                             Written Invitation - The Whigs
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: adslam3

NOTE: Strumming is not going to be exact.  Listen for the changes.

Tuning: Standard
To get the chords, use your thumb on the big E string.
I play the song with the A open, but it could be muted if you wanted to.

WRITTEN INVITATION - a rough layout

(A - A7 - D - Dm)
Freeze me with your smile and say my name.
And I'm already gone.

(D - Bm - D - Bm)
If you're on the 118, I'll find you on the 118.

(A - A7 - D - Dm)
And if you want, I'll talk.
And break my head. The spotlight stares in off.

(D - Bm - Bm)
If you're on the 118, I'll find you on the 118.

(A - Dsus2/B - Dsus2/A - D - A - Dsus2/B - Dsus2/A - D)
I swear I care what you wear.
All your thoughts rolled up and down your sleeves.
And I need to see a written invitation please.
(A - E)

(A - A7 - D - Dm)
So if you are my fire, then yell my name.
And up, I'm ready on.

(D - Bm - D Bm)
If you're on the 118, I'll find you on the 118.

(A - Dsus2/B - Dsus2/A - D - A - Dsus2/B - Dsus2/A - D)
I swear I care what you wear.
All your thoughts rolled up and down your sleeves.
And I need to see a written invitation please.
Yeah I need to see a written invitation please.
Yeah I need to see a written invitation
(A - E)
