Porcupine Tree - London tab

"Recorded on 22nd January 1997, this was a simple acoustic guitar / voice demo recorded
live with just one piano overdub. It never went any further, but the lyrics were
recycled for Don't Hate Me (from Porcupine Tree's "Stupid Dream" album) later that 
year." - Steven Wilson on SoundCloud

Standard Tuning
Capo 1

Contrary to popular belief, this song does not actually use the same chords as Waiting,
so I decided to figure them out. The song requires quite a bit of stretching across the
fingerboard, so if you don't have big enough hands, you'll have to figure out an 
alternate way of playing it.

-This tab is relative to the capo.
-The bracketed numbers by the chords differentiate between chords shapes.
-I've only marked one of the hammer-ons because the rest are fairly easy to figure out.

VERSE

Gmadd9(1)        Gm6(1)        Gm*
     A light snow is falling on London

Gmadd9(1)    Gm6(1)            Gm
     All sign of the living has gone

Gmadd9(1)          Gm6(1)         Gm
     The last train pulls into the station

Gmadd9(1)              Gm6(1)          Gm
     And no one get off and no one gets on

***For every instance of this chord (Gm) in the verse, hammer-on the second fret to the
fourth on the fourth (D) string. (xx2222 to xx4222)***


CHORUS

Gmaug5       Gmaj7  Gm        Gmadd9(2)
     I search  inside my head

Gmaug5       Gmaj7   Gm          Gmadd9(2)
     Helps me     remember the day

Gmaug5                     Gmaj7
     That the taxi never came

          Gm6(2)  Gm6/9       Gmaug5      Gm6(2)
So I walk o-----------n in the rain

VERSE 2

One light burns in a window
It guides all the shadows below
Inside the ghost of a parting
And no one is left just the cigarette smoke
