Verse 1:

Am                    C
First the mic then a half cigarette
F        D7/F#   G
Singing cathy's clown
            Dm                  Am
That's the man she's married to now
Bsus                     E7
That's the girl that he takes around town
       Am                   C
She appears composed so she is i suppose
F        D7/F#  G
Who can really tell
     Dm                 Am
She shows no emotion at all
 Bsus                     E7
Stares into space like a dead china doll

Chorus:
Am         C     F        C       F          C        G  Am
I'm never gonna know you now, but i'm gonna love you anyhow

Repeat intro (as it's played the second time through)

Verse 2:
Am                          C
Now she's done and they're calling someone
F         D7/F#  G
Such a familiar name
        Dm                     Am
I'm so glad that my memory's remote
         Bsus                   E7
Cos i'm doing just fine hour to hour note to note
Am                C
Here it is the revenge to the tune
F      D7/F#  G
You're no    good
          Dm                              Am
You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Bsus                     E7
Can't you tell that it's well understood

Repeat chorus

Dm                    F9            C      G/B    Am
I'm here today and expected to stay on and on and on
     Dm
I'm tired
     F
I'm tired

Verse 3:

Am                  C
Looking out on the substitute scene
F      D7/F# G
Still going strong
 Dm   Am
XO   mom
Bsus             E7
It's okay its alright nothing's wrong
Am                   C
Tell mr. Man with impossible plans
         F    D7/F#  G
To just leave me   alone
        Dm                  Am
In the place where i make no mistakes
Bsus                  E7
In the place where i have what it takes

Waltz #2 (XO)
Elliott Smith

First of all let it be said that this tab is probably more
representative
of some of Elliott's live versions than the album version...said!
Also a big thanks to Scott and Chadwick for getting me started.


Alternate tuning: tune b-string to c and down half a step

Intro:

Am (x02200) (4 bars)

Play this two times:


----0-0-----0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-----0-0--------0-0------|
----0-0-----0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-----0-0--------0-0------|
--2----4S5-0-------------------------0--------------0-0------|
------------------3------2------3------2-----0-2-0-----------|
---------------------------------------------------3----2----|
-------------------------------------------------------------|

then

---0-0-0---0-0-----0-0-0-0-0----|
---0-0-0---0-0-----0-0-0-0-0----|
---0-0-0---0-0-----0-0-0-0-0----|
--------------------------------|
-3-------------2-3--------------|
---------3----------------------|

Verse 1: I play the Am and C chords by plucking Am with root a then e,
and
C with root C then G...kinda country style!

First the mic then a half cigarette

She appears composed so she is i suppose
F        D7/F#  G

She shows no emotion at all
 B?                     E7
Stares into space like a dead china doll

Chorus: Either play the intro twice or the chords once and then the
intro
once...i actually favour playing the intro twice! If you care! :)

Am         C     F        C       F          C        G  Am

by step, i believe a "whole step" is meant... aka, tuning like this:

D G C F A D

I also disagree with the chord form for D7/F#, even though it's just an awkward chord in general, a much easier way to play it is:

XX4535

In the intro and chorus, it's played like you said, but the C transition is different

-0--0--0-0---------0----------------------
