Weezer: Surf Wax America
by Rivers Cuomo

Here's Surf Wax America. For all those who don't have the Weezer
album, I highly recommend it, especially if you like Nirvana.

Tune down 1/2 step  NOTE: chords are NOT in actual pitch
Intro/Lead verses

   Dadd4      C          Em7     G

{With intro}

The sea is foamin' like a bottle of beer
The wave is comin' but I ain't got no fear
I'm waxing down so that I'll go real fast
I'm waxing down because it's really a blast

{Without intro/With Distortion}
D/A       C/G            G
I'm going surfing 'cuz I don't like your face
D/A         C/G           G
I'm bailing out because I hate the race
D/A          C/G           G
of rats that run round and round in the maze
D/A       C/G       G
I'm going surfin',  I'm going surfin'

C/G           D/A
You take your car to work               Note: the C/E sounds good when
C/E          G                                you play with the album.
I'll take my board                            If you play alone, an E/B
C/G             D/A                           sounds better
And when you're out of fuel
C/E       G
I'm still afloat

D/A         C/G              G
My buddies and their homies all come along
D/A         C/G         G
They seem invincible as they surf along
D/A        C/G            G
The sea is rollin' like a thousand pound keg
D/A         C/G      G
We're goin' surfin', we're goin' surfin'

C/G           D/A
You take your car to work
C/E          G
I'll take my board
C/G             D/A
And when you're out of fuel
C/E       G
I'm still afloat

A/E   C/G     G
All along the undertow
   A/E       C/G     G
is strengthening its hold
A/E     C/G          G
I never thought it'd come to this
A/E       C/G      G
Now I can never go home


D/A  55777x
C/G  33555x
G    3555xx
C/E  03555x
A/E  00222x

"Maybe it's just a coincidence
 or maybe she doesn't know what to get;
 But why does it seem like every year's
 a toolbox Christmas?"
                  -Jehovah's Toolshed
