                Wonderful new song from the Guillemots! Mind you, I defy you to make it sound good 
on a single instrument - the song is deceptively simple :p 

Same four chords all the way through: 
(original key Bm Fm A E, starting note F#)

I've tabbed at the place it best suits my female singing voice (Gm Dm F C). The 
jury is out as to whether Fyfe is singing "hunted" or "haunted". 

==WALK THE RIVER==


No Chord (starting note D; if you need a chord it's Dm)

Fell in love with a boy
Grew tired of it
Fell in love with the world
Yearned to fly from it
Fell in love with myself
Get off for the breeze
Well get off for the weather

Verse 1: just bass

Gm                      Dm 
Walking slowly through space

 F           C
Pleased and terrified

Gm                      Dm 
Backing out of the race

 F           C
Extra edified

Gm                      Dm 
I want my sentences back

 F           C        Gm
Can't remember their faces

(Instr line): Dm

F        C            Gm
Can't remember their faces

CHORUS:

Gm                Dm
And I'm still here

F                 C             [and so on, same four chords]
Holding on, and nothing, man

Gm                Dm
Stand on my life
F                 C
Rewriting my delivery
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal

(Gm Dm F C x2)

VERSE 2: twinkly

Everything was the life
The summer holidays
Christmastime in the drive
Always out of rain
Sit down and fall on a star
Did someone mention the weather
Did someone mention the weather

CHORUS 2: add second voice harmony

And I'm still here
Holding on to nothing, man
Stand on my life
Here is my delivery
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal

(Instrument break tune [original key]):
F# C# Eb B. F# C# Eb B Eb F# F F# Ab A
(not sure of the chords here. Please submit if you are :)


Gm                       Dm
It's an endless conversation
          F         C
With an endless voice, 
over endless fascination
Over endless choice, 
and my heart's going out of missions
on imagined motorways
I never said I was right, 
I just hoped you thought it anyway

Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
Like a haunted animal
Walk the river
You haunted animal
Walk the river
We have lost all animals

(repeat chords to out...)

(original key Bm Fm A E, starting note F#)
