Tabs/Chords Revisited - Phoenix - 08-15-2013 10:41 AM

Since the great Spam disaster all the Harvey Danger tabs, chords, sheet music, riffs and ditties have been lost. For my part, I thought we should try to keep the love alive via variable standards of imitation!

The king of the swinging moves is back in town

as he pounds a silver hammer, drops revolutionary grammar
E D
concerning the burning of city hall and urban sprawl and decay


Chorus
A F#m E
Farewell to the days of having it both ways
D
Hell is other people, some people never learn
A F#m
When optimism fails and my cooler head prevails
E D
I will meet you at the point of diminishing returns

Ive found these, not opened this file since... 2005...

Quote:Intro- Em Em/A Em (pick)
Louder intro- Em A (strum)

Em
We named the constellations
A


We drew the maps and we divided up the nations
B Em
Indulged our fetishes and fascinations
B Em Em/A
And here we thought that's all we ever wanted
Em
We stayed up late
A
Connecting names with faces
Em
Kept ourselves entertained
B C
Memorizing dates and places
G B
Dates and places, dates and places
Em A x4
Guitar solo (it's a pentatonic play around the 7th fret D string)

Em
We put the moon in orbit
A
And set the tides in motion
We paved and lit the roads
That joined the cities that we constructed
You bent the truth
But I didn't mind
'Cause we made the rules
B C
And every way that we could break them
G B
We could break them, we could break them

Em A x2 C A x4
Keyboard solo
Em A x2
Em
We named the constellations
A Em A
We drew the maps and we divided up the nations
Em A
And now I'm so tired
And now I'm so tired
Em
"You go to sleep" she said
A C Cmaj7
"And I will be there when you wake up"
