Desperately Wanting by Better Than Ezra
(tabbed by randell@heinous.music.uiowa.edu)

Some of the lyrics are wrong, but close. :)

	Verse 1: (rhythm figure 1, clean)
e --1-----0--------3------------
B --1-----0h1p0----3------------
G --2-----2--------4------------
D --3-----2------5-5------------
A --3-----0------5-5------------
E --1------------3-3--3h5p3h5---
                         ^ (this part doesn't start until
                            the 3rd time you play it)

Past the road to your house
That you never called home
Where they turned out the lights
Though they say you'll never know

	Chorus (clean):
F		Am		
I remember running through the wet grass
G	    Csus2
Falling a step a behind
F		Am
Both of us never tiring
G		Csus2
Desperately wanting

	Verse 2 (r.f. 1, clean):
When they pumped out your guts
Filled you full of those pills
You were never quite right
Deserving all the chills

	Verse 3 (r.f. 1, distortion):
The say the worst is over
Kicked it over and ran
Then they asked what went wrong
When they turn you on again...
They turn you on again

Chorus (2x, distorted)

	Verse 4 (r.f. 1, clean):
Kick 'em right in the face
Make them wish they weren't born
And if they bring up your name
Wekk they'll say you won the war
	Verse 5 (r.f. 1, distortion):
Baby burst in the world
Never given a chance
Then they ask what when wrong
When you never had it right,
No, you never had it right...

Chorus (2x, distorted)

	Bridge (distorted):
D-C-G (2x)
D	   C		G		D
Ooo, the letters they have dropped off
	   C		  G		D
Though they say you got them all
	  C	    G
I finally figured out some 
Things you'll never know

	"Solo" (distorted):
e ----------------------------------x/\--
B ----------------------------------x/\--
G ----------------------------------x/\--
D ----------------------------------x/\--	  (4x)
A --------3----3h5-3-2---5--3--2--3-x/\--
E ---3-----------------3------------x/\--

	Verse 6 (r.f. 1, clean):
Take back your life
Let me inside
We'll find the door
If you care
If you care to anymore

	Chorus (4x, distorted, last two times with
              "Kevin Griffin la's & oh's" and "care")
