      Here is yet another Elliott Smith song from the Good Will Hunting 
soundtrack. I don't know the technical names for the chords (they are 
very wierd), but I will put what I call them.

      Artist: Elliott Smith
      Song: Between The Bars
      Transcribed and Submitted: Jon Vidal

      Tune a full step down

     Verse 1
    C(add A)        F#9
     Drink up baby, stay up all night
              C                         G2
     With the things you could do, you won't but you might
           C(add A)                 F#9
     The potential you'll be, that you'll naver see
          C        Em          F
     The promises you'll only make 

     Verse 2
     Drink up with me now, forget all about
     The pressure of days, do what I say
     And I'll make you OK, and drive them away
     The images stuck in your head

     F  G    Am            C(2)          F     G    D(bass)
     People you've been before that you don't want around anymore
           F        g               Am         
     They push and shove and won't bid to you well
    F               Fm
     I'll keep them still

     Verse 3
     Drink up baby, look at the stars
     I'll kiss you again between the bars
     Where I'm seeing you there, with your hands in the air
     Waiting to finally be caught

     Verse 4
     Drink up one more time, and I'll make you mine
     Keep you apart, take me my heart
     Separate from the rest, for I like you the best
     Keep the things you forgot


     Chords used:
     C(add A): 5XX553            Am: 577555
     F#9: 1X3213                 C(2): 8(10)(10)988
     C: 335553                   D(bass): 2XX232
     G2: X2X433                  Fm: 133111

There's a part in the chorus that uses the low E string. It goes: been before that you ------|--------------------| ------|--------------------| ------|--------------------| ------|--------------------| ------|--------------------| ------|--7---8---10----12--|
Like I said, the chords are really screwed up. Also, if anyone can help me with the lyrics to "No Name #3", I will post it. Comments or questions or corrections, email me at {}
