Natalie Merchant - The Living
Transcribed by: Tim Eggenberger
What a great great album - thanks for everything Natalie.
This is a very sad, beautiful, and easy to play song.

For the 'G' on the Intro, don't use the low 'E' string so as to leave
your index finger free for 1st fret fill.
For the 'D' chord, include the open 'A' string for flavor.

Tuning: Standard, Capo on #1

INTRO:

VERSE
[C]What's it like there [G]outside
With the [D]living, with the [C]living
[C]Here I've found a place [G]that I can hide
From the [D]living, from the [C]living

CHORUS
Cause I [G]don't care to [D]stay with the [C]living

VERSE
[C]Oh, the bottle has [G]been to me
[D]My closest friend, my [C]worst enemy
[C]Oh, fickle I [G]walked a fine line
[D]Squandered it all and [C]wasted my time

CHORUS
And I [G]don't stand a [D]chance among the [C]living

VERSE
[C]For the lovers I've [G]gambled and lost
[D]Count my mistakes what[C]ever the cost
[C]I'll go off, I'll [G]make myself scarce
[D]Oh, come tomorrow You [C]won't find me here

CHORUS
Because I [G]don't care to [D]stay with the [C]living
I don't [G]think I'll [D]remain with the [C]living

solo:
C G D C (crying)
C G D C (crying)

And I [G]don't care to [D]stay with the [C]living
No, I [G]don't care to [D]stay  [C]
