Song:   Now My Heart Is Full
Album:  Vauxhall and I
Tabbed by: Scott Imison (scottimison@yahoo.co.uk)

I searched the whole of the web for this tab, but couldn't find it anywhere,
so here are the chords for the fantastic 1st song on Vauxhall and I.

Standard tuning (EADGBE)
Intro: A D (barre chords, see below). After playing the D, slide up to an
       open E barre for one note. Listen to the record and you will know   
       what I mean. Only use the D barre chord for the intro and first
       verse, use open D the rest of the time.

Verse:  A                  D       E    A                      D       
      There's gonna be some trouble, A whole house will need rebuilding
        E  F#m                      E                        D
       and everyone I love, in the house will recline on an analyst's
                    A
       couch quite soon.
             F#m                             E                    D
       Your father cracks a joke and in the usual way empties the room
             E
       Tell all of my...
Pre-
Chorus?    A                        F#m             D
       ...friends, I don't have too many, just some raincoated lover's
            E
       puny brothers.
        A                              F#m
       Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt, rush to danger wind up nowhere,
       D                              E
       Patric Doonan, raised to wait, I'm tired again, I tried again, 


Chorus:      A      A/G#     F#m E A     A/G#     F#m  E (rundown using
        And Now my heart is full, now my heart is full,    barre chords)
               A           A/G#     F#m         E
        and I just can't explain so I won't even try to
 
Repeat chorus chords once more, then instrumental break of A.

Comes back in on pre-chorus, same chords, different lyrics:
      
       Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt, every jammy stressford poet,
       loafing oafs in all-night chemists,loafing oafs in all-night chemists
       underact, express depression, ahh but bunny I loved you,
       I was tired again, I tried again... repeat chorus to end.

Chords used:    A     D   F#m     E   D(open) A/G#
            E---5-- --5-- --2-- --0-- ---2-- --5--
            B---5-- --7-- --2-- --0-- ---3-- --5--
            G---6-- --7-- --2-- --1-- ---2-- --6--
            D---7-- --7-- --4-- --2-- ---0-- --7--
            A---7-- --5-- --4-- --2-- ---x-- --7--
            E---5-- --x-- --2-- --0-- ---x-- --4--

Thats all folks, enjoy!!

Great start. The D chord in the intro and the first part of the verse is really an E7sus, which is critical to the warm sound of this song, so choose your favorite voicing (020230, 024230, 020232, or 077770).

All A/G# chords are more easily voiced as Amaj7 chords (002120 or 576600).

The Pre-Chorus can be fleshed out with some passing chords:
A Amaj7 F#m F#m7
...friends, I don't have too many,
D A Bm7 E
just some raincoatted lovers, puny brothers
A Amaj7 F#m F#m7
Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt, rush to danger wind up nowhere,
D E E7
Patric Doonan, raised to wait, I'm tired again, I tried again,

which suggest a nice descending bassline: A G# F# E D C# B C# E

The E7sus also appears in the chorus:
A Amaj7 E7sus E
Now my heart is full

Awesome! Thanks, modalmixture! The original tab is very nice, but your additions really bring it to life! Would there be any chance to have the entire song transcribed with your chords?

This is an excellent improvement!

I think the one final thing that could be fixed is the "room" bit (one of my favorite parts in the song), which I believes goes like this:

F#m E C#m
Your father cracks a joke and in the usual way empties the room
D E
Tell all of my...

(note the C#m chord) which gives a nice c#m-d-e progression leading to the chorus.
