Withered Hand - No Cigarettes

This is a tab for the backing chords to Withered Hand's awesome song No
Cigarettes, seriously, this guy is amazing. The timing is pretty easy when
you get the hang of it.

Capo 3 - Chords relative to capo. Play barre chords, diagrams are at the end.


|Am      |D       |C       |G   G/F# |
|Am      |C       |D       |C   G        
|G/F#    |

At the end of the G chord walk down the low E string: E-----3--2-----

Verse 1

Am                           D
Think me and you could maybe use a lost weekend
Am                    C
I've been losing all my friends
Am                   D
I wave another empty bottle in your face,
Am                  C
Like I'm hitting it hard
But it's just pretend
'cos you know I'm not
C                           G
   I wouldn't know where to start
     G/F#       Am
I've been there before
I went and got lost,
           C                          G            G/F#
Always the back end of this pantomime horse

Verse 2

Am                              D
All we seem to do these days is wave our arms and yell
Am                  C
   Other people are hell
Am                                   D
And what's that song you're singing, everybody hurts?
Am              C
  And everybody lies,
Don't wanna remember,
too many regrets
C               G
     And no cigarettes
     G/F#      Am
'cos I'm not a smoker,
But I said I was
         C                         G
And the elevator stuck between the floors
   G/F#       Am
Is getting to me
Don't let him forsake you
C                              G
Rack 'em up and knock 'em down again
       G/F#       Am
You're changing direction
I won't know where I was
    C                         G
The back end of the pantomime horse
   G/F#       Am
Is getting to me


Am        G
Ooooooooh delay              (lyrics? possibly odelay)
C          G         Am
Maestro, a drum roll please
Am                 D strum once
This is the golden age


Verse 3

Am                D
Staring down the corners of the room
Am              C
Another nowhere town
Am                        D
When everything I sing is in a minor key
Am                 C
I have to write it down,
Or I won't remember
Then I'll get it wrong
C                              G
                This isn't the song,
             G/F#        Am
I'm thinking I'm not the singer
That I thought I was
       C                     G
In the solitude before the applause
   G/F#       Am
Is getting to me


Am           G
Ooooooooooh delay
C         G         Am
Maestro a drum roll please
Am                 D strum once
This is the golden age



|Am      |D       |C       |G strum once

The alternative C chord sounds a bit more like the recording I think, I may
be completely wrong.

the D doesnt sound right to me and im pretty sure he doesnt use bar chords if you look at this youtube video you can kinda see the fingering i suck at that though so i don't really have a suggestion

The D should be a Dmin7 (unsure on the chord name, it goes E-200210-e). In the verses, instead of the 2nd Am, it should drop to Em for half a measure, then G for half a measure and THEN the C.

i.e. Am Dmin7
Think me an you could maybe use a lost weekend
Em G C (then walk down the A string: 3---2--)
I've been losing all my friends

Its two sets of this at the start of each verse, then two sets of Am--> Dmin7--> Em--> C--> G (with C and G switched, also walking down the E string 3---2--)
