                As always, Cardiacs song structure is generally mindbending and really difficult 
to tab up or chord-up as i have tried here. I am pretty sure what i have done is 
accurate, but the piece with the little girl singing " I will tear the secret..." 
etc might not be 100% but seems to fit quite well.
Please, if you find out the exact chords for this, update this as you wish :)

I tried my best to sit the chord changes exactly over the part of the word that 
Tim sings at that moment, to help, but sometimes the webpage will re-arrange 
everything and sit chords willy-nilly over the top of the text, so i hope it's as i wrote !

The chords at the end of each verse, sound better if used as a part-chord 
shape, as it were. G(E3,A2,D0) - G/F#(E2,A2,D0) - E(E0,A2,D2,G1)

Have fun, should be easy to play through this one :)
