Stereophonics - Word Gets Around Part Two tab

Album: Word Gets Around (Part 2)
Artist: Stereophonics
Tabbed by: Sian Clarke

As I mentioned in the first part of this tab, I couldn't fit all twelve songs onto the same
song file, so I had to split it into two parts, (Part 1) and (Part 2).
(Part 1) should be above the link to this part, but I could be wrong, if it's not there you'll
have to look for it if you want any of the first six songs.

Songs in this part:  7. Check My Eyelids For Holes
                     8. Same Size Feet
                     9. Last Of The Big Time Drinkers
                    10. Goldfish Bowl
                    11. Too Many Sandwiches
                    12. Billy Daveys' Daughter

Songs in the other part:  1. A Thousand Trees
                          2. Looks Like Chaplin
                          3. More Life In A Tramps Vest
                          4. Local Boy In The Photograph
                          5. Traffic
                          6. Not Up To You


I've listed all the chords and riffs used under each individual song.
I'm almost 100% sure that all these songs are right, but if you
disagree or have any comments, questions or corrections, or if you just want
to say hey, e-mail me at Sarah.lardy@virgin.net and I will try to reply to all.

(Riffs are indicated above the chord that is played with it)

KEY:
 b = bend string
 h = hammer on
 p = pull off
 /or\ = slide to numbered fret
 { = rest - no chord, silence unless there is a riff continuing above it
...= duration of a riff
