This is my first Elliott Smith tablature. It's in standard tuning, two half steps down.
I play the E, F, and G with the same fingering, which makes chord changes quick. I 
strum this with my thumb on the bass runs and my first three fingers on the chord strums.

I also play two two-note riffs after the Em's in the verses.

These might be lead guitar in the recording, but it's easy to add them solo.

        D                 F       C Em Am
In storyville, I fucked a cop
            D            F       C Em Am
Amped up on prescription pills
                D          F     C Em C
That brought my heart to a stop
              F                   E     F          G
And I want to tell you, there's a riot coming
                   Am       E
Like a drug in the water
               F              G
A punch in the stomach makes 
          Am          D F C Em Am
Sons into daughters
        D           F         C Em Am
I met a girl on the square
              D              F        C Em C
Who showed me how to kill my cares
                F                             C
But once that's done, man, there's nothing to do
               F                    E
Time's running backwards for me and you
               F         G
There's a riot coming
                   Am     E
Like a drug in the water
               F                       G
A punch in the stomach makes
          Am
Sons into daughters
E         F             G                 Am          D F F Fm
My body's running, but I don't see why it bothers…

Am
            D                        F        C Em Am
Sat down in jail with this friend of mine
          D               F      C Em Am
Who never closed both his eyes
                     D                F      C Em C
But one was shut all the time
             F                   C
To cover the thing he was scared of
                          F
While he watched with the other
            E    F          G
There was a riot coming
                   Am     E
Like a drug in the water
               F             G
A punch in the stomach makes
          Am
Sons into daughters
  E       F              G
My body's running, but I
                 Am
Don't see why it bothers
          E    F
There's a riot coming
          G    Am
There's a riot coming
          E     F            G Am
There's a riot coming
