Real World by Matchbox 20
From the LP 'yourself or someone like you'

Tabbed by Luke Hayward (

I just got this album today (11/5/98) so i don't know much about them.
Only, that this is the only song not on the OLGA that I've worked out. So
here it is. I thought I almost had the solo for a minute (it's not hard), but
everytime I played it, it sounded different each time. I dunno. Work it out

Intro riff

A# F G F A# F G F I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker A# F G F A# F G F I wonder what it's like to know I made the rain A# G A# I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone G [intro riff] And you can come and see them when I'm...done, when I'm done (as first verse) I wonder what it's like to be a super hero I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow sun Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're stunned A# C F Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here A# C F If I were someone else, would this all fall apart A# C F Strange, where were you, when we started this gig, A# C F I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me [intro riff] (second guitar repeats a tone on the 13th fret on the high E) (as first verse) I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said I'd shout out an order, I think we're out of this man get me some Boy don't make me wanna change my...tone, my tone (chorus) C G A# A# Please don't change, please don't break C G A# A# The only thing that seems to work at all is you C G A# A# [intro riff] Please don't change, at all from me [intro riff] to you, and you to me (chorus) That's pretty much it. Sorry it's a bit lame.
