The Depression Suite
Artist: The Tragically Hip
Album: We Are the Same
Tabbed By: Joe Blixt
First off: Try different voicing’s for the chords and see what you like, I like
 using ----*-----| instead of an open D to get a
----7------------| more chunky sound without
----7------------| too much bass
----7------------|
----5------------|
-----------------|

Intro: A E D A

A E
Under the pillow
D A
I bury my head and try to shut Chicago out
A E
As it turns out there's a whole other world of sounds
D A
Of perfect fifths low skids and Arctic howls

A F#m
All saying are you going through something?
A F#m
Are you going through something?

A E
Under the pillow a little room to breathe
D A
the early morning light's a pale cranberry
A E
I hear the Aaa-aah-aah not now-wow-wow
D A
Of a siren faraway and closing steadily
A F#m
Saying are you going through something?
A F#m
Are you going through something?
E D A
Cuz I-I-I-I I am too

A E
Under the pillow
D A
I can hear you whisperin' are you going through something?
A F#m
Well honey are you going through something?
A F#m
Are you going through something?
E D A
Then I-I-I-I I am too
Then I-I-I-I I am too

And I’m thinking just in passing
What if this song does nothing?

E

E D
Go to be a man of the boom
E D
To Florida without the ocean
But
E A D
Don't you wanna see how it ends?
When the door is just starting to open?
When Athabasca depends?
Don't you wanna see how it ends

A Asus4 A
I can hear you
A Asus4 A
But I can't stay here
F#m
You left me lost in the barrens
E
You left me born on the stairs

A Asus4 A
It's minus 11
A Asus4 A
Inside my kettle
F#m
I didn't come to get lost in the barrens
E
I didn't come to settle

E D
To be a man on the moon
To get my little slice of heaven
Yeah

E A D
Don't you wanna see how it ends?
When the door is just starting to open?
And Athabasca depends
Doncha wanna see how it ends
Don't you wanna see how it ends?
The door is just starting to open.
Athabasca depends.
Don't you wanna see how it ends?
Yeah
Don't you wanna see how it ends?
I'm holding the door to the barrens
And Athabasca depends
Doncha wanna see how it ends?

The solo is on its way along with some other do-dads
