  Alright.  This is Frank.  These are the chords for the song "Bastard" on Ben Folds's
new album Songs For Silverman.  Before I do this tab I'm going to say this:  BEN FOLDS
WRITES ALL THE SONGS ON ROCKIN' THE SUBURBS AND SONGS FOR SILVERMAN, SO WHY ARE ALL THE
ROCKIN' THE SUBURBS TABS UNDER BEN FOLDS FIVE?  Sorry.  Well anyway, here you go.  These
are the piano chords.

                                  Bastard
                                 Ben Folds
                            Songs for Silverman

Intro- Em

    Em                      D          G
  The old bastard left his ties and a suit,

  D          G     D              G       C     D
    a brown box, mothballs, and bowling shoes.

    Em                    D              G
  And his opinion so you never have to choose

  D         G           D         G     C     
    pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too.

    the more you know you know you don't know shit,

  Am--------------------------------------          C
    the wis-man will never fit you like the wis-kid did.

       G            D           Em           D     C
  So, why ya gotta act like ya know when ya don't know?
                                                       
  Am          C                               
    It's okay, if you don't know everything.  

Solo starts on G.  That's all for now.  Frank Minella
