Song - Sister I'm A Poet Artist - Colin Meloy Album - Colin Meloy Sings Morrisey Standard Tuning - EADGBE This is a nice song to play, with not a lot of chords but the chords do change fast. Large spaces between chords where there are no lyrics indicate they go on for longer! barre chords do sound tighter, but open chords sound just fine as well. Enjoy :) ~ E G A E G A G A G E G A E G A G E A C#m And all over this town A A slow wind may blow B And I can see through everybody's clothes A B With no reason to hide these words I feel A B And no reason to talk about the books I read E But still I do G A E That's cause I'm a... G A G Sister I'm a... A G E All over this town E E G A G A G E A C#m Along the way outside the prison gates A B I love the romance of crime And I wonder A B Does anybody feel the same way I do? A B And is evil just something you are E Or something you do? G A E But now I'm a... G A G Sister I'm a... A G E All over this town E E G A G A G E G A E G A G A G E A C#m And all over this town A They pull over in their Citroen vans B Not to shake your hand A With meths on their breaths B And you with youth on your side A B A plastic bag stranded at the light E This once was me... G A E But now I'm a... G A G Sister I'm a... A G E All over this town G A E Oh, all over this town G A E All over this town G A G A All over this town G E Oh... ~ Here's a little variation you can add to the E major chord of the main riff that's followed A chord. e|-0------0-0--- b|-0------0-0--- G|-1--0h1-1-1--- D|-2--2---2-2--- A|-2------2-2--- E|-0------0-0--- in short, quickly strum the first E chord, lift off your pointer finger that should have been on the 1st fret of the G string so it is now open, then pluck the D string, with your middle finger still on the 2nd fret from the chord, then hammer back onto the 1st fret of the G string with your pointer finger, then 2 very quick strums of the E major chord, it sounds great when it's pulled off :)
