[intro]

G  A  Gbm  Bm  A

G  A  Bm  A  E

[verse1]
G       A  Gbm  Bm   A
Another day   I call and never speak
G            A    Bm        A          E
And you would say nothing's changed at all
G           A    Gbm   Bm       A
And I can't feel  much hope for anything
G          A           Bm        A      E
If I won't be there to catch you if you fall


[chorus]
G     D
Again
            A
It seems we meet
       G      D
In the spaces
   A
In between
          G    D
We always say
            A
It won't be long
    Bm          A      G
But something's always wrong

[verse2]
G       A    Gbm  Bm      A
Another game   of putting things aside
G           A    Bm      A         E
As if we'll come back to them some time
G          A    Gbm  Bm      A
A brace of hope   a pride of innocence
G             A   Bm        A        E
And you would say something has gone wrong


[chorus]
G     D
Again
            A
It seems we meet
       G      D
In the spaces
   A
In between
          G    D
We always say
            A
It won't be long
    Bm          A      E
But something's always wrong


[bridge]
G         A       Gbm    Bm   A
Li - ah - ha - ah                       (something like that :-) )
G         A       Bm     A    E
Li - ah - ha - ah
G         A       Gbm    Bm   A
Li - ah - ha - ah
G         A       Bm     A    E
Li - ah - ha - ah

But something's always wrong
Bm          A       G
Something's always wrong
Bm          A
Something's always wrong

I found a transcription of this song at Nevada, but it needed a capo.  My 
version doesn't.  Also, my intro riff transcription is different.  
Anyway, enjoy!

Someone requested this a week or so ago -- sorry, it took awhile to chart:


		SOMETHING'S ALWAYS WRONG       - Toad the Wet Sprocket


INTRO:
(my own interpretation; they use more harmonics and/or keyboard (bell) tones)

 C   D   Bm   Em   D/F#bass

 C   D   Em   D    A/C#bass


 C       D   Bm   Em      D/F#bass
Another day....I call and never speak
 C             D      Em        D        A/C#bass
And you would say....nothing's changed at all
 C           D    Bm     Em       D/F#bass
And I can't feel....much hope for anything
 C         D               Em       D      A/C#bass
If I won't be there....to catch you if you fall


  C     G             D              C     G        D
Again,   it seems we meet,   in the spaces   in between
           C    G             D               Em          D     Cadd9 
We always say,   it won't be long,   oh, but something's always wrong


(see INTRO Tab)


Another game....of putting things aside
As if we'll come....back to them sometime               (same chords as
A brace of hope....a pride of innocence                    1st verse)
And you would say....something has gone wrong

  C     G             D              C     G        D   
Again,   it seems we meet,   in the spaces   in between
           C    G             D               Em          D     A/C#bass
We always say,   it won't be long,   oh, but something's always wrong


C   D   Bm   Em   D/F#bass   /   C   D   Em   D    A/C#bass          

(play above progression twice, with vocal 'ooh's and 'aay's)
         

      C     G             D              C     G        D
And again,   it seems we meet,   in the spaces   in between
           C    G             D               Em          D     Cadd9   
We always say,   it won't be long,   oh, but something's always wrong
 Em	     D     Cadd9     Em          C      D    Dsus4 D
Something's always wrong,   something's always wrong


(play INTRO Tab, then verse progression twice to close)

----

That 'A/C#bass' chord is played like this:  x4222x , or add the 'A'
bass note, like so:  54222x.  Also, leading into the chorus, try a
variation of opening up the treble strings, like this:  542000.


Cool song -- hope you like my arrangement!
