Regardless of who else heard this song, I heard it and I loved it. This file
represents my best attempt at transcribing it. Corrections, comments or

           "Madeline"(Blasey,James,Joseph,Minarik)

Performed by The Clarks on "Love Gone Sour Suspicion and Bad Debt"(1994)
Guitar part transcribed here performed on the album by Scott Blasey and
Robert James
Lyrics by Blasey

  (drum intro)

   verse(guitar 1)
    rhy.fig.1-         D         B5     A
   E-------------------2-2-2------------------------------|
   B-------------------3-3-3------------2-----------------|
   G-------------------2-2-2-----4------2-----------------|
   D---2h4--x--------------------4------2-----------------|
   A-----------2-----------------2------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|

   That riff is played twice before the vocals and the second guitar are
added. Guitar one and guitar two work together in this fashion:

   guitar 1(clean electric)-
   E--------------------2-2-2-----------------------------|
   B--------------------3-3-3----------2------------------|
   G--------------------2-2-2-----4----2------------------|
   D----2h4--x--------------------4----2------------------|
   A------------2-----------------2-----------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   ||guitar 2(clean electric)-                           ||
   || rhy.fig. 2-       Bm        G                      ||
   E--------------------2---------3-------------5---------|
   B--------------------3---------3----------------5------|
   G--------------------4---------0-----------------------|
   D--------------------4---------0-----------------------|
   A--------------------2---------2----0------------------|
   E------------------------------3-----------------------|

   The lyrics that go overtop of this part go like this:

   Madeline flows like a summer stream
   She talks with her eyes she moves in a dream
   Sincerity grows in a pasture of green
   Madeline flows

   At this point guitar 2 plays something like this:
   fill 1-
   E----------------3p2------0------------0---------------|
   B------------3---------------3------------3------------|
   G-------------------------------0------------0---------|
   D-------2--------------------------0-------------------|
   A---0--------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   After that part, guitar one plays the same riff as in the first
verse,while guitar 2 plays something different. The two guitars work
together like this:
   guitar 1-
   E--------------------2-2-2-----------------------------|
   B--------------------3-3-3-----------2-----------------|
   G--------------------2-2-2------4----2-----------------|
   D----2h4--x---------------------4----2-----------------|
   A------------2------------------2----------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   ||guitar 2(rhy.fig. 3)-                               ||
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   B------------------------------------------------------|
   G--------------------0---------------------------------|
   D--------------------------------------------2---------|
   A-----------------------------2------0-----------------|
   E-------------0----------------------------------------|

   The lyrics for this part go like this:

   Abigail flies on a silver wing
   She might let me go she might let me sing
   Prosperity lies in a mountain of things
   Abigail flies(fill 1)

   This next part I'm not exactly sure of. Generally,though, the chords
sound like this:
   chorus-
    Em                    D                           A
    And when you find her tell her you don't mind the way that she
                 G                 D       Em                  C6
    crosses her legs she winks to let you know I only like to observe
                         D      Dadd9   D
    I don't profess to know
   chords used:
      Em     D    A    G     C6     Dadd9
   E---------2---------3-----3------0-------|
   B---------3----2----3-----1------3-------|
   G---------2----2----0-----2------2-------|
   D---2----------2----0-----2--------------|
   A---2---------------2--------------------|
   E---0---------------3--------------------|
        I'm pretty sure that the corresponding barre chords are played along
with these open chords except on a guitar with a distorted tone. I'm not
positive though, unfortunately.

The next two verses have the same sequence as the first two.

(rhy.fig.1 and rhy.fig.2)

   Kira comes on like the morning sun
   She opens her eyes she looks out for fun
   Affinity flies through a canyon of one
   Kira comes on(fill 1)

(rhy.fig.1 and rhy.fig.3)

   Tabatha walks in the pouring rain
   She closes her eyes to block out the pain
   Disparity flows in a river of shame
   Tabatha walks(fill 1)

If I remember correctly, at this point the "And when you find her..." part
is repeated with the same lyrics and chord progression. The only difference
comes afterwards, during the "And in the garden of blue..." part. At that
point, guitar 2 does something like this:
   (fill 2)
   guitar 2-       C                             D
                    And in the garden of blue she's coming
   E---------------------------0-----------------------2--|
   B------------------------1-----1-----------------3-----|
   G---------------------0-----------0-----------2--------|
   D-----------0------2-----------------2-----0-----------|
   A---0--0h2------3-----------------------2--------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
                  A
      back to you and the feeling's true
   E-----------------------0------------------0-----------|
   B--3-----------------2-----2------------------2--------|
   G-----2-----------2-----------2------------------2-----|
   D--------0-----2-----------------2------------------2--|
   A-----------0-----------------------0------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
             Oh Madeline won't you tell me what you're gon-
   E---------------------0-----------------------2--------|
   B------------------1-----1-----------------3-----3-----|
   G---------------0-----------0-----------2-----------2--|
   D------0-----2-----------------2-----0-----------------|
   A-0h2-----3-----------------------2--------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
    na   do
   E------------|
   B------------|
   G------------|
   D---0---2----|
   A-------2----|
   E-------0----|

I transcribed the solo as well as I could. Some,all, or none of it may be
right. It does sound right though...at least to me. If you disagree, you
know where to find me. Anyway, this is what I came up with. You'll probably
want to flip the pickup switch to the top position. Experiment with the tone
until you find something that you're comfortable with.
   (rhy.figs 1&2 played underneath)
   solo(guitar 3)-
   E---------------------------------5\7---5~~~~~~\(19)---|
   B-----7h8p7\5--7--5-------4\5--------------------------|
   G--------------------7p4-------------------------------|
   D------------------------------------------------------|
   A------------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
    (sweep)
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   B----7--8--10--8--7h8p7--------------------------------|
   G--7----------------------9p7h9------------------------|
   D------------------------------------------------------|
   A------------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|
                        (softer)          (distortion on)
   E------------------------------------------------------|
   B------------------------------------------------------|
   G---------9p7--------------9p7----------------12\14----|
   D---7-7-9------------7-7-9-----------------------------|
   A------------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|

   E--------------15--14----------------------------------|
   B--15-------15----------15-----------------------------|
   G------14-------------------14-12----------------------|
   D----------------------------------14--12h14p12--12\14-|
   A------------------------------------------------------|
   E------------------------------------------------------|

At this point guitar 3 ends the solo with very subtle controlled feedback. I
didn't bother to tab it but if I remember correctly it just jumps from note
to note along the D string on the 17th, 15th and 14th frets(or around there
somewhere). If you listen in the background you should be able to hear it
but it's not really an essential part of the song.

The rest of the song goes like this:

chorus(same chord progression)-

   And when you find her tell her that you mind the way that she crosses her
heart and says I hope to die. I guess I'll never know you I guess I'll never
know why.

   (w/fill 2)

   And in the garden of blue she's coming back to you and the feeling's
true. Oh Madeline I never knew what you were going through.

        That's it. Have fun with it and write me if you have any questions.
