Amy Winehouse - You Know Im No Good tab

    ________________________
   / Amy Winehouse         /  This song was the one that really convinced me
  / You Know I'm No Good  /  what an amazing singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse is.
 / Back to Black         /  Such a catchy song and such rich lyrics!
/_______________________/

In this song there are three layers of guitar, and I'll notate them separately.

 Chorus (brass): out




********************************************************************************
* 2nd: The clean, heavily reverbed electric guitar panned in the right side.
*      Notice that the two strums of each chord is on 2 and 3+.
       Strum in a short staccato, that means immediately mute the chord,
       in order for the reverb to ring out clearly.

 LYRICS
**********
Meet you dowstairs in the bar and hurt
Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt
You say "What did you do with him today?"
and sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray
'Cause you're my fella,my guy
Hand me your Stella and fly
By the time I'm out the door
You tear men down like Roger Moore

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told you I was trouble
You know that I'm no good

Upstairs in bed with my ex boy
He's in a place, but I can't get joy
Thinking on you in the final throes
This is when my buzzer goes
Run out to meet you, chips and pitta
You say "when we married"
'Cause you're not bitter
"There'll be none of him no more"
I cried for you on the kitchen floor

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told you I was trouble
You know that I'm no good

Sweet reunion Jamaica and Spain
We're like how we were again
I'm in the tub, you on the seat
Lick your lips as I soap my feet
Then you notice likkle carpet burn
My stomach drop and my guts churn
You shrug and it's the worst
Who truly stuck the knife in first

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told you I was trouble
You know that I'm no good
