Somethings Gotten Hold Of My Heart Tabs

(ver. 1)
Cave Nick
            Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
       Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart
     From "Kicking Against the Pricks" (1985)
   Paul McMullan 
    Original version by Gene Pitney, ca. 1967
                   Also done by
       Marc Almond (& Gene Pitney), ca. 1987

(NOTE: These chords are really for Gene Pitney's original; Cave does it in
a lower key, but I haven't bothered to check out which.  - Trond.)

C G Em D

(Gm)Something's gotten hold of my (F)heart
Keeping my (Eb)soul and my (D7)senses a(Gm)part
Something's gotten into my (F)life
Cutting it's (Eb)way through my (D7)dreams like a (Gm)knife
(F)Turning me (Eb)up, and (D7)turning me (Gm)down
(F)Making me (Eb)smile, and (D7)making me (Gm)frown

(Gm)In a world that was (F)small
I once lived in a (Bb7)time that was (Eb)peace and no (D7)troubles at (Gm)al=
But then you came my (F)way
And a feeling (of) un(Gm)known shook my (F)heart,
made me (C7)want you to (F)stay
(C7)All of my (F)nights, and (C7)all of my (Eb)days

(D7) (yeah I gotta tell you now)
(Gm)Something's gotten hold of my (F)hand
Dragging my (Eb)soul to a (D7)beautiful (Gm)land
Yeah, something has invaded my (F)night
Painting my (Eb)sleep with a (D7)colour so (Gm)bright
(F)Changing the (Eb)grey, and (D7)changing the (Gm)blue
(F)Scarlet for (Eb)me, and (D7)scarlet for (G)you

(C) (G) (Em) (A)
I (A7)got to know if this is the real thing
I (A9)got to know it's making my heart sing
Wo-hoo-(D)o-ye-e-e-e-e e-(D9)
You (D7)smile and I am lost for a lifetime
Each (D9)minute spent with you is the (D7)right time
Every hour, every day
You touch me and my mind goes astray, yeah
Baby, baby

(Gm)Something's gotten hold of my (F)hand
Dragging my (Eb)soul to a (D7)beautiful (Gm)land
Something has invaded my (F)night
Painting my (Eb)sleep with a (D7)colour so (Gm)bright
(F)Changing the (Eb)grey, and (D7)changing the (Gm)blue
=46)Scarlet for (Eb)me, and (D7)scarlet for (Gm)you


(* Play the Bb7 as a barre chord on the 6th fret to make it sound right,
i.e. 686766.   - Trond.)

Comments from: Paul McMullan :

The position of the chords is about right I think. In many cases they
should be played on the start of the word that follows the chord. For
example, (F)scarlet ... means the F is played on the s. My positioning of
the chords isn't exactly the same as the sheet music - it doesn't always
correspond to where the guitar chord has been placed. But it does agree
with the chord (or note) in the piano notation.
