Paul Westerberg - Its A Wonderful Lie tab

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Finally figured out a right-sounding way to play this. A lot of tabs I've seen don't 
work out, but this sounds good and looks like what Paul plays during live performances of 
song. So here we go (I've seen him use a 12 string, though it works well enough on a 6-er)

Chords:
Asus {x02200}
Dsus2* {xx0230}
F#m {244322}
C# {446644}
D# (?) {668866}


*when playing Dsus2, works to hammer on the E string to make D once in a while

Asus
Get up from a dream and I look for rain

Dsus2
Take an amphetamine and a crushed rat brain

F#m                            Dsus2
How am I feeling? Better, I suppose

Asus
How am I looking, I don't want the truth

Dsus2
What am I doin', I ain't in my youth

F#m                                       Dsus2
I'm past my prime... or was that just a pose?

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by on those


Asus
I've been accused of never opening up

Dsus2
You get too close then I keep my mouth shut

F#m                                                Dsus2
I'm gonna run to the wind where the big bad city blows

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by on those

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by on those.


Asus
Well you can dress to the eights, you can dress to main

Dsus2
Make you feel great, this fortune and fame

F#m                                            Dsus2
Wearin' too much make-up... not near enough clothes

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by on those

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by on those.


Asus
So don't pin your hopes or pin your dreams

Dsus2
On misanthropes or guys like me

F#m                                 Dsus2
But the truth is overrated... I suppose

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by on those

C#                      D#              Dsus2
It's a wonderful lie, I still get by ...


And that's it! In the studio version I believe there's an interlude in there somewhere, 
the 2nd or 3rd verse, but I've seen Paul play it live without, so, do whatever you want. 
first tab!
