No Myth (Michael Penn)

C  Am  C  Am            F        G
So,       she says it's time she goes

                 F      G
But wanted to be sure I know

                    C       Am
She hopes we can be friends

C   Am   C  Am              F       G
I think,    yeah I guess we can say I

                    F       Em
But didn't think to ask her why

    F                    E
She blocked her eyes and drew the curtains

     Am             Am/G?  Cmaj7 ----> Am/G is 3X2210
with knots I've got yet to untie

Chorus:

               F        Am          C
What if I were Romeo in black jeans?

              F          Am          G    Cmaj7
What if I was Heathcliff it's no myth

            F
Maybe she's just looking for

G          Bb
Someone to dance with

See, it was just to soon to tell
And looking for some parallel
Can be an endless game
We, we said goodbye before hello
My secrets she will never know
And if I dig a hole to China
I'll catch the first junk to Soho

(Chorus)
Bb                        Dm
Sometime from now you'll bow to pressure

C                              Am
Some things in life you cannot measure by degrees

Bb                        Dm
I'm between the poles and the equator

C                                 E7
Don't send no private investigator to find me please

E
'less he speaks Chinese

Am            Am/G?
And can dance like Astaire overseas

Cmaj7
Okay?

(Bridge - chords are the same as the Chorus.)

(Chorus)

(Chorus)


--------

This is how I hack it out, anyway. (I think this is right... did it mostly
from memory without having my guitar here.) It's probably a little
simplified. One note: Penn plays all of his F's as barre chords in the
first position (113211) to get a richer sound, but it sounds OK if you
don't.

Someone recently requested this, so here's my version:

"No Myth"   by Michael Penn    transcribed by MH from the album "March"
---------------------------

Notes:
**  I think one of the chords in the chorus is Dm played
    at the fifth fret (557765).
*** I think MP says "on hashish" instead of "overseas"

C    Am    C    Am    C    Am    C    Am

C    Am    C    Am            F        G
So,             she says it's time she goes
                 F      G
but wanted to be sure I know
                    C      Am     C     Am

C    Am    C    Am               F       G
I         think, yeah, I guess we can say I
                    F       Em
but didn't think to ask her why
                         F        E/G#
she blocked her eyes and drew the curtains
     Am             C/G      D7/F#
with knots I've got yet to untie...

[CHORUS]
               F        Am         C
what if I were Romeo in black jeans
              F                   G
what if I was Heathcliff, it's no myth
D/F#              F           Dm**       Dm    C    Am    C    Am
maybe she's just  looking for someone to dance with

C    Am    C    Am              F       G

Middle version works best on both acoustic and electric. That's the one I'm giving 5 stars to.
