Roads by Portishead

The Am chord is sometimes "sussed" to add a transition, but mostly
are just strummed once with lots of echo and reverb and a bit of
distortion.  The strumming can be slightly tricky if you're singing at
the same time, so listen to the record to get it right.


   Am              G6         Fmaj7    E7                F       G
D:-7--------7------2-----|----2--------0----|--x2--|---0h3-----0h5-----7-| x2

Drums come in...

[Verse 1]
Am     G6              Fma7  E7             Am
  Oho,   can't anybody see?       You gotta walk to find me,
G6                     Fmaj7       E7
  Never found our way,  regardless,  of what they say
F                G       Am                F
   How can it feel, this wrong?  From this moment,
            G          Am
How can if feel, this wrong?

[Verse 2] (same chords as previously) Chords have more echo here
Am        G6                  Fmaj7      E7      Am
    Stoned, in the morning light,   I feel,   no more
        G6  Fmaj7    E7           F                G
Can I say,    frozen,   to myself, I got nobody on my side,
And surely that ain't right
F       G                    Am
           Surely that ain't right.

[Verse 3]
Same as verse 1, except with strings..Also, 2nd Am is sussed,
if you see what I mean...(play 2nd Am as Am->Asus4->G6)


F            G          Am               F
  How can it feel, this wrong, from this moment
           G          E7
How can it feel, this wrong?

Play intro (with a lot of bass A, G, F, E) up to:

F            G          Am               F
  How can it feel, this wrong, from this moment
           G          E7
How can it feel, this wrong?

Play Verse 1 again (the same way as in intro).
Ends on:                 Am
                "...this wrong."

Other ways of playing some chords:

    Fmaj7   Amsus4  Am    G6 or
B:--1---------5-----1-----5--0--| The 1st G6 voicing is a bit crap,
G:--2---------7-----2-----4--0--| but Fmaj7 and Am and 2nd G6 are easier
D:--3---------7-----2-----x--0--| to play like this on an accoustic
A:--3---------7-----0-----5--2--| and sound better..

[B]EXELLENT[/B] tab!! i played it at the last open mic, and some random girl came up and kissed me and asked for a date!! thanks a bunch.

however--the second line is "we've got a war to fight" not you've gotta walk to find me...
