Tuning: Half-step down (Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb)

Prefab Sprout 
Lions in My Own Garden (Exit Someone) (1982) 
(McAloon)

The beautiful debut by one of my favourite bands: 
Prefab Sprout’s first single.

This tab sounds pretty original. That is because it is mostly a 
transcription of a tab by the songwriter Paddy McAloon himself:

The original is not very readable, so I tried to improve it in 
this respect and added some notes to the chords to make it 
sound good when played alone without a band.

The song has been reissued on: “38 Carat Collection”

CHORDS/SPECIAL VOICINGS
I had to give names to some of these chords which was not always easy, 
as they are rather idiosyncratic. Who has got better ideas? – 
I’m open for suggestions.

INTRO 
| C#m | D7/9 | C#m | D7/9 |

A        E                 [ch]Amaj7/F#[/ch]
Hey, I'm sorry if I go too fast
  A6/-5  E                            [ch]Amaj7/F#[/ch]
Tonight, let's pretend that this will last
B                          C#m7    D7/9     [ch]F#sus4/G#[/ch]
I've got a dream you would like to sleep on too

A       E                     [ch]Amaj7/F#[/ch]
Oh, I'm sorry to dwell on the past
A6/-5  E                     [ch]Amaj7/F#[/ch]
   I'd better say nothing at all
    B                               C#m7    D7/9     [ch]F#sus4/G#[/ch]
But I've got this friend who thinks he's in love with you

       A              E/G#           B/C#
And it doesn't sum it up to say he's singing the blues
       A              E/G#        B/C#
And whoever learnt to walk in somebody else's shoes?
     A           E/G#             B(add11)/C#
He's screaming because he's found something to lose

A             G#m7                  B            F#m
    So you're living in Eden where,   apples are good
A       G#m7                  B                F#m
    But every narrow miracle,   takes place on Earth
C#m        G#m7                  B                    F#m
Yes, the militia've arrived and    the percussion has come

        Amaj7        [ch]G#m7/F#[/ch]  B*          C#m   D7/9
And I’m pounding out messages loud on the drum
    Amaj7        [ch]G#m7/F#[/ch]      B*          C#m   D7/9
The rumours have started that we are both young
Amaj7           [ch]G#m7/F#[/ch] B*       C#m   D7/9
Lions in my own garden, exit someone

B                               C#m7      D7/9   [ch]F#sus4/G#[/ch]
That's what I'll shout when you just stay out of reach

       A              E/G#           B/C#
And it doesn't sum it up to say he's singing the blues
       A              E/G#        B/C#
And whoever learnt to walk in somebody else's shoes?
     A           E/G#             B(add11)/C#
He's screaming because he's found something to lose

       A              E/G#           B/C#
And it doesn't sum it up to say he's singing the blues
       A              E/G#        B/C#
And whoever learnt to walk in somebody else's shoes?
     A           E/G#             B(add11)/C#
He's screaming because he's found something to lose

        Amaj7        [ch]G#m7/F#[/ch]  B*          C#m   D7/9
And I’m pounding out messages loud on the drum
    Amaj7        [ch]G#m7/F#[/ch]      B*          C#m   D7/9
