‘Ocean Spray’ - The Chords – By Manic Street Preachers. (From the album ‘Know your enemy.’)
Word and Lyrics – James Dean Bradfield.
Hi, this is my first tab on here but I have a few more up my sleeve for a later date. Can people start to do better Manic Street Preachers Tabs please, as the general standard is pretty poor. This is just the chords for the song, there is some twiddley bits, but I cannot be bothered to work them out. Anyway on with the song….
(This Tab is dedicated to Andrew and Ruth)
Em – D/A
Em Am D G
Its easy to see, its easy to see to see only white where colour should be
Its easy to feel, its easy to feel but its not good enough even though its real
Bm Am D G
Oh please stay away and then we can drink some ocean spray
Oh please stay awake and then we can drink some ocean spray
G#m F G (all barre Chords)
Second verse same chords as first.
Its easy to breathe its easy to breathe
To breathe only air where life should be
Its easy to laugh its easy to cry
To cry so so hard that it can’t be denied
Verse chords (on the album a trumpet plays over this.)
That’s it. Listen to the song and it should all drop into place easily. I’m not sure if I have named the chords by their proper name but the chord guide I’ve written is correct. I can never remember the name of chords! But there you go.
