                             SONG NAME - Band Name
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: andrea

Tuning: Standard

Okay so this is a little bit harder than intermediate, especially if you want to play 
the little solo thing in the middle, but I'm sure you can soldier 
through if you have enough of a handle on bar chords a know 
a little fingerpicking. Have fun and good luck!

(Continue that rhythm, but you can leave the bass line simple - just hit the base note of the chord)

            Bbm                 F7                    Bbm
Well, I can tell by the way you take your infusion

                            Ebm                   Bbm
You've spent some time in a mental institution

Bbm            Ebm
What a dream

Ebm               Bbm
Life would seem

Bbm      F7                                Bbm         Db7  C7
If only...   They let you keep your etch-a-sketch


        Bbm
Oh, you laugh like a banshee

     F7  
Gesticulate your delerium

     Bbm
They treat you like a corpse

         Ebm                     Bbm
Keep you full of candy lithium

Bbm                     Ebm                    F7                                   Bbm      Db7  C7
What a dream life would seem if only you could see the world from inside and etch-a-sketch


      Bbm                 F7                        Bbm
I can tell by the way you reach your conclusions

Bbm                      Ebm                  Bbm
You're the director of a mental institution

Bbm            Ebm
What a dream 

Ebm               Bbm
Life would seem 

Bbm       F7
If only...

                       Bbm6   F7    Bbm6    Ebm    Bbm    F#7  F7
It hadn't been for Dr. B

(now play the first bar of that, while singing the next bit, yeah it's a little difficult...)

Animate yourself

An alternate reality

Consummate a self-pleasing artificiality


F7
You can have yourself a tea

(now strum the chords)

            Bbm                 F7                  Bbm
I... can... tell by the way you take your infusion

You've spent some time in a mental institution

Bbm                     Ebm
What a dream life would seem

          Bbm      
If only...   

                  F7                           Bbm6
You could see the world from inside an etch-a-sketch
