Queens of the Stone Age - Like Clockwork

This tab is a work in progress and will be updated and improved upon



eb Tuning


You'll need to listen to the song for the timings of the chords as it can be a little 
tricky at first.

Intro

F#m A E C#m


Verse 1:

F#m           A
Everyone it seems,
E                C#m
has somewhere to go.

F#m                         A
And the faster the world spins,
E                            C#m
the shorter the lights will glow.

      F#m                   A
And I'm swimming in the night.
E                 C#m
chasing down the moon.

F#m                  A
The deeper in the water
E                   C#m
the more I long for you



Chorus 1:

    B                                 G#m
And most of what you see my dear is purely for show
        F#m                  D                 C#m
because not everything that goes around comes back around you know

   B                            G#m
Holding on too long is just a fear of letting go,
        F#m                  D                 C#m
because not everything that goes around comes back around you know

 B
One thing that is clear, it's all downhill from here.






(Long instrumental bit that I haven't gone through yet- feel free to figure it out and 
post it in the comments)






Verse 2:

F#m                       A
The love light in your hand,
E              C#m
cleverly disguised.

F#m                     A
All the promises of stone,
E                C#m
crumble in the night.


Chorus 2:


  B                           G#m
Most of what you see my dear is worth letting go
        F#m                  D                 C#m
because not everything that goes around comes back around you know
  B                         G#m
Holding on too long is just fear of what to show
        F#m                  D                 C#m
because not everything that goes around comes back around you know
F#m                  D                 C#m
not everything that goes around comes back around you know

B                                                  C#m
One thing that is clear, it's all downhill from here
End on C#m

sounds good, one suggestion is that from listening to the track it sounds better if you play all the chords one bar back, so the chord sequence is
FM, G#, D#, CM
GREAT ALBUM, GREAT SONG!

The chords have been written in relation to the E-flat tuning though(E♭).

So yeah, if you just wanted to play it in standard tuning, play them down one bar like your chords there.
