Tuning: EADGBe


Title track from the album of the same name.
I have tabbed a few lead parts as well as chords, placing 
them below the appropriate bar.
Please listen to the song to get the timing right.
I have tried to synchronise the tab, chord names
and lyrics.  Apologies for any errors.  Corrections welcome.

Repeat music with these lyrics:


"We hit the road to Hull
Sad amps and smashed guitars
Played badly at 'The Duke'
To almost no applause.

But someone made it worthwhile
When smiling with bright eyes
They gave me full attention
And they took me by surprise.

But today the feeling's gone.
No, faded like a ghost.
Last night I saw the future
This morning there's no hope.

And the words
Ah, that I sung so clear
Are now clouded 
By my tears

Please be careful
'cause I'm an axe victim.
Hung up on these silver strings
Like sails
Like seagulls cries
Like church bells in the night."
