			     Rags To Rags - Eels
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: acoustic-fish
Tuning: EADGBe (standard)

there are already a few tabs for this song... but i find it easier to play it like this. 
are actually two guitars, one playing extra notes and chords over the rhythm, but i 
only tabbed one guitar here.

Enjoy!! full lyrics: =========================================================================== There's a spider crawling on the bathroom mirror Right on top of my right eye And I can't stop staring back How did I get this way Take a big look at a living lie Rags to rags and rust to rust How do you stand when you've been crushed So rags to riches was a bust Sometimes I dream about it What it's like back home The railroad tracks and the pussywillow But i had to leave it Now i go back whenever my tired head hits the pillow Rags to rags and rust to rust How do you stand when you've been crushed So rags to riches was a bust Busted once again Well Iíll show them one day That i can buy and sell the world And one day Iíll come through my American dream But it won't mean a f*cking thing Rags to rags and rust to rust How do you stand when you've been crushed So rags to rags and rust to rust Don't let me go =========================================================================== | / slide up | slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ============================================================================
