 It's so hard to find Aimee Mann tabs on the net so I thought I'd tab one of her
songs of her last album. This is a great song called "humpty dumpty" and it's
track 1 of Aimee's "lost in space" LP.

Lyrics - 

Verse 1:
         say you were split you were split in fragments
         and none of the pieces will talk to you
         wouldn't you want to be who you haven't 
         well maybe I want that too

Chorus:
         better take the keys and drive forever
         staying won't put these futures back together
         all the perfect drugs and super heroes
         wouldn't be enough to bring me up to zero

Verse 2:
         baby you're great, you've been more than patient
         pretending it's not a catastrophe
         but I'm not the girl you once put your faith in
         just someone who looks like me

 repeat chorus

Bridge:
         so get out while you can
         get out while you can cos baby I'm pouring quick sand
         and sinking is all I had planned so better just go

Solo

 repeat chorus

Outro:
         all the king's horses and all the king's men
         couldn't put baby together again (repeat)



 There we are, hope you enjoy!

Hi
I was bummed this version wasn't accepted, I worked very concientiously to get it exactly right, so I dont this its inaccurate. If you rejected it because you have a similar tab, I'd like to point out the existing tab of "Humpty Dumpty" has numerous errors. Whoever wrote it seems to have an aversion to minor chords, and you can see in several places, if you compare our tabs, the existing tab you have errorneously puts Fmajor in place of Dminor, G major in place of Eminor, in another section puts Dmajor where there should be a Dminor. Here are the errors I feel I have corrected wtih my tab:

This is the tab/chord chart you already have for Humpty Dumpty/Aimee Mann

Intro:
(x4) 1 + 2 + 3 + 4
Em Em Am Am <<Verse:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
Em Em Am Am (x3) <<< Same problem, this is wrong, it should be Am-Em. Also, the 3rd time it goes C-Em, a subtle change but if you listen its correct.
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
C C C C
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F C C (x3)
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
G G G G
Chorus:
(x4) 1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F C C
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
G G F F<<<Break:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2
F F Bb Bb Bb Bb
Bridge:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
Em Em Am Am (x2)
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F C C
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
G G G G
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
Em Em Am Am (x2)
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F C C
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
Em Em Am Am (x2)
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F F F
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
D D D D<<<< This should be Dm, with a descending pattern Dm Dm/Cbass
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
Bb Bb Bb Bb
solo:
(x2) 1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F C C
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
G G F F<<< Again, Dminor, not F major
Outro:
(same as chorus)
End:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4
F F C C<<< this is incorrect. The correct chords are Dm Dm/C bass Bb Am and end on C, not G

End on G
