                             TEARS OVER BEERS - MODERN BASEBALL

Tabbed by: jamie mernick

Tuning:STANDARD


I saw Modern Baseball live last weekend, and I fell in love with them in only a
few short days. They opened with Tears Over Beers, so I searched for a tab and found 
mostly chords/tabs that looked
similar to this;

E-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
B-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
G-6---------6---------6---------|-6---------6---------6---------|
D-6---------6---------6---------|-6---------6---------6---------|
A-4---------4---------6---------|-5---------5---------4---------|

When I was just a boy, we'll call it 15 or so
E-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
B-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
G-6---------6---------6---------|-6---------6---------6---------|
D-6---------6---------6---------|-6---------6---------6---------|
A-4---------4---------6---------|-5---------5---------4---------|
E-------------------------------|-------------------------------|
I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in my bones


It also turns out that this is how the lead singer plays while he is singing. However,
I was having trouble hitting the notes with my voice, so I wrote a tab that made it
easier to find your correct pitches. This tab also sounds more melodic and pleasing
to the ear- especially if you're playing alone.

I have tabbed the intro, and wrote the chords and lyrics for the rest of the song.
I will refer to the chords by their bass note, as the main notes (G#+C#) do not change
for the majority of the song.

C#  x466xx
D   x566xx
D#  x666xx
F   x866xx
F#  x966xx
F#* 2x66xx -- if you cannot reach this, you can just play x966xx or whatever sounds good 
to you.

She realized if she wants conversation, she's out of luck for three more years


     C#    D#     F    F#            F     C#
When I was just a boy, we'll call it 15 or so,
  C#      D#    F           F#          F           C#
I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in my bones
     C#        D#       F       F#            F        C#
That girl who's next to me, she found herself bored to tears
    C#          D#         F                  D               D           C#
She realized if she wanted conversation, she's out of luck for three more years

      C#      D#       F     F#  F        C#
When I moved away from home, 100 miles or so,
  C#     D#         F               F#        F              C#
I knew a change had grown inside my awkwardly long limbs and bones
     C#        D#       F         F#           F              C#
That girl who's next to me, she's friendly and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty,
    C#      D#     F        F#               F            D
But all she has to say is a meat head-themed monologue on why Brad ran away


           C#        D#              F#*
She said, "All I can hope for is for me to get better,
        C#        D#         F#*
because all I can take is no more.
     C#            D#             F            F#
I'll win him back again, we'll be lovers, best friends.
         C#            D#            D                             C#
He won't need no other woman like he did way back when he was with me.


   C#     D#        F#*
He needed more than me
    C#           D#             F             F#
I'm friendly and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty,
       F      D         C#
But he needed more than me."


       C#        D#       F      F#            F           C#
When I felt that I should leave, we'll call it midnight or so,
  C#      D#    F           F#          F            C#
I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in her bones
     C#         D#      F       F#             F             C#
That girl who's next to me, she don't know her worth in this town,
            C#             D#              F           F#
because her face starts to shine when that meat head behind me
   F                D            C#
Is grinning as he's checking her out


          C#       D#              F#*
I said, "All I can hope for is for you to get better,
        C#        D#         F#*
Because all I can take is no more.
     C#           D#             F            F#
I'll hide where I can, away from you and your friends,
        F          D           C#
leaking tears over beers once again."


Thanks, please email me for suggestions/any notes I should take for future tabs, seeing
