I'm A Cuckoo
Belle & Sebastian
Tabbed by Petey Sykes

This is an alteration of the previous version on here, which was great but a few chords 
wrong. This should work better. It's easier to play if you tune down a semitone (see 
at the bottom). Hope you enjoy :-)


Intro: F# B F# B F# C# B F#

F#
I'm glad to see you
B
I had a funny dream
	A#m	   G#m
You were wearing funny shoes
	A#m	   G#m
You were going to a dance
	A#m				B	A#m 	C#   C#sus4  C#
You were dressed like a punk but you were too young to remember


F#
Glad to see you
B
I'm outside the house
	A#m	      G#m
I'm not thinking right today
     A#m	      G#m
I've got no energy
	A#m	   B          A#m
I'm glad that you were waiting with me
C#
Tell me all about your day


D#m		C#
Breaking off is misery
	B	     F#
I see a wilderness for you and me
     B		A#m
Punctuated by philosophy
       C#	                          B
I’m wondering how things could've been


F#
I'm happy for you
B
You've made it hard for me
	A#m	     G#m
I counted on your company
	A#m		G#m
You were staying with your friends tonight
	A#m	   B
I'm feeling sorry for myself
          A#m	C#
I keep taking everything to be to be a sign


F#
I'm happy for you
B
Now I know this hurt is poison
A#m	      G#m
Too sharp to be bled
A#m		G#m
I'm sitting on my empty bed
	A#m
On my empty bed
   B	   A#m	C#
At night the fever grows it's pounding pounding


D#m	       C#
I'd rather be in Tokyo
	B	   F#
Id rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
	B		A#m
Watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
	C#		B		F#
There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo


F# B F# B F# C# B 
x 2


F#	     B
Scary moment, lovin' every moment
     A#m			G#m
I was high from playing shows
	A#m		G#m
We lost a singer to her clothes
    A#m			G#m
My trouble raised its ugly head
	A#m
I was revealed
	B
And I was home in bed
A#m	C#
I was a kid again


F#		B
Jesus told me, go after every coin
	A#m		 G#m
Like it was the last in the world
	A#m		G#m
And protect the wayward child
	A#m
But I'm a little lost sheep
	B
I need my Bo peep
  		A#m		C#
I know I need my Shepherd here tonight


D#m		C#
Breaking off is misery
	B	     F#
I see a wilderness for you and me
     B		A#m
Punctuated by philosophy
	C#		B	   F#
And a wondering how things could've been


Middle 8:  B  G#  C#  A#  D#m__ G# 
C#


F#
I’d like to see you
B
But really I should stay away
   A#m		G#m
And let you settle down
	A#m		G#m
I've got no claims to your crown
	A#m
I was the boss of you
	B
And I loved you
        A#m
You know I loved you
C#
It's all over now


F#		B
I was there for you
When you were lonely
	A#m		G#m
I was there when you were sad
	A#m		G#m
I was there when you were bad
	A#m
Now it's my time of need
	   B		A#m	C#
I’m thinking, do I have to plead to get you by my side?


D#m	        C#
I'd rather be in Tokyo
	B	   F#
Id rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
	B		A#m
Watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
	C#		B
There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo


F# B F# B F# C# B 
x 2

End on F#

Thanks to whoever posted this. Also wanted to say how great the 'Transpose song' function is. bit easier to play this song in G major - thanks UG!

Ha. I just noticed that the chord progression for "Breaking off is misery, I see a wilderness for you and me" is the same chord progression throughout Thin Lizzy's "Dancin' in the Moonlight", just a half-step lower.
