Twilight Capers - Be Bop Deluxe

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Tabbed by twilightcapers

 

Second track from the 'Modern Music' album.  This tab covers the electric guitar parts mostly, for the acoustic guitar strum more freely, I have added chord names but you could substitute regular major chords for the verses if you like - listen to the track to get it just right, I have tried to keep it simple and capture the essence of it. Go for a slow, epic feel.

Lyrics:

 

All the white horses ran bleeding to the end

Shot through the heart by dear devoted passion

And the falling stars that never fall

But send ambassadors to call

Still call the guilty guns to heaven

 

All the wild ones keep their shades pulled down

They hide their dead eyes from the ground

They starve their souls with murder proud

Beneath the shroud, beneath the shroud

 

And in a corner by the door, in a picture on the wall

Hangs a man of hollow leather

I can see his broken grin, his fallen hope his glorious sin

Bejewelled and robed in splendour

 

See the clouds form without sound

Dark and swollen, torn and bound

By the storm that screams around

In the heads of those he found

Beneath the ground, beneath the ground

 

in the grey corridors of melting ice...

In the cold golden claw of autumn nights...

You can find us again in paradise...

 

We are the voice in the shadows, the curse that's binding

We the crack in the mirror, the seeker finding

We are the light in the lantern, your blindness brought you

We are the dazzling phantoms...

Of dark misfortune...
