Song Title: The Last Song I Ever Write About A Girl

Tabbed by Richard McCulloch on 19/04/02, updated 21/04/02

This song kicks ass! The intro and verse are definitely
100% correct, and the chorus/interlude part sounds ok
when you play along with the cd, though there may be a
powerchord or two missing from there. Sorry if there is,
but if you spot something like this, PLEASE e-mail me
so I can fix it. My address is at the end of this tab

Anyway, enjoy.

A broken heart again today... CHORDS/LYRICS MAIN RIFF WITH VERSE POWERCHORDS x 2 F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G A broken heart again today F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G The flowers that I gave to you have withered all a - way F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G Just when I opened up my heart F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G The one you used to love came and ripped it right a - part CHORUS/INTERLUDE C#5 D#5 Why do I never seem to learn that C#5 D#5 love is wrong and girls are fucking evil A#5 C#5 I guess I'll never figure out A#5 C#5 D#5 E5+ What womankind is all about MAIN RIFF WITH VERSE POWERCHORDS x 2 [Though the first bar of this that you play, miss out the F5 at the start, because it's just the riff on it's own playing here, but then come in with the C5 in the usual place - listen to the cd if you're unsure what I' talking about] VERSE 2 F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G I heard your voice again today F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G I'm scarred by all the lies that were once promises you'd made F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G I lie in bed awake at night F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G And wonder what went wrong or even more just what went right CHORUS/INTERLUDE 2 C#5 D#5 Why do I never seem to learn that C#5 D#5 love is wrong and girls are fucking evil A#5 C#5 I guess I'll never figure out A#5 C#5 D#5 E5+ What womankind is all about VERSE POWERCHORDS x 2 [This is played the same way as the last time - by missing out the first F5 powerchord, but instead of having the riff on its here, the bass plays on its own for that part, until you come in again on the C5] Then the outro is pretty shitty to be honest - just a load of distorted noise and random drum clashes, so my advice to you if you want to play this song in your band is to make up a new ending, you'll be all the more talented for it! ADDITIONAL COMMENT I've actually just thought now that it would be easier to play the song in dropped d tuning, as you could play some of the chords with just one or two fingers instead of three [For those of you who play powerchords with two fingers, STOP! Playing with three gives you a much fuller sound and reduces any muting that you might get]. If you want me to explain this to you in more detail (the bit about playing the song in dropped d), then mail me at the address below, I'd appreciate the feedback.
