Band: The Supervillains
Song: Beaches
Album: Grow Yer Own

This is a great song off of the Supervillains’ first album, “Grow Yer Own”. It’s a
easy song. All together it’s four chords: C, F, Fm, and G.
I play the verses with a reggae rhythm (on the upbeat) on the C’s and just strum the
and Fm’s, like they do in the song. The chorus, bridge and solo I play the same, strum the
F’s, and Fm’s and play the C’s on the upbeat.
I’m pretty sure this is spot on. I could be wrong though, the guitar gets droned out
the horns at a few parts, but it think it is 100% correct. But as far as I know it’s the
Supervillains tab out there, so deal with it. And it sounds great on the ukulele! 
what I figured the song out on, by the way.)

(D)	      D
When you don't have anything

Moon tide, got the stars outside, it’s a matter of time to rise and shine
  C      Cm

D
But I won't survive with a 9 to 5 want to play till 2 and sleep till noon,

         C                     D

*I like to add a little something to the last chorus/outro. I add another line of
same as those above so it goes like this instead:
(Cm)	         D
Cuz when you don't have anything,
         C                       D
then you don't have nothing to lose.
(D)	      D
When you don't have anything
         C                     D
then you don't have nothing to  loooooose.
(D)	      D              C(keep rhythm, one measure)
When you don't have anything........
         D                     D#(let ring)
then you don't have nothing to lose.
(D)	      D
When you don't have anything
         C                     D
then you don't have nothing to lose.

You can make the vocals sound pretty cool for the 3rd line in that, and it just adds a
something. That would be MY interpretation, and the chorus above it is the correct way.
You’ll have to practice singing along with the song a few times, because the vocals have
weird rhythm at some parts, but it’s not too bad. If you have any questions or
email me at matt@glenwright.com.
Good luck, and happy playing.
