If you haven't guessed The Used is my favorite band and I have dedicated myself
to learn their music 100% correctly!  So here is my second favorite to "On My
Own" their beautiful and easy to play "Poetic Tragedy"!

Standard Tuning (optional D)E-A-D-G-B-E  (drop D if you like...it sounds the same)


The cup is not half empty as pessimists say.....



A singer, a writer, he's not dreaming now of going nowhere.......

(you can play this many ways depending on what sounds best to you)
    [D  or  D5 or drop D]    THEN   [Em   or  Em  or  Drop D]2X THEN G or G5 or

  Drop D (G)


He feels alone...His heart in his hand....He's alone

    [A  or  A2  or  A5  or  Drop D (A)] THEN [Em  or  Em  or Drop D (Em)]

here's a tip. just make the tab in one tuning. most people are smart enough to figure it out if they want to play it in drop D. it's not hard at all to do. it just makes the tab harder to read.
