			Roads by Portishead
			-------------------
				Tabbed by Frederic Maquet


The Am chord is sometimes "sussed" to add a transition, but mostly
chords
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.


  Intro/Verse:
   Am              G6         Fmaj7    E7                F       G
Am
e:-----------------0-----|----1--------0----|------|--------------------

B:-----------------0-----|----1--------0----|------|--------------------

G:----5------------0-----|----2--------1----|------|---0h2-----0h4-----5

D:-7--------7------2-----|----2--------0----|--x2--|---0h3-----0h5-----7

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,
    		      Am
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)

Until:

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

Break:
------
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
e:--0---------------0-----3--0--|
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..
E:--0---------5-----------3--3--|
