Take Your Carriage Clock And Shove It Chords

   
Intro: F#  C#  F#  C#  F#  C#  G#

C#                                G#                         F#                                   C#
In the boardroom the quiet man takes a second to think what to do;

         F#                                  C#                                    G#
He's out of his seat and he's starting to speak and he hears his own voice;

C# 		            G#                                           F#			C#
For years and years he's done nothing but bear down, and put up with all their demands;

        F#                           C#		G#
She sits like a viper and offers a clock without giving a damn...He takes it;

C#		        G#			  F#			C#
"Honour forbids me, but honour be damned, you have wined till you got what you want;

F#		          C#			G#
I did the work and when things were going badly you left us to rot";


Bridge: F#    C#      F#      C#      F#     C#     G#, etc.

C# 		       G#			     F#			C#
He locked the door of the boardroom and turned, like the scene from the old country song;
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/belle_and_sebastian/take_your_carriage_clock_and_shove_it_crd.html ]
F#	             C#	            G#
Towering over the table he is lost; he is drunk with it all:

	C#                                         G#			  F#		              C#
"You only came back to us when we'd turned it around, when we'd rescued your arse from the fire;

F#		C#                            G#
Your contribution to all that we did is to say it was dire"

Bridge 2:  F#    C#      F#      C#      F#     C#     G#, etc.

C# (one strum)	G#(ibid.)		   F#(ibid.)	          C#(ibid).
"Night after day after night I've been working, despite of you fucking us all;

F#(ibid.)		              C#(ibid)			G#(ibid.)
Now I'm going to die, I don't care if you cry, just please leave me alone;

                             C#			G#			F#			C#
And spare those tears for yourself, we've had those 'till we're sick, you should leave while you still 
the chance";

      F#			C#                                F#		C#
The others were shocked at this shameful display at the end of an hounoured career;

       F#    		          C# 		         G#
He paused in the silence to pull down his tie and observe the melee.

Given that these are all sharp chords, they can be played barre style, or open on capo one; whichever 
better to your ear.
