Cursive – What Have I Done tab

Capo 5

The F is played 0332xx at first, and then the first fret is hammered on for the rest of
For the Am, strum x00000 and hammer on the entire chord in more or less the same rhythm
for the F.

The same progression is played throughout, so I'm only going to put the chords in for
first two verses (so you get an idea of timing). It's pretty straightforward. Also note
other than the two lines of laughter (and the Am/C/Dm/G7 progression that follows), 
no breaks inbetween the verses.

F                      C
        A year now and nothing much has changed
F                              C
        Holed up in a motel in El Paso
Am                        C
        This was meant to be my great escape
But, I got lost along the way
Amongst free HBO and take-out

F                         C
        Going to write my Moby Dick
F                                      C
        More like scratching lyrics on paper plates
Am                  C
        I spent the best years of my life
Waiting on the best years of my life
So what's there to write about?

What have I done?
What have I done?
So is this my destiny?
From starlight into eternity
The gods must be laughing down at me

Ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha

A traveling salesmen at twenty years old
Stranded in Ann Arbor with a flat tire
And I watch the sun sadly set
Any younger, I may have wept
Much older, I wouldn't notice

But I was out there in the world
Yeah, then the world, it passed me by
I was telling everyone back home
That I was taking it by storm
Instead, I watched it from the roadside

What have I done?
What have I done?
So are these the best tales I can spin?
A boy waiting to begin
A man with no memoirs

What have I done?
What have I done?
You're young and you're going to be someone
Then you're old and you're ashamed of what you've become
Well, take a look around you, You're preaching to the choir

What have I done? What have I done? (Repeat endlessly, or until your lose your voice...)
