Eels - Trouble with Dreams

(transposed by Brian Allen)

Capo on 5th fret

I saw that there was another tab for this song, but it wasn't even close to
being right. This isn't how Eels play the song, but it should be the right
chords at least, and sounds good when played on acoustic guitar. There's a
lot of chords in this song, so make sure to check the list of chords at the
bottom, but it shouldn't be terribly difficult if you follow those. You can
also replicate the song's main riff (the xylophone thing) by playing this:

You can either do that on a second guitar, or if you're feeling adventurous finger pick it with the bass notes of the chords. I'm not going to tab that out, but if you can do it you can probably figure it out for yourself. Am Am/G# Am7/G (repeat this for the rest of the lines) There's nothing that i wanna do More than get alone and be with you Trouble with dreams is they don't come true And when they do they can't catch up to you D D/C# C G (repeat this for next line) You don't need a thing from me But i need something big from you Em Em/D# 'cause you know i've got Em/D Em/C# F D An awful lot of big dreams I'm walking down a lonely road Clear to me now but i was never told Trouble with dreams is you never know When to hold on and when to let go If you let me down it's alright At least that leaves something for me 'cause you know i've got An awful lot of big dreams This is the life that i must lead now Crossing fingers and wiping brow Trouble with dreams is you can't pretend Something with no beginning has an end You don't need a thing from me But i need something big from you 'cause you know i've got an awful lot of big dreams Chords: Am - X02210 Am/G# - 402210 Am7/G - 302010 Am7/F# - 202010 D - XX0232 D/C# X40232 C - X32010 G - 320033 Em - 022000 Em/D# - 021000 Em/D - 020000 Em/C# - 042000 F - 133211
