Patience of Angels (Boo Hewerdine)
----------------------------------

Written & performed by Boo Hewerdine, but I don't know of a recording of it by
him.  Eddi Reader has recorded it, it's on her first album (called Eddi
Reader!)


            G               D                 C                   D 
   From the top  of the     bus           she thought she saw him wave
    she saw Tuesdays and forgetfulness and a  little    money     saved
Does she know ?    I don't know     but from  here    I   can     tell

[Chorus]:
              G       D                   C           D    
That it would try        the patience of angels 
     it would try        the patience of angels


            G               D                C                   D 
   And you know something's wrong  when the  morning hurts your eyes 
   you'll be waiting 'til  you  die
    Would I be   any   good       and if I   was   would   I    find

[Chorus]

            G         D                C          D 
 There's a door in  a wall  in a       house in a street 
               she's the patience of 
           angels 


[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/h/hewerdine_boo/patience_of_angels_crd.html ]
            G            D                 C          D 
Does she   know? I don't know    but from  here I can tell
 There's a door in a     wall  in      a   house in a street 
               she's the patience 
        of angels



Strumming is: 

     |x-----------------x-x------x--------x--------x--------|      = 1 bar
beats 1        2        3        4        5        6        

6 beats per bar, one chord per bar. Play the 6th beat as the top 4 strings
open (DGBe = ?Gadd6) in every bar. (This sounds right and it gives you ages to
make the chord change!)

Suggest picking out the lines marked < x > by singing them an octave higher
than the rest. 

Chords are standard (open) fingerings.

This G D C D stuff is a bit of an oversimplification. Live, there seems to be
some melody going on on the top two strings, but I haven't worked out what
he's doing. Still, this should be enough to carry the tune in the
Underground/Subway!

Boo plays this live in Db (capo at 6th fret), Eddi Reader's album version is
in Bb (capo 3), I can't get above B (Capo 4) if I'm going to hit the next
octave in the vocal- just play it in as high a key as you can. 

Also, if it's quiet you can try an arpeggio intro: 

      E ----------3------------------2----------------0---------------2-----
||
      B ------------3--------------2---3----------------1-----------2---3---
||
      G
--------------4----------3-------2----------0-----0-------3-------2-.||
      D
--------5-----------0---------------------2-----------0-------------.||
      A ------5-------------------------------3-----------------------------
|| 
      E -3------------------------------------------------------------------
|| 
         G(barre 3)         D                 C               D
