XTC-Chalkhills and Children
Tabbed By: Matt Skeefe (pavmint@gmail.com)

The beautiful ending piece to "Oranges and Lemons" by Partridge and Company,
featuring some atmospheric jazz chords on the keyboards. This is how I play 
it acoustically. Below are my preferred voicings (Low E to High E), though
they are mostly barre chords, anyway. It's not as hard to memorize as you 
think:

C: 8-10-10-9-8-x
Bbmaj7: 6-x-7-7-6-5
Fsus4: x-8-10-10-11-x
Fmaj7 (Verse): x-8-10-9-10-x
Eb: x-6-8-8-8-x
Dm9: x-5-3-5-3-0
Ebmaj7: x-x-1-3-3-3
Em: x-x-2-0-0-5 (Open high E if you can't stretch)
Fmaj7 (Pre-Chorus): x-x-3-5-5-5
Ebmaj7 in Chorus: x-6-8-7-8-6
Dm7: x-5-7-5-6-5
C#maj7: x-4-6-5-6-4
Fmaj7 (Chorus): 1-x-2-2-1-0
C/F: 1-3-2-0-1-0 (Use thumb on the low F)
Bmaj7/F: 1-1-3-2-3-1
F: 1-3-3-2-1-1
Ab6: x-3-1-1-1-1
Fm6/C: x-3-0-1-1-1
C#maj7/6: x-4-6-5-6-6
Abmaj7/Eb: x-6-5-5-4-4


Verse:

C                              Bbmaj7   C            Fsus4     Fmaj7            Eb
I'm floating over strange land It's a soulless sequined showbiz

Bbmaj7

Pre-Chorus:

Dm9             Ebmaj7  Em          Fmaj7
But I'm getting higher wafted up by fames fickle fire til the...


Chorus:

Ebmaj7         Dm7                C#maj7       F
Chalkhills and children anchor my feet... 

Ebmaj7         Dm7                  Fmaj7   C/F   Bbmaj7/F      C/F
Chalkhills and children bringing me back to earth eternally and ever ermine

    Ab6/C                Fm6/C
even I never know where I go when my eyes are closed...


Bridge:

Ab6/C   C#maj7/6   Abmaj7/Eb  C#maj7/6

Outro:
Ebmaj7  Dm7
Ad Infinitum

Oh, and here's the keyboard riff that shows up so frequently throughout the song:

G|-12--14--15----------14--15--14--12-----------------------------------------|
