Tuning: Standard

Prefab Sprout
Desire As (1985)
(Paddy McAloon)

From: "Steve McQueen"

I find it utterly impossible to play this alone on one guitar and still 
preserve the textures of the original. It probably wasnít meant to be 
played like that, either.

Itís still very beautiful and what is here might give you some idea to work 
out your own version. And if you by any chance find a name (and a possible 
root) for the last triad in the intro and the chorus, please let me know!

The tuning of the original recording is somewhere in between things.

         Emaj7            Ebm            F#            [?]
I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them
I've got six things on my mind you're no longer one of them

              B/C#            G#m7/9           
They were the best times, the harvest years 
                     F#          Emaj7
With jam to lace the bread
   B/C#      G#m7/9           
So goodness, goodness knows why I'd 
                F#          Emaj7
Throw it to the birds
F#        Emaj7/F#
 But there it is, 
F#     Emaj7/F#
 And there we are
    F#                       B/D#                   G#m7 Gdim
And all I ever want to be is far from the eyes that ask  me

B/F#             G#m7         C#m7/9         A     F#dim
 In whose bed you gonna be and is it true you only see
  Emaj7[/G#]             Ebm                      F#         [?]
Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?
  Emaj7/G#               Ebm                      F#         [?]
Desire as a self-figured creature who changes her mind ?

             B/C#        G#m7/9
It's perfect as it stands 
            F#               [Emaj7/G#]
So why then crush it in your perfect hands ?
  Emaj7/G#               Ebm                      F#         [?]

   B/C#        G#m7/9           
So tell me you must have thought 
                F#
It all out in advance
   B/C#     G#m7/9           
Or goodness, goodness knows why you'd 
                F#
Throw it to the birds
             B/C#             G#m7/9           
You mock the good things, you play the heart strings, 
                 F#
Play them one by one

F#        Emaj7/F#
 But there it is, 
F#     Emaj7/F#
 And there we are
    F#                       B/D#                   G#m7 Gdim
