===== The Kooks - Sofa Song Acoustic =====

Acoustic version of this song is a little bit like the original but there are quite a 
major changes with the chords, and ive included the acoustic solo and bridge which Hugh 
on lead.

Important note: Playing the G#7sus4 chord, on the third strum you need to bend the 7th 
on the 'E' string and release, you will see what i mean if you watch the video, it is 
like this practically all the way through.

video can be found here at:

G#7sus4       Bmaj7
     The city freezes for
E(v2)                 Bmaj7       D#m
     I just realised I don't like you
G#7sus4     Bmaj7
     Me and my girl
E(v2)          Bmaj7        D#m
     Are going out for some air
G#7sus4        Bmaj7
     And I will do my best
E(v2)            Bmaj7      D#m
     Just to get under her dress
G#7sus4            Bmaj7
     And catch you out if I can
E                 Bmaj7      D#m
     On the other side of my sofa



G#7sus4       Bmaj7                    F#   C#7
                    Won't you come on over

                    At the side of my sofa
G#7sus4       Bmaj7                       F#   C#7
                    Oh won't you come on over


[Solo] (i know this is not 100% correct, i improvised on some bits)



[2nd Verse]

G#7sus4       Bmaj7
     The city heated up
E(v2)              Bmaj7         D#m
     It got blurry cause I'd had enough
G#7sus4      Bmaj7
     And he tried to take your soul
E                           Bmaj7        D#m
     But didn't realise you keep it in a different hole


[2nd Chorus]

G#7sus4       Bmaj7                    E
                    Won't you come on over
                           Bmaj7      D#m
                    At the side of my sofa
G#7sus4       Bmaj7                       E    Bmaj7 D#m
                    Oh won't you come on over


[Bridge:] (played raggae style until 'E' chord)
G#m7   G#m              D#m(v2)
        So here he comes,  a man with a

        loaded gun, I don't know if he
G#m                   F#(v2)
        Wants my soul or my cash flow
       G#m     G#m7   G#m   G#m7
        So here he comes, a man with a
        A loaded gun I don't know if he
       G#m     G#m7      D#m(v2)      E     A
        Wants my girl's heart or her pearls


                      G#7sus4  E
I s'pose I don't know
                      G#7sus4  E
I s'pose I don't know
                      G#7sus4  E
I s'pose I don't know
                 C#m     F#
I s'pose I don't knoooooow
I s'pose I don't know

yeh craigy your right i think what crazy yaz has forgot to mention is that luke plays it tuned a step down but with a capo on second. These chords are right though.
