Ive Changed My Plea To Guilty Chords

   
(tabbed by James Purdy. This is my first tab so send comments, corrections, or hate mail
to alabaster21m@yahoo.com. This is a song I always wanted to learn but never found the
chords or was able to translate the original version on piano by Morrissey.  However I
was able to translate an almost identical (Chord wise) acoustic version by Colin Meloy
on "Colin Meloy Sings Morrissey." I found help with lyrics from "It May All End Tomorrow"
at http:/www.compsac.man.ac.uk/~moz/  Help with defining chords at

Morrissey
I've Changed My Plea to Guilty
from Viva Hate (UK) and My early Burglary Years

Intro:

C/E  G6  Am/E  Gb  G6  (2X)

Verse 1:

C/E                    G6     Am/E               Gb         G6
   I'm standing in the dock.    With my innocent hand on my heart.

F     G6         C/E  C7/E              F          G6      C     C7/E
 I've changed my plea.             I've changed my plea to guilty.

        F          E         Am/E   F            Gb              G6
Because freedom is wasted on me.    See how your rules spoil the game?

Verse 2:

C/E                       G6  Am/E        Gb        G6              C/E
   Outside there is a pain.     Emotional air raids exhausted my heart,
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/morrissey/ive_changed_my_plea_to_guilty_crd.html ]
         G6            Am/E  Gb  G6        F         G6         C/E  C7/E
and it's safer to be inside.                So, I'm changing my plea,

F          G6           C/E  C7/E           F           E         Am/E
 and no one can dissuade me.        Because freedom was wasted on me.

F            Gb              G6
See how your rules spoil the game?

Verse 3:

C/E                 G6      Am/E            Gb           G6   
   Something I have learned,    if there is one thing in life I've observed,

C/E          G6              Am/E    Gb  G6         F   G6      C/E  C7/E
   it's that everybody's got somebody.              Ooh no, not me.

F                   G6      C/E   C7/E        F          E            Am/E
 So I've changed my plea to guilty.       And reason and freedom is a waste.

       F    Gb  G6       C/E
It's a lot like life.
