Band: Tea Party
Song: The Messanger
Tabbed by Deren (deren_s@hotmail.com)
 
NOTES: This is a GREAT song from the Tea Party! 
TUNNING: The Tea Party has had some experiance in some
wierd tunnings. This song is in double drop D. Tune your
low and high E strings down to D. To tune down your low E,
tune it on the 7th fret, to tune your high E hit the harmonic on the 
12th fret of the 4th string (D) and tune the high E to match that pitch.
 
CHORDS USED: (low to high)
 
Bm: x24430
F#: 444x00
G: 555x00
A: 777x00
D: 000xxx
 
NOTE: to get the right sound, bar the F#, G and A chords with your middle finger
in an kind of "S" like position as to mute out the G string and leave the bottom two
strings (B and D) to ring out.
 
INTRO:
 
Bm F# G A
 
on the third time through, guitar 2 picks the chords like this:
     Bm            F#               G                       A

VERSE RIFT:
 
Bm  F#    G      A                   Bm  F#   G    A
Got a letter from a messanger, I read it when it came.
Bm   F#      G                   A     Bm    F#      G       A
It said that you where woulded, you where bound and chained.

You where loved, you where handled. You where poisoned, you where pained.

You could almost touch Heaven, right there in front of you. 
If a teacher sent away on us, And there so much work to do.

For a minute I let my gaurde down, not afraid to be found out.
G   A     G         A    G      A       G        
Completely forgoten, what our fears where all about.
 
Back to VERSE RIFT:
 
Oh no dear, there's no need to be without...

If there's a chance I would take it, this desire I cant kill.
 
Take my heart please dont break it, I will crawl to you for help.

Dude, learn to spell. Woulded? Tunning? Not a bad tab though, it's hard to find good Tea Party Tabs.

I agree, the spelling in the lyrics is absolutely atrocious... "gaurded", "forgoten", "comming", "where" instead of "were"... it goes on and on.
