Continuing my dump of O'Rourke tabs + chords with Hotel Blue, from his latest record 'Simple Songs' ('there
are no simple songs — only simple people'). This I believe was originally an instrumental or some such on a
Japanese film he scored of the same name,  海燕ホテル・ブルー. I've listed it as intermediate, but that's only on
account of some chords I wouldn't expect a novice to know. It's not really a particularly difficult song
though. Where I've written C/B play:

e|-0-|
B|-1-|
G|-0-|
D|-0-|
A|-2-|
E|---|

It's actually a Cmaj9/B, but I've never seen it referred to as that here, so for simplicity's sake I went with
the 'wrong' name. Anyway, enjoy!

[Intro]
F#m G Bm
F#m A#m Bm Em A

Between the F#m and G, play the 2nd fret then the 4th fret on the G-string.  Between the G and Bm, and between
the F#m and A#m play an open A string. Between the Bm and F#m, play an open E-string. For the A, play
this riff:

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

[Verse]
F#m                  G        Bm
That shadow you're seeing
     F#m           A#m
Has nowhere to go
        Bm
There's no way of saying
  Em            A
Just go home

F#m                  G          Bm
There's no sense in wearing
          F#m       A#m
White so you can't be
        Bm
Seen out in the open
  Em                    A
There's always me

[Chorus]
C       C/B             Am      Eb
Come on board with us now
C       C/B        Am
It's a long way to go
    G           F
And nowhere to stow
  Em            D
Where you'd be allowed

[Verse]
F#m                 G           Bm
There's no harm in asking
           F#m          A#m
It won't change a thing
   Bm
I could or couldn't do for you
Em          A
On the way

F#m              G       Bm
We'd better get going
          F#m            A#m
Not much left to see of you
                   Bm
If we wait for the sun to 
Em          A
go down

[Instrumental]
C C/B Am Eb
C C/B Am
G F
Em D

[Outro]
C       C/B             Am
Come on board with us now
                    F  C
Cause all seats are taken
      Bb    F
Been taken away
      Dm        Am
Far away

Repeat last 3 lines thrice, omitting the last line on the last repeat.
