Vicar In A Tutu
	(Morrissey/Marr)

Basically this song (off of the luxurious Queen Is Dead album) is all simple
chords with that Johnny Marr touch.  The E chord during the verse, for
example, is played by stroking the high E string and then moving up with the
stroke.  It is not that difficult.  Here it is:

E
I was minding my business lifting some lead off
E
The roof of the Holy Name Church
E
It was worthwhile living a laughable life
E
Just to set my eyes on a blistering sight
                C#m
Of a vicar in a tutu

He~s not strange
        A                           B
He just wants to live his life this way

E
A scanty bit of a thing with a decorative ring
E
That wouldn~t cover the head of a child
E
As Rose collects the money in the cannister
E
Who comes sliding down the banister
               C#m
The vicar in a tutu

He~s not strange
        A                           B
He just wants to live his life this way

E
The monkish monsignor with a head full of plaster
E
Said, -my man, get your vile soul dry-cleaned-
E
As Rose counts the money in the cannister
E
As natural as rain he dances again
           C#m
Vicar in a tutu

Oh yeah
   A    B
Oh yeah...

E     E     E     E

           C#m
Vicar in a tutu

Oh yeah
   A      B
Oh yeah...

E
The next day in the pulpit with freedom and ease
E
Combating ignorance, dust and disease
E
As Rose counts the money in the cannister
E
As natural as raihe dances again and again and again
                    C#m
And the fabric of a tutu

Any man could get used to
    A             B
And I am a living sign

             C#m     A   B
I~m a living sign....
             C#m     A   B
I~m a living sign....


that is basically the song in it~s entirety...

-----so i broke into the palace
     with a sponge and a rusty spanner
     she said, "i know you, and you cannot sing"
     i said, "that's nothing you should hear me play piano"

Excellent tab!

The studio version cuts off, but it ends on an E in live versions

And if you really want to add some JM sparkle to it. Add and E7 when picking upwards with the E (on the B string) with your pinkie and when you go to the C#m add a slide up from the a B# bar chard an a pull off with you middle finger when you get to the C#m . Then when going to the A and B hammer on to make a add 9th with your pinkie (on the bottom E string).
