Song: Excuses Artist: Alanis Morissette Album: So-Called Chaos Tabbed by David Ward Questions, Comments, additions, complaints, whatever, email me - email@example.com I'd noticed no one had bothered to tab any of her new album yet, so here's my addition. Be nice, it's my first tab! D A G Gm Cm e 2 0 3 3 3 b 3 2 3 3 4 g 2 2 0 3 5 d 0 2 0 5 5 a x 0 2 5 3 E x x 3 3 3 If you listen to the album version, there's no recognizable strumming pattern, however this version is meant to be played accoustically. You can just strum the chords, but I recommend you make a quiet finger-picking pattern for the first verse and then strum starting with the chorus. Just do what feels right to the mood of the song. Intro D D Verse I D A Why no one will help me G A I'm too dumb I'm too smart D A They'll not understand me G A I am lonely they'll hate me D A And there is not enough time G A It's too hard to help me D A And god wants me to work G A No resting no lazy Chorus I D A Gm D These excuses how they served me so well Gm They've kept me safe D They've kept me stoic Cm D They've kept me locked in my own cell Verse II D A I'm too far from home G A It takes far too much energy D A And I cannot afford to G A No one will ever see me Chorus I Chorus II D A Gm D These excuses how they're so familiar Gm They've kept me blocked D They've kept me small Cm D They've kept me safe inside my shell Bridge C G Bringing this into the light D Shakes their foundation A And it clears my side C G Now my imagination D Is the only thing that limits A C The bar that is raised to the heights Verse III D A No one can have it all see G A I have to they want me to D A And I can't let them down G A I'll never be happy Chorus I Chorus II Outro D A G A D A G A D
