Letter to Memphis  Pixies

>From 'Trompe Le Monde'
Transcribed by Mark Schnitzius (
Tune your guitar down a half step to play this one. You'll
need to hit the low E chord.
[E] [C#m] [A] [E] [C#m] [A] [E] [C#m] [A]  
[Call tbis Rbytbm Figure 1] 
[C#m] [A] [A] [E] [Abm] [E]  

[C#m] [A] [A] [E] [Abm] [A] [B]  

[End Rbytbm Figure 1] 
E? E C#m /B C#m A? A A? A

E? E C#m /B C#m A? A F#m

the day since I met her
i can't believe it's true
she came here from memphis
across the ocean
sailing and i saw her and i pleaded
why do you come so far and she said
[C#m]trying to get to [E]you
[C#m]how i tried to get to [E]you
[C#m]trying to get to [E]you
[Rbytbm Figure 2] 

i'm sending a letter
i'll send it right to you
i'll send it to memphis
i know that someday
everything i needed and i wanted
used to be that in my head was haunted
[witb Rbytbm Figure 1] 
and all these sirens they make me mad
and all this violence it brings me down
i feel strong
i feel lucky
trying to get to you
said i'm going to get to you
trying to get to you
[Rbytbm Figure 2] E
