ME BY THE SEA (Edie Brickell)
-----------------------------
[Capo 1.]
[The A* measures in the verses are actually A - Asus9 - A,
 alternating between 0 and 2 on the B string.  Similarly, E* is
 E - Esus4 - E, switching between 1 and 2 on the G string.]
[Hammer on from 0 to 2 on the A string in the E chords after
 the line, "I can't on my own."]
[F#m7(4) is 244200.  Use your thumb.]

A*  Dsus9  A*  Asus9    A*  Dsus9  A  Asus9
[intro]

    A*            Dsus9      A*        Asus9
I'm glad no one's here, just me by the sea
    A*            Dsus9   Esus4          E
I'm glad no one's here to mess it up for me
    A*            Dsus9      F#m7(4)   E
I'm glad no one's here, just me by the sea
    Bm            G             A    A
But man, I wish I had a hand to hold

A*  Dsus9  A*  Asus9    A*  Dsus9  A  Asus9
[instrumental]

  A                 Dsus9       A         Asus9
I saw an orange starfish on the side of a rock
  A*           Dsus9    Esus4             E*
I poked on his back and tried to pull him off
    A*            Dsus9       F#m7(4)     E
A crab scared me away, he ran close to my toes
    Bm            G             A    A
And man, I wish I had a hand to hold

A*  Dsus9  A*  Asus9      A*  Dsus9  Esus4  E*
[instrumental]

[instrumental]

    A*        Dsus9         A*           Asus9
The moon is nowhere, almost time for the sun
    A*           Dsus9        Esus4       E*
The voice of the waves sounds anciently young
      A*          Dsus9        F#m7(4)     E
I'm a prisoner of freedom, ten toes in the sand
    Bm            G             A    A
And man, I wish I had a hand to hold

G          G        D      D
I'm in the habit of being alone
Dm            Dm          A           E   E   E   E
I try hard to break it, I can't on my own

    A*            Dsus9      A*        Asus9
I'm glad no one's here, just me by the sea
    A*            Dsus9   Esus4          E*
I'm glad no one's here to mess it up for me
    A*            Dsus9      F#m7(4)   E
I'm glad no one's here, just me by the sea
    Bm            G             A    A
But man, I wish I had a hand to hold

[instrumental]
