Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Take Your Carriage Clock And Shove It  Belle and Sebastian

[C#]In the boardroom the quiet man tak[G#]es a second to think what t[F#]o do;                                [C#]

He's out [F#]of his seat and he's starting to spe[C#]ak and he hears his own voice;        [G#]

[C#]For years and years he's don[G#]e nothing but bear down, and put up with all [F#]their demands;         [C#]
She sits[F#] like a viper and offers a cl[C#]ock without[G#] giving a damn...He takes it;
[C#]"Honour forbids me, but [G#]honour be damned, you have[F#] wined till you got wh[C#]at you want;
[F#]I did the work and when th[C#]ings were going badly [G#]you left us to rot";
Bridge: F# C# F# C# F# C# G#, etc.

[C#]He locked the door of t[G#]he boardroom and turned, like [F#]the scene from the [C#]old country song;

[F#]Towering over the tab[C#]le he is lost; [G#]he is drunk with it all:
"You onl[C#]y came back to us when we'd turned it aroun[G#]d, when we'd rescued yo[F#]ur arse from the fire;      [C#]
[F#]Your contributio[C#]n to all that we did is to say[G#] it was dire"
Bridge 2: F# C# F# C# F# C# G#, etc.

C# (one strum) G#(ibid.) F#(ibid.) C#(ibid).
"Night after day after night I've been working, despite of you fucking us all;

F#(ibid.) C#(ibid) G#(ibid.)
Now I'm going to die, I don't care if you cry, just please leave me alone;

And spare those tears for you[C#]rself, we've had th[G#]ose 'till we're sick, yo[F#]u should leave while you[C#] still
the chance";

The ot[F#]hers were shocked at this [C#]shameful display at the end of an [F#]hounoured care[C#]er;

He paus[F#]ed in the silence to pull d[C#]own his tie and observe[G#] the melee.
Given that these are all sharp chords, they can be played barre style, or open on capo one; whichever
better to your ear.
