Song :: "Ana Ng"
Artist :: They Might Be Giants
Album :: Lincoln (1988)
Tabbed By :: Brandon Karcic
Loosely based on previous tab by KingCrimsonRHCP

My favorite TMBG song, and one of my favorite music videos too. The previous tab was
good, but I'm fairly certain this one is perfect, and can be played right along with the
track. At the end of the chorus, the "Am G C G" get one strum a piece on the beat, and 
they're a little quick. Practice it a couple times to get the movement down, and it's not too
rough. Otherwise, fun and easy song.

Standard Tuning

:: INTRO ::

Em C D
Em C D


:: VERSE 1 ::

Em                  C         D
Make a hole with a gun perpendicular
Em                    C         D
To the name of this town in a desktop globe
E                Am G    C  G
Exit wound in a foreign nation
D                        C            D
Showing the home of the one this was written for
Em                  C      D
My apartment looks upside down from there
Em                  C        D
Water spirals the wrong way out the sink
E                   Am  G     C G
And her voice is a backwards record
D                      C      D
It's like a whirlpool and it never ends


:: CHORUS ::

G    C        D                       C
Ana Ng and I are getting old and we still haven't walked
G           Bb               C    D
In the glow of each other's majestic presence
G       C       D                      C
Listen Ana hear my words, they're the ones you would think
G           Bb              C      D
I would say if there was a me for you


:: VERSE 2 ::

Em               C D
All alone at the '64 World's Fair
Em                      C          D
Eighty dolls yelling "Small girl after all"
E                 Am   G C G
Who was at the Dupont Pavilion?
D                        C             D
Why was the bench still warm? Who had been there?
Em                     C            D
Or the time when the storm tangled up the wire
Em                   C          D
To the horn on the pole at the bus depot
E                       Am   G  C  G
And in the back of the edge of hearing
D                              C          D
These are the words that the voice was repeating:


:: CHORUS ::

G    C        D                       C
Ana Ng and I are getting old and we still haven't walked
G           Bb               C    D
In the glow of each other's majestic presence
G       C       D                      C
Listen Ana hear my words, they're the ones you would think
G           Bb              C      D
I would say if there was a me for you


:: BRIDGE ::

C           D              G        D      C
When I was driving once I saw this painted on a bridge:
C                 D      G       D         C
"I don't want the world, I just want your half"

(Similar to Verse Chords)

Em                  C           D
They don't need me here, and I know you're there
Em                    C            D
Where the world goes by like the humid air
E                     Am G   C  G
And it sticks like a broken record
D                         Am G   C  G
Everything sticks like a broken record
D                    Am G   C    G
Everything sticks until it goes away
D                     C          D
And the truth is, we don't know anything


:: OUTRO CHORUS ::

G    C        D                       C
Ana Ng and I are getting old and we still haven't walked
G           Bb               C    D
In the glow of each other's majestic presence
G       C       D                      C
Listen Ana hear my words, they're the ones you would think
G           Bb              C      D
I would say if there was a me for you


Bb  C


G    C        D                       C
Ana Ng and I are getting old and we still haven't walked
G           Bb               C    D
In the glow of each other's majestic presence
G       C       D                      C
Listen Ana hear my words, they're the ones you would think
G           Bb              C      D
I would say if there was a me for you

Bb C (Repeat Chorus to fade)

Enjoy!

That whole Am G C G line could be interpreted as Am G/B C G instead so that the bass note of the first three chords is walking up. Just a suggestion/interpretation. That's atleast how I'll probably play it =)
