'Switching off' from Cast of Thousands 
Tabbed by W.M.Lewis (wade_lewis@yahoo.com)

CHORDS: Verse & Bridge (B, F#, G#m, E); Chorus (E, F#, B)

VERSE 1
B                                    F# 
Last of the men in hats hops off the coil
    G#m           E 
And a final scene unfolds inside
B                                     F#
Deep in the rain of sparks behind his brow
     G#M                  E
Is a part replayed from a perfect day
B                                  F#
Teaching her how to whistle like a boy
G#M                  E
Love's first blush


CHORUS 1
E              F#
Is this making sense?
                    E
What am I trying to say?
              F#
Early evening June
                      E
This room and a radio play
               F#
This I need to save
                  E
I choose my final thoughts today
F#                 B
Switching off with you


VERSE 2
All the clocks give in
And the traffic fades
And the insects like, like a neon choir
The instant fizz
Connection made
And the curtains sigh 
In time 
With you


CHORUS 2
You, the only sense the world has ever made
Early evening June
This room and a radio play
This I need to save
I choose my final scene today
Switching off


BRIDGE
B              
Ran to ground, ran to ground
    F#           G#M                    E   
But I came off, I came off pretty well, I came off pretty well
B                             F#
Ran to ground, ran to ground, for a while there
G#m                          E
But I came off pretty well, and I came off pretty well
E   F#    B
Ah ah ah ah
B
(Deep in a rain of sparks behind his brow)
E   F#    B
Ah ah ah ah


CHORUS 3 
You, the only sense the world has ever made
This I need to save
A simple trinket locked away
I choose my final scene today
Switching off with you

during the verse, after the E major, an E minor is played. good tab anyway.

A much easier way to play this would be to move all the chords a half-step up, making it: B=C F#=G G#m=Am and E=F. Obviously this means the vocals would move up as well, however.
