	    'Tractor Rape Chain' by Guided by Voices
                 from the album 'Bee Thousand'

  standard tuning (EBGDAE top to bottom)

  NOTE: I haven't tabbed the acoustic intro; if you want to
  experiment, tune your guitar slightly flat from standard
  tuning and use variations of the verse chords.

  Also, I haven't included exact number of keystrokes in verse
  progression; I tabbed it to show different voicings I use for
  same named chords in the verse. If you have other voicings you
  prefer to use for these chords, be my guest (gee, thanks dude).

                   verse progression

     ****** how it all goes together ******

  (acoustic intro not included)

  (play verse progression 2x no vocals....)

  (then continue to play verse progression while singing...)

    Asus2     A         Asus4   A Asus2 A   A  Asus2 A
    why is it everytime i think about you
    Asus2              A            Asus4
    something that you have said or implied
             A Asus2 A  A  Asus2 A
    makes me doubt you
    Asus2                 A      Asus4
    then i look into your cynical eyes
         A Asus2 A   A  Asus2 A
    and i know it
    Asus2                A        Asus4
    as if it never meant anything to me

  (chorus)
    D                                  A                 A/G#
    parallel lines on a slow decline   tractor rape chain
    D                Bm                  A                 F#m
    better yet  lets all get wet  on the tractor rape chain
    E                     D
    speed up slow down go all around in the end

   (again, play verse progression 2x no vocals....)

   (..and continue to play verse progression while singing...)

    Asus2                  A        Asus4    A Asus2 A  A  Asus2 A
    in the first place its probably just paranoia
    Asus2                    A 
    but theres a ghost in my room
           Asus4          A Asus2 A A Asus2 A
    and he says i better run
    Asus2         A            Asus4    A  Asus2 A A Asus2 A
    its a thing i know   its a thing i believe in
              E
    won't you tell it to go away?

    (repeat chorus)
