Subject: Traffic by Stereophonics

                           Traffic - Stereophonics

                   From the album, "Word Gets Around" (1997)

                 ---------------------------------------------

                                *LP Version*

                          [Transcribed by TNT SHWE]


Notes:

          I first heard this on the radio and I liked it immediately.  This is a real good catchy tune and 
another good example of poetry with music!  Play this acoustically for the best results!

          In two of the verses there is a part in which the hammer-on and pull-off effect takes action 
like in the Intro section.  These parts are marked by an asterisk (*) next to the chord (listen to the track 
hear what I'm on about).

Recommended Chord Positions:

                                Em     xO221O
                                D      x32O1O
                                Asus2  xxO23O
                                C/B    x3321O

Verse 1:

                              D
            We all face the same way

                             Em
            Still it takes all day

                             C/B
            Take a look to my left

                                     D
            Pick out the worst and the best

                            C (*)
            She paints her lip

                     Em
            Greasy and thick

                             C/B
            Another mirror stare

                             Asus2    D (*)
            And she's going where?

Verse 2:

           (Same chords and rhythm as Verse 1)


            Another office affair

            To kill an unborn scare?

            You talk dirty to a priest

            Makes you human at least

            Is she running away

            To start a brand new day?

            Or she going home?

            Why's she driving alone?

Chorus 1:

                C/B    Asus2 D
             Is anyone going anywhere?

             C/B        Asus2    D        Em   C/B   D
             Everyone's gotta be somewhere

Verse 3:

           (Same chords and rhythm as Verses 1 and 2)


            She got a body in the boot

            Or just bags full of food?

            Those are models legs

            But are they womens are they mens?

            She shouts down the phone

            Missed a payment on the loan

            She gotta be above the rest

            Keeping up with the best

Chorus 2:

                C/B    Asus2 D
             Is anyone going anywhere?

             C/B        Asus2    D        Em   C/B   D
             Everyone's gotta be somewhere

Bridge:

           D   C/B   {x2}

           C/B   D

Verse 4:

           (Same chords and rhythm as Verses 1, 2 and 3)


            Waits tables for a crook?

Wrote a hard back book?

You teach kids how to read?

Or sell your body on the street?

A nurse without a job?

Another uptown snob?

But have I got you all wrong?

Chorus 3:


                C/B    Asus2 D
             Is anyone going anywhere?

                C/B    Asus2 D
             Is anyone going anywhere?

                C/B    Asus2 D
             Is anyone going anywhere?

             C/B        Asus2    D        Em   C/B   D
             Everyone's gotta be somewhere

Outro:

          D   Em   C/B   D   {x4}
