Elliott Smith - A Fond Farewell tab

Elliott Smith – A Fond Farewell

I’m not going to take the honor of tabbing this song, 'cause I have actually only made
a few adjustments on other people's work. It’s just that I found it annoying that there
was no real tab out there that combined the chords with the fingerpicking. So, therefore
I combined the works of the UG members: Dires and some other unknown tabber that made the
tabs for “Guitar Pro”.

E                   A         E
my thoughts now black and white
          Gbm                       Dbm
they took apart a picture that wasn't right
Ab                    barré A
pitch burning on a shining sheet
Gb                           barré A
the only maker that you'd want to meet
E                  A      E
dying man in a living room
Gb                        Dbm
whose shadow paces the floor
Ab                      barré A
i'll take you out any open door

Chorus:
Gb              A
this is not my life.
            E
it's just a fond farewell to a friend
Gb             A
not what i'm like
            E
it's just a fond farewell to a friend
Gb                   A
couldnt get things right
E                  Dbm
fond farewell to a friend

[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/e/elliott-smith/67647.html ]
He said really I just wanna dance
Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance
I can deal with some psychic pain
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Veins full of disappearing ink
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Disconnecting from the missing link

Chorus:
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what i'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
I couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend

I see you're leaving me
And taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried

Chorus:
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what i'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
I couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend
Gb            A
This is not my life
E                            Dbm
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
