Jack The Ripper
	(Morrissey/Boz Boorer)

I'm taking this song off of the "World of Morrissey" CD, which means I'm
transcribing a live version of this song.  It's a pretty neat song indeed in
my humble opinion.

Before I do anything, the guitar for the chorus section (the "crash into my
arms" part) is:

  A chord diagramA augmentedA             A chord diagramE MajorE                 A chord diagramD MajorD            A chord diagramE MajorE                 A chord diagramA augmentedA

The other important part that is featured in this song is that eerie guitar
part which starts from a high-pitched note down (you know what I mean).  I
believe it's just (on the high A chord diagramE MajorE string):

End on A chord diagramF# minorF#m


Note that the chorus starts on the A chord diagramA augmentedA chord.  The A chord diagramA augmentedA chord appears on the last
line in the verse of my transcription because Morrissey sings a second and a
half after the chord is played.  Blah blah blah.  Just something I that I
thought would confuse you.  Bye-bye...
