The Snitches – Swallow (Guitar Tab)

Playing Notes

This is NOT the way they play it. This is a version I made for acoustic guitar. Add a step to play without a capo. (eg. E=F#).

Lyrics

These are the correct lyrics. Mike Webber, the lyricists, got in touch with me after it was posted and sent me the real ones.

Playing Notes from Mike

The other thing is when you go from the E to the A throw in a quick D and same when going back from the A to the E. The D would be, for example, between “worry & I getting better…” in the first couple of lines, then again going back between Hurry & I learn. It fills out the melody.
I played it in F# but in fact it works better the way you do it!

CAPO II

E
Oh baby listen
Don't you worry
A
I getting better
Clean up in a hurry

E
I learn to swallow
Oh swallow
A
All the things
Put off to tommorrow

E

I'll go with Johnny
A
You stay here cause
I won't be gone long

E
Frankie's worth millions
Know it for sure yeah
A
Just get a little
By keep working hard babe

E
Singled out buckshot, waiting for the man
                                          A
He was cold he was still he was wide-open mouth
E
Everybody thought he was money in the making
                                                     A
He was gold, he was steel, heading west with his hands on the wheel

              E
Call him what you will
            A
He calls it plan
E
Same it's always
                A
Let's see if it stands

G              D           E
Don't rely on thinking it over
            G          D              E
We're gonna fly but we gotta leave now
G
What's your name?
      D
Think about
         A
What you want
         E
Write it down
       G
One by one
      D
I was old
        A
You were young
         E
So carry on
         A
So carry on

E
Things are a bit out there
Don't need nothing but
A
Babe you look angel
And I know I seem scary

E
Out on the South Shore
They got a house now
A
They're getting organized
Think we should head out

E
Oh baby listen
Don't you worry
A
I getting better
Clean up in a hurry

E
I learn to swallow
Oh swallow
A
All the things
Put off to tommorrow

E A
