Alphabet Soup  Bell X1

Alphabet Soup - Bell X1.
Tab & Chords.
Tabbed By Paul Mackle.
This is a great song, by a great "new" band called Bell X1 (Damien Rice's mates).
Couldnt find any Bell X1 tabs, so i thought i'd have a crack myself.
So here goes....
Theres a few riffs, but theyre all based around the same idea:
Opening Riff:
 
 e-----------------------------------------e
 b-----------------------------------------b
 g--7-7-6-------5---7-7-6------------------g
 d--------5-7-7---5-------5-7-7-4-7--------d
 a-----------------------------------------a
 e-----------------------------------------e

when that dies down, theres a quieter riff
to go with the verse. (its also the same riff
at the end)
Quieter/Ending Riff:
(the very last time you play it, at the end
of the song add that wee note in brackets!)
 
 e-----------------------------------------e
 b-----------------------------------------b
 g--7-7-6-------5-------5-------------(7)--g
 d--------5-7-7---5-7-7---5-7-7-4-7--------d
 a-----------------------------------------d
 e-----------------------------------------e

There seems to be a small riff played over
and over again when
"youre not Maud Gonne" changes key:
 
 e----------------e
 b----------------b
 g-7-7-6----------g
 d-------5--------d
 a----------------a
 e----------------a

theres also another riff around
"i was somone elses children":
 
 e-------------------------------------------e
 b-------------------------------------------b
 g--7-p-6----------------7-p-6---------------g
 d--------4-h-5-h-7-p-4--------4-h-5-h-7-----d
 a-------------------------------------------a
 e-------------------------------------------e

Well thats about it for the riffs; chords are
easy enough too:
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bell_x1/alphabet_soup_tab.html )
Verse:
I Shoulda k[D]nown, by the a[A]rc of the empty wine glass
I shoulda k[D]nown, cos you s[A]tep on, dont walk over cracks
looking over my Sh[D]oulder, to see you lo[A]oking back over yours
but you were paying the fe[D]rryman, even a[A]fter Chris said dont..
Pre Chorus:
but youre no[F#m]t Maud Gonne, not Maud Gonne
no youre n[E]ot Maud Gonne, not Maud Gonne
and youre [F#m]not Maud Gonne, not Maud Gonne
no youre n[E]ot Maud Gonne, not Maud Gonne...
Chorus:
youre n[D]ot Maud Gonne...but then again neither was s[A]he
the only one tal[D]kin now, is my alphabet so[A]up
i say you like chi[F#m]ldren, but you couldnt eat a w[E]hole one
and the only one ta[D]lkin now, is my alphabet so[A]up...
and hes on a lo[A]op...
Verse: (chords as above)
I shoulda known, but i only caught a glimpse,
I shoulda known, a beautiful red wine stained glimpse,
i was other peoples children, i could always be sent home,
in front of some elses blue screen, for someone elses show,
Pre Chorus & Chorus: (as above)
Ending:
[D]...my alphabet so[A]up...yeah hes on a lo[D]op
...my alphabet So[A]up...yeah hes on a lo[D]op
...my alphabet so[A]up...(he says..oh wait..whats that, whats that he says)
[D5]Whats that youre sayin to me [C5] [A5]
[A5]tomato coated spaghetti? (play x4, distorted if ya like!)
(5th time round it goes:)
[D]whats that youre sayin to me
[E]tomato coated spaghetti?
[D]Its gonna be okay....(till fade)
And thats it!!! lovely wee song...
