Since there was only a Guitar Pro version of this song available and since
I have a ridiculously stupid job with lots of time to kill and my acoustic
guitar (my beautiful Franny) on hand, I'd spend a few moments and tab this
song.  Oh Yeah, Pavement is one of the best bands ever!

Intro Lead Guitar: This is repeated twice in the beginning and on the
second time through the ending is slightly different, it looks like this
instead: G-----4-6b-4~~--|
         D-4h6-----------|
This is played over the verse chords (It's basically the same progression
for the whole song, except that little bridge tab.)
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-7-4---4-7-4-4-4-----4------7-4---9-7-------------------------------------|
G-----6-----------4/6---6-4------6-----4-4-----4-4h6-4~~-------------------|
D------------------------------------------4h6-----------------------------|

B major                   Bb/B  Gm                  F#   E        F #
Lip Balm on watery Clay,   X     Relationships, Hey, hey, hey.

B                                             Bb/B   Gm
You kiss like a rock, but you know, i need it anyway angle for the ringside
            F#   E               F#
seats when they fall don't blame me.

B                            Bb/B    Gm           F#    E        F#
Bring on the major Leagues,          Bring on the major leagues,
B                            Bb/B    Gm           F#    E        F#
Bring on the major leagues,          Bring on the major Leagues.

B                                 Bb/B     Gm

B                                       Bb/B       Gm                F#
Songs of the law. Are they civilized or satanists? Cater to my walls and
E                      F#
see if they fall don't leave me.

This fill starts where e---------------------------------------|
the lyric "songs" is   B---------------------------------------|
sang under the B.      G-6/8-8-6-8b-6-4-6/8-8-6-8b-6-4---------|

They wear you down sometimes, kids like wine, magic christians chew the rind

REPEAT BRIDGE
USE THE TAB FOR THE BRIDGE PRESENTED EARLIER.

the rind Cause bad girls, Are always bad girls   LET EM IN!


That should do it.  I tried to provide all the fills and such for the most
part and I hope I didn't make it overly complicated. I usually just play
power chords but the full chords sound great too.

ENJOY.

That Gm is supposed to be G#minor. I have it tabbed as such but labeled it incorrectly. This tab is kind of confusing now that I look back at it. Oh well.
