                             Bled White - Elliott Smith
Tabbed by:Chris Vinkler

This is one of my favorite songs, very simple and fun to play.
RIP Elliott Smith

Tuning:Standard/Low to High EADGBe

Chords Used:

  G1  G5 Em5 Em1  C2  Em2  F  F5

Ok, here's how he plays the little sliding thing after strumming the G1 for a while.
For that little riff/chord progressions, I'm writing it as Fig 1 so as to make
writing this tab easier, and easier to read.

G1                    Fig 1
I'm a color reporter (Gross city on the 409)
G1                              Fig 1
But the city's been bled white (White city on the yellow line)
G1                      Fig 1
And the doctors orders (Drinking till destruction is just a waste of time)
G1                Fig 1                    Fig 1
Drinks all night, to take away this curse, but it makes me feel much worse.
C2       Em2
Bled whi.....ite
G1                         Fig 1
So I wait for the F-Train (White city on the yellow line)
G1                                    Fig 1
And connect through a friend of mine (White city to a friend of mine)
G1                    Fig 1
To a yesterday dream (Yesterday dream is just a waste of time)
G1                            Fig 1                    Fig 1
Because I'll have to be high, to drag the sunset down, and paint this paling town
C2        Em2
Bled whi.....ite
So here he comes with the blank expression
Am                                 C2
Especially for me because he knows I feel the same
Because happy and sad come in quick succession
Em2                       C2
I'm never going to become what you became
G1                         Fig 1
Don't you dare disturb me (Don't complicate my peace of mind)
G1                           Fig 1
While I'm balancing my past (Don't complicate my peace of mind)
G1                                 Fig 1
Because you can't help or hurt me (Fading me baby is just a wast of time)
G1                   Fig 1
Like it already has, I may not seem quite right
Fig 1
But I'm not fucked, not quite
C2        Em2
Bled whi.....ite
C2        Em2
Bled whi.....ite
