I NEED SOME SLEEP - Eels

Tabbed by: Clinton
Email: clintonstabs@hotmail.com

Pretty song from Shrek 2. My 3yo son loves the movie so its fun to play while he sings. 
Play the Am/F with yr thumb. 4th cord cud be straight C but Cmaj7 (x32000) sounds cool. 
Note 2nd tabbed out is slightly different from first.     
FYI - lyrics are from other chord tab on this site.
Enjoy.

[Verse]

Am          Em        F                  Cmaj7 (or C)
I need some sleep You can't go home like this

Am             Em        F                    G
I try counting sheep But there's one I always miss

Am       Em       F               C
Everyone says I'm getting down to low

Am       Em         F                 C
Everyone says, "You just gotta let it go"


[Chorus]

    F                 C
You just gotta let it go

    F                 C
You just gotta let it go

  Am      Em      Am/F    Cmaj7

[Verse]

Am          Em            F                 Cmaj7
I need some sleep time to put the old horse down

Am         Em           F                    G
I'm in too deep and the wheels keep spinning round

Am       Em       F               C
Everyone says I'm getting down to low

Am       Em         F                 C
Everyone says, "You just gotta let it go"


[Chorus]

F                     C
You just gotta let it go

F                     C
You just gotta let it go

  Am      Em      Am/F    Cmaj7    Am      Em      Am/F    G

good tab, thanx!

just one comment, in the Am/F arpeggio part, I think it's sound better if u play a Fmajor instead of Am/F (D string become -3--3-)
and if u wanna match to the original sound of the song, u can use a capo on the 12 fret (yes I know it's really high but so the song is) and put a slighty distortion.

have fun!
