                             LITTLE BLACK SUBMARINES - The Black Keys
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: McAvro
Email: crash3_3@hotmail.com

I transcribed the first verse and chorus exactly as I heard it,
so if you want to stay completely faithful to the album,
make sure to read carefully, as there are many slight changes 
throughout the verse and chorus.
The second verse and chorus have some more slight changes,
but I'll let you play around with them.

I am tabbing for a single acoustic guitar, so I can't help 
with the solos in the second half of the song.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Am          G
Little black submarines
D      A
Operator please
Am         G       A
Put me back on the line
Am           G
Told my girl I'd be back
D      A
Operator please
Am       G          A
This is wrecking my mind

Am         G
Oh, can it be
    D              A
The voices calling me
A - B - C         D      A  
They get lost and out of time
  Am                G
I should've seen it glow
    D         A
But everybody knows
       C      D        A
That a broken heart is blind
A - B - C     D        A
That a broken heart is blind


Pick you up, let you down
When I wanna go
To a place I can hide
You know me, I had plans
But they just disappeared
To the back of my mind

Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

Am-G-D-A
Am-G-A   x3

Treasure maps, fallen trees
Operator please
Call me back when it's time
Stolen friends and disease
Operator please
Pass me back to my mind

Oh, can it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind
That a broken heart is blind

Am-G-D-A
Am-G-A   x4

As I said at the start of the tab, I tabbed it for solo acoustic guitar. I don't have an electric as of yet, and like you said, he goes too fast for me to properly transcribe it by ear.

I want to post or [tab]
