Miss Misery


For you aspiring / actual guitar players out there, this is a rough (and I
mean _rough_, my acoustic sounds out of tune whenever I go down to D) set
of chords for "Miss Misery".  I make no claims to the total accuracy of
chords & lyrics.  Hopefully this will provide a real guitarist with a
start toward figuring out the song for real.

Miss Misery
tune down to D G C F A D
*chords denote forms, not actual sounds, i.e. Em in this tuning makes a Dm
chord.

[Em] I'll [D]fake it [C]through the [G]day with some [Em]help [Em/B]from
Johnny Walker [Am]Red, send the [G]poison [D]rain [C]down the [G]drain to
[Em]put bad thoughts in my [B]head. [Em]Two [D]tickets [C]torn in [G]half
and a [Em]lot of [Em/B]nothing to [Am]do.  Do you [G]miss [D]me, [C]miss
[G]miser[Am]y like you [C]say you [G]do?

[Em]A man in the [C]park read the [G]lines in my [Am]hand, told me I'm
[C]strong, hardly ever [D]wrong, I said man you mean...

[Em]You have [D]plans for [C]both of [G]us that in[Em]volve a [Em/B]trip
out of [Am]town to a [G]place I've [D]seen in a [C]maga[G]zine that
[Em]you left lying a[B]round. [Em]I don't [D]have you [C]with me [G]but I
[Em]keep [Em/B]a good atti[Am]tude.  Do you [G]miss [D]me, [C]miss
[G]miser[Am]y like you [C]say you [G]do?

[Em]I know you'd rather see me [C]gone than to [G]see me the [Am]way that
I [C]am when I am in your [D]life anyway.

[Em]Next [D]door the [C]TV [G]flashes [Em]blue [Em/B]frames on the
[Am]wall. It's a [G]come[D]dy of [C]errors you [G]see, it's [Em]about
taking a [B]fall. [Em]To [D]vanish [C]to ob[G]livi[Em]on is [Em/B]easy
to [Am]do, and I [G]try to [D]be, but you [C]know me [G]I'll come [Am]back
when you [C]want me [G]to. [D7] Do you [G]miss [D]me, [C]miss
[G]miser[Am]y like you [C]say you [G]do?

Between the Bars

Important : E Smith seems to be tuned 1 key under normal (D G C F A D) so
the chords name indicates only the position : in fact, for the bass player, an Am is a Gm but its
easier to play for guitarists !

hard to say of Elliott plays tuned -1 
or with a capo on the 3rd,at least here are the real chords name..

BbM7 A Gm EbM7 x4
Cm D Gm Bb C#x2 Fm Bbm Eb Ab 
break Eb F Gm (not sure of that one) 
end : Bb C#x2 Fm Bbm Eb Ab...

G F F Em Cm then the same as the beginning ad lib... FYI -- to play "say yes" , your guitar must be tuned one key down : i mean D G C F A D. then G is 320033 Dsus4/F# is 200033 Em is 022033 C9 is 032033 A is 003330 the tune in the end must be played on the C string : the real notes are c c# d d# d c ------ Needle In The Hay "my friend holly and i are starting up a webpage for hard-to-find indie tabs... i just did a semi-decent tab of the chord progressions of "needle in the hay".. i'm sure the layout is all screwed up when i paste it into an email, but if you can decipher it, by all means, it's yours. and if any of you have submissions of any kind, please email them to me at yoda90210@aol.com... like i said, we're starting this page from scratch. we need all the tabs we can get to build a decent foundation for the page. lv, susie." --------- "needle in the hay" by elliott smith off the kill rock stars lp "elliott smith" worked by susie (yoda90210@aol.com) my firstest internet tab. this song is absolutely beautiful.. it feels so cheap to have tabbed it and ruined in in a sense, but for the rest of you kids that play music on the streets like me, its hopefully a big help. the strumming is 4/4 but the chord changes syncopated, so if you have the record, be sure to play along so you fully get it..there are some subtle chord changes too, it's not the same progression throughout the song.. intro: F C Em A F C F C Em A F C F///C///Em///A///////// A/////C/////F///// A///////////////C/////F///// F C F C Em A Your hand on his arm... blah blah charm around his neck..etc A C F A Needle in the hay... needle in the hay...etc. F C F C Em A F C F C Em A F A F C Em A He's wearing your clothes, head down to toes a reaction to you..etc A C F A Needle in the hay... needle in the hay...etc. F A F C Em A F A F C Em A F A F C Em F F G Em A F A..
