Sad Song by Noel Gallagher

This is the bonus track on the vinyl version of Definitley Maybe, but I've
never actually heard that version. I heard it played on Oasis' appearance
on Channel 4's 'The White Room' and on the 'Live by the Sea' video.
	The version I have 'tabbed' is the version played on 'The White Room',
Noel Gallagher seems to play about with it quite alot, but this is the
meat(?) of the song.


	In the intro the strums in-between the single note picking is not
really as precise as it is tabbed and isn't played very loudly.

       Am            C
Sing a sad song in a lonely place,
    Dsus2                    E   G
And try to put a word in for me,
          Am              C
It's been so long since I found a space,
      Dsus2                E       G
You'd better put in two or three,
      Am              C
We as people are just walking round,
    Dsus2                         E        G
Our heads are firmly fixed in the ground,
        Am                 C
What we don't see, well it can't be real,
     Dsus2                    E      G
What we don't touch we cannot feel.

Pre Chorus
C                  G
Where we're livin' in this town,
    Am                        C

But it's all just the same at the end of the day,
       Am           G
And we cheat and we lie,
Am                           G
Nobody says it's wrong so we don't ask why,
          Am           G                      D   Dsus2 D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
'Cos it's all just the same at the end of the day.

We're throwing it all away,

We're throwing it all away at the end of the day.

*****  Play Intro  **************

           Am               C
If you're needing something I can give,
    Dsus2                  E   G
I'll try and help you if I can,
          Am             C
If you're honest and you say you did,
    Dsus2                         E     G
You know that I would give you my hand,
      Am              C
Or a sad song in a lonely place,
    Dsus2                      E    G
I'll try and put a word in for you,
           Am                 C
You need a shoulder? Well if that's the case,
     Dsus2                     E  G
There isn't nothing I wouldn't do.

About the artist behind Sadsong Tab:

Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. The group was formed by Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals). Oasis have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,[1] and have had eight UK number one singles. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by rhythm/lead guitarist and songwriter Gem Archer, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell and unofficial drummer Zak Starkey.

The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White, whilst rivalling with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers were featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling rivalry and wild lifestyles, cultivating reputations both as bad boys and as a band of the people. At the height of their fame, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, but lost much of its long-term appeal after the initial hype and positive reception tempered.

While recording their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) in 1999, Oasis lost two founding members and suffered a notable decline in popularity in America. The band added replacements Gem Archer and Andy Bell for Heathen Chemistry (2002). Their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth (2005) with Zak Starkey, despite turbulent recording, became their best-selling and best-received album in a decade. The following year, the band released a compilation album entitled Stop the Clocks. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music.

The seventh studio album by the band is reported to be complete and, although an official release date has not been confirmed, both Liam and Noel Gallagher have been quoted as saying that the album is due out in September 2008. [2] [3]
