He hits 3 on the b string a lot.. The chords are (x3243x) and (x3223x). The riff
is not exact but live, he plays it differently everytime.

(1)

I am driving up 85 in the
Kind of morning that lasts all afternoon (2)
just stuck inside the gloom (1)
4 more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive (2)
And leave it all behind (1)

(3) Cause I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

(4) Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why?

(1)

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
Wood in places to make it feel like home (2)
But all I feel's alone (1)
It might be a quarter life crisis (2)
Or just the stirring in my soul (1)

(3) Either way I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

(4) Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why? (5)

(5) So what, so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down (1)

Everybody is just a stranger but
That's the danger in going my own way (2)
I guess it's the price I have to pay (1)

(3b) Still "everything happens for a reason"
Is no reason not to ask myself

(4) If I am living it right
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why? (1)

(Here he does this funky little thing where he just hammers his finger on to the 3rd fret on the
a-string without plucking it whitch makes this riff sound nasty sometimes i like to slap the

(John basically does the same intro riff but strums them more like chords when you see
x's all across the strings, just slam your palm down over all of them
makind a slapping sound and muting all the strings temporarily. i think this
really helps to create the feel for this song. This is basically the equivalent
of the opening riff except it sounds more like chords you'll notice that you
can almst use the exact same fingring for the opening riff and this one.)

Song: Why Georgia
Tabbed by: Josiah Krol


Hey guys, this is my first tab, but I think most of it is right. I decided to write this
under the impression that you want to play the song with only one guitar instead of the
four that the others were suggesting you should play it with. I never had four people
who played guitar and four guitars in the same place when I was learning to play so I
figured you wouldn't either. This is the "acoustic" version I suppose you could call it.
Anyway, these are my tweaks.

*Note* If you are thinking of performing this I suggest putting a capo on the
second fret because it is MUCH easier to sing.

I am driving up 85 in the kind of morning

That lasts all afternoon, I'm just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to my apartment

But I am tempted to keep the car in drive and leave it all behind

(1)
'Cause I wonder sometimes about the outcome of a still verdict less life

Am I living it right, am I living it right?

Am I living it right

(2)
Why, why Georgia, why?

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with wood in places

(3) (4)
To make it feel like home but all I feel's alone

(5) (6)
It might be a quarter life crisis, just a stirrin' in my soul

(7)
Either way I wonder sometimes about the outcome of a still verdict less life

Am I living it right, am I living it right?

Am I living it right?

Why, why Georgia, why?

So what, so I've got a smile on

But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head

Don't believe me, don't believe me when I say I've got it down

(8)
Everybody's just a stranger but that's the danger in going my own way

(9)
I guess it's a price I have to pay, still everything happens for a reason

Is no reason not to ask myself if I'm living it right

Am I living it right, am I living it right?

Why tell me, why

Why, why Georgia, why?
