Here are all the tracks to Lloyd Coles most recent album, Love Story.  Enjoy


   Trigger Happy by Lloyd Cole
   From Love Story

  This one is really simple as soon as you get the fingerpicking
  pattern down, which isn't too hard.  Sometimes in the verse,
  Lloyd strums the Asus4 (or plucks it with his fingers) instead
  of doing the picking pattern.  Music theory people will notice
  the major in the verse and a turn to the minor in the chorus
  -enjoy.

   Capo on 2nd fret

  *Intro*
  Dsus2  Dsus2/C#  Dsus2/B  Asus4

  *Verse 1*
  Dsus2       Dsus2/C#  Dsus2/B
  i love your head

             Asus4             Dsus2
  i love the way you hold your head

                   Dsus2/C# Dsus2/B   Asus4
   because you're young       and you know it

  Dsus2          Dsus2/C#
   because you're young

  Dsus2/B      Asus4             Dsus2
 there ain't nothing you can't do

               Dsus2/C#  Dsus2/B
   because you know

               Asus4             Dsus2
   there ain't nothing you can't do

  Dsus2/C#  Dsus2/B  Asus4

  *Verse 2 (same as 1st)*
   i love your head
   i love the way you hold your head
   because you know
   there is no connection between old
   and what's new                    Dsus2/F  Dsus2/Bb
   and there ain't nothing you can't do

  *Chorus*


  Dsus2/C         Dsus2/G
   oh, nothing at all

          Dsus2/F           Dsus2/C
   and you know that gun is loaded,

  Dsus2/G
   sure you do.
         Dsus2/F    Dsus2/Bb
   summertime        blue
  Dsus2/C     Dsus2/G
   summertime blue
          Dsus2/F           Dsus2/C
  yes you know that gun is loaded,

  Dsus2/G
   sure you do.
              Dsus2  Dsus2/C#  Dsus2/B  Asus4
   if not for you.

  *Verse 3 and Chorus (same as verse 2 and chorus)*
   the way you walk
   i love the way you wear contempt
   for my sort.
   oh, should i give you my money?
   a steady hand,
   a little trigger happy angry? little man?
   oh, pull the trigger take it all.

   oh, you take it all
   and you know that gun is loaded,
   sure you do.
   summertime blue
   summertime blue
   and you know that gun is loaded,
   sure you do.

  *Verse 4 (same as other verse except where noted)

   i love your head
   i love the way you hold your head
   because you're young
   and you know it
   a steady hand,

           Dsus2/C (hold)
  a little trigger happy

  *repeat verse chords*
   and we'll tell you how to live,
   and we'll take away the reason,
   and we wonder why we wonder
   how you're not the way that we were.

   and we'll tell you how to live,
   and we'll take away the reason,
   and we wonder why we wonder
   how you're not the way that we were.

   and we'll tell you how to live,
   and we'll take away the reason,
   and we wonder why we wonder
   how you're not the way that we were.


  Sentimental Fool by Lloyd Cole

  A basic strum pattern - listen to the song for when to hold
  chords - especially at the end.


  Capo on the 2nd fret

  *Intro*

  D   C   G
  D           C                G
   the more i learn the less i know

  D               C             G
   could you make mine straight absolut?

  D           C               G
   the more i fail the less i try

  D           C             G
   ask not of me the reason why.


  *chorus*

  A       Em          G
   oh, my sentimental fool

        Em               A
   have i got a tale for you

          Em          G     Gmaj7  D
   oh, my sentimental fool

  *verse 2 (same as verse 1)*
   the woman i love is not content
   the life i made, it ain't what i meant
   the space i'm in is filled with love
   the state i'm in is pitiful.

  *chorus (same as first except where noted)*
   oh, my sentimental fool
   have i got a tale for you
   oh, my sentimental fool

   G            Gmaj7    Em
   have i got a tale for you

                          D
   but, when she calls my name

              G                        C
   i'm almost happy, she's almost like you

                           D
   yeah, when she calls my name

                G                             A
   we're almost there, man, she's almost like you
   she's almost like you

  *chorus chords for solo*

  *verse 3 and 4 same as other verses*
   the longer i live the less i believe
   and all i lost is all i need
   the life i made is filled with regret
   and i can't tell the half of it.

   the woman i love has lost her faith
   and i just watch as she fades away
   the space i'm in is filled with love
   the shape i'm in ain't beautiful.


  *chorus*

  A       Em          G
   oh, my sentimental fool

        Em               A
   have i got a tale for you

          Em          G
   oh, my sentimental fool

        Em               A
   have i got a tale for you

          Em          G
   oh, my sentimental fool

   G            Gmaj7     Em
   draining the glass for you


   do you see my girl?

                     D
   she's almost like you

  Em
   do you see my girl?

                     D
   she's almost like you

               Em
   almost like you
                     D    Em  D
   she's almost like you

   Love Ruins Everything


  Capo 4th fret

  This one is a little tricky to get the timing right - if you
  play along with the album it should come quickly.  If tabbed
  out the verse and prechorus as I play it and it sounds pretty
  good.  The Spanish like guitar part in front I haven't tabbed
  out, but if you mess around with it, its not hard.   I like to
  play this one with my fingers and pluck the strings instead of
  using a pick also - allows for greater control over the
  strings.

   Baby

Capo 3rd fret

*Intro*

Am  B  Em   Am
C   Em  Am

*verse 1*
 Am               B
   wasting my time

Em                 Am
   a shadow on the riverbank

C                Em             Am  Amsus2 Am
   watching my reflection go to sea

*same as first stanza*
   wind in my hair

   not where i stand


*chorus*
   Am     G             Am           G
   ba  -  by, i've been lost without you

          F                             C

             Dm     Am         Dm   Em
   long as i love my baby, i'm only lonely.

*verse 2 -same as first*
   she said not to call
   said it would be best for all concerned
   if i just all but disappear

   but she loves you best
   and i love her nonetheless
   so i just listen to the voice on the machine, singing

*chorus - same as other*
   baby, i've been lost without you
   since i don't have a place to call my home
   oh, my sweet baby, must i empty my heart?
   must i take what i can get and call it my own?
   long as i love my baby i'm  only lonely.

*bridge*
  F          Em                 Am
   maybe one day she'll call me up and say

                             F
   "god damn you your baby's crying

           Em           Am
   and i'm lonely. come home."

F                       Em                 Am
   maybe i'll find some guts someplace and drive up

                                               F
   and you'll be there playing on the porch and she'll just say

    Em              F
   "baby, where you been?"

                   Dm
   and "ain't your little man growing?"

*intro chords again*

*verse 3 - same as others*
   pay me no mind
   i'm just a shadow on the riverbank
   watching my reflection go to sea

*chorus - same*
   baby, i've been lost without you
   since i don't have a place to call my home
   oh, my sweet baby, must i empty my heart?
   must i take what i can get and make it my home?

   Unhappy Song

This song is a straight bass note strum pattern after the first
intro - the chords to the chorus are basically the same as the
verse, except played in a different position - I don't know if this
is how Lloyd does it on the record, but it sounds best to me - if
it doesn't to you, try the verse chords over the chorus - both
sound pretty close.

   well, he was turn between the romance and the mundane.
   he was torn every morning.
   he was surprised or was he horrified to find
   the mundane the more rewarding.

   it only rains when you leave it at home,
   and all the umbrellas are broke.
   oh, save yourself a fiver, you're already soaking.

   and sing me that old unhappy song.
   october, november, december,

   unhappy song.

   Traffic

I usually play this one with barred chords and concentrate on the
bass strings.

*Intro*

F#m  D  A  E
F#m  D  A  C#m
D    E  F#m  D
A    E  F#m   B  D


*verse 1*
  A                         B
   did you get all that you wanted?

 D                          A
   then did you give it all away?

 A                          B
   oh did we take it all for granted?

D                              C#m
   we'd really love for you to stay.

   yes we would.


F#m        D            A     E
   now the world is very old

F#m        D           A     C#m
   and the sky is very high

D                 E            F#m
   and we're just traffic in between

           E
   you and i

           A
   and if i knew my way

          E
   well i'd be there
               F#m
   now wouldn't i?

*bridge*

B                             C#m
   don't you know it only gets louder

                         F#m
   when you cut off your ear.

*repeat B  C#m  F#m  acouple of times, walking up the bass
from the F#m to the B - the last B  C#m  to A of next verse*

*verse 2 - same*
   do you know how good it gets?
   are revelations all you need?
   did you smash your brand new birdland?
   was it too much speed?

*chorus - same*
   now the world is very old
   and the sky is very high
   and we're just traffic in between
   you and i
   and if i knew my way
   well i'd be there
   now wouldn't i?

F#m         A
   and if i knew my way

            E
   well i'd be there

               F#m

            A

   now wouldn't i?

                F#m  (fade into "Lets Get Lost")
   now wouldn't i?

   Let's Get Lost

On this one, hit the bass note, then the rest of the chord.
Letters not capitalized represent single notes on the 6th string.
For the walk up at the end of a stanza, use the G# as the bass note
in the bass note chord pattern.  Also, for the E, the strum is much
shorter, to allow time for the walk up.  There may also be a second
guitar, playing the bass notes an octave higher to fill out the
arrangement.

  For Crying Out Loud

A good song to do with just an acoustic and the little riffs that
connect the chords are easy and can be figured out with minimum
effort - concentrate on the high E and B strings.
