"Here Comes A Regular"
set tempo
 Band: The Replacements
 Song: Here Comes A Regular
 Album: Tim
 Year: 1985
 Key: F# Major
Contact: jdenicholls[at]hotmail.co.uk

Classic Replacements song, played on acoustic guitar. There are a few other
instruments on the record, but to get the best feel for the song you may as
well just play it with guitar and vocal.

Either you can play the song using bar chords, or you can capo the 6th fret
to get the nice sound of the open strings. I've noted the names of the 
chords so those of you without a capo can just use barre chords, but I 
recommend using a capo if you can. I'm pretty sure Paul Westerburg plays it 
with a capo on the record.

As well as playing normal chords Westerburg also has a habit of lifting and 
dropping certain fingers to add variation. I've written down a suggestion of
how to play it but I'd advise you to play through it a few times 
experimenting with odd chords. Listen through the record a few times and you 
will work it out.

Credit to previous tabbers from UG, I got the chord progression from them.

Whole Song

Verse One
       F#         C#        B
Well a person can work up a mean mean thirst
        F#          C#              B     
after a hard day of nothin' much at all
F#                    C#          B       
Summer's passed, it's too late to cut the grass

There ain't much to rake anyway in the fall

And sometimes I just ain't in the mood
   F#               C#                B
to take my place in back with the loudmouths
              F#             C#                  B 
You're like a picture on the fridge that's never stocked with food

Used to live at home, now I stay at the house

Call out your name

Here comes a regular

Am I the only one here today?

Verse Three
       F#         	     C#        B
Well a drinkin' buddy that's bound to another town
F#              C#           B
Once the police made you go away
    F#                    C#                B
And even if you're in the arms of someone's baby now
            F#                C#       B
I'll take a great big whiskey to ya anyway

Everybody wants to be someone's here
Someone's gonna show up, never fear

       F#   A#m     B
'cause here comes a regular

Am I the only one who feels ashamed?

Verse Four
F#            C#       B
Kneeling alongside old Sad eyes
	F#                 C#            	    B
He says opportunity knocks once then the door slams shut
      F#              	       C#            B
All I know is I'm sick of everything that my money can buy

The fool who wastes his life, God rest his guts

Verse Five

  First the lights, then the collar goes up, the wind begins to blow
F#                   C#            B
  Turn your back on a pay-you-back, last call
F#               C#                         B
  First the glass, then the leaves that pass, then comes the snow
F#                   C#            B
  Ain't much to rake anyway in the fall
