CARNIVAL (PUCK VERSION)

by Persson/Svensson/Sveningson
Performed by the Cardigans
from "Hey get out off my way E.P."
Transcribed by Gerald Audenis (geralda@mech.kth.se)
With a little help from Edmond Hum (ehum@inforamp.net)


First, I definitely think that the Cardigans use a Capo on the second fret,
and that the key of "Carnival" is E.
Basically, if you play "Carnival" in E, you will use the following chords:

Chords
------

1) near the capo
   

As you can see, the first chord is a strange F#m maybe 7 or 9, I don't 
know, but it sounds exactly like in "Carnival".
The chords 4,5 and 6 are the bossa-style chords that are so hard to catch 
on "by my door, waiting for you".

G:-----2+------0------3------2------0------0------4------2------0-----         
D:-----2+------2------0------0------5------4------4------2------0-----

      the     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
     Capo!           are the chords you get without the capo


2) Since I don't have any capo, here are the chords I play

e:----------------------------------------4------7------5-----
B:-----9------9------7------7------7------5------7------5-----
G:-----9------9------9------6------6------6------8------6-----               
D:-----7------9------9------7------6------6------9------7-----                 
A:-----9------7------7------6------5------4------9------7-----                 
E:----------------------------------------4------7------5-----

      F#m*    E   Esus2*  D#dim Dmaj7*   C#m     B      A
   

My chords book says the Dmaj7* is a Dmaj7/#11...


HOW TO USE ALL THESE CHORDS
----------------------------

1st Part
--------

F#m*                E 
Carnival came by my town today
Esus2*             F#m* 
bright lights from giant wheels
            E
fall on the alleyways
Esus2*
and I'm here
D#dim
by my door
Dmaj7*     C#m
wating for you


2nd part
--------

F#m*   B  
I will never know
      E(sus2*?) A 
cause you will never show
F#m*        B
come on and love me now
E(sus2*?)   A
come on and love me now

F#m*   B
I will never know
      E(sus2*?) A
cause you will never show
F#m*        B
come on and love me now
E(sus2*?)   A
come on and love me now
Dmaj7*      Esus2*        F#m*  
come on and love me now


as 1st part
-----------

I hear sounds of lovers
barrel organs, mothers
I would like to take you
down there
just to make you mine
in a merry-go-round
