Song: A Smart Kid (Acoustic)
Artist: Porcupine Tree
Album: Stupid Dream
Year: 1999

Tabbed by: andback@gmail.com


Here's a great song from PT's '99 album Stupid Dream. Transcribed using
the recording of Steven Wilsons live solo performance in Tel-Aviv. This
tab is not a 100% accurate representation of the studio version but rather
a cool way to play it acoustically.

Enjoy!


The chords:

Dsus2  [x x 0 2 3 0]
Am     [x 0 2 2 1 0]
Fmaj7  [x 3 3 2 1 0]
C      [x 3 2 0 1 0]
F      [1 3 3 2 1 1]
Em     [0 2 2 0 0 0]

Stranded here on planet earth
It's not much but it could be worse
Everything's free here, there's no crowds

Winter lasted five long years
No sun will come again I fear
Chemical harvest was sown


Chorus:

Dsus2    Am             Fmaj7        
             And I will wait for you
   
Dsus2    Am           Fmaj7
             Until the sky is blue

Dsus2    Am             Fmaj7
             And I will wait for you
   
Dsus2    Am           Fmaj7
             What else can I do?


Verse 3-4: (play the chords while keeping the riff in there)

Am                    C
   A spaceship from another star
   
Am                            C
   They ask me where all the people are

               F            Em
   What can I tell them?

I tell them I'm the only one
There was a war but I must have won
Please take me with you
 

Chorus


end on Fmaj7

Was going to tab it myself since i didn't find a tab a while ago, but now it's here and it's a good one. Cheers.
