This is 'Boys In The Band.' I got a first release CD on which it was called 'Breck Rd. 
In The Band.' They are the same... anyway enjoy. It's my first and only tab, and it works 
me but it's only an interperatation so don't get hissy.

The lyrics aren't my own either. They are also only here as a guide so if you want 
lyrics look elsewhere.

INTRO - GUITAR 2

Starts with a strum of F (1, 3, 3, 2, 1, 1) before guitar 1 comes in and then just 
the 3rd and
8th guitar 1 bars (listen to the track)

When guitar 1 starts the 9-11-12-11-9 bit guitar 2 plays F hitting the E, B and G 
occasionally
but mainly only hitting G, D, A and e.

Guitar 1 and 2 play together for 2 bars and then the lyrics come in when guitar 2 stops 
(and
sings) andguitar 2 carries on. Guitar 2 comes in again after the first line and carries 
with the
chords as shown below:

--------

VERSE 1:
                                                 F
You're walking like you've never seen the light


You're walking like it every night

A#m                                     C
But I've never seen you dance and I've never heard you sing

Am                   Dm C#m   C       C (strum lots)   F           RIFF e|---2--------7-------|
So how can it mean a single thing?                                      B|-----3--------8-----|
                                                                        G|-------4/-------9---|
It's all so rudimentary   (RIFF)                                        D|--------------------|
                                                                        A|--------------------|
--------                                                                E|--------------------|

BRIDGE: (9-11-12-11-9 bit on guitar 1 and F strums on guitar 2) for 2 bars

--------

VERSE 2:

You're talking like you're handy in the fight

You talk about it every night

But I've never seen those flowers in the barrel of your gun

All I've ever seen you do is run...

Not a rude boy you're the gentry  (RIFF)

--------

CHORUS:

            F      Am
So tell me baby, how does it feel?

Dm                               F
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

F                      Am                         A#
And they all get them out for (they all get them out)

                           C
For the boys in the band (only for the boys in the band)

F                      Am                                    A#
They scream and they shout for (twist and they scream and shout)

                          C
For the boys in the band, the boys in the band...

-------

BRIDGE: (9-11-12-11-9 bit on guitar 1 and F strums on guitar 2) for 2 bars

-------


                                                 F
You're walking like you've never seen the light


You're walking like it every night

A#m                              C
But then I stop to thinks and I ask myself why?

Am                             Dm       C#m     C    
  C (strum lots)   F
It's one of those things that darling you must try

It's all so rudimentary   (RIFF)

--------

CHORUS:

            F      Am
So tell me baby, how does it feel?

Dm                               F
I know you like the roll of the limousine wheel

F                      Am                         A#
And they all get them out for (they all get them out)

                           C
For the boys in the band (only for the boys in the band)

F                      Am                                    A#
They scream and they shout for (twist and they scream and shout)

                          C
For the boys in the band, the boys in the band...
