The The - December Sunlight chords

      
This is the tab to the song "December Sunlight", a song by The The off their
2000 album "NakedSelf". It's extremely simple, just 4 chords played 
repeatedly. It's originally played on a baritone guitar, so it won't sound
 quite the same on a normal guitar, but close enough. 
Also, the interludes between verses are a guitar effect you can't exactly 
reproduce, so I usually play a quick bounce off of each chord.

The chords are as follows:

C Bb Ame---0---- e--x---- e--0----B---1---- B--x---- B--1----G---0---- G--3---- G--2----D---2---- D--3---- D--2----A---3---- A--1---- A--0----E---x---- E--x---- E--x----
Intro: C Bb Am C
C BbThe early morning sun lit up her room
Am CBut it wasn’t just a change in the weather
C BbShe’d read it in her stars and now she felt it in her heart
Am CLife was gonna start getting better
CAnd there was a time when she would pray
BbThat each teardrop that rolled down her face
Am CWould represent a day of pain for him
C BbBut she’s changing the way she feels
Am CAbout wasting her time and tears
C Bb Am CCried out, cried out, cried out
C Bb Am CCried out, cried out, cried out
(interlude)
C BbAnd all the tricks and all the lies
AmHe tried to pull over her eyes
CKept running through her mind
C BbShe looks back in disbelief
AmIn confusion and in grief
CAt what his secrecy was revealing
CYou can scream into the pillow
BbYou can pray into the night
AmBut you can’t switch off your feelings
CLike you’d switch out the light
C BbBut she’s changing the way she feels
Am CAbout wasting her time and tears
C Bb Am CCried out, cried out, cried out
C Bb Am CCried out, cried out, cried out
(interlude)
C BbAnd now these winter skies
AmTurn blue and bright
CAnd she feels alive
CAnd wants to drink every kiss
BbMake up for what she’s missed
Am CAnd wipe him out of her mind
C BbSome day he’ll have to grow up
AmAnd come clean, and listen to the screams
COf his own conscience
CCry out, cry out, cry out
BbCry out, cry out, cry out
AmCry out, cry out, cry out,
CCry out, cry out, cry out...
