			     Rags To Rags - Eels
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: acoustic-fish
Tuning: EADGBe (standard)

there are already a few tabs for this song... but i find it easier to play it like this. 
are actually two guitars, one playing extra notes and chords over the rhythm, but i 
only tabbed one guitar here.

full lyrics:
===========================================================================
There's a spider crawling on the bathroom mirror
Right on top of my right eye
And I can't stop staring back
How did I get this way
Take a big look at a living lie

Rags to rags and rust to rust
How do you stand when you've been crushed
So rags to riches was a bust

Sometimes I dream about it
What it's like back home
The railroad tracks and the pussywillow
But i had to leave it
Now i go back whenever my tired head hits the pillow

Rags to rags and rust to rust
How do you stand when you've been crushed
So rags to riches was a bust

Busted once again
Well Iíll show them one day
That i can buy and sell the world

And one day Iíll come through my American dream
But it won't mean a f*cking thing

Rags to rags and rust to rust
How do you stand when you've been crushed
So rags to rags and rust to rust
Don't let me go
