Can anybody tab out Pearly Dew Drops drop by the Cocteau Twins? I found a chord sheet but it wasn't entirely accurate or helpful.
#2
I'm glad I'm not the only one who has an appreciation of the Cocteau Twins! Posting here so if/when you get that tab I can reference it. You mind posting the chord sheet?

This is the way I mainly hear it.... however, to me it is more difficult to understand the lyrics then the chords I used..... that is why I am not submitting this as I dont believe the words are correct and even on the internet there is a huge discrepency about the lyrics used...... But anyway, I gave it a try......

Was the exact lyrics ever on the back of the cd or somewhere that were the official lyrics and that
We're 100% correct.... If anyone really knows the exact lyrics and are positive they are 100% correct please post them here....

It's tough to figure out Cocteau Twins lyrics because I think they weren't always printed in the booklet, and sometimes Elizabeth Fraser would sing random words she felt fit the mood of the song, sometimes foreign words or just sounds she felt fit.

Nevertheless the lyrics you have seem fine, I don't think anybody except the band themselves know what Elizabeth was singing a lot of the time.

Well, thanks for letting me know about the lyrics... Shame about the lyrics in a way as there music is really good...
