Crash Test Dummies - Songs Of The Unforgiven tab


I love this album, but after growing
tired of trying to find any guitar tabs
for it I decided to do it myself.

Note: The notes that are bracketed
are bass notes, usually quickly played
during your transition into the next
They don't have to be played, but can
add to the song if you do.


(The note played just before the first chord)

C# F# C#

C#                    G#            C#
And when the sun goes down into the sky,

  C#                            G#
Together we shall sit and shall sup,

       A#m                            G#
And we shall eat, and drink the heady wine,

C#               F#           C#
Let us share the over-flowing cup.

(Repeat chords until...)

   A#m                              F
So let us walk and feel the cooling breeze,

  F#                         A#m
Until they're just forgotten memories.


G D Em D

G D Em C x3

G                        D
These things will be the way they will,

Em                 Am     Cm
And I will be this me.

Ends on Cm.

This is my suggested picking for
the intro and verses (barre chords):

h = Hammer on.
