The Maccabees - Toothpaste Kisses chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey there, I was really tired of seeing bad tabs for toothpaste kisses, because 
it's such a great song. Hopefully my version is a bit better! If not, leave a 
comment, if so, rate it 5 star so people can use it.

Please note that the D and E chords in the intro are the bar chord, which you can 
get from playing a A major shape, with the bar on the fifth (D) and 7th (E) fret.

Intro: G, Cm, G, Cm, D, G, F#m, Bm, E

You'll have to listen to the intro to get the timing right, it might sound a 
little wrong at the start, but this version isn't! 


A          C#m
Cradle Me, I'll Cradle You
A                    C#m
I'll win your heart, with a whit-woo
D                            G    F#m
Pulling shapes just for your eyes,
        Bm                     E (let ring)
so with toothpaste kisses and lines

i'll be yours and you'll be


A            C#m
lay with me, ill lay with you
A                   C#m
we'll do the things that lovers do
D                   G    F#m
put the stars in our eyes,
Bm                                E
and with heart shaped bruises and late night kisses divine

Then, there's the solo, which you can play just for fun, because it's easy (it 
gets played more than once, so you can go from strumming to the solo a few times 
if you like:

e|----16---16-14-16-9----16-14-16--5---16-14-16--10--9-10-9-7-7-7-7-7-7-7----|
B|-14------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|------9h11------4h6-------9h11------4h6-| 
D|-9h11-------4h6------9h11-------4h6-----| 
A|----------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------|

Instead of using 4h6 on the D and G string, you can 9h11 on the A and D string, if 
you find it easier. But I like doing it this way. 

The chords and the solo go hand in hand. He also whistles with the intro chords 
before this next bit. 

After the solo, there's some more singing:


 
A               C#m
Stay with me, ill stay with you
A              C#m         D
Doing  things that lovers do
D               F#m    Bm
What else to do-oooooooooooooooo



Repeat intro and whistle.
