Alarm - Deeside chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I looked all over for a good tab on this song and I found none, so I started with 
the chords. These are all correct for the live version of Deeside! An awesome song 
by an awesome band.
This is my latest version now, because in my last tab I forgot to include some things.

                             DEESIDE -- The Alarm
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Lil Bullseye
E-mail: lil.bullseye@aol.com

Tuning: Eb G# Db F# Bb Eb (down a half step)

INTRO: C F C F Am F G (play 2 times)
Strummed like this:
C/.///./F/.//C//./F/.//Am//./F/.//G//.//
The beats a little weird so look it up if you need extra help.
Every slash is a strum; every period is a rest

Also, to make it a little bit cleaner, the fingerings are like this:
C:
e-0
B-1
G-0
D-2
A-3
E-3

F:
e-1
B-1
G-2
D-3
A-3
E-X

And the rest is the same as far as I can tell. 
The rest of the parts use the usual fingerings.

VERSE
The verse is the same as the intro:
C F C F Am F G
And you play through it 2 times.

PRE-CHORUS: F Am F Am G
Played like this:
F/.///.///Am/./././F/.///.///Am/.G//.//////////////
                                          *FIRE FIRE FIRE!*

CHORUS: 
C G Am F Am G "To build the ships..."
C G F C Am G F "To be dealt the cards..."
C G F Am G "In this cruel world..."
*DOWN ON THE GROUND!*

FINALE~ F Em Dm C Am
"And (F)all a(Em)round the (Dm)world the (C)lights are (Am)going down..."

LYRICS:
Hey now!
*VERSE*
The iron gates clang in a steel mill town
A man breaks down to that unemployment sound
He takes a last walk down that old coast road
In the dying death throes of all that he knows
*PRE-CHORUS*
The sight of those men walking through the gates
Was like a lame pit pony at the end of it's days

(Fire, Fire, Fire)
*VERSE*
In a Deeside town eight thousand went down
In a February day in the driving rain
No winners just losers and cuts and bruises
As the picket lines fell, the industry died
*PRE-CHORUS*
There's still one question after all this time
Is a working man born to live and then die?

Fire Fire Fire!
*CHORUS*
To build the ships to set the sails
To cross the sea of fools
To be dealt the cards
To play our hand
To win or else to lose
In this cruel world that kicks a man when he's down

(Down to the ground)
(Hey now)
*VERSE*
And Lady Luck smiles on the few in this world
And I hope and I pray that she smiles on you
I ain't gonna preach, no I ain't gonna teach
I 'm just gonna sing about the things that I need
*PRE-CHORUS*
A little bit of love, a little bit of hope
A little bit of strength, some fuel for the fire

(Fire Fire Fire)
*CHORUS*
To build the ships to set the sails
To cross the sea of fools
To be dealt the cards 
To play our hand
To win or else to lose
In this cruel world that kicks a man when he's down.

(Down to the ground)
*PRE-CHORUS*
A little bit of love, a little bit of hope
A little bit of strength, some fuel for the fire

(Fire Fire Fire)
*CHORUS*
To build the ships to set the sails
To cross the sea of fools
To be dealt the cards
To play our hand
To win or else to lose
In this cruel world that kicks a man when he's down.
*FINALE~*
And all around the world the lights are going down.

As a note, I didn't include the intro parts above.
