                "Now They'll Sleep", Belly
Written by T. Gorman and T. Donelly


*** Ok...here is probably my last revision...i ended transcribing the lead
    myself...i got very very bored this summer :> (DK)

Standard Tuning
4/4 time (funny little two-step dance optional)

Key: % : repeat measure
     - : minor chord                
     / : a rest
     | : two of them delimit a measure
     ~ : vibrato

* The song is based on straight-eighths with a few variations.  Each line
  of lyrics is four measures.
* Tom's part is straight off the key of C <well...dah!> The fills may not
  match exactly, but anyone should be able to time them right.

<this intro is very Beatle-esque!>
Intro:

<Guitar One : Tom>
( He's holding an A minor with his thumb around the bass strings )
   Am        G/Am      F#/Am F/Am

B------1---------1---------1---------1--------
G--------2---------2-------------------2------  <play 3x> then G chord
D----2---------2---------2---------2----------

Fills:
