                             Badfish - Sublime
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: nonpoint42
Email: me2846@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

 These are the chords used in the intro:

   A    Bm    G
e|-------2----3-----------------------------|
B|-2-----3----3-----------------------------|
G|-2-----4----0-----------------------------|
D|-2-----4----0-----------------------------|
A|-0-----2----2-----------------------------|
E|-------2----3-----------------------------|

This is the order they are played in
A, Bm, A, G, A, Bm, A, G, A
the strumming pattern and number of beats are easy to figure out


[Verse chords]

   A   Bm  G  A5  D  E
e|-9----7-----------------------------------|
B|-10---7--8—10---7--9----------------------|
G|-9----7--7--9---7--9----------------------|
D|---------9------7--9----------------------|
A|-------------------7----------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|


[Verse]

A                         Bm
When you grab a hold of me
     G                       A5
Tell me I will never be set free
                    Bm
But I'm a parasite,
       G                          A
Creep and crawl I step into the night
               D
Two pints of booze,
         G                      A  (fill 1)
Tell me are you a bad fish too? (are you a...)
D                           A
Ain't got no money to spend
D                          A
I know the night will never end
D                   A
Lord knows I'm weak
            D                       E
Won't somebody get me off of this reef?


[Verse 2]
(same chords, same rhythm)

Baby you're a big blue whale
Grab the reef when all duck diving fails
I swim, but I wish I never learned
The water's too polluted with germs (fill 2)
I dive deep when it's ten feet over head
Grab the reef from underneath my bed. (underneath my bed but)- fill 3
Ain't got not quarrels with God.
Ain't got no time to grow old.
Lord knows I'm weak.
Won't some body get me off of this reef?

(Use a slide and slide it up the neck from the second fret to the 14th. It happens at the 
time as the last note of the solo.)

This seems like the more correct final fill...
