"stretch out and wait" by the smiths
from the album "louder than bombs"
tab'ed by stephen cheng (cheng@utdallas.edu)

this one sounds rather nice on an accoustic guitar and, as there is no
instrument break, particularly suitable as a solo. the song is in 6/8
time, and each dash of each bar denotes 1/4 note, except the first and
last dash of each bar, which are used 'cos it looks nicer. the tab more
or less indicates the chord positions, so you should strum through the
song as you sing along. ..oh, and you don't need to capo! wow! ;)

on the high rise estate what's at the back of your mind? on a three-day debate on the high rise estate what's at the back of your mind? two icy-cold hands conducting the way it's the eskimo blood in my veins amid the concrete and clay and general decay nature must still find a way so ignore all the codes of the day let your juvenile impulses sway this way and that way and this way and that way god, how sex implores you
