Rotten Town (Acoustic)
Ludo
Prepare the Preparations

This beginning is borrowed from the intro tab that was previously posted.  Thanks 
for the help.  I added the full chords to it.  While the acoustic version 
recording clearly has multiple guitar tracks, this sounds good for one person playing.

         Am              Dm              Am      E       Am      Am

(The above is played for the first verse and the first half of the second verse)

Verse 1:
      Am                   Dm
'Twas quite the inky black night
        Am
All the weather vanes were turning
        E                             Am
And the constable was burning out his light
     Am                   Dm
When low our anchors went down, barnacle bound
    Am
The men were up and churning
         E                                  Am
Yes, and soon the square was burning to the ground

Walkup
   Am    G  Am

Prechorus:

    Dm                    E
And oh the flames were as gold

Chorus:

               Am     F
I scowl at the angry moon
     C                    G
I am sick on myself I'm a bum
              Am
What have I become
            F          E
A drunken maroon run aground
               Am     Am Am E Am
In this rotten town

Verse 2:

     Am                  Dm
It's been a fortnight or two
    Am
The mutineers are plotting against
    E                             Am
the captain as I'm rotting in the goo

(palm mute)
    Am
The constable was set to drown while the shabby scabs that went to town were 
Dm
reconnoitering with blades and gun
        Am
But the ale had started spilling
         E                              Am
Yes, and soon the crew was killing everyone

(walkup)

Prechorus 2:

    Dm                          E
And all the streets burned with gold, 
     Dm                    E
But, oh,  my bones were so cold
        
Chorus: (slightly different)

               Am     F
I scowl at the angry moon
     C                    G
I am sick on myself I'm a bum
              Am
What have I become
            F          C
A drunken maroon run aground
G              E
In this rotten town

Bridge:

  A
I stumble down the harbor to the tavern on the square
                                 E
And heard a raucous ruckus as it rang
A
From some foul inebriates
     D
Some men I used to call my mates
     A                E                 A
Were lost in song and this is what they sang

They sang,
  A                                      E
"Heigh, hi, yo, ho! O'er the Atlantic we go
A
Drinking 'till we all get sick
    D
And coming up with limericks
       A             E               A
But we never quite remember how they end"

      F#m              D
I can see my childhood home
  A                    E
I think of my dear old mum
              Am     Am Am E Am 
What have I become

Chorus: (same chords as the first chorus)

I scowl at the angry moon
I am sick on myself I'm a bum
What have I become
A drunken maroon run aground
In this rotten town (I scowl at the angry moon)

I am sick on myself I'm a bum
What have I become
A drunken maroon run aground
In this rotten town (I scowl at the angry moon)

I am sick on myself I'm a bum
What have I become
A drunken maroon run aground
In this rotten town (In this rotten)
In this rotten, In this rotten town
