311 - Sometimes Jacks Rule The Realm tab

!!!!!THE CORRECT/COMPLETED "SOMETIMES JACKS RULE THE REALM" TAB!!!!!

-THIS IS A GREAT SONG, AND IT NEEDS A CORRECT/COMPLETED TAB.

-I Worked very long and hard on this tab for 2 days... SO IT'S GOOD

-Look out for how many dashes I put in between the numbers. That lets you know the 
of it.

-Watch the time lengths as well. I count the time by the last strum.

-Look for my ==== breaks, showing a switch from piece to piece.

Lyrics:

Sometimes jacks rule the realm,
Can't you tell,
The swimmers drown,
Without a sound.
A chalkboard scratching sound,
Could craze the town,
An emperor's clothes,
Never be exposed.

I took it as a compliment,
Regardless what they meant,
It could have been innocent,
Spent, so spent.
Railing against undeserved,
Dangling precipitants,
Raining down idiots,
Always flapping in the,
Flapping in the wind.

I took it as a compliment
No matter what they meant
Could have been belligerent
Could have been half percent
Could have been wanting
Afraid to be caught promising,
Ended up taunting me.

I can't change that,
I can't change,
I can't change that,
I can't change.

I'm watching you,
Not sure what's true,
Life can be so cruel,
There's nothing you can do,
But it fades...
Only to return,
I feel your eyes burn,
I really am concerned.

Sometimes jacks will rule the realm,
Sometimes jealousy will dwell,
You can't begin to dispel,
When you can not even tell.

What makes me act the way I do,
And why am I asking you,
What makes me act the way I do,
And why am I asking you,
What makes me act the way I do,
And why am I asking you.

Sometimes jacks will rule the realm,
Sometimes jealousy will dwell,
You can't begin to dispel,
When you can not even tell,
Sometimes jacks will rule the realm,
Sometimes jealousy will dwell,
You can't begin to dispel,
When you can not even tell.
