Talk Show Host

Just a simple arrangement for an acoustic guitar

(Capo 1)

The song is pretty much just Bm, G then Em

main riff
To play this, I play the open A string and finger a Bm bar chord to play the second
note, that way your fingers are already in place for the rest of the riff. I've put the rest
of the chord in brakets as it's handy to keep it fretted while ad libbing. For the last 
note on this, it's easier to take your index finger away from the bar chord to fred the E
on the the 2nd fret as this note is left to ring instead of playing a full chord anyway.


the next part is when Tom sings "the birds" and plays part of a G5 chord (I think, i'm
not clued up on proper names) and then moves down to an E. As there's no real chord
played in the album version, strumming can be flexible.


I want to
I want to be someone else or I'll..
Floating upon the surface for
      G5     Em       G5     Em        G5
The birds,       the birds,      the birds

Follow that pattern for the rest of the song

verse 2
You want me, well fucking well come and find me
I'll be waiting with a gun and a pack of sandwiches
And nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

verse 3
You want me, well, come on and break the door down
You want me, fucking come on and break the door down
I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready...
