Smash Mouth - Waste

Tabbed by Drew Smajda

Great song, one of my favorites, finally tabbed!

   CHORDS:
   -------
        EADGBE          EADGBE
   B   (x2444x)    Am7 (x02013)
   F#m (244222)    D*  (x54035)
   Em7 (022030)    G*  (3x0002)
   A7  (x02020)    F#* (244300)
   E*  (054032)
   
   Great song by a great band! This is the first non-happy song I've
   heard from them. Like with all their songs, you have to tune down
   one note to play along to the CD.
   
   
   VERSE 1:
   --------
   B                   F#m
     I'm lookin' at my watch
   Em7                            A7 
      At all the time that's been stolen
   B                     F#m
     When I was carrying you
   Em7                              A7 
     It seems I've tripped and I've fallen
   
   
   VERSE 2: [play like verse 1]
   --------
   Don't want no one to ache
   Oh to be drunk and forgetful
   To get out of this unscathed
   Oh to be free and inhuman
   
   
   CHORUS: [see tab below]
   -------
   E*        A7
   Some, may say
     E*       Am7
   I love, to play
            D*                 G*      F#* 
   When the chance is there to take
   
   
   CHORUS-TAB:
   -----------
      E*              A7              E*             Am7
   E|---------------------------------------2--------------3--
   B|--------3--------------2---------------3------------1-1--
   G|------0--------------0---------------0------------0------
   D|----4--------0-----2---------------4---------------------
   A|-----------2-----0---------0h2------------------0-------
   E|-0-------------------------------0---------0-------------
   
         D*                G*          F*
   E-------------5-------------2---------------0-0-|
   B-----------3-3---------------0-------------0-0-|
   G--------------------------------------3-3--3-3-| <- strum that chord
   D---------4--------4------0---------4--4-4--4-4-|    a few more times
   A-0---3/5----------5----------------4--4-4--4-4-|
   E-----------------------3-----------2--2-2--2-2-|
   
    [the second and third time you play the chorus tab in the song it
     might have some tiny variations, but I don't wanna bother to tab
     them out, it's basically the same.]
   
   
   VERSE 3: [play like verse 1]
   --------
   I'm moppin' up the floor
   From messy recipes of romance
   I'm packin' up the pots
   Too many cooks in the kitchen
   
   
   CHORUS: [play like previous chorus]
   -------
   Some, may say
   I love, to let
   a good thing go to waste
   I let it go to waste
   
   
   GUITAR-SOLO:
   ------------
      B           F#m           Em7            A7
   E|-----------------------------------------------
   B|-----------------------------------------------
   G|-----------------------------------------------
   D|-1---1-2-4-------------------------------------   h = hammer-on
   A|-----------2h4-0-----0-0h2------2-2-4-5-4/5-4--   / = slide up
   E|---------------------------0-------------------
   
         B            F#m          Em7         A7
   E-------------------------------3-----3-5-7-7-5--------5----|
   B-----4----4-5-7-4h5-2--------------------------------------|
   G-----4----4-6-8-4h6-2------2/4-------4-6-7-7-6----4/6---6--|
   D-----------------------------------------------------------|
   A--0--------------------------------------------------------|
   E-----------------------------------------------------------|
   
   
   BRIDGE:
   -------
   B                F#m           Em7              A7
   Let a good thing go to waste a good thing go to waste
   B                F#m           Em7              A7
   Let a good thing go to waste a good thing go to waste
   
   
   [PLAY CHORUS-TAB ONCE]
   
   
   VERSE 4:
   --------
   B                   F#m
     I'm lookin' at my watch
   Em7                            A7 
      At all the time that's been stolen
   B                     F#m
     When I was carrying you
   Em7                              A7 
     It seems I've tripped and I've fallen
