Box Set – Barenaked Ladies

I’ve taken one or two liberties with this song to make it playable without having 
to use too many barre chords. If you play along with it using the capo, you 
probably won’t even notice the changes. If you can do an alternating bass picking 
pattern between strums, you can mimic the bass line somewhat too. Enjoy…

Capo 3

Intro: Am7Dm7E7Am7E7Am7

Am7                            Dm7         E7           Am7
I never thought that you would love me the way that you do.
Am7                            Dm7             E7        Am7
I never thought that you would love me half as much as I do.
Am7                               Dm7                      E7        
You say you wanna know everything about me - well here you go,
Am7                                 Dm7                 E7        
You say you couldn't live your life without me, I don't know.
Am7                             Dm7                 
But if you want it girl, you've got it;
               E7              Am7E7Am7
It's all right here, in my box set.

Am7                             Dm7           E7            Am7
I never thought that words like product could ever leave my lips,
Am7                          Dm7            E7              Am7
But something happened to me somewhere that made me lose my grip.
Am7                        Dm7                 E7        
Maybe it's a lack of inspiration that makes me stoop,
Am7                           Dm7               E7        
Or maybe it's a lack of remuneration; I can't recoup.
Am7                           Dm7                 
But if you want it folks, you got it;
               E7              Am7E7Am7
It's all right here, in my box set.

Am7                                     Bm7b5           E7
Disc One - It's where we've begun, it's all of greatest hits,
    Dm7                       E7                       Am7
and if you are a fan then you know that you've already got 'em.
Am7                                 Bm7b5            E7
Disc Two - It was all brand new, an album's worth of songs,
    Dm7                            E7                            Am7
but we had to leave the whole disc blank 'cause some other label bought 'em.
F                           E7
Disc Three - This is really me in a grade school play;
  Dm7                          E7                       Am7
I had about a hundred thousand lines but of course I forgot 'em.

Interlude:      (Am7Dm7E7) x 2

Am7*    Abdim7*            Gm7*      Am7*
I never thought there'd be days like this, 
          Dm7                  E7
There was always someone at my door.
Am7     Abdim7          Gm7  Am7
I never thought I would ever miss,
        Dm7                           E7
And the crowd would always holler for more.
Dm7                       E7             Am7            Bm7b5
But now it seems all that people want is what I used to be,
Dm7                     E7                         Am7        Bm7b5 – E7
and every time I try to do something new, all they want is 1973.

Am7Am7                       Dm7       E7          Am7
I never thought I'd be regretful of all my past success
Am7                            Dm7        E7             Am7
but some stupid number one hit single has got me in this mess.
Am7                          Dm7               E7        
You can put it on every compilation - that's alright.
Am7                                 Dm7           E7        
You can hear it on the oldies radio station every night.
Am7                           Dm7                 
And if you want it again, you got it-
           E7             Am7E7Am7
It's right here in my box set.

Am7                          Bm7b5                  E7
Disc Four - Never released before, and you can tell why.
     Dm7                 E7           Am7
it's just some demos I recorded in my basement.
Am7                                   Bm7b5        E7
Disc Five - I was barely alive, I was hacking up a lung,
    Dm7                         E7            Am7
so they had to use a special computer as my replacement.
F                                  E7
Disc Six - A dance remix, so I can catch the latest trend
          Dm7                            E7              Am7
and it'll make you scratch your head and wonder where my taste went.

Am7                       Dm7           E7                    Am7
So now my fans are crying sellout, they say that I've lost my touch.
Am7                            Dm7        E7            Am7
They say I should just get the hell out before I do too much.
Am7                                   Dm7                      E7        
Hear my songs in an ad for a bathroom cleanser - they say it's greed,
Am7                            Dm7                         E7        
And now I'm wondering where my friends are in this time of need.
Am7                             Dm7                  E7
But if you change your mind and buy it, I hope you enjoy my new box.
Dm7          E7              Dm7          E7             Am7E7Am7
I hope you enjoy my new box, I hope you enjoy my new box set.

Bm7b5 = x2323x          Abdim7 = 45646x

Any chord with a * beside it should be played in the full bar position

Great chord sheet! I don't want to post this as a correction becuase all the chords are right, but if you're playing this fingerpicking, you don't have to do barre chords on the bridge if you do this instead:

Am7 as usual
Abdim7 = 4x010x
Gm7 = 3x333x
Am7 as usual

rest of song as usual

I find this to be way easier, may just be personal preference.

Hi Metudor...

Thanks for the comments...and the note about the bridge. For me, I prefer to barre that part so I can mute the strings between chords for dynamic effect. To each his own :-)

Play On Brother...
