         Come    back   anothe---r  day

[Solo] played over the verse/chorus-chords


[verse 2]

I can't get to sleep

I think about the implications

Of diving in too deep

And possibly the complications

Especially at night

I worry over situations

I know will be alright

It's just overkill

[Chorus]

Day after day it reappears

Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

Ghosts appear and fade away

Ghosts appear and fade away

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
And thats about it. If u've seen the series scrubs they play this song in 
episode 1 (season 2). There he, Colin Hay, takes different chords then I've 
tabbed down here but it sounds the same anyway..so enjoy!
ps. this is my first tab so be nice ^^

Colin Hay Acoustic version of Overkill
This is an alternate tuning First and Sixth stings tuned to D.
This is a great blues slide tune, so try a slider on it after you
learn the song and have some fun. I don?t know the names of
these cords so I have numbered them. C1 =Cord #1 and so on.

D --0-- --x-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --x-- --x--
B --7-- --7-- --7-- --7-- --5-- --5-- --3-- --0-- --0--
G --0-- --7-- --0-- --6-- --0-- --4-- --4-- --7-- --6--

A --4-- --4-- --5-- --0-- --0--
D --x-- --x-- --x-- --x-- --x--

C10 C11 C12 C13 C14

Intro is C1 and C2 cords.
The intro is used as a break during the song also.

C3 C4
I can't get to sleep

C5 C6

C7 C13 C14
Day after day it reappears

C7 C8 C9
