Banal - Bill Nelson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: axe victim

Email: Leave a message on my  ‘Ultimate Guitar’  profile or comment 
here and I’ll get back to you.

From Bill Nelsons solo output, the first track from the
Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam album.  One of his most popular 
guitar solos too, so I have attempted to tab it.

Here's a link to his myspace page.

Lyrics:

Every sound I hear
Seems to sound the same 
Every face I see
Seems the same to me

Banal...

Every book I've read 
Says the same old thing 
Everything I've said 
Has that same old ring

Banal...


I know you, you know me
Talk about it constantly
Sky of blue, sea of green
Only fools harbour dreams


Everyone I meet 
Hands me the same old line
Buildings in the street
Display familiar signs 

Programmes on TV
Employ the same device
Their warm humanity
Just leaves me cold as ice

Banal...
