Band: The Drones
Song: Shark Fin Blues
Album: Wait Long by the River and the Bodies of Your Enemies Will Float by
Tabber: Andrew Biles

At the bottom of the page I have written out an idea of what the rhythm
guitar does during this song.  The timing and voicings in the tab are not 
perfect so you will have to experiment a bit, but it's a decent basis.

The intro appears to be based around the chords I've tabbed out but, again,
you'll probably need to try a few hammer-ons and occasionally adjust your 
finger positions.
The outro is also picked around the chords provided.

Be sure to have a good distortion pedal at the ready and your whammy bar
attached.  It does sound great on acoustic too, though.


Standard tuning: E, A, D, G, B, e

 G                                      A                
Standing on the deck I watch my shadow stretch
     F                          G      
the sun pours my shadow upon the deck
     G                             A       
the waters licking round my ankles now
      F                           G   
there ain't no sun shine way way down

           G                                 A  
I see the sharks in the water like slicks of ink
             F                             G    
well, there's one there bigger than a submarine
       G                    A         
as he circles I look in his eyes
            F                              G     
I see Jonah in his belly by the camp fire light

         G                           A    
see the albatross up in the windy lofts
            F                                   G      
he gets to beating his wings while he sleeps it off
                   G                         A    
I hear the jettisoned cries from his dream unkind
        F                              G    
get to whippin' my ears like a riding crop

          G                              A    
Well, the captain once as able as a fink daddy
          F                                     G     
he's now laid up in the gallery like a dried out mink
             G                             A        
He's laying dying of thirst and he says or I think
       F                         G     
we're gonna be alone from here on in

         A                  
well you are all my brothers
                  G     
and you have been kind
         A                     G      
but what were you expecting to find?
         A                         
now your eyes turn inwards
              Em       
countenance turns blank
           F                               
and I'm floating away on a barrel of pain
                                           A5     
it looks like nothing but the sea and sky remain


=break= (G, A7, F, G x 4)

 G                                       A      
nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
 F                                      G        
nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah (x4)


    G                          A    
A harpoon's shaft is short and wide
    F                          G    
a grappling hook's cracked and dry
          G                           A   
I said, why don't you get down in the sea
 F                                 G       
turn the water red like you want to be?

              G                                  A    
'Cause if I cry another tear I'll be turned to dust
    F                                        G     
the sharks won't get me but they don't feel loss
          G                                    A      
keep one eye on the horizon man, you best not blink
                F                              G      
they're coming fin by fin until the whole boat sinks
G       A
fin by fin
F       G
fin by fin
G       A
fin by fin
F             G
fin by fin by fin by fin
