Off He Goes
From: jeremy keehn 

ok, this one's not too tough... basically three chords, though there are 
some nice variations you can throw in if you want- i added in a
G/F-Asus2-Am pattern that can just be left as F-C-Am if you prefer...
and instead of playing Fs, you can play Csus4 (11033x)... that sounds
pretty good, too.

F C F C F C Am Know a man... His face pulled and tense... F C G/F Asus2 Am Like he's riding on a motorbike... in the strongest winds F C F C So I approach with tact... suggest that he should relax F C G/F F But he's always moving much too fast Am Asus2 Am Asus2 Am Said he'll see me on the flipside... of this trip he's taken for a ride F C F C F C He's been takin'... too much on... off he goes F C G/F Asus2 Am F C with his perfectly un--kept clothes... there he goes

F C Am F C F C He's yet to come back... but I see his picture F C F C Am F C Doesn't look the same up on the rack... we go way back F Am Asus2 Am Asus2 Am I wonder 'bout his insides... it's like his thoughts are too big for his size F C F C F C He's been taken... Where? I don't know... off he goes F C G/F Asus2 Am F C with his perfectly un--kept hope... there he goes [repeat chorus riff] F C F C And now I rub my eyes... for he has returned F C F C G/F Asus2 Am Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned F C For he still smiles... and he's still smiling F C F C G/F Asus2 Am Nothing's changed but the surrounding bullshit... that has grown F C F C And now he's home and we're laughing F C F C Am Like we always did... my same old... same old friend F C F C Until a quarter to ten... I saw the strain creep in F C F C G/F Asus2 Am He seemed distracted and I know just what is going to hap-pen next F C F C Before his first step... he is off again From: Alan Maxwell Herlihy <085516@bud.cc.swin.edu.au>
Am (strum Am a few times)E|---------0- B|---------1- G|---------2- x 2 D|-----3-2-2- A|---3-----0- E|-1---------
then F C CE|---------1-0-0-B|---------1-1-1-G|-------2-2-0-0-D|-----3---3-2-2-A|---3-----3-3-3-E|-1-------1-----
Then the rest of the song is basically just a combination or F, C and Am chords. A classic "3 chord"-er. There's also this little bit, or something similar.

T don't know off he goes withe his perefectly unkept hope there he goes and now I rub my eyes for he has returned seems my preconception are what should have been burned for he still smiles and hes still strong nothing's chaned but the surronding bullshit that has grown And now hes home and were laughing like we always did my same old same old friend Until a quarter to ten i see the strain creep in He seems ditacted and i know just what going to happen next before his first step he is off again I havent done the rest because it repeats itself i think.Comments e-mail me at. danielr@es.co.nz.
