PORCELAIN  by BETTER THAN EZRA
off the album DELUXE
transcription by Scott Josselyn (sjosselyn@aol.com)

This song is pretty easy once you get the hang of the rhythm and 
flourishes. In addition to the flourishes that I've tried to notate, 
they sometimes use Cadd4 as A passing chord in the G/B-C-F/A passages 
between the C and F/A chords. I don't hear it in the song but I also 
like to throw a Fmaj7/A into the F/A vamps sometimes. There is also 
some bass hammer-on  played over the F/A chord soemtimes that I couldn't
figure out.

i wasn't sure which one of you requested porcelain at the end of your 
killer inside tab, but here is what i got (i saw them in pheonix on 
tuesday 
and stood three feet from griffin so i could see what he was playing):
 
Standard Tuning:            it might sound good with open chords,
                                      tuned to Eb:
 
    Ab   Db   Gb   Bb             Ab   Db   Gb   Bb
e:--4----4----2----1--       eb:--0----2----3----2--
b:--4----6----2----3--       bb:--2----3----3----4--
g:--5----6----3----3--       gb:--2----2----0----4--
D:--6----6----4----3--       Db:--2----0----0----4--
A:--6----4----4----1--       Ab:--0----0----2----2--
E:--4---------2-------       Eb:------------3-------
 
 
Intro: Ab Db Gb (x2)
 
Db                Bb
Hey, you've got a lot of nerve
Ab                           Gb
To show your face 'round here
Db                Bb
Hey, you've got a lot of nerve
Ab                        Gb
To dredge up all my fears
 
Ab                  Gb
Well I wish I could shake some sense into you
Ab                  Gb
And walk out the door
 
         Db      Ab            Gb
But your skin is like porcelain
          Db      Ab            Gb
Yeah your skin is like porcelain
 
Db             Bb
Just the other day I felt
Ab               Gb
I had you by the strings
Db             Bb
Just the other day I felt
Ab               Gb
We could be everything
 
Ab             Gb
But now when I see you, you're somebody else
Ab                  Gb
With somebody's eyes
 
         Db      Ab            Gb
And your skin is like porcelain
          Db      Ab            Gb
Yeah your skin is like porcelain
 
Ab Db Gb
        I don't know what I'm sayin'
Ab Db Gb
        I don't know if you're there
Ab Db Gb
        In the words you are fadin'
Ab Db Gb                Db Ab Gb
        Do you even care_______?
Db Ab Gb
oooooooh
 
Ab                  Gb
Well I wish I could kill you, savor the sight
Ab               Gb
Get into my car, drive into the night
Ab            Gb
Then lie as I scream to the heavens above
Ab                 Gb
That I was the last one you ever loved_____
 
 Db      Ab             Gb
(skin is like) porcelain
          Db      Ab            Gb
Yeah your skin is like porcelain
          Db      Ab            Gb
Yeah your skin is like porcelain
          Db      Ab            Gb
Yeah your skin is like porcelain
        Ab Db Gb
Yeah___
