Afghan Whigs

Afghan Whigs - Crime Scene Pt 1 guitar tab

crime scene pt. 1

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: The bass seems to be in dropped D (from low to high DADG). Although I have never heard of the whigs using this type of tuning I’ve tabbed it in that tuning anyway. The guitar is in normal tuning.

The song begins in Bb major, then in chorus it goes to F major

lyrics

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

guitar and bass enter at 1:04 with riff 1

Riff 1

Tonight, tonight I say goodbye

To everyone who loves me

Stick it to my enemies, tonight

Then I disappear

Bathe my path in shining light

Set the dials to thrill me

Every secret has its price

This one's set to kill

Riff 2

Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright

A lie, the truth, which one should I use?

If the lie succeeds

Then you'll know what I mean

When I tell you I have secrets

To attend

Riff 3

Do you think I'm beautiful?

Or do you think I'm evil?

Will you take me for a ride?

The one that never ends

Riff 4

Too loose, too tight, too dark, too bright

A lie, the truth, which one shall I use?

If the lie succeeds

Then you'll know what I mean

When I tell you I have secrets

To attend

Riff 1

Tonight, tonight I say goodbye

Riff 3

To everything that thrills me

As I throw the chains

I forged in life

To shatter on the floor

Riff 4

As I dream all the evidence

Is piling up against me

As I breathe all the essence rare

Is falling off the vine

And if you knew, just how smooth

I could stop it on the dime

You could meet me at the

scene of the crime

End with riff 1...
