No chord
Standard guitar tuning:
E
A
D
G
B
E
No capo

You may want to work out strumming and timing for yourself especially in the bridge and solo

where it gets a bit different. It's overall a pretty simple song from the new album. Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)

Intro

A

Verse 1

AI thought I saw you in the battleship Dbut it was only a looBmk-a-like AShe was nothing but a vision trick DUnder the warniBmng light FmShe was close, closeA enough to be your ghost Fm ABut my chances turned to toast DWhen i asked her if i could calBml her your name A Fm A Fm Verse 1 [cont] (Same pattern) I thought I saw you in the rusty hook Huddled up in a wicker chair I wandered over for a closer look And kissed who ever was sitting there She was close, and she held me very tightly 'Til I asked awfully politely, please Can I call you her name.

A Fm A Fm E

Chorus

DAnd I elongated my lift home, Bm FmYeah, I let him go the long way 'round D BmI smelt your scent on the seatbelt EAnd kept my shortcuts to myself

A D E Com A

Verse 2

Same Pattern) AI thought I saw you in the parrots beak, DMessing with the smoke alBmarm, AIt was too loud for me to hear her speak, DAnd she had a broken aBmrm, FmIt was close, so cloAse that the walls were wet Fm AAnd she wrote it out in letra-set DNo, you can'Bmt call me her name Cm

Bridge

ATell me where's your hiding placCme AI'm worried I'll forgeCmt your face FmAnd I've asked everyone BmI'm beginning to think I imagined yEou all along E6

Chorus

DAnd I elongated my lift home, Bm FmYeah, I let him go the long way 'round D BmI smelt your scent on the seatbelt DmAnd kept my shortcuts to myself

Solo

A D Bm x2 (Play this like you would in the verse)

Fm Bm

D E

Verse 3

AI saw your sister in the cornerstone DOn the phone to the middle manBm AWhen I saw that she was on her own DI thought she might understandBm FmShe was close, well you couldn't Aget much closer FmShe said i'm reaAlly not supposed to but yes, D You can call me anything you wBmant. A Fade out.
