                             NOWHERE FAST - The Smiths
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: emilym80
E-mail: emilym80@hotmail.com

Tuning: F# or capo on 2nd.
From the album "Meat is Murder".
Tab relative to capo, not nut.
There are 2 guitars on this track (I think) so I tried to combine
both parts as much as possible.
The tab can be pretty much followed as is but there are some parts that 
repeat or have variations.
*denotes a slow bend of the trem arm, if you have one.

I've only tabbed the chords but Johnny scuffs a lot between them,
so add that in if you want.

That ? chord is played w/ a open C shape, leaving the hi e and G strings open. But you could also play an F#m by barring the 7th fret:
e|-7-
B|-8-
G|-7-
D|-9-
A|---
E|---

Verse 3: Just play the Bm/F#m sequence higher up the fretboard (fret 5 and 7)
The ending:
Bm A Gmaj7
e|-0---00---0---
B|-1---33---1---
G|-2---44---2---
D|-2---55---3---
A|-0---00---3---
