 SONG: Violet
 Tabbed by: Shaun Booth
 Email: concern_in_vain@hotmail.com

 Key: F is a low F: 133211 (the 211's are optional to your playing)
      Fh is a high F: x81010xxx (an octave up)
 It sounds better to play barre chords for most of the chords except maybe the Dm.
 F (133211@1)                 G (320003@1)           A# (x1333x@1)  C (x32010@1)     F (133211@1) Tonight the drunks are infected, we're on our way
                 G (320003@1)         A# (x1333x@1)name="chord_x32010@1">C    F (133211@1)As if they drop by to see me uninvited
 A# (x1333x@1)     C (x32010@1)          Fh           C (x32010@1)           A# (x1333x@1)   And I am a wallflower, maybe a better father
           C (x32010@1)This is a job
 F (133211@1)            G (320003@1) For seconds I miss the Bentleys
   A# (x1333x@1) C (x32010@1)           F (133211@1)Today maybe they'll call,
              G (320003@1)              A# (x1333x@1)  C (x32010@1)          F (133211@1)You describe every prison you pass through them all 
 A# (x1333x@1)      C (x32010@1)                F (133211@1)        Aadd9 (x02420@1)  Then he asked you for your head and I vowed to burn your bed
 Dm (xx0231@1)          G (320003@1)                 A# (x1333x@1) Try to pretend, but this is your life,
      C (x32010@1)somehow, it feels right
 bridge: (see an alternative way to play this bit at the end) 
 F (133211@1)                          C (x32010@1) I'm calling this evolution, I'm falling for institution
 Dm (xx0231@1)           C (x32010@1)          A# (x1333x@1) Warm submission enveloping you
 A|------------3-1-| (violin fill)
 (repeat chords)
 Tomorrow I'll survive the questions
 Knives buried with cold indifference
 My world is true rendered by you
 (violin fill x2)

  Aadd9 (x02420@1)        A# (x1333x@1)          C (x32010@1)             F (133211@1)Here they come again, I could never find the words
       C (x32010@1)              A# (x1333x@1)So I disguised them in verse
          C (x32010@1)                Fh
 Until it comes out dumb and wrong,
               C (x32010@1) A# (x1333x@1)          C (x32010@1)The simplest song, if you sing along
 *bridge: alternative playing method 
 the way i originally learnt that bridge section:
    *  *               #
 A|--8--7-5-5-55-3-33-333-1~-| -then play the violin fill
 *played 16 times
 #note the little change here


 The Joey Cape version of the song on the Tony Sly split has an extra section to 
 F (133211@1)                A# (x1333x@1)(Marry me Kristen, marry me Kristen
 G (320003@1)       C (x32010@1)I want to be the only one)
 (use the "bridge" chords for this)
 I'm painting a revolution
 I'm falling for institution
 Warm colors enveloping blue

 ("bridge" chords again)
 Shot of comfort in a warm convention
 Medicinal injection
 36 years ended by you 


 *as this 3 is played, the F chord for the next section is played, so you can play 
them simultaneously

 F (133211@1)                 G (320003@1) Tonight the drunks are infected
 A# (x1333x@1)  C (x32010@1)    F (133211@1)We're on our way

 /  =  slide up
   =  slide down
 ~  =  let ring
 X  =  mute

 just listen to the song to get the timing

 email me if you have any questions/queries

 will post a youtube video soon
