Tabbed by: cybergeek_G
Email: cybergeek_g@hotmail.com

Tuning: E A D G B E

Note: Due to the nature of the vocal rhythm (which is highly syncopated),
this TAB is organized in a manner that is easier to read.  Each vocal line
is divided to correspond to each line of music.  I advise that you listen to
the song for the rhythm of the vocals.


Intro
-----

C - Dm - Am - Am (x2)


Verse
-----

C - Dm - Am - Am (x4)

Smeared black ink...
your palms are sweaty
And i'm barely listening
to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath


Interlude
---------

F - C - G - G (x4)

Where I am...
[A line without vocals]
Where I am...
[A line without vocals]

Verse
-----

C - Dm - Am - Am (x6)

I'll wear my badge...
a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
That tells your new friends
i am a visitor here... I am not permanent
And the only thing
keeping me dry is


Chorus
------

(Where I am)[Repeats throughout chorus]

F - C - G - G (x4)

You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key explaining that i am just visiting
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving


Bridge
------

C - C - Dm - Dm

[No vocals]

G - G - Am - Am

D.C. sleeps alone tonight

C - Dm - Am - Am (x8)

[No vocals for 8 lines]

Chorus
------

(Where I am)[Repeats throughout chorus]

F - C - G - G (x10)

You seem so so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key explaining that i am just visiting
And i am finally seing why i was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving

The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
And send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving


Outro
-----

F - C - G - G (x2)
F

sounds right to me. its far too slow to strum the verses, i just arpeggiate the chords then strum the verses and go into double time strumming for the ending.
Good tab!

this tab is spot on! kudos!

i kinda do the same thing liamsanders does. take it easy through the chords because you're changing chords every couple beats. then pick up the strumming rhythm through the verses.

I want to post or [tab]
