Right, here we have a cool song, but tune down half a step or it
will sound very very very wrong. All notation is relative to the
tuning and no responsibility can be taken for badly tuned guitars.

** Public Announcement Over **

"This is our new single, it's out on Monday. Buy it as an Easter present
for someone... put us in the realms of the Bluetones and Pulp. We
wanna be ***ing pop stars!"  - Ginger, Sound City 1996


INTRO RIFF

|----------10-------------|
|-----9-----------9-------|
|--7-----7-----7-----7--9-|
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
NB: when playing this, lock yer first finger on the 7th fret and only fret
    the other strings when they need to be sounded.

This is played 4 times and then a second guitar plays A, E, D barre chords
over it in a clean(ish) tone. This is done twice before you let rip and riff
the chords over the intro. Now the verses...

A7		 E7
Waking up with an 8.2
				A7
When it seemed like the easiest thing to do
			  D7
When someone said "here's one for you!"

|-----------------------------------|

|------4--5--4----------------------|
|---5--------------0--4--5--4-------|

A7			E7
Mouth's so dried and I just spit ash
				     A7
There's a hole in my pocket full of wasted cash
			    D7
But it's all right, it was just back stash

"Jump inside", he said, I tried,

And who am I to disagree? 

Chorus
      D7	  A7		   E7	      A7	
(Oh,) how can you stay when you're 60 million miles away?
D7	    A7			   C#7
How can you fly when you're home free?
	 D7          A7		    E7			  A7
And(/oh) how can you feel when your mind's made up like a will of steel?
D7	    A7		 C#7
How can you deal in your dreams? 

C#m7  Bm7   A7
Sick   of   ecstasy 

// the rest of the song follows the chord sequences used above
// it's a question of listening to the record (sic)

Kicked in bad and you got too low
To be down in a company you don't know
Said "Come on in got a right good blow"
Yeah, talking, talking the hole's clear
Until a guy with a goatee on a touch of beer
Which went round the room like diahorea 

Bored with this, I'm bored with that
I'm stuck in bed alone with a-you know what
Notice
With your heart beating outta your chest 

Chorus 

Sick of LSD

Chorus x2 

Sick of (certain kinds of) drugs are we
