                        Holiday Acoustic - The Get Up Kids
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Sean Hummer
Email: allstar21369@hotmail.com

Someone requested that I tab this song into an acoustic version so I gave it a
shot. I don't know that The Get Up Kids have ever actually played this song
acoustically but these chords can also be used for the rhythm to the electric
version.

Beneath the chords I included a tab of how to play this acoustically with my
version of the lead/melody included in the rhythm chords.

Tuning: Standard

Chords used:
E -   022100
C#m - x46654
G#m - 466444
A -   x02220
F#m - 244222
B -   x24442


E                          C#m
What became of everyone I used to know?
G#m                          A
Where did our respectable convictions go?
E                                          C#m
Your words don’t match the story that your actions show
G#m                A
  But what do I know?

F#m                       G#m     A
  I’m sure you can’t help but remembering
C#m                     B             A
I thought that you’d be one not to forget
C#m               B           A  
Remembering’s not helping you yet

    E
Say goodnight
     C#m
Mean goodbye
           A                   B                C#m      E
I know you think my life will stop when you’re away
A           B
Maybe I can see you on
E         C#m
Holidays, worlds away
A              B             C#m        E
I’ve never forgotten all our yesterdays
    A              B
I’m lucky if we’re speaking on the
E
Holidays

C#m    G#m     A


E                              C#m
The evidence presents itself accusingly
     G#m                             A
Your absence speaking everything you think of me
E                             C#m
Now that I am faced with opportunity
G#m                  A
  You’re not remembering

F#m              G#m A
  I’m not asking you anyway
C#m             B               A
And even if you ever could cave in
  C#m           B          A
I wouldn’t know where to begin

    E
Say goodnight
     C#m
Mean goodbye
           A                   B                C#m     E
I know you think my life will stop when you’re away
A           B
Maybe I can see you on
E         C#m
Holidays, worlds away
A             B              C#m        E
I’ve never forgotten all our yesterdays
    A              B
I'm lucky if we’re speaking on
C#m   G#m
Holidays
A    B
Holidays

F#m    G#m      A
F#m    G#m      A
F#m    G#m      A

    E

     C#m
Mean goodbye
           A                   B                C#m     E
I know you think my life will stop when you’re away
    A              B
I'm lucky if we’re speaking on
C#m   G#m

This is another version I created on acoustic that is very similar to the one
above except it includes some lead/melody for those wishing for an acoustic
version that sounds more like the album.

Intro/Verse-
e|0------0------0------0-----------4--------4-4------------------------------|
B|0------0------0------0-----------5--------5-5------------------------------|
G|1------1------1------1-----------6--------6-6--6-6-------------------------|
D|2-x4---4-x4---2-x4---4-x4--------6--x12---4-4--2-2-------------------------|
A|2------2------2------2-----------4--------4-4--4-4-------------------------|
E|0------0------0------0-----------------------------------------------------|

e|0------0------0------0-----------------------------------------------------|
B|0------0------0------0-----------0--------0--0--0--------------------------|
G|x------x------x------1-----------x--------x--x--x--------------------------|
D|1-x4---2-x4---4-x4---2-x4--------4-x4-----6--4--2--------------------------|
A|2------2------2------2-----------0--------0--0--0--------------------------|
E|0------0------0------0-----------------------------------------------------|


Prechorus-
e|2~---4x---0~------4-4--4-4--0----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2----0-0-0--0-0-0--0--------|
B|2~---4x---2~------5-5--4-4--0----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4----2-2-2--2-2-2--2--------|
G|2~---4x---2~------6-6--6-6--6----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4----2-2-2--2-2-2--2--------|
D|4~---6x---2~------6-6--6-6--6----4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4----2-2-2--1-1-1--2-x8-----|
A|4~---6x---0~------4-4--4-4--4----2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2----0-0-0--0-0-0--0--------|
E|2~---4x--------------------------------------------------------------------|

(I'll update the chorus/etc. when I'm finished with this rhythm/lead hybrid)


| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
