This by no means is a perfect tab, but I think this is good enough for now and may make later. I'm not sure how manageable the chords are for guitarist since I'm a pianist, but explain some of the chords in an attempt to rationalize my choices: //Roman Numerals in Parenthesis to make it a bit easier to transpose.// //'m' indicates minor, 'o' indicates fully diminished, 'om' indicates half diminished.// //!# indicates an explanation at the bottom.// //Feel free to email (bottom) me if you have questions.// //Hopefully I'm not being too patronizing.// ---Chords--- ***Verse*** Db (I) The yellow walls are lined with portraits Gbadd2 (IVadd2) And I've got my new red fetching leather jacket Bbom7 (viom7/#iio7? Not sure how to explain) All these poses such beautiful poses Ab9 (V9) Makes any boy feel like picking up roses Db There's never been such grave a matter Gbadd2 As comparing our new brand name black sunglasses Bbom7 All these poses such beautiful poses Ab9 Makes any boy feel as pretty as princes ***Bridge*** Ebmadd2 The green autumnal parks conducting Bo7 add 6 !1 And the city streets a wondrous chorus singing Bbom7 All these poses oh how can you blame me Ab9 Life is a game and true love is a trophy ***Chorus*** !2 Db Ab And you said Db Ab7/Gb Bb/F Watch my head about it Ab Db Ab7/Gb Bb/F Baby you said watch my head about it Ab My head about it Db Oh no oh no oh no Ab Db Oh no oh no no kidding //Chords repeated with other variations.// ***Verse*** Reclined amongst these packs of reasons For to smokes the days away into the evenings All these poses of classical torture Ruined my mind like a snake in the orchard I did go from wanting to be someone now I'm drunk and wearing flip - flops on Fifth Avenue Once you've fallen from classical virtue Won't have a soul for to wake up and hold you ***Bridge*** In the green autumnal parks conducting All the city streets a wondrous chorus Singing all these poses now no longer boyish Made me a man ah but who cares what that it ***Chorus*** And you said watch my head about it Baby you said watch my head about it My head about it Oh no oh no oh no Oh no oh no well you said Watch my head about it Baby you said watch my head about it My head about it Oh no oh no oh no Oh no oh no no kidding !3 !1. I'm not entirely sure how to explain this. The notes I hear are Ab, B, Db, D, and F. on the piano, I hear this: Left Hand: Rhythm: 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & Notes: Db F Ab F Ab Right Hand: Rhythm: 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & Notes: F B Ab D B Ab I would explain this as a #vio7 overlapping the I to create tension. !2. The chorus chords aren't completely correct, but they more or less work. It's mainly IV, V chords as the bass note steps up the scale for each new chord. !3. The final chord sounds like a suspension from Gbm/Db to Db major, seems to work as a cadence. If you have more to add or have questions, please email at PBlackII@live.com. I hope helps some people.
