Tuning: EADGBe


Title track from the album of the same name.
I have tabbed a few lead parts as well as chords, placing 
them below the appropriate bar.
Please listen to the song to get the timing right.
I have tried to synchronise the tab, chord names
and lyrics.  Apologies for any errors.  Corrections welcome.

(*missing lyric now added*)

Repeat music with these lyrics: "We hit the road to Hull Sad amps and smashed guitars Played badly at 'The Duke' To almost no applause. But someone made it worthwhile When smiling with bright eyes They gave me full attention And they took me by surprise. But today the feeling's gone. No, faded like a ghost. Last night I saw the future This morning there's no hope. And the words Ah, that I sung so clear Are now clouded By my tears Please be careful 'cause I'm an axe victim. Hung up on these silver strings Like sails Like seagulls cries Like church bells in the night."

Then comes the guitar solo. The guitar in the background during the beginning of the guitar solo is doing something like this:
