Song: Innocent Smile
Band: Ash
Album: 1977 (released in 1996)
Written by Mark Hamilton
Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)

This is a truly great song, and the only one on the album written by 
Ash's great bass player, Mark Hamilton.  It's a cool song to play, and 
not too hard, either.


Verse:
E----------
B----------
G----------
D--2----4--
A--2----4--
E--0----2--
   E5   F#5

Chorus:
E-------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------
G---------9------5----------5-----9---------
D---5-----9------5---5------5-----9-----4---
A---5-----7------3---5------3-----7-----4---
E---3----------------3------------------2---
    G5    E5ii   C5  G5     C5    E5ii  F#5 


Bridge: (1:33 into the song)
E--------------------------
B--------------------------
G---------7-----5----------
D---5-----7-----5-----2----
A---5-----5-----3-----2----
E---3-----------------0----
    G5    D5    C5    E5

Then play E5 - C5 during  the "hanging from the sky" part.

This riff is played at the end of the E5-C5 progression:
E-12-12-12-12--
B--------------
G--------------

Then there's this octave solo:
E--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G--------------------------------------------------
D-2-2-2-0-2---3-3-3--[Repeat, then:]---------------
A-------------------------------------12s11-///-0--
E-0-0-0-0-0---1-1-1--------------------------------  

This is played 2x:
E--9-9-9-9--11-11-11-11-
B-----------------------
G-----------------------

Then:
E-12-12-12-12--14-14-14-14-16-16-16-9-9-9-9-
B-------------------------------------------
G-------------------------------------------
Repeat this, and go to the 17th fret the second time.

The next part of the song is just  C#5 - F#5, 
then it goes to E5 - F#5 at the end when the 1st verse is
repeated.

Lyrics: (my version! These are not easy to decipher)
[Verse]
She comes out of town as the sun comes down,
Fly with your friends with the stars alive. (2x)
Running on a high from the spirit inside, 
Taking on the world with an innocent smile. (2x)
[Chorus]
Something knocked me down and I fell right to the
ground. I lost it all in one life, just wandering around.
[Verse]
Vandalism's fun when there's nothing to do,
Breaking through a wall, say it wasn't you. (2x)
Big daddy rocket take you for a ride,
shining to a rocket headed for the sky.(2x)
[Chorus]
[Bridge]
That's when I got this shield up, re-awoke my mind.
Swinging from a chandelier, hanging from the sky.
You turned me all around, only took your smile, 
Swinging from a chandelier, hanging from the sky.
Hanging from the sky.
[End]
Running on a high with the spirit inside,
taking on the world with an innocent smile. (4x)
 

That's it!  I know it's probably not perfect, but let me know if you have 
any changes, comments, suggestions, etc.
I hope you enjoy the tab, and I could use some help with these lyrics!
