Tidal Waves
by Matt Duke
Tabbed by Ben Mascioli

Capo on 3rd Fret
F: 320033
F: x32033
G: x00233
Am:022033

Intro:
F F G F
Am F G
(Note: On the transition from the G to the Em, walk the sixth string from 3 to 0)
              F      F           G             F
So here's the note I left by the fireplace and ash
             Am                F                  G
From all the notes that I had burned not long ago.
               F    F             G                    F
It's great how severing all these ties can make things right,
             Am                  F              G
Or at least less wrong than they ever were before.

               F        F           G                  F
Those days I'd sit, pensive, by the window and I could taste
            Am         F                  G
The awful flavor of nostalgia mixed with hurt.
           F                  F
But now my mouth, my mouth is dry.
           G                       F
I choke on logic and my tongue is tied
                  Am           F                    G
From reciting inspired bible verses and foolish lies.

      Am                         
They say that this world is a wide open road
     F           G          Am
And we're stuck holding the wheel,
       Am                           F                      G
But in one hand's a whiskey and the other's too drunk to steer,
                       F      
So where do we go from here?

F F G F
Am F G
              F                           F
I dance and I pray, I dance and pray for rain
             G                F
To wipe this earth out once again!-
                  Am            F                 G
And extend those forty days and nights indefinitely.
              F     F                    G            F
There will be tidal waves as all of our problems wash away,
                Am             F                  G
You can here my laughter just before I start to drown.

   Am
If everyone here is a child of God,
         F            G       Am
Then the world is a pitiless whore
         F                                                   G
And He's still playing favorites and behind on His child support.
                       F
So where do we go from here now?

F F G F
Am F G

Quietly, play each chord only once:
    Am                                    
The noose that we wear doesn't matter at all,
    F      G            Am
(Unless we kick out our feet)
    C  (begin to build back up...)                 D
Perhaps our salvation is to know that we're incomplete.


Back at regular volume:
              F                    F               
So here's the note, the note that counts,
           G            F
Explaining why I wanted out.
            Am
It reads in small print:
             F                   G
"I'm much to tired to think anymore..."

                       F
So where do we go from here?

Etc.
(Repeat "Where do we go from here now?" with the occasional vocal riffing til end.)
