Good Fortune   P J Harvey



I hope this helps, i've seen a few terrible tabs for this kicking around the place.

Main Verse:

e---------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------
G--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x-----x---x--x---x----
D--7--5--7--5--7--5--7--5-----10--3--10--3----
A--7--5--7--5--7--5--7--5-----10--3--10--3----
E--5--3--5--3--5--3--5--3-----8---1--8---1----

(For the mute's on the G during the verse, she mutes the minor note of the chord...
and yes i'm sure, i saw her do it)


Chorus:

e--0--0--0--2--0--2----------------
B--0--3--3--3--1--3----------------
G--2--0--0--2--0--2----------------
D--2--0--2--0--2--0----------------
A--0--2--3--x--3--x----------------
E--x--3--x--x--x--x----------------

After the chorus there's a keyboard line which goes something like this:

e---------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------------
E--5--5--5--5--3--3--3/8--8--8--8--1--1--1--1-

If you're playing it solo you could just use power chords (unless you have a second
guitar or a bass to play it though i'd suggest leaving it well alone)

Here's the lyrics as i know them... im 100% sure that they're right, but i'm only human.

Threw my bad fortune
Off the top of
A tall building
I'd rather have done it with you

Your boy's smile
Five in the morning
Looked into your eyes
And I was really in love

In chinatown
Hung over
You showed me
Just what I could do

Talkin' about
Time travel
And the meaning
And just what it was worth

And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune's
Slipping away

And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody has
Something good to say

Things I once thought
Unbelievable
In my life
Have all taken place

When we walked through
Little Italy
I saw my reflection
Come right off your face

I paint pictures
To remember
You're too beautiful
To put it into words

Like a gypsy
You dance in circles
All around me
And all over the world

And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune's
Slipping away

And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody has
Something good to say

And I feel like
Some bird of paradise
My bad fortune's
Slipping away

And I feel the
Innocence of a child
Everybody has
Something good to say

So I take my
Good fortune
And I fantasize
Of our leaving
Like some modern-day
Gypsy landslide
Like some modern-day
Bonnie and clyde

On the run again x4
