PORT OF SOULS – Gun Club
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From the album ‘Mother Juno’
Tabbed by: Jay Rangdale
Email: jayrangdale@hotmail.co.uk

Tuning: Standard

Port of Souls is one of my favourite ‘late era’ Gun Club songs. It’s pretty 
straightforward too! It’s easiest to play all the rhythm guitar using a standard e-
major shape barre-chord. 
I’ve lifted the lyrics from Jeffrey-Lee’s autobiography ‘Go Tell the Mountain’.


Intro:

e|-0-0-0--0-0--0-0--------------------------------------------------------|
B|-0--0----0----0---------------------------------------------------------|
G|-1-----------------X2---------------------------------------------------|
D|-2----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-2----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0----------------------------------------------------------------------|

A           E    G                   E
  Run Molly run,   your hills are on fire

A               E           G                  E
  Why don’t you go downtown, and get it on the wire?

Bridge: BB, F#F#, G#G#

A      E           G                 E
  Now, easy street, can sure get you laid

A                E                G            E
  Doesn’t matter what you’ve done, and you get paid

EE, EE             E B C# 
    In the Port of Souls

A              E B C#C# B AAA
In the Port of Souls

Lead break over chorus:

Rhythm gtr: E E E             A A A             E E E               C# A E
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------7—----------------7-----------------7—--------------------------|
D|----7-9---------------7-9---7-7-7-------7-9---------------7----------7--|
A|7-9-------7-7-7---7-9---------------7-9-------7-7-7---7-9---9-7-6------7|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------9----|







      B C#A E B A
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------7---9-7---------------------------------------------------------|
A|7-7-6-----7-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------9-----------------------------------------------------------------|

The above fits over these lines:

             EEE           AAA
Too much ocean, too much sea

             EEE                 C# A E
It is no wonder that you buried me

               B C# A E B A (Hold ‘A’ into next verse)
But its alright

A             E  G               E 
 Rose Connally   don’t go in the field

A                         E          G                   E
 You might find something underneath, underneath what is real

Bridge:  BB,  F#F#,  G#G#

A                                                E                G      E
 Now stop pulling an eyelash, only you that I have

A                   E     G                      E  
 And it makes me so tired, and this could be the end

Repeat chorus

There’s a bunch of feedback and stuff for half a verse, then…
Last half-verse:

A                    E     G                  E
 Now don’t call John Henry, just kiss him goodbye

A                 E     G           E
 It don’t matter anyway, so simply goodbye

Repeat chorus

Second part of chorus repeats several times with different lyrics:

1
I didn’t get lonely dear, 
I didn’t have a chance to see, but its alright

2
You don’t have to say goodbye
No! no
But its alright

And different lead breaks:



Rhythm gtr:    E E E                A A A                 E E E

b = bend

Last time round he’s just throttling the life out of the b string on the 16th fret 
with lots of bend!

There we are then! Enjoy!
Cheers
Jay
