"stretch out and wait" by the smiths
from the album "louder than bombs"
tab'ed by stephen cheng (cheng@utdallas.edu)

this one sounds rather nice on an accoustic guitar and, as there is no
instrument break, particularly suitable as a solo. the song is in 6/8
time, and each dash of each bar denotes 1/4 note, except the first and
last dash of each bar, which are used 'cos it looks nicer. the tab more
or less indicates the chord positions, so you should strum through the
song as you sing along. ..oh, and you don't need to capo! wow! ;)

    on the high rise estate
    what's at the back of your mind?
    on a three-day debate
    on the high rise estate
    what's at the back of your mind?
    two icy-cold hands conducting the way
    it's the eskimo blood in my veins
    amid the concrete and clay
    and general decay
    nature must still find a way
    so ignore all the codes of the day
    let your juvenile impulses sway
    this way and that way and
    this way and that way
    god, how sex implores you
