Song: Should've Stayed at Home Tonight
Band: Telegraph (formerly the Skolars)
Album: 10 Songs and More (1997)
Written by the Skolars
Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)

This is a great ska tune by the band formerly called The
Skolars.  They are still the same band, just with a different name.
Anyway, this is my version of the song, please e-mail me with any
corrections.

Intro: Drums, then this Bb riff:

E------1-------1-------1------|
B----3---3---3---3---3---3----|
G--3-------2-------0-------2--|
D-----------------------------|
A-----------------------------|      * Play this 4x
E-----------------------------|

Verse:
(Played with fast ska upstrokes)

     Bb    Eb    Bb    F
E---(6)---(6)---(6)---(8)---|
B----6-----8-----6-----10---|
G----7-----8-----7-----10---|
D----8-----8-----8-----10---|
A---------------------------|
E---------------------------|

Here's how the rythym goes from the start, pretty much
throughout the song:
Bb        Eb               Bb    F
Should've stayed at home tonight.  .  .  .  .

Bridge:
   Ab   G
E--4----3--|
B--4----3--|
G--5----4--|
D--6----5--|
A--6----5--|
E--4----3--|

Lyrics: (my version of them)
(chorus)
Should've stayed at home tonight. Every time I see that
guy, I know things just ain't right. Should've stayed at home tonight.
Every time I see that guy, I end up in a fight.
(bridge)
At the show, about a half past ten. He walks in, here we go again.
Another show another fight. Could've just stayed in back,
and kept myself out of sight. But the anger is a rush. So quick to throw
a fist, what the hell is wrong with us?
That's the gist of it, the end of things. One fight to prove it, one
fight to prove.
(verse)
That's when I saw him, in the middle of the crowd. He was kicking around,
dancing around, pushing around, fucking around, he knocked some fucker
down. What were we thinking, what's going through our heads? Instead of
open minds closed eyes closed heads instead.
Should've stayed at home tonight. Every time I see that guy, I know
things just ain't right. It's not about might but about sight. So hard to
place the blame, no-one is really right.
You know I thought, things were rough, we could relate, and this was enough.
Another show another fight. Could've just stayed in back, and kept myself
out of sight. But the anger is a rush. So quick to throw a fist, what the
hell is wrong with us?
That's the gist of it, the end of things. One fight to prove it, one
fight to prove.
That's when it happened, then he knocked him to the floor. Instead of
taking him out, ?? said they were gonna blindly even up the score. We let
loose a monster, where monster's not allowed. Instead of a family, we're
just a fuckin crowd.
(Horn solo)
Hey Hey  Should've stayed at home tonight(4x)   Yeah, ho!

There it is! If you don't have this CD, and you're a ska-core fan, I
suggest you run to your local record store now and pick it up. It will
surprise you. I hope you enjoy the tab.
