                BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE                                       Australian Crawl

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I saw a request for this song, and hey why not it's a great party tune!

This was the "Crawl's" first single in approx. August 1979.

This song appeared on the first album "The Boys Light Up", and also on:

Crawl File (greatest hits);

The Final Wave (live last concert);

More Wharf (greatest hits).

I have quickly Tabbed out an approximation for the two main parts below.

Listen to the CD to get the timing, it is pretty straight forward.

The remainder of the song consists of the pattern below, once again listen

to the CD to get the feel of this.

|A / / / |Bm / / / |G / / / |D / / / |

Didn't have a guitar with me when I put the chord symbols over the words.

You may need to make some slight adjustments to these positions.

The intro riff can also be played up around the nineth fret if you like.
