The Offspring - Dirty Magic

Tabbed by egidio, February 2010

Tuning : Standard

I really like this song and i allways wanted to play and sing it. 
But playing the song on one single guitar is very difficult. So i made
this easy chord version for acoustic guitar, 
which is more of a cover of the song, but i think it captures the mood
of the song quite good and i really enjoy playing and singing it. 
I mostly use the common (D DU UDU)-strumming pattern.
Try using a capo to play it in the tune that fits your voice best.

I hope you enjoy it.

Bm     x24432
G      320001


Em          Aadd9      C            Bm
  In my own simple way, I think she wants me only
Em              Aadd9      G     G  
  She said come over right away
Em             Aadd9          C           Bm
  But she's just not that way, her little soul is stolen
Em            Aadd9            G      G  
  See her put on her brand new face

Em              Aadd9            C             G
  (Come on and) Pull the shades, razor blades, you're so tragic
Em  Aadd9            C                  G
  I hate you so, but love you more, I'm so elastic
Em    Aadd9           C               G
  The things you say, games you play, dirty magic
Em   Aadd9   G   G

Em              Aadd9       C             Bm
  I should know better than, to think I'd reach inside her
Em           Add9           G      G  
  It's all a cloudy kind of daze
Em             Aadd9       C              Bm
  She's not so sweet today, she mocks me, I'm no fighter
Em            Aadd9             G      G  
  It all just seems like such a waste


( mostly i stop here and don't play the rest, because i don't think
 it fits this acoustic version that good, but you can play : )

Em         Aadd9 G    G 
  It's oversimplified
