                             SHEELA-NA-GIG - Polly Jean Harvey
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: magickmidget
Email: magickmidget@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard; CAPO ON FIRST FRET.

EVERY tab I've seen for this is WRONG. And it's driving me insane.
And so, for real this time: Sheela-Na-Gig by the lovely Polly Jean Harvey.
Chords are all relative to the capo.

I've been trying to show you over and over

Verse (palm muted!):
E       F#       E         F#
Look at these my child-bearing hips
E       F#       E        F#
Look at these my ruby red ruby lips
E       F#       E           F#
Look at these my work strong arms and
E             F#     E           F#
You've got to see my bottle full of charm
E        F#  E       F#
I lay it all at your feet
    E     F#            E
You turn around and say back to me

good tab. is the capo necessary though? i think it sounds better without.

Yes the capo is necessary. When you get to the chorus, you're actually playing a G# but you can't get the G# without a
capo.

Clearly wrong. Wrong chords in the verses (it's very clearly a G, not an F# and it's totally the same chord as in the chorus, anyway), intro riff is completely off too.
