Longtime Sunshine
Rivers Cuomo
From the album Alone:  The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo

[Verse 1]

D                 G
Sometimes I wanna pack it all up
A                D
Get on a bus and move to Vermont
Or Maine, or any of those states back East
That I remember

(same chords progression)

Sometimes I wanna go back to school
An East Coast college with some history
I’d be satisfied I know
In the simple things.


Bm   G     A    D
Longtime sunshine
Bm   G     A    D
Longtime sunshine upon me

[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Sometimes I wanna build a house
With a wood stove or a fireplace
In the middle of the living
An old piano

Sometimes it don’t seem so bad
Settle down with a good woman
Leave this lonely life behind
For ever and ever


Bm   G     A    D
Longtime sunshine
Bm   G     A    D

Bm   G     A    D
Longtime sunshine
Bm   G     A    D

[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)

Longtime sunshine upon me
Longtime sunshine upon me
Sometimes I wanna get in a car
Close my eyes and drive real fast
Keep on going till I get some place
Where I can truly rest

[Chorus] (x2) 
(sing octave higher)

-no real tricks here.  sounds nice with a capo farther up the neck wherever it's easiest 
you to sing along.
-the flute part (i think that's a chinese di zi...go rivers!) can be easily faked with a 
harmonica too, just stay in your pentatonic and draw and blow to your heart's content.
-i can't make the stupid formatting work on this tab so just listen to the song to see 
to change chords.

sorry folks, i hate UG's formatting system. second note should be "...can be easily faked with a D harmonica too..." so grab your D harp and toot away.

good job on the tab, correct chords and everything. but the "flute part" is played on clarinet, as rivers can play the clarinet very well.

You may want to rate the tab now too:
