If You're Feeling Sinister  Belle and Sebastian

Make a new cult [B]every day to sui[F#]t your affair[A]s
[B]Kissing girls in [F#]english at the [E]back of the stairs
[G]you're a honey with a following of [B]innocent boys
they never [E]know it
because you never [B]show it
you always get your[F#] way
[B]you never [E]know it
Because you never s[B]how it
you always get your [F#]way
[B]Have you and her be[F#]en taking pictures o[A]f your obsessions?
[B]Because I m[F#]et a kid who went through o[E]ne of your sessions
[G]In his blue velour and silk
[B]You liberated
A boy I never r[E]ated
And now he's throwing [B]discuss
For Liverpool and W[F#]idnes
[B]You liberated
A boy I never r[E]ated
And now he's doing b[F#]usiness
[F#]The stars of track and field you are
The stars of track and field you [F#m]are
The stars of track and field are [E]beautiful people
[B]Could I write a [F#]piece about you now[A] that you've made it?
[B]About the hours s[F#]pent, the emptine[E]ss in your training
[G]You only did it so that [B]you could wear
Your terry[E] underwear
And feel the c[B]ity air
Run past your [F#]body
[B]Could I write a r[F#]equiem for yo[A]u when you're dead?
[B]"She had the moves, she[F#] had the speed, it[E] went to her head"
[G]She never needed a[B]nything to get her ro[E]und the track
But when she[B]'s on her back
She had the k[F#]nowledge
To get her into college
[E]But when she's on [B]her back
[F#]She had the knowledge
To get her into college
CHORUS X 4

[C#] [B] [E] [C#]  
[B] [E] [G#]  
[F#] [E]  
[C#] [B] [C#]  
[C#]We lay on the [B]bed there
[C#]Kissing just for [Bbm]practice
Could we [B]please be objective?
Cause the [F#]other boys are queuing up [C#]behind us
A hand over [B]my mouth
A [Bbm]hand over the window
Well, if [B]I remain passive and [F#]you just want a cuddle
Then we [C#]should be ok, and we [G#]won't get in a muddle
[B]Seeing other people
At [F#]least that's what we say we are [G#]doing
[C#]How are you [B]feeling?
[C#]I don't think you can be [Bbm]dealing
With the [B]situation very [F#]well
You take a lover for a [C#]dirty weekend, that's [G#]ok
But when it's over
You are [B]looking at the working [F#]week through the eyes of a [G#]gigolo
[C#] [B] [E] [C#]  
[B] [E] [G#]  
[F#] [E]  
[C#] [B] [C#]  
[C#]You're kissing your [B]elbow
[C#]You're kissing your [Bbm]reflection
And you [B]can't understand why all the [F#]other boys are going for the
[C#]New, tall, elegant, [B]rich kids
[Bbm]You can bet it is a b**ch, kid
But if [B]they don't see the quality [F#]then it is apparent that
You're [C#]going to have to change
Or you're [G#]going to have to go with [B]girls
You might be better [F#]off
At least they know what they're [G#]doing
[C#]We lay on the [B]bed there
[C#]Kissing just for [Bbm]practice
Could we [B]please be objective?
Cause the [F#]other boys are queuing up[C#] behind us
A hand over [B]my mouth
A [Bbm]hand over the window
Well, if [B]I remain passive and [F#]you just want a cuddle
Then we [C#]should be ok, and we [G#]won't get in a muddle
[B]Seeing other people
At [F#]least that's what we say we are [G#]doing
[B]Seeing other people
At [F#]least that's what we say we are [G#]doing
[B]Seeing other people
At [F#]least that's what we say we are [G#]doing

 duh D-D-duh D-D-duh D-D-duh on F#

[F#] [-] [B]  
Verse 1:
[F#]Me and the [B]Major could be[F#]come close f[B]riends cause we
[F#]Get on the s[B]ame train and he [F#]wants to t[B]alk to me
[F#]Me and the [B]Major could be[F#]come close fr[B]iends cause we
[F#]Get on the [B]same train and he [F#]wants to [B]talk
But there is [G#m]too much history and too [B]much biography between [F#]us
Verse 2:
[F#]Me and the Ma[B]jor don't see [F#]eye to [B]eye on a
[F#]Number of thi[B]ngs, he'll take a g[F#]uy like [B]me, and then
[F#]Me and the M[B]ajor don't see [F#]eye to ey[B]e on a
[F#]Number of t[B]hings, he[F#]'ll take a[B] guy like me
[G#m]And put in the army
Cause the[B] Queen's own army makes a ma[F#]n of you
Chorus:
But he [G#m]doesn't understand and he doesn't try
He [B]knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
We're the [Ebm]younger generation, we grew up fast
All the [C#]others did drugs
They're taking it out on [G#m]us
They're taking it out on [B]us
They're taking it out on [F#]us
Verse 3:
[F#]Me and the [B]Major are fr[F#]om different w[B]orlds but if
[F#]I get stuc[B]k in a l[F#]ift it's always wi[B]th a toff
[F#]Me and the Ma[B]jor are fr[F#]om different w[B]orlds but if
[F#]I get stu[B]ck in a li[F#]ft it's always w[B]ith a man
[G#m]Of noble standing who loo[B]ks down on me like I [F#]was never born
[F#]I think the[B] Major's going q[F#]uite ins[B]ane he goes
[F#]Along the pa[B]vement and come[F#]s back aga[B]in, oh yeah
[F#]I think the[B] Major's going q[F#]uite insa[B]ne he goes
[F#]Along the pa[B]vement and come[F#]s back agai[B]n
[G#m]Like he is on parade, and he is [B]on parade
At least he [F#]thinks so
Chorus:
[F#]Now he is sw[G#m]apping his tent for a sh[B]eltered home
He doesn't have a family and he is living alone
[Ebm]He remembers all the punks and the hippies too
[C#]And he remembers Roxy Music in '72
But he doesn't[G#m] understand and he do[B]esn't try
He knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
[Ebm]We're the younger generation, we grew up fast
[C#]All the others did drugs
They're taking it out on[G#m] us
They're taking it out on [B]us
They're taking it out on [F#]us
[F#]I want a dan[B]ce, I want a d[F#]rink of wh[B]isky so I
[F#]Forget the M[B]ajor and g[F#]o off to t[B]own
Because the snow is falling
[F#]I want a dan[B]ce, I want a [F#]drink of wh[B]isky so I
[F#]Forget the M[B]ajor and go[F#] off to to[B]wn
Because the [G#m]snow is falling
The [B]snow is falling
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling.

Get Me Away From Here I am Dying

tabbed by samdel13
Capo on 1
Intro: F
[F]Oh! Get me a[C]way from here I'm [Dm]dying
Play me a [Am]song to set me [Bb]free
Nobody [F]writes them like they [Bb]used to
So it [C]may as well be [F]me
Here on my [C]own now after [Dm]hours
Here on my [Am]own now on a [Bb]bus
Think of it [F]this way
You could [G]either be suc[Bb]cessful or be [C]us
With our [Bb]winning smiles, and [C]us
With our [Bb]catchy tunes, oh [C]us
Now we're [Bb]photogenic
[Dm]You know, [Am]we don't stand a [Bb]chance ([F]we don't stand a [Bb]chance)
[F]Oh I'll settle [C]down with some old [Dm]story
About a [Am]boy who's just like [Bb]me
Thought there was [F]love in every[Bb]thing and every[C]one
You're so na[F]ive!
They always [C]tell a sorry s[Dm]tory
They always [Am]get it in the [Bb]end
Still it was [F]worth it as I [G]turned the pages s[Bb]olemnly, and [C]then
With a [Bb]winning smile the [C]boy
With na[Bb]ivety suc[C]ceeds
At the [Bb]final moment, I[Dm] cried
I [Am]always cry at [Bb]endings
[F]Oh, that wasn't [C]what I meant to [Dm]say at all
From [Am]where I'm sitting, [Bb]rain
Falling [F]against the lonely [Bb]tenement
Has [C]set my mind to [F]wander
Into the [C]windows of my [Dm]lovers
They never [Am]know unless I [Bb]write
"This is no [F]declaration, [G]I just thought I'd [Bb]let you know good[C]bye"
Said the [Bb]hero in the s[C]tory,
"It is m[Bb]ightier than [C]swords
I could [Bb]kill you sure
But [Dm]I could only [Am]make you cry with [Bb]these words"
[F]Cry with [Bb]these words
[F]Cry with [Bb]these words
[F]Ooh! [Bb]Get me away I'm [F]dying
[Bb]Get me away I'm [F]dying

[Amaj7]Anthony walked to his death because he thought he'd never feel this [Emaj7]way again
[Amaj7]If he goes back to the house then things would go from bad to worse what [Emaj7]could he do?
[Amaj7]He wants to remember things exactly as he left them on that [Emaj7]funny day
[Amaj7]And if there is something else beyond, he isn't scared because
It's [F#m]bound to be less boring than today[(G#m)]
[A]Bound to be less boring than to[Amaj7]morrow
[Amaj7]Hilary went to her death because she couldn't think of anyt[Emaj7]hing to say
[Amaj7]Everybody thought that she was boring so they never listened [Emaj7]anyway

[A]A cup of tea she would admit to no one[Amaj7]
[Amaj7]Hilary went to the Catholic Church because she wanted inf[Emaj7]ormation
[Amaj7]The vicar or whatever took her to one side and gave her con[Emaj7]firmation
[Amaj7]Saint Theresa's calling her the church up on the hill is looking [Emaj7]lovely
[Amaj7]But it didn't interest the only things she wants to know is

[Amaj7]How and why and when and where to follow
[F#m]How and why and when and where to go

He'll try in vain to take away the pain of being a hopeless unbeliever
[E]When she got back her spirituality was thrown into con[A]fusion
[E]So she got a special deal on renting from the man at Redif[A]fusion
[E]Look at me I'm on TV It makes up for the shortcomings of being [A]poor
[E]Now I'm in a million pieces picked up for deliberation
[F#m]By the people listening at home[(G#m)]
[A]By the people watching on the telly
[F#m]By the people listening at home
[A]By the people watching on the telly
But if y[C#m]ou are feeling sinister
Go o[B]ff and see a minister
