			     Jerusalem - Simon Finn

This is based on the live version. I'm not sure whether he plays these exact
chords on the album version, but they seem to fit the song. 
It's basically just three chords - C (or C/G), Em and Am - with a slight
variation on the D string. Tabbed out, it would look something like this:

    C        Em       Am

I've marked the spots in the lyrics with the letters ph, but listen to the
song and watch the live videos for the exact timing. 

Tuning: Standard
[ Tab from: ]
Intro: C (ph) Em (ph) Am (ph) Em (ph) C (ph)

C    (ph)          Em        (ph)
The smell of newly cut corn
     Am      (ph)             Em    (ph)   C
Came sifting through the palm trees
C  (ph)           Em      (ph)
My eyes they were blinded
       Am     (ph)       Em       (ph)  C
By the sun reflecting on the seas

C   (ph)          Em       (ph)
One hundred dozen mermaids
Am          (ph)               Em   (ph)  C
Smiled as I passed through the haze 
C   (ph)              Em      (ph)
The sound of familiar voices
Am  (ph)  Em   (ph)  C
Of yonder days

C (ph) Em    (ph) Am    (ph) Em
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem
Em (ph)       C
    Oh no, no
