 "Untogether"
 By: Belly
 From: Star
 Written By: Tanya Donnelly


Song is 5 open chords, but she plays them strangely. Chords are A, E, D, G, and
 B min played like this:

     e -----0------X--------X-------3------0-|
     B -----2------3--------3-------0------0-|
     G -----2------2--------0-------3------1-|
     D -----2------0--------0-------2------2-|
     A -----0------X--------2-------3------2-|
     E -----0------X--------3-------X------0-|

               A      D        G       Bmin   E


   (only E and A are played normally. She basically mutes the high E string)

   These chords are played like this with the lyrics, I think, Double check with
     the album for acuracy.


 [intro strum A]

        E                                 D                     G  A
   I was friendly with this girl who insisted on touching my face

        E                      D
  She told out-rageous stories; I believed them

    Bmin                                            A
  til the endings were changing from endings before

      E               D       G
  She's not touching me anymore...

   A         E                  D            G
  Untogether.   I couldn't help it, it got hard.

  A                            E              D
  You can try your whole life, but you can't change the unchangeably

  G         A
  Untogether.


  I got shipwrecked with this frog who was constantly testing my faith.
  He made outrageous demands, I ignored him,
  til I strapped on my bird feet and surfed into shore
  He's not touching me anymore.

  Untogether,  I couldn't help it it got hard.
  You can try your whole life,
  but you can't save the unsaveably untogether

  Now this bird nests on my back, keeps me twisting and turning to see.
  We threw out-rageous parties, we were golden.
  Now the bird keeps her distance, and I keep my spleen.
  Sometimes there's no poison like a dream.

  Untogether, I couldn't help it, it got hard.
  You can try your whole life,
  but you can't hold the impossibly untogether!

- the lyrics are right in the first version
- the chords are right in the second version, except:
- the 'B' should be a B7, sounds to me like 1st position: x21202 (the first version *almost* got this right except it's labeled 'Bm9' and up one fret)
