Jesse Malin
Riding on the subway
The fine art of self destruction

My first tab so please go easy, any suggestions greatfully recieved.

Standard tuning: E A D G B E
Capo on 2nd fret or on 3rd if tuned down half a step like Jesse often does.

Bass intro
Em     G Em

    Em   G Em                  Em  G Em
The Harlem mammas they are laughing
They call me punk rock think they're cute
The pizza boys they keep on starin'
I guess they finally made it off their stoop

Em                    G
I don't even know and I don't even care x3
Oh yeah

      G         C
Since I've been hanging round
      G         C
Machines go up and down
      G         C          D  
Spray paint gospel on the beat
    G       C
Another billboard reads
    G       C
Come to Miami Beach
    G       C                D
A man sells pretzels in the heat
Riding on the subway

Em   G Em

Saints and sinners sweepstakes winners
Nine to five their smoking gun
Jazzman Jimmy's busked a million
Sometimes plays Duke Ellington for fun

I don't even know and I don't even care x3
Oh yeah

I've been hanging round
In the underground
One day I saw you in your seat
Past the transit cops
A three-card monty box
If I only had the guts to speak
Riding on the subway

Mother told me yesterday
     G                               D
The things that God would never say before
       C                         G                          D
We'll hang around the radio and listen to the status quo go on
I'm all right until Sunday night when

I keep going down
Took the local round
A soul confession in my sleep
Ain't no wishing well
Underneath the El
I still hope someday we might meet
Riding on the subway

not even close but nice attempt..... standard tuning is E A D G B E... he is a half step down and capo at the third fret.

Ill see if I can assist with the correct chords when I get a chance

I changed the tuning now you are able to edit - the notes were right but the opposite way round, think I just chose standard tuning when I submitted the tab.

You may want to rate the tab now too:
