Song: Sitting on a Fence
Artist: The Housemartins
Album: London 0 Hull 4 (1986)
Tabbed By: Alex Blackburne

Pretty simple song, although I recommend that you listen
to the actual track to get the timings for the Chorus as
the chords are only played at certain times. 

Intro
Gm / Cm / F / F  (x2)

Verse
              Gm                 Cm                 F
Sitting on a fence is a man who sees no sense in fighting
              Gm                 Cm               F
Sitting on a fence is a man who sees no sense at all
              Gm                 Cm                  F
Sitting on a fence is a man who strokes his twenty beards
              Gm                 Cm               F   
Sitting on a fence is a man who only drinks real ale

Pre-Chorus
         Gm    Cm              F
But the real problem with this man
       Gm      Cm            F
Is he says he canít when he can
       Eb                       Bb
Heíd rather not get his hands dirty
       Eb                       D
Heíll still be there when heís thirty

Chorus
   Gm             Cm            
I told myself to keep my mouth shut
        F
But I still end up saying if and but
   Gm             Cm
I lied to myself right from the start
          F 
And Iíve just worked out that Iím falling apart
