Subject: Somebody to Shove by Soul Asylum

"Somebody to Shove," by Soul Asylum.
From their 1992 Columbia release Grave Dancers' Union.

Tabbed out by Keith E. Law (law2@husc.harvard.edu).

This is an easy one. The opening riff is:

-----------------------|--15-------14----------|--17-------14----------|-----12-------12----15-|-----16-------16----16-|--------12-------12----|--------14-------14----|-----------------------|-----------------------|-----------------------|-----------------------|-----------------------|
Played a few times. The pattern behind the verses is (Cmaj7-B5) 3 times, + B5:
------------|------------|------------|------------|------------|------------|------------|------------|--4---4--4--|--4---4--4--|--4---4--4--|--4---4--4--|--5---4--4--|--5---4--4--|--5---4--4--|--4---4--4--|--3---2--2--|--3---2--2--|--3---2--2--|--2---2--2--|------------|------------|------------|------------|
The chorus is actually two guitars, but the two parts are easily combined. One plays G-A5-G/B-C, while the other repeats the pattern on the two highest strings:
------3----|------3----|------3----|------3----|---------3-|---------3-|---------3-|---------3-|--0--------|--2--------|--0--------|--0--------|--0--------|--2--------|--0--------|--2--------|--2--------|--0--------|--2--------|--3--------|--3--------|-----------|-----------|-----------|
Behind "Cause I... want somebody to shove...", just play: C5 B5 A5 C5 I don't know the solo offhand, but it starts out in E-major:
------------|--------------|----12-- etc.------------|--7^h---------|-12-----------------|--------9p7---|-------------4-5--7-|------------9-|----------7---------|--------------|--------------------|--------------|--------
Just an educated guess. At the end, repeat the intro riff. End on G (3rd string, 12th fret). Lyrics: Grandfather watches the grandfather clock And the phone hasn't rang for so long The time flies by like a vulture in the sky Suddenly he breaks into song CHORUS 1: And I'm waiting by the phone I'm waiting for ya to call me up and Tell me I'm not alone Yes, I'm waiting by the phone I'm waiting for ya to call me up and Tell me I'm not alone Hello, speak up, is there somebody there These hang-ups are getting me down In a world frozen over with overexposure Let's talk it over, let's go out and paint the town CHORUS 1 CHORUS 2: Cause I want somebody to shove I need somebody to shove I want somebody to shove me You're a dream for insomniacs Prize in the Cracker Jacks All the difference in the world is just a call away...
