There are some little fills like slides from 5/8 on the high e, but I'm sure you can figure them out. Bridge/chorus (...? I dont know what this bit is called) F C Dm Dm e:|-----5--5--------------------------|--------------------------| B:|--------------5--5-(5)/6--6-----6--|-----6-----6--6--6--6--6--| G:|-----------------------------------|--------------------------| D:|--3-----3--------------------------|--------------------------| A:|-----------3-(3)-3---3/5-(5)-8--5--|--5-----5-------5---5-----| E:|-----------------------------------|--------------------------| Dm Dm e:|----------------------------|----------------------------| B:|-----6-----6--6--6--6/8--8--|-----6-----6--6--6--6p5--6--| G:|----------------------------|----------------------------| D:|----------------------------|----------------------------| A:|--5-----5-------5---5-------|--5-----5-------5--------5--| E:|----------------------------|----------------------------| Dm e:|----------------------------| B:|-----6-----6--6--6--6/8-(8)-| G:|----------------------------| D:|----------------------------| A:|--5-----5-------5---5----8--| E:|----------------------------| Play those nifty five bars once, then go back to the intro riff, and then the verse riff some more. Then John does his little solo... it's a pretty simple solo but I dont want to type it out now... if you desperately need it then send me a NICE, FRIENDLY email, and ask politely =) If you dont want to bug me, then just improvise a little in D minor, it'll probably sound better anyway. That's it, pretty simple. The hardest part is getting the right rhythm for the high notes and the bass notes. The chords are above the bars, and this is how you play them, dont just use normal chords because these barres sound better, or you can fool around with the CAGED system if you know what that is...: F [xx3565] C [x3555x] Dm [x5776x] Dm7 [x5756x] If you prefer strumming and chord stuff, I will write the chords above the lyrics... but someone has to help me out with the lyrics some, I cant make much sense of anthony's mumbling. =] Comments & corrections are welcome, but be gentle this is my first tab. And if you used this tab could you tell me, I want to get an idea of how many people read these things... Good luck, Wim. sirnick@hotmail.com lyrics Scar tissue that I wish you saw Sarcastic mister know it all Close your eyes and I'll kiss you ícause With the birds Iíll share With the birds Iíll share This lonely view With the birds Iíll share This lonely view Push me up against the wall Young Kentucky girl in a push-up bra Falliní all over myself To lick your heart and taste your health ícause With the birds Iíll share This lonely view... Blood loss in a bathroom stall Southern girl with a scarlet drawl Wave good-bye to ma and pa ícause With the birds Iíll share With the birds Iíll share This lonely view With the birds Iíll share This lonely view Soft spoken with a broken jaw Step outside but not to brawl Autumnís sweet we call it fall Iíll make it to the moon if I have to crawl and With the birds Iíll share This lonely view... Scar tissue that I wish you saw Sarcastic mister know it all Close your eyes and Iíll kiss you ícause With the birds Iíll share With the birds Iíll share This lonely view With the birds Iíll share
