gone

Fade out on strumming Amaj7 to Dmaj7

Words
-----

Half an hour, change your strings and tune up
Sizing the room up, checking the bar

Local girls, unspoken conversation
Misinformation, plays guitar

They say Jonah he was swallowed by a whale,
But I say there's no truth to that tale
I know Jonah, he was swallowed by a song

No one gives their dreams away too lightly
They hold them tightly, warm against cold

One more year of travelling round the circuit
Then you can work it into gold

They say Jonah he was swallowed by a whale,
But I say there's no truth to that tale
I know Jonah, he was swallowed by a song

Here's to all the boys who came along
Carrying soft guitars and cardboard cases
All night long
Do you wonder where those boys have gone?
Do you wonder where those boys have gone?

Great song and this tab is really fine, too - thank you!

One correction on what seems to be a typo:
Chorus, bar 9 should read "Dm7" not Dmaj7.

And a suggestion for the Interlude:
Bar 4 where it reads D/G# here - could that rather be E7/G# (4-x-0-1-0-x)?

Well spotted, thats managed to elude me, I'll put it in for a correction, and while I personally find playing D/G# easier, I may just alter it to be E7/G# as its a little easier to move into.

Cheer for the input :)
