Better Be Home Soon
(N. Finn)

INTRO:  C   G

C                Am
somewhere deep inside
                  Em          G
something's got a hold on you
C                    Am
and it's pushing me aside
                     Em      G
see it stretch on forever

           C      C7
I know I'm right
                      F
for the first time in my life
             G
that's why I tell you
                C
you'd better be home soon

stripping back the coats
of lies and deceiption
back to nothingness
like a week in the desert

I know I'm right
for the first time in my life
that's why I tell you
                C         Em7/B*
you'd better be home soon

Bb           D                       G
so don't say no, don't say nothing's wrong
Bb                    A7                 D
cos when you get back home maybe I'll be gone

INSTR. BREAK:
C  Am  Em  G
C  Am  Em  F  Bb7*

it would cause me pain
if we were to end it
but I could start again
you can depend on it

           C     C7
I know I'm right
                      F
for the first time in my life
             G
that's why I tell you
                Am7         D
you'd better be home soon
             F         G
that's why I tell you

you'd better be home soon

Can't Carry On
(N. Finn)


NOTE:

-- Another of these songs where, although I've given chords, what Neil
Finn is playing guitar-wise is a chord with different, little fills in
between the lyric lines.

Bm
Why do I kid myself

Why do I scream for pleasure
Em                 F#                Bm
It's four in the morning should know better

But she can weave a spell

Want it to last forever
Em        F#                 Bm
Making me feel like somebody special


CHORUS
A                   F#        G     A
Can't carry on this way (just go to sleep)
                   F#         G     A
Before it gets too late (just go to sleep)
                   F#          G     A
Doing damage to my brain (just go to sleep)
                F
Well here we go again

Though I look everywhere
I never seem to find it
Always a shadow around a corner
Drown it in alcohol
Stuck in the elevator
Hard to remember in the morning

Chorus

Tell you about myself
If you're in the mood to listen
Baby you don't know who you're kissing
This is a lonely world
You are a strange companion
When you get what you wanted
You want to leave

A                  F#     G      A
Honestly I want to free myself
                     F#     G    A
From the burden of inaction
                     F#  G       A
Honestly I want to raise myself
                    F#     G     A
To any plane I can imagine

Honestly I want to free myself
From the burden of inaction
Honestly I want to raise myself
To any plane I can imagine


B                   E               B
Can't carry on this way (just go to sleep)
                   E       B
Before it gets too late
                   E                 B
Doing damage to my brain (just go to sleep)
                E           B
Well here we go again
E           B                E            B
(just go to sleep) I want to free myself
E           B                E            B
(just go to sleep) I want to raise myself


Closing:

B   A   G   F#  G   A

B    A    G    F#   G   B

Don't Dream It's Over
(N. Finn)

NOTES:

-- Neil's guitar is tuned down one half-step for this song.  If
you're going to try and play along, you'll have to do the same.

-- For all you bar chord haters, this is one song you won't like.  Every
chord is a bar chord.  of course, you don't -have- to play it that way.
the first chord is on the 7th fret, second is on the 4th, etc.  if you
are having any difficulties with these chords, contact me (marck@nwu.edu).


INTRO:  E(9)* E9*  E7sus*

E(9)                    C#(9)*
There is freedom within, there is freedom without
A                                  G#
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
E(9)                   C#(9)
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
A
But you'll never see the end of the road
             G#
While you're traveling with me


CHORUS
A        B
Hey now, hey now
E(9)             C#(9)
Don't dream it's over
A        B
Hey now, hey now
         E(9)        C#(9)
When the world comes in
A          B
They come, they come
E(9)              C#(9)
To build a wall between us
A                         B
We know they won't win


Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

CHORUS

(Chords under Hammond organ solo:  E(9)  C#(9)   A   G#)

GUITAR SOLO:


----5-7-5--------4----|----5-7-5----------------|----5-7-5--------4-|
--5--------5-----5----|--5--------5---7>9-7-----|--5--------5-----5-|
6------------4-4----4-|6------------4-------9---|6------------4-4---|

--------------------------------------------------|

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win

Hole in the River
(N. Finn/ E. Rayner)

NOTES:

-- For the intro, if you sit on an Em chord on the 7th fret (X79987),
you can find your way around the main melody line of the keyboard that
Eddie Rayner is playing.  (The guitar part at that point is just doing
that damped string/percussive thing, so when playing it alone on an
acoustic, it helps to play around on the Em.)

-- The psychedelic instrumental break is composed entirely on C#m (a
last-minute idea from Nick Seymour that saved this song from being
scrapped.)  All the fun stuff is going on in the keyboards, while the
guitar just sits on that one chord.  I would suggest creating a guitar
solo for this section (which is what Neil does when it's performed
live).


INTRO:  Keyboard doodling around Em

                      C    D                A     Em
There's a hole in the river where my auntie lies
                     C     D               A      Em
From the land of the living to the air and sky
                    C    D                 A      Em
Left her car by the river left her shoes beside
                           C     D           Am
Through the thorns and the bushes I hope she was ...

Am/G*         Am/F#*
Dreaming of glory
B      Am       Am/G          Am/F#
Miles above the mountains and plains
B       Am   Am/G   Am/F#
Free at last

We were touched by a cold wind, my father and I
The sound of desperate breathing her fear inside us all
She was coming to see him but something changed her mind
Drove her down to the river
There is no return

[INSTR. BREAK:  Keyboards based around C#m chord]

There's a hole in the river where a memory lies

There is no return

I Feel Possessed
(N. Finn)

NOTE:

-- on the verses, Neil's guitar is doing more picking than strumming, so
try to avoid strumming it.


INTRO:   Am   Am7   Am   Am7

Am
She said I could never do that
    Fsus*                         Fmaj7
but I know you can, you are in my dream
       Am
we are one person not two of a kind
    Fsus                    Fmaj7
and what was mine is now in your possession
        Am
I could feel you underneath my skin
       Fsus
as the wind rushed in,
         Fmaj7
sent the kitchen table crashing
Am              A11/E*    A11/G*
she said nobody move
                           C
or I'll bring the house down

I hardly know which way is up

people are strange God only knows
           Em         D/F#     Am
I feel possessed when you come round

       Fsus
it was one of those times
         Fmaj7
wished I had a camera on me
Am
six foot off the ground
       Fsus                    Fmaj7
well I know how that sounds...
Am
look above you and beyond me too
Fsus                            Fmaj7
that kind of view don't need an explanation
        F                     D         F
I'm not lying, not asking for anything
               G                         Am
I just want to be there when it happens again

I hardly know which way is up
or which way down
people are strange God only knows
          Em          D/F#     G       G7     E7   E7*
I feel possessed when you come round

Instrumental break on chords:  Am   Fsus   Fmaj7

Am
whenever you invade my home

everything I know flies out the window

it's above you and beyond me too
Fsus            Fmaj7
I don't want an explanation
         D7      G
but I'll be there when you bring the house down

I hardly know which way is up
or which way down
people are strange God only knows

people are strange

I feel possessed when you come round

I Walk Away
(N. Finn)


NOTES:

-- the opening of this song and the verses use a lot of limited picking
of just a few strings.  the best thing to do is check out the "unusual
chords" at the end of this file and, when playing, only pick the strings
that you're actually fingering.


INTRO:  D*   D4*  (Bm)*  A*

D
You came
D4
Out of this world to me
Bm
My life
A
Parted like the Red Sea
D
We flowed
D4               Bm
Easy between the rocks and stones
A
Never seemed to stop us
D
The years
D4
Ended in confusion
Bm           A
Don't ask me I don't know what happened
D
But I am
D4
A man with a mission
Bm          A
Must be the devil I don't know

G       A
Find me marching to a different tune

G                A
It's hard to let go
               G
Of all that we know
          Bm        A
As I walk away from you
G              A
Hurled from my home
           G
Into the unknown
          Bm        A      D   Bm   A
As I walk away from you


Reveal whatever you desire
To you it may be death defying
Black day
In the coldness of winter
Black words
Slipping off my tongue
I say forget it--it's over
As a dark cloud covered up the sun

It's hard to let go
Of all that we know
As I walk away from you
The sun always sets
With room for regrets
As I walk away from you

G            A
Give it to me
             G
Give it to me
          Bm  A
Your inspiration
G               A
Give to receive
            G
Find all we need
           Bm     Em    Bm    Em    Bm    Em
As I walk away


D          G
I'm just a slave to ambition
Bm           A
Tension your permanent condition
D       G
So much you've always wanted
Bm       A                 G      A
Too much given' you a sore head
        D      G      Bm
I walk away
           G        A       D    G    Bm
As I walk away from you
           G        A       D    G    Bm
As I walk away from you

try for heavens sake

the sky fell underneath a blanket
the sun sank as the miles went by
sit back with your head on the pillow
when you remember it makes you cry
ghost cars on the freeway
like friends that you thought you had
one by one they are disappearing

time will keep me warm
feel my face
now the insects swarm
in the lowlands
fear will take the place of desire

Into Temptation
(N. Finn)

-- the reason the acoustic guitar part on the verses in this song is so
wonderful is because Neil limits the number of strings he plays to only
a few.  since this is so key, i've included *all* the chords for the
verses at the end.  take special note to which strings should not be
played at all (X).

INTRO:  Em  Em7/F#  Em/G  B6

Love You 'Til the Day I Die
(N. Finn)

NOTES:

-- Listening to this song, the guitar work sounds very complex.  I
was pleasantly surprised to find out that the verses are constructed
on two chords.  However, Neil is adding a lot of other little licks
and "side chords" in between to make things interesting.  (for exam-
ple, one of his faves is an Em form like this:  X7978[10].)  I would
suggest you do your own goofing around and figure out what works.

-- The bridge ("Frost on the window pane...") is particularly tricky
in this song, but once you get the fingerings down, it flows beauti-
fully.


INTRO:   B7*  Em*  B7  Em  B7  Em

B7
There's closets in my head where dirty things are kept
     Em
That never see the light of day
B7
I want to drag them out, go for a walk
        Em
Just to see the look that's on your face
B7
Sometimes I can't be straight I don't want to hurt you
      Em
So forgive me if I tell a lie
B7
Sometimes I come on cold but don't believe it
       Em
I will love you till the day I die

[*** NOTE:  See below for guitar tab for this chorus]

Em   G           F#m               A      Em  G  F#m  A
Take heed, start doing things in reverse


Here comes trouble, there's nothing wrong when I relax
I'm talking to myself you're coming with me
Teaching you how to distort the facts
Sometimes I can't be straight I don't want to hurt you
So forgive me if I tell a lie
Sometimes I come on cold but don't believe it
I will love you till the day I die

I believe in doing things backwards
Take heed, start doing things in reverse

Em                       B*
Frost on the window pane, the sound of pouring rain
G/B*                 G(11)/B*
All makes me glad of you
C                B          C              Em  G  F#m  A
Though I am far away I am always with you

Em       G        F#m               A
Know the answer before you know the question
Em
Pull yourself together, baby, push with all your might
Em      B     G/B      G(11)/B
I'm all alone, always alone
C                B
Though I am far away
       C         B(VII)
I am always with you

Mansion in the Slums
(N. Finn)

NOTE:

-- The main guitar riff in this song focuses mainly on the top four strings
on your guitar (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th).  focus on just playing those strings
most of the way through, and minimize the use of the two highest strings.

I'll take it when it comes

Mean To Me
(N. Finn)

         E       A         C#m
She came all the way from America
      A               Bsus    B
Had a blind date with destiny
        E        A       C#m
And the sound of Te Awamutu
      Bsus             B
Had a truly sacred ring
        A             E
Now her parents are divorced
        G#                  A
And her friend's committing suicide

  B           E
I could not escape
                A
A plea from the heart
                 D           B
You know what it means to me
                     E
She said don't walk away
               A
I'm down on my knees
                   D         B
So please don't be mean to me

So I talked to you for an hour
In the bar of a small town hotel
You asked me what I was thinking
I was thinking of a padded cell
With a black and white T.V.
To stop us from getting lonely

I could not escape
A plea from the heart
You know what it means to me
She said don't walk away
I'm down on my knees
So please don't be mean to me
No, I could not escape
A plea from the heart
Mysterious sympathy
I couldn't wait for a chance
To walk out the door
                 D           B     C#m
You know what it means to me

A                                      C#m
I saw you lying in the arms of a poet
A                                    C#m
I heard him tell you t...tantalizing lies  (about me)
A                    B
Well whad'd'ya know, whad'd'ya know

I could not escape
You're down on the floor
You know what it means to me
I couldn't wait for a chance
To walk out the door
Mean ...
You know what it means
In the arms of a poet
You know what it means

Now We're Getting Somewhere
(N. Finn)

NOTES:

-- Chords in Intro should be damped with heel of hand.  when verse starts,
go ahead and let them sustain.

-- The lead-in to the second verse is also used during the rideout section
when Neil's not soloing (starting with "When you took me to your room ...").


INTRO:  C#m   F#m   G#7

C#m
It never used to be that bad
F#m                G#7
But neither was it great
C#m
Somewhere in the middle than
F#m         G#7
Content and much too safe
E
Ooh tell me please
                Bsus   B
Why it takes so long
C#m   F#m                         B
To realize when there's something wrong


CHORUS
       E             A
Lay me out with your heart
          B
Now we're gettin' somewhere
        E           A
Push me back to the start
          B
Now we're gettin' somewhere
        E          A
Take me out let me breathe
          B
Now we're gettin' somewhere
              E           A
When I'm with you I don't care
         B
Where it is I'm falling

Sister Madly
(N. Finn)


NOTES:

-- to play this the way it was originally played, all chords on the
verses are bar chords:  Em on the 7th fret, A on the 5th fret, and
C on the 8th fret.

-- in the tab of the Richard Thompson solo, the notation "11^" means to
play the 11th fret but bend the note up (not necessarily all the way up
to the tone of the 12th fret--just a quick, ornamental bend.  you know,
Thompson is famous for this kind of thing.)


INTRO:  Em  A  Em  C

Roll back the tombstone

World Where You Live

NOTE:

-- The opening is, obviously, a keyboard part, which is easily
reproduced on guitar using both the Em9, Em, and A(9) chords.  with
a little bit of work you should be able to find it, but if you
have problems, don't hesitate to ask (marck@nwu.edu).

Em
Expert in bed but come on now

There must be something missing
Em                            D
That golden one leads a double life

But I don't know where you go

So here we lie against each other
These four walls can never hold us
We're looking for wide open spaces
High above the kitchen
And we're strangers here
On our way to some other place
But I don't know where you go
Do you climb into space
To the world where you live
                    G      A    D
The world where you live
                    Em    Em/F#*   Em/G*
