My tab for Stornoway's Knock Me On The Head from their new album Tales From Terra-Firma.
I think it's pretty accurate, only did it by ear. The E's in verses are played at 
the 7th fret, except for ones before the A7 which are played non-bar version.
Any requests/suggestions/comment post below or email debeaumont.louis@googlemail.com
Chords in brackets means they're not played but that's what fits.


Tuning: D# G# C# F# A# D# (half step down from standard)


Intro: E G#m E G#m B Dm D#m

  
D#m                E                          B                 
There's a hunger in the air and lemons swollen in the trees
D#m  D#m7              E            C#m        G#m     E         A7/G        F#  
When shadows fall across the moon, I strain my ears towards the breeze
D#m                E                      B              
A wasted summer listening, secluded as a cemetery
D#m                E                  C#m      G#m     E     A7         
Withered limbs under the sand for an hourglass eternity

B           C#m            G#m 
You hung an albatross around my neck
B                  C#m             G#m             
When you needed to knock me on the head and say
G              F#
"No! No! No! No!"

D#m               E             A                   B          
Jackal legs and kangal dogs are cloaked in darkest forestry
D#m              E                C#m        G#m      E       A7/G
A woman dangles from a bridge on a thread of silver mercury

B          C#m            G#m 
You hung an albatross around my neck
B                  C#m             G#m              
When you needed to knock me on the head and say
G             F#
"No! No! No! No!"

              B           C#m      G#m                 
I've seen the ghost of my anathema upon my bed
B                C#m              B/D#          
I need a body to knock me on the head and say
Em            E     
"No! No! No! No!"


Instrumental: E


D#m               E                               B                 
I saw a feathered silhouette on the crest of unforgiving waves
D#m              E                                B    C#     F#
It hovered over salty air and I couldn't tear my eyes away
D#m                   E             A              B         
And somewhere in between the lines I drifted into fantasy
D#m                 E             G          E          A7/G      
But you're the only open book, a portal to a star-crossed sea


(B)        (C#m)         (G#m) 
You hung an albatross around my neck
(B)                (C#m)          (G#m)            
When you needed to knock me on the head and say
G             F#
"No! No! No! No!"


              B           C#m      G#m             
I've seen the ghost of my anathema upon my bed
B               C#m              B/D#        G
I need a body to knock me on the head and say...


Instrumental: B   A7/G   B   C#m


 G           A   B
"No! No! No! No! No!"


              B           C#m       G#m                 
I've seen the ghost of my anathema upon my bed
B                C#m              B/D#       (G) 
I need a body to knock me on the head and say
            (B)     
"No! No! No! No!"

Thanks :D
Louis
