Cemetery Gates by The Smiths

Tabbed by busrday

Intro:
F   C
F   C
F   C
F   C   C

C
A dreaded sunny day
                                F
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
            C           Am       C   F
Keats and Yeats are on your side
C
A dreaded sunny day
                                F
So I meet you at the cemetery gates
            C           Am       C   F
Keats and Yeats are on your side
        C          C
While Wilde is on mine

C                                         F
So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
                             C
All those people all those lives
              Am C F
Where are they now?
       C
With loves, with hates
                        F
And passions just like mine

They were born
                C
And then they lived
             Am C F
And then they died

Which seems so unfair
C              C
And I want to cry

               Em
You say: "ere thrice the sun hath door
                   C
Salutation to the dawn"
         Em                        C
And you claim these words as your own
     F                   C
But I'm well read, have heard them said
           Am                       F
A hundred times (maybe less, maybe more)

        C
If you must write prose and poems
                                  F
The words you use should be your own
                     C      Am C F
Don't plagiarise or take "on loan"
                  C
There's always someone, somwhere
                       F
With a big nose, who knows
                           C
And who trips you up and laughs
        Am C F
When you fall
                         C
Who'll trip you up and laugh
          C
When you fall

               Em                C
You say: "ere long done do does did"
 Em                             C
Words which could only be your own
     F
You then produce the text
       C
From whence was ripped
             Am     F
(some dizzy whore, 1804)

            C
A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're happy
                                F
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
            C           Am       C   F
Keats and Yeats are on your side
            C
A dreaded sunny day

So let's go where we're wanted
                                 F
And I meet you at the cemetery gates
            C           Am       C   F
Keats and Yeats are on your side - but you lose
        C          C
While Wilde is on mine

(Then it ends the same as intro)
