Pour some tea for two

And speak my point of view

book to stay awake

  except for G which is six eighth note strums with eighth
  rests before the first and fourth strum**

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
You don't like my point of view you think that I'm insane
It's not sane       It's not sane

(As the old saying goes....Everybody together!!!)

Second verse same as the first!!  (I couldn't resist)

D                 E
I'll have it made (I'll have it made)
I'll have it made (I'll have it made)
I'll have it made (I'll have it made)
No no no
You know I'm really gonna really gonna 
have it made (I'll have it made)
(I'll have it made) (I'll have it made)

End with Figure one fading.

Thanks for listening....I'm outta here

Subject: "no rain" by blind melon

Hi, I was just screwing around with my guitar and I came up with an 
alternate intro to blind melon's "no rain" that's not in the archive.  
This one's a little more full and folky, if you like that sort of thing.  
Also, this is the first time I've tried to write in rhythm.  bear with 
me here.  The measures are kind of accurate; the spacing of the notes 
isn't.)

kapo the scond fret. Notation is relative to the kapo (a 3 is really a 5 
and such...)
                                                      Dmaj
|--------3--3-/5-|--------3--3-/5-|--------3--3-/5-|---------3---2--|
|----------------|-3_____---------|-3_____---------|--3----3--------|
|----------------|----------------|----------------|-----2----------|
|----------------|----------------|----------------|--0------2-2----|
|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

        Cmaj        Dmaj                  Cmaj    
|-0--------------|---------3---2--|-0--------------| repeat one more
|---3---1----3-1-|--3----3--------|---3---1----3-1-| time (the rhythm
|-----2----------|-----2----------|-----2----------| is practically
|-0--------2-----|--0------2-2----|-0--------2-----| immortal) & then 
|-------3------3-|----------------|-------3------3-| your guess is as 
|----------------|----------------|----------------| good as mine. Try
                                                     something based 
                                                     on the other tabs
                                                     posted  here!

The the verses and solo are pretty easy.  Just play what the others have 
modified for a kapo (instead of E major play D major and such...)
