Please Don?t Ask Me To Smile - You Am I (Rogers/You am I)

Tabbed by Oliver Watkins (ofwat1@student.monash.edu.au)

The way I played this is with the guitar tuned down one whole semi-tone,
so that the normal open G becomes an open F#.

Intro:
G Gsus4 G


G             Gsus4 G             Gsus4
When I was in grade six I used to open the door for a girl
        G                            Gsus4      G/B     A*               G
and she called me a wimp. Said there just is no need to be so fucking polite
           Gsus4       G/B    A*            G
I politely agreed with her, I think she was right
  Am7                  G            Am7                               G
 just never entered my mind, That a 12 year old came down to choosing sides


G                  Gsus4                   G         Gsus4
You said, That I'd die if I had nothing to do, put a drink in my hand and I'll
G
talk to anything that moves
       Gsus4     G/B      A*                              G
I just refuse to give you what you think will make things right
        Gsus4     G/B         A*               G
Just to find hate when you've lost the will to fight
    Am7                                  G
and would it really be in touch with the times
   Am7                            G
to put somebody down for choosing sides

             Csus2               Dsus2
And you said show us them teeth, give us them  braces
Csus2                              Dsus2                        D/C# D/C
Show me that dental work that puts fear in twelve year old faces


G              A*         G/B       Gsus4       Gsus4  G/B   A*        G
I can make you feel, only half worthwhile, just please don't ask me to smile
G                      Gsus4 G      Gsus4
And times when it just feels right, hold open the door for a girl
        G                          Gsus4 G/B A*                    G
or back down from a fight, there's just  no  need to be so fucking polite
   Gsus4    G/B      A*              G
at least it helps us sleep easier at night
Am7                     G        Am7                               G
It just never enters my mind, it ever should come down to choosing sides

             Csus2               Dsus2
And you said show us them teeth, give us them  braces
Csus2                              Dsus2                        D/C# D/C
Show me that dental work that puts fear in twelve year old faces

      G        A*    G/B             Gsus4
I can prove to you I do or don't get high..........


     Gsus4  G/B   A*        G
Just please don't ask me to smile  :)

Is this only one semi-tone down, not two?

Thanks for tab though - great song and tab.
