OK, since there are very few tabs for Alkaline Trio's earlier songs, I figured I'd take 
shot a tabbing some myself. This is my first tab, so it's probably not perfect, but (I 
it's close. It's pretty easy to play. Feel free to comment with any corrections.

That's it. Not too hard. SONG ORDER: Intro Verse Bridge Verse Chorus Verse 2 Chorus Outro End LYRICS: 14 hours ahead a head that's heavier than lead and I've got toothpicks in my eyes A smile more yellow than the sky I've got a song stuck in my head One that I miss more than my bed It's a song sung from a fallen milkman Who's drinking bleach instead I'm much like him 14 hours unfed I spent the last cents in my head They're worth much less than pennies now Food for one thought shared with a crowd and I've got a painting in my head A deeper blue bled thicker red More red than Bloody Marys coast to coast I hate flying I said - that's what I said Sad, sorry excuse Just like everything that made her smile and everything I use I won't go back to the way it was I'm now huffing gas and sniffing paint, to take away this buzz that I call you 14 hours ahead - a head that's heavier than lead Toothpicks pry open eyes A smile more yellow than the sky I've got a song stuck in my head One that I miss more than my bed It's a song sung from a fallen milkman Who's drinking bleach instead I'm much like him 14 hours unfed - I spent the last cents in my head They're worth much less than pennies now Food for one thought shared with a crowd I've got a painting in my head A deeper blue bled thicker red More red than Bloody Marys coast to coast I hate flying I said - that's what I said Sad, sorry excuse Just like everything that made her smile and everything I use I won't go back to the way it was I'm now huffing gas and sniffing paint, to take away this buzz that I call you
