Transcribed by Scott Jobson



this is my attempt at this song...if you: 



	a) find any mistakes 



	b) can be bothered transcribing the solo



	c) really liked / hated this transcription



please feel free to email me at c9315810@alinga.newcastle.edu.au



   



verses: Dm Dm/C A#maj7 Am



choruses: Gm Am A# C







if you are playing this song by yourself (as so many of us bedroom 



performers do) you might want to play the full chords as listed for the 



chorus. for the pedants,  you will notice that on the recording, these 



are played as simple power chords.







Dm     xx0231



Dm/C   x30231	



A#maj7 x13231 or x1323x (if yr lazy like me)



Am     x02210







Brian also suggests playing Asus4 for the first two beats of the Am



chord...and it works for me, so here's the chord along with my thanks to Brian for the corrections.







Asus4  x02230







Gm (full chord) 355333 or G5 (power chord)  355xxx



Am (full chord) x02210 or A5 (power chord)  x022xx



A# (full chord) x13331 or A#5 (power chord) x13300



C  (full chord) x32010 or C5 (power chord)  x355xx

SOLO







this solo isn't too hard, just alot of work to transcribe, so just try noodling around in the key of D minor... Marty seems to use alot of descending runs in this solo (which also features a delay, or echo, effect throughout).







Intro Bit + Lead







Verse 1



 [Dm]               [Dm/C]        [A#maj7]         [Am]



   The wine in your hand is worth two at the bar



 [Dm]            [Dm/C]                [A#maj7]     [Am]



   And everybody knows what you've been drinking



 [Dm]          [Dm/C]           [A#maj7]       [Am]



   Disgraceful sky flecked with a nightmare of stars



 [Dm]            [Dm/C]                [A#maj7]    [Am] 



   And everybody knows how you've been sinking 







Chorus 1   



 [Gm]            [Am]    [A#]       [C]



   Long distance century buzzes and fades



 [Gm]       [Am]             [A#]   [C]



   I wonder why you've not resigned



 [Gm]       [Am]        [A#]    [C]



   Previews processions and parades



   



                 [Dm]   [Dm/C]   [A#maj7]    [C]



   You've got to grind, grind it out







Verse 2   



   Line up the arrows, push off the top



   This can cause sustain forever



   And once it's started up, it cannot be stopped



   At least it's holding us together



   



Chorus 2



   Long distance century buzzes and fades



   An automatic charge on your mind



   The glittering minutes, jangled decades







   We've got to grind, grind it out   







Verse 3 (if you don't have a piano player handy, just strum the chords 



	 really softly)







   A vortex appears, unleashed by the crash



   A moment marred by hesitation



   Bedazzled surgeon chases the gash



   But we don't need that operation



   



Chorus 3



   Long distance century buzzes and fades



   Elysian Fields not far behind



   Find me a witness amongst these shades







   They've got to grind, grind it out



 



Solo



 



Chorus 4



   Long distance century buzzes and fades



   I hope the deaf can lead the blind



   Lift me up into those whirling blades



   



   I've got to grind, grind it out
