Going to the funeral and I'm never coming back

Tell Me Now (Do You Really Love Me)
version from Artistic Vice

The bass plays a C on top of the Am chord. You can play this chord to get that sound:
X-3-2-2-1-0 or just a regular Am works too.

G Em
You'll never know dear
Am D
The tears that I cried.

(chords keep repeating)
I don't wanna wait, girl,
Till the day that I die,
Tell me now, oh
Do you really love me?

I don't understand
The things that you do.
You promised you'd make me
The king of the zoo.
Tell me now, oh
Do you really love me?

C G
In this world it's hard to find a friend.
How come?
C D
But if this really is love then lets get it on, on, ooo

I wanna know dear
The way that you feel.
I'm on a roll girl
My heart's like a wheel.
Tell me now, oh
Do you really love me?

If I can trust
The look in your eye
But if your kiss
Could be a lie
Tell me now, oh
Do you really love me?

In this world it's hard to find a friend.
How come?
But if this really is love then lets get it on, on, ooo

Tell me now.
Do you really love me?
Do you really love me?
Do you really love me?

(Chords: G Em Am D)

When they said that love was dead,
They were just playing with your head.
Love is real.
It's the way that I feel.
I love you.
Do you really love me?
Do you really love me?
Do you really love me?
Tell me now

Ending: G C G D G

 Well it's been said before but you are a GOD my friend, I can't thank you enough for this, I've been dying to get covering this as a corny little hawaiian ukelele number for ages. I knew it'd be simple but I'm awful at picking out chords. Anyway thanks

Here's tabs for "Lost And Found". I still have a couple of "huh?"s for some of the lyrics. Does anyone know if the lyric in Rock This Town is Hollywood "whore" or "horror"? Both make perfect sense... I had "whore" at first, but I changed, because "horrors" is a word that shows up in a few songs.

Sometimes things don't line up right when posting tabs. If it's really bad let me know. I can also email the MSWord doc to anyone who wants a more printable version.

The first part of this post is a repeat from an earlier thread (Lost and Found Tabs Part One in Fan Forums). Moderators can delete that old thread if its taking up too much space. I thought it would be better to have them all in the same tab thread.

Rock This Town

Note: C/F lick X-X-5-5-5-X to X-X-7-5-6-X and back


E (lick: e-e-g-g#-b-b-c#-e)
Gonna rock, gonna rock
Gonna rock this town tonight
Gonna rock, gonna rock
Gonna rock this town tonight

A (lick: a-a-c-c#-e-e-f#-e)
Well I love that marijuana
It makes me feel so high
Tell all your troubles goodbye
E
Somehow escape the lie of the Hollywood horror

C D
And Ill never get to heaven
G C C/F C (see note at top)
If Ive been there before
And all my dreams are broken
Im a madman at your door
And I cried a million tears
I may never see her again
Im more dead than alive
In her many spacious memories

Gonna rock, gonna rock
Gonna rock this town tonight
Gonna rock, gonna rock
Gonna rock this town tonight

Well I love that marijuana
It makes me feel so high
Tell all your troubles goodbye
Somehow escape the lie of the Hollywood horror

She was so pretty
We were kissing and everything
I had a picture of her
She was a foxy girl so cool
And the macaroni and cheese
Always seemed to please
And every day (Huh)
As they got down on their knees

Singing rock, gonna rock
Gonna rock this town tonight
Gonna rock, gonna rock
Gonna rock this town tonight

And I love that marijuana
It makes me feel so high
Troubles goodbye
Somehow escape the lie of the Hollywood horror

Were downtown
In the straight and narrow way
And what did we find
A real good time Austin, Texas USA
Let freedom ring
Everybody say
Linda McCartney is dead
Thats what the TV said

Lets rock, were gonna rock
Werre gonna rock this town tonight
Were gonna rock, were gonna rock
Were gonna rock this town tonight

Well I love that marijuana
Makes me feel so high
Tell all your troubles goodbye
Somehow escape the lie of the Hollywood horror

I took my guitar
To the heavy metal school
I told them all about
The golden rule
They just laughed in my face
And called me a space case
The last of the human race
The last of the human race

Lets rock, were gonna rock
Werre gonna rock this town tonight
Were gonna rock, were gonna rock
Were gonna rock this town tonight

And I love that marijuana
Makes me feel so high
Tell all your troubles goodbye
Somehow escape the lie of the Hollywood horror

E7
Rock! Rock! Rock! Rock! Rock!
Rock! Rock! Rock! Rock! Rock! Rock!
Rock!

Try To Love

For C7/Bb bass try this chord X-1-2-0-1-0 or just regular C7

C G G7
In my fantasy
You were there with me
I turned towards the mirror
And theres nothing there

I sit in a chair
Washing my underwear
Thinking all along
You were of good cheer

F G C C7/Bb bass
And I am going to try to love
And I am going to rise above

So begins the star
Theres a spark in my heart
But you just stayed away from my memory
I try to get it right
Lay down a song
But theres something wrong with my song

And I am going to try to love
And I am going to rise above

Baby youre the one
Same as any other
And I really tried
But Ive been denied

Crazy as it seems
In the hall of broken dreams
Till theres nothing left
But an empty eggshell

And I am going to try to love
And I am going to rise above

Saw you in my movie
Like you really cared
I turned towards the mirror
And theres nothing there
 
You were on my mind
I tried to unwind
To a better atmosphere of good cheer

And I am going to try to love
And I am going to rise above
I am going to try to love
And I am going to rise above


The Beatles

C F C
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
(bass lick at God bless them: c-c-Bb-Bb-a-a-g-g-f)

When I was born in 61
They already had a hit
And they worked so ha-a-ard
And they made it Joe
But they really were very good
They deserve all their success
And they earned it, yes they did
They didnt buy their respect
And everybody wanted to be like them
Everybody wanted to be the Beatles
And I really wanted to be like him
But he died
The legendary rock group
Its history now to read
Like a magical fairy tale
Thats hard to believe
But it really did happen
Four lads that shook the world
God bless them for what they done


Lonely Song

G A
Well you heard about the time
Am7 D
I climbed the Empire State Building
G A
And you heard about the time
Am7 D
I was in the insane asylum


G C
But I bet you never knew
G C
What I went through
G C
And what I had to do
D G
Just to bring you - a lonely song

Instrumental break: G C G

Though I try to do whats right
Every day and every night
And when I think Ive won the fight
The monster comes back again

And I bet you never knew
What I went through
And what I had to do
Just to bring you - a lonely song

Instrumental break: G C G G7

C
If you listen very hard
You can hear the desperation
G
Of a sad and broken heart
D
My heart

Well you heard about the times
But not all of it is true
And youve read the magazines
Ive been wounded by folklore

But I bet you never knew
What I went through
And what I had to do
Just to bring you - a lonely song

Well Ill tell you right now
Just to set the record straight
I never meant no harm
Or to generate so much hate

Cos I bet you never knew
What I went through
And what I had to do
Just to bring you - a lonely song

G7

Foolin


C Cm
I see no reason why
F Fm
Only that I guess that I
G Gm C (lick: c-b-a-a-b-c-c-b-a-b)
Dont really know what Im doing

A letter that never arrived
Only that I could survive
That I might see whatever is going on

C F G F (4 times)

You took my heart away
Like an act in a play
But I was just another standby
In your soap opera
And now I fear that I
Cant change to compromise
You had me all along
And you were foolin

This love could never doubt
I just wanna sit and pout
Im feeling as if youre leaving me out
Just what am I talking about
Turning away from the cow
As if your golden(Huh) led me to a shallow grave

You took my heart away
Like an act in a play
But I was just another standby
In your soap opera
And now I feel that I
Cant change to compromise
You had me all along
And you were foolin

And now I dare to say
It wouldnt happen anyway
Just a love to carry me through back to you
They say that love is blind
But I can see you all the time
Whether or not you think of me in your mind

You took my heart away
Like an act in a play
I was just another standby
In your soap opera
And now I fear that I
Cant change to compromise
You had me all along
And you were foolin

And when I lay me down
To go to sleep
I cant find you anywhere in my dream
And now I venture out
Just another night on the town
It brings me down to feel so happy

You took my heart away
Like an act in a play
I was just another standby
In your soap opera
And now I fear that I
Cant change to compromise
You had me all along
And you were foolin
Foolin, foolin, foolin, foolin
Foolin, foolin, foolin


Haunt

C#m Dm C D
Those you love, how they haunt
Bb C Dm
Everyones in love

A familiar face to comfort you
What they say and do
Hey girl, can you see me now
Guess I up and died
Remember me like a clear blue sky
Theres no reason why

Gm
And no matter where she goes
C#m Dm (lick: d-e-f-e-d)
Ill be loving her so

As I pass through this world
Into the great unknown

She was the virgin queen
From a magazine
She played with my imagination
Fascinating my brain
So pretty I just had to stop by
She made the sweetest cherry pie
I caught her once with the look of love
Like a fool I turned aside

And no matter where she goes
Ill be loving her so
As I pass through this world
Into the great unknown

Fills my heart with deep regret
Its not over yet
How she laughed at my stupid jokes
Every time we met
Kind of like the Dating Game
Or the Titanic
It was weird and it was strange
I was so lovesick

And no matter where she goes
Ill be loving her so
As I pass through this world
Into the great unknown

If I reach you from beyond the grave
Maybe you were saved
Just another day for the depraved
No matter what they say
The pregnant lady once said to me
Whats it all about
I said I guess youll never know
And I wished that I could diein my heart

And no matter where she goes
Ill be loving her so
As I pass through this world
Into the great unknown


Squiggly Lines

G C
If you had seen her youd think it was funny
G C
She was so passionate, made everything sunny
G C
She was dancing all the time
G C
Never spent a dime
G C
Always feeling fine
G C
Always an uphill climb

I thought Id like to get to know her
I thought Id like to get to go with her
But the darkness of the night
Blew out my candlelight
My head was full of fright
What a horrible tragedy plight

And when my ego was shattered
She said it didnt really matter
She said shes got her own boy trained
She said she didnt want one who was not tamed
She said my love was down the drain
And she hated Songs of Pain

I went out to her house foaming at the mouth
She called me a dirty louse
I was crying all the time
See the monkey shine
Talking to myself
Staring into tears

Country Song

G
Well its been a long time since Ive had a drink of alcohol
C
Since the babies grieved and grandma lost her leg
G
There aint no sense in dragging the lake anymore
D G
There are bats in the belfry and theres liquor in the store

Well Ive had a look or two at her figure at times
That girl in her tight-wearing bra driving me out of my mind
And there aint no sense remembering nothing for score
Cause my dad fought the Japs in the war and
and then there aint any more

C
If I was thinking about the Lisa (Huh)
G
How she tempted me in the basement
D G
Recording every noise I made
C G
There werent no sense in what they had to say
D
Cause theyre trying to kill me
G
And they say its judgment day

G
When I think of her lips, the way she had em at the store that night
C G
The undertaker was waiting in the parking lot
C G
She told me Id be going to find myself in a desperate way
D G
It was the best moment of my life

C
If you think that theyll find you
G
It really doesnt matter
C G
Ill try my best to save you from the flatter
C D
There aint no sense in crying cause Im gonna win in the end
 G C G
And youll all be sitting around having a good time


Mrs. Daniel Johnston

C G
Its gonna be a long night
C
Shes the one we all love
F
And weve always thought much of her
C G
Seen her picture on the wall

C
Shes the one we all dream of
F
Shes the one that we inspire
C G7 C
Shes the girl whos always been on our mind

F
Marilyn Monroe, youve what it takes
G
And I love you

C
Shes not really dead
F
She lives in my head
C G7
Shes the girl who makes me feel light
C
And shes been on my TV
F
So many precious times
C G7 C
I just love dear Marilyn so much

F G
Marilyn Monroe, I love so much all my life


C F
Some sweet day, well meet on that shore
C G7 C
And Marilyn Monroe will be mine


History Of Our Love

Two ways of playing the chorus chords

A X-0-2-2-2-0
A/G# 4-X-2-2-2-0
A/G 3-X-2-2-2-0
A/F# 2-X-2-2-2-0

Or

A X-0-2-2-2-0
Amaj7 X-0-2-1-2-0
A7 X-0-2-0-2-0
A6 X-0-4-2-2-0

A Em A G A F A G D
(bass note lick: f-g-a-b-c-d-e-f)

She was apart from me
I found another girl for a while
It didnt work out
I was just a loser
Poor loser

A Amaj7/G# A7/G A/F# F G A
Love, it let me down
Like a nightmare, you werent around
Love, there was none
Probably somewhere else, there was no fun

No one was there
I thought whats the use
Till I found out
Id lost her again
Its a sin

Love, it disappointed me
I thought it was true, it was taken from me
Love, oh cant you see
Someone lied to me, oh how I suffered

If theres any justice
Let it be forever
Some fear that justice
Could be never
But its ever

Love, it kept me going
To make it through my broken life
Love, I had a chance
But it was gone before I knew it

She must have been watching
As I walked all through the town
Looking for love without knowing
As everybody put me down
Like a clown

Love, its around
For any fool who believes
Love, its beautiful
It relieves a saddened heart

I saw her long ago
Pretty flowers in her hair
She worked at the funeral
I wondered if I could get a discount
On a mount

Love, you werent my friend
And I remember you from way back when
Love, you were my shining star
And I havent really gone that far Ive looked at death (Huh)

Rock Around the Christmas Tree

E
Rock and roll round the Christmas tree
Everything is you and me
B
Rockin the night away
Rockin the night away
E
Gonna rock the Christmas tree
Everything is you and me
B
Rockin the night away
Rockin the night away
D F Em A
Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
(repeat)

Rockin the night away
(repeat)

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da


Its Impossible

These chord voicings imitate the ukulele and bass progression nicely, especially if you do a little slide up to each chord.

G6 X-X-5-7-5-7
Em7 X-7-5-7-5-7 or X-7-X-5-7-5
Am7 X-0-5-5-5-5
D9 X-X-0-5-5-5
D13 X-X-0-7-7-7
C6 X-3-5-5-5-5
D7sus4 X-5-7-5-8-5


G6 Em7 Am7 D9 D13
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 | (no D13 on last time)
Its impossible
Cant make my mind up
Its impossible
You cant make your mind up
Its impossible
But I wish it were so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

Its impossible
How can we get back?
Its impossible
Maybe a time warp
Its impossible
But I wish it were so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

C6
Were you mine to hold
To let you disappear
G6
I just cant allow it
C6
And if I saw you dear
D7sus4
All my dreams would come true

(chords as before)
But its impossible
The miles between us
Its impossible
Its cold and Im locked up
Its impossible
But I wish it was true hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo, hoo

Its impossible
The years have gone by
Youre impossible
Youre married and you got kids
Its impossible
But I wish it were so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

You have given me a light so strong
I will carry on
But its no good without you
And if I made a vow
Let me say it now
I love, love, love, love you

But its impossible
Were so really far away
Its impossible
I wouldnt know what to say anyway
Its impossible
But I wish it were so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

Its impossible
I guess its impossible
Its impossible
Seems like its impossible
Its impossible
But I wish it were so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

I didnt know what to do
With a girl like you
But you made me so happy
And I am still alive
But you are just a jive
How could love be so unreasonable

Its impossible
Cant make my mind
Youre impossible
You cant make your mind up
Its impossible
But I wish it were so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

 Its impossible
How can we get back?
Its impossible
Maybe a time warp
Its impossible
But I wish it was so ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho


Wishing You Well

These chords sound pretty nice for the Wishing You Well part

Ebmaj7 X-6-8-7-X-X or X-6-5-7-X-X or X-X-1-3-3-X or X-X-1-3-3-3
D7   X-5-7-5-X-X or X-5-4-5-X-X or X-X-0-2-1-X or X-X-0-2-1-2
G7   3-5-3-4-6-3

G F G
You said youd be at a certain place
G F G
I waited there till the end of time
Ebmaj7 D7
Wishing you well
G G7
As I spent time in hell

You said youd make sure I was alright
But you jumped on a plane and left me in flight
Seeing you off
Almost knowing youd return

Someone said you had gotten a divorce
I was thinking Id be next in line of course
Hoping youd be mine
Rejection is what I fear

Em
It makes a world of difference
Oh, how I love you
Em
No matter what they say of us
Oh, how I love you
Dm G
Because I love you, youre the one
Dm G
Who brought me back to life

You said there was a time for us
Somehow that day has always been
Freaked out on love
Reliving old memories

There was a love much stronger than us both
Only we two could know
Wishing you well
As I spend time in hell

Weve been apart for so long
As the hours pass and the years disappear
Eating all the time
Feeding the monster inside

It makes a world of difference
Oh, how I love you
No matter what they say of us
Oh, how I love you
Because I love you, youre the one
That brought me back to life
And I love you, youre my wife
And Ive loved you all my life
And I love, youre my wife
And Ive loved all my life


Everlasting Love

I had a welcome mat
But you never came around
I left my light on
But you were nowhere to be found
I thought an afterthought
Maybe I was forgotten
Never asked me for my name
But I wasnt even in the book

C
Seems like a love that tried
F
Somehow was on our side
C
We fell in love so deeply
G7
An everlasting kind of love
C
And love was on our side
F
There was no place to hide
C
It seemed to mean so much
G7 C
An everlasting kind of love

Years ago I was at your door
Asking you for directions
You said you loved another
And I wasnt even mentioned
As I play piano
I get this eerie feeling
You were never really there
I guess I must be dreaming

Seems how I really tried
But our love was denied
Somehow it was a lie
An everlasting kind of love
Then you took me for a ride
I was so hurt inside
You smiled and then you cried
An everlasting kind of love

Mom and dad said I sure was lost
Just all the time make-believing
Just what is the difference
In my heart Im always there
How can you in the art room
You said you had to go-oh
I took it out on a shopping cart
Screaming in my mind It isnt so

Guess thats the way it goes
You seem to love, I suppose
But I was at the end of my rope
An everlasting kind of love
I cant tell you how I love
The shining stars above
With no ill thoughts about you
An everlasting kind of love

I took a walk, I was so in love
But I had nowhere to go
Everywhere I looked, I swear
I saw you in every window
Till I died inside
From being all alone
Your love carried me on
I just kept on dreaming of your love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love
And love was on our side
It seemed to mean so much
Could couldnt lost touch
An everlasting kind of love

Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
We fell in love so deeply
An everlasting kind of love
Seems like a love that tried
Somehow was on our side
What could we have done to save
An everlasting kind of love

Oh yeah, oh no, oh no, no, no

Like A Monkey in a Zoo
(thanks to Jimmy Nothin' for lyrics on the RU website)

G D C
| 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 |
I'm chained to the wall.
I have nothin' at all.
And my eyes look into the sunset
Thinkin' of better things to do,
Like a monkey in a zoo.

The days go so slow.
I don't have no friends.
Except all these people
Who want me to do tricks for them,
Like a monkey in a zoo.

C C/B Am D D7

And it could happen to you.
You could be in my place.
No it wasn't always like this,
But I never saw it comin'.

(verse chords)
I'm so alone,
But this is my home.
And the bars that surround me
Keep me from knowin' any better,
Like a monkey in a zoo.

Throw me a peanut.
Laugh and make jokes.
But I've had enough peanuts
And I'm ready to choke,
Like a monkey in a zoo

(bridge chords)
You come to look at me.
You seem so amused.
But things would look different
If you were in my shoes.

(verse chords)
I know its my fault,
But I want out.
And when I cry out
Nobody seems to understand,
Like a monkey in a zoo

You say I'm cute.
You don't know how much that hurts.
You don't know how it feels
To live in your own dirt,
Like a monkey in a zoo

(bridge chords)
And it could happen to you.
You could be in my place.
Don't let yourself slip.
Don't keep egg on your face.

(verse chords)
I used to be happy.
I cant remember those days.
But I sold my freedom
For free room and board,
Like a monkey in a zoo.

(end on G7)
