                Version 1.2

Tuning: Standard
Key: A major

OK here we have the tab for Cornerstone by Arctic Monkeys, if you use this is 
conjunction with Sanjuro333's tab for Jamie's part you can play the whole song 
with 2 guitars, so go forth and learn it!

You may want to work out strumming and timing for yourself especially in the bridge and solo
where it gets a bit different. It's overall a pretty simple song from the new album.

Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)


Verse 1
I thought I saw you in the battleship
D                    Bm
but it was only a look-a-like
She was nothing but a vision trick
D              Bm
Under the warning light
F#m                 A                                   F#m
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
But my chances turned to toast
D                              Bm                         A                   (F#m   A   F#m)
When i asked her if i could call her your name

Verse 1 [cont] (Same pattern)
I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
Huddled up in a wicker chair
I wandered over for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there

She was close, and she held me very tightly
'Til I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name.

(To transition into the chorus play this; A F#m A F#m E, listen out for the strumming)

D                                          Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m                                                   D
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself
A D E (Come in with A at the end of the chorus and play these chords like in the verse)

Verse 2 (Same Pattern)
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
D                        Bm
Messing with the smoke alarm,
It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
D                     Bm
And she had a broken arm,
F#m                 A                                   F#m
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out in letra-set
D           Bm                     C#m
No, you can't call me her name

A                               C#m
Tell me where's your hiding place
A                     C#m
I'm worried I'll forget your face
And I've asked everyone
Bm                                 E                        (E6 optional here)
I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

D                                          Bm
And I elongated my lift home,
F#m                                                   D
Yeah, I let him go the long way 'round
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

A D Bm x2 (Play this like you would in the verse)
F#m Bm

Verse 3
I saw your sister in the cornerstone
D                             Bm
On the phone to the middle man
When I saw that she was on her own
D                             Bm
I thought she might understand
F#m                              A
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
F#m             A                                       D
She said i'm really not supposed to but yes,
                              Bm                   A
You can call me anything you want.

Fade out.
