Bass tabs with lyrics

-------------------------
 C'mon Billy - PJ Harvey
-------------------------
bass transcribed by Greg O'Beirne (gobeirne@tartarus.uwa.edu.au)
Note: This is only my interpretation of the basslines as they're
   not that clear when you listen to it :) They also try and
   incorporate the string sections, so if you're playing with
   just bass and guitars you can get the overall sound of the
   song. Listen to the recording for the timing. Have fun! :)

Just before the chorus, substitute the last line of the verse with:

For the instrumental, play last verse line, then this, then the chorus:

Note: On these last two lines, strike the bottom E pretty hard so
   it buzzes a bit. Pick the quiet G normally, though :)


Here's a fill you can throw in to the "Come along billy, Come to me" bit:

  1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +  1  +  2  +  3  +  4  +
