Eli Young Band - Guinevere tab

Artist: Eli Young Band
Song: Guinevere
Tuning: Standard

This tab should be pretty close to the album version of the song. You can either play
the riffs for the intro/verse 1 as i've tabbed out below or play the chords which i've
also put above the lyrics. The two G chords with the asterisk (*) are only played if you 
are not playing the tabbed riff.

(Chords in Parenthesis are the base chords for each riff, the 'base' chords are shown below):

C She's got a bumper like a billboard G Covered in stickers of her favorite band Am She's got a handful of records that she turns to F When she needs to land Am G* (play this if not picking riff above for Verse) She's a saturday night parade through the streets F G That all eyes some to see including me (Drums enter; Repeat First Riff above--Same as first part of the verse) C G She carries memories around like souvenirs down in her pockets Am F She should have let some go by now but can't seem to drop it Am G* (same as G* above) Says forgiveness ain't nothing but a lifeless tire on the F shoulder of her soul G That never rolls Chours: Am F C For as much as she stumbled she's runnin' Am F C For as much as she runs she's still here Am G F C Always hoping to find something quicker than heaven C C G To make the damage of her days disappear F G Am F C Just like Guinevere C G She don't hold onto nothin' new for very long Am Yeah she writes you in as just one more tale F and then you're gone Am G 'Cause she once fell hard 'cause she dropped her guard F G And no one gets to stay it's just too late (Repeat Chorus) Am F C Just like Guinevere Am F C For as much as she's stumbled she's runnin' Am F C For as much as she runs she's still here (Repeat Chorus) Am F C Oh Just like Guinevere (instrumental)
