Elliot Smith - Fond Farewell Chords

Tuning: 1/2 step down (E♭-A♭-D♭-G♭-B♭-E♭)

I would love if someone figured out the hammer-on's and pull-offs.

[Intro]

Am    C     G      Em   (x3)

Am    C


[Verse 1]

G                    C           G
The litebrite's now black and white
           Am                      Em
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Bm                  C
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
Am                        C
The only maker that you'd want to meet
Em                 C        G
The dying man in a living room
        Am             Em
Whose shadow paces the floor
Bm                    C
He'll take you out any open door


[Chorus]

Am             C
This is not my life
             G
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                C
It's not what I'm like
             G                  Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                      C
Who couldn't get things right
   G                  Em
A fond farewell to a friend

Am      C


[Verse 2]

G                     C        G
He said really I just wanna dance
         Am                         Em
Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance
Bm                    C
I can deal with some psychic pain
Am                    C
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Em                 C        G
Veins full of disappearing ink
Am               Em
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Bm                     C
Disconnecting from the missing link


[Chorus]

Am             C
This is not my life
             G
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                C
It's not what I'm like
             G                  Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                      C
Who couldn't get things right
   G                  Em
A fond farewell to a friend

Am     C


[Verse 3]

G            C        G
I see you're leaving me
Am                    Em
And taking up with the enemy
Bm                      C
The cold comfort of the in between
Am                   C
A little less than a human being
Em                   C        G
A little less than a happy high
Am                  Em
A little less than a suicide
Bm                       C
The only things that you really tried


[Chorus]

Am             C
This is not my life
             G
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                C
It's not what I'm like
             G                   Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Am                     C
Who couldn't get things right
   G                   Em
A fond farewell to a friend
Am             C
This is not my life
             G                  Em
It's just a fond farewell to a friend


[Outro]

Am    C    Cm    G    Em   (x3)

Am    C    Cm    Cm   G (strum G really slow)

The following lines should be Amaj, not Amin:The only maker that you'd want to meetIf it'll slow down my higher brainA little less than a human being
