Subject:       TAB : Charity by Skunk Anansie

This is my attempt at transcribing Charity by Skunk Anansie.  It's
the first time I've sent anything to you, so i hope I'm doing it
right.  The spacing may not appear right as I send this to you, it
was written in New Courier font, I think.  If there is a better way
to write tab please reply.

First Verse

  A      C#m     A           C#m
  Why do I sense benevolence,

  A         C#m        A             C#m
  You stand tall at my great expense,

  G                                         F#
  Thick words of gratitude, what a price to pay,

  G                                       F#
  Stuck in my throat, I sell every word I say.

Chorus (w/ fig 1)

  N.C.                  A
  But I don't want your charity,

C#m           A
  Twisting me round.

C#m                 A
  I don't want your charity,

  Keeping me down.

(Play Riff x4)

Second Verse

  A        C#m        A           C#m
  Why does your world keep burying,

  A            C#m         A             C#m
  Gorging much deeper than it's ever been,

  G                                F#
  Rubbing still harder, salt on my heart,

  G                                       F#
  Licking my burns while I grovel in your dirt.

(Play Chorus)

(Play Riff x2)


  You pity me with your tasteless gestures,

  Gratitude for kind,

  But your bludgeoned, intentioned objectives

                    G                         F#
  Are screwing with my mind, screwing with my mind.

(Next chorus is with bass only)

(Play riff x7 with lyrics from chorus)

(End with some mucking around on the verse chords).
