Subject: The Holy Hour by The Cure



Here is the bass tab and chords for the Cure song -The Holy Hour- written by

The Cure. It is off of their depressing =faith= album. A friend of mine,

veronica,, figured out the Em and Am bass progression.

I figured out that it was Am to Em and the F bass portion.


Here is the basic bass part for the chords:


Am Em F


G --------3-3-2-2----------------|-------------------------------|

D -----------------------3-3-2-2-|--------3-3-2-2--------3-3-2-2-|

A -----0-------------------------|-------------------------------|

E -3-3------------3-3-0----------|-3-3-1----------3-3-1----------|



(Basically the verse is just Am to Em and the chorus is F)


I kneel and wait in silence

As one by one the people slip away

Into the night

The quite and empty bodies

Kiss the ground before they pray

Kiss the ground

And slip away


I sit and listen dreamlessly

A promise of salvations makes me stay

Then look at your face

And feel my heart pushed in

As all around the children play

The games they tired of yesterday

They play

They play


I stand and hear my voice

Cry out

A wordless scream at ancient power

It breaks against stone

I softly leave you crying

I cannot hold what you devour

Sacrifice all penance

In the holy hour
