E.M.P.T.Y. Tab

More The Clientele Tabs

Artist: The Clientele
 Album: Strange Geometry
  Song: E.M.P.T.Y.

Tabbed by: Jimbob - jimbobriley@gmail.com

As with the other Clientele tabs, you need to add a few 
embellishments due to the picking. On the normal E chord during 
the chorus Alistair seems to use his little finger on the high 
E string to pick out the 4th and 2nd frets.

The E* means play with the 7th fret barre version of the chord. 
Also use your little finger here in the chorus to pick out some 
of those high notes further up the neck. The B(sus4) chord 
means alternate between B and Bsus4 (fairly obvious in the 
track).

| B	| E	| A	| E	| x2

B        E      A       E
When I'm riding home at night now
B     E     A     E
I get in so tired
B      E        A         E
To the saws and bows that spell out
B   E   A   E
E-M-P-T-Y

----------

B      E*     F#   
But driving west now
E*         B
Half-past five
   E*      F#
My skin is cut
   E*        B
My hands are knives
        E* F# E*   B    
I could be anyone alive
    E      A     E
But I just can't fit
    B        E       A     E
And it's too late to quit

----------

Chorus:
E*                 B(sus4)
When the night air comes to me
                E
I wonder if the days I've lived through count
E*                           B(sus4)
With the world strung like a rosary
                     E
Through faces moving in the crowd

----------

A           E             B(sus4)
What is the color and the number
               E
When happiness begins?
A        E                   B(sus4)
When the knight waits in the laurels
         F#(low)   E
Hesitating...

----------

| C#	|

	  B                       
I found a clarity I've never known
   E				   A        E
In fag-end weeks before I left for school
    C#          
The darkness in the pylons
        B
And the smoke and creosote
E              A             E
Cancelling the faces that we knew

| B	| E	| A	| E	| x2

Solo:
| E	| (freak out on the E chord)

----------

    B       E*      F#      E*        B
Did they forget the light inside your eyes?
      E*     F#           E*      B
Those simple words, those lovers' signs?
    E*      F#         E*        B
The hand is dealt, the cards are played
    E       A         E
But I just can't fit
    B        E       A     E
And it's too late to quit

----------

Chorus:
E*                B(sus4)
I saw them, and I knew them all
                  E
Inside a sheet of flame
E*                B(sus4)
I saw them, and I knew them all
                  E
Inside a sheet of flame

----------

B        E      A       E
When I'm riding home at night now
B     E     A      E
I get in so tired
B      E        A         E        
To the saws and bows that spell out
B   E   A   E
E-M-P-T-Y
E-M-P-T-Y
