Can't Carry On
(N. Finn)
NOTE:
-- Another of these songs where, although I've given chords, what Neil
Finn is playing guitar-wise is a chord with different, little fills in
between the lyric lines.
 Bm
 Why do I kid myself
Why do I scream for pleasure
 EmF#Bm
 It's four in the morning should know better
But she can weave a spell
Want it to last forever
 EmF#Bm
 Making me feel like somebody special
CHORUS
 AF#GA
 Can't carry on this way (just go to sleep)
 F#GA
Before it gets too late (just go to sleep)
 F#GA
Doing damage to my brain (just go to sleep)
 F
Well here we go again
Though I look everywhere
I never seem to find it
Always a shadow around a corner
Drown it in alcohol
Stuck in the elevator
Hard to remember in the morning
Chorus
Tell you about myself
If you're in the mood to listen
Baby you don't know who you're kissing
This is a lonely world
You are a strange companion
When you get what you wanted
You want to leave
 AF#GA
 Honestly I want to free myself 
 F#GA
From the burden of inaction  
 F#GA
Honestly I want to raise myself 
 F#GA
To any plane I can imagine  
Honestly I want to free myself
From the burden of inaction
Honestly I want to raise myself
To any plane I can imagine
 BEB
 Can't carry on this way (just go to sleep)
 EB
Before it gets too late  
 EB
Doing damage to my brain (just go to sleep)

Well here we go again

Don't Dream It's Over
(N. Finn)
NOTES:
-- Neil's guitar is tuned down one half-step for this song. If
you're going to try and play along, you'll have to do the same.
-- For all you bar chord haters, this is one song you won't like. Every
chord is a bar chord. of course, you don't -have- to play it that way.
the first chord is on the 7th fret, second is on the 4th, etc. if you
are having any difficulties with these chords, contact me (marck@nwu.edu).
INTRO: E(9)* E9* E7sus*
E(9) C#(9)*
There is freedom within, there is freedom without
 AG#
 Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
 E(9C#(9

 A

CHORUS
 AB
 Hey now, hey now
 E(9C#(9
 Don't dream it's over
 AB
 Hey now, hey now
 E(9C#(9
When the world comes in
 AB
 They come, they come
 E(9C#(9
 To build a wall between us
 AB
 We know they won't win 
Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief
Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win

Hole in the River
(N. Finn/ E. Rayner)
NOTES:
-- For the intro, if you sit on an Em chord on the 7th fret (X79987),
you can find your way around the main melody line of the keyboard that
Eddie Rayner is playing. (The guitar part at that point is just doing
that damped string/percussive thing, so when playing it alone on an
acoustic, it helps to play around on the Em.)
-- The psychedelic instrumental break is composed entirely on C#m (a
last-minute idea from Nick Seymour that saved this song from being
scrapped.) All the fun stuff is going on in the keyboards, while the
guitar just sits on that one chord. I would suggest creating a guitar
solo for this section (which is what Neil does when it's performed
live).
INTRO: Keyboard doodling around Em

try to avoid strumming it.

I Walk Away
(N. Finn)
NOTES:
-- the opening of this song and the verses use a lot of limited picking
of just a few strings. the best thing to do is check out the "unusual
chords" at the end of this file and, when playing, only pick the strings
that you're actually fingering.

Slipping off my tongue

It's hard to let go
Of all that we know

The sun always sets
With room for regrets
As I walk away from you

Into Temptation
(N. Finn)
-- the reason the acoustic guitar part on the verses in this song is so
wonderful is because Neil limits the number of strings he plays to only
a few. since this is so key, i've included *all* the chords for the
verses at the end. take special note to which strings should not be
played at all (X).

Love You 'Til the Day I Die
(N. Finn)
NOTES:
-- Listening to this song, the guitar work sounds very complex. I
was pleasantly surprised to find out that the verses are constructed
on two chords. However, Neil is adding a lot of other little licks
and "side chords" in between to make things interesting. (for exam-
 10
ple, one of his faves is an Em form like this:  X7978.)  I would
suggest you do your own goofing around and figure out what works.
-- The bridge ("Frost on the window pane...") is particularly tricky
in this song, but once you get the fingerings down, it flows beauti-
fully.
INTRO: B7* Em* B7 Em B7 Em
 B7
 There's closets in my head where dirty things are kept
 Em
That never see the light of day

Mansion in the Slums

NOTE:

on your guitar (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th). focus on just playing those strings
most of the way through, and minimize the use of the two highest strings.

She said don't walk away

I'm down on my knees
 DB
So please don't be mean to me 
So I talked to you for an hour
In the bar of a small town hotel
You asked me what I was thinking
I was thinking of a padded cell
With a black and white T.V.
To stop us from getting lonely
I could not escape
A plea from the heart
You know what it means to me
She said don't walk away
I'm down on my knees
So please don't be mean to me
No, I could not escape
A plea from the heart
Mysterious sympathy
I couldn't wait for a chance
To walk out the door
 DBC#m
You know what it means to me  
 AC#m
 I saw you lying in the arms of a poet 
 AC#m
 I heard him tell you t...tantalizing lies  (about me)

 Well whad'd'ya know, whad'd'ya know
I could not escape
You're down on the floor
You know what it means to me

To walk out the door

In the arms of a poet
You know what it means

(N. Finn)
NOTES:
-- to play this the way it was originally played, all chords on the
verses are bar chords: Em on the 7th fret, A on the 5th fret, and
C on the 8th fret.
-- in the tab of the Richard Thompson solo, the notation "11^" means to
play the 11th fret but bend the note up (not necessarily all the way up
to the tone of the 12th fret--just a quick, ornamental bend. you know,
Thompson is famous for this kind of thing.)

NOTE:
-- The opening is, obviously, a keyboard part, which is easily
reproduced on guitar using both the Em9, Em, and A(9) chords. with
a little bit of work you should be able to find it, but if you
have problems, don't hesitate to ask (marck@nwu.edu).

The world where you live     
So here we lie against each other
These four walls can never hold us

High above the kitchen
And we're strangers here
On our way to some other place

Do you climb into space
To the world where you live
