[ Old version ]
==============================================================

Here's a fun one for you to play around with.  One of those songs
everyone loves but will never admit it.

[Intro]

D|-------9-9-----------------------------12--------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|


[Verse] is:  G/A/D/G  G/A/D/G  G/A/Bm/A

I'm not really sure of the chorus.  It may be because I'm playing the
verse in the wrong key because I have the chords wrong for the chorus.
For the chorus, you can get away with E/G#/A

I'd say the whole thing could use some work, so feel free to chip in.

And while I'm at it, I'd love to trade SUPERCHUNK tab with anyone.

I'll say it anyway

I'am odds and ends
     Bm            E
But that's me, stumbling away

Slowly learning that life is O.K.

Say after me

It's no better to be safe than sorry

Take On       Me   (Take on me)
A    F#m/G#  F#m   D
Take me      on   (Take on me)

I'll be      gone in a day or two

[Verse 3]

Bm              E
The things that you say
A                 D      C#m
Is it live or just a play
     Bm            E
My worries away
  A             D     C#m
You're all the things I've got to remember
Bm          E
You shying away
F#m                     D
I'll be coming for you anyway

Take On       Me   (Take on me)
A    F#m/G#  F#m   D
Take me      on   (Take on me)
A    C#m/G#  F#m  D           A    C#m/G# D E
I'll be      gone in a day or two

there is no Hm but g is right next to h on the keyboard so im guesing its meant to be a Gm

some people call it "H" instead of "B" - it's a Bm chord
