DELICATE CUTTERS - Throwing Muses

transcribed by  Andrew 

What follows is my attempt at "Delicate Cutters" by the Throwing Muses.  When
Kristin Hersh played this on her solo tour of New Zealand this was the song she
ended her performance with - utterly amazing!


              D (picked)
It's just the lack of time I keep
         G (picked)         A        (break1)
Reaching Out, lashing at

Break1:  D  *4
         A

      D part                A part
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
e--1-1-1-0---0-0---    -0--0--0-0--0--0---|
B--3-3-3-3---3-3---    -3--3--3-2--2--2---|
G--2-2-2-2---2-2---    -2--2--2-2--2--2---|
D--0-0-0-0---0-0---    -2--2--2-2--2--2---|
A------------------    -0--0--0-0--0--0---|
E------------------    -------------------|


A
It's just the lines run down the walls
          D                                      G         A
I can't believe they never fall, the walls never leave
A                      (break2)
And the walls begin to scream


Break2:  D   *4
         G   *4
         A

       D part              G part                A part
  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

A                                      D
And my toes against the wall, I stare ahead
                               G                      A
The door inside the wall, your face inside the door
                     D
You crawl across the room
                            G
The picture never moves, my boots are very still
                A F7:F7 ?You slide to my feet
                     (break2)
You slide across the floor

(D part *4)                   (G part *4)
I throw your head across the ice
(D part *4)                 (G part *4)
I throw my head through the window, crash
            (A part)
Like ???


A
It's four o'clock, I'm waiting
            D                             G
Your face appears, I keep forgetting your name
                  A
While I'm writing this, you
                      (break1)         G     A
You crash through the wall


(break3 - repeated for the remainder of the song)

Break3:  D   *4
         G   *4

       D part              G part
  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
e--1-1-1-0---0-0---    -1-1-1-0---0-0---|
B--3-3-3-3---3-3---    -3-3-3-3---3-3---|
G--2-2-2-2---2-2---    -0-0-0-0---0-0---|
D--0-0-0-0---0-0---    -0-0-0-0---0-0---|
A------------------    -----------------|
E------------------    -----------------|


(D part *4)      (G part *4)
You fall off the floor
(D part *4)                  (G part *4)
I slide your head across the ice
(D part *4)                 (G part *4)
I throw my head through the window, crash
(D part *4)                              (G part *4)
Like gods a room full of delicate cutters
            (D part *4)                  (G part *4)
All sitting down the room, as many doors
(D part *4)                    (G part *4)
All but one of them are closed
(D part *4)                  (G part *4)
She goes around, opening the doors
                 (D part *4)                        (G part *4)
This has another ending, full of innocent children
                       (D part *4)       (G part *4)
One of them are closed
         (D part *4)              (G part *4)
She goes around, this has another ending
(D part *4)                       (G part *4) F7tF7 ?Remember full of delicate cutters
(D part *4) (G end)
Opening the doors
