their first album, and its follow-up, Back Door Men, represent far greater diversity: "(The Gloria album) positively rocks with a raw energy of a band straight out of the teen clubs, playing with a total abandon and an energy level that seems to explode out of the speakers. Equal parts Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Who, and snotty little Chicago-suburb bad boys, the Shadows of Knight could easily put the torch to Chess blues classics, which make up the majority of the songs included here. Their wild takes on "I Just Want to Make Love to You," "Oh Yeah," and "I Got My Mojo Working" rank right up there with any British Invasion band's version from the same time period
