Last Cigarette (Boo Hewerdine)
------------------------------

This is on Boo Hewerdine's third album, Baptist Hospital. Written by Boo
Hewerdine, Gary Clarke and Neill MacColl. It's played in A (capo at 2nd fret).
All the below is written as though played in G (at the nut), so add 2 to all
the tab sections if you're using a capo.


[Intro] :

The moon in the morning is watching the rain turn to snow

    D/A                                          G
and outside my window, sometimes the rain falls harder

     G      G/a  G/b   G   G/B
than you'll ev - er know

Am+
sometimes the things that you love in the night

     A+                          Am
the morning will choose to forget


[Chorus] :

* is actually Guitar2 (electric), but you can get away with it on
  Guitar1 if you hit it hard
? is actually piano, but it works on Guitar1
/ is a slide up
\ is a slide down
~~~ is vibrato

Struming: The Intro & the first line of the verse's bassline is G B D B, so
hold the shape of the G chord throughout, but accentuate the 6th 5th 4th 5th
strings. The rest of the verse follows a similar strumming pattern, except you
don't vary the bass note.

Here's the instrumental bits  written out in A (i.e. this is what you play if
you're using a capo at the 2nd fret)
