Take me Down to the Infirmary - Cracker
By Taylor  

I figured out "Infirmary" a few minutes ago, it's really very easy.
I don't have the CD here to check the transcription, but if memory
serves, it should be pretty close.

I think it starts:

(Tacet)   C           G
Take me down, to the infirmary,
   Am7  Am             F
Lay me down, on cotton sheets.
        C               G
With a damp cloth, on my forehead,
       C     F      C             
Lay me down, let me sleep...

Changover to chorus: C Am7 G

G		       Am7  Am   				
I know the wiskey, it won't soothe my soul,
F			       C				
And the morphine won't heal my pain,
     Am7           G    	Am	  F
But if you take me down to the infirmary, yea.
		C     F    	C
I won't have to sleep, or drink alone.


etc. etc.
{sorry, that's all the lyrics I can remember}

If that Am7 causes trouble for you drop it, it is just cosmetic, but you 
have to play it right for it to work.  In the verse, it is just one
beat.  In the chorus, it gets a few beats, maybe 3.

Chorus changeover:  

Just one beat per chord.  C Am7 G (hold the G 2 beats, then your in the chorus).

I guess that gives you something, I'm not sure if it is entirely right
though.  Have fun with it, and let me know if there are any problems.
