Rip Van Winkle - Shannon and the Clams (Dreams in the Rat House, 2013)

Chords:
     F#       D#m      B        C#
e|---9--------6--------7--------9-----|
B|---11-------7--------7--------9-----|
G|---11-------8--------8--------10----|
D|---11-------8--------9--------11----|
A|---9--------6--------9--------11----|
E|---------------------7--------9-----|

Intro/Verses Riff:

Here's the riff that they play in the intro and for all the verses. It's based around two simple chords
with some notes thrown in:

     F#             D#m               F#             D#m
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------11-------------7-----------------11-------------7--------------------|
G|------11-------------8-----------------11-------------8--------------------|
D|------11-------------8-----------------11-------------8--------------------|
A|---9----------8---6----------5------9----------8---6----------5------------|
E|----------9--------------6-----------------9--------------6----------------|

The other parts mainly just barre chords which are below with the lyrics. For the verse parts I just put
the chords where they come in with the lines, but they play all the notes written above in the song as well.

Intro:

     F#             D#m               F#             D#m
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------11-------------7-----------------11-------------7--------------------|
G|------11-------------8-----------------11-------------8--------------------|
D|------11-------------8-----------------11-------------8--------------------|
A|---9----------8---6----------5------9----------8---6----------5------------|
E|----------9--------------6-----------------9--------------6----------------|

       F#                         D#m
You're sleeping all your moments away
    F#                             D#m
I'm counting every breath that you take
B                    C#           B                C#
You've been snoozing 20 years and lengthening that beard

    F#                      D#m
You whittled a squirrel for me
    F#                     D#m
And counted lemons on your tree
    B            C#                   B            C#
And every time I turn around and have given up for good


          F#              D#m
You say, "Hey, it'll be alright"
         F#         D#m
I said, "Hey, I'm alright"
B            C#                   B            C#
Every time I turn around and have given up for good


       F#                                D#m
You're haunted by the things that you've seen
  F#                          D#m
I know they give you terrible dreams
B                  C#               B               C#
We all know you'll wake up soon and rattle off that dust

        F#                 D#m
You can spot a hawk a mile away
F#                         D#m   
Cursing all those old blue jays
    B            C#                   B            C#
But every time I turn around and have given up for good


          F#         D#M
You say, "Hey, I'm alright"
           F#         D#m
You said, "Hey, I'm alright"
B            C#                   B            C#
Every time I turn around and have given up for good

Can't  fill  any  more  plates,  move  any  more  chairs

10   10            C#     C#                  
It's been too many years, it's been too many 

(play intro/verse stuff over this line)
 years

End with the intro/verse riff until you're ready to stop playing the song.
