Travis - Good Day To Die tab

Travis - Good Day To Die

From "Good Feeling", Written by Fran Healy & co.

No capo (*gasp*).

Intro:  Various noise, then D7 into...

First verse:

G            D        Em           B

where is your mother,  where is your father,


G          D          Em           B

two little children,  locked in a cupboard.


G        D            Em          B

Into the wide world,  high on the high wire,


G              D           Em                      D7           C,  D7

What would you give to fly away, away, away, away, awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay?


Same chord progression for the second verse:


Girl with the flower, boy with the hammer,
Lost in a forest, on another planet.
Find me the exit, find me the way home,
Find all the love they took away, away, away, away, away.

Chorus (coming off of D7):

         Em         D

Cos your head, is a brick wall,


         C           D

And your heart, is a football


         Em           D
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/t/travis/44922.html ]
And your eyes, broken windows,


         C           D           C

when you cry, it's a good day to die.

Solo (well-tabbed on other GDTD tabs), the chords are similar to the verse,
with a bit of a change:


By measure:


G, D, Em, B

G, D, Em, Em

G, D, Em, B

G, D, Em, Em


Then, D7 back into the chorus chords.
Once through the chorus normally, but instead of playing the last C transcribed above
go right back into the Em to begin the next time through the chorus. Then...


         Em         D

Cos your head, is a brick wall,


         C           D

And your heart, is a football


         Em           D

And your eyes (?), it's a good day...


Am,  Em,  Cadd9

          Today...


Am,  Em,  Cadd9

          Today...


Am,  Em,  Cadd9

          Today.......today......today.....

The outro seems to be messing back and forth with a C and a Cadd9.
Enjoy!  Hope this works better than the others.
