Black Balloon By Goo Goo Dolls

Tabber - Jake Chen

Bored. Did tab, don't know harmonics in beginning. 
here chords, no strum pattern figure out by self.
have fun.

DADADD tuning, but put it one half step down if 
you want to be accurate to studio recording.

Verse - Here are they lyrics.

1 -  Baby's black balloon makes her fly
     I almost fell into that hole in your life
     And you're not thinking about tomorrow

2 - A thousand other boys could never reach you
    How could I have been the one
    I saw the world spin beneath you

3 - You know the lies they always told you 
    And the love you never knew
    What's the things they never showed you

Pre Chorus - Bass plays something different.

1 - Cause you were the same as me
    But on your knees

2 - And scatter like ice from the spoon
    That was your womb

3 - That swallowed the light from the sun
    Inside your room

Chorus - Play three times then riff.

- Comin' down the world turned over
  And angels fall without you there
  And I go on as you get colder

the tuning is right on! Thank you so much! Yeah I'm not exactly sure about the tab itself, but with these chords I can figure it out on my own, thanks!

heres the intro, its all harmonics. and its 100% correct. add a lil delay and reverb to get the right effect.
