Word Gets Around Part One Tab

   
Album: Word Gets Around (Part 1)
Artists:Stereophonics
Tabbed by: Sian Clarke

I couldn't fit all twelve songs onto the same file, so I'm afraid it's split into two parts
(Part 1) and (Part 2), the second half of this file should be underneath the place you
found this first one :')

Songs in this part:  1. A Thousand Trees
                     2. Looks Like Chaplin
                     3. More Life in a Tramps vest
                     4. Local Boy In the Photograph
                     5. Traffic
                     6. Not Up To You

Songs in part two:   7. Check My Eyelids For Holes
                     8. Same Size Feet
                     9. Last Of The Big Time Drinkers
                    10. Goldfish Bowl
                    11. Too Many Sandwiches
                    12. Billy Daveys' Daughter

There, hope thats not too confusing, now I'll get on with it.

I've listed all the chords and riffs used under each individual song.
I'm almost 100% sure that all these songs are right, but if you
disagree or have any comments, questions, corrections or just want to say hey,
e-mail me at Sarah.lardy@virgin.net and I will try to reply to all.

(Riffs are indicated above the chord that is played with it)

KEY:
 b = bend string
 h = hammer on
 p = pull off
 /or\ = slide to numbered fret
 { = rest - no chord, silence unless there is a riff continuing above it
...= duration of a riff

This is a great album. But it took me bloody ages to tab.
