Elizabeth My Dear - The Stone Roses Power Tab
Downloads & Mirrors
A short ditty based on the traditional English ballad "Scarborough Fair", in which the Roses hint at wanting to depose the Queen of England. John Squire's guitar makes a sound like a gunshot during the outro. The Roses anti-royalist stance was greeted with outrage at the time from Britain's tabloid newspapers, with MPs trying to get them banned from TV after Ian Brown said he fantasised about putting a blanket over the Queen Mother's head.
