Ukulele Tab - Blood On My Hands (The Sundays)

As promised, here's the Blood On My Hands tab as I played it on the uploaded clip.

chords: g d cmaj7 b fmaj7 a c
verse: g d cmaj7 / b
chorus: g fmaj7 cmaj7 b bm
bridge: …c a c f
last verse outro: b d c fmaj7->g

G         D              Cmaj7
When people say it's sad,you know it can't be bad
and on any other day I'd be soul destroyed but now I can't afford to listen to a word they say, no.
And of all the times we had, oh, the ultimate late night, didn't taste right...true words that I should know.
Blood on my hands, cause when you looked around I couldn't be found. A crime's a crime, I’ll have to pay.
Now I find that I'm thigh deep, too young for the worst of my mind,
you whispered behind me, "if I may make so bold."
Call it young and wild but I ran a mile in a minute...and there's no going back. True words that I should know.
Blood on my hands, when you looked around I couldn't be found. A crime's a crime, I’ll have to pay.
True words I said to myself as the wind chilled my bones. "Home alone, you call that a late night?"
When people say you're dead, you know you caught their eye
and on any other day I'd be soul destroyed but that's just not the way now.
I don't mind telling you nothing is quite what it seems, so.
True words that I should know.
Must have been blood on my hands,I look forward to weigh the fireless day
A crime's a crime but I don't mind, true words that I should know well
but surely by now I could say to myself,
"the days are getting longer so I better get stronger fast"...surely by now?

It takes me a fair amount of work to both tab out a song and figure out an arrangement that sounds decent on the uke. If you like what you see, please consider buying a "Thank You!" here via Paypal. The tabs are free, but I definitely appreciate the support.Thank you!



How Much Do I Thank You?
 

Blood On My Hands (The Sundays)

One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite albums from one of my favorite bands. Much easier to play than to sing : D

Ukulele Tab - Passionate Introverts [Dinosaurs] (A Sunny Day in Glasgow)

As promised, here's the Passionate Introverts [Dinosaurs] tab as I played it on the uploaded clip.

This is a loose interpretation of the lyrics...

intro: d or dmaj7 / gmaj7
verse: gmaj7 a d bm / gmaj7 a d bm
chorus / whispers: d / gmaj7
bridge: d bm gmaj7


sad sad sad song
with eskimos [noise] in heaven come at least for a [long] while
we thread a million diamonds in the ground
do you believe in second chances?
do you believe in talking backwards?
do you believe in dinosaurs at all?

make sure to stay calm (x4)

when all is lost
and every other option draws more blood i know
when all is lost
and everything you had just goes away

is this the first time you are listening?
is this the first time i will tell you?
do you believe in dinosaurs at all?

tell me in whispers that you need this too
tell all your shivers that you want me too
(x2)

look at life like dinosaurs
prefer, dominate me
i saw you last night, and it was dreams, and it was meaning
