The Fountainhead
by The Bluetones
Tabbed by Frederic Maquet (

This is another great song of the "Expecting to Fly" album. If you like
it, email me and tell me about it with corrections/comments...
I hope the intro is accurate enough, but it sounds good! The whole song
is played with two guitars, but you can survive with just one! The
rythm is
a bit hard though, so you'll have to listen to the song to get it right.

Em7E E Esus4 E Am- Am G A

Esus bit again Am- Am D5 A

Verse 1: (play with 1st intro riff)
Em7 E Esus E Am- Am
God knows I've tried, to bridge the gap,
I've tried to be me,
Em7 E Esus E Am- Am
And time after time I've lied, just to say the things,
You wanted to hear,
Em7 E Esus E Am Am7 Am (Am7 is x02213)
Look, look what I've done, look what I do,
G A E Em7 E
I'm starting to pull myself through,
Esus E Am- Am G A D
Hell could feasibly freeze, but in your eyes, I'll always be...

Chorus 1:
F# G A D
The Fountainhead, the boy whose thoughts keep running away
F# G A (play this A as x0222x)
And you know I'm riiight.

Verse 2: (same chord progression as verse 1)
Em7 E Esus E Am- Am G A E
Wasn't it you who said, I went looking, to open the eyes of my head

And now I can see, from your mistakes, you're as blind as me

God knows I try, God know I've tried, to be something more than I am
Hell could feasibly freeze, but in your eyes I'll always be...

Chorus 2:
Same as Chorus 1

Break: Plays basic riff, with lots of bass.

Verse 3: (The whole thing is played with the 1st intro riff)
Em7 E Esus E
What can I say without being profound,
Am- Am G A
It's a game that we play, goes round and round
Em7 E Esus E
I shall stick to the rules and I won't stop a fool
Am- Am G A
And I won't be defied and I won't lose my cool,
Em7 E Esus E
Can't you see what I've done can't you see what I do?
Am- Am G A
It's not really unique but it's hopelessly cruel,
Em7 E Esus E
These are my decisions these are my mistakes
G A (single strum)
And I'll fall down again if that what it takes...

Play riff:
Em7 E Esus E G A

Cool bit: (slow single strums)
