Elliot Smith - A Fond Farewell
Tuning: 1/2 step down (E♭-A♭-D♭-G♭-B♭-E♭)

PLEASE comment or email me if you think something is wrong.

NOTES:
1. I wrote another tab for this about a year ago with only chords. I added the intro and 
corrected other small mistakes on this one.
2. I would love if someone figured out the hammer-on's and pull-offs that i missed.
3. At times, there are two different guitar parts, but they play together during the 
verse and chorus.

tabbed by: moveshhh9@gmail.com
credit to: grptertius@yahoo.com for fitting the words with the chords

All Chords - gave both open and barre chords. elliott uses barre chords but open are 
much easier to learn.

Notes for the intro:
1. timing isn't correct, easier to read this way. easy to figure out yourself
2. h = hammer-on, p = pull-off, / = slide

Am    C     G      Em   (x3)

Am    C


Verse 1:

G                    C           G
The litebrite's now black and white
           Am                      Em
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Bm                  C
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
Am                        C
The only maker that you'd want to meet
Em                 C        G
The dying man in a living room
        Am             Em
Whose shadow paces the floor
Bm                    C
He'll take you out any open door


Chorus:

Am             C
This is not my life
             G
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                C
It's not what I'm like
             G                  Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                      C
Who couldn't get things right
   G                  Em
A fond farewell to a friend

Guitar 2
Am     C


Verse 2:
G                     C        G
He said really I just wanna dance
         Am                         Em
Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance
Bm                    C
I can deal with some psychic pain
Am                    C
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Em                 C        G
Veins full of disappearing ink
Am               Em
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Bm                     C
Disconnecting from the missing link


Chorus:
Am             C
This is not my life
             G
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                C
It's not what I'm like
             G                  Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                      C
Who couldn't get things right
   G                  Em
A fond farewell to a friend

Guitar 2
Am     C


Verse 3:

G            C        G
I see you're leaving me
Am                    Em
And taking up with the enemy
Bm                      C
The cold comfort of the in between
Am                   C
A little less than a human being
Em                   C        G
A little less than a happy high
Am                  Em
A little less than a suicide
Bm                       C
The only things that you really tried


Chorus:

Am             C
This is not my life
             G
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                C
It's not what I'm like
             G                   Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                     C
Who couldn't get things right
   G                   Em
A fond farewell to a friend
Am             C
This is not my life
             G                  Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
