Autopsy  Fairport Convention

(transcribed by stevennorrie)
One of the nicest songs Sandy has written with Fairport, appearing on the album
It has a very complex rythm structure: The first part is set into a jazzy 5/4 time signature,
into 4/4 and then back again into a 5/4 timing. The beautiful Richard-Thompson-solo
is one of my favourites) is set into 4/4 time and then changes into a 6/4 timing, as soon
the dulcimer comes in.
Anyway here it is:
[(5/4)]Intro: Dm Gm
You m[Dm]ust philosophise,[Gm]
But wh[Bb]y must you bore my to[Am] tears?[Gm]
You´re red a[Dm]round the eyes,[Gm]
You tel[Bb]l me things no one e[Am]lse hears[Gm]
You spe[Dm]nd all your time crying,[Gm]
[Bb]Crying the hour[Am]s into tears,[Gm]
[Bb]Crying the hours[Am] into tears[Gm]
Bb Cm F (do some picking)
Come len[Gm]d your time to me,
And you will know th[Cm]at you are free[F]
And whe[Gm]n you look at me
Don´t think you´re owning what [Cm]you see,[F]
For rem[Gm]ember that you´re free,
Cm (I believe Richard plays something in
in harmony to Cm)
And that´s what you want to be,
So ju[Gm]st lend your time to me
Solo: Bb Dm Gm Dm Gm (play it somewhere around the fifth fret, going up to the
[(6/4)]accomp[Bb]anie[Am]d by[Gm] dulc[Bb]imer[Am])[Gm]
Then play the first part (without the Intro) again, until the first change of timing.
And that´s it then...
Have fun with it...
