No Myth (Michael Penn)


[Verse]
C  Am  C  Am            F        G
So,       she says it's time she goes
                 F      G
But wanted to be sure I know
                    C       Am
She hopes we can be friends
C   Am   C  Am              F       G
I think,    yeah I guess we can say I
                    F       Em
But didn't think to ask her why
    F                    E
She blocked her eyes and drew the curtains
     Am             Am/G?  Cmaj7 ----> Am/G is 3X2210
with knots I've got yet to untie

[Chorus]
               F        Am          C
What if I were Romeo in black jeans?
              F          Am          G    Cmaj7
What if I was Heathcliff it's no myth
            F
Maybe she's just looking for
G          Bb
Someone to dance with

[Verse]
See, it was just to soon to tell
And looking for some parallel
Can be an endless game
We, we said goodbye before hello
My secrets she will never know
And if I dig a hole to China
I'll catch the first junk to Soho

[Chorus]
Bb                        Dm
Sometime from now you'll bow to pressure
C                              Am
Some things in life you cannot measure by degrees
Bb                        Dm
I'm between the poles and the equator
C                                 E7
Don't send no private investigator to find me please
E
'less he speaks Chinese
Am            Am/G?
And can dance like Astaire overseas

Cmaj7
Okay?

(Bridge - chords are the same as the Chorus.)

[Chorus]

[Chorus]


--------

This is how I hack it out, anyway. (I think this is right... did it mostly
from memory without having my guitar here.) It's probably a little
simplified. One note: Penn plays all of his F's as barre chords in the
first position (113211) to get a richer sound, but it sounds OK if you
don't.


Someone recently requested this, so here's my version:

"No Myth"   by Michael Penn    transcribed by MH from the album "March"
                               EDITED by maguri August 2015
---------------------------

Notes:
**  I think one of the chords in the chorus is Dm played
    at the fifth fret (557765).
*** I think MP says "on hashish" instead of "overseas"

Middle version works best on both acoustic and electric. That's the one I'm giving 5 stars to.
