Morrissey - Boxers tab
Thanks to whoever wrote the Boxers chord page, very helpful for this. This is for the recorded version like
the Boxers chords page; it is in the key of A chord diagramA augmentedA and starts with the A/D sequence.
For the live version, play everything two frets higher, or w/ a capo at 2nd fret (intro chords are B/E).
Intro
Play barre chords at the fifth fret for the intro. Listen to the recording for the rhythm.

Corrections are welcome.)
