Song: A Boy And His Machine Gun
Band: Matthew Good Band
Album: Beautiful Midnight
Tabbed by: Devil Monkey 

This whole song is tuned down a half step, so keep that in mind.  You won't be
able to actually play along unless you tune down, cause it's not possible, you'd
have to play a half-step up.  Anyway...


B5 B5/Bb?              B5           B5/Bb
Don't move, stay right where you are
B5 B5/Bb   B5    B5/Bb
Talking can only give you away
E5                           C#m5
And there's so nothing to say

(Same pattern)
The voices say hello
Imprisoned, they're invisible
               E5                 C#m5
But we look a lot alike, we look a lot alike

This is boring, all we talk about is you
C'mon give me a reason
          E5              C#m5
A boy and his machine gun

E          B   G#m      F#
If you're fi-nished strugglin'
E       B  G#m    F#
Are ya fr-ee tonight?
E        B            G#m
Did they stick you in here
    F#            E (let fade)
Cuz you weren't workin right?

Don't move, stay just like you are
You look sane, motionless like that
So very flat
It's amazin what velocity can do
When human beings are in season
                 E5              C#m5
A boy and his machine gun
                        E5         C#m5
If you're quiet we might see some

When you're finished strugglin'
Are ya free tonight?
Did they stick you in here
Cuz you weren't workin' right?
E, B, G#m, F#

(same pattern)
There's a TV in every room
And it's free, even pay-per-view
Which you'll need if no one's
Gonna visit you
Fuckin' Animal

E   F#    B         C#m
I know who you're waiting for
E   F#    B     C#m
            no one's comin' though

Now it changes to this:


(over that):

So fuck you and your principals
And fuck whatever made me
Perhaps you think I'm evil
What does it matter if we're crazy?

Then that part repeats, and you end on G#m
