Notes
-----

The main part is played on a steel string acoustic guitar, tuned normally.
The acoustic is double tracked (separate the channels to hear this clearly).
Keep a continual up\down strumming pattern going, as shown. An electric slide
guitar joins in during the first chorus. I have tabbed the slide guitar part
with the 5th string tuned up 2 frets to B, although you could just as easily
play this part with the 2nd string tuned down 2 frets to A, and then move all
the slide tab up two frets. I'd appreciate help on this aspect, as I have little
slide guitar experience. The CD is very neatly channeled - the slide guitar part
is separated entirely onto the right channel, if you need to hear it clearly.

------ Lyrics ------ Once upon a time, not too long ago, took a day out in Manchester. We all fall down - there's not enough hours in our day. Played a bit of football, fell into the union, barged our way into the toilet with a kung-fu king - there's not enough hours in our day. I remember seeing someone, dressed in a suit, looking like a lunatic. We all fall down - there's not enough hours in our trip. Well, academy cartwheels breaking your hands, "We got lovely posters for sale." And we all fall down - there's not enough hours in our day. We like lovin', yeah - I don't know why we share. We like lovin', yeah - I don't know why we share. Finally made our way back to the train, rolling in at Sheffield tonight. And it all falls down - there's not enough hours in our life. So try and lose my way, wait at the station, whippin' Picadilly tonight. And it all falls down - there's not enough hours in our life. We like lovin', yeah - I don't know why we share. We like lovin', yeah - I don't know why we share.
