Song: "I Wish I Was The Moon"
Artist: Neko Case
Album: Blacklisted (2002)

Transcribed by: Freeze1186 (Freeze1186@neo.rr.com)

*UPDATE* Some are suggesting playing a C/B instead of  G/B. 
I think the chord is actually something like Gadd11/B
Scary name, but an easy chord:  x2001x 
Use your ears and pick which one you think sounds best.

INTRO (0:00)

C Gadd11/B C F

VERSE 1 (0:10)

C                 Gadd11/B

Chimney falls and lovers blaze

Am                 F

Thought that I was young

         C                  Gadd11/B

Now I've freezing hands and bloodless veins

   Am              F

As numb as I've be-come

       F

I'm so tired

  Fm                     C

I wish I was the moon to-night


VERSE 2 (0:40)


F                             C

Last night I dreamt I had for-got-ten my name

             F

'Cause I had sold my soul

          Am

but awoke just the same

       F

I'm so lonely

  Fm                     C

I wish I was the moon to-night


INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE (1:04)

C

(1:09)

C Gadd11/B Am F (x3)

(1:22)

F


VERSES 3 & 4 (1:25) Same chords as VERSE 1


God blessed me, I'm a free man
With no place free to go
I'm paralyzed and collared-tight
No pills for what I fear

This is crazy
I wish I was the moon tonight

Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands & bloodless veins
As numb as I've become

I'm so tired,
I wish I was the moon tonight


BRIDGE (2:16)

F                                    C

How will you know if you found me at last?



'Cause I'll be the one, be the one,

Gadd11/B                Am          F

be the one with my heart in my lap


I'm so tired, I'm so tired

  Fm                     C

I wish I was the moon to-night


INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE (2:46)

F          C

(2:55)

C   Gadd11/B  Am  F


(3:01)

F

  I'm so tired, I'm so tired

  Fm

I wish I was the moon...

       F

I'm so tired, I'm so tired

  Fm                     C

I wish I was the moon to-night.

        I first heard this song when my friend asked if we could learn it to play at a
fundraiser. I couldn't find a tab, so I tried to figure it out by ear. I think what I 
have here
is pretty close, but let me know if you think anything is off, or you've found sound 
something that sounds better. My e-mail is: Freeze1186@neo.rr.com.

Great tab! Not 100% on the G/B chord but it works ok.

The G/B isn't bad, but somehow Cmaj7 sounds better to me. Thanks for the tab!
