Turin Brakes – Average Man
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Tim Lawson
Email: timlawson100@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard Tuning (EADGBe)

Average man, very nice chord progression here. Fiddle around with the rhythm,
you’ll get it soon enough :)


Chords:

   Bm  Am  Em  F#5 D   G  
E|-2---0---0---x---2---3---
B|-3---1---0---x---3---0---
G|-4---2---0---x---2---0---
D|-4---2---2---4---0---0---
A|-2---0---2---4---0---2---
E|-2---x---0---2---x---3---

Please note: on the version of the cd you mostly only hear the lower notes of the
chords strummed. And dont get scared by the F#5 powerchord, I think a F#minor
also works in stead off the F#5 if you’re planning to play everything in bare.
But as i said you only hear the lower notes so the F#5 was more of an indication
of what strings to hit. I try to keep as much open chords in my playing as possible though :)


Intro:

Bm  Am  Em  F#5  x 2



Verse 1:

Bm           Am
  If i was a farmer

Em             F#5
  Instead of a faker

Bm           Am
  If i was a realer

Em                  F#5
  and not just some raker

Bm                 Am
  Raking through a memory

Em              F#5 
  that doesn't belong to me

Bm               Am
  Just someone I could of been

Em               F#5
  if only i kept walking...



Chorus:

D              G
  Have another drink my son

D               G
  Enjoy another cigarette

D                    G
  'Cos it's time you realised...

        Em             Bm
you're just an average man...



Verse 2:

Bm           Am
  Alone on a motorway

Em                   F#5
  you catch you're breath

Bm                Am
  Cat's eyes lead everyway

Em       F#5
  to lonesomness

Bm                   Am
  Since you learn to hide your fears

Em                  F#5
  and downsize your dreams

Bm                     Am
  Still alive, still sincere

  Em       F#5
inside the scheme...



Chorus:

D              G
  Have another drink my son

D               G
  Enjoy another cigarette

D                    G
  'Cos it's time you realised...

        Em             Bm
you're just an average man...



Verse 3: (different chord progression)

Bm               D    G    Em
  And ff this is dark-ness here

Bm               D    G       Em     G
  And if this is dark-ness... coming



Chorus:

D              G
  Have another drink my son

D               G
  Enjoy another cigarette

D                    G
  'Cos it's time you realised...

        Em             Bm
you're just an average man...
