Intro Guitar: Am  Em   (repeat all the chords 4 times)

Am  Em             Am    Em
I kneel and wait in silence
Am            Em          Am   Em
As one by one the people slip away
Am   Em
Into the night
Am         Em
The quite and empty bodies
Am                Em
Kiss the ground before they pray
Am
Kiss the ground
Em         F
And slip away

Am Em (x4)

Am  Em             Am         Em
I sit    and listen dreamlessly
Am            Em                   Am Em
A promise of salvation makes me stay
Am   Em
Then look at your face
Am             Em
And feel my heart pushed in
Am              Em
As all around the children play

Am                  Em       F
The games they tired of yesterday
F
They play
Am
They play

Am   Em  (x4)

Am    Em           Am
I stand   and hear my voice
Em
Cry out
Am                 Em           Am  Em
A wordless scream at ancient power
Am   Em
It breaks against stone
Am           Em
I softly leave you crying
Am               Em
I cannot hold what you devour
Am                Em
The sacrifice of penance
F          the last chord is: Am
In the holy hour

“OTHER VOICES”
Words by: R.Smith  Music by: The Cure  published by: Fiction Records, 1981
Tabbed by: Winston Campbell & graph_sas


The Tab part tabbed by: Winston Campbell [jieuryli@eden.rutgers.edu]

After waiting such a long time for some one to transcribe this song, I just
decided to figure it out by myself.  I tried doing that months ago and
failed.  But this time around it was not as hard as I thought it was.
Basically (maybe skipping notes), but basically this is how I play it:

The strange intro is something like this:

e -------------0--0------------|
B -0--0--7-----5--5--------0---|
G -4--4--4-----------6-----4---|
D -----------------------------|
A -----------------------------|
E -----------------------------|


The bass riff starts out as:

          Riff 1:
e-------||-----------------|---------------------||
G ------||-----------------|---------------------||
D -4----||----------0------|---------------------||
A ----0-||-2--2-2-2--------|-------------------0-||
E ------||---------------0-|-2--2-2-2-3--2--0----||

The double lines means that you must repeat the riff ending and starting at
the double lines (you are not supposed to play those first two intro notes
again).  This riff (within the double lines) is repeated seven times, then
you play:

e------------------|---------------------|-----------------|
G -----------------|---------------------|-----------------|
D ----------0------|-------------------0-|-2--2-2-2--------|
A -2--2-2-2--------|---------------------|---------------2-|
E ---------------0-|-2--2-2-2-3--2--0----|----------3------|

e----------------------|-----------------|---------------------|
G ---------------------|-----------------|---------------------|
D -------------------0-|-2--2-2-2--------|---------------------|
A -4--4-4-4-5--4--2----|---------------2-|-4--4-4-4-5--4--2--0-|
E ---------------------|----------3------|---------------------|

You play Riff 1 again throughout the verse.  Now, this is the part that may
not be accurate:  the guitar tablature.  I am sure I am pretty close, this is
how I play the guitar part during the verse:

e ----------------------|---------------------|
B ----------------------|-2--2-2-2/3--3--3--3-|
G -4--4-4-4/7--6-6--6-x-|-3--3-3-3/4--4--4--4-|
D -4--4-4-4/7--7-7--7-x-|-4--4-4-4/5--5--5--5-|
A ----------------------|---------------------|
E ----------------------|---------------------|

If you listen to how the guitar is played, you will get the idea.  Now, this
song, believe it or not, has two choruses.  The first chorus comes after the
first verse (obviously).  The bass for it (and I am not perfect on this) is:

  Chorus 1 Bass Riff:
e ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
G ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
D ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
A ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|-----------------||
E ||-2----2--2--2-|-0--0---0--0-|-2--2-2-2-3------|-2--2-2-2-3------||

This is played four times.  It is good to slip that A note for the last time
when going back into Riff 1 for the second verse.  The guitar part for Riff 2
is:

  Guitar Riff 1A:

e ||--------------|-------------|---------------------|-------------------||
B ||-2--2--2--2---|-0-0-0--0--0-|-7--7-7-7-8\7-7-7--7-|-7--7-7-7-8\7-7-7--||
G ||-3--3--3--3---|-0---0--0--0-|-6--6-6-6-7\6-6-6--6-|-6--6-6-6-7\6-6-6--||
D ||-4--4---------|-2------2----|---------------------|-------------------||
A ||--------------|-------------|---------------------|-------------------||
E ||--------------|-------------|---------------------|-------------------||

  Guitar Riff 1B:

e --------------|-------------|----------------------|----------------------|
B -2--2--2--2---|-0---0--0--0-|-7--7-7-7-8/10-10--10-|-7--7-7-7-8/10-10--10-|
G -3--3--3--3---|-0---0--0--0-|-6--6-6-6-7/-9--9---9-|-6--6-6-6-7/-9--9---9-|
D -4--4-----4---|-2------2----|----------------------|----------------------|
A --------------|-------------|----------------------|----------------------|
E --------------|-------------|----------------------|----------------------|

You play Guitar Riff 1A three times, then you play Guitar Riff 2B once.  You
can play around a bit, especially at the F# to Em part.  The second chorus
goes something like this:

e ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|------------------------||
G ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|------------------------||
D ||--------------|-------------|-----------------|------------------------||
A ||-4----4--4--4-|-5--5---5--5-|-----------------|------------------------||
E ||--------------|-------------|-7--7-7-7-5------|-2--2-2-2-3-----0--2--5-||

You play this three times, and on the fourth time, you play only half of it.
Listen to the tape or CD and you will know what I mean.  Anyway, the guitar
for that part is:

e ||-----------|------------|--------------------------|-------------------||
B ||-----------|------------|-12--12-12-12\10-10-10-10-|-7--7-7-7/10-10-10-||
G ||-6--6-6--6-|-7-7--7-7-7-|-11--11-11-11\-9--9--9--9-|-6--6-6-6/-9--9--9-||
D ||-6--6-6--6-|-7-7--7-7-7-|--------------------------|-------------------||
A ||-----------|------------|--------------------------|-------------------||
E ||-----------|------------|--------------------------|-------------------||

Like the bass, repeat this three times and then play half of it.  The song
ends with Riff 1 repeating and there are inaudible sounds of the intro going.
 I hope this has helped.  It may not be perfect and maybe you can formulate
your own transcription of it or whatever.  By the way, here are the lyrics:

You brush past my skin      as soft as fur

Taking hold    I taste your scent
Bm            F#m  A   Bm           F#m  A
Distant noises      of other voices

F#m             A          F#m  Gm  F#m Gm
Pounding in my broken head
F#m              A              F#m  Gm

Change your mind  you're always                        wrong

(always wrong)

Repeat the main riff through the Verse: [Bm, F#m, A]

Come around at christmas I really have to see you
smile at me slyly Another festive compromise
But i live with desertion and eight million people
Distant noises, other voices

Repeat the bridge chords: [F#m, A, F#m, Gm]

Pulsing in my swinging arms
Caress the sound, so many dead
and all the other voices sing
change your mind You're always wrong

(Wrong...)

“THE FUNERAL PARTY”
Words by: R.Smith  Music by: The Cure  published by: Fiction Records, 1981
Tabbed by: Gallagher2006


Tuning: Standard

Easy song to strum along to, but it’s beautiful none the less.

I’ve arranged the song for a capo on the third fret, just to make
the whole thing even easier :P

Chords: (capo 3rd)

C		(x32010)
Am		(x02210)
Fmaj7		(x33210)

C
Two pale figures
Am
Ache in silence
C
Timeless
Am
in the quiet ground
C
side by side
Am
in age and sadness

C / Am
C
I watched
Am
And acted wordlessly
C
As piece by piece
Am
You performed your story
C                 Am
Moving through an unknown past
C               Am
Dancing at the funeral party

Fmaj7 (transition chord for two bars)

C              Am
Memories of childrens' dreams
C
Lie lifeless fading
Am
Lifeless
C                 Am
Hand in hand with fear and shadows
C                 A
Crying at the funeral party

Fmaj7

C
I heard a song
Am
And turned away
C
As piece by piece
Am
You performed your story
C            Am
Noiselessly across the floor
C               Am
Dancing at the funeral party

F

C / Am until end

Enjoy!

These are my chords play over the verse: Em, G, F#

Verse:
Em             G
Stop my flight to fight
     F#
And die
     Em              G            F#
And take a stand to change my life
    Em              G      F#   Em, G, F#
So savage with red desperation
   Em
I clench my hands
     G         F#
You draw your claws
   Em          G           F#
A hidden rage consumes my heart
Em                  G       F#
Fuelled by years of wasted time
   Em
I close my eyes
     G       F#
And tense myself


These are my chords play over the brigde: A, G, A, C

Bridge:
    A
And screaming
         G           A
Throw myself in fury over the edge
     C
And into your blood


Verse: Em, G, F#

Tear at flesh
And rip at skin
And smash at doubt
I have to break you
Fury drives my vicious blows
I see you fall but still I strike you
Again and again
Your body falls
The movement is sharp and clear and pure
And gone
I stop and kneel beside you
Drained of everything but pain

Play the bridge chords: A, G, A, C

   A
And screaming
         G           A
Throw myself in fury over the edge
     C               A
And into your blood
C
  into your blood

F                                A,  G (x2)
Kiss you once and see you writhe
F                               A, G (x2)
Hold you close and hear you cry
F                                  A, G (x2)
Kiss your eyes and finish your life
F              F
Kiss your eyes
Em             G     A, G (x2)
Finish your life

Interlude: F, A, G, A, G (x3)


Verse: Em, G, F#

Again and again
Your body falls
The movement is sharp and clear and pure
And gone
I stop and kneel beside you
Knowing I'll murder you again tonight

Em                   G    F#
Knowing I'll murder you again
Knowing I'll murder you again
Knowing I'll murder you again
Knowing I'll murder you again
Em
Tonight

“THE DROWNING MAN”
Words by: R.Smith  Music by: The Cure  published by: Fiction Records, 1981
Tabbed by: graph_sas

Tuning: normal
Intro: Dm, A, Bb

Riff 1: [Dm, Em, Bb]

    Dm                 A
She stands twelve feet above the flood
    Bb
She stares
Alone
Across the water
     Dm                  A
The loneliness grows and slowly
          Bb
Fills her frozen body
Sliding downwards

Riff 2: [G, F#, Bb]
G              F#
One by one her senses die
    Bb
The memories fade
And leave her eyes
       G                 F#
Still seeing worlds that never were
     Bb                          Repeat Riff 1: [Dm, A, 
x2
And one by one the bright birds leave her ...
                                 Repeat Riff 2: [G, F#, Bb] x 2

Dm               A
Starting at the violent sound
     Bb
She tries to turn
But final
Noiseless
Dm                    A
Slips and strikes her soft dark head
    Bb
The water bows
Receives her

     G                F#    Bb
And drowns her at its ease
 G                F#    Bb
Drowns her at its ease

  Dm                  A
I would have left the world all bleeding
Bb
Could I only help you love
    Dm                 A          Bb
The fleeting shapes so many years ago

So young and beautiful and brave

G               F#
Everything was true
            Bb
It couldn't be a story
   G               F#
I wish it was all true
           Bb
I wish it couldn't be a story

    Dm
The words all left me
A
Lifeless
Hoping
Bb
Breathing like the drowning man
    Dm    A
Oh Fushia
You leave me
Bb                              G, F#, Bb
Breathing like the drowning man
Bb                              G, F#, Bb
Breathing like the drowning man
Repeat Riff 1,and 2 two times alternately to the end...

Dm
Catch me if I fall
            F
I'm losing hold
   Em                          F
I can't just carry on this way
    Dm
And every time
           F
I turn away
 Em
Lose another blind game
     F
The idea of perfection holds me
Dm                       F
Suddenly I see you change
Em
Everything at once the same
        F
But the mountain never moves
Dm
Rape me like a child
                 F
Christened in blood
Am
Painted like an unknown saint
         G
There's nothing left but hope
               Dm
Your voice is dead
And old
            F
And always empty
Em
Trust in me through closing years
F
Perfect moments wait


                  Dm
If only we could stay
Please
               F
Say the right words
Or cry like the stone white clown
     Em
And stand
                   F
Lost forever in a happy crowd
Dm
No one lifts their hands
F
No one lifts their eyes
Em
Justified with empty words
    F
The party just gets better and better

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
Dm               F
I went away alone
Em
With nothing left
         F
But faith
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

AMEN


††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Great job...I'm really enjoying playing this album through. Question on The Drowning Man, are you sure about the Dm-Em-Bb sequence? Sounds better to me as Dm-A-Bb. Thanks!
