Song Title: Ahead by a Century
Artist: The Tragically Hip

Ahead by a Century
by The Tragically Hip
from the CD "Trouble at the Henhouse"

There is a lot going on in this song, so the bass is hard to pick out

This is waht is played when Gord Downie isn't singing

D               67 67 
A 5 5 5 5 5

Then the vocals kick in

    First we'd climb a tree...
G                     5
D               5 7
A 5 5 5 5 5 


A 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 

That is pretty close, if you think it's wrong, send in the corrections


First we'd climb a tree
and maybe then we'd talk
or sit silently
and listen to our thoughts
with illusions of someday
casting a golden light
no dress rehearsal,
this is our life
that's when the hornet stung me
and I had a feverish dream
with revenge and doubt
tonight we smoke them out

You are ahead by a century

Stare in the morning shroud
and then the day began
I tlted your cloud,
you tilted my hand
rain falls in real time
and rain fell through the night
no dress rehearsal, this is our life

That's when the hornet stung me
and I had a serious dream
with revenge and doubt
tonight, we smoked them out

You are ahead by a century
but this is our life
and disappointing you's gettin'
me down
