Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
artist:  Ben Folds Five
song:    Evaporated
album:   Whatever and Ever, Amen
trans.:  Brent Ritchey (mxpx281@hotmail.com)

(the whole song has a fourth running through
it in the right hand.  I think Ben might
be using two pianos on this song.  Instead of
an F chord it's really C and F at middle C.)

INTRO
F  F/A  F/Bb 
F  F/A  F/Bb

VERSE 1
F                     F/A
  What I've kept with me
    F/Bb                  /C
And what I've thrown away
    F                     F/A
And where the hell I've ended up
        F/A            
On this glary, random day
/B   /C  F/D                F/G
Were the things I really cared about
     F/C             F 
just left along the way
    F/Bb             
For being too pent up and proud

VERSE 2
Woke up way too late
feeling hungover and old
And the sun was shining bright
and I walked barefoot down the road
Started thinking 'bout my old man
It seems that all men 
want to get into a car and go
F/A   F/Bb
any - where

CHORUS
       Bbadd2  Cadd4       Cadd4/E      F
Here I stand         sad and       free
        Bbadd2  Cadd4       Cadd4/D  /D  /D#  
I can't  cry          I can't see
Cadd4/E           Bbadd2     Cadd4
        What I've       done
   Cadd4/D  Dm7/A  F/Bb   F/A   
Oh God what have I done?

PIANO INTERLUDE
F  F/A  F/Bb  (riff 1) 
F  F/A  F/Bb  (riff 2)   

VERSE 3
Don't you know I'm numb, man
No I can't feel a thing at all
'Cause it's all smiles and business these days
And I'm indifferent to the loss
I think that there's a soul somewhere
that's leading me around
I wonder if she knows which way is down

CHORUS
Here I stand, sad and free
I can't cry, and I can't see
What I've done, oh God what have I done?

Abdim7  C  Csus4  C

BRIDGE
Bb                    C  F  Bb
I poured my heart out
C                     Bb/F
I poured my heart out
   F    F/A   F/Bb
It evaporated      see?

F  F/A  F/Bb

VERSE 4
Blind man on a canyon's edge of a panoramic scene
Maybe I'm a kite that's flying high and random
Dangling on a string, or slumped over in a vacant room 
Head on a stranger's knee
    F/Bb 
I'm sure back home they think I've lost my mind

CHORUS
Here I stand - sad and free
I can't cry and I can't see
What I've done
Oh God what have I done?

F  F/A  F/Bb  (riff 1)
F  F/A  F/Bb  (riff 2)
F  F/A  F/Bb  (riff 1)
F  F/A  (riff 3) F/Bb

**RIFFS**
riff 1: (octave + 3rd above middle C)
E-E-F-C-Bb-A
riff 2: (sixth above middle C)
A-A-Bb-G-F-E
riff 3: (fifth above middle C)

Since F/A, F/C and F/G are all the same on the ukulele, should I play it a different way? Like add the third fret to the A string for one of the chords and do other F chord variations for all the slashed chords or something? I figured you must have left those slashed chords in there for a reason... unless you just copied the guitar tab and thought it would be the same on a uke... I'd love to play this song, but it sounds weird not have that chord progression. Please help! Thanks!
