XTC-Chalkhills and Children
Tabbed By: Matt Skeefe (pavmint@gmail.com)

The beautiful ending piece to "Oranges and Lemons" by Partridge and Company,
featuring some atmospheric jazz chords on the keyboards. This is how I play 
it acoustically. Below are my preferred voicings (Low E to High E), though
they are mostly barre chords, anyway. It's not as hard to memorize as you 

C: 8-10-10-9-8-x
Bbmaj7: 6-x-7-7-6-5
Fsus4: x-8-10-10-11-xFmaj7 (Verse): x-8-10-9-10-x
Eb: x-6-8-8-8-x Dm9: x-5-3-5-3-0
Ebmaj7: x-x-1-3-3-3Em: x-x-2-0-0-5 (Open high E if you can't stretch)
Fmaj7 (Pre-Chorus): x-x-3-5-5-5 Ebmaj7 in Chorus: x-6-8-7-8-6 Dm7: x-5-7-5-6-5
