    THE BOY IN THE BUBBLE -- PETER GABRIEL, "Scratch My Back"(2010)
    Exact chords tabbed out by ClassicalfreaK, 2015
    ** DROP D TUNING! **
    Every single piano part that was transcribed for guitar
    tab follows the voicing of the piano to the best of my
    ability, short of an octave-change here and there. I worked
    quite a bit on this one, please give this beautiful song
    a listen and a play!

    F#m
    It was a slow day 
    F#m6
    And the sun was beating 
    F#mE
    On the soldiers by the side of the road 
    F#m
    There was a bright light 
    F#m6
    A shattering of shop windows 
    F#mE
    The bomb in the baby carriage 
    D2
    Was wired to the radio, and 
    EDsus2
    These are the days of miracle and wonder 
    EDsus2
    This is the long-distance call 
    EDsus2
    The way the camera follows us in slow-mo 
    EDsus4B
    The way we look to us all 
    C#mB4
    The way we look to a distant constellation 
    E/G#D2
    That's dying in a corner of the sky 
    F#mE5D5
    These are the days of miracle and wonder 
    E5D2
    And don't cry, baby, don't cry, don't cry

    F#m
    It was a dry wind 
    E
    And it swept across the desert 
    D6C#m
    And it curled into the circle of birth 
    F#m
    And the dead sand 
    E
    Falling on the children 
    D6
    The mothers and the fathers 
    B
    And the automatic earth 
    C#m9B5
    These are the days of miracle and wonder

    It's everybody jump start 
    BmC#m
    It's every generation throws a hero up the pop charts 
    F#mE2
    Medicine is magical and magical is art 
    D2
    Think of the boy in the bubble 
    B
    And the baby with the baboon heart 
    ED2
    These are days of lasers in the jungle 
    A/C#D5
    Lasers in the jungle somewhere 
    EBm7/D
    Staccato signals of constant information 
    A/C#B
    A loose affiliation of millionaires 
    And billionaires, and, baby
    EE/G#B
    These are the days of miracle and wonder
