Alanis Morissette - Orchid chords

      
Okay, so this is the first song I've tabbed myself and I fear the 
possibility thatit may turn out to be an epic failure as far as tabs are 
concerned. I really love this absolutely beautiful and brilliant song so 
much. I'm really just a singer, but I like to dabble in acoustic guitar 
to have something to sing over. I've been searching for this song for ages 
and I haven't been able to find a live video performance or a written tab 
for it. So in my desperation, I resorted to using my ear, hehe.
	
Corrections,criticisms and/or advice on tabbing is highly encouraged, though I 
would appreciate politeness! :-D 
This is my first time after all!

(Intro)


G		 Em (x2)


(Verse 1)


G Em Me and my helmet
G Em Such an unconventional kid
G Em All intense and kinetic
Am D At best, tolerated from afar
(Verse 2)
G Em Not yet arrested
G Em and by that, I mean betrothed
G Em Though at start, I am duly courted
Am D I've just not been trusted with altars
(Chorus 1)
G Em I'm a sweet piece of work
G Em Well intentioned, yet disturbed
Am C Wrongly labeled and underfed
Am D Treated like a rose as an Orchid
G Em (x2) .......(Interlude)..........
(Verse 3)
G Em My friends as they weigh in
G Em Get understandably protective
G Em They have a hard time being objective
Am D So inside we cancel each other out
(Chorus 2)
G Em I'm a sweet piece of work
G Em Well intentioned, and unnerved
Am C Enabled and misunderstood
Am D Treated like a rose as an Orchid
(Middle Eight)
G Bm You've brought water to me
G Bm Making sure my bloom rebounds
G Bm You know best of what my special care allows...
(Verse 3)
G Em So I've lived in my blind spot
G Em Thought myself usual when I'm not
G Em In your garden is a nice spot
Am D As long as it is brave and where you are
(Chorus 3)
G Em For this sweet piece of work
G Em High maintenance and deserted
Am C I've been different and deserving
Am D Treated like a rose as an Orchid
(Chorus 4)
G Em Sweet piece of work
G Em Overwhelmed, unobserved
Am C I've been bowed down to but so misread
Am D Treated like a rose as an Orchid
(Ending) G Em (play to fade or end on G...) (Ad Lib vocal embellishments to fade or til final G...) Well, that's all folks. Please let me know if you have any feedback or corrections. I can be reached at Luaeria@yahoo.com Take care! Kate
