Cemetery Gates by The Smiths

Tabbed by busrday

Intro:
C   D
C   D
C   D
C   D   G

G
A dreaded sunny day
                                C
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D   C
Keats and Yeats are on your side
G
A dreaded sunny day
                                C
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D   C
Keats and Yeats are on your side
        D          G
While Wilde is on mine

G                                         C
So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
                             D
All those people all those lives
              Em D C
Where are they now?
       G
With loves, with hates
                        C
And passions just like mine

They were born
                D
And then they lived
             Em D C
And then they died

Which seems so unfair
D              G
And I want to cry

               Bm
You say: "ere thrice the sun hath door
                   G
Salutation to the dawn"
         Bm                        G
And you claim these words as your own
     C                   D
But I'm well read, have heard them said
           Em                       C
A hundred times (maybe less, maybe more)

        G
If you must write prose and poems
                                  C
The words you use should be your own
                     D      Em D C
Don't plagiarise or take "on loan"
                  G
There's always someone, somwhere
                       C
With a big nose, who knows
                           D
And who trips you up and laughs
        Em D C
When you fall
                         D
Who'll trip you up and laugh
          G
When you fall

               Bm                G
You say: "ere long done do does did"
 Bm                             G
Words which could only be your own
     C
You then produce the text
       D
From whence was ripped
             Em     C
(some dizzy whore, 1804)

            G
A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're happy
                                C
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D   C
Keats and Yeats are on your side
            G
A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're wanted
                                 C
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
            D           Em       D   C
Keats and Yeats are on your side - but you lose
        D          G
While Wilde is on mine

(Then it ends the same as intro)

The song is spelt 'Cemetry Gates' not Cemetery Gates - this is morrissey's infamous spelling mistake
