I Often Dream of Trains

Flavour of Night
The treble clef initially ascends.
The bass clef descends to the D then up to the E and C.

Octave jumps apply to treble clef:
8^[--] one octave up.
2*8^[--] two octaves up.

Long slender shadows pulsating in windows

But who needs to talk when you're caught in the flavour of night
D           Bm                 A   G     D
You    Yeah you      With your ice-cream hands.
D           Bm                 Cdim5
You    Yeah you         Are my friend.
All that you want could be happening for you
Just like the road that unrolls there before you tonight
Eyes you don't trust but the fingers that beckon

How long you got left? Well how long do you reckon
But who goes to waste when they're tasting the flavour of night
You Yeah you with your ice-cream hands
You Yeah you are my friend

I often dream of trains when I'm alone
G         Dm      F   C     G
I ride on them into another zone
Gm              Bb
I dream of them constantly
Bb           Eb          Cm              D7
Heading for paradise, or Basingstoke or Reading

Same pattern for the remaining verses:

I often dream of trains when I'm awake
They ride along beside a frozen lake
And there in the buffet car
I wait for eternity, or Basingstoke or Reading

I often dream of trains till it gets light
Summer turns to winter overnight
The leaves falls so suddenly
The sun sets at four o'clock, exactly what I'm dreading

I often dream of trains when I'm with you
I wonder if you dream about them too
Maybe we'll meet one night
Out in the corridor, I'm waiting for you baby...

Special last chorus

Your mother is a journalist your father is a creep
They make it in your bedroom when they think you're fast asleep
The scenes that they're enacting now beside your little bed
Are never in your consciousness but always in your head

Baby it might sound dodgy now but it sounds great when you're dead
It sounds great when you're ...

Your sister is a butterfly your brother is a drunk
You gaze at him reclining in formaldehyde, a trunk
He lives and breathes on systems that nobody can supply
And you're immune to everything except the butterfly
Yeah...

Baby it might sound dodgy now but it sounds great when you're dead
It sounds great when you're dead

(Piano break)

Baby you're incredible I think that you're the most
I've searched around for everything like you from coast to coast
Your name engraved in diamonds written in my heart
We're at our most together when we're at our most apart
Mmm...

Baby it might sound dodgy now but it sounds great when you're dead
Baby it might sound dodgy now but baby let me assure you
It sounds great when you're dead


I Used To Say I Love You
Intro: D A G A D A G A

I used to say I love you
    A             G   A G A
It wasn't really true

I wanted to believe it
     A           G    A G A    
And now I almost do
I used to say I love you
I said it as a threat
Or maybe as a promise
To see what I could get

But my heart doesn't break any more
	D            DMaj7     C     G
No my heart doesn't ache any more
	  Em            D        D/C
Cause it just couldn't take any more

Alternately, one might express it this way:

E5(add D#): 0X2440
 E5(add D): 0X2430 (bass plays D)
	 A: X02220 (bass plays C#)
       Am7: X02013 (bass plays C)

As for the next part, it's picked the same way in
the IODOT version, but strummed in most live versions
I've heard. The B is just X24442, at least at first.
All others as shown above...
      A       E    B      F#
Cause you're  not  there  and

A  E      B     F#
I  don't  care  and

A       E    B
You're  not  there

The live versions I've heard pretty much end there, but at
the end of the IODOT version the guitar picks variations on B
for a while as the bass alternates between B and E. At the
end there's an overdubbed part that does a nice scale thing,
sorta like this:

-----2-----0----------------:-----2-----0-------------------
-----------------4-----2--0-:-----------------4-----2-0-----
---4-----4-----4-----4----4-:-------------------------4---4-

----------------------------:-------------------------------

And that's it, really. Have lots of fern!


THE BONES IN THE GROUND
For the most part, this isn't chords at all, it's just picked notes. And there are only four of them. The tendency is to want to play it E-B-D-A, but it doesn't sound quite the same that way. The intro, I believe, is played thusly...

------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------1------------
------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------0-1:-1-0------------------------0-2-3-----3--------
--------1-3:-3----------3-1:-1-0----------1-3:---------3---0------
-1:-1-3--------------------------3-1:-1-3--------------------3-1:-


And the part I refer to
below as A#-(A-G) is...
-----------------------
-----------------------
-------3-----3---------
-----3-----3-----3-----
---1-----0-------------
---------------3---1:--

   F       C             D#             A#
Oh Vera my sweet I would offer you some meat
     F            C            A#-(A-G)
in exchange for a good loaf of wax...
	F           C          A#              D#
I would smear it on you and on all your apples too
     F                C          A#-(A-G)
if I thought it would help you relax...

	F            C                D#           A#
But the bones in the ground well they never make a sound
	F            C              A#-(A-G)
and the bones in the ground are all fine...
	F            C             D#            A#
And the bones in the air well they haven't got a care
	C            C           A#-(A-G)
and the bones in the air are all mine...

The chords played by the
Overdubbed Rickenbacker
sound somewhat like these:

F:  XX356X
C:  XX555X
A#: XX333X
D#: XXX343

Or, instead of
the D#, sometimes
it's this bit:
--------6-------
----6--------6--
------7---------
--8--------8----
----------------
----------------

And the rest of it:

   F        C              D#                   A#
Oh shiny Maureen won't you tell me where you've been
	 F              C             A#-(A-G)
and I'll work out where you should be now
     F          C            A#                  D#
In a cluster of apes that do rub themselves with grapes
	  F           C         A#-(A-G)
you'll be tied to the back of a cow

But the bones in the ground well they never make a sound
And the bones in the ground are all fine
And the bones in the wind oh have mercy how they grin
And the bones in the wind are all mine

---------------
At this point I believe there's a mandolin, or maybe a
balalaika (I vote balalaika) starting up in there.
---------------

   F          C               D#            A#
Oh poor la-Lorraine won't you comment on my sprain
	 F            C         A#-(A-G)
and I'll shave you in some cozy church
	F                C              A#                D#
I don't care what you're called, I just want to shave you bald
	 F              C           A#-(A-G)
and I'll know that I've finished my search

And the bones in the ground well they never make a sound
and the bones in the ground are all fine
And the bones in the air well they sing a rattling air
and the bones in the air are all mine

And finally, the Rickenbacker chimes in at the end with
something that might vaguely resemble this:

-----------------6-3--3---------------3----3-----
-43--6----8-5--5-6-4----4------3--------5----5-6-
---5-5--57--5--5----------3--35--5--5---5------3-
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
...Though I'm guessing as to the actual fingering (and
to some extent the whole ending)!
