From: snazaria@twain.oit.umass.edu (Steven E Nazarian)
Subject: Dave Matthews Band - "Pay For What You Get"

            
         
         Here's the tab and words to this sweet song off of  
         "Under The Table And Dreaming" by DMB. Use your fingers
         and slap the tops of the strings after each chord for
         percussion (Listen to the song to get the timing right!)
         

                 
               "Pay For What You Get" - Dave Matthews Band
                     -transcribed by Steve Nazarian-
                       (snazaria@student.umass.edu)

BACK TO VERSE AND SO ON:

    This is essentially the whole song (There are a couple variations
  to these parts but nothing you can't figure out easily enough by
  ear if you have to...) It would be a waste of time to write the same
  parts over and over again (OKAY SO I'M LAZY!!!) 

WORDS:

 Work ourselves, fingers to the bone
 Suck the marrow, drain my soul
 Pay your dues, and your debts, Pay your respects
 Everybody tells you You pay for what you get

 Everybody asks me how's she doing
 Has she really lost her mind?
 I said, I couldn't tell you I've lost mine

 Words, words, words, have you heard
 A bird in hand is much better than 
 Any number free to wander Fly away...
 Stay You pay for what you get
 
 Everybody asks me how's she doing
 Is she really all she says...
 Everybody asks me how's she doing 
 Since she went away
 I said, I couldn't tell you, I'm okay

 Surprise, surprise 
 You pay for what you get
 You pay for what you get

 Everybody asks me how's she doing
 Has she lost her...
 Everybody asks me how's she doing
 Since she went away
 I said, I couldn't tell you, I'm okay, I'm okay
 How are you? Pay for what you get
 Pay for what you get... oh...
 Pay for what you get
 Pay for what you get... Oh...
