The Alexandria Quartet - Montauk


This song is originally played by two electric guitars, however, since I mostly 
play acoustic and only have two hands, I decided to tab a campfire-friendly 
version for one half decent performer. Please enjoy, and post your own darn 
version if you disagree :) Yeah, and buy the album, it's pretty good!


Intro:          C          G/F#         C6      Am7               (x2)

        |-------2---2020---2---2020-----0-------00--0-------------|
        |-------3---3333---2---2222-----3-------3-3---3-----------|
        |-------2---2222---2---2222-----0-------0--0---0----------|
        |-------0----------0------------0-------2----2------------|
        |-------x----------x------------2-------2-----------------|
        |-------x----------x------------3-------0-----------------|

        (strummed and half picked, listen to the song for timing.) 


        C         G/F#    C6       Am7       
Verse:  Rain hits my head hard, It seems like this never will stop
        C  G/F#    C6        Am7
        I close my eyes, and I'm like a girl in a crib
        C  G/F#             C6         Am7
        Afraid of what might come, but too scared to miss it, I know
        C  G/F#             C6 
        I wouldn't miss you
                Am7
        for the world

Intro 2:        C          G/F#         C6      Am7

        |-------2---2020---2---2020-----0-------00--0-------------|
        |-------3---3333---2---2222-----3-------3-3---3-----------|
        |-------2---2222---2---2222-----0-------0--0---0----------|
        |-------0----------0------------0-------2----2------------|
        |-------x----------x------------2-------2-----------------|
        |-------x----------x------------3-------0-----------------|


            C      G/F#    C6      Am7
Verse:  But I'm so lonely, well, I guess I have myself to blame
        C       G/F#    C6         Am7
        Cause I led you north, and I can't stop thinking of you
        C     G/F#             C6           Am7
        You remind me of somebody else, someone you'd have seen in a film
        C     G/F#         C6
        And I wouldn't miss you

                D
Bridge: for the world
                                Am7
        So then I pick up my guitar
                                  D
        And describe you in a song
                             Am7        
        Like so many else did,
                                        D
        But not exactly the same way as I
                                       Am7
        Cause I describe your peculiar figure
                                   D
        And then I form a peculiar song
                                       Am7
        And by then you'll have made a difference


Chorus: C                      G/F#            
        Oh, let me take you to Montauk
        C                        D        Am
        Cause that's where we're meant to be
        Am7                         D  
        We'll hit the road when you come back
        C                 D
        And I'll walk you to the beach

Solo:   C       G/F#    C6      Am7
        D       Bbdim7  Am
        C       G/F#    C6      Am7
        D       Bbdim7  Am

        (chords only, play around with them for something more interesting, or 
call a friend with a Stratocaster)


        Am         D           Bbdim7  
Chorus: Oh, let me take you to Montauk
        Am                     D        Am
        Cause that's where I'm meant to be
        Am                          D
        We'll hit the road when you come back
        C                 D      Am7   
        And I'll take you to the beach
        Bbdim7                       C                  
        I know you'd like to see the beach


Outro:          C          G/F#         C6      Am7               (x2)

        |-------2---2020---2---2020-----0-------00--0-------------|
        |-------3---3333---2---2222-----3-------3-3---3-----------|
        |-------2---2222---2---2222-----0-------0--0---0----------|
        |-------0----------0------------0-------2----2------------|
        |-------x----------x------------2-------2-----------------|
        |-------x----------x------------3-------0-----------------|

        End on Am7, let ring on the last couple of notes.
