			     You Part The Waters - Cake
                            From: Motorcade of Generosity
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: bcaviator

Tuning: Standard

This song is primarily constructed with the first guitar playing 2-note intervals 
and repeating riffs.The second guitar strongly influences the syncopated / funk 
feel by playing one or two note passages with muted notes.

	| /  slide up
	| \  slide down
	| h  hammer-on
	| p  pull-off
	| ~  vibrato
	| +  harmonic
	| x  Mute note
	| b  bend (1/2 or full)

(also note: |----| does not equal a musical bar in this TAB, 
it only represents a break between passages to make it easier to piece together...)

Lyrics

VERSE 1

You part the waters
The same ones that I'm drowning in
You need your casual slaughters
And I'm the one who helps you win

CHORUS

You've got your grand piano
And you don't even play piano
I'm the one who plays piano
You don't even play piano
Alright...

VERSE 2

You part the waters
The same ones that I'm thirsty for
You invite your friends to tea
But when it's me you lock the door

VERSE 3

You've got your credit cards
And you thank your lucky stars
aaahh but...
But don't forget the ones who foot the bill

CHORUS

You've got your grand piano
And you don't even play piano
I'm the one who plays piano     Alright!
You don't even play piano

Owww... You part the waters...
