La La Lie (by Jack's Mannequin)
From the "Everything in Transit" album
As interpreted by Joe G

This is a great song to play, easy chords too.
Put a capo on 3 to play in the correct key.

The Chords are:
C:        X32010
G:        320003
G/F#:     2X0003 (use your thumb!)
Em:       022000
D:        XX0232
Dsus2:    XX0230
Dsus2/F#: 2X0230 (use your thumb!)
Am:       X02210
And an asterisk (*) next to a chord means add the third fret on high e. So C* would be 
of x32010.  D* would be xx0233 which is technically called Dsus4, but why more than I 
to?

And if you didn't already know, a / after a chord means a different bass note.  So G/F# 
bass is F#, so it's 2X0003 or 220003 if you want.

I'm showing the intro a little more detailed than the rest of the song, but if you can 
the intro, you'll get the idea through the rest.

Intro:
C    C*    C*    C*
G    G     G     G/F#
Em   Em*   Em*   Em*
D*   D     Dsus2 D
C    C*    C*    C*
G    G     G     G/F#
Em   Em*   Em*   Em*
D*   D [into verse]


Dsus2 D         C                G
Guess what, I'm done writing you songs
            G/F# Em
You give up your job at the bank
        D/F#                        C
Proving money's not fun when you're gone
               G           G/F#
So this is the first verse
     Am
It's not very long
        D/F#
But I'm ready to move on

Dsus2 D         C                 G
Guess what, I'm done writing your book
           G/F# Em       Em*
The ending got  twisted around
        D/F#                    C
But for all of the hell that it took
               G     G/F#
The electrical wires
     Am
Were hung on the walls
       D/F#
In the room that I rent now

                       C       C*             G
Well actually I've got friends who (la la la lie)
          G/F# Em   Em*
Will help me   pull through
          D*/F# D/F#  Dsus2/F# D/F#
(La la la lie    la   la       lie)
C                  G          G/F#
The  spaceman that can't get high
Am                    D/F#
I'm coming back to my girl by July

Dsus2/F#    C     G              G/F#
Yeah, yeah, yeah.   That's right.

Em   Em*   Em*   Em*
D*   D     [into verse]

    Dsus2 D         C                G
So, guess what, I'm done drawing you pictures
          G/F#  Em
I'm dulling the day with the drink
     D                     C
In a parking garage by the theater
               G
We met for the movie
      Am
Every scene was a sign
        D/F
We made out through their meaning

              C       C*            G
Well I've got friends who (la la la lie)
          G/F# Em   Em*
Will help me   pull through
          D*/F#  D/F#  Dsus2/F# D/F#
(la la la lie    la    la       lie)
C               G          G/F#
A spaceman that can't get high
Am                    D/F#
I'm coming back to my girl by July
Dsus2/F#    C   ...
Yeah, yeah, yeah! Yeah!

...  C*    C*    C*
G    G     G     G/F#
Em   Em*   Em*   Em*
D*   D     Dsus2 D
C    C*    C*    C*
G    G     G     G/F#
Em   Em*   Em*   Em*
D*   D [into verse]

Dsus2 D         C                G
Guess what? I'm done writing you songs
        G/F#  Em
I'm far too unstable to settle
  D/F#                       C
I doubt that the doctors are wrong
                  G
So I'll wait by a palm tree,
G/F# Am           D/F#   D/F#
A    palm tree, a palm tree

     Dsus2/F#  C                  G
Well I've  got friends! (la la la lie)
        G/F Em   Em*
To help me  pull through
          D*/F#  D/F#  Dsus2/F# D/F#
(La la la lie    la    la       lie)
C                 G           G/F#
The spaceman that can't get high
Am                    D/F#
I'm coming back to my girl by July

     Dsus2/F#  C                 G
Well I've  got friends (la la la lie)
        G/F Em   Em*
To help me  pull through
          D*/F#  D/F#  Dsus2/F# D/F#
(La la la lie    la    la       lie)
C              G         G/F#
The song for a long goodbye
Am               D/F#
I'm coming back, I'm coming back
Dsus2/F#  C              G
to   my   girl (La la la lie)
     G/F#  Em*
Back to my girl
          D*/F#  D/F#  Dsus2/F# D/F#
(La la la lie    la    la       lie)
C              G         G/F#
The song for a long goodbye
Am                    D/F#  (hold and fade)
I'm coming back to my girl by July
