Subject: TAB:  How it's going to be by Third Eye Blind

"How's It Going To Be" by Third Eye Blind

This is mostly an addition to Geoff Johnston's CRD file.  With a couple
additions, corrections, like the intro riff,  a few lyric corrections,
etc.  This is really a good song,  made me cry the first time I heard
it.  It's also a really good song to play for a girlfriend  (I'm
serious).  I played it for mine and she cried too.  Okay enough with the
sentimental crap on with the tab.

Capo:   Placed on 3rd fret.

 First the chords come in which are.  D,  A, and G.  Then that really
cool riff as follows.  Play this with your reverb pedal on, or
at full blast.


Verse #1:

D                                 A    G
I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore.  Before you
D             A    G
take a swing, I wonder what are we fighting
D                                       A   G
for. When I say out loud, I want to get out of this, I wonder
D                 A      G
Is there anything I'm gonna miss

Chorus #1:

I wonder
Em                                A
How's it gonna be, when you don't know me,
Em                                  G
How's it gonna be, when you're sure I'm not there,
Em                              A
How's it gonna be, when there's no one there to talk to,
Em                    G
Between you and me, 'cause I don't care, How's it gonna

D     A      G

Intro Riff

Verse #2:

D                                     A         G
Where we used to laugh, there's a shouting match.  Sharp as a thumbnail
D                A                G
scratch.  A silence I can't ignore.  Like the hammock by the doorway
D                                    A          G
we spent time in, swing's empty.  I don't see lightning like last fall,
D                  A      G
when it was always about to hit me

Chorus #2:

I wonder
Em                         A
How's it gonna be, when  it goes down
Em                                G
How's it gonna be, when you're not around
Em                              A
How's it gonna be, when you found out there was nothing
Em                       G
Between you and me, 'cause I don't care, How's it gonna

D    A    G

--Begin the distortion man--

Em             G                 D          A
How's it gonna be when you don't know me anymore
Em             G
How's it gonna be

D                 A             G
Wanna kill myself like he did
D        A              G
the salt of love dreary air
D                              A        G
I wanna taste the salt of your skin
D                        A        G
the salt of the bloomy air the bloomy air (blew my head?)

Em             G                 D          A
How's it gonna be when you don't know me anymore
Em             G
How's it gonna be

--Stop the distortion man!--

Intro Riff

D        A        G
How's it gonna be.....
