Subject: TAB: 'So Long Bernie' By 'The Lowest of The Low'

Song: So Long Bernie
Group: Lowest of the Low
Album: Shakespeare my Butt
Transcribed By DGenge@Trentu.ca

(This is for all those Low fans who can never find tab anywhere. If
there are any questions email me. But this is how I play the song)

Capo 2nd
Am			F							C				G
It's like watching murder through your fingers at the theatre
		Am			F							C		G
It's like finding out Klaus Barbie was your neighbor, only weirder
Am		F		   C  		G Am			F		  C
And when I saw you on the tube with a six foot cop on either side of you
That's when I knew

(Just keep following that chord pattern for the rest of the song. Speed
up when you get to the Bridge but other than that it is the same basic
That's when I knew
That's when I knew
All that pain, that was shacked up inside of you
Well so long Bernie you're the friend I never knew
And never will. I never will.

She didn't even know your name
But, you put a six inch blade inside her all the same
She couldn't possibly know why
And when you became Dr. Jekyll you knew you had to hide
Yeah when you became Dr. Jekyll you knew you had to hide

Well, now I know
Yeah, now I know
All the pain that was in your mind is still inside your soul
Well so long Bernie you're the friend I'll never know, I'll never know
I'll never know

You're the beast inside us all
The straw that breaks
The wire that snaps
You're all the pressure built up in this pitiful machine


Well now your mind is full of blood
A simple scream in place of every single thing you've done
They found her in a field
And when they found you swinging
Yeah no one shed a tear
When they found you dangling
Well no one shed a tear
And When they found you hanging
Why would they shed a tear Why shed one tear

Well now I know Yeah now I know
I look at strangers different that I did a year ago
But, you know Bernie it's my closest friends I'd better get to know
Yeah, I'd better get to know
Well, I better get to know
I better get to know I better get to know
Yeah, I better get to know
No no, No no, No no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
