About this tab version
Tab for regular guitar, not baritone. Was this info helpful? Yes No
The song uses a baritone guitar for the most part, but I'm just going to write down you'd play it with a
standard guitar. Also, this is a dumbed down version, too. In the verses, he plays a riff while playing F5
power chord with the bottom note and the same goes for the Bb5 power chord. So just experiment with those
till it sounds like the songs riff.

Jeff Rosenstock - Festival Song

[Intro]

F5  Fmaj7  Fsus2 F5

Bb5  Gm7  Bb5  Bbmaj7

[Verse]

F5*
It feels completely ridiculous 

Fmaj7      Fsus2
that I’m a willing participant, 

Bb5           Gm7                     Bb5                  Bbmaj7
gazing at the purple and pinks in the shadow of a bank-sponsored skyline. 

F5*
“Unite against the establishment!™
 
Fmaj7         Fsus2
(while drones transmit the images 

Bb5         Gm7                      Bb5                       Bmaj7
to a server farm in the valley for a culture that will eat its own insides.)”

[Chorus] 

D5                        C#5       F5          A5
Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. 

D5                        C#5       F5          A5
Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. 

D5                    C5        F5       A5
They wouldn’t be your friend if it wasn’t worth it, 

Bb5
if you didn’t have something they could take.

[Verse]

F5*                                     Fmaj7                Fsus2
Take a long look at the billboards that smother the air ‘til you can’t ignore ‘em

Bb5                            Gm7
and glamorize department store crust-punk-chic 

       Bb5                          Bbmaj7
‘cause Satan’s trending up and it’s Fashion Week but 

F5*
this is not a movement. It’s just careful entertainment for an easy demographic in our sweatshop denim jackets
         Bb5
and we’ll wonder, “What just happened?!” when the world becomes Manhattan 

where the banks steal the apartments just to render them abandoned. 


[Verse]

D5                        C#5       F5          A5
Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. 

D5                        C#5       F5          A5
Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. 

D5                    C5        F5       A5
They wouldn’t be your friend if it wasn’t worth it,

Bb5                                     F5 A5 D5 Bb5 x3
if you didn’t have something they could take.


[Interlude]

F5  A5  D5  F5* Bb5  A5  G5  D#5

[Bridge]

F5                               A5                           D5                          F5*
We’re not stupid people but this financial oppression has got everyone believing all that we can do is nothing
          
          Bb5                           A5 
‘cause we organize through avenues they lace with advertisements 

       G5                              D#5
so the ones we try to rage against are still lining their pockets. 

[Chorus]

D5~
Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. 

N.C.
Oh, they wouldn’t be your friend if you weren’t worth something. 

D5                    C5        F5       A5
They wouldn’t be your friend if it wasn’t worth it, 

Bb5                                     F5 A5 D5 Bb5 x3
if you didn’t have something they could take.


[End]
