Tabbed By : WibbleWobble

Tuning: standard EADG

From the album "Ceremony" 1991;  bassist Charley Drayton

Written by Ian Astbury / Billy Duffy

Bit of an overlooked song this one;  I like the way the bass plays a reggae beat on what 
sounds like a standard rock song.  Anyway,  goes like this:

INTRO:
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---4~----------4~----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-6-----4-----6-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------4~----------------------------------------------------------------|

VERSE (black night baby,  etc) play this x 3
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-4---------------4---------------------------------------------------------|
A|---6-6-6-6---------6-6-6-6----4--------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------6----------------------------------------------|

PRE CHORUS (no time for trouble,  a time for joy etc)
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------6----------------------------------------------------------|
A|---4----6----4----6--------------------------------------------------------|
E|-6----4----6---------------------------------------------------------------|

CHORUS (falling down,  Bangkok rain....) play x 4
G|--------------------------------------8-----------4-6-4--------------------|
D|------------------------------------8----8-6-4~-6--------------------------|
A|-----------------4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-----------------------------------------|
E|-6-6-6-6-6-0-4-6-----------------------------------------------------------|

REPEAT AS VERSE x 3
REPEAT PRE CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS
then
SOLO - repeat x 4
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-4---------4---------4-----------------------------------------------------|
A|---6-6-6-6---6-6-6-6---6-6-6-6---4-----------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------6-------------------------------------------|

REPEAT PRE CHORUS
REPEAT CHORUS x 4
THEN PLAYOUT TO CODA (I'm a free spirit travelling man...)
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------4-6------------|
A|-----------4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-4~---------------4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6----------------|
E|-6-6-6-6-4--------------------4~--6-6-6-6-4--------------------------------|

Astbury goes off on one at the end but you can just freestyle it.  Have fun!
