Here’s my take on “Wet Sand”. Be careful about tempo because often the singing is fast
the strumming is slow. Remember to play it as you feel fight and don’t fall back on the
dictated buy the tab, it is there as a guide.

My sunny side is up and died

The universe will shift into a low

The travesties that we have seen

Treating me like Benzedrine

Automatic laughter from a pro

Em        G              D       Em
My what a good day for a take out bride

Ballorama beauty going toe to toe

I'm motivated by the lack of doubt

I'm concentrated but I’m looking out
E
The mother, the father, the daughter

G
Right on the verge is one more dose
    D
I’m traveling from coast to coast
   Em                            Bm
My theory isn't perfect but it's close
    G
I’m almost there, why should I care

My heart is hurting when I care

Someone opened up, let it show

The mother, the father, the daughter
