                                THE BRIDGE SONG - Dishwalla
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Kevin Buzby - 10 March 2005
E-mail: kjlee@bu.edu
AIM SN: kjlee2112
Tuning: EADGBe (Standard 440Mhz)

Notes: This song was requested of me to be done--about three weeks ago I promised it
to be done that weekend, so I apologize, I had a lot of school stuff goin on.
I didn't know it, but it wasn't hard at all.  It is one of those sweet, simple songs
that Dishwalla have a knack for.  

It's pretty straight forward, but if there are questions, ask away.

Chord key:
(Quick note:  The Am-Asus2-Am and D-Dsus4-D are just hammers-on and pull-offs
to those middle chords for accentuation--again, a Dishwalla trait.)
  G    D/F#  Em7    C    Am   Asus2   D   Dsus4

Riff:
(This is the riff played over the second choruses--use a slide--
with lots of reverb and some distortion to get that nice legato feel.  
Again, use your ears, and you'll figure out which part to use where. 
It's really basic.)

Intro:

G-D/F#-Em7 x2
(listen for the timing--it's just a basic strumming pattern anyways, with just one
acoustic strumming and one doubling or providing arpeggios to make the sound sound 
fuller. I'm not going to bother tabbing any of the main chords because they are
easy to pick up on.  This is a good 'first song' to learn.)

Verse 1:

                      
I don't know where to go
G      D/F#               Em7
  So I guess i'll have to fly
             G                 D/F#            Em7
I'll have to dream of all good things before I die
            G
So where to go
       D/F#               Em7
Lord I guess I'll have to fly
             G                 D/F#            Em7
I'll have to dream of all good things before I die


Chorus:

         C               Em7          Am Asus2 Am
And it's getting so much harder to be one these days
C          Em7        Am Asus2 Am
   So much harder to believe
C              Em7          Am Asus2 Am
   And so much harder to be one these days
C          Em7        D     Dsus4  D
   So much harder to believe yeah believe

Verse 2:

             G                D/F#            Em7                                                   
And did they know that they'd need a fence so high
             G       D/F#           Em7
Cause givin' up is a total waste of time
          G           D/F#        Em7
I stop to breathe    in air    as I
            G                 D/F#           Em7
I watch the ground beneath us blend into the sky

Chorus:

         C               Em7          Am Asus2 Am
And it's getting so much harder to be one these days
C          Em7       Am Asus2 Am
   So much harder to believe
C              Em7          Am Asus2 Am
  It's so much harder to be one these days
C         Em7       D Dsus4 D
  So much harder to believe
           C               Em7          Am Asus2 Am
Cause it's getting so much harder to be one these days
C         Em7       Am Asus2 Am       
  So much harder to believe
C         Em7          Am                         
  So much harder to be one these days
C         Em7        D Dsus4 D                    
  So much harder to believe

Outro:
(He plays something similar to this over and over.  This isn't exact.  He's really just fingerpicking
the chords apart within the key.  Just arpeggiate really, and you'll get what they
are trying to accomplish here.  Play the notes in () after the first time he starts playing this passage.)

I don't know where to go

I actually haven't played the riffs yet, I didn't even know they existed! But the tab is good! Great! Perfect!
