Fionn Regan - Put A Penny In The Slot

Tabbed by Wil-man-101 at Ultimate-Guitar, with credit to user soxmartini

Capo 1

Chord voicings:
G*  X2001X (sorta Gsus4)
C*  X3001X (sorta Csus2)

Parentheses indicate an optional chord, e.g. (G*)
Dashes in words indicate the syllable where the chord sits.

The chorus has a walk-up, which I have tried to incorporate into the chords, but the actual notes are 
something like this:
   Am  G*  C   C*  C   C   F   F
e|---------------------------------|
B|---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1-|
G|---2---0---0---0---0---0-2-2-0-0-|
D|-------------0---2---3-----------|
A|-0---2---3-----------------------|
E|---------------------------------|


[Verse]
    C
I a-pologise
    F            C
(I) seem to have arrived
          F           E             Am
Home with items in my bag from your house
        C
There's cutlery
        F                 C
A table-cloth, some Henne-ssy
      F             E        Am
And a book on Presi-dents de-ceased
               C
I'll have them Fedexed to you
         F                C
It was a strange thing to do
  F           E                Am      
I hope we can still be friends
       C
Ah, it was not me
            F         C
But someone else, you see
F            E        Am
Twisting the steering reins


[Chorus]
Am          (G*)   C        (C*)
Put a penny in the slot and make an
C          F     C
artificial light shine
F        Em
Leave go-o
   F      C
My golden arm


[Verse]
  C
I don't give advice
       F              C
But be wise and think twice
       F          E           Am
Before getting in-volved in a game
          C
Where the minority
         F      C
Face the majori-ty
        F            E            Am
Who are faceless and born without names
       C
Was it knock synch when
           F           C
Wse came a-cross three men
         F              E               Am
They had church candles wrapped in news-paper
  C
I bought two from them
      F           C
And I lit one for you
           F                 E            Am
I hope the message made it's way down the wire


[Chorus]
Am          (G*)   C        (C*)
Put a penny in the slot and make an
C          F     C
artificial light shine
F        Em
Leave go-o
   F      C
My golden arm


[Verse]
    C
The soul of a dog
       F            C
He's a-live and not gone
       F             E           Am
to the farm like the others said
      C
A Rho-desian ridgeback
        F            C
Off the beaten track
     F         E                Am
In a furniture shop down on the quays
        C
For the loneliness you foster,
      F         C
I sug-gest Paul Oster:
  F            E         Am
A book called "Timbuktu"


[Chorus]
Am          (G*)   C        (C*)
Put a penny in the slot and watch the
C       F          C
Drunken sailor boy dance


[Bridge]
[The F's bass note alternates between F and E on every beat.]
    F
She will not let you be
    C  G
Her lo-ver
    F
She goes out looking for
    C  G
The ta-xi
    F
Her phone is ringing straight to
        C    G
Message-mind-er
     F
Send out a battalion
   C    G
To find her


[Chorus]
Am          (G*)   C        (C*)
Put a penny in the slot and count the
C               F    C
Swans through a tele-scope
  F               Em 
I can't help from crying
  F             C
I wish you were mine


[Verse]
     C
When I was seventeen
  F           C
I followed my dream
   F      E        Am
Up into a highrise block
        C 
The "Ad-ventures of Augie March"
   F           C
By Saul Bellow
    F     E               Am
Was all I had for company
   C
At night time I'd lie
   F          C
In Beckingham Pike
     F     E          Am
With tears like flash-bulbs
       C
And re-call my treasure-
F         C
Searching days
       F          E    Am
In the rock pools as a kid


[Verse]
C      
To the remains of
    F             C
The cherub plains
     F               E              Am
Or a-round the bonfi-re in Nailors' Cove
     C
Good company and grief
    F           C
Sit like a dock leaf
F             E             Am   
Sits beside a stinging nett-le


[Chorus]
Am          (G*)   C        (C*)
Put a penny in the slot and make an
C          F     C
artificial light shine
F        Em
Leave go-o
   F      C
My golden arm
