                            Knee Socks - Arctic Monkeys
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Challenger440

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)


This is not my work.
It is Tom Hill's tab (Ver2) along with Chords Ver1 (anonymous).
I simply added the chorus/bridge parts to the tab and specified
how to play the chords.

This is an excellent song and I hope you enjoy.

Verse Chords:
     Em    D    C    B
e|---12----5----8----2----|
B|---12----7----8----4----|
G|---12----7----9----4----|
D|---14----7----10---4----|
A|---14----5----10---2----|
E|---12---------8---------|

First, just the Em is played after each line,
then they are all played in the above order.

For each chord, just strum once and then add 
a little vibrato, preferably with a whammy bar.



Em         
   You got the lights on in the afternoon
                                     Em
And the nights are drawn out long
            
And you're kissing to cut through the gloom
                                    Em
With a cough drop coloured tongue
         D                              C                             
You were sitting in the corner with the coats all piled high
      B                            Em
And I thought you might be mine

     D                                C
In a small world on an exceptionally rainy Tuesday night
       B
In the right place and time


Chorus:

Main Riff


Verse 2:

Em
   Well you cured my January blues, 
                              Em
yeah you made it all alright
        
I got a feeling I might've lit the very fuse 
                                    Em
that you were trying not to light
           D                              C
You were a stranger in my phonebook I was acting like I knew
        B                    Em
Cause I had nothing to lose
         D                               C
When the Winter's in full swing and your dreams just aren't coming true
         B
Ain't it funny what you'll do?


Bridge: (this part played four times, with Joshua Homme's background vocals
(in parenthesis) starting on the third time and continuing into the Chorus.
Always just the Em as the line repeats.)

Em
You and me could've been a team

Each had a half of a king-and-queen seat

Like the beginning of Mean Streets you could Be My Baby


(The zeros lined up but the number's blocked)
(When you've come undone)


Chorus/Outro:

Main Riff

(listen to know when to stop)
