                THE BOY WITH THE THORN IN HIS SIDE - The Smiths

The intro I tabbed out isn't completely accurate as to how many strums of each chord to
do, so just try it out and do whatever sounds good to yourself.

In the verse, I'll put a '*' next to the Am chords, which you play briefly for a strum
or two.

[Verse]

(as above)                    Am
The boy with the thorn in his side
           C      D
Behind the hatred there lies
G            Am*  D
A murderous desire
  Am       C   D
Foooor loooove

D             G        Am*  D
How can they look into my eyes
                       Am        C   D
And still they don't believe me
             G           Am*     D
How can they hear me say those words
                 Am         C  D
Still they don't believe me

                  G         Am*    D
And if they don't believe me now
          Am              C  D
Will they ever believe me?
                  G         Am*    D
And if they don't believe me now
          Am               C
Will they ever believe me?


(The intro is then played again and the above chords are repeated for the rest of the song)
