                  "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times"
                      (Brian Wilson / Tony Asher)

Verse 1:

	Bass 1 (electric):

	Gm7/C                    Bbadd9
	 v     v     v     v       v     v     v     v

	-------------------------|-------------------------|
	-------------------------|-------------------------|
	-3--------------------3--|-1--------------------1--|
	-------------------------|-------------------------|

	I keep looking for a place to fit in

	Bass 1:

	Ab9                      Dm7/G
	 v     v     v     v       v     v     v     v

	-4--------------------4--|-3--------3--3--------3--|

	Where I can speak my mind

	Gm7/C                   Bbadd9
	I've been trying hard to find the people
	    Ab9              Dm7/G  G7-9
	That I won't leave behind

	     Eb        Eb/F
	They say I got brains
	         Dm7        Gm7    Dm7/G
	But they ain't doin' me no good
	                  G7-9
	I wish they could

	Cm7       Dm7/C           Cm7     Dm7/C (chords implied by BG vocals)
	Each time things start to happen again
	Cm7           Dm7/C          Cm7         Dm7/C               F7
	I think I got something good goin' for myself but what goes wrong

Chorus:

	Cm7/G /C          F
	Sometimes I feel very sad
	Cm7/G /C          F
	Sometimes I feel very sad *
	Cm7/G /C          F
	Sometimes I feel very sad *

	Harpsichord and flute:

	Eb   A7+5  Dm7/G  G7-9
	/  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

	Cm7   Dm7/C    Cm7          F        Bb/C /Bb /Ab /G
	I guess I just wasn't made for these times

Verse 2:

	Every time I get the inspiration
	To go change things around
	No one wants to help me look for places
	Where new things might be found
	Where can I turn
	When my fair-weather friends cop out
	What's it all about

	Each time things start to happen again
	I think I got something good goin' for myself and what goes wrong

	(repeat chorus)

Theremin/winds break (arranged for four guitars):

	Bb/F  C/D   C/D    D    F/G   Eb5
	   Bb      Bb  Bb   G/A

Coda:

	Cm7    F6       Cm7        F6         Cm7
	I guess I just wasn't made for these times [2x]

	Cm7     F6    Dm7-5/Ab     G7       Cm7-5/Gb
	I guess I just wasn't made for these times
	                 F6
	(I guess I just wasn't made for these times)

	Cm7    F6       Cm7        F6         Cm7
	I guess I just wasn't made for these times [repeat; fade]


* according to Mark Linett (Endless Summer Quarterly, 12/94), the
  layered vocal parts on these lines are:

  (lead vocal):  Sometimes I feel very sad
                 Ain't found the right thing I can put my heart and soul into
                 People I know don't want to be where I'm at
                 O quando per e, un dia per e  [Italian?  Portuguese?]
