BOYS IN THE BAND - THE LIBERTINES transcribed my Matt Smart

when you're playing this its best to use barre chords, its a lot easier. Also listen out 
the strumming pattern, because it changes quite a bit during the song.

chords used : D# (x68886)
              F  (133211) or (x8,10,10,10,8)
              C  (8,10,10,9,8,8)or (x35553)
              Am (577555)
              D  (x57775)
              C# (x46664)
              A# (688766) or (x13331)


Intro - D#

Verse

N.C                                     F
You're walking like you never seen the light
You're walking like it every night

         D#
But I've never seen you dance
         C
and I've never heard you sing
   Am                D  C#  C     C  (Fast Strumming)
So how can it mean a single thing
N.C                     Riff 2
It's all so rudimentary

F

N.C                                   F
You're talking like your handy in a fight
You talk about it every night
         D#
But I've never seen your flowers,
       C
in the barrel of a gun
Am            D        C#    C     C (fast strumming)
All I've ever seen you do is run
N.C                     Riff 2
It's all so rudimentary

Bridge

            F    Am
but tell me baby how does it feel
  D                             A#        Am
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

Chorus

F                     Am
And they all get them out for (they all get them out)
A#                   C
The boys in the band (only for the boys in the band)
F                   Am
They twist and they shout for (twist and scream and shout)
A#                       C                         F
For the boys in the band (only for the boys in the band)


Verse

N.C                                    F
You're walking like you never seen the light
You're walking like it every night
    D#
But then I stop to think
      C
And i ask my self why
     Am                       D       C#       C     
(fast strumming)
It's one of those things that darling you must try
N.C                    Riff 2
It's all so rudimentary


Bridge
        F             Am
Now I'm jealous, I'm jealous of my own
     D                              A#            A
I've no homestead but through these hearts I will roam, yeah


Chorus
F                             Am
And they all get them out for (they all get them out)
A#                       C
For The boys in the band (only for the boys in the band)
F                             Am
Yes they all roll them out for (twist and scream and shout)
A#                       C                         F
For The boys in the band (Only for the boys in the band)


Solo : For the first part alternate between F on the 1st fret and F on the 8th. The 
part, just fool around with F on the 13th fret. The last part is just a fast strum of C and 
the first part of riff 1.


Bridge
             F    Am
Well tell me baby how does it feel
  D                             A#        A
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel


F                            Am
And they all get them out for(they all get them out)
A#                   C
The boys in the band(only for the boys in the band)
F                             Am
They scream and they shout for(twist and scream and shout)
A#                      C
For the boys in the band(only for the boys in the band)


repeat the last chorus twice, then end with on F on the 8th fret.

 and thats it, hope its some help to you all!
