Tuning: Half-Step Down

This acoustic-orientated tune is the fifth track off the band's Red Carpet Massacre
Dom Brown is actually playing the song a half step lower here. But overall, the chords used
are pretty simple to play and are quite easy to play throughout the song. There are no 
guitar parts used during the song either. A huge thanks to “Telecaster” for pointing
the song’s tuning as well!

Here are the chord figures used during the verses of the song. These are also used
the Middle 8, where Nick Rhodes' keyboards are the most prominent. Be sure to listen to the
to hear how Dom Brown is strumming them exactly.

   Em        G        D        A
e|--0--------3--------2--------0-----------------------|
B|--0--------3--------3--------2-----------------------|
G|--0--------0--------2--------2-----------------------|
D|--2--------0--------0--------2-----------------------|
A|--2--------2--------0--------0-----------------------|
E|--0--------3-----------------------------------------|

These chords are played during the choruses in the song.

   Em        F        C      Bmaj
e|--0--------1--------0--------1-----------------------|
B|--0--------1--------1--------3-----------------------|
G|--0--------2--------0--------3-----------------------|
D|--2--------3--------2--------3-----------------------|
A|--2--------3--------3--------1-----------------------|
E|--0--------1-----------------------------------------|

These are the chords played during the "What's so funny?" parts of the song right before
verses.

e|--0--------3-----------------------------------------|
B|--2--------3-----------------------------------------|
G|--2--------0-----------------------------------------|

Along with the proper chord arrangements, here are the official lyrics for Box Full O'
Make sure you listen to the song to get a proper idea on how many times to play each one
moving on to the next arrangement.

Em     G   D   A
at the sharp end of the view
the edge of me and you
in all good sense dare tread no further
and as the ghost will shiver trees
how I'm trembling on my knees
but I'm still drawn on by the murmur

Em     F       C    Bmaj
are you laughing at me now?
in my circumstance
when still I wear your crown
my life's penitence for what?

A    G
what's so funny
box full o' honey

Em     G   D   A
what I thought a pretty tune
was howling at the moon
to keep me company this evening
it's so lonely in the dirt
a-scratching at the hurt
that I so generously did leave you

Em     F       C    Bmaj
are you laughing at me now?
in my circumstance
when still I wear your crown
some cruel penitence for what?

A    G

what's so funny
box full o' honey

Em     G   D   A    (play twice during the middle 8)

Em     G   D   A
is she flirting with me now
ooh is she dallying with me now?

Em     F       C    Bmaj
ooh are you flirting with me now?
you'll always be my
queen of tumbledown
miss melancholy

Em     F       C    Bmaj
are you laughing at me now?
in my circumstance
when still I wear your crown
and my life's a penitence for what?

A
what's so funny?

G
ain't it funny

F
box full o' honey

End on Em
