Kevin Devine - No Time Flat chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Rough and simple tab.  Comment if you have a slicker way to play it.

Notes on the verse chords:
You can just play A, Dmaj7, F#m7, and Bm.  It'll sound fine.  I'm not gonna cover how 
you get the slide sound.

A Amaj7
Dmaj7 D6
(just alternate , real quick; play the B string of the Dmaj7 open)
F#m F#m7
(not what he actually does; you could just play the F#m7 and focus your 
picking/strumming on the D string at first, then the A string)
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7
(Bm9 is just Bm7 with three fingers (not barred), plus the second fret of the B-string.  
You're making the same figure as the Dmaj7-D6 alternation, plus the B bass note)

The chorus is just D and A, alternating.  You can also do the riff, which is something 
like this:

e|-----------------------0---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------2----0-2----------------------------------------------|
G|--2-2--2-2--4-2-4------------2---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------0-----------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------0-2----0-2-------|
G|--2-2-2-2s4-4--2-2------------------2--------2----2-2-------------2--------|
D|---------------------4-2--------2h4-----2h4--------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


A                  Amaj7
Your skin's in my mouth
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
But I'm thinking about
F#m          F#m7
thousands of things
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7
That don't got your name
A                  Amaj7
So I'm distant and weird
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
We stop and you're all ears
F#m          F#m7
But how can I say
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7             D
I've just been thinking that it's harder every year
                        A
To find excuses that'll keep me in the clear
                      D
The arbitrary lines I impress in the sand
                            A
The proof that piles in my trashcan
                                      D
While the skin on my hands is looking older every day
                                  A
The lies I've told have turned to leather on my face
                                 D
The love I've lost has turned to needles in my heart
                             A
But I'm to blame for all the bad parts
They're the choices I've made (hey hey)

A                  Amaj7
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
F#m          F#m7
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7
That's why I turn my face away

A                  Amaj7
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
F#m          F#m7
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7

A           Amaj7
I watch the debates
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
Till I can't see straight
F#m          F#m7
Take abortion away
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7
And both sides seem just the same

A               Amaj7
So I'm not sure why I vote
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
'Cause I just don't know
F#m                F#m7
What difference it makes
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7     D
It seems to me we get the same shit from them both
                                A
Reforms don't work I think it's time we tried revolt
                            D
But I don't got the guts to jump up and go first
                            A
So I'll just shout until my throat hurts
                                   D
And I curse and I curse at what we fucked up in Iraq
                                 A
You say "Support the troops!"  I do, I want them all brought back
                       D
And every building you bombed raised from the ground
                              A
And blow your contractors the fuck out
                         D
And if you really go and reinstate the draft
                                  A
Just straight away just split the country straight in half
                   D
Try arresting everyone who sends their draft cards back
                          A
I'll be returning mine in no time flat

D
No time flat
F#m
No time flat
Bm
No time flat
C#m   D    E
(yeah yeah yeah)
(ba da ba)

A                  Amaj7
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
F#m          F#m7
Bm9   Bm7   Bm9   Bm7

x2

A                  Amaj7
In a sense we're the same
Dmaj7   D6   Dmaj7  D6
Struggling to save face
F#m          F#m7
A question of scope
Bm9     Bm7      Bm9     Bm7
How far you're willing to go
A                      Amaj7
To make rights of your wrongs
Dmaj7      D6  Dmaj7   D6
Despite the risk involved
F#m          F#m7
A question of faith...

Bm9 [once, then no chords until D]

                             D
'Cause if we wait until we've all been burned to ash
                            A
To tell the truth about the shit buried in our past
                           D
We'll split a taxi to that fire pit way down south
                              A
So let's rise up and open our mouths
                                D
'Cause you remind me that it's harder every year
                        A
To find excuses that'll keep me in the clear
                      D
The arbitrary lines I impress in the sand
                           A
The proof that piles in my trashcan

And if you really go and reinstate the draft

You'll straight away just split the country straight in half

So try arresting everyone who sends their draft cards back
                          A  A    A
I'll be returning mine in no time flat
