Indeed my good lad/lass (cant be bothered to check), it didn't occur to me to look on youtube, but that does appear to be it! Also, he does a little pull-off during the C in that bit. The rest is right, yeah?

Since I'm a charitable person with no life, I'm in on new year's eve tabbing out more songs, here's another - hope you like, I love this song.

Code: Select all

VERSE:
    G                              D
The countryside is dying, they're closing village stores, 
       C                                        G                    D
while shepherds watch their flocks by night the government burn them all, 
    Am                              C         D        G
and here's another post office with boards across the door.


VERSE
The rich folk came from London, to breath the cleaner air, 
they listen to the Archers, buy new BARBER?s, grow their hair, 
and they buy up all the houses, so country people born and bred can't afford to live there.


VERSE
Now the Countryside Alliance, we'll call them the cunts for short,
promised in defiance that a battle would be fought, 
then they ignored the real issues and just shout about their bloody sport.


            C                            G                 D
And you can call it a betrayal, well it looks like that to me,
         C                            G                D
you can call it bad behaviour, or a waste of time and money, 
          C                          G          D
and I've never been in favour of police brutality,
              Am                              C        D       G
but when the huntsman comes a-marching, yeah give him one for me, 
          C       D       G
officer, give him one for me


VERSE
Now the cunts have come to London, to show us all what-for,
There were only twenty thousand of them marching down old Whitehall,
But they were such a bunch of thugs the police arrested more,
than when two million normal people marched against the war.


REPEAT CHORUS


               Em            C                 G               D
And where were you when the miners fought to save their livelihoods?
               Em                C                G               D
Well you were dressed up in red velvet somewhere deep inside the woods.
         Em                C                 G                  D
And you loved the fucking poll tax, and you propped up Maggie Thatcher,
         Am                                            C         D         G
And you didn't give a fuck about Tony Blair until he threw your hobby back at ya


VERSE
Now the countryside is dying, some say it's already dead,
and the huntsman's got a boner as the dogs rip the fox to shreds,
and he smears the blood on his daughter's face, and he drags her back to bed


REPEAT CHORUS
And the little run up and down the fret board is something like this, I think... (cant be bothered to tab, so will just list the notes in order). The bit in [square brackets] is the fast bit at the end, and the 'p's indicate pull offs]

G-A-B-C-D-[CpBpA-G]

Yeah, sounds it. Maybe the voicing is a bit different at the "not in Nashville Tenessee" bit, I'll check in a bit but it's probably right. Well done! And thanks for the tab and also the "Huntsman..." tab :)

You're welcome.
What about Sunshine State? After one listen I've got this-

VERSE
C* G Am** F
CHORUS
Dm G G7
C G Am F (all without the hammering I believe)
BRIDGE
F Em7?

*Hammering on the E octave
**Hammering on the E and A octaves
Not too sure about the Em7, it might be an normal Em or something... :?

PS: Just corrected a typo in Huntsman

This song has the top (high) E tuned up to F# (takes a bit of bravery if you have thicker strings). As Mr Lettuce says, the first chord is B5 (B 'power chord), but also play the B and top E strings open. I'll post the rest when I get time.

EDIT: I should say that Frank sould get the credit for this: 1. He told me this was the tuning and 2. er...He wrote the song
