The Box tab with lyrics by Johnny Flynn for guitar @ Guitaretab

Johnny Flynn – The Box tab

Hey everyone, this is my first tab. I saw there was nothing on here for this great song
by Johnny Flynn. I watched his video filmed by blogotheque to figure it out. If you
haven't seen the video, he's walking through a supermarket in Buenos Aires playing the 
song on his vintage guitar from the 1930's. Check it out on youtube, Johnny is the man. Anyway,
here it is. It's not perfect, but played like he does on the live version which I 
mentioned above:

Capo 2


Intro: D A G like this x 2:

------2-2------2-2-00000-------3-----3-2-|------3-3------3-3-33333-------3-----3-3-|------2-2------2-2-33333-------0-----0-2-|-----00-0-----00-0-33333-------0-----0-0-|-0-3---3--0-3---3--00000--0h2p0-0h2p0----|-------------------------3---------------|
Verses: Bm G7 Bm G7 Bm G7 A G D (Play Bm and G7 as barre chords, listen to song for rhythm, play the D with hammer-ons like the intro does) Chorus: D (hold this D out for majority of chorus, with hammer-ons as above), A, Bm, G7, D Bm G7 Living in a box by the rails Bm G7 Only thing you use, you don't fail Bm G7 When you live in a box by the rails A G D Don't comb your hair, don't comb your tail D Sweep my mess away D Leave my body, leave my bones D Leave me holding, leave my soul A Bm Leave me nothing I don't need at all G7 D Nothing I don't need at all Yay from the bins, in the parks Made off with the raps after dark Never left a trail, never made his mark When he gave me the raps after dark Calling all his friends, never made him sad With all the things he never had It only made them feel so bad For having the things he never had Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me holding, leave my soul Leave me nothing I don't need at all Nothing I don't need at all If you stay in that box overnight Don't get out til it gets light There's not much lost of the secret life It's never gone wrong and it's never gone right Now some more flowers grow The palm gets eaten by a few more throws An old man's box is full of bones See his footprints see his stones Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me holding, leave my soul Leave me nothing I don't need at all Nothing I don't need at all Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me holding, leave my soul Leave me nothing I don't need at all Nothing I don't need at all
