This is a tab for 'Laughing' by Pere Ubu, from the record 'The Modern Dance' (1978).
The points where I have written powerchords are actually played as specific chord voicings that I can't
quite hear. Feel free to correct me. The verses aren't fixed and are more of a jam than anything else. Just
try improvising a little.

Enjoy!!

[Chorus]
E
My baby says
G
We can live in the empty spaces of this life
E
My baby says
G
Far away the stars are coming all undone
E
My baby says
              G  
My baby says, But that's far away
And we're young
E
My baby says
G
And if the devil comes we'll shoot him with a gun

My baby says

We can live in the empty spaces of this life
E
My baby says
G
In the desert sands
Our hearts are brighter than the sun
E
My baby says
G
When the devil comes we'll shoot him with a gun
E
My baby says
              G  
My baby says, And if he shows his face
We'll laugh
