                             "Mistake" - Nickelback
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ryan Tessmer
Email: t_diddy29@hotmail.com

Tuning:standard

This is my first song ever tabbed, but it's nearly 100% correct. I tabbed this from the
live acoustic version of the song from the "Nickelback Live At Home" DVD. Both Chad and
Ryan are playing guitar and thus this is a two guitar song. But I've made it one guitar
version. I also added pieces of the lyrics so it would be easier to follow along with.
The full lyrics are at the bottom. 

Enjoy! And please email me with any comments or questions, they are greatly
appreciated.

LYRICS
Verse 1:
As I sift and drift through bullshit,
That plagues from day to day,
Would you ever really notice I've gone away?

Chorus:
I'm over the wall,
Over the hill,
Over at your place,
I'm over the safetys,
Over the phone calls,
Over the rage,
What a mistake.

Verse 2:
When you've lost the stones to throw,
The ones I found to make a fire,
When all the lonely souls that say so get fired.

Chorus

Interlude:
What a mistake,
What a mistake,
What a mistake,
What a mistake,

Verse 3:
I've never been lost,
I've never been found,
And it makes no difference, if I'm around,
There's never been words, that never made actions,
I've never made promises that I've never kept.

Chorus/Interlude:
(By both Chad and Ryan)
I'm over the wall,
Over the hill,
Over at your place,
I just can't seem to get out of this,
Pulling on the threads,
I'm always pulling on the threads,
I'm always pulling on the threads,
I'm always,
What a mistake, mistake.

Outro:
So as I sift and drift through bullshit,
That plagues from day to day,
Would you ever really notice I've gone away?

U could also use this tuning: C A D G B E.

Extend some of the voicings down to that low c string, sounds cool.
