HARBORCOAT (Version 1)


{This song is actually played in Eb on the record. This transcription in
 E won't go along much with the album unless you tune down.}

 {intro   E  G#m  A / Asus2}

 C#m                   E                               A  B
They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
 C#m                   E                               A  B
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
 C#m                   E                               A  B
Metal shoes on wood push through our back
            C#m                E                       A  B
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT"

/F#m   G#m/  x 3     F#m7

{same as before}
They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown

 E     G#m         A/Asus2 E    G#m        A/Asus2
Please find my harborcoat, can't go outside without it
 E     G#m         A/Asus2 E    G#m        A/Asus2
       Find my harborcoat, can't go outside without it

{same as other verses}
They crowded up to Lenin with their noses worn off
A handshake is worthy if it's all that you've got
Metal shoes on wood push through our back
There's a splinter in your eye and it reads "REACT", R-E-A-C-T

{break  Em  with 12th fret harmonics  played fast and furiously}

They shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
Reddened their necks, collared their clothes
Then we danced the dance till the menace got out
She gathered the corners and called it her gown

She said...
{end on F#m}

The second chord of the intro/chorus is wrong in all of these versions. It's still a G#m - it just sounds better than a barred G#m.

Here's the real one. look at the youtube live performances, Buck's hands never leave the first three frets.

E|-2-
B|-0-
G|-1-
D|-1-
A|-x-
