KT Tunstall - Uummannaq song
----------------------------

I couldn't find a tab or chords for this incredible song of KT's new album, 
so I decided to make one myself, with a little help from the KT Tunstall forum 
(thanks to 'smash275').

For this song KT uses a 2-string guitar on which she actually just hits one note 
each time (the bass note of course).
In the verse she hits each note and mutes it right after that. 
This tab below is an indication of the tune she's playing. 
I think B D E part is quite accurate, but I'm not sure about the B A G A and A A parts. 
If anyone's got suggestions please comment.
In the verse and bridge she strums each note. 
I prefer to just strum the entire song (on acoustic guitar) in the chords given below, 
but since not everyone might agree I put this little tab together. 
Hope you'll like it.
Enjoy!

[Verse 1]
          Bm
Hold your fire
           D            E            Bm
I'm coming out and I'll tell you the truth 
      D         E        Bm
I was trying to raise my roof
        A 
Did you see it
       G      A  Bm
That I needed to prove
        D       E      Bm
That my stinger always stays 
               D         E        Bm         
You said she's beautiful when she plays
      D              E      A 
Did I hit you in the proper place 
A
   Suddenly 

[Chorus 1]
G          A                    F#m
I, oh well I could live in this town
     G 
Five cold years before I
    A                    F#m 
Yes I could live in this town
G                 
Before I head for home 

Bm D E (2x)

[Verse 2]
        Bm
It's my turn 
         D         E         Bm 
With the spotlight burning a hole
       D            E       Bm  
But my bird-heart's turning cold 
       A           G     A   Bm  
As the temperature rises all around
       D          E       Bm
To the sound of a ticking bomb
              D        E           Bm
And then it's not just showing off here
         D       E               A 
You know there's something going on here 
      A
Going on here 

Suddenly 


[Chorus 2] 
G          A                    F#m
I, oh well I could live in this town
     G 
Five cold years before I 
    A                    F#m
Yes I could live in this town 
G
Five cold years
    A                    F#m 
Yes I could live in this town
      G
Five cold years before I
     A                    F#m 
Well I could live in this town
G 
Before I head for home 


[Bridge]
(mute)
And considered it odd 
            Bm       
That I ever stayed 
     A 
ever stayed
            Bm
That I ever stayed 
     A
ever stayed
            Bm       
That I ever stayed 
     A 
ever stayed
            Bm
That I ever stayed 
     A
ever stayed
              Bm
You know that feeling you get 
         E             D   
when you don't want to leave 
     Bm
That feeling you get 
         E             D   
when you don't want to leave 
     Bm
That feeling when you don't want to leave 
Bm
    Suddenly


[Chorus 3] 
G          A                    F#m
I, oh well I could live in this town
     G 
Five cold years before I 
    A                    F#m
Yes I could live in this town 
G
Five cold years
    A                    F#m 
Yes I could live in this town
      G
Five cold years before I
     A                    F#m 
Well I could live in this town


[Outro]
G            A F#m G
  Uummannaq
G            A F#m G
  Uummannaq
G 
Before I head for home 
(mute)
And considered it odd 
That I ever stayed
