Elliott Smith - Stupidity Tries chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
-the arrangement on the recording is huge, so the instrumental parts (while not 'wrong') 
a lot to the imagination

- chord names in parentheses are passing chords which are really short in duration.  The 
in the chorus just follows the melody, so the bass note is likely all you need.

The somewhat complicated chords:

     e--4--  --2--  --2--|
     b--2--  --2--  --2--|
     g--2--  --3--  --2--|
     d--2--  --2--  --4--|
     a--x--  --x--  --2--|
     E--0--  --0--  -----|

E            E7
Got a foot in the door
A              Am

Savannah shoulder raised a cheer
C  C/B (A) G    B      (C)
Coloring the sky with ash
C#m    E        F#           A
Because they found some privateer

To sail across the sea of trash

The enemy is within

Don't confuse me with him
