Drones – Shark Fin Blues chords

Band: The Drones
Song: Shark Fin Blues
Album: Wait Long by the River and the Bodies of Your Enemies Will Float by
Tabber: Andrew Biles

At the bottom of the page I have written out an idea of what the rhythm
guitar does during this song.  The timing and voicings in the tab are not 
perfect so you will have to experiment a bit, but it's a decent basis.

The intro appears to be based around the chords I've tabbed out but, again,
you'll probably need to try a few hammer-ons and occasionally adjust your 
finger positions.
The outro is also picked around the chords provided.

Be sure to have a good distortion pedal at the ready and your whammy bar
attached.  It does sound great on acoustic too, though.

Standard tuning: E, A, D, G, B, e


A E Standing on the deck I watch my shadow stretch
G D the sun pours my shadow upon the deck
A E the waters licking round my ankles now
G D there ain't no sun shine way way down
A E I see the sharks in the water like slicks of ink
G D well, there's one there bigger than a submarine
A E as he circles I look in his eyes
G D I see Jonah in his belly by the camp fire light
A E see the albatross up in the windy lofts
G D he gets to beating his wings while he sleeps it off
A E I hear the jettisoned cries from his dream unkind
G D get to whippin' my ears like a riding crop
A E Well, the captain once as able as a fink daddy
G D he's now laid up in the gallery like a dried out mink
A E He's laying dying of thirst and he says or I think
G D we're gonna be alone from here on in
E well you are all my brothers
D and you have been kind
E D but what were you expecting to find?
E now your eyes turn inwards
Bm countenance turns blank
C and I'm floating away on a barrel of pain
E5 it looks like nothing but the sea and sky remain
=break= (A, E7, G, D x 4)
A E nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
G D nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah (x4)
A E A harpoon's shaft is short and wide
G D a grappling hook's cracked and dry
A E I said, why don't you get down in the sea
G D turn the water red like you want to be?
A E 'Cause if I cry another tear I'll be turned to dust
G D the sharks won't get me but they don't feel loss
A E keep one eye on the horizon man, you best not blink
G D they're coming fin by fin until the whole boat sinks
A Efin by fin
G Dfin by fin
A Efin by fin
G Dfin by fin by fin by fin
