			     R.E.S. - Cardiacs
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: The Mopô
From the albums "A Little Man And A House And The Whole World Window" and
"Special Garage Concerts Vol 2"

One of the greatest Cardiacs tunes of all time...took me forever to work
it out!

Main Riff

F G# Fe--------------------------------|B-6-------4-------4-------(6)----|G---5---5---5---5---5---5-(5)----|D-----7-------6-------6----------|A--------------------------------|E--------------------------------|
It is possible to play the keyboard lines if you sweep pick this, but it's a bit of a pain (for me at least) so I tend to play the bassline instead, hehe :P
e-------------------|B-------------------|G---------------10--|D----7-6--------10--|A--8-----6---6--(8)-|E----------8--------|
The verse alternates with this bassline and the one above;e--------------1---|B--------------1---|G------------------|D------------------|A------------------|E--1-2-3-4-3-2(1)--|
A stitch in time saves nine in time To stay alive 'cause we are so divine In my mind I can't stop dying I wish there was no stopping me now In the hope I'm to grow old I've been told to keep my head down to the ground It's like standing in the playground Looking at the ground trying not to notice All the kids around
Chorus D (C) F A# PM-------------|e--222-2------<5>--------------------|B--333-3--------------1---1-3---3----|G--222-2---<5>---<5>--2-2-2-3-3-3----|D--000-0----------------3-----3------|A------------------------------------|E------------------------------------|
The will to be kind is mine but That's the way we all go The people subsiding are always advising that That's the way we all go Verse Calling is craving is letting the rain in It peers at me and is it understanding? Ha! Holding me with all its derelict charm Rushing round me and slipping but never falling Down! "Give me something I don't need" My friend cried till his face bled really really red It stays here all my life, it fears towards me Chorus The will to be kind is mine but That's the way we all go The higher the chances the higher the climb, but That's the way we all go Then it descends into the long instrumental section...

Is everybody happy? Then follows the keyboard solo, on the Garage Concert vesion this is slowed down and is much easier to play on guitar, however I tend to play the regular guitar part when playing along with the original (as Tim does on the CD).

Then there's another keyboard solo then...

Gtr2 (octave up, not entirely sure of this though)e-----------------------------------|B--10---10-13---13-10---10-13-------|G-----10------12------10-------12---|D-----------------------------------|A-----------------------------------|E-----------------------------------|

Then it descends into chaos (or "more chaos") before the guitar solo,the time signatures here are pretty tricky...e--------------------------------------------------|B--------------------------------------------------|G--10--9-7-6------9-8---6--5--5--------------------|D------------9-10-----7--------7-7-6--7-6-8--7-8---|A--------------------------------------------------|E--------------------------------------------------|

Then after the solo comes this...e-----------------------------------------------------|B-----------------------------------------------------|G-----------------------------------------------------|D--10--12---------------------14-15----1718--16--18---|A----10--12-11-12-10-1010-10-------1514---------------|E---------------------------12-------------19--17--17-|

After which this riff is played again;Gtr1e--------------------|B--10-10-10-10-------|G--------------9-9---|D--------------------|A--------------------|E--------------------|
Gtr2e------11-12---------|B--14-------14-12----|G----14--------------|D--------------------|A--------------------|E--------------------|
And then comes the main riff with all the pauses...the bassline is shown. The pattern below repeats itself.
e----------------|----------|---------------------|------|------------|B----------------|----------|---------------------|------|------------|G----------------|----------|---------------------|------|------------|D----7-6---------|----7-6---|----7---7-6----------|----7-|----7-6-----|A--8-----6---6-8-|--8-----6-|--8---8-----6---6-8--|--8---|--8-----6---|E----------8-----|----------|--------------8------|------|------------|
Then the chorus kicks in again, this time with full chords. D C F A# D C F A#
D C F A# D C F A#e--------10-8-----8------------------------7---------|B-----10------8------10-----------7----6-8-----------|G---7-----------9-------9-10-9-7-----7-------10-9-7--|D----------------------------------------------------|A----------------------------------------------------|E----------------------------------------------------|
But I'm lost not for words or for kindness or sympathy That's the way we all go There's thousands of people just like me all over But that's the way we all go Then the chorus returns to the key used in the Little Man track
B A D Ge--2----0---2---3--------|B--4----2---3---3--2-0---|G--4----2---2---0--------|D--4----2---0---0--------|A--2----0-------x--------|E---------------3--------|
That's the way we all go Then there's the last part on the original and Garage versions, but not on the Little Man album... Em My hope day is forever coming closer D C A My hopes and fears are uncommon and it's he Bm Em Who asks for me now So I'll stay here until it's saving my life D C Bm Sing la la la la la la la C Outside!
e---------------------|B--7--------7--7-8-9--|G----7----7-----------|D------7--------------|A---------------------|E---------------------|
There it is...hope you enjoy it! :D
