Ruin It - Alkaline Trio
Transcribed by Ginge

3rd Fret Capo !!!

I think that this song is mostly correct. I seem to have been the only person who 
has attempted to transcribe it yet. There are a few bass line fills that are based 
around the root chord that can be played with a bit of practise. Listen to the 
track to pick them up. 

Please comment if you find any corrections.

Verse

     Am                          Dm
I've waited a long time for this life
        Am                       Em  
Just to ruin it, so please don't ruin this for me
       Am
Yes to understand this lie
       Dm
Hell I crossed those t's
                          Em                Dm 
I scratched out all these eyes, myself last night
       Em             Am (intro riff x2)
What I promise not to find

   Am                                  Dm
So this is what I'm looking like these days
             Am              Em
I'm all grown up, so full of hate
    Am                         Dm
But I don't wanna let go of my rage
              Am                     Em
Cause it's the salt, that brings the taste


Chorus
   F                                 G
So where am I to decide that I'm not right?
              Am        Em     G
Cause I might break and I might bend
                   Am     Em     G
Your heart strings out of tune again
            Am     Em     G
And I might try to apologize
          Dm
On a good day
       G 
On my best day
   Em        Am         
If you stick around

Verse

      Am                            Dm
Did I stay inside to sterilize this knife?
              Am                 Em
Am I being to careful? Does this seem right?
      Am                   Dm
Did I open up the shades to expose the sunny rays?
   Am                     Em
To show what burned there inside


Chorus

F                                             G
Take a close look, Hold me right up in to the light
              Am        Em     G
Cause I might break and I might bend
                   Am     Em     G
Your heart strings out of tune again
            Am     Em     G
And I might try to apologize
          Dm
On a good day
       G 
On my best day
   Em        F         
If you stick around


Middle 8

F                Am
I've waited for so long
F                Dm
I've waited for so long
          F 
Spread me out, rake me in
     Am
This scorched and rocky field
     G
Will camouflage my skin

Chorus
            Am        Em     G
And I might break and I might bend
                   Am     Em     G
Your heart strings out of tune again
            Am     Em     G
And I might try to apologize
          Dm
On a good day
       G 
On my best day
   Em        Am         
If you stick around
      G
On my best day
   Em        Am      
If you stick around
