The Snitches – Swallow (Guitar Tab)
Photo credit: Chart.
This is a really great song by Montreal band, The Snitches. It’s an electric guitar song on record, but I tabbed it out a few years ago to play on my acoustic.
The Snitches Swallow *NOTE* This is NOT the way they play it. This is a version i made for acoustic guitar. The chords are all correct, so if you want, just take off the capo, add a step per chord (eg. E=F#). CAPO II E Oh baby listen Don't you worry A I getting better Clean up in a hurry E I learn to swallow Oh swallow A All the things Put off to tommorrow E I'll deal with Frankie I'll go with Johnny A You stay here cause I won't be gone long E Frankie's worth millions Know it for sure yeah A Just get a little By keep working hard babe E Singled out buckshot, waiting for the man A He was cold he was still he was wide-open mouth E Everybody thought he was money in the making A He was gold, he was steel, heading west with his hands on the wheel E Call him what you will A He calls it plan E Same it's always A Let's see if it stands G D E Don't rely on thinking it over G D E We're gonna fly but we gotta leave now G What's your name? D Think about A What you want E Write it down G One by one D I was old A You were young E So carry on A So carry on E Things are a bit out there Don't need nothing but A Babe you look angel And I know I seem scary E Out on the South Shore They got a house now A They're getting organized Think we should head out E Oh baby listen Don't you worry A I getting better Clean up in a hurry E I learn to swallow Oh swallow A All the things Put off to tommorrow E A Tabbed by Matthew Gruman http://matthewgruman.com
These are the correct lyrics. I posted this on the ‘net a few years ago and the lead singer/songwriter, Mike Webber, found it and sent me the correct lyrics.
From Mike Webber:
The other thing is when you go from the E to the A throw in a quick D and same when going back from the A to the E. The D would be, for example, between “worry & I getting better…” in the first couple of lines, then again going back between Hurry & I learn. It fills out the melody.
I played it in F# but in fact it works better the way you do it!
