My sources tell me it was recorded for BBC Hull (joy) on May 5th 2005.
The chords i had there seemed to fit.
BBC Hull version = the best version of ATRH. True.

Word up Frank. Any chance of chording/tabbing out Father's Day? One of the best songs I've heard in years, fact.

the answer to all tab queries is, as ever, that when i have the time i will be happy to get the lot done, but it's quite a dull way of spending your time and i'm currently pretty busy elsewhere. i can tell you it's in D but with a capo on the 3rd fret (thus F).

i can also tell you that we finished the vocals for that song today and it's going to be fucking ACE.

I'm particularly looking forward to hearing that one. A really great song.

How can you not like a song that has the lyric 'suspicious fashion decisions' in it?

With the capo on 3, the basic chords sound like Em, G, D, A on the intro and "When you got home..." bit, Em, G, A on the "You and I..." bit, and D, A, Em, G on the verse/chorus.


I think the Ds and As are actually mostly Dsus4s and Asus2s.

Is surely as follows? Except I'm not sure about the end of the first two lines in the chorus...

Code: Select all


G* = this riff...

|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|

|-2-0-2-3-0-0-0-3-2-0-2-2--|

         G*                    G*             C          D     G*
From the heart of the Southern Downs, to the North-East London reservoirs,
         G*                         G*                C    D       G*
From the start, the land scaped my sound, before I'd ever been to America.


       C          D          [don't know this bit]
And if I knew anybody who played pedal steel guitar,
     C              D          [don't know this bit]
I'd get them in my band and then my band would get real far,
           C               D                   B7              Em
But I was raised in middle England, and not in Nashville Tennessee,
         C          D             G*
And the only person in my band is me.


A simple scale on an old guitar, and a punk rock sense of honesty.
I cannot fail, I've got this far with no knowledge of mid-west geography.


And if I knew anywhere where I could drive in a straight line
For hours in the desert, I'd drive for hours at a time.
But I was raised in middle England, not in Nashville Tennessee,
And the only person in this car is me.


Am                C         G                   D           Am
   And yes I'm in four-four time, and yes I use cheap cheap rhymes,
                    C        G*
But I try to make a sound my own.
Am                 C        G                 D              Am
   I know I don't break new ground, many have travelled this sound,
                     C          G*
But I try to make it sound like home.

           G  [hold]                     G [hold]
Well I've been to Texas state, I didn't think it was that fucking great,
And Nebraska is just a bunch of songs,
Holloway and Hampshire where I belong.
And I don't know anybody who plays pedal steel guitar,
All the city roads are twisted and I do not own a car.
I was raised in middle England, not in Nashville Tennessee,
And the only thing I'm offering is me.

[the bit above after the two Gs is the same as 'if i knew...' etc]

This means nothing to me, as im a drummer. I hit things with sticks.

Frank totally inspired me to pick up guitar and try and learn it again...i failed, so stole my brothers bass.

Less strings, less confusion. Haha.

(i'm failing at bass too haha.

Yo, does anyone know the chords for Vatican Broadside? I can't figure it out from the youtube vid.

I don't think he actually plays it exactly like that Nick, but that would be the song HMHB based it on, yes. :)

I'm working on Ballad Of Me And My Friends, but I'm quite far off, several of the chords are wrong, methinks... The bit in italic sounds wrong... It might be C->C/B or it might be the same thing as he does in the verse (see below) but without putting the finger back on?
Can anyone correct me?

(CAPO 2)
VERSE
Em C G D
BRIDGE
G C Em C D
PRE CHORUS
D Em C
CHORUS
C G D G C Em D
C G D G C G

NOTE:
For some of the Cs Frank takes off the first finger then puts it back on (C->B->C) , and some of the Ds he adds the little finger on above the second and takes it back off (F#->G->F#) - this is mainly in the first part, and he also does something with the Em but I'm not sure what.

I think the bit you don't know is G, D, C. Try it, it sounds right.
