The Sun Never Shines
By Flogging Molly

An adaptation of the mandolin part for the acoustic guitar.

Capo on 5th fret.  All fret numbers relative to the capo.
Also to avoid confusion this tab names chords as if there is no capo.
(See footnote for musically accurate chord names)

Intro:

e----2---0---2---0---2---7-7-7-7---7---5---3---2-2-2-2---|
B----3---3---3---3---3---3-3-3-3---3---3---3---3-3-3-3---|

Verse:

There are only three chords in the song:
    D      G      A
e---2------3------0-|
B---3------3------2-|
G---2------0------2-|
D---0------0------2-|
A---0------2------0-|
E---2------3------0-|

A nice effect is to only play the top four strings (D,G,B,e) in the first verse,
then add in the bass notes for the rest of the song.

D         G           D
I saw her there from afar
                 G
Her hair gray charcoal
        D             A
Takes a drag from her tar
  G            A
I kissed her a smile
        D              G
But her blood red shot eye
                   A                D
Said the sun never shines on closed doors


Chorus:
             G                          D
She said the sun never shines on closed doors
  G                 D          A
I open to find only hurricanes blowin'
G        A               D               G
Take me away back to the green fields of May
            A                          G
Because the sun never shines on closed doors

That’s it!  Enjoy!


Footnote:  For all of you who are curious, the proper names of the chords played in the song
are G, C, and D.  Do with it what you will.
