Tuning: Standard
This is the capo version of Cornerstone chords by Robert Farell that was submitted
by MyNameIsRamone.

Thanks a lot you two for making and submitting this tab here.

I think it would be a lot easier for some novice player to play this song without
the bar chords :) so i made the capo version of it.
But i still can’t figure out how to play the Cm while placing your capo on the 2nd fret so I
guess you still have to play the chord like this:

Cm: (335543)

CAPO ON 2nd FRET

Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)


[Intro]

G


[Verse 1]

G
I thought I saw you in the battleship
C                    Am
but it was only a look-a-like
G
She was nothing but a vision trick
C              Am
Under the warning light
Em                 G                                   Em
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
G
But my chances turned to toast
C                              Am                         G                   (Em   G   Em)
When i asked her if i could call her your name

G
I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
C                     Am
Huddled up in a wicker chair
G
I wandered over for a closer look
C                          Am
And kissed who ever was sitting there
Em                G                              Em
She was close, and she held me very tightly
G
'Til I asked awfully politely, please

C            Am           G
Can I call you her name.

(To transition into the chorus play this; G Em G Em Em, listen out for the strumming)


[Chorus]

C                                          Am
And I elongated my lift home,
Em                                                   C
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
Am
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
D
And kept my shortcuts to myself
G C Am 
(Come in with G at the end of the chorus and play these chords like in the verse)


[Verse 2]

G
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
C                        Am
Messing with the smoke alarm,
G
It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
C                     Am
And she had a broken arm,
Em                 G                                   Em
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
G
And she wrote it out in letra-set
C           Am                     Bm
No, you can't call me her name


[Bridge]

G                               Bm
Tell me where's your hiding place
G                     Bm
I'm worried I'll forget your face
Em
And I've asked everyone
Am                                 D                       
I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along


[Chorus]

C                                          Am
And I elongated my lift home,
Em                                                   C
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
Am
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
Cm
And kept my shortcuts to myself


[Solo]

G C Am x2 (Play this like you would in the verse)
Em Am
C D


[Verse 3]

G
I saw your sister in the cornerstone
C                             Am
On the phone to the middle man
G
When I saw that she was on her own
C                             Am
I thought she might understand
Em                              G
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
Em             G                                       C
She said i'm really not supposed to but yes,
                              Am                   G
You can call me anything you want.

Maybe you should replace Dm with Cm, which is relative to the capo. Other than that, excellent!
