"...Ghost comes to visit.." etc., until the instrumental bit (below):

Listen to the song to get the rhythm of this bit.  The key is to get a
constant chunk-chunk-chunk rhythm going while playing the notes tabbed.  Where
I've got those Xs marked, just mute the strings and hit them.

Then there is the preamble to the chorus (which, as it happens, doesn't appear
to feature in the version Jeff played at the Mercury Lounge New Year's Eve gig
in 1995, except prior to the final chorus):

D----2>4--7-7--4>2-2-----2>4--7---7>11-11-11--7>9-9-9-9--|

(In my peculiar notation, > means slide.)

In the version I have of Jeff playing this with the full band (Selinas,
Sydney, February 1996), he skips the doodling around at fret 11 and just
slides from fret 7 to 9, hits it about a dozen times and moves right into the
chorus.

"....fate is going to find..... a glass of champagne"


*Middle 8 thingie (in the Selinas version, this comes just prior to the
"sweat falls down" verse).

This is very very approximate, but it's enough to be getting on with!




Bm7                                                F#m  E7
ghost calls to visit with my keys in his pocket
Bm7                                                          F#m  E7
kisses in my mouth with his eyes hanging out of his sockets
Bm7                                            F#m  E7
my memories crumble under still resistance
Bm7                                                  F#m  E7
i was torn out like pages from the book of existence

F#m  Em                           F#m
     i woke up in a strange place
D                                        F#m
my mind a blur and some blood on my chin
Em                                 F#m
i made a call for a blackened cab
D                                 F#m
some destination was moving on in
Bm              F#m
i remember the words that you told me,
          G#m                        F#m
how they come down so hard, so plain
Em                                              Bm7
fate is going to find your love in a glass of champagne
