Subject: CRD: SANTA MONICA by Everclear

here it is... lyrics and all...

i tried my best to line up all the chords with the words where the chord
changes occur, but you'll get the best idea by listening to the song...

the chords are tabbed out at the end of the tab... so....

Santa Monica
by Everclear

attempt at rhythm-

if you can't pick it up from the song, here's a valiant attempt..


G5   G5   x x x x    G5   G5   G5/E   G5   G5   x x x x

(repeat.. the x's represent muting the strings and stumming)

same basic strumming technique throughout the rest of the song

** all verses use the same progression as in verse I
*** all choruses use the same progression as in the first chorus..

Verse I -
				    G5     G5/E   G5
	   I am still living with your ghost
            	  G5/E		G5	 G5/E  G5
	   Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
	              G5/E		  D5   E5    C5
	   I don't want to be your downtime
		  C5	D5	G5
	   I don't want to be your stupid game

Verse II-
	   With my big black boots and an old suitcase
	   I do believe I'll find myself a new place
	   I don't want to be the bad guy
	   I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
	   I just want to see some palm trees
	   Go and try to shake away this disease

	   We can live beside the ocean
	   C5            D5          G5
	   Leave the fire behind
	   G5	            E5     D5
	   Swim out past the breakers
	   D5	       C5      G5
	   Watch the world die

Verse III-
	   I am still dreaming of your face
	   Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
	   I don't want to be your good time
	   I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore

Verse IV-
	   I'll walk right out into a brand new day
	   Insane and rising in my own weird way
	   I don't want to be the bad guy
	   I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
	   I just want to feel some sunshine
	   I just want to find some place to be alone

	   We can live beside the ocean
	   Leave the fire behind
	   Swim out past the breakers
	   And watch the world die

Chords used-
