Song: Lame
Album: American Standard
Tuning: Normal - No Capo

Transcribed by Don Kurelich

This song has a pretty basic strum pattern, in the intro and verses
it's essentialy 4 downstrokes on the lower strings with a quick upstroke
at the end of each measure.  All the other parts have full strums with
some neat rhythm (a little hammer-on the C sometimes).  Listen to it,
you'll know what I mean.

Intro:  G  B*  A* (play 2 times)

           G        B*         A*
There's a tall, mulatto, boy I know
        G              B*         A*
And he comes to every party - he stands alone.
    G                           B*                  A*
In viewing them the rest, the 'corner of his glance, it gets so clear
     G         B*      A*  C*  C*
He's not, judging anyone.

G                B*                A*
The way his arms float around his cage, he's caged
        G                     B*    A*
Canary sings, silently brings, his voice to rage.
    G                            B*
The way they stop and stare, the way they turn their
    heads, it's enough to make him want to run away,

       G          B*        A*       C*  C*
But he stays, he stands his ground.

G            D        C*
And I'm, I'm so damn lame.
    G                     Em*      C*
The way I condescend without ever knowing his name.
    G                 D
He keeps it in a box, hangs it from his ear
    Looks at everyone without the slightest fear.
G             Em*      C*
It's makin' me    so ashamed.

G  B*  A* (play 2 times)

        G             B*         A*
Slender body, slip through his glance.
     G        B*            A*
I don't give it a single chance.
The way he's rocking back and forth,
makes a buzzin' in my ear,
Constantly reminding me that I never stop to hear
G         B*      A*  C*  C*
him say hello, hello.

(Chorus 2)
    G         D       C*
And I'm, I'm so damn lame.
        G              Em*           C*
Like a moth bumpin' off his godless flame.
   G                    D               C*
I cannot condescend or even apprehend, what comes over me

      G         Em*       C*
When I see his shameless face.
    Em*         DaddB    A*       C*
So rage, please rage, against me
         Em*          DaddB  A*         C*
Beat me down, beat me down,  forgive me,
               Em*         DaddB         A*           C*
For what I've done, I'm so lame, I'm so lame, I'm so lame
  Em*     DaddB     A*  C*  Em*
So lame, so  lame, so       lame.
