Ben Folds Five - You To Thank tab

"You To Thank"
Ben Folds
Songs For Silverman
Tabbed by Mark Spurlock

This song, naturally, is for piano. I've tabbed it out for guitar with the aim of making
it sound as correct as possible while still being technically feasible for a solo player


These are just arpeggiated chords way up the fretboard.

Verse: Bb C F Bb C By the time the buzz was wearing off C7 F We were standing out on the sidewalk Bb C With our tattoos that looked like rings Bb C Bb In the hot Nevada sun Verse 2 Gifts piled high and our moms and dads shook hands And our party of polaroid friends Rented a pool and hired a band Bridge Bb F Maybe they knew more than we knew A Dm Bb Bbm Cause they danced and drank while we jumped off the deep end Chorus: In order to have the root notes make any melodic sense, play at least the first two chords from each line only on the high 4 strings (D G B e). If this part is too complex, you can simplify it by ignoring the altered root notes and just playing standard chords F F/A Bb F Oh I've got you C/E C/Bb A A To thank F F/A Bb F For this C/E C/D A A Christmas came around Yeah and everything was going to crap For moms and dads, not a clue to be had Yeah we put on a pretty good act And they seemed to all need to believe it So we danced and drank and paddled hard Beneath it Oh I've got you To thank For this Bb C Bb C Bb C A Bb You can't say you've ne-ver had a doubt C Bb C Bb C A F and smoked it down but really wanted out Play chorus sans lyrics. Then there's a solo. I found one transcription that claims its F Bb C A played 4 times. This sounds wrong to me, but whatever. If anyone feels inspired to figure out something here, more power to you. I'm moving on. By the time the buzz was wearing off We were standing out on the sidewalk With our tattoos that looked like rings In the hot Nevada sun Bb C F And they won't fade Chorus There you go.
