Mott The Hoople - Halfmoonbay tab

Half Moon Bay - Mott The Hoople.

This is a song that sounds really complex and strange but is actually made up of lots of fairly simple but 
bits. Although one of the more unknown Mott The Hoople songs, it's probably one of my favourites.

Intro:

    F#        E          B

G|---11---------9--------------|D|-------11--------9-----------|A|-----------9--------7---2----| (Hold last note)E|-----------------------------|
Repeat 16 times. Verse: Play chord progression on each line of each verse. F# (9th Fret) E (7th Fret) B(2nd Fret) Well, the colours cross my mind Anyway And the feelings that I find So very hard to say. I'm gone with the rain Making out That you never felt the same You are in doubt. Chorus: Play chord progression on each line. F# (2nd Fret) E (open) B(2nd Fret) Well, ................... .......................... And the spell was broken in two... Fill I:
G|---11---------9--------------|D|-------11--------9-----------|A|-----------9--------7---2----|E|-----------------------------|
Verse: Too soon my eyes grow dim I try To recognise the figures Drifting by. And too late, the sane man comes With the key I fight the loneliness It just ain't me. Now the evening bows To the night And I feel the world go down Before my eyes And recklessly I'm running round Cos' I tried to find another Name so proud. Chorus: Hey y'know, There's someone who seems like you in every way Yeah, I'm gonna search, I'm gonna search, I'm gonna search every day. Strange piano Interlude: Whirring noise, then... Fill II:
E|-------------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------4---------|G|---11---------9---------------4-----4------|D|-------11--------9---------4-----------4---|A|-----------9--------7---2------------------|E|-------------------------------------------|
Repeat 3 times then drums and backing chords kick in. Fill III:
G|---11---------9--------------|D|-------11--------9-----------|A|-----------9--------7---2----|E|-----------------------------|
Repeat 8 times Verse: Many years ago In my past I realised my dream would never last And constantly The letters fade And I sense the better half Has already played And the colours cross my mind Anyway And the feelings that I find So very hard to say Now gone with the rain Making out That you never, never felt the same You are in doubt You're still in doubt...... Andrew Jones. 2001.
