Song Title: Boys Don't Cry
Artist: The Cure
----------------------------------------------

Here's "Boys Don't Cry" by The Cure.

Intro:
G -----------------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------------
A --- 0 ---- 2 ---- 4 ----- 5 ----- 5 ---- 4 --- 2 ----
E -----------------------------------------------------

Then comes the chorus part (repeat 3x):
G ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A ------ 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 ---
E -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G ----------------------------------------------------
D ----------------------------------------------------
A ------ 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 4 -- 2 -------------
E -----------------------------------------------------

Then there’s the verse part, which is almost the same as the chorus:
G ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A ------ 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 0 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 ---
E -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G -----------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------
A ------ 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 ---
E ----------------------------------------------

Now comes this part, which leads to the chorus (“So I tried to laugh about it...”):
G ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A ------ 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 ------
E -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A --- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -- 5 -----
E -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A ---- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 4 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 -- 2 ------------------------------------- -----------
E -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


That’s it, the whole song. Listen and you’ll figure out where each part go. Sorry for any mistake, but
this is my first tab.
