Great American Sharpshooter
Less Than Jake

Ok, here's a great song from LTJ's fifth album Hello Rockview (an incredibly awesome
by the way.) Some of the syncopated rhythms the guitarist uses, like in the second verse,
instance, are a little tricky especially to sing and play at the same time- but it 
fine played straight, too.

(solo gtr.)
Ab5    Db5      Ab5              Eb5
So you think of what it could've been
     Ab5                Db5           Ab5    (band enters) Eb5
When time is all you've lost it keeps burning through your head
              Ab5         Db5          Ab5          Eb5
(And now) you fall asleep standing but lie awake in bed
            Ab5        Db5    Ab5                  Eb5
(Watch the) clock drag on and think about what you should've said


[Pre-Chorus]
Db5 Gb5 Ab5      Db5
Oh- It's for the better
Gb5         Ab5
Your better half is gone.
Eb5 (////)    Gb5 (////)
It's OK - You didn't need her anyway.

[Chorus]
    Ab5             Db5            Eb5        Db5
And I don't want to hear you say, “Nobody can take her place,”
Ab5     Db5   Bb5   Db5
Woah oh oh oh oh... oh-oh-oh
    Ab5       Db5        Eb5                Db5
And what more can I say? You don't need her anyway.
Ab5     Db5   Bb5   Db5
Woah oh oh oh oh... oh-oh-oh


Ab5    Db5      Ab5              Eb5
So you think of how it should've been
     Ab5       Db5         Ab5                Eb5
And "It's just over" Keeps going through your head.
         Ab5               Db5   Ab5          Eb5
(You're) hearing all those words time & time again
            Ab5       Db5       Ab5                  Eb5
(Watch the) phone all night and think about what you should've said

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

[Breakdown] (solo gtr.)
Ab5     Db5   Eb5   Db5
Woah oh oh oh oh... oh-oh-oh
Ab5     Db5   Bb5   Db5
Woah oh oh oh oh... oh-oh-oh
Ab5     Db5   Eb5   Db5
Woah oh oh oh oh... oh-oh-oh
Ab5     Db5   Bb5   Db5
Woah oh oh oh oh... oh-oh-oh

[Chorus]
[Ending]  Eb5   Db5   Ab5

Well there it is. This is a pretty good song to cover if you want an awesome LTJ song
don't have any horns in your band, because there aren't any horns in the recording (as far
I can tell anyway.)

Have Fun,
Jon
