Disappearing Boy
Green Day
1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours (1990)
Lyrics: Billie Joe Armstrong
Music: Green Day
Tuning: Normal
Notes: Play around with the intro a bit, it's quite hard to time
right.  The bridge timing is a bit funky too.

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
5 = power chord

Lyrics

Now you see me, now you don't
Don't ask me where I'm at
Cuz I'm a million miles away
Treated like a forbidden heel		(Verse 1)
Don't say my thoughts are not for real
Or you won't see me again

Am I here or am I there?
Or am I playing on the stairs?
Am I in my room with my toys?		(Chorus 1)
I am the disappearing boy

When I walk in crowded rooms
I feel as if it is my doom
I know that I don't belong
In that room I see her			(Verse 2)
I see her and she's with him
I turn around and then I'm gone

Don't call me up 'cuz I'm not home
My whereabouts are now unknown
I vanished from all your joy		(Chorus 2)
I am the disappearing boy

I had my doubts
Of where I belong			(Bridge)
It's something to think about

(Chorus 2)
