VERSE 1
F (Riff 2)                                Bb
You are the first thing I think of, every time Im feeling abused.
F                                  Bb              F
Youre someone with a penchant, for helping to be relieved.

CHORUS:
    Dm               G              Bb       F
But where-ere do you turn,    cause Ive been burned.
      Dm               G              Bb                   F
While you have lear-er-er-erned,   to follow me out of the room.

Riff 2
F(Riff 2)                              Bb              F
Monday is coming soo-oon,   I hope you find me with nothing to do.
F                                                 Bb              F
I need an excuse to take it up a notch, to use my head and follow thru.

REPEAT CHORUS

MIDDLE 8:
s/A7           Bb                   F                Dm
I know my reservations well.  They,   keep me out of range.
A A7           Bb                                 G                   F
I cant seem to integrate, and Id rather stay this way-ay. Way-a-a-ay.

      Dm               G              Bb                   F
While you have lear-er-er-erned,   to follow me out of the room.
   Bb                   F          Bb                   F(Riff 2)

Song ends on 4th cycle of Riff 2.

Notes: The riff is easier to play than diagram. 
       I think all the essential elements are tabbed here.
       The first position 6-string F chord is the root of the riff.
       Riff 1 Sounds like its all from the first fret. 
       Riff 2 includes the slide up to the 6th fret barred Bb position.
              Sounds like guitar riff alternately uses (double notes).
       Riff 3 Sounds like all single notes, the bass sounds the Bb note 
             at the recurring change to Bb.

This is one of the best songs on the album ((PALAIS)).
