				The Fountainhead
				by The Bluetones
		Tabbed by Frederic Maquet  (

This is another great song of the "Expecting to Fly" album.  If you like
it, email me and tell me about it with corrections/comments...
I hope the intro is accurate enough, but it sounds good!  The whole song
is played with two guitars, but you can survive with just one!  The
rythm is
a bit hard though, so you'll have to listen to the song to get it right.

Verse 1: (play with 1st intro riff) -------- Em7 E Esus E Am- Am God knows I've tried, to bridge the gap, G A I've tried to be me, Em7 E Esus E Am- Am And time after time I've lied, just to say the things, G A You wanted to hear, Em7 E Esus E Am Am7 Am (Am7 is x02213) Look, look what I've done, look what I do, G A E Em7 E I'm starting to pull myself through, Esus E Am- Am G A D Hell could feasibly freeze, but in your eyes, I'll always be... Chorus 1: --------- F# G A D The Fountainhead, the boy whose thoughts keep running away F# G A (play this A as x0222x) And you know I'm riiight. Verse 2: (same chord progression as verse 1) -------- Em7 E Esus E Am- Am G A E Wasn't it you who said, I went looking, to open the eyes of my head And now I can see, from your mistakes, you're as blind as me God knows I try, God know I've tried, to be something more than I am Hell could feasibly freeze, but in your eyes I'll always be... Chorus 2: --------- Same as Chorus 1 Break: Plays basic riff, with lots of bass. ------ Verse 3: (The whole thing is played with the 1st intro riff) -------- Em7 E Esus E What can I say without being profound, Am- Am G A It's a game that we play, goes round and round Em7 E Esus E I shall stick to the rules and I won't stop a fool Am- Am G A And I won't be defied and I won't lose my cool, Em7 E Esus E Can't you see what I've done can't you see what I do? Am- Am G A It's not really unique but it's hopelessly cruel, Em7 E Esus E These are my decisions these are my mistakes G A (single strum) And I'll fall down again if that what it takes...
