Cornerstone by Arctic Monkeys Guitar Chords

Tuning: Standard
This is the capo version of Cornerstone chords by Robert Farell that was submitted
by MyNameIsRamone.

Thanks a lot you two for making and submitting this tab here.

I think it would be a lot easier for some novice player to play this song without
the bar chords 🙂 so i made the capo version of it.
But i?m still can?t figure how to play Dm while placing your capo on 2nd fret so i
guess you still have to play the chord like this:

Dm: 556645

here we go…..

Guitar 1 (Alex Turner)


Verse 1
I thought I saw you in the battleship
but it was only a look-a-like
She was nothing but a vision trick
Under the warning light
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
But my chances turned to toast
When i asked her if i could call her your name[(Em][Em)]

I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
Huddled up in a wicker chair
I wandered over for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there
She was close, and she held me very tightly
’Til I asked awfully politely, please

Can I call you her name.

(To transition into the chorus play this; G Em G Em Em, listen out for the strumming)

And I elongated my lift home,
Yeah, I let him go the long way ’round
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself
G C Em (Come in with G at the end of the chorus and play these chords like in the verse)

Verse 2 (Same Pattern)
I thought I saw you in the parrots beak,
Messing with the smoke alarm,
It was too loud for me to hear her speak,
And she had a broken arm,
It was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out in letra-set
No, you can't call me her name

Tell me where’s your hiding place
I’m worried I’ll forget your face
And I’ve asked everyone
I’m beginning to think I imagined you all along

And I elongated my lift home,
Yeah, I let him go the long way ’round
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

G C Am x2 (Play this like you would in the verse)

Verse 3
I saw your sister in the cornerstone
On the phone to the middle man
When I saw that she was on her own
I thought she might understand
She was close, well you couldn’t get much closer
She said i’m really not supposed to but yes,
You can call me anything you want.

Fade out.
