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!

There are no Sean Nelson tabs, like, anywhere. If someone could post them I'd love to be able to play them.

RE: Tabs/Chords Revisited
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"

You're alive!

We can talk about it later
But there's no later
Is there?
