Artist: Old 97's
Song: Adelaide
Tabbed by Tim D.

Played Capoed In The Third Fret
The Chords are: G D Em C Am C (stroked twice) G


G             D
Heaven i need drug
Em                                  C
Her eyes are all but fixed upon her coffee cup
Am                                        C
And looking down she tells you things are looking up
C (hit it 2x then back to G)  (Replay the verses exactly the same)
Take another slug

Heaven I had a dream
But now my lifes a nightmare of efficiency
She rattles off the things she never got for free
Gearing up to scream

G
D      Em  C
I remember when
G             D               Em      C 
I had you and you had so much promise then
G                  D                 Em    C 
You promised me that you would never leave again
Am                    C    Cx2 (Replay the chours exactly the same) 
To be broken you were made Adelaide

So I didn't realize this was off until I played to the recording, and I'm not 100% sure but I think the chorus goes like this:

G C G
I remember when
G C G
I had you and you had so much promise then
G C Am
You promised me that you would never leave again
C G Cx2
To be broken you were made Adelaide

That's also the last solo before the last verse, same progression. What's written here works harmonically but if you play along you may see that this is what he's doing. My harmonies sound better over this progression, too.

Still a great set of chords, though, well done.
