Street Light Tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     Street Light - Tom Mcrae
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by:Floor Demon

Tuning:standard

This version of street light is the one that tom plays live which can be heard at
his website www.tommcrae.com. The origional version is on the double a side with
the a & b song. I think the live version is better as it is played lower (the
origional is done wih a capo on the 3rd or 4th fret and played differently) and
has more base in it which makes the tune sound fuller.

This is played during the intro and verse. Its easy to see how it fits if you know the song

Shes a steet light, in the evening rain
shes an empty seat, on the rush hour train
shes a polaroid, lying on the street
shes the lover I, may never meet

Then comes the bridge part which is a little harder to get the timing for

   but I                                    I dont mind

Then it goes back to the same as the verse for the do do do do bit.

2nd verse

Shes a phonecall, in the dead of night
the strangers voice I recognise
shes the radio, playing in the dark
the name youll find written on my heart



Thats how all the bits are done.
