quick lay and say goodbye
the dave matthews band

from the double cd bootleg: satellite of love
recorded live at the roseland, nyc -- 1995

music transcribed by:   evan c. parker
lyrics transcribed by:  sarah e. bierenbaum

only dave matthews can take a song about a one night stand, in which
you are hooking up with your best friend, causing both of you to be
cheating on your significant others, and make it sound romantic.

because this is dave there is a *lot* of chord play... i did *not* write it
all down.  i've found that most people can't / won't read the transcriptions
anyway, and those who can actually read the transcriptions, don't need to
because they can figure it out for themsevles.

a hint though... he plays around with barre chords, a lot.

basic measures are these:
|  A   E   D   A  |  &  |  Bm  Bm  A   D  |  &  |  A   G   D   A  |

A - E - D - A  (x10)

              A                    E
so here we are tonight, you and i together
           D               A
the snow outside the fire bright
                A                       E
oh and in your eyes i can see what's on my mind
           D                     A
oh its this burning that's got me turning
     A             E
and fire burn on baby
        D          A
in my mind... outside
                     A                  E
so drink a glass of wine you'll feel better
        D                A
oh heavenly love, oh heavenly love

        Bm                        A                  D
oh say yeah, yeah tonight no place to go just want to hide
  Bm                             A                   D

     Bm                                    A - E - D - A

                   A                        E

I don't understand why you would waste your time to try and attempt tabbing this if you are so cynnical about the people that are going to read this.

For what it's worth, I couldn't find the song "Quick Lay" on the "Satellites of Love" album. I couldn't actually find the song anywhere on the DMB.com website.

Here is my tab for "Say Goodbye" by Dave Matthews Band:




Bm D A E
The chorus ends by holding the D.

B|-5-| Play this along with the CD and you'll hear the hammer-on.
G|-6-| It is done by lifting the pinky off the D-string, 7th fret
D|-7-| and putting it on the G-string, 7th fret and then releasing
A|-7-| and playing the A chord again, just before switching to the E.

G|-13-| Slide up to this chord from the A.

Dsus2 (I think):
