Elliott Smith - "Looking Over My Shoulder"
--------------------------
Tabbed by Hunter MacDermut
--------------------------
As 
usual there are a couple of guitars here, one playing 
chords and one 
establishing the melody. I've just lumped 
them together so you can play it 
by yourself. So the chords 
are approximately the actual chord he's playing 
combined 
with the melody note.

F¿ - 1x0101

Intro: D DM7 Gsus4 G Bb F A7/E 
D

Verse:
       D             D/F G
Wiped out in the city slick
 B7         
          Em            G7     C
Another sick rock 'n roller acting like a 
dick
        B7
Needin' cash
Em      G7          C
Burnin' through the 
trash
     G                D/F#
That piles up in this place
    F¿         
Am       Am/G F
And fills up behind my empty face
        Dm              Bb 
     F   (A7sus4 A7)
Full of things that I'm not to do

Chorus (repeat intro 
progression):

You come over with all of your friends
And all their opinions 
I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my shoulder
Bookin' away with 
nowhere to go

Verse:

I run down to the corner lot
It's forty-five past 
two
I almost forgot to show
Got a date to make with Mr. so 'n so
After 
which
I wonÕt care when you all start to bitch
And moan about bein' 
alone

Chorus:

You come over with all of your friends
And all their 
opinions I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my shoulder
Bookin' away 
with nowhere to go

Bridge:

E                             Gm
Well can't you 
just leave me alone
Bm      Bm/A   Bm/G#                      G              
           Gm
You've already thrown all the sticks and stones you had to 
send my way
Well can't you just leave it at that
And spare us both the 
bother cause I just bounce back 
Anyway

Verse:

I got nothin' that I want 
to do
More than make another sonnet fuck you to play
Whenever you make my 
life clichŽ
So to fit in some little box with the all the labeled shit
You 
would say to keep confusion away

Chorus:

You come over with all of your 
friends
And all their opinions I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my 
shoulder
Bookin' away with nowhere to go

You come over with all of your 
friends
And all their opinions I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my 
shoulder
Bookin' away
