Elliott Smith - Twilight tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
No tab in here has the solo, so i'll tab that out. Being a tab reader, i hate having to 
between tabs, so ill put the rest in here too.

Standard Tuning (I play it tuned a step down because it works better with my voice)

On the D chord, i put the a string in parenthesis. 
Because its hard to mute out, and it sounds
perfectly fine, you can play it if you want. 
Technically you aren't supposed to, but it 
the same.

Haven't laughed this hard in a long time,

Better stop now, before I start crying.

Go off to sleep in the sunshine

Don't want to see the day when it's dying.

       D
She's a sight to see

          F7/C
She's (a) good to me

        Am      G          F    C/G
But I'm already somebody's baby.

        D
She's a pretty thing,

          F7/C
She knows everything

        Am      G          F    C/G
But I'm already somebody's baby.

You don't deserve to be lonely,

           Am                 G             F      C/G

Pretty soon you'll find its the only

       Am                       G          F      C/G
Little part of your life you're keeping together.

I'm nice to you,

I could make it through

           Am      G           F    C/G
But you're already somebody's baby.

I could make you smile,

       F7/C
If you stayed a while

        Am            G              F    C/G
But how long will you stay with me, baby?

F7/C
Because your candle burns too bright

       Am        G             F      C/G
Well I almost forgot it was twilight.

F7/C
Even if I think that you are right

         Am             G
Well I'm tired of being down,

      F        C/G
I got no fight.

You're wonderful

       F7/C
When its beautiful

        Am      G          F

And this is 100% how you play it. You can have some liberty with the notes in the solo. 
apologize if the chords are off of the words, 
I have a few syllables I do different than elliott
does in his recording, i don't know why.
