         Dublin - Prefab Sprout
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning: Half step down (Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb)

Prefab Sprout 
Dublin (1985, released 1989) 
(McAloon)

From: "Protest Songs"

This beauty has interesting chords thus creating a special texture. 
It is mostly picked.

It is not easy to find out what is played and even though I think I got 
close, there are parts where I'm not sure at all. Especially the section 
I tabbed out below doesn't not seem elegant enough to me. Suggestions 
for corrections are highly welcome!

I don't really know the names of some of the chords. But I didn't want to 
just "number" them, so I tried to name them anyway. Whoever knows more, 
please comment!

D/F#     F#m7 Bm7      Em11
Who does not adore the sound
   A                     Em11
Of music in the names of towns
   D11                              A7sus4
To build a city on such picturesque ground
     Em         Bsus2/13  Bm13    A7/13
That takes some sort  of  flair

  D/F#    F#m7     Bm7    Em11
We draw a line the ink is fear
A                             Em11
You stay that side we'll stay here
     D11                   A7sus4
It's far harder to keep it up
Em      Bsus2/13  Bm13    A7/13
Than to tear  it  down

        Gmaj7                D/F#
Does it take you back to the kind of world
Gmaj7                    [A] Aadd9  A
Hindsight calls the good old days?
         Gmaj7                 D/F#
Now that there's no room in an Einstein world
    Gmaj7           [A] Aadd9  A
For simple cause and effect

  D/F#     F#m7     Bm7    Em11
Behind the soft and peachy skin
      A               Em11
Where D.N.A. or God begin
D11                       A7sus4
Where sub-Gaelic rot sets in
     Em      Bsus2/13  Bm13    A7/13
With stories from your mother
   D/F#      F#m7  Bm7    Em11
In myths and less exalted forms
    A                       Em11
The heady cocktail glory is born
    D11                     A7sus4
You know it's not a bottled storm
   Em     Bsus2/13 Bm13    A7/13
So why do you    indulge it?
