Why Bother by Allison Weiss


Capo 3rd Fret  (she plays it on 2nd fret sometimes too but the EP version is 3rd)



      ***RELATIVE TO CAPO***

     E     Ab    A     B     Db
   --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- 
   --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- 
   --9-- --5-- --6-- --8-- --6-- 
   --9-- --6-- --7-- --9-- --6-- 
   --7-- --6-- --7-- --9-- --4-- 
   --0-- --4-- --5-- --7-- --0-- 



The picking is fairly random and you can pick up the general idea just by listening to the song.
Something like this works for the verse: 

e------------------|-----------------|
B--------0---------|-----------------|
G----9-------9-----|-------5-------6-|
D------9---9-----9-|---6-------7-----|
A--------------7---|-----------------|
E--0---------------|-4---4---5---5---|

And the chorus is like this:

e------------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B--------0---------|-------0---------|-------0---------|-------0---------|
G----6-------6-----|---8-------8-----|---9-------9-----|---6-------6-----|
D------7---7-----7-|-----9---9-----7-|-----9---9-----9-|-----6---6-----6-|
A--------------7---|-------------7---|-7-----------7---|-4-----------4---|
E--5---------------|-7---------------|-----------------|-----------------|



VERSE 1

E                 Ab           A                E
I'm not a mystery everything I think is written down

Ab              A           E
keeping me from keeping you around

Ab            A           E
can't keep my feet on the ground

E                          Ab            A           E
and there's a million ways I can mess it up I always do

Ab               A               E
making plans and making them too soon

Ab                A            E
I can't make much sense out of you


CHORUS

Ab  A            B            E                Db             A
      why bother   I'd rather call it off than wait for it to work

               B              E                    Db             A
and why bother   I bet you're better off with some other hopeless jerk

      B        E              Db 
and I like you   but what can I do

        A                 B            E
there's too much space to make you stay



VERSE 2

E                              Ab           A              E
and there's a price to pay for doing what I do but I can't stop

  Ab         A                  E
I open up my heart like it's my job

  Ab               A             E
I tell myself it's over but it's not

E                          Ab                 A                 E
I've got a running list of all the times I've tried to break my fall

    Ab                 A                     E
and all the times I've wished that you would call

    Ab                 A                 E
and all the times I've wished for you at all



CHORUS

Ab  A            B            E                Db             A
      why bother   I'd rather call it off than wait for it to work

               B              E                    Db             A
and why bother   I bet you're better off with some other hopeless jerk

      B        E              Db 
and I like you   but what can I do

        A                 B            E
there's too much space to make you stay

there's too much space to make you stay
