One of the greatest b-sides of all time. I can't believe it wasn't already on UGA!

You're My Favorite Waste Of Time (Marshall Crenshaw)
tabbed by burpo nobigfiles@hotmail.com Please rate and comment. Thanks!
(I think this is easier to play if you do it with barre chords exclusively.)

        F   G  C         G                  F        C              C C C#
You're myyyy,      baby, you're my favorite waste of time

Dm9                                Am             G               
Here I am, I'm playing daydreaming fool again, my favorite game
            Dm9                               Am 
And you are the one, who's got my head in the clouds above
           F          G
You're the one that I love and you're
        F     G      C          G                  F        C     C-C-C#
You're myyyy,             baby, you're my favorite waste of time

Dm9                                Am                G
I don't care, if being with you is meaningless and ridiculous
        Dm9                                   Am 
If it's wrong or right, I'm gonna give you my love tonight
      F      G
and tomorrow night, 'cause you're

        F   G  C         G                  F        C             
You're myyyy,      baby, you're my favorite waste of time (vamp out)

Many thanks for the chords. It is actually easier to play as all open position chords.

Rather than c# perhaps use open position C with thumb on the B note on bass E string,second fret.Then follow with Dm7sus (first fret E and B strings, second fret G string and third fret B string).Lift first finger off B string first fret on the word "daydreaming.." to get Dm.

On the "my" (before the words "favourite game") put thumb down on the second fret bass E string to get Am/F. Then to G as normal.

On "and you are" move second fret finger down on the G chord from the B note to get a E note on this fret.

Anyway all this adds a little interest to the chords.

I would change dm9 to dm7 to stay in first position
