BLIND MELON - CHANGE

From the Album 'Blind Melon' (1992)

Songwriters: Shannon Hoon; Brad Smith; Christopher Thorn; Glen Graham; Roger 
Stevens.

A friend of mine introduced me to this song recently, and quickly added to my list 
of 'must knows'.  I thought it deserved a more thorough transcription, with full 
lyrics and chord timings.  Give the song a few listens (or check out the video on 
YouTube) to get a better idea of when to use the riff, lyric timing, etc.
As this is my first tab contribution, please feel free to give me any feedback, 
positive or negative.

Thanks & enjoy!

[INTRO] (Play chord riff 2x)


[1ST VERSE]

A                              G
  I don't feel the sun's commin out today 
       D              G            A
Stayin in, it's gonna find another way.
A                     G
As I sit here in this misery, 
        D                        G
I don't think I'll ever know lord, 
                 A
See the sun from here.


[CHORUS]

D       G             A   
   And oh, as I fade away.  
D              G              A
   They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
D                 G           A
 Hey look at him, I'll never live that way.
          G   D
But thats ok,  They're just afraid of change.

[Interlude] (Play chord riff)

   A       Asus4 A  Asus2  A  
   G       Gsus4 G  Gsus2  G  
   D       Dsus2 D  Dsus4  D  
   A       Asus4 A  Asus2  A  


[2ND VERSE]

A                                  G
And When you feel life ain't worth livin'
                          D
You've gotta stand up and take a look around you 
     G                  A
Then look way up to the sky.
A                                  G
And when your deepest thoughts are broken
        D                                G
Keep on dreamin boy, cause when you stop dreamin
            A
It's time to die.

D               G                 A
  And as we all play the darts of tomorrow
D                G                         A
  Some ways will work and other ways we'll play.
D               G                   A
  But I know we can't all stay here forever
             G        D                        A
So I want to write my words on the face of the day,

 (and then they'll paint it).

   They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
D                 G             A
   Hey look at him and where he is these days,
             G    D                 A
When life is hard you have to change.
             G    D                 A
When life is hard you have to change.
   G      D     A
Ooohhh, Hmmm, Hmmm, Hmmm
