Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: The Smith Street Band
Title: Surrey Dive
Album: Throw Me in the River
Year: 2014
Tuning: Standard, no capo

This song is much easier to play with Capo 1 but I personally prefer to play the barre chords in this tab
without a capo as I think it sounds better on acoustic guitar. Beginners who want to play it on capo 1 and don't
know how convert the chords can use the key below to change the chords throughout the song.

D# = D
Cm = Bm
A# = A
G# = G
Gm = F#m
Fm = Em

Play either the chords or the tab below wherever it says riff throughout the song
Riff:

  D#                              Cm              A#

Riff x2

Verse 1:
D#                    Cm       A#
I'm just trying to pay an insurmountable debt
D#                         Cm    A#
Just trying to forget about my inevitable death
D#                          Cm         A#
Chris threw up in the diner, and I was sick in the snow

Riff x1

D#                             Cm            A#
Got a self-destructive instinct constructive summer complex
D#                                  Cm               A#
In the shadows of urban development I'll mark my footprints in wet cement
D#                Cm               A#
Like the first man on some kind of temporary moon

Riff x1

Chorus:
     G#  D#  A#              D#
But I--------- had to get out
G#            D#       A#    D#
Before I dove in Surrey Dive
     G#  D#  A#              D#

D#                                 Cm               A#
She said we might have met somewhere but that's all news to me now
D#                               Cm          A#
And hey look I achieved something, can we go back to bed?

Riff x1

Bridge:
Cm                          Gm
We used to be proud of each other
Cm                           Gm
We used to take care of each other
        Cm                                 Gm                             
I wanna make something without foundations built on bullshit and whatever
Fm                   Gm
The loudest person says
Fm                       Gm
Cause it's never really right
Cm                                      Gm
But the beating and the puffing up of chests
Cm                                    Gm
Has beaten every argument I've had tonight
               Fm                              Gm
Come on just punch me in the face so then at least you'll think you're right
      Fm                               Gm              
Maybe you'll leave this place, lose the war and win the fight and I'm
Fm                                                                Gm
Running scared, I'm running scared, I'm running scared, I'm running scared
                             Fm                                                      Gm
from the house that I helped build, I'm running scared, I'm running scared, I'm running scared

Chorus:
     G#  D#  A#                  D#
So why--------- don't you fuck off
G#                D#        A#   D#
Stop bringing hate into our lives
G#                    D#       A#                 D#
Cause all we ever really wanted was to feel at home
G#                D#   Cm      A#  
Was to feel at home tonight woooah
  D#             Cm             A#
Woooooooooooooooooooooooah  woooooah
  D#             Cm             A#
Woooooooooooooooooooooooah
