Marble Arch

Tabs by Miguel A. Dominguez

Miguel says:
In order to play the chord intro you have to tune the E low string 1/2 step down and then don't touch that string anymore. All chords along this theme are played practically in the middle strings A D G B.

Abm7 ----------------------- C#m7 ---------------
I see a sky of stars and realise that I'm divided

Abm7 ----------------------- C#m7 -------------
I hear a sad guitar and I decide I'm undecided

------------ B ----- F# --- Abm7 -- Gb9 
How can I be true to me and true to you?

---- B ---------------------- F# -----
I'd pick the past apart and change it

Abm7 -------- Gb9
Unplay every part

----------- B --------- F# -----
Change the cast and rearrange it

------ Abm7 ----------------- Gb9 
Get it right, right from the start

--------------- Abm7 --------------- Gb9 - D#7
right from the start, right from the start

Abm7 --------------------------------- C#m7 ----------------
The march passed marble arch and the parade rolled time away

Abm7 -------------------- C#m7 -------------
I saw an open door into before and I escaped

Abm7 ---------------------------------
Kickiní round the alleys and the lanes

C#m7 ------------------------------------
Flickiní through the memories that remain

------------------ B ----- F# ----- Abm7 ---- Gb9
Seems like such a shame to wish for more the same

------------------ B -------- F# ---- (G) --
I'd pick the past apart and change it

Abm7 ------- Gb9
Unplay every part

----------- B --------- F# ----- (G) --
Change the cast and rearrange it

------Abm7-------------------Gb9
Get it right, right from the start

-------------- Abm7 ---------------- Gb9 - D#7
right from the start, right from the start


Instrumental Bridge:
 
  (Abm7 ---- C#m7(*) )


Abm7 ----------------------------------
Kickiní round the alleys and the lanes

C#m7 -----------------------------------
Flicking through the memories that remain

Abm7 -------------------------------------------------------
Got a glimpse of the me that became the one that you see now

C#m7 --------------------------------------------------
Trying on a voice like a manís for the boys in the band

Abm7 -----------------------------------------------------
Took a trip and I slipped and I tore up the street to the 

---------------------
house where you lived

---- C#m7 \ 
And somehow opened the door and walked onto a beach

                 B ------- D#7(*) --- Abm7 ---- Gb9
God made all the stars and sea   for  you  and  me

------------ B --------------- F# --- (G)
I'd pick the past apart and change it

Abm7 -------- Gb9
Unplay every part

----------- B -------- F# ----- (G) --
Change the cast and rearrange it


----- Abm7 ----------------- Gb9 -
Get it right, right from the start

--------------- Abm7 --------------- Gb9 -- D#7
right from the start, right from the start

-------------- (outro)
right from the  start


Outro:
Ab - Dbmaj7 - F# - Bmaj7 - E - Amaj7 - Abmaj7
