Subject: TAB: "Underlying Depression" by Van Morrison
"Underlying Depression" by Van Morrison
Taken from the album "Days Like This"
Tabbed by Justin Kunz:
"I was flabbergasted by the headlines: 'People in Glass Houses Throwing
Stones.'"-- Van Morrison
Throw a capo on the first fret and play these chords, with respect to
the capo:
[G#m]A [466444]x02220
B x24442
E 022100
Or, since there isn't really a defined guitar sound on the album, play
bar chords to give it a light feel:
[Am]Bb [577555]x13331
C x35553
[F] [133211]  
On the A-E part below, it means make a quick change from the E to an A,
then back to E.
Here are the lyrics:
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion, have to cra[A]wl int[B]o my roo[E]m[A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion, don't want to [A]know about the [B]moon in June[E] [A-E]
Outside there's a[A] cavalcade of clowns[B], but they're just[A] bringing me down[E]
With underlying depressi[E]on[A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion and it's st[A]arting in my backya[B]rd[E] [A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion, and these [A]times ain't e[B]ven so har[E]d[A-E]
Lord I was b[A]orn with the[B] blues and my bl[A]ue suede shoes[E]
And underlying depressio[E]n[A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion and there's[A] just nowhere [B]to turn[E] [A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion and things just se[A]em to turn in on o[B]ne[E] [A-E]
Sometimes I'm st[A]uck here in the corner,[B] just like Little[A] Jack Horner[E]
With underlying depressi[E]on[A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion and I j[A]ust can't [B]get it righ[E]t[A-E]
Underlying depre[G#m]ssion I've got t[A]o fight it w[B]ith all of[E] my[A-E] might
Right now I do[A]n't want to be alone[B], get my[A] baby on the t[E]elephone
Underlying depression[E] [A-E]
Have to make some conces[G#m]sions when everything is [A]working righ[B]t[E] [A-E]
Have to count my blessin[G#m]gs, helps me mak[A]e it th[B]rough the night[E] [A-E]
I've got[A] love in my l[B]ife, as wel[A]l as trouble and[E] strife, yeah
And underlying depressio[E]n[A-E]
(E w/ A-E to end)
Underlying depression, underlying depression, underlying depression
Ain't nothing but the blues
Underlying depression ain't nothing but the blues
Underlying depression, ain't nothing but the blues
Underlying depression
