             THE DUCK AND ROGER THE HORSE - Cardiacs                       
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: 
Mopô
From the album "On Land And In The Sea"

One of my all time favourite Cardiacs tunes! :D
There's a lot here, but it's not particularly difficult...just a lot to
remember...


Yeah, the words don't line up properly with the chords sometimes...

Duck say the horse is daft
Alright


Then the verse and chorus as before;

Sing with your heart and be satisfied, with mourning
Duck says you've disowned me

We are full of horses love
But we won't pull if you don't shove
You're faceless in this army

Sulking in the cupboard is a horsey going round
With his little wheel on the floor
Sulking in the cupboard is a DUCK

Mr. Flower, he's bent on fucking power
He grazed his face to claim his place
Then claimed he did some more


The rhythm for the next section is not shown, because I don't know
how to do it without having the tab stupidly long :P
After playing the lead of this once round, play the chords instead
for when it all kicks in for a second repetition.
