Haunting  The Pogues

***HAUNTING - Terry Woods
from the album "Waiting For Herb"
Haunting - as perfomed by The Pogues
[Bb] [A] [C] [F] [G]  
[Gm]Sit down on that stool hear the c[Dm]ant of a fool
And a [Gm]strange tale I'll tell unto to [Dm]ye
Of a [F]time that I lived at the [D#]buff of a hill
'Neath the [D]burial chambers y[Gm]ou see
(all verses use this pattern)
One Saturday night I got up on my bike
To go to a dance in the town
I set off at seven to be there at eleven
No thought of the rain coming down
As I pushed up the hill the rain started to spill
So for shelter I had to resort
Helter skelter I went as downhill I sped
To the trees at the old fairy fort
I pulled up my bike be a tree in the gripe
To find shelter out of the storm
The rain it came down and like stones beat the ground
But it was grand to be dry in that storm
Intro progression 2x
( Tab from: )
I was dreaming away about better days
When a voice it says dirty ould night
I fell over me bike I got such a fright
When the ghostly voice bid me the night
I jumped up with a start gave the storm not a thought
As the hail beat a rhythm on me
And I stared at the tree that had spoken to me
Not a body was there I could see
Instramental progression:
[G] [D] [G] [F] [C]  
[G]2x[D] [G] [D] [G]
Intro riff 2x
The voice I had heard not another word said
As the hair on the head stood on me
And I said an "Our Father" as I peddled much faster
Away from that ghost haunted tree
(missing verse... anyone know it?)
intro riff 2x
Instramental riff 2x
For weeks and weeks after with nerves a disaster
Nowhere near that road would I go
And from dusk through the night I would shake with the fright
Of the tree that had haunted me so
Now whenever I go to a dance in the town
I make sure not to stop on the way
To be there for eleven I still leave at seven
But I go by a different way
Instramental riff 2x
