Manic Street Preachers - Golden Platitudes

Tabbed by: Pinky_Floyd
Email: pinkyfloyd.uk@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Intro, Piano: D  Bm

Verse 1:
D (10th fret 'F' Shape)        Bm (7th fret barre)
The platitudes they all dissolved
                                D (10th fret 'F' Shape)
They got too deep, got too involved
                          Bm (7th fret barre)
The platitudes just interludes 
                                 A (Normal chords from here on)
To break the trust with me and you


Verse 2:
                   Em
Oh what a shangri-la 
                     G
Oh what a shell we are
                        D
Oh what a mess we've made 
                        A
What happened to those days
                             Em
When everything seemed possible
                         G
With no-one to tell you no
                        D
Where did the feeling go?
                      A
Where did it all go wrong?
                     Em
Born to be a communist
                           G
But then the marriage failed
                     D
As did the partnership

Verse 3:
                              Bm (7th fret barre)
The platitudes they all dissolved
                                D (10th fret 'F' shape)
They got too deep, got too involved
                           Bm (7th fret barre)
The platitudes just interludes 
                                  A (Normal chords from here on)
To break the trust with me and you


Verse 3:
                            Em
I fell back in love with love
                            G
I know that it might sound odd
                        D
The liberal left destroyed
                  A
Every bit of our youth
                         Em
Left with the barest of bones
                     G
Leaving us all with holes
                      D
Where did it all go wrong?
                       A
Where did the feeling go?
                   Em
Why colonise the moon
                      G
When every different kind 
                    D
Of desperation exists?
                 A
In every single home
                      Em
Where did the feeling go?
                       G
Where did the feeling go?
                     D
Where did it all go wrong?

Great tab mate thx- if you've got time could you just clarify the interlude as I'm not sure how that works

Thanks for the rating. I'll take a look at tabbing the interlude for you in a better way and do an update. Sorry for the confusion, it's my first go at this!

Here you go, I've updated the main tab but it will take a day or two to filter through. Not sure about some of the chord names as I used a generator to get the names but if you play what's in the tab it should sound correct:

Interlude x2:

D Em D G G D Em D

B|--333----5----7----8----888----7----5----3--|
