Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
NOTE: There's a syncopated chord pattern used throughout the song, starting
with the intro. The second measure includes a slide up (from a B5 to a C#5 
if you play it Capo 2).

| C#5 E B5 F# | B5 / C#5 C#5 B5 C#5 E5 C#5 |
  1   2 3  4    1    &   2   &  3   &  4

In standard tab notation a forward slash means "slide up," but in standard
chord notation it's used to indicate a chord with an alternate bass note.
To make sure there's no confusion, I'll notate the slide with a forward arrow 
(>), like this:

| C#5 E B5 F# | B5 > C#5 C#5 B5 C#5 E5 C#5 |

Dogtown
(The Fratellis)

Capo: 2

||: C#5 E B5 F# | B5 > C#5 C#5 B5 C#5 E5 C#5 :||

          C#5       E       B5          F#
There's a snakeskin bedroom bang in the middle 
     B5 > C#5        C#5   B5      C#5     E5 C#5 
Of a fun——ny  little place called "Hell." (Oh well.)
C#5       E           B5             F#
Everybody there's got trouble by the dozen 
       B5 > C#5       C#5   B5 C#5   E5 C#5
It's a lone-ly little place to dwell .  .
G#
. Hope I don't make the trip through the floor 
    F#                               G#
You told me once, "I want it but you wanted it more"

||: C#5 E B5 F# | B5 > C#5 C#5 B5 C#5 E5 C#5 :||

C#5    E        B5       F#
I know kung fu, you know nothing 
      B5 > C#5         C#5  B5 C#5    E5   C#5
But toge——-ther we can make it real. (Good deal.)
C#5         E       B5           F#
Kicking our own way out of every prison 
     B5 > C#5        C#5  B5   C#5   E5 C#5
With my   brains and your high heels .  .
G#                                            G# G
. Love your myth coupled with your vast ocean .  .
F#                        G#                G# A
Take my eyes as the prize for your devotion .  . 

| Bb | Bb | Bb | Bb | Eb7 | Eb7 | Bb | Bb |

Bb
. Oh take me to El Rey I got this real need to pray

. Come find me where the vampires all keep their heads on display
Eb7
. I'm a new man living in a old skin

. I've been dead to you ever since Berlin
Bb                                                             B
. Oh teacher, I'm restless, just say the word and I'll be blameless
C
Make me a saint I'll be the voice of restraint
          B     Bb                                     A  G#
I'll take their bullwhips and stones without a hint of complaint

||: C#5 E B5 F# | B5 > C#5 C#5 B5 C#5 E5 C#5 :||

C#5   E      B5      F#
I met God in Dogtown isn't it 
  B5 > C#5         C#5  B5     C#5    E5    C#5
A fun—-ny thing to know you've died? (Doves cried.)
C#5    E            B5         F#
Angels wept just as if I was a brother 
    B5 > C#5       C#5 B5 C#5   E5 C#5
And sang the blues for my bride .  .

C#5               E         B5       F#
I've been keeping time in a skeleton soul band 
B5 >  C#5          C#5   B5   C#5     E5 C#5
Don't it make your heart just bleed? (In-deed.)
C#5        E           B5           F#
Keeping my nose clean, hoping I can crash land 
B5 > C#5            C#5    B5 C#5  E5 C#5
Back where I've got mouths to feed .  .
G#                                             G# G
. I'll be home once I've paid for my confusion .  . 
       F#                          G#              G# A Bb
You'll see me in the fires of your own disillusion .  . .

| Bb | Bb | Bb | Bb | Eb7 | Eb7 | Bb | Bb |

| Bb Bb | Bb Bb F G A | Bb Bb | Bb Bb F G A |
  1  3    1  3  & 4 & 

| Bb Bb | Bb Bb F G A | Bb Bb | Bb Bb | 



Charted by Dexex

I write chord charts to show how, as a rhythm guitarist, 
I play songs. I don't claim they are the "right" way. They're not 
intended to be taken as tabs which notate exactly how a song was played 
on a recording.
