"Lost in Germany" by King's X

    From the Album: King's X
        Written by: D. Pinnick, T. Tabor, J. Gaskill, and S. Taylor
            Tab by: John Myers

    Note:
      1) The E string is tuned down to D
      2) This song has many portions that are "muffled" (or "heavily
         damped") as well as pull-offs, hammer-ons, & slides. I have
         not tried to included all of those things here. If I did, I
         would  probably only get it wrong. Use your best judgement...
      3) I have tried to show timing under each tab. If you know
         the song, you probably won't need it, but I included it anyway
         for the "timing" nit-pickers (of which I am a charter member)
      4) If you use the tab, find it helpful, find something wrong, etc,
         send an email to: myers@airmail.net  Feedback is appreciated.

Bridge (or "other part", depending on your musical knowledge & prowess) I broke the bridge into two levels of complexity. This way, the less dexterous guitar player can focus on the melody (bass) line before attempting to add the "fill" notes. Bridge: type a) this part shows just the promenant melody line)

Lyrics: Verse: Moving in a bus too close for comfort Listening to all the gibberish around me wonder! How much longer can I stand it Looking for a phone I cannot find PreChorus: Ohh woe is me Like a politician in disguise You know I had to look you in the eyes and smile While I crawled another mile in Chorus: Germany, lost in Germany Verse: Swimming in an ocean of your feelings Counting every moment go one by one Laughing to keep from crying out in anger Praying that i can make it through this night PreChorus: Ohh woe is me It was like a never ending week But I learned to turn the other cheek and smile While I ran for one more mile in Chorus: Germany, lost in Germany Germany, lost in Germany Verse: Shooting at a target that eludes me Hammering on a nail that just won't go in Biting on a tongue that wants to speak out Searching for a light that I can shine PreChorus: Ohh woe is me But now I have crossed that borderline and I wonder if I'll ever find your hand `Cause I did not understand in Chorus: Germany, lost in Germany Germany, lost in Germany Well... that's it. I know that I haven't included all the pull-offs, slides, hammer-ons, etc, but I think that the notes and timings are all fairly accurate. Enjoy, Good Luck, & remember...
