Jack The Ripper
	(Morrissey/Boz Boorer)

I'm taking this song off of the "World of Morrissey" CD, which means I'm
transcribing a live version of this song.  It's a pretty neat song indeed in
my humble opinion.

Before I do anything, the guitar for the chorus section (the "crash into my
arms" part) is:

  A             E                 D            E                 A

E ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
B -6~---6--7-9-6~-|--6-6-6--7-9--6~-|--6--7-9-6~--|-9-9-9--7--6----|
G ----------------|-----------------|-------------|-------------7~-|
D ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
A ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
E ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|

  A             E                 D            E           F5  F#m

E ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
B -6~---6--7-9-6~-|--6-6-6--7-9--6~-|--6--7-9-6~--|-9-9-9--10--11--|
G ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
D ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
A ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|
E ----------------|-----------------|-------------|----------------|


The other important part that is featured in this song is that eerie guitar
part which starts from a high-pitched note down (you know what I mean).  I
believe it's just (on the high E string):

E -18-18-17--/////(all the way down to the second fret)///----|

The lyrics and chords for the song is as follows:

Intro:  F#m       D    Bm  (4x)

F#m              D   Bm
Oh, you look so tired
F#m                  D   Bm
Mouth is slack and wide
  F#m                D   Bm
Ill-housed and ill-advised
     F#m                      D         Bm       A
Your face is as mean as your life has been

        E        D
Crash into my arms
  E         A
I want you
             E                   D
You don't agree but you don't refuse
         E - F5
I know you

F#m          D    Bm
And I know a place
      F#m                  D   Bm
Where no one is likely to pass
    F#m                         D   Bm
Oh, you don't care if it's late
    F#m                           D   Bm
And you don't care if you're lost
     F#m               D  Bm
And, oh, you look so tired
      F#m                      D   Bm
But tonight you presume too much
     F#m        D   Bm
Too much, too much
                F#m
And if it's the last thing I ever do
D         Bm         A
I'm gonna get you

        E     D
Crash into my arms
  E           A
I want you
             E                   D
You don't agree but you don't refuse
         E - F5
I know you

Break:  F#m

        F#m       D    Bm  (4x)
        A         E         D        E  (2x)<-- played with chorus riff

A       E      D
Crash into my arms
   D        A
I want you
           E
You don't agree
                    D
'Cause you don't refuse
          E
I know you


End on F#m

Note that the chorus starts on the A chord.  The A chord appears on the last
line in the verse of my transcription because Morrissey sings a second and a
half after the chord is played.  Blah blah blah.  Just something I that I
thought would confuse you.  Bye-bye...
