Guitar chords with lyrics

Roads by Portishead
			-------------------
				Tabbed by Frederic Maquet


The A chord diagramA minorAm chord is sometimes "sussed" to add a transition, but mostly
chords
are just strummed once with lots of echo and reverb and a bit of
distortion.  The strumming can be slightly tricky if you're singing at
the same time, so listen to the record to get it right.
