You Go Down Smooth - Lake Street Dive
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Emmett Mills
Email: emills29@gmail.com
Tuning: Standard
Song by: Mike "McDuck" Olson

Note: Fun song!  This is the version from the album "Live at the 
Lizard Lounge."  Play all of the chords open.  Listen to the 
recording a couple times to get the rhythm down.  I like to throw
an Esus4 into the mix ocasionally when I am on the open E.  Let
me know if you want to request any other Lake Street Dive tabs
and I will be more than happy to do it for you!


Intro: Vamp on open E chord

E           D                A         E
Would it be true to say that I ordered you?
         D        A       E
Or is it you that ordered me? 
        D               A          E
I could say you are the only one I see
            D       A      E
But I can't stop at two or three... 


       And I       am afraid to need you so

E          D          A                 E
Would I be lying if I said you were too sweet? 
           D          A            E
Though I'm quite sure you've got a bite 
        D                 A              E
I could say that you were just a special treat 
               D         A          E   
Though we both know that that's not right...

Or is that sentiment too frank?
        D               A              E
I could say you make it sweet to go to bed
              D        A          E
But then it's you that breaks the bank...
