Subject: CRD: SANTA MONICA by Everclear


here it is... lyrics and all...

i tried my best to line up all the chords with the words where the chord
changes occur, but you'll get the best idea by listening to the song...

the chords are tabbed out at the end of the tab... so....


Santa Monica
by Everclear


attempt at rhythm-

if you can't pick it up from the song, here's a valiant attempt..

verse-


G5   G5   x x x x    G5   G5   G5/E   G5   G5   x x x x

(repeat.. the x's represent muting the strings and stumming)

same basic strumming technique throughout the rest of the song


** all verses use the same progression as in verse I
*** all choruses use the same progression as in the first chorus..

[Verse I]

                                    G5     G5/E   G5
           I am still living with your ghost
                  G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5
           Lonely and dreaming of the west coast
                      G5/E               D5   E5    C5
           I don't want to be your downtime
                  C5    D5     G5
           I don't want to be your stupid game


[Verse II]

                                    G5     G5/E   G5
           With my big black boots and an old suitcase
                  G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5
           I do believe I'll find myself a new place
                      G5/E               D5   E5    C5
           I don't want to be the bad guy
                  C5    D5     G5
           I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

           I just want to see some palm trees
           Go and try to shake away this disease

[Chorus]
                                C5
           We can live beside the ocean
           C5            D5          G5
           Leave the fire behind
           G5               E5     D5
           Swim out past the breakers
           D5          C5      G5
           Watch the world die


[Verse III]

                                    G5     G5/E   G5
           I am still dreaming of your face
                  G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5
           Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
                      G5/E               D5   E5    C5
           I don't want to be your good time
                  C5    D5     G5
           I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore


[Verse IV]

                                    G5     G5/E   G5
           I'll walk right out into a brand new day
                  G5/E         G5      G5/E  G5
           Insane and rising in my own weird way
                      G5/E               D5   E5    C5
           I don't want to be the bad guy
                  C5    D5     G5
           I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore

           I just want to feel some sunshine
           I just want to find some place to be alone


[Chorus]
                                C5
           We can live beside the ocean
           C5            D5          G5
           Leave the fire behind
           G5               E5     D5
           Swim out past the breakers
           D5          C5      G5
           Watch the world die
