Artist: Tarkio
 Album: Omnibus
  Song: Caroline Avenue

Tabbed by: Mike K (mikekrieger@gmail.com) from http://www.decemberists.com/orate

This intro is hard to tab since it's so 'loose'. Basically, the single
notes below are ones you should emphasize between the strumming -
give it some practice and it will sound right.

e|--------------------------------|
B|-3-3-------3-------3----3-------|
G|-2-2-2-0---x-------0----0-------|
D|-0-0-----4-2-------0----0-------|
A|-0-0-------0-----0h2--0h2-------|
E|--------------------------------|

The D throughout can often be replaced by a Dsus2 (x00230) or just D without
a 3rd (x0023x), and the A can be played as the Asus4 above (x02230) or (x02x30)

Intro: D A


D               A               D
The things you said - were they true?
       Em      A     Bm
'Cos I haven't got a clue
              F#m                G
And wouldn't know, if they were not true

D          A          D
'Cos I am here paper doll
     Em       A       Bm
I am waiting for your call
            F#m        G
But I won't wait until tomorrow

Em           A
So hard to mention
          Bm      G
When you're in my [shoes]
        Em              A           Asus4 
But I'm tired of riding shotgun for you

      D            A 
As we light down Caroline Avenue
Bm          G
 Time will tell you that you're
Em                    A                  Bm
 Thinking that you're right when you are wrong
        G                  A
And I'm thinking that this evening won't last
Bm       G            D             A
Long, no no. 'Cos I'm getting pretty tired
       Bm          G
Of you waxing so inspired
           D          A             D
'Bout the lights down Caroline Avenue

Repeat Intro

Serves you right, to feel this way
Be so clinically deranged
But I won't stand for all your bullshit
So take your time, cos we've got time
Remember what is yours is mine
Don't let it slide by the way-side

Reeling from the tension
It's all ending here
And I'm chasing shots of whiskey with Everclear

Repeat Chorus

F#         G            D  Dsus4 D
And you're trying so hard
F#            G
But it takes more than just
A        A/G   F#m     Em      D
Flipping off traffic cops to impress me
Repeat Intro
(You underestimate me)


Emptied out, fallen free
It will catch up with me
And I'm [?] impatient
But I will wait, if you decide
It's all over bar the tide
And I will stay behind 'till you decide

Carry me till daylight
With your wisdom [fair?]
Till tomorrow finds me shoeless in jail

Repeat Chorus
