Here's a song I tabbed I thought you might want to add to the archive.

-Ken.


"Shelter" by The Alarm

There are actually two guitars, one playing the chords, another playing the
lead riffs.

I believe the song is written in the key of A, if this helps.

Chords:
B5	x2440x
A	x02220
D	x00232
E	022100

For each riff, I just use the strings it uses to save a little space.

Riff 1:
E|---2---0------------------------|
B|-0---0----0-3--0-2--0-0-0----0--|
G|--------------------------2-2---|

Riff 2:
E|-4-2-0-5--2-0---4-|
B|--------------3---|

Riff 3:
E|-4-5-7-7-5-7-7-4-5-


(Lyrics may not be exactly right, I'm writing from memory)

Intro: B5, play Riff 1, pause, play again (second time is actually slightly
	different)

B5 (Riff 1 twice, no pause)
Shelter

B5		       A		             E
I've been branded, I've been washed around left for dead,
	  D	    A	     B5		D A

	  D	   A       B5	D A
Ain't got no place left to run

D(Riff 2)A         B5		    (Riff 1)
No  one  loves me, anymore, anymore, anymore
D(Riff 2)A	    E
Another  heartbeat, down...come on and take me to the

B5	     A			 E	     (Riff 3)
Shelter, Shelter, give me what I want tonight

(play Riff 1 twice)

B5			     A			E	  D       A      B5
I've been exiled, I've been (raised within the street ?), in this wicked world
D A 	B5		 A	     E      D         A     B5	  D A
	Persecution, I'm carrying my cross, down here on my knees

D(Riff 2)A         B5		    (Riff 1)
No  one  loves me, anymore, anymore, anymore
D(Riff 2)A	    E
Another  heartbeat, down...come on and take me to the
