Frank Black - Hang On To Your Ego
---------------------------------

Please feel free to correct any mistakes I made.  I haven't been playing
for too long, and this is my first attempt at a transcription.

intro:  G# C# C B A#
        G# D# G# D#

verse 1
-------
       G#                 D#                         G#
I know so many people who think they can do it alone

     G#                             D#               G#
They oscillate their heads and stay in the city zone

B                    F#      B
But what can ya tell them

            F#            F           C#
What can ya say that will make them defensive?


chorus
------
    D#              F    D#
So, hang on to your ego.

               F                    A#              D#
hang on, but I know that your gonna lose the fight

          G#                              D#              G#
they come home like they're peaceful, but inside their so uptight

     G#                          D#                          G#     B
they troop through their day and waste all their thoughts at night


verse 2
-------
B                 F#   B
but how can I say it

          F#             F          C#
how can I come home when I know I'm guilty

    D#              F    D#
So, hang on to your ego.

               F                    A#              D#
hang on, but I know that your gonna lose the fight

Chords before and during solo:

G# C# C B A#

G# D# G# G#

F# C# F# F#

Then repeat verse 2 and chorus


Note: I imagine that frank black plays this song with his guitar tuned
      down 1/2 step, but I hate re-tuning my guitar, so these chords
      are in standard tuning.  I play all the chords sorta like barre
      chords.
                        eadgbE
                i.E. G# 466xxx,
                     D# x688xx,
                     B  x244xx etc...

Also, the lyrics may be off a little.

kind of a cool song, but he didn't include lyrics w/cassette.
he tunes down to Eb for the record, this version is fingered in
in E which is probably closer to what he fingers.
