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

[Interlude]

(1:04)
C
(1:09)
C Gadd11/B Am F (x3)
(1:22)
F

[Verse 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

[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.

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

Actually scratch that, the G/B is great too :)

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