The Fat Lady Sings - Providence.

This is a great song from a great Irish band from their album 'john son'.

Here's the way I play this song, I'm not certain of it's correctness 
but it's pretty close.

Belows is a chord that I use for the above pattern.
the numbers in the chord diagram represent your fingers NOT the frets, 
the chord is basically a Csus.
Frets are denotes by | 
  v   v   v   v
e-|---|---|-4-|-
B-|-1-|---|---|-
G-|---|---|---|-
D-|---|-2-|-3-|-  with your 2nd & 3rd fingers here you can 
A-|---|---|---|-  perform the hammer-on described above.
E-|---|---|---|-
Just play around with this chord and the picking above and you should 
work it out easily.


Pick the above tab for each verse of the song.

LYRICS:

where were you when my dreams came true and my ship finally came in.
I was flying head in the clouds and you were back in providence.

i crawled out of my ark of doubt stepped up to claim my prize.
a fingerprint in the mantlepiece painta letter of just three lines.

i played hard i played hard to get and hard to understand
and every night was a fight to the death and every day was planned.

where were you when i finally new the truth that you'd always known.
no matter how far you travel away you always end uo home.

where was this place when i finally fell to grace and found you'd faded out.

now all the rain that's fallen on me the sun that's worn me down.
but i'm still waking in these same old pair of shoes i'm walking on 
the same old ground.

oh yes i know nobody chooses anybody and no one means to lie.
but when the weather changes you turn into strangers learning how to say 
goodbye.

i'm writing from this town where i let you down once too often.
but i'm thinking of that other lucky place.
