Subject: e/eels/last_stop_this_town.tab

From the CD: Last stop this town (single) electroshock blues (album)
Tuning: EADGBe

Notes: I just bought the single today (it's got a great version of "novocaine
for the soul" on it) and i thought i might as well tab it. (I also bought the
manics new album, and what a f--king waste of ?13 that was!)
Key to tab:
x=mute string.

Riff 1: (the toy piano during the verse)
This riff is pretty much repeated through the whole song (listen to the song
to hear where it is and is not played)

Chords: (during, what you would probably call, the chorus)
    E       B       A       B
These chords are played at the bit with the wierd voice singing "hey, ya, ye ye
he, ya, ye ye" (the record scratching)

muted chord riff:
                    B A                 A
This riff is played several times, after the synchro break.

O.K. here's the song lyrics: (and also a guide to where the riffs go, in brakets)

(riff 1 x3)
(riff 1 repeated from here....)
Your dead but the world keeps spinning,
take a spin through the world you've lived,
it's getting dark a little to early,
are you missing the dearly ?? raft.

Take a flight and you could be here tommorow,
take a flight well you could get here tonight,
I,m gonna fly on down for the last stop in this town,
what, i'm gonna fly on down and fly away,
well alright.
(....to here)

(chords played x4)
hey ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
taking a spin through the neighbourhood,
the neighbours scream what ya talking about,
'cause i don't know how to let you in,
and i can't let you out.

(other bits that i can't be bothered to tab)
What if i was not your only friend in this world,
can you take me where you're going,
if you're never coming back.

I,m gonna fly on down for the last stop in this town,
i'm gonna fly on down and fly away on my way,

(muted chord riff x6)
hey ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
(riff 1 repeated to the chords)
ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
When we take a ride away up high through the neighbourhood,
all built of the billboards and the factorys and smoke,
I,m gonna fly on down for the last stop in this town,
yeah, i'm gonna fly on down and fly away on my way.

fly away.

(chords played x2 and riff 1 x2)
hey ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
ha ye ye hey ha ye ya,
