Song - Sister I'm A Poet
Artist - Colin Meloy
Album - Colin Meloy Sings Morrisey

Standard Tuning - EADGBE

This is a nice song to play, with not a lot of chords
but the chords do change fast. Large 
spaces between chords where there
are no lyrics indicate they go on
for longer! barre chords do
sound tighter, but open chords sound just fine
as well. Enjoy :)


E    G  A   E    G  A  G    A G 
E    G  A   E    G  A  G    E    

A                 C#m
And all over this town 
A slow wind may blow 
And I can see through everybody's clothes 
        A                    B             
With no reason to hide these words I feel 
       A                        B
And no reason to talk about the books I read 
But still I do 
G            A         E
That's cause I'm a...
G      A         G         
Sister I'm a...
    A    G         E
All over this town 

E     E   G  A    G    A  G   E

A           C#m               
Along the way outside the prison gates 
A                      B
I love the romance of crime 
And I wonder 
     A                         B
Does anybody feel the same way I do? 
       A                       B
And is evil just something you are 
Or something you do? 

G       A        E
But now I'm a... 

G      A           G 
Sister I'm a... 

    A    G      E     
All over this town 

E     E   G  A    G    A  G   E  G  A   E   G   A  G   A  G  E   

A                    C#m
   And all over this town 
They pull over in their Citroen vans 
Not to shake your hand 
With meths on their breaths 
And you with youth on your side 

A                             B
A plastic bag stranded at the light 

This once was me... 

G       A        E
But now I'm a... 

G      A         G  
Sister I'm a... 

    A    G        E
All over this town 

        G    A        E
Oh, all over this town 

    G    A         E
All over this town 

    G    A         G   A  
All over this town 

G    E


Here's a little variation you 
can add to the E major chord of the
main riff that's followed
by the quick G chord, then
A chord.


in short, quickly strum the first E
chord, lift off your pointer finger
that should have been on the 1st fret
of the G string so it is now open,
then pluck the D string, with
your middle finger still on the 2nd
fret from the chord, then hammer back 
onto the 1st fret of the G string
with your pointer finger, then 2
very quick strums of the E major
chord, it sounds great when
it's pulled off :)
