Subject: last liz phair tab for now

ok, here's the last one.  it's probably my favorite one, but i can't get
it to sound like it does on the album.  i'm pretty sure the chords are
close, but something is missing.  it might be that i don't have any
effects;
a little chorus and delay may be what what you need to make it sound just
right.  this is as close as i can get.

------------
the main theme is just variations of these crds (i think).  the B is the
one that sounds a little funny.  like usual, liz only plays 2 or 3 notes
are
for each crd.
i might be some notes in between the chords, i can't quite tell.

        C#      Ab   B  Ab
e----------------------------4--|
B---------6------------------4--|
G-----------6----5---2-----5----| or some variation thereof.   i can't
D-------6--------6---2-----6----| remember if the third crd is a B or a C.
A-------4----------------6------| it might be played on the 3rd fret instead
E------------------------4------| of the 2nd.

C# = A shape barre crd at 4th fret
Ab = E shape barre crd at 4th fret
B  = A shape barre crd at 2nd fret (maybe 3rd?)

this theme is played thru all the verses.

for the chorus part...(i don't remember if the 1st crd is F# or F#m)

        F#(m?)          C#        G  Ab   G Ab
        boxed it up and buried it in the  ground... (3x)

e--------------------------------------------------------|
B--------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------------------6--------------------------------|
D-------4--strum-a------6--6-----------------------------|
A-------4--couple----------4--0---5/6--6--66--5/6--6--6--|
E-------2--times--------------0---3/4--4--44--3/4--4--4--|
                                   *      **

        F#(m?)           C#        G Ab  G Ab
        burned it up and thrown it away...

* = slide up a fret
**= pick down then up really fast


and for the harmonica break at the end, the crds are just
F#(m?)  Ab  C#  or some combination of crds used above.

sorry this was kinda vague, but play it along w/ the cd and it'll become
obvious.  lemme know if you come up with anything better...

whew, that's it for now...

As stated very vague! Also really really confusing. I can't figure this out, can someone please tab it out correctly, or in English? Thanks.
