Cornerstone  Arctic Monkeys

Tuning: Standard
This is the capo version of Cornerstone chords by Robert Farell that was submitted
by MyNameIsRamone.
Thanks a lot you two for making and submitting this tab here.
I think it would be a lot easier for some novice player to play this song without
the bar chords :) so i made the capo version of it.
But i?m still can?t figure how to play Dm while placing your capo on 2nd fret so i
guess you still have to play the chord like this:
Dm: 556645
here we go.....
Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)
Verse 1
[G]I thought I saw you in the battleship
[C]but it was only a loo[Am]k-a-like
[G]She was nothing but a vision trick
[C]Under the warni[Am]ng light
[Em]She was close, clos[G]e enough to be your ghost[Em]
[G]But my chances turned to toast
[C]When i asked her if i could cal[Am]l her your name[G] [(Em] [G] [Em)]
[G]I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
[C]Huddled up in a wicker[Am] chair
[G]I wandered over for a closer look
[C]And kissed who ever was sitting t[Am]here
[Em]She was close, and[G] she held me very tightly[E]
[G]'Til I asked awfully politely, please
[C]Can I call yo[Am]u her name.[G]
(To transition into the chorus play this; G Em G Em Em, listen out for the strumming)
[C]And I elongated my lift home,[Am]
[Em]Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round[C]
[Am]I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
[Em]And kept my shortcuts to myself
G C Em (Come in with G at the end of the chorus and play these chords like in the verse)
Verse 2 (Same Pattern)
[G]I thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
[C]Messing with the smoke al[Am]arm,
[G]It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
[C]And she had a broken a[Am]rm,
[Em]It was close, so cl[G]ose that the walls were wet[Em]
[G]And she wrote it out in letra-set
[C]No, you can'[Am]t call me her name[Bm]
[G]Tell me where's your hiding plac[Bm]e
[G]I'm worried I'll forge[Bm]t your face
[Em]And I've asked everyone
[Am]I'm beginning to think I imagined y[Em]ou all along
[C]And I elongated my lift home,[Am]
[Em]Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round[C]
[Am]I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
[Dm]And kept my shortcuts to myself
G C Am x2 (Play this like you would in the verse)
[Em] [Am]  
[C] [Em]  
Verse 3
[G]I saw your sister in the cornerstone
[C]On the phone to the middle man[Am]
[G]When I saw that she was on her own
[C]I thought she might understand[Am]
[Em]She was close, well you couldn't[G] get much closer
[Em]She said i'm re[G]ally not supposed to but yes,[C]
You can call me anything you w[Am]ant.[G]
