[Main Line]

Am    F  G/D   F       Am   F       Am   F  

Am    F            G/D  F           Am      F   Am    F
     Heifer whines ...    could be human cries 
Am    F   G/D  F      Am             F      Am   F
Closer,  comes   the screaming knife
F                                          D7
This beautiful creature must die ... this beautiful creature must die 
    F                        G                      Am
A death for no reason, and death for no reason is murder
         F                                    D7
And the flesh you so fancifully fry, is not succulent, tasty, or kind
      F          F/E          F/D                 F      Am         D/A
It's death for no reason, and death for no reason is murder
        F             F/E            F/D     F      Am        D/A
And the calf that you carve with a smile ... is murder
          F           F/E      F/D     F      Am     C
And the turkey you festively slice ... is murder
         B                      Am   F   G/D   F
  Do you know how animals die?  
Am     F     Am   F               F                   D7          
Kitchen aroma's ...  aren't very homely... It's not comforting, cheery, or kind
     F         F/E           F/D      F         Am         D/A
It's sizzling blood, and the unholy stench of MURDER
         F                                 D7
It's not natural, normal, or kind ... the flesh you so fancifully fry
    F             F/E        F/D          F          Am         D/A
The meat in your mouth as you savor the flavor of murder
F   F/E  F/D  F          Am  D/A    F   F/E  F/D  F           Am    C
No,  no,  no ... it's murder...     no,  no,  no ...  it's murder
Who hears when animals cry?
Am   F   G/D   F        Am   F     Am   F

I love this song!
And I think its a shame Morrissey got chased outta England for speaking his mind!
I'll comment on the actual tab when I've played it, sorry. That probably wont be for a while - TOO MANY DAMN EXAMS! :(

But thanks for trying - not many people listen to this song because of all the lyrics and stuff and I was surprised to find someone had tabbed it - so THANK-YOU :D

This helped, but but instead of G/D is just slide the F chord shape up to the third fret.
