Despite the insane drumming(Eric Slick?) at the back end of this song, I think you can
rock this one out on the acoustic if you get the strumming down, especially the double
time part.  I tried to nail the chord changes on the lyrics but this editor kinda sucks. 
Maybe my first and last guitar tab!  Feel free to contact me at padzeke@me.com.


Intro: Gmin - 4bars

Gmin                     Bmaj
I put on my clothes like a body guard
        C#m7                     Emaj
I put the dogs on patrol in my own back yard
Gmin                           Bmaj
I don't wanna fight but I'm constantly ready
    C#m7                             Emaj
And I don't rock the boat, but it's always unsteady

         Emaj
There's an elephant in my head
      Bmaj
And I tip toe around it
         C#m7
There are eggshells on the floor
          Emaj
Therefore I never touch the ground

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,
  F#maj
You set out each day
F#maj
Never to arrive

        Gmin
I got my eyes on the prize
        Bmaj
But it looks just like a mystery
        C#m7                  Emaj
And it all goes by on the lonesome trail to victory
    Gmin                           Bmaj
I'm drawing in the blinds, I got my own four walls
          C#m7                        Emaj
And the show really starts once the curtain falls

         Emaj
Take this thorn from my side
         Bmaj
Fix this chip on my shoulder
         C#m7
Time is racing with the clock
         Emaj
And I ain't getting any older


               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,
  F#maj
You set out each day
F#maj
Never to arrive

Gmin("Whoo!")


Bmaj
I put on my finest thread
      Bmaj                                C#m7
And I wrap up my body tight
                      C#m7
With the sun in my eyes
                 Bmaj
I step into the night
       C#m7                Emaj
Like the mystery in the dark
Oh, it's just another kind of light

      Bmaj
I don't expect you to believe me
      C#m7              Bmaj
But everything is al--right
          Bmaj
I don't make rules for a living
      Bmaj                            C#m7
I don't do tricks for a dime

                 C#m7
I was born on a good day,
                 Bmaj
Deaf, dumb and blind.
      C#m7           Emaj
Who am I to tell the truth?

I don't even know what it is.


  Bmaj                           C#m7                Bmaj
I don't know how to say it but I know that I can show you.
  Bmaj                           C#m7                Bmaj
I don't know how to say it but I know that I can show you.


(now for the fun..double time)

      Bmaj
I tie my boots up tight
  Bmaj
And I head straight for bed
         C#m7
There's a pistol and a crystal
C#m7
Underneath my pillow

       Bmaj
There's a tender heart
           Bmaj
Inside that ugly armadillo
          C#m7
"These are tears of joy,"
         F#maj
Cried the weeping willow

        Emaj
There's a spirit in the air
       F#maj
And there ain't no way around it
      Bmaj
I was not prepared to lose it
       C#m7
On the moment that I found it

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,
  F#maj
You set out each day
F#maj
Never to arrive

Hang onto that end chord:Bmaj

Haha yeah Eric really attacks the drums. The chords sound kind of off though, but its a hard song to tab, so good try!
