Superchunk

Done by ear.  Lyrics are pulled off of some site (and incomplete).  
I play an acoustic and like playing with the AMaj7 (x02120), but the regular A 
(x02220) is fine (or power chords).  
I did a rough tab of the first guitar break.  

		   AM7				E
You finally pulled back when the world pulled your hair
AM7				E
Alone in the room with a question hangin
     AM7			E		F#m		E
You left with your hand in the air, and it's still there

AM7	E

B:  ------------12 | ------------12- | ------------12- | ---------
G:  9-9-9-9-9/11-- | 9-9-9-9-9/11--8 | 9-9-9-9-9/11--8 | --9-9----
D:  ---9---9------ | ---9---9------- | ---9---9------- | 11---11-9

        AM7		   E
At your age life moves so fast
	     AM7			E
Twelve years old, skinny legs, built to come in last
        AM7		   E
Had a mirror that would never lie
            F#m		   E
But ? never pays to try

AM7	E

F#m	E

F#m				
Everytime i saw you
	G#m			E	
You were trying so hard to explain
F#m
Broadcast failure
	G#m					E
Like a plastic bowl its spinning down the drain

		  E		F#m
But you came through, you came through
	G#m	F#m
When nobody expected you to
		E		F#m
You came through, you came through
	G#m		F#m
With all those narrowed eyes upon you
E	 F#m			G#m		B
You came through, you came through

AM7		E
AM7		E

F#m		E

	   AM7				E
Now you wish you weighed a thousand pounds
	   AM7				E
So you could crush all those bullies and demons down
	   AM7				E
From your seat at the back of the bus
		   F#m			E
You're still waving back at us

AM7	E

Everytime i saw you
	G#m			E	
You were trying so hard to explain
F#m
Broadcast failure
	 G#m					E	
Like a plastic bowl its spinning down the drain

		  E		F#m
But you came through, you came through
	G#m	F#m
When nobody expected you to
		E		F#m
You came through, you came through
	G#m		F#m
With all those narrowed eyes upon you
E	 F#m			G#m		B
You came through, you came through

AM7		E

E  F#  E (Not sure about these last chords, bass notes sound like E F# E, guitar 
sounds like E A G#, but it's your call)

Enjoy.  Always loved this song.  Post corrections/additions.
