Tuning = a rare STANDARD for Mr. Malkmus.

These are the actual chords, but it’s a lot easier w/ a capo on 1st fret. If playing w/ capo 1st fret, obviously just move each chord down half step for appropriate fingerings. C# C#/C Bleed the pot When you're hot you're hot Bbm F# And when enough is enough Do the fakers drop out? C# C#/C Promise me You will always be Bbm F# Too awake to be famous Too wired to be safe C# C#/C But all you really wanted *Bbm F# Was everything Plus everything C# G# F# C# And the truth I only poured you Half a line
*Lead Guitar Part (starts at “Everything Plus everything…”)E|-----------------------------------------------------------|B|-------------2-4-2-4-2-4-4/6------6/4-----4h6-4/2----------|G|-3-5-3-5-3-5-----------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------------|A|------------------------------------------------------3----|E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
(Play intro part again here) C# C#/C Carry on It's a marathon Bbm F# Take me off the list I don't want to be missed C# C#/C Carrion Its what we all become Bbm F# From small minds and tall trees Away from the action C# C#/C But all you ever wanted *Bbm F# Was everything And everything C# G# F# C# Plus the truth I only poured you Half alive Half alive C# G# F# C# I only poured you half a lie *(Lead Guitar part shown above played here as well) (Next Malkmus plays the intro w/ subtle variations in it. I just improvise this part.) (Now, this weird double guitar harmony solo thing (at 2:17) is impossible to figure out. Sorry. Please email me if you can figure it out.) (Now for this guitar solo, there is a second guitar part harmonizing along the way, but this is the main melody for the solo. Play it alone and it’ll still sound nice. The end gets sort of questionable, but still sounds close. Then the last 5 notes are a perfectly awesome ending. Listen to song for exact timing of everything.)

Enjoy! Such a great song. I was surprised I couldn't find a tab, so I decided to do it myself. Peace.
