Tab Mapper

The tab mapper is a handy little tool that will render a guitar tab file with graphic chord diagrams displayed alongside. This comes in handy for people who just don't have every single chord shape memorized. Just plug in the web site address of a valid .tab or .crd file and hit "Go". In general, the tab mapper does a better job with printer friendly URLs. If there is more than one way to play a chord, the tab mapper will choose the most common shape. To see other fingerings, click on the chord diagram and you will be taken to the chord calculator.

[verse]
             C#m
Born to multiply or
                 F#m
Born to gaze into   night skies
        A              G#m            E
All you want's one more Saturday
                    C#m
But look here until then
                      F#m
They're gonna buy your   life's time
             A
So keep your wick in the air
           B
And your feet in the fetters 'til the day
                    E
They come in doing cartwheels

[chorus]
                       B
We all crawl out by ourselves
                       E
And your shape on the dance floor
                           B
Will have me thinking such filth I'll gouge my eyes
         C#m          A               C#m
You'd be damned to be one of us girl
           A
Faced with dodo's conundrum
E  F#m                       A
I      felt like I could just fly
    G#m                          B
But nothing happened every time I tried

E

[verse]
                   C#m
Oh, duotone on the wall
                                 F#m
The selfless fool who hoped he'd   save us all
           A              G#m            E
He never dreamt of such sterile hands
                             C#m
You keep them folded in your lap
                    F#m
And raise them up to   beg for scraps
              A                         B
You know he's holding you down with the tips of his fingers just the same


[chorus]
                            E
Will you be pulled from the ocean
                      B
But just a minute too late
                E
Or changed by a potion
                         B
To find a handsome young mate for you to love

          C#m                          A
You'll be damned to pining through the window panes,
       C#m                              A         E   F#m
and oh     you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe's
                              A
And though your night will go on
                G#m                          B
Your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold

E | C#m | F#m | A | G#m E
E | C#m | F#m | E B

Solo: I don't have it complete but it's not so hard to work out.

                                 E
Been alone since you were twenty-one
                                  B
You haven't laughed since January
                                         E
You try and make like this is so much fun
                                    B
But we know it to be quite contrary
La la la la la la la
C#m        A             C#m
Dare to be one of us girl
               A
Faced with the android's conundrum
E  F#m                        A
I      feel like I should just cry
    G#m                          A
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin
    G#m
You hammer in your code
               A
You don't know how long I have been
G#m                    A
Watching the latern dim
G#m              A
Starved of oxygen
   F#m                         A            B      E
So give me your hand and let's jump out the window.
