CRD 'Weekend' by The Wildhearts
Lifted indiscriminantly from the EP 'Don't be happy, just worry'

Tabbed by Luke Hayward (d.hayward@virgin.net)

This is one of the best song the 'Hearts have ever written. It's so
easy it didn't need working out, but just for the record it goes like

Oh yeah, and I'm doing this from memory which is what everyone says.
But I am, so the lyrics might be a bit off in places. But there you go.

G			     C
Monday comes crashing in and all the world looks grey again

D		  Em		     A		  C
Faces on the train seem grim, when yesterday the same were smiling

G			C
Another week to kill, another week were time stands still

D		     Em			A		    C
And shuffling masses feel the chill that comes with their routine

    D	    A
The working scene

(ok, then there's a huge slide and the overdrive kicks in, it's all
power chords from here on in - same pattern though)

G7			  C7
Get out of bed and then I turn on MTV again

D7			Em7
To watch the same songs I can't stand

A7		      C7
They sing of love and being happy

//same chord sequence here I'm afraid

Look there's another one that sounds just like the other one
A video without the fun
Is being played again

D7		A7
Which pains me more

D7				      G7
But at the weekend, everything'll be okay   (when the weekend comes)

And at the weekend I'll tell the world
	C7   (slide up to)	D7
That for five long days I been wantin' to say (wantin' to say)

G7       C7       G7	  C7	      G7	C7
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna ride upon a five mile tide

G7		     C7	
And a *something* of oblivion

A7	D7	  A7		  D7    D7 (strike on words)
Rain or shine I'm waiting at the front line

G7         C7         G7	     C7		 A7
I need it, I need it, like you would not believe it

A7	      D7 (slide up to)  E7
And I've been dying to change my ways

    G7   A7   C7    D7  C7   D7   G7
But I've been drunk for five long days

// christ, this next bit goes all wibbly wobbly, but I reckon it goes 
// something like this...

G7 F#7 F7  (repeated over and over)

// and then there's a riff based in G, but I can't remember it
// but it might just be...


// ...and unfortunately, I lost my Don't be Happy... tape, so I can't 
// even see if this is right - so don't flame me if it isn't. I think
// all 'Hearts tunes are tuned a half step down so try that. Remember,
// power chords will get you far in life, almost to the top, but there
// are some things that they wont get you.
// Isn't great that we've all come out of this better people?
