Here are some guitar tabs for Percy's Song...I'm pretty sure they
are right.

note: * means pluck G note on the E string, then an F# note on the same
string

Intro: A D A D A D A D (one beat each)

    A          f#m   D                A   *
Sad News, sad news, come to where I sleep
  E    bm          E
Turn, turn, turn again
        A          f#m           D       A  *
Sayin' one of my friends is in trouble deep
  E    bm          D            E
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain


 A             f#m            D          A   *
Tell me the trouble, tell me once to my ears
 E     bm         E     
Turn, turn, turn again
  A      f#m        D           A  *
Joliet Prison for ninety-nine years
 E     bm          D            E
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain


A crash on the highway threw a car into a field
Turn, turn, turn again
There were four people killed and he was at the wheel
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

But I know him as well as I know my own self
Turn, turn, turn again
And he wouldn't harm a life that belonged to someone else
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

That may be so said the jusge from the side of his mouth
Turn, turn, turn again
But the witness who saw it, he left little doubt
Turn, turn, to the wind and the rain

He may, he may have a sentence to serve
Turn, turn, turn again
But ninenty nine years he just does not deserve
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

Too late, too late, for his case it is sealed
Turn, turn, turn again
A sentence it is passed and it cannot be repealed
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

But he ain't no criminal, and his crime it is none
Turn, turn, turn again
And what happened to him could have happened to anyone
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

At that the judge jerked forward and his face it did freeze
Turn, turn, turn again
Sayin' would you kindly leave my office now please
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

I squinted my eyes and I stood up slow,
Turn, turn turn again
With no other choice except for me to go
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

I walked down the hall and I heard his door slam
Turn, turn, turn again
I walked down the stairs but I did not understand
Turn, turn to the wind and the rain

I played my guitar through the night and through the day
Turn, turn, turn again
But the only tune that my guitar would play
Was oh, how cruel the wind and the rain
