                        Ode to My Family -The Cranberries
                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  from the album: No Need to Argue
 					  

Intro:

For the intro, play the chords in an arpeggio style.

	D	Bm	F#m	G

Verse:

When playing the chords, pick the strings in random order avoiding the bass
strings.

	D	Bm	F#m		 G
Understand the things I say, don't turn away from me

      D		   Bm		F#m	G	
Cause I spent half my life out there, you wouldn't disagree.

   D	  Bm	D    Bm	      F#m	         G
D'you see me, d'you see, do you like me, do you like me standing there.

   D      Bm    D    Bm       F#m                F#m      G
D'you notice, d'you know, do you see me, do you see me, does anyone care.


Chorus:

D       Bm                F#m              G
Unhappiness, where's when I was young, and we didn't give a damn.

  D              Bm        F#m         G 
'Cause we were raised, to see life as fun and take it if we can.

D       Bm            F#m                               G
My mother, my mother she hold me, did she hold me, when I was out there.

D       Bm                 F#m                        G
My father, my father, he liked me, oh he liked me, does anyone care.


Verse 2:

Understand what I've become, it wasn't my design.
And people everywhere think, something better than I am.
But I miss you, I miss 'cause I liked it, I liked it, when I was out there.
D'you know this, d'you know, you did not find me, you did not find,
   does anyone care.

Repeat chorus


D: xx0232
Bm: 224432
F#m: 244322
G: 320033

-----
Ode to My Family
by the Cranberries

Capo at the 2nd fret.

Just the basic cords:

C  X32010
Am X02210
Em 022000
F  133211

It starts with a strum of the chords, in the order C-Am-Em-F, a little bit
after she starts with the Doo-doo-doo-doots. ^_^

Shortly after, you go to the picking,  I find it sorta sounds like:

  C                          Am                  Em
e-0------0-------0----0------0------0-------0----0------0-------0----
B---1------1---1---1----1------1------1---1---1----0------0---0---0--
G-----0------0------------2------2------2------------0------0--------
D--------------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

  F
e-1------------------------------------------------------------------
B---1----------------------------------------------------------------
G-----2-0h2p0-0h2p0--------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

... and so on.  You might find it works better some other way, but this way
sounds fine.  Just follow along with the previous version of this song, 
above.

Good Luck, and happy playing.

Another Version:
_____________________--

Cranberries, Ode to my family.

 Well, I'm not a expert, but it seems to me that the apaggio to this song is:

  C                          Am                    Em
e------------------------------------------------------------------------
B---1------1-----1-----1------1-----1----1----1------0----0----0----0----
G-----0------0-----0-----0------2-----2----2----2------0----0----0----0--
D-------2------2-----2-----2------2-----2----2----2------2----2----2---2-
A---3-------------------------0------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------0-------------------

  G
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B--0--------------------------------------------------------------------
G----0------------------------------------------------------------------
D------0----0/2/0-0/2/0-------------------------------------------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E--2--------------------------------------------------------------------

 And then the rest of the song is pice of cake.
 By the way some people put some really bad transcriptions on here from time 
 to time, so don't post something you're not sure about.
