Here's one of the Bates' great cover-versions. This song's an all time classic and just rocks if played this way. But to cut a long story short, you already know this song well and will hopefully be happy about the tab. You find the chordchart as usually below the song. Have Fun:

                            HELLO  - THE BATES

Intro/Verse(play with some echo effect(or vibrato) and let each chord ring):

A                            B
Woke up this morning and the streets were full of cars,
D                                A
all bright and shiny like they'd just arrived from mars,
A                              B
and as I stumbled through last night's drunken debris,
D                             A
the paperboy screamed out the headlines in the street.

Verse(now guitar 2 starts with the rhythm,which is kinda folk-rock, but just listen to CD):

Em                      D
Another war and now the pound is looking weak,
C                          Bm
and tell me have you read about the latest freak?
Em                          D
We're bingo numbers and our names are obsolete.
C                            B7(gradually add distortion)
Why do I feel bitter, when I should be feelin' sweet?

Chorus(w/ distortion, all powerchords now, and palm muted punk rhythm):

E5           C#5                G#5   B5
Hello , hello,  turn your radio on,
         E5               C#5                G#5    B5
is there anybody out there,  help me sing my song,

         F#5               G#5 - A5  (guitar stops, bass is playing alone)
la la la life is a strange thing:
                                                 E (then pick through)
Just when you think you know how to use it, it's gone.

Verse 2 (played the same way as intro/verse):

A                           B
Woke up this morning and my head was in a dace,
D                             A
a brave new world has dawned upon the human race,
A                               B
where words are meaningless and everything's surreal,
D                                 B
gonna have to reach my friends to find out how I feel.

Verse 2 (played like verse 1, start with the rhythm):

Em                        D
And if I taste the honey "Is it really sweet?"
C                       Bm
And do I eat it with my hands or with my feet?
Em                  D
Does anybody really listen when I speak?
C                         B7
Or will I have to say it all again next week?

-Repeat first part of chorus twice over E5-C#5-G#5-B5 chord progression, change the lyrics of the last line(when played 2nd time) to:
         E5               C#5                  G#5    B5
Is there anybody out there,  tell me what went wrong.

-During the solo the rhythm guitar sticks with the Chorus chord progression and repeats the la la la life part.

-Repeat first part of chorus twice, then play la la - part, which is the OUTRO:
guitar 2 lets E - chord ring then guitar 1 fades out silently with A - chord and echo effect. Got it ? :-)

   A    E5   B    E    D    Em   C    Bm   B7   C#5  G#5  B5   F#5  A5

It took me a while getting this one typed. One of the reasons is that they forgot to put the lyrics in the cover, so I had to find those out by myself and I'm not sure, if they're right. Mail me corrections ?
