QUEEN OF PORTLAND STREET - Matt Mays
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: ADalziel
This was an older matt mays song that was called G And Me that was recently re-recorded. 
couldn't find any tabs for it and the lyrics people have been submitting are terrible, 
this is my attempt at both.

Tuning: Standard


Intro starts off with Em, G and C chords along with this riff..

G|--0--------0-----0-----0----------0----0---0-------------------|
D|--2-----5-----4-----2-------------2----2---0-------------------|

G|--0-----4-----2-----0-------------0----0---0-------------------|
D|--2-------------------------------2----2---0-------------------|

VERSE:
             G                           C       G
It was that life changing song on that white cassette
       G        C      G
A melody I'll never forget
     G                      C    G
Get me a triple triple and a BCD
      G              C     G
The good times will be on me

CHORUS:
Em            Bm        C     G
Throw in the shifter 1, 2 and 3
Em            G         C      G
Find me the queen of Portland street
Em            Bm        C       G
Out in the five runner out in the rain
Em     G        C    G
Me and G chasing hurricanes


 (repeat the intro riff)


VERSE:
G                 C    G
Come on Lanny cut me a deal
G                    C       G
I work so hard and I never steal
       G             C      G
And the 827 punched out my lights
 G                   C      G
Down at Rudy's last Saturday night


G                          C         G
I know this road like the back of my hand
          G                   C      G
From the donair temple to the L-town sand
       G                     C       G
Me and G will meet you down in the dunes
          G                            C         G
With the moon and the tunes yeah we'll be there soon

CHORUS


(just listen to the song a bunch to get the timing and strumming for this)

e|--2------------------------------------------0-----0---0-------|
B|--1------------------------------------------1-----1---1-------|
G|--2------------------------------------------0-----0---2-------|
D|--0------------------------------------------2-----x---2-------|
A|---------------------------------------------3-----2---0-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
   And the good times they go, flying with the sparrows south. They're flying so


e|--2------------------------------------------0-----0---0-------|
B|--1------------------------------------------1-----1---1-------|
G|--2------------------------------------------0-----0---2-------|
D|--0------------------------------------------2-----x---2-------|
A|---------------------------------------------3-----2---0-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

 hard.   Cause fools like you and me we'll never understand, or get to


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

dismiss, all this ditance.

Go back to main part with a sweet harmonica solo, then repeat the chorus twice.

End on:

Em     G        C    G
Me and G chasing hurricanes          x4
