These are the fills/lead parts for "I Want The One I Can't Have", from
The Smiths' second album, "Meat Is Murder".
The rhythm is essentially just the chords, which I've included at the bottom.
I just copied and pasted them from abbo1uk's chords, they're exactly the same. Tab 
relative to capo, not nut.
Guitar by Johnny Marr.

Tuning:
Capo 2nd fret or tuned up to f#.

Catches up with your biology

           Am                 Bm
And if you ever need self-validation
     C                           D
Just meet me in the alley by the railway station
Am       Bm      C   D
It's all over my face
