A Different Man

(Kilbey)

Taken from Shadow Cabinet
Transcribed by James Dignan
(Brian Smith put the E minor into the verse)

D  D/C#  GMaj7/B  G *

Gmaj7/B can also be called Bmsus4, played x20032

*on this intro and the chorus, the lead guitar just alternates between D
and G, but I think there's also rhythm (or just a "feel", using the bass
somehow, of a progression through D, Asus, Bm and G. See the Tab (!) below.

[A]Inside himself, He [Em]runs to look in the [G]mirror
[A]And the face that stares right back has [Em]never been any [G]clearer
[A]But look at the doubt in his eyes [Bm]He's not the one to [C]blame

D                  D/C#                    GMaj7/B
It was a different man, no he's never been here
               G                   D
You can be so close, you can be so near
                   D/C#                   GMaj7/B
It was a different man, playing different cards
              G                   D (overlaps start of verse)
You can be so soft, you can be so hard

Inside himself, He follows the wrong directions
Perfect English words all right But with the wrong inflections
But look at the dust at his feet He's not the one she loves

It was a different man, no he's never been found
You can be so up, you can be so down
It was a different man, no he's never been there
You can be halfway, you can be all there (repeat first chorus)

Instrumental bit
D   D/C#  G/B  G
G   Em    C    D
Em  F     G
G   G/F#  CMaj7/E   C

(NB:this last line is simply the intro transposed one key flat around the
chord cycle. I'm not sure of the Em in the second line, but I can't think
what else it might be)

Inside himself, He thinks that he looks the same
And the mind that thinks it all out Never noticed any change
But look at the doubt in his eyes He's not the one to blame

And here's the guitar tab for the intro etc...

Intro

Aminor//  Aminor7___let ring (x4)

Aminor_____
Tiny drops of water glistened on her black fur
Aminor_____
Taillights in earshot, headlights shine through her
Fmajor7
Legs crossed on the red surge settee
Fmajor7
Sat next to nothing as she looked right through me, and on
Aminor
Inside the car sat a sulky blonde
Aminor
And on her lap, the road went on and on
Fmajor7
As she dresses, I look to the ground
Fmajor7
Perhaps I know where the place can be found, and on
Aminor// Aminor7____(x2)

Chorus
C------------G/B-------------Aminor
Outside, the night is very soft, but where does it end?
C-----------------------------------G/B---------------------Aminor
We pile into the Buick, but youíve got to have money for that

Aminor
92 people take it way too fast
Aminor
They never notice where their lines are cast, and on
Fmajor7
Legs crossed on the red surge settee
Fmajor7
Sat next to nothing, and she looked right through me, and on
Aminor
Iíve got a milk-white electric guitar
Aminor
Walked in the shop and I peeled off the notes, oh yeah
Fmajor7
As she dresses, I look to the ground
Fmajor7
Perhaps I know where the place can be found, and on
