			   Night Time - The xx
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tuning: Standard

This was a surprisingly tricky song to work out. Took much longer than I thought it would.
Some notes sound a bit off but if you listen very closely you can hear they're right.
For the pre-chorus and verse the timing's a bit dodgy so listen closely to get it right,
as it's hard to show timing in regular tab.

Intro:

G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|-5-5-5~--5\4-4-4~---4/9-9-9~--9-9-9-9~-|
E|---------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|\5-5-5~--5\4-4-4~---4/9~---------------|
E|---------------------------------------|

Verse (listen for timing):

G|---------|
D|---------|
A|-5-------| x2
E|---------|

G|---------|
D|-7-------|
A|---------|
E|---------|

G|----------------------6~--------|
D|-------7------4-----4-----4-----|
A|-12/-5------4---7---------------|
E|----------5-------5-------------|

Verse 2:

G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5---//9----5---//9----12----14----12-12-12-12-14-14-14----|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

Pre-Chorus

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------4-4-44-4-4-4-4-4--/7-7-77-7-7/9-9-9-9---------|
A|-9\--5-5-5-55--4-4-4-444-4-4-----------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus 2 same as before.

Verse 2 (comes in on 5th bar): 

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-9\-5-5--5-55-5-4-4--4-44-4-/9-9--9-99-9-9-9--9-99-9-----------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7-7--7-77-7-7-7--7-77-7--9-9--9-99-9--9-9--9-99-9-------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| x2
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then Pre-chorus and chorus.

Chorus ends like this:

G|----------------------6~----6--4------------|
D|-------7------4-----4-------------7--6------|
A|-12/-5------4---7----------------------4----|
E|----------5-------5-------------------------|

End.
