                             Mill Street Junction - Be Bop Deluxe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: axe victim
Email:

Tuning:EADGBe

x  mute note
(3) optional note
C/G chord/bass

Concert favourite from the bands early days, as immortalised 
on the 'Live! In The Air Age' album, showcasing Bill Nelsons 
blistering lead guitar.  I have just tabbed the much easier
rhythm parts.



Intro: Palm mute A5 chords, let Asus4 chord ring.

Repeat from start of verse.  There are two big guitar solos, but the 
rhythm guitar is the same as during the verses.

Lyrics:

"Behind the gasworks after midnight
Mad Jane she holds a sweaty hand
And 'though the rain runs down the gutter
She dreams she hears the gasworks band.

"Somewhere cathedral bells are screaming
As someones dog answers a call
And in the back row of 'The Empire'
The phantom of the bingo hall."

"Meanwhile the miners on the night shift
Stand by the pithead in the cold
And 'though their faces look quite dirty
You know to them it feels like gold."

"A neon sign bleeds in the darkness
A thousand clubs for working men
But crazy Jane she's just a mill girl
It's plain she's coming down again."
