The Girls in Their Summer Dresses by The Airborne Toxic Event

tabbed by Marley88

Standard Tuning (EADGBE)

Capo 4th Fret

All chord positions listed are relative to the capo.

Intro: C C F G

I play it something like this, again all numbers are relative to capo on the 4th fret.

  C                             F              G

Verse 1:


It's so quiet on these windswept days

    F                G

The city lights look golden rays


The sunlight on a subway track

          F                 G                   F          

So you're mad again, if you like, I'll take it back


They're just your feelings


I wasn't looking at her eyes


Oh, do you mean it?

Verse 2: Same chord pattern as verse 1.

It's so lonesome in this happenstance
If you asked me, yes, I'd like to dance
Just show me your blood-covered hand
A perfumed dress is more than I can stand

And you approach me
With your hollow heart in hand
And you tell me:

Verse 3: Same chord pattern

It's not civilised
It's not fair to me
The blues, the greys
The olive greens
I'll take you far away from me
The girls in their summer dress, see?

Though you don't notice
They all look back at me
Is this on purpose?

Chorus 1: Play Intro Riff for the Chorus. The switches happen as shown.

C C F     G

      Oh, no, no, no!
      Oh, no, no, no! 
      Oh, no, no, no!

Interlude: Theres a measure of just scratched rhythm leading into the interlude.

        Em                 Am

May I offer you this one olive branch?

      F                               G

It's not as though you're always so keyed

           Em                       Am

And we're both just the victims of circumstance

         F                             G

Do you understand, do you know what I mean?

Chrous 2:

Oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!
Oh, no, no, no!

(No, no, no)

Verse 4:

I'm a husband first, I'm a childless curse
I'm a faithful man, with a faceless thirst
I'll stay with you, but please don't side
Tried to explain, but you cry and cry and cry

And you hate me when I ask the reason why
You'll trade me a dollar for some sense
But don't blame me, I was only making sense
Oh, I'm so sorry, I was only making sense

(after the last G position chord, the song ends on a C position relative to capo.)
