**THIS IS THE BETTER VERSION OF THE TWO I SUBMITTED**

Subject: Chords: "It's Not Me" by Supergrass

From the Album In it for the Money

I've always loved this chord-rich song, and def compliments to the tab done by Frederic Maquet
way back when (especially the schwowom;), but when I heard the third chord in particular, I
felt there was a straight up 7th missing in there instead of the Dmaj7.  I'm figuring this out
on a piano, so I'm also adding some bass notes to some chords to root them more in the very
expressive original version.  So this is a variation on Maquet's guitar tab figured out on a
piano in case anyone wants to add the keyboard dimension that the song originally had.



Intro: (play slowly)
   ------
    F#m7     F#m6/B     D7/A       F#7sus4/G#
(the bass note starts on F#, then as it goes to F#m6/B it first hits A then B, then drops to A
during the D7 chord, then drops another half note to ground the F#7sus4,
on the second pass, the D7 is grounded in a higher D bass and drops a half
note to C#)

Verse 1:
-------
F#m7              F#m6/B         D7/A            F#7sus4/G#
       Over their heads, I find a place to crawl away.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/s/supergrass/243373.html ]
F#m7           F#m6/B            D7/D            F#7sus4/C#
       So many times, I hear the things they use to say.

G#        C#11/C#  (with added "schwowwom" effect- thnx Frederic Maquet)


Verse 2: (same chords as verse 1)
--------
Into the night, the conversation fades away.
Losing the drift, of all the things I have to say.

G#         C#11/C#
(I play the C#11 chord with these notes: B C# D# F# G# rooted over a C#)

Chorus:
-------

F#2              A6
It's not me, no, no, not me.
    F#2               Asus2/D
But I don't know what is.

  F#2             A6
I try and find my piece of mind.
    F#2            Asus2/D
But I know what I'll miss.

(F#2 just add a G# to the major chord, Asus2 can be played as DEAB/D)

Bridge:
-------
         G#                            C#11/C#
Now it's gone. Now it's gone. Now it's gone.

F#2         A6           G#          C#11/C#
As everyone listens,   my head turns away.
F#2             A6              G#         C#11/C#
I know what I'm missing.    But nothing is saaaaid

Chorus (x2)
-----------
  F#2               F#7sus4
But I know what I'll miss

Quick succession:
/    /  / /  /   /  /  /  /  /(hold)
B       B F# B   B  F# B  F# F#....
