Amateur Night Tab

More Damien Jurado Tabs

Artist: Damien Jurado
 Album: Where Shall You Take Me?
  Song: Amateur Night

Tabbed by: Tim Prizer (

Standard Tuning, no capo

Strum this one with your thumb and concentrate heavily
on the bass notes (4th, 5th, and 6th strings)

Cadd9: 0-3-2-0-3-0

On the Cadd9's that start most of the lines in this song, Damien hammers the
fourth string on the second fret on the first strum. He then hammers for the
D chords on the third string on the second fret on the first strum as well.
I will indicate these two hammers with a *.

[Cadd9*] First came the [D*] screams [G] and blood on the [Cadd9] floor
[Cadd9*] The alco[D*]hol and [G] magazines
[Cadd9*] In my flash[D*]light [G] you're a [Cadd9] star
[Cadd9*] Razor [D*]blade that [G] cuts you clean

[Cadd9*] Smile for the [D*] camera
[G] Take off that [Cadd9] dress
[Cadd9*] Twenty [D*] dollars for a [G] kiss

[Cadd9*] It's me who [D*] made you
[G] It's me who will [Cadd9] take you
[Cadd9*] [D*] [G]

[Cadd9*] I am [D*] not [G] an evil [Cadd9] man
[Cadd9*] I just have a [D*] habit I can't [G] kick
[Cadd9*] It starts with an [D*] urge [G] and ends with [Cadd9] this
[Cadd9*] Hang up the [D*] phone, [G] I ain't finished yet

[Cadd9*] [D*] [G] [Cadd9]
[Cadd9*] [D*] [G]
