FOOL’S GOLD ~ MIDDLE EAST
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by Kate Prendergast
January 2012

Beautiful song, awesome Australian band; a shame the Middle East has disbanded so early 
in their music career.

This is my first tab, so go easy on me. The guitar here is very soft, so I had immense 
difficulty picking up the tabs for the chorus, so I resorted to some possible chord 
shapes instead. If anyone has a keener ear than me, please pull me up and put it right!

Standard tuning, capo 4
