Artist: Yo La Tengo
Album: Electr-O-Pura (release date: May 2, 1995)
Song: Paul Is Dead

Nice little song off of Electr-O-Pura, fairly easy to play.

Tuning: Standard

Intro: (the riff that is played throughout Verses 1 and 2)

|D---0-0-0-1-1-1-1---------------|  x4
|A-----------------1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|E-------------------------------|

Verse 1:

|e---------------------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------------------------------|
|G---------------------------------------------------------|
|D---0-0-0-1-1-1-1-------------0-0-0-1-1-1-1---------------|
|A-----------------1-1-1-1-1-1---------------1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|E---------------------------------------------------------|

     Walking on 10th Street, the guy in front of me, Walkman headphones on,

|e---------------------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------------------------------|
|G---------------------------------------------------------|
|D---------------------------0-0-0-1-1-1-1-----------------|
|A-----------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|E---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-------------------------------|

                   Stones cranked

|e---------------------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------------------------------|
|G---------------------------------------------------------|
|D---0-0-0-1-1-1-1-------------0-0-0-1-1-1-1---------------|
|A-----------------1-1-1-1-1-1---------------1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|E---------------------------------------------------------|

     Thing that caught my ear, singing loud and clear

|e---------------------------------------------------------|
|B---------------------------------------------------------|
|G---------------------------------------------------------|
|D---------------------------0-0-0-1-1-1-1-----------------|
|A-----------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|E---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-------------------------------|

       Every couple of steps I heard, "Ba-ba"

Chorus 1:

|e-----------------------------|
|B-----------------------------|
|G-----------------------------|
|D---1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|A-----------------------------|
|E-----------------------------|

     And he said it so un-self-consciously that
     Never would it occur to me that
     He'd reveal himself and I'd offer a blue

|e-----------------------------------------------------|
|B-----------------------------------------------------|
|G-----------------------------------------------------|
|D-----------------------------------------------------|  x2
|A---1-1-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-4-4-3-3-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1-1-1---|
|E-----------------------------------------------------|

From here, the exact same melody is played: Verse 2 is played exactly like Verse 1, and 
the Chorus 2 is played exactly like Chorus 1. Here are the lyrics for reference:

(Verse 2)
I was drunk on the night we met, I might try to forget, except I know
So were you
And I don't really care, 'cause we went on from there
And I tried not to hide what's true

(Chorus 2)
The other night, I had this dream
You told me what you want from me
I'll give it to you instantly
And I woke up without a clue

Finish on:

|A-----------------1---|

Sorry, guys, I think that during the "Stones cranked" and "Every couple of steps" parts, the third, not the fourth, fret on the E String is played.
