HEY JEALOUSY by Gin Blossoms


]]] means continue picking the note with the beat
... means hold the note

Two guitars in this one besides the bass: 1 is not distorted but uses some
effect to get a sharp/crispish sound; 2 is just distorted. This tab is my
best guess at the song from repeated listens... of course, listening to
the song will help smooth it out and make sense of everything.

GUITAR 1
Arpeggiate each chord something like this:
E(vii)
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|------9-----9----|
D|--------9--------|
A|-7--7-----7------|
E|-----------------|

GUITAR 2
The part marked with a single asterisk (*) is played this way:
Play the first chord, then hold it.
When the next chord comes, pick the last chord then slide to the
new one. Strum and hold until the next change.
The part marked with the double asterisk (**) is played with constant
strumming (16th notes).

Again, listening to the song will clear everything up.

[VERSE 1]

D(v) E(vii)
Tell me do you think it'd be alright *
F#m(ix) E(vii)
If I could just crash here tonight
D(v) E(vii)
You can see I'm in no shape for drivin'
F#m(ix)
And anyway I've got no place to go
D(v) E(vii) **
And you know it might not be that bad
F#m(ix) E(vii)
You were the best I ever had
D(v) E(vii)
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
F#m(ix) E(vii)
I might not be alone

[VERSE 2] -- repeat first guitar parts

You can trust me not to think and not to sleep around
And if you don't expect too much from me, you might not be let down
Cause all I really want's to be with you, to feel like I matter too
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago, I might be here with you

Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found to take its place
hey jealousy
