Tuning: Standard

[Intro]

Bb  Am  Gm  C

[Verse 1]

     Bb     Am
Theologians
                  Gm     C
They don't know nothing
             Bb    Am
About my soul
             Gm   C
About my soul

[Chorus]

         Bb    Am
I'm an ocean
                Gm    C
An abyss in motion
       F    D7
Slow motion
       Gm    Bb C
Slow motion

  F                    D7
Inlitterati lumen fidei
                       Gm   Bb C
God is with us everyday
        F            D7
That illiterate light
                     Gm   Bb C
Is with us every night

[Verse 2]

     Bb      Am
Theologians
                 Gm       C
That don't know nothing
             Bb   Am
About my soul
                 Gm     C
Oh they don't know

      F                              D7
They thin my heart with little things
                      Gm    Bb C
And my life with change
      F            D7
Oh in so many ways
                             Gm  Bb C
I find more missing every day

    Bb      Am  Gm  C  (x2)
Theologians

  I lay it down
            G5
A ghost is born
A ghost is born
A ghost is born

[Chorus]

        Bb   Am
I'm an ocean
           Gm   C
I'm all emotion
               Bb   Am
I'm a cherry ghost
        Gm   C
Cherry ghost

                     Bb   Am
Hey I'm a cherry ghost
          Gm   C
A cherry ghost

[Outro]

Bb  Am  Gm  C (x3)
Bb

===============================================================================
That's pretty much it. I didn't put in the little slidey parts cos they're
scattered everywhere and the tab would look messy. I didn't put the 2nd solo
in either, cos it's only about 6/7 notes, so it aint worth it.

You got the solo wrong, Dave!!! It's G hammer G# :(

I'm not entirely sure of the D7, either, but meh, good enough.

:cheers:

Instead of the D7, try this... I dont know the name of the chord, but this is how I play it. Its some variation of a D chord with an F# in the bass. It sounds better to my ear when the high E is muted.

yeah that's just a D7/F#, same notes and everything, but you're right, the bass run probably sounds better (although I haven't actually played this song in years :p)
