               Fading West - Switchfoot - The Edge of The Earth EP
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Davey Fuller
E-mail:

Tuning: standard - EADGBE

This is one of my favourite songs of all time and I believe it's one of Switchfoot's 
greatest songs to date. I thought I'd set out a little tab for some acoustic bits that 
I've heard here and there.
Please comment any corrections! :)


Chord Key: (You can use any variety of these chords at any point in the song, 
whatever sounds best to you. I like the open B up on seventh, it sounds correct to me 
in the chorus!)

B - 799800 // x24400 (Jon plays the x24400 in the film scene) 
A - 577600 // x02200
E - 022100 // x79900 // x222000
D# - 111313121111 // x68886 (these are eleven's thirteen's and twelve!!)
G#m - 466400 // x66400
F# - 244322

BITS TO NOTE FOR AN ADDED GUITAR IF YOU'RE RECORDING

Intro riff (heard as string ensemble on record)
This is the closest I can get to the bit Drew plays in the 
film scene when they're jamming in Bali. Just mess around 
sliding up and down on the D string between 7,9,11,13 and 14, 
you'll hear it.)

Here are the chords. 

Verse. 

B            A
The sun goes down for the summer 
B       A
Mirror sky for the water 
B        A              E
And I am fading westward too
                B
Fading west with you 

B          A
Life won't sing like I want it
B           A
The traffic post-modern sonnet
B           A             E
The traffic hums a dirty tune
            B
Fading west with you 


Chorus. 

B                                            E
I'm heading back to the west coast where I'm from
B                                            E
I'm heading back to the left coast where I belong
G#m         F#               E
California's calling me back home

Fading west with you

Verse 

B       A
Keep my mind over matter 
B              A
Cos' I've seen my hopes shatter
B            A                   E
They told me lies I thought were true
            B
Fading west with you


Pre-Chorus.

A
The sun goes down
G#m
We were already gone


Chorus. 

B                                            E
I'm heading back to the west coast where I'm from
B                                            E
I'm heading back to the left coast where I belong
G#m          F#              E
California's calling me back home
                B
I'm fading west with you!



Bridge.

D#                G#m
When you know I'm alone
E
Feel like I'm caving in
D#                G#m
When you leave me alone 
           E
I start to wonder 
      F#     E     F#                 B
Where have I been, where have I been?



Chorus. 

B                                            E
I'm heading back to the west coast where I'm from
B                                            E
I'm heading back to the left coast where I belong
G#m         F#               E
California's calling me back home


(California waters bit stays on G#m - F# - E progression I believe)
