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
