			Cigarettes and Alcohol
                                By Oasis

[Trans. I Lathwell]

This is how I think it sounds, but it is just from listening to the record
and so could well be wrong. If anyone has any comments then please send
them to me.

[Intro/E Riff]
The Intro and other E chord places is a riff that repeats between E and
Esus4 (002220), I think the rythmn is something like ||S|||S|||S|||S (With
S being the Sus4 chord)

E/ESus4 F# A

Verse 1-
E                               F#            A                       E
Is it my imagination, or have I finally found something worth looking for,
E                                  F#              A                   E
I was looking for some action, but all I found was Cigarettes and Alcohol,

A                    E         A                         E
You could wait for a lifetime, to spend your days in the sunshine,
A                      E                         D
You might as well be a white lie, 'cause when it comes on top,   (???? Words)
A                 E       A                 E
You gotta make it happen, you gotta make it happen,   (X2)

D A E A E ... to solo

Verse 2-
Is it worth the agrivation, 
to find yourself a job when there's nothing worth working for,
It's a crazy situation, but all I need are Cigarettes and Alcohol,



Ad lib and mess around bit-
E   A
    You gotta make it
E   A
    You gotta fake it


[A couple of riffs I picked out]

[Chorus Riff]            [Other Riff]  

That's all I got. I think listening to T Rex might be a good source for the
other Riffs in the song, as they all seem to be stolen from some song or

[Note on pronounciation]
The way words are sung makes a big difference to this song, any word that
ends in tion, should be said 'sheeeon'. Sunshine is pronounced
