                             Drowning - MXPX
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:NOFXMIKE
Email:no

Tuning:EADgbe

CHords: E5 C#5 G#5 A5 B5
Reason for update: The verse was missing the resolve to E. Fixed. Now it sounds right. I 
also changed a few chord positions in the song to sound more like the album recording.

VERSE 2:
E5
With blankets wrapped around so tight
G#5
That in my dreams my hands are tied
C#5             A5               E5
Now I'm slow-mo running for the door
(E5)                               G#5
I've got no clue where it leads, but my lungs need some air to breathe
C#5                A5                 E5
My eyelids shutter then fall to the floor
