Here is my transcription for Rumor Mill - great song by an amazing band. I worked it out 
by ear, so it may not be 100% perfect, but I think it sounds good. 
Questions/comments/suggestions/corrections are encouraged and welcomed! Enjoy!

Note: In the instrumental break right after the second chorus, they quicky switch 
between two notes two times. I wrote it in as D (lift off middle finger) in two spots. Its not 
the proper chord name but if you play it, it will fit well.



D  A  B  G
D  A  G

Verse 1:

Here we go again,

                 A                              B
It's like you're calling all the shots before I shoot them

and I hate that.

Every time I turn my back I wonder what you'll

A                                 B
say to make me sound like someone different

It's not worth it anymore


           B                     G                    A
We've been picking up the pieces Leaving all the dust behind.

B                         G                   A
Sick of all the pressure, you're just wasting time


G                      D
And I don't ever wanna know what it feels like

A              B
to be a shadow of myself

    G                  D                        A
and I don't ever wanna come back down from this feeling

G              D              A           B
What makes you think that you know what's better for me

    G                       D                A
And I don't think you wanna see what's underneath

your made up version of me.

Intro repeat

Verse 2: (slightly different than V1)

D                            B
There you go again believing that the truth is what you're reading

G                              D
Talk some shit I haven't heard before.

D                          D
If you've got something to say (Don't wanna talk about it)

B                        B
If you need someone to blame (Don't wanna cry about it)

G                                   D
I measure life in minutes but these critics think they've got me figured out

Break repeat
Chorus repeat

Short Instrumental:

D - D (lift off middle finger) - D - D (lift off middle finger)


B                              G
I lost the strength to keep my grip on the reality that

everything from day to day is

Fading from my memory

    B                   F#m
But I'll never let this grow

out of my control and watch your steps so

          A                              D
you don't fall into this hole you've dug alone

D - D (lift off middle finger) - Dsus4 (add pinky on high E string)

this hole you've dug alone

Chorus repeat
Intro repeat. On the last G chord, hit it 3 times and sustain it
