16 Miles (Boo Hewerdine)
------------------------

This is on Boo Hewerdine's second album, Ignorance. It's in Ab (capo at 1)
both live and on the album. Below is written as though played in G at the nut.


[Intro & verse] :

  (G)       C+2     C(b5)+2  Dsus4       D  Em7      Em7(+2) Em7
                         *               *               *
e----------|---3-3-3-3-3-2-|---3-3-3-3-3-2-|---3-3-3-3-3-2-|---3-3-3-3-3-|
B----------|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|---3-3-3-3-3-3-|---3-3-3-3-3-|
G----------|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
D----------|-2-------------|-0-------------|-2-------------|-2----------:|
A--0-2-0-3-|-3-------------|---------------|-2-------------|-2-----------|
E-3--------|---------------|---------------|(0)------------|(0)----------|

Just keep that tab going throughout the song (except the bridge).


Cadd2           *        Dsus4               *      Em7                *
D'you ever see London at night and not want to go   home ?
D'you ever take drugs    stay up late       just to see what you would see
D'you ever have love and hate scratched  across your hand ?
                                                           or did you turn
round                      with     16         miles to go ?


Cadd2              *       Dsus4                *             Em7     *
D'you ever  just   walk     away    and      disappear for days ?
D'ou ever have a girl----friend       called            Catherine Wheel?
D'you  ever come home from work  and  say  I'm never going back again?
                                                         or did you turn
round                         with      16         miles  to  go ?

   


[Outro]:

first 3 bars of TAB above, followed by :
   Em7                                                       /F# G
e --3---3-----3---3------3--3--3--3---3-3-3-3-3----3-3-3-3-3--3--3----||
B --3---3-----3---3------3--3--3--3---3-3-3-3-3----3-3-3-3-3--3--3----||
G --0---0-----0---0------0--0--0--0---0-0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0-0--0--0----||
D --2---2-----2---2------2--2--2--2---2-2-2-2-2----2-2-2-2-2--0--0----||

                         .  .  .  .

                         | -->
                         Heavy on the bass strings


EADGBe
X32033 - Cadd2
X32032 - C(b5)add2  -  'flattened fifth'
XX0233 - Dsus4
XX0232 - D
022033 - Em7
022033 - Em7add2
320033 - G
022100 - E
022200 - Esus4

The trick is to fret the B and e strings 'the wrong way round' (i.e. pinky on
B string, 3rd finger on e string) so you can slide down to the second fret on
the e string for the last beat in each bar (marked * above).

e.g. for a Cadd2 going to C(b5)add2 (second bar)

I think that's about it, any comments (or better chord names!) welcome.
