Elliott Smith - Waltz 2 Xo tab

Song: Waltz #2 (XO)
Artist: Elliott Smith
Album: XO

To play this song exactly like on the album recording, you need to tune your guitar a 
full step down.
Of course there are two or three guitars used, but Im just gonna write down the main 
chords and little bits so you can play the song pretty much on one guitar.

VERSE GUITAR REPEATS


Now shes done and theyre calling someone
Such a familiar name
Im so glad that my memorys remote
Cos Im doing just fine hour to hour, note to note
Here it is, the revenge to the tune
"Youre no good,
Youre no good, youre no good, youre no good"
Cant you tell that its well understood?

VERSE GUITAR REPEATS

Looking out on the substitute scene
Still going strong
XO, Mom
Its ok, its all right, nothings wrong
Tell Mr. Man with impossible plans to just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes
In the place where I have what it takes

CHORUS GUITAR REPEATS

Im never gonna know you now
But Im gonna love you anyhow
Im never gonna know you now
But Im gonna love you anyhow
Im never gonna know you now
But Im gonna love you anyhow
