Guitar Tab : Cornish Town

Written by John Head
Tabbed by S. McNally

(Tuned down half step on record)

Verse 1
(D)     Am                  G
Because one he changed in island gale
      C              Am      
And in Dingle the land as far
   C    D
as Cunnamagh
    Am          G        
And somehow you found that strange
        C              Am
It isn’t hard to understand
            C          D
It’s just a different land

Chorus
(D)           G          C       D
It’s like you said close your eyes
             G     C        D
And come and cross my street
     G          C          D 
And I will take you there
            G          C
If you will come with me
                                 Am        C         D
But there’s an accordance with a psalm that says come on

Verse
And what was wrong with the choice you made
If I don’t want to set it down
In a Cornish town
And what was wrong with loves that came
Well nothing to be true
When love’s was too

Chorus
Like when you said close your eyes
And come and cross my street
And I will take you there
If you will come with me
But there’s an accordance with a psalm
That say come on

Bridge
             G
It says come on
             D
It says come on
               G
That says come on

Nah la la la

(G)
What am I?
What am I?
What am I?
        D
What am I?

(G)
What am I?
What am I?
What am I?
        D
What am I?

D
Your trailing colours through the air
You know you’ve come fine baby
Your trailing colours through the air
I know you’re some fine baby

Chorus
(Na Na Na part over chorus chords)

So this is nothing about soul fire
Or fields over down
There’s no frenzies out off
Off of Armagnac or brown
No razorblades reigning mainly
Up on the plain
Where things won’t change
Nah nah nah nah nah nah

Repeat and fade
