                          Here's My Head On A Plate                             
                             SHOES AND SOCKS OFF
                     Robin Hood Waiter Champion Have-Not
                        
                        Words and music by Toby Hayes.


Tune half a step down.
Play the root notes with your thumb just before the first and third beat,
strum the chords upwards on the first and third and tap the body on the second 
and fourth.
It's those root notes that make the song a bit of a pain, but they won't take long
to get the hang of. Give the song a listen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1LQTfcoHcQ)
or check the Guitar Pro version once it's up.


INTRO AND VERSE 1:
Played twice alone and then twice with the words.

        "Is that the time? Is that the time?
         Where are you now? To be a fly on the wall.
         A fly on the wall, squinting at you,
         picking out the shapes in the dark.
         Can you believe this?

         So talk. Just talk.
         What are you saying? Bigger fish to fry?
         Bigger fish to fry. I'm breathing embers.
         I dare you to remember daring
         to get a little closer."

        "The line goes dead."



VERSE 2:
Go round the usual chords like before, but this time only twice.

        "Every time, every time
         I stand down, I catch a bullet in my
         teeth. Boy, do I feel sheepish.
         It never was, never will be
         so I'm keeping it together.

         Okay, okay, Silly me,
         Here's my head on a plate,
         my head on a plate. I get the message,
         sitting back down with whiplash
         and crystal in my limbs,"


CHORUS 2:
Same as before, and followed by the main progression for however long you fancy.

        "and I'm still here."



Hope this is of any use to you.
Cheers.
