Note: for Em7 Boo Hewerdine plays this chord with the D string open, but
I prefer the sound of the chord with the D string fretted.

16 Miles (Boo Hewerdine)
 ------------------------

This is on Boo Hewerdine's second album, Ignorance. It's in Ab (capo at
1) both live and on the album. Below is written as though played in G at
the nut.
(Intro & verse) :
  [G]          [C+2]        [C(b5)+2]     *   [Dsus4]            [D]*  [Em7]         [Em7(+2]    *[Em7]

Just keep that tab going throughout the song (except the bridge).
Cadd2 * Dsus4 * Em7 *
D'you ever see London at night and not want to go home ?
D'you ever take drugs stay up late just to see what you would
see
D'you ever have love and hate scratched across your hand ?
or did you
turn
round with 16 miles to go ?
Cadd2 * Dsus4 * Em7 *
D'you ever just walk away and disappear for days ?
D'ou ever have a girl----friend called Catherine Wheel?
D'you ever come home from work and say I'm never going back again?
or did you turn
round with 16 miles to go ?
       [G]han han ha laya
       [Dsus4]han han ha laya
       [Cadd2]han han ha laya
       [Dsus4]                                                                                 
       - - - - - - - -

Cadd2 * Dsus4 * Em7 *
D'you ever wanna kiss me so hard it bled ?
D'you ever find yourself laughing in the middle of the day
D'you ever think about the first time that I came in you?
or did you turn
round with 16 miles to go?
(Bridge):
  [E]Think about the [Esus4]world, and   [E]those who'd see us [Esus4]hang,
  [E]saying it's the only [Esus4]language we un[E]derstand, we u[Esus4]nderstand
Cadd2 * Dsus4 * Em7 *
And all those lives, we'll never know
If we turn round with 16 miles to go
And all those lives, we'll never know
If we turn round with 16 miles to go
(Outro):

X32032 - C(b5)add2 - 'flattened fifth'

The trick is to fret the B and e strings 'the wrong way round' (i.e.
pinky on B string, 3rd finger on e string) so you can slide down to the
second fret on the e string for the last beat in each bar (marked *
above).
e.g. for a Cadd2 going to C(b5)add2 (second bar)

I think that's about it, any comments (or better chord names!) welcome.
