John Frusciante - The Past Recedes
From the album "Curtains"
Enjoy!

Intro:

G - D - Am - Em (3x)
G - D - Am (Stop)

Verse 1
G            D        Am     Em
  And then the past recedes
G        D         Am     Em         
  And I won't be involved
G        D         Am     Em
  The effort to be free
G            D          Am
  Seems pointless from above

Verse 2:
G          D            Am    Em
 You're looking down at me
G       D          Am   Em
 I'd rather stay below
G                 D          Am  Em
 Than have you staring up at me
G                 D         Am   Bsus-B (You can just use B, works fine)
 There's no where I want to go

Chorus 1:
C          D#dim7         Em            D
Ay, this business of how long we try to stay alive
C       D#dim7              Em     
Why to be here you've first got to die
     D
So I gave it a try
C               Em7
And what do you know
            Am         B
Time was so long ago

Verse 3
G           D              Am   Em
 And thinks come back you see
G         D              Am   Em
 To where they don't belong
G       D          Am     Em
 And every drop of sea
G    D         Am     Bsus-B (same thing)
 Is the whole ocean

Chorus 2:
   C            D#dim7
I lied to the greatest thieves
      Em           D
About anything and everything
C      D#dim7       Em
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
    D
I'm out of reach
    C               Em7
Oh, I can't play it safe
            Am            B
But I might just in case

Adlib: (Do Intro Chords then on the 4th time G-D-Am-B)

Chorus 3
   C    D#dim7         Em
Oh, I'm disguised as a reaching hand
      D
I'm a working man
  C            D#dim7
I don't understand why clockout
Em            D
Comes so slow every time
       C          Em7          Am
That's one line I stay right behind
       C          Em7          Am      B...
That's one line I stay right behind

Yeah...

Do Intro Chords 3x then 4th time G-D-Am-B
