About this tab version
Chords based on live version from Brunch Tunes (video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeQPfD92WjU). The studio version from the album Always Leaving is played one half tone lower. It's easiest to play with a capo on the first fret and transposing the chords down one whole note. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Walter Etc. - Boomer Etc.

[Verse 1]

E                       A
Boomer, look at me back living with my parents 
C#m                       B
making an appearance as a guest in my highschool bed 
E                         A
bored with myself and predictable depression 
    C#m
my same old chord progressions 
       B                       E
but my lyrics were better back then 

[Bridge]

   A
Oh well 
   C#m
my fault 
        B                    E
it will only get worse with age 
      A         C#m
But I will make art 
         B
until it kills me 

E

[Verse 2]

             E
Gotta sneak away for a smoke 
                  A
old friends seem formal, not stoked 
           C#m                              B
either you lost your sense of humor or they don’t get your jokes 
              E
they all quit smoking these days 
          A
in fact, you’re the last one 
          C#m                         B
chiefed a lonely little spliff on the front porch 

[Verse 3]

       E              A
It's a lousy mess of adulthood 
              C#m                    B
looking for a job on craigslist like I should 
            E               A
Got my resume just today as spruced up with lies 
              C#m                            B
cause I don’t want to work in retail for the rest of my life, no.... 

E

[Bridge]

   A
Oh well 
   C#m
my fault 
      B                E
I can always sell lemonade 
      A         C#m
but I will make art 
         B
until it kills me 

[Chorus]

A
Boomer you’re my last good friend 
         E               B
Your too soon old, too short on time 
A
Rest your achy bones in your bed 
   E                B
enjoy your final curtsy of life 
         C#m        A
Your death will be a real heartbreaker 
      E         B
I assume it’s only natural I guess 
A        B
No less a bummer 

[Verse 4]

E                            A
Keep in good health and keep up with your peers 
       C#m                        B
Gotta reinvent yourself, don't be the redundant adjective 
E                       A
Nobody cares about your travels 
             C#m                          B
So you sound like your bragging about the countries you've been in but 
E                      A
I can recall a day when you knew my middle name and 
C#m                       B
we mostly felt the same now 
                       E
that kind of magic can only exist in the 
A
mothballs of memory 
     C#m
and your eyes roll at me like 
    B
"go tell it to your family dog" 

[Chorus]

A
Cause Boomer you’re my last good friend 
       E                    B
I can tell you can tell I'm leaving again 
A
Just hang in there a few more months 
  E                  B
I swear I'll make it worth it for you 
C#m             A
A belly rub to end all the pain 
     E                   B
now close your eyes, if this is goodbye 
A           B
just know I love you.

E
