SONG: "Matches"/"I'm Actual"
ARTIST: The Format
ALBUM: Dog Problems
TABBED BY: Brandon Karcic

Played in standard tuning, but tuning it down is possible. I like to play it a 
full step down, to make the high notes in "I'm Actual" more singable.

Intro:
C - C/B - Am - C/B

C    C/B       Am  C/B  
Ashes to ashes, some dust on the dash

C    C/B   Am  C/B
I got my cigarettes

  Fmaj7    Am    D7    Am         
But I can't find the fire, it's calming me down

C  C/B  Am C/B

C       C/B       Am     C/B 
I was just out on a night with my friends

C      C/B      Am      C/B  
You are still out on a night with your friends

               Fmaj7     Am         D7            Am           C        C/B    Am   C/B
And you don't seem to tire when I'm not around


G                                    F                            C        C/B    Am   C/B
I'm under the tunnel, I'm holding my breath

C        C/B    Am   C/B

C                             C/B               Am               C/B
I searched every pocket that hung in the closet

         C                        C/B                    Am                   C/B
Until I found some matches in a brown leather jacket

          Fmaj7  Am           D7               Am                       C   C/B    Am   C/B
One I swore I'd never worn, but it once kept you warm


G                  F                                                 C        C/B    Am   C/B
Do you remember we made love on the floor?


              Fmaj7  Am      D7       Am
And you still haven't called

         Fmaj7                     Am              D7       Am
So I wait until they're closing the bars

 C        C/B    Am   C/B

G               F                                            C (Let this one ring)
I made a wish but the match never lit 

(That's the end of "Matches", then starts "I'm Actual")
----------------------------------------

          C
Can we take the next hour

   C/B
and talk about me

 C/B                 Am 
Talk about me, and we'll talk about me

Am                       G        C
Talk about me, and we'll only talk about me

          C 
Can we please take this hour

  C/B
and talk about me

 C/B               Am 
and my hatred for corporate magazines

Am                G
you know they don't speak to me

   F G   G  Am  C/B C
The irony is they won't speak with me

C
(I'm Actual, I'm Actual...)


VERSE 2

F     G                       Am              G
I placed you on a windowsill

F     G             Am                          G
Cut notches up and down the door

F     G                 Am                G
My surprise, I woke up one morn

F                                 G                    C (hold)
In our bed, In your place lay a note; It read:


(The next part uses simple bar chord shapes, like so.)

----A----Ab/A---G-----F#G-------

D|--7------6-----5------4----------------------------|
A|--7------7-----5------5----------------------------|
E|--5------4-----3------2----------------------------|



Am            Ab/A             G     F#/G
Baby your love it just ain't good enough

                  F                  G         C
I found sunlight six hours away

Am                      Ab/A             G         F#/G (let ring)
You watered me down 'til I drifted abound

F                     G                        C
Somewhere far from your shade


F                G              Am       G
Now I shadow my former self

F           G                Am           G
Once holy, now lonely; a chest full of


F                   G          Am                 G
holes; Red wax, it paints me unclear

                     F                            G                 
when the big hand strikes twelve

         C (let ring)
I disappear




                   Am        Ab/A                    G          F#/G
and the angels are fake and they'll lie to your face

         F             G              C
Anything to keep you away

              Am          Ab/A             G        F#/G
You watered me down 'til I drifted abound


G      G        G        G

SOLO SECTION

Am      Ab/A      G      F#/G

F   G   C

Am      Ab/A      G      F#/G



        G
It's time I accept the fact


That you on your back has buried the past


                C
Can we take the next hour

       C/B
and talk about me

 C/B                                    Am 
Talk about me, and we'll talk about me

Am                                         G                        C
Talk about me, and we'll only talk about me

                  C 
Can we please take this hour

         C/B
and talk about me

            C/B                                  Am 
and my hatred for corporate magazines

Am                                  G
you know they don't speak to me

         F   G                G       Am    C/B   C (let the last chord ring!)
The irony is they won't speak with me
