April Skies
by the Jesus and Mary Chain, from the album Darklands
tuning: all strings 1/2 step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
chords and lyrics transcribed by John Spencer
(This is an old favourite -- always amazes me what
they do with just three chords. I find they mostly
strum the bass portions of chords, then sometimes
play the entire chord -- see what works for you.)
[E]Hey honey whatcha trying to say[EEE] [A]
As I stand here don't you walk away[AAA] [B]
And the [A]world comes tumbling [E]down
Hand in hand in a violent life[EEE] [A]
Making love on the edge of a knife[AAA] [B]
And the [A]world comes tumbling [E]down
And it's [A]hard for me to say
And it's [E]hard for me to stay
I'm going [A]down to be by myself
I'm going [E]back for the good of my health
And there's [B]one thing I couldn't do
Sacri[A]fice myself to you
[E] [A] [E] [A] [B] [A] [E]  
[E] Hey baby I just can't see
[A] Just what you mean to me
[E] I take my hand and I fake my words
[A] I'm just your long-time curse
[B] And if you walk away I can't [A]take it
But that's the way that you [E]are
And that's the things that you [A]say
And now you've gone too [E]far
With all things you [A]say
[B] Get back to where you come from
I can't [A]help it
Under the April [E]skies
Under the April [A]sky
Under the April [E]sun
Under the April [A]sky
Under the April [E]sun
Under the April [A]sun
Under the April [E]sky
Under the April [A]sun
Under the April [E]sky[A]
[E] Sun grows cold, sky gets black
And you [A]broke me up and now you won't come back
[E]Shaking hand, life is dead
And a [A]broken heart and a screaming head
Hey [E]hey
Under the April [A]skies
Under the April [E]sun
Under the April [A]sky[B] [A]
Under the April [E]sky
most of the time sometimes
