- Overkill (acoustic version) -
-  by Men at Work/Colin Hay   -
-------------------------------
Tab-Version by: TKchaos



D              D/C#      
I can't get to sleep
C                 C/B     C C/B C/A C/G [indexfinger-movement* ]         
I think about the implications
D              D/C#
Of diving in too deep
C                C/B      C C/B C/A C/G
And possibly the complications
D              D/C#  
Especially at night
C            C/B   C C/B C/A C/G
I worry over situations
D              D/C# 
I know will be alright
C            C/B   
Perhaps it's just imagination


Bm                A     Asus4  A Asus2 A5*[hit only the 5th, 4th and 3rd string]
Day after day it reappears
Bm                                A        A7
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
F#sus4    F#             G      A    Asus4  A Asus2 A5
Ghosts appear and fade away 


D                 D/C#  
Alone between the sheets
C             C/B    C C/B C/A C/G        
Only brings exasperation
D                      D/C#        
It's time to walk the streets 
C           C/B
Smell the desperation
D                         D/C#  
At least there's pretty lights
C                         C/B   C C/B C/A C/G
And though there's little variation
D                 D/C#     
It nullifies the night
C             C/B    
From overkill



Bm                A     Asus4  A Asus2 A5*
Day after day it reappears
Bm                                A       A7
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
F#sus4    F#            G    G   A    Asus4  
Ghosts appear and fade away,       come back another day


(SOLO) [Verse + Chorus]



D              D/C#     
I can't get to sleep
C                 C/B      C C/B C/A C/G
I think about the implications
D                 D/C#   
Of diving in too deep
C                  C/B    C C/B C/A C/G   
And possibly the complications
D               D/C# 
Especially at night
C             D/B   C C/B C/A C/G
I worry over situations that
D             D/C#    
I know will be alright
C            C/B
It's just overkill

Bm                A     Asus4  A Asus2 A5*
Day after day it reappears
Bm                               A         A7
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
F#sus4   F#           G      A    Asus4  A 
Ghosts appear and fade away
F#sus4   F#           G      A    Asus4  A 
Ghosts appear and fade away
F#sus4   F#           G 
Ghosts appear and fade a-way
