Sick Of Me
from Reckoning
by Ani Difranco
Tuning: Standard

Here's my own simple simple version of "Sick Of Me", 
fun to play and pretty to listen to.... I've never 
seen the proper tabs for this song, this may be nothing
like the real method but we can't all be guitar ninjas 
like Ani, and it fits the melody of the lyrics perfectly 
so... enjoy! Any problems or gratuitous praise email me 
at elsiemarley(at)gmail.com.

In 3/4 time, play with a country/swing rhythm.... 
vocals start on a B note if that's any help.

Chords you need... some are kinda made up

INTRO: (E Aadd9 E A7)

VERSE
E           Aadd9
how sick of me
         E
must you be
    A
by now
              E             Aadd9
while you're standing just outside
              E          A7
of what your pride will allow
        E              Aadd9
always reaching into yourself
           E            A
to find a new way to understand me
          E                     Aadd9
when i'm sure that there's no one else
        E
in the world
              A7
who could withstand me

CHORUS
     E                   Aadd9
the first person in your life
    E*          F#*
to ever really matter
                E
is saying the last thing
      F#*        E*
that you want to hear
                          F#*
and you are listening hard
                              A
through the splintering shards
                       F#***
of your life as it shatters
                     A7
and you're standing firm
                    F#*
and you're staying close
                    E
and you're seeing clear


2ND VERSE (Same as the first)
i took to the stage
with my outrage
in the bad old days
when you were the make-me-mad guy
but the songs
they come out more slowly
now that i am the bad guy
and i say, i'm sorry i'm so crazy
I am astounded by your patience
and you say, believe it or not, baby
the joy you bring me
still outweighs it


CHORUS
the first person in your life
to ever really matter
is saying the last thing
that you want to hear
and you are listening hard
through the splintering shards
of your life as it shatters
and you're standing firm
and you're staying close
and you're seeing clear

***(Insert instrumental-y bit here...
     I like to go F#* Am E E x2)***

 E         Aadd9
how sick of me
         E
must you be
    A7
by now?

(Slow down to finish on E)


Cheers,
