            The Songs of Danny Galway - Prefab Sprout
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Prefab Sprout 
The Songs of Danny Galway (2013) 
(McAloon)

From: "Crimson/Red"

Interesting chords and voicings, open chords and complex textures. Here’s 
my reading of this beautiful song.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
CHORDS/SPECIAL VOICINGS

There are different ways of playing this chord I call “Fsus2/A”. I think I 
hear different voicings in verse and chorus (as pointed out below). But it 
is of course not necessary to play these variations, I just think it sounds 
nice. You may as well just take the first voicing and use it throughout the 
song. One can even use it to substitute the “Fmaj7(add9)” in the chorus. 
They’re all really close.

            E-A-D-G-B-E
Fsus2/A     x-0-3-0-1-3 (INTRO)
Fsus2/A     x-0-3-5-6-3 (VERSE)
Dm7         0-x-0-2-1-1
Gsus4       3-x-0-0-1-3
Cmaj7       x-3-2-0-0-0
Fmaj7(add9) 1-x-2-2-1(3)
G7sus4      3-x-0-0-1-1

  C            Cmaj7  Fsus2/A
I met him in a Dublin bar
    Dm7                Gsus4  G
The sorcerer from Wichita

A range of powers at his command
   Am                        Fmaj7
He summoned ghosts of lovers sleeping
Fmaj7                   Dm7
Soldiers dying far from home
       C            Cmaj7
Like a stone into a well
