Song: Autumn almanac  (Live acoustic version)
Artist: Ray Davies / The Kinks
Composer: Ray Davies

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD') for ultimateGuitar.com
29th Sept 2016

N.B.
If you want to play this song in the original
Kinks key of Bm, use a capo at the 2nd fret,
or for my more comprehensive tab see this link:
tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/t/the_kinks/autumn_almanac_ver2_crd.htm

This is a simplified version of my original tab,
without the addition of any bass notes.
Based on one of Ray's later live performances,
where he performs it a whole tone lower than the
original track.

[Verse 1]
         Am                          D
From the dew soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar,
G             D
    When the dawn begins to crack,
  C   D   G   D7      G            D
It's all part of my autumn alma - nac,
     Am                       D
The breeze blows leaves of a musty coloured yellow,
G             D
   So---- I sweep them in m' sack,
 C    D    G    D7       G           D
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn alma - nac!


[Verse 2]
   E                A  B                 E
Friday evening peo-------ple  get to - gether,
    A  B                  E
Hi--------ding from the weather,
C#m       Caug                    E
Tea and toasted buttered currant buns,
          F#                  A
Can't compensate for lack of sun,
              G#7
Because the summer's all gone!


[Verse 3]
            Am
La, la-la!  La, la, la, la-la!
D
La -la, la, la, la-la!
G               D
    Oh----, my poor rheumatic back,
 C    D    G   D7       G            D
Yes, yes, yes, its my autumn alma - nac,
Am                  D
La, la, la, la-la!  La-la, la, la, la-la!
G               D
    Oh----, my autumn almanac,
 C    D    G    D7       G            D     D7
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn alma - nac!


[Verse 4]
G            D      C        G
I like my football  ...on a Saturday,
  G             D       C    D7     G
Roast beef on Sundays,    ...al - right,
G           D      C            G
I go to Blackpool  ...for my holidays,
 G          D    C    D7     G
Sit in the open   ...sun - light!


[Verse 5]
 Gm               Bb                      Eb
This is my street,   and I'm never gonna leave it,
F             F7          Bb
    And I'm always gonna stay here,
Dm                   Fm      G
    If I live to be ninety -nine,
                 G7      C
'Cause all the people I meet...
Cm                           G
  ...Seem to come from my street,
E7                       A7
    And I can't get a - way,
B7                            Em    D#aug
    Because it's calling me, come on home,
                        Em7   C#m7-5
Hear it calling me, so come on home!


[Verse 6]
            Am
La, la-la!  La, la, la, la-la!
D
La -la, la, la, la-la!
G                  D
   Oh-------, my autumn Armagnac,
 C    D    G    D7       G            D
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn alma - nac,
Am                      D
La, la, la, la, la-la!  La-la, la, la, la-la!
G                    D
    Woh-------, my autumn alma - nac,
 C    D    C    D7    G    D7   G    C
Yes, yes, yes, yes!  Yes, yes, yes, yes!
