Arctic Monkeys - The Afternoons Hat
Tabbed by: Aled Parry
Email: aparry491@btinternet.com
This is a B-Side from 'My Propeller' EP.
Tuning: Standard E

Please listen to the song for strum timing etc.
Personally the strumming is easy.
But singing at the same time is a challenge.
Alex Turner has really stepped up his skills in this track.

[Intro]
Am

[Verse]
Am
Made me kiss ya' with a whisper
    F                     Dm          Am
and violently you swung, through unfamiliar tounge
Am                             F                 Dm       Am
Couldn't listen to tradition, grabbed me by the wrist to silently insist

[Chorus]
                     F          Dm                Am
And when i'm in the confines of crawling walls, you hold me in place
                     F         Dm          Am
The ripples on the ceiling the avenues, unsugared taste
                F            Dm            Am
Waste away the evening, the afternoon, the afternoons hat
   F                 Dm                       Am
Together we'll find something to direct some laughter at

[Verse]
Am
You stood shirtless and confident
F                 Dm     Am                (pausa)
Listenin' to the fools, tickling the rules
Am
Their obsessions follow patterns
F               Dm      Am
Sat upon their stools, with their attitudes

                     F           Dm                 Am
And when i'm in the confines of crawling walls, you hold me in place
                     F          Dm         Am
The ripples on the ceiling the avenues, unsugared taste
               F             Dm            Am
Waste away the evening, the afternoon, the afternoons hat
   F                Dm                  Am
Together we'll find something to direct some laughter at

                    F            Dm                 Am
And when i'm in the confines of crawling walls, you hold me in place
                    F            Dm        Am
The ripples on the ceiling the avenues, unsugared taste
               F              Dm          Am
Waste away the evening, the afternoon, the afternoons hat
   F                 Dm                      Am (ring)
Together we'll find something to direct some laughter at.
