Thin Line - INDIGO GIRLS, from 1200 Curfews
(written by Gerard McHugh)

This is my first attempt at transcribing a song so please forgive any 
mistakes. It's quite simple though so there shouldn't be too many. For
G/B and G/A (these names are made up) you'll probably just want to play
strings 4 and 5, as if you were playing a power chord.

Chords: G=320033; Dsus/F#=200233; C9=x32033; D=xx0232;
        G/B=x20033; G/A=x00033

G   Dsus/F#   C9
[intro x2]

G              Dsus/F#       C9
 I thought the time   was    passed when I could

G              Dsus/F#       C9
          Find beauty in a verse

G              Dsus/F#       C9
     I set the stage and the scenery

G              Dsus/F#       C9
         Rehearsing every  word, yeah

     D               D
 But when I tried to make it more

             C9           G
 Well it was     always less

            D                 D
 And it's a thin line between pleasing yourself

              C9           G/B G/A G
 And pleasing     somebody e-  e-  else

 Dsus/F#        C9
         Oh yeah

      G      Dsus/F#            C9
 Oh yeah              All right


G              Dsus/F#       C9
     With my confidence on  fire
 
G              Dsus/F#       C9
     I set to fixin' up my    role

G              Dsus/F#       C9
       My separation of desire

G              Dsus/F#              C9
 Just left me  deeper down in the hole, yeah

 D               D
 When I tried to make it more

               C9          G
 Well it was      always less

            D                 D
 And it's a thin line between pleasing yourself

              C9             G
 And pleasing     somebody  else

          D               D
 Yeah and when I tried to make it more

                C9          G
 Well it was       always less

        D                 D
 It's a thin line between pleasing yourself

               C9          G/B     [PLAY TAB]
 And pleasing     somebody else
