Not my tab just noticed the other one was wrong, and this one's pretty damn good.

::::::::::::::
I Must Be High
::::::::::::::

by J. Tweedy
As played by Wilco from the album "A.M." (1995)

Transcribed by Dave Shapiro (dshapir@argo.ecte.uswc.uswest.com)


There are five chords used in this tune. They're pretty standard:

---0---------0-------2-------0-----2---|
---2---------2-------3-------0-----3---|
---2---------1-------2-------1-----4---|
---2---------2-------0-------2-----4---|
---0---------0------(0)------2-----2---|
-----------------------------0---------|

   A       Amaj7     D       E     Bm

The acoustic plays those chords. The electric gets the lead stuff. So
here's how it goes:


Intro
 A           Amaj7   D                 E                    A

---------------------------------------------------2b3b2--0-|
------------------------------------------------------------|

A   Amaj7                    D      E
You       always wanted more time

           A   Amaj7               D       E
To do what you       always wanted to do

                     A  Amaj7
Now you got it, and I


              D  Bm
I must be high

              A  Amaj7
To say goodbye

           D
Bye bye bye

A   Amaj7                       D     E
You       never said you needed this

                           A      Amaj7              D       E
And you're pissed that you missed       the very last kiss

                   A  Amaj7
>From my lips, and I


              D  Bm
I must be high

              A  Amaj7
To say goodbye

           D
Bye bye bye
