Hello fellow Ultimate Guitarists!

My first guitar tab / chords - woo hoo! I don't think I have got one of the chords quite 
(which I have named G* - 302010), but it sounds close enough.

If you are struggling to get the timing right, each chord letter equals 4 counts (so "C 
means C is played for 8 counts). The words are written out with each line representing 
breath (roughly).

Have a go and see what you think....
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Capo required on the FIRST fret (then you can sing along with the track).

C      X32010
C/B    X20010
Am     002210
G      320003
F      133211
G*     302010
E      022100

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---Intro---------------------------------------------------------------------|

C C

---Verse One---

    C            C/B                   Am
The day that we, took out a car in the rain
       G                     C
Is the day you forgot how to brake
             C/B                      Am
And see, how quickly the picture will change
             G                     F
Filled with fingers and voices and teeth
           G                 Am
I still remember holding my hand
             G*                      F
Against your face just before it was splayed
           G             C
Across the radio, as it played

C

---Verse Two---

    C              C/B                  Am
And you and me are still as the scenery moves
    G
Oh, why should it stop, just ‘cause
C                 C/B                        Am
Suddenly, there’s one where there used to be two,
    G                      F
And everything’s quiet but then
               G                         Am
Looks like the speaker lived through the blow
              G*                   F
Still playing some compilation you made
              G                 Am
Feels like a lifetime sitting alone
            G*                  F
So I start humming along to the tape

---Chorus---

          G                      C
I always liked this singer, I remember
                 E                        F
How you were the one who told me that her name
           G          C
Was either Mia or M.I.A.

C

---Bridge---

         F        F
And I am thinking,
          C
How many hours ‘til I’m home?
    C                      F
How long do I stay in this place?
      F                     C
Who’s going to wash all the blood from my clothes?
C                     F
Who’s gonna cancel my date?
F                     G     G
Who’s gonna cancel my date?
               F
And I think....

---Chorus---

         G                      C
I always liked this singer, I remember
                 E                        F
How you were the one who told me that her name
           G     G
Was either Mia...
             F
Oh I think...

---Chorus---

         G                      C
I always liked this singer, I remember
                 E                        F
How you were the one who told me that her name
           G           C
Was either Mia, or M.I.A.

C

---Verse Three---

    C           C/B                   Am
The day that we took out a car in the rain
   G                         C
I thought to myself that the sky was blue
   C/B                  Am
As I’d ever seen it but yet
      G
Still tainted with red.....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think it sounds particularly good if you choose a finger-picking pattern rather than 
through the whole song.

I hope you all enjoy singing about car crashes as much as I do!

For those wondering the chord marked as "G*" is in fact named Am7/G. Not certain if that's the actual chord in the song or not, but that's the name of the chord given.
