(tabbed by James Purdy. This is my first tab so send comments, corrections, or hate mail
to alabaster21m@yahoo.com. This is a song I always wanted to learn but never found the
chords or was able to translate the original version on piano by Morrissey.  However I
was able to translate an almost identical (Chord wise) acoustic version by Colin Meloy
on "Colin Meloy Sings Morrissey." I found help with lyrics from "It May All End Tomorrow"

I've Changed My Plea to Guilty
from Viva Hate (UK) and My early Burglary Years


C/E  G6  Am/E  Gb  G6  (2X)

Verse 1:

C/E (x3111x@5)                  G6 (320000@1)   Am/E (x02210@1)             Gb (244322@1)       G6 (320000@1)  I'm standing in the dock.    With my innocent hand on my heart.

F (133211@1)   G6 (320000@1)       C/E (x3111x@5)C7/E              F (133211@1)        G6 (320000@1)    C (x32010@1)   C7/E
 I've changed my plea.             I've changed my plea to guilty.

        F (133211@1)        E (022100@1)       Am/E (x02210@1) F (133211@1)          Gb (244322@1)            G6Because (320000@1)freedom is wasted on me.    See how your rules spoil the game?

Verse 2:

C/E (x3111x@5)                     G6 (320000@1)Am/E (x02210@1)      Gb (244322@1)      G6 (320000@1)            C/E (x3111x@5)  Outside there is a pain.     Emotional air raids exhausted my heart,

         G6 (320000@1)          Am/E (x02210@1)Gb (244322@1)G6 (320000@1)      F (133211@1)       G6 (320000@1)       C/E (x3111x@5)C7/E
and it's safer to be inside.                So, I'm changing my plea,

F (133211@1)        G6 (320000@1)         C/E (x3111x@5)C7/E           F (133211@1)         E (022100@1)       Am/E (x02210@1)and no one can dissuade me.        Because freedom was wasted on me.

F (133211@1)          Gb (244322@1)            G6See (320000@1)how your rules spoil the game?

Verse 3:

C/E (x3111x@5)               G6 (320000@1)    Am/E (x02210@1)          Gb (244322@1)         G6 (320000@1) 
   Something I have learned,    if there is one thing in life I've observed,

C/E (x3111x@5)        G6 (320000@1)            Am/E (x02210@1)  Gb (244322@1)G6 (320000@1)       F (133211@1) G6 (320000@1)    C/E (x3111x@5)C7/E
   it's that everybody's got somebody.              Ooh no, not me.

F (133211@1)                 G6 (320000@1)    C/E (x3111x@5) C7/E        F (133211@1)        E (022100@1)          Am/E (x02210@1)So I've changed my plea to guilty.       And reason and freedom is a waste.

       F (133211@1)  Gb (244322@1)G6 (320000@1)     C/EIt's (x3111x@5)a lot like life.
