Elliott Smith - Christian Brothers chords

Elliott Smith - Christian Brothers

Tabbed by: Nick Verveniotis

All down strums on the chords.

Tuning: Whole step down.

All the other tabs for this song are grossly inaccurate. Mine is 99% correct.
And the reason it isn't 100% correct is because I'm using more strings in a
given chord than Elliott Smith did himself. This results in a fuller sound.

The lyrics, for your convenience:


No bad dream fucker's going to boss me around
Christian Brothers going to take him down
But it can't help me get over

Don't be cross, it's sick what I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off

Fake concerns is what's the matter, man
And you think I ought to shake your motherfucking hand
Well, I know how much you care

Don't be cross, it's sick what I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off

Come here by me, I want you here
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear
