...and that's it.
sorry I don't have a song structure for you, but i don't feel like doing it right
now...it's easy enough to figure out. to get the best sound, use a single-coil in the
middle position


I do, however, have the lyrics

dead leaves and the dirty ground
when i know you're not around
shiny tops and soda pops
when i hear your lips make a sound

thirty notes in the mailbox
will tell you that i'm coming home
and i think i'm gonna stick around
for a while so you're not alone

if you can hear a piano fall
you can hear me coming down the hall
if i could just her your pretty voice
i don't think i need to see at all

soft hair and a velvet tongue
i want to give you what you give to me
and every breath that is in your lungs
is a tiny little gift to me

i didn't feel so bad till the sun went down
then i come home
no one to wrap my arms around

well any man with a microphone
can tell you what he loves the most
and you know why you love at all
if your thinking of the holy ghost

PROBLEMS
Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
This is a pretty hard song to tab out, due to
the riffs before the verse. You don't have to
play them exactly, just add bits or take them
away according to your taste. Parts of this tab
are based on Jack playing live.

play that clean stuff until he starts singing then do something like this
(based off these chords A G C D A A G C D A F G A- the guitar behind
