                             GIRAFFE - David Tattersall
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mit_
E-mail: ms_chsjb@yahoo.com

Tuning: standard


there is a capo on fret 2
there is a bass line that compliments, which i have not really provided.

    D                  G             Bm          A

e-|-2~--3-2-0-h2/p0--------------------------------------------|
B-|-3~--3-3-3--------3-3~~-----------7~----------5~------------|
G-|--------------------0~~-----------7~----------6~------------|
D-|-0~~--------------------------------------------------------|
A-|----------------------------------------------4~(4-4-4-4)---|
E-|--------------------3~~(3-3-5-5)--7~(5-5-5-5)---------------|

repeat this three times for the intro and then just the plucked chord variations (the D, 
G, Bm, A variations) without the pulloffs/hammerons for the versus which go:

D                    G                Bm          A
I'm no better at this double dating than I am at roller skating,
D                      G                   Bm        A
I stole my best friends money to play on the arcade machines,
D                 G              Bm                    A                 D
We got on like a ton of bricks, weighed down by your million things you made me laugh.


-chorus:

G                       D        A
Looked like a giraffe, in the morning,
          D~ G                D~ G
with your long legs, and your long neck
          D    A              D    G
with your long legs, and your long neck,
       A
in the morning
       D
in the morning

-

then back to the intro tune (with some extra riffs that are:)

second verse:
D                    G            Bm              A
Shipwreck breaching every heal, I've got nothing left thats real,
D            G                   Bm  A                  D
Slowly we collapsed on the floor, I kissed you and you made me laugh

-chorus:

G                       D        A
Looked like a giraffe, in the morning,
          D~ G                D~ G
with your long legs, and your long neck
          D    A              D    G
with your long legs, and your long neck,
       A
in the morning

fade out


a lot of the chord changes are mid-word with how long he holds 'long' and such, if you 
know the song you can figure it out easily.
h= hammer on p= pull off  s= slide,

again, implied chord variations for verses (and chorus) are:

     D    G     Bm    A
e-|--2---------------------|
B-|--3----2-----7-----5----|
G-|-------0-----7-----6----|
D-|--0---------------------|
A-|-------------------4----|
E-|-------3-----7----------|




this is my first tab i think, at least my first in close to ten years, so  i hope it is 
clear, helpful and accurate.
you can play it with just the basic  intro and chords if you'd like of course, i just 
thought that i would be thorough and include (most) all the little riffs and such.
this is a beautiful song from a beautiful album by an incredible artist.
