SECRET
Written by Missy Higgins

2 beats per chord
(capo at first fret for recorded key of Bbm)

Chord names represent implied harmony.
Guitar part is a repeating four beat 'vamp' consisting of the
root notes and percussive accents - refer to TAB for detail.

INTRO:
Am  G  Am  G
             You were

VERSE:
Am                   G
From the North I was from the South we were from

Opposite places different towns but I
Am                      G         Am     G
Knew it was good and you  knew it was too  and so we
Am                    G
Moved together like a ball and chain
Am                 G
Minds becoming two halves of the same it was
Am              G          Am  G*
Real but in the shadows it grew  'cos

  Given it all to be-long to you but there were
Am             G*              Am   G
Diff'rent plans  and different rules  you said
Am                      G
Where I'm from there is a lock and key if you'd
Am                 G
  Be so kind as to follow me well I will
Am                      G              Am  G*
Show you the way to the rest of my sins__   'cos

Room was damp where your sins laid there was that
NC                   NC
Smell in the air of an old place that
Am               G           Am   G

Am                      G                   Am  G*
Do what we want my baby out of the spotlight___  'cos

CHORUS:

================================================================================

VAMP:
   Am      >     G         >
   1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a   - sixteenths count
E|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|
A|---------x-x-x-2-x-x-2===x-x-----|  * = include 5th-string notes
E|-5=======x-x-x-3-x-x-3===x-x-0===|
   d       d u d u d u d   d u d

=== = sustained note
  x = muted strum
  > = accented beat
d/u = down/up stroke

Maintain down/up picking in sixteenths throughout to ensure accurate
timing and 'groove'. The change to G-chord is a syncopated UP-stroke.

The very first sound on the recording is a major third dyad (Fret-4
on the 5th-string sounds quietly) suggesting that Missy is holding
the same shape for each 'chord' but is keeping the 5th-string muted
except for the parts marked with *
