The Tragically Hip
Ahead by a Century

Re-Tabbed by Keith Waterfield

This is an updated version orginally tabbed by Francois Poudrier and Pat SpruceBoy
Grantis

I just added the rest of the lyrics and moved some of the chords around.

I find this version sounds close enough to the album, you may want to add the Dsus
during the verses for a more authentic sound, or just for fun.

CHORDS
D	2320xx
Dsus	0320xx
D6	5320xx
E	0023xx
G6	330023
A	0222xx
C	01023x


Intro: D Dsus  D6 D E   (repeat 3 times)

D	   E       D
First we'd climb a tree
D
and maybe then we'd talk
D     E       D
or sit silently
D
and listen to our thoughts
C       E              D
with illusions of someday
D	E            D
casting a golden light
C		
no dress rehearsal,
D
this is our life

REPEAT INTRO (2 times)

chorus
D
and that's when the hornet stung me
C		    D	
and I had a feverish dream
D		C
with revenge and doubt
C		       D
tonight we smoke them out

A
You are ahead by a century
G6
You are ahead by a century
A
You are ahead by a century
G6

REPEAT INTRO (4 times)

D
Stare in the morning shroud
D
and then the day began
D
I tlted your cloud,
D
you tilted my hand
C
rain falls in real time
D
and rain fell through the night
C
no dress rehearsal, 
D
this is our life

REPEAT INTRO

D
and that's when the hornet stung me
C		    D	
and I had a feverish dream
D		C
with revenge and doubt
C		 D
tonight we smoke them out

A
You are ahead by a century
G6
You are ahead by a century
A
You are ahead by a century
G6

A
You are ahead by a century
G6
You are ahead by a century
A
You are ahead by a century
G6

D
and disappointing you's gettin' me down

REPEAT INTRO 5 TIMES

That E chord sounds bad. It shouldn't be there. Just keep playing D and maybe switch it up by strumming the intro.
