         Come    back   anothe---r  day

[Solo] 

played over the verse/chorus-chords


[Verse 2]

I can't get to sleep

I think about the implications

Of diving in too deep

And possibly the complications

Especially at night

I worry over situations

I know will be alright

It's just overkill


[Chorus]

Day after day it reappears

Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

Ghosts appear and fade away

Ghosts appear and fade away

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
And thats about it. If u've seen the series scrubs they play this song in 
episode 1 (season 2). There he, Colin Hay, takes different chords then I've 
tabbed down here but it sounds the same anyway..so enjoy!
ps. this is my first tab so be nice ^^

Colin Hay Acoustic version of Overkill
This is an alternate tuning First and Sixth stings tuned to D.
This is a great blues slide tune, so try a slider on it after you
learn the song and have some fun. I don?t know the names of
these cords so I have numbered them. C1 =Cord #1 and so on.

D --0-- --x-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --x-- --x--
B --7-- --7-- --7-- --7-- --5-- --5-- --3-- --0-- --0--
G --0-- --7-- --0-- --6-- --0-- --4-- --4-- --7-- --6--

D --4-- --2-- --5-- --2-- --2--
A --4-- --4-- --5-- --0-- --0--
D --x-- --x-- --x-- --x-- --x--

C10 C11 C12 C13 C14

Intro is C1 and C2 cords.
The intro is used as a break during the song also.

C3 C4
I can't get to sleep

C5 C6
I think about the implications

...

C7 C13 C14
Day after day it reappears

C7 C8 C9
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

C10 C11 C12
Ghosts appear and fade away
