- Fond Farewell -

by Elliott Smith 
Album: From A Basement On The Hill
Tabbed by Dries Meijer, Holland

When you listen on the album you can clearly hear that Elliott uses Barré chords
instead of normal chords witch you see on other tabs. So I can pretty much say that
this is the closest you can get. At the bottom of the tab you can see the chords. Have
fun with my first tab.

Gb barré A E Dbm Gb barré A E Dbm Gb barré A E Dbm Gb barré A

E                   A         E
The litebrite's now black and white
          Gbm                       Dbm
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Ab                    barré A
   Pitch burning on a shining sheet
Gb                           barré A
   The only maker that you'd want to meet
E                  A      E
The dying man in a living room
Gb                        Dbm
   Who's shadow paces the floor
Ab                            barré A
   Who'll take you out in the open door
Gb                A
   This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Gb                   A
   It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Gb                      A
Who couldn't get things right
E                  Dbm
Fond farewell to a friend

End with E and Am, but make sure last chord is an E

Here are the tabs for the chords

Maybe I'm crazy, but this is played with a capo 2nd fret.
