"Pretty Good Year" tab by Tori Amos

Ok. Let's get a few things straight. First of all, you need to strum this,
not pick it. You need to tune down a half-step, but I'm just going to call
them by what they would normally be. Here are the chords needed to play
this song. Some of the timing is kinda weird, but that is a given in most
Tori Amos songs. You can listen to the song to get all the timing and
also to get the exact structure.

G            Dsus        Em7    Cadd9                  G    Dsus  Em7  Cadd9 
Tears on the sleeve of a man,         don't wanna be a boy today

G         Dsus        Em7   Cadd9                 G        Dsus  Em7  Cadd9
Heard the eternal footman          bought himself a bike to race

Cadd9                              Dsus
And Greg he writes letters and burns his CDs

Cadd9                                     Dsus
They say you were something in those formative years

Cadd9                 Dsus      
Hold onto nothing as fast as you can      well still                 

G    Dsus    Em7    Cadd9           G    Dsus    Em7    Cadd9
                        Pretty good year

G      Dsus          Em7    Cadd9                      G    Dsus   Em7  Cadd9
Maybe a bright sandy beach       is going to bring you back, back, back

G           Dsus          Em7    Cadd9                    G   Dsus   
Maybe not so now you're off,          you're gonna see america

Cadd9                                   Cadd9        Em (little breakdown)
Well let me tell you something about america

G    Dsus    Em7    Cadd9           G     Dsus    Em7   Cadd9
                        Pretty good year

G           Cadd9     Em7     Cadd9
Some things are        melting now

G           Cadd9     Em7     Cadd9
Some things are        melting now

      Em   G  Dsus                    Em          G         Dsus
Well hey             What's it gonna take til my baby's alright

                   Em          G         Cadd9
What's it gonna take til my baby's alright


G   Dsus   Em7   Cadd9    

Cadd9                              Dsus
And Greg he writes letters with his birthday pen

Cadd9                                  Dsus
Sometimes he's aware that they're drawing him in

Cadd9                  Dsus
Lucy was pretty, your best friend agreed      still

G   Dsus   Em7   Cadd9               G    Dsus   Em7   Cadd9
                           Pretty good year



Ok. That's it. If you're tuned a half-step down, then I guarantee you that
this is the closest you can come to having a perfect guitar tab for this
song. Unlike some of these morons I see everywhere, I don't submit a tab
unless I know it's right.
