Stops Tab

More Elbow Tabs

Artist: Elbow
  Song: Stops

Tabbed by: Xippo

Much like the Old Canes tab, I searched in vain for a tab for this 
song that was anywhere close to accurate. This is better than 
anything I've seen out there. When you play the chords for the 
chorus, focus on the top strings, almost like they're power chords 
rather than bar chords.

D5: xx0235
Dsus2: xx0230

Em                F#m
I can't undo the day
         C#m                    C
It won't go, wont go under the rug
Em             F#m
I pull out the stops
     C#m                C
And you, you pull the plug


          Em  F#m G   A G A                 C 
These are soberer days  and I know it can't be
         Em   F#m     G  A G A              C
But I'll miss you the way,   you miss the sea

     D      D5    Am
Just (don't look down) Keep staring like you've never seen the stars
 D     D5   Am
(don't look down) If you need me to remind you who you are
D D* Am                             Dsus2
Little blossom there's the shiniest soul
     E               Em
Just behind those eyes


No longer my affair
Well I can't go there just yet
So I've come to love and trust 
those friends that are holding your net

Falling off used to mean
Maybe grazing a knee
And I'll miss you the way you miss the sea

(Just)Don't look down
Keep staring like you've never seen the stars
If you need me to remind you who you are
Little blossom there's the shiniest soul
Just behind those ey---es

While I won't second guess
What you're thinking of me
I will miss you the way, you miss the sea.

(Just)Don't look down
Keep staring like you've never seen the stars
If you need me to remind you who you are
Little blossom there's the shiniest soul
Just behind those eyes
