C#m                   B
As Antony said to Cleopatra,
E                     
As he opened a crate of ale.

NOTES:
1.  Although denoted as C#m, this can be best played as C#m - C#m11 - C#m, where C#m11 is X44454.  
Additionally, you may find dropping the 6th string in the chords creates a sharper and more brittle tone, 
better suited to the song.
2.  Note, Johnny Marr’s advice re playing the lead on ’Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others’ at 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opWlkKBJQrw.
3.  Also, this a good walk-through at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov7aGJ7H5nw.  Also, there are 
many Lead TAB’s re SGABTO on UG, but very little chord TAB’s.  
‘Hope that you find my interpretation, enjoyable? :-R
