From: "Matthew Ginn" 
Date: Sat, 27 Sep 1997 16:54:11 +0000
Subject: TAB:   2 to 1  by elastica

2:1
elastica
(from the "elastica" album, also on "Trainspotting" soundtrack)

tabbed here by Matthew Ginn (mginn@manitouwadge.lakeheadu.ca)
1997 09 24

This song uses mostly power chords. I haven't tried to note
the strumming rhythms, because they're pretty variable, and mostly
unimportant--just listen to the record--it's straight forward enough.
(This song is played with two guitars, but I've tabbed the main parts
for one. Some day, I'll tab out the other parts.)

As for the lyrics: these are the best I could make them out. I didn't
try to correlate the background vocals with the main lyrics in verse
2, just try to fit them in as you see fit. As usual, corrections are
welcome.

Chords used:

C#: x466xx
A:  577xxx
B:  799xxx
G#: 466xxx

standard tuning

INTRO:

Percussion, then bass (G# & C#'s) then:

C#   A   B   G#      G#


VERSE 1:

C#
Keeping a brave face

                      A
in circumstances is impossible,


cannot describe

         B
so many ... decisions,

       G#                     C#
it's impossible to know which is


the proper order,

                 A
the best position to be ... in,

     B
take advantage, or so it seems

C#                            |
So it goes, at two to one,    | (So just
                              |
A                             |
in the dark, dark my friend,  |  get down on the other side.
                              |
          B                   |
strangers in my bed,          |  Too easy, for nobody to know.
                              |  [too busy to notice me? at all?] |
turn my head,                 |  You're soaking wet,
                              |
G#                            |
again.                        |  you talk too much,
                              |  it's not necessary.)

C#                            |
So he goes,                   | (Look for the eyes and mouth
                              |
                              |
two in two,                   |  I just want to say
                              |
A                             |
looks content,                |  "This kid is yours,
                              |
                              |
feels the mood, and then      |  your eyes and mouth."
                              |
B                             |
fumbling 'round,              |  Somewhere
                              |
                              |
tumbling down                 |  I draw the line

G#                            |
again.                        |  like a gossip
