The Freshmen - The Verve Pipe

Tabbed by:  Steve Jang

USE -=SIZE 8 FONT=- FOR BEST RESULTS

This is an update to my older post.  I looked at it a couple of weeks ago, and
I didn't realize how many mistakes I left in there.  This version should be
very close to how the song is really played.  My older version is at the bottom
in case you wanted to see the differences.
Any comments are welcome.  Send to:  primetim@ix.netcom.com

Intro: (Intro Riff w/ Fill 1. the 2nd time) Verse 1: (Verse Riff) When I was young I knew everything And she a punk who rarely ever took advice Now I'm guilt-stricken, sobbing with my head on the floor Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no Pre-Chorus: (Pre-Chorus Riff) I can't be held responsible, 'cause she was touching her face I won't be held responsible, she fell in love in the first place Chorus: (Chorus Riff) For the life of me I can not remember What made us think that we were wise, and we'd never compromise For the life of me I can not believe We'd ever die for these sins, we were merely freshmen (Fill 1.) Verse 2: (Verse Riff) My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her His girl took a week's worth of Valium and slept And now he's guilt-stricken sobbing with his head on the floor Thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he says Pre-Chorus (Pre-Chorus Riff w/ Fill 2. 4X) Chorus (Chorus Riff w/ Fill 2. 4X at the end) Verse 3: (Chorus Riff) We've tried to wash our hands of all of this We never talk of our lacking relationships And how we're guilt-stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip, we'd say Pre-chorus (Pre-Chorus Riff w/ Fill 2. 4X) Chorus 2X (Chorus Riff 2X) Outro (Intro Riff 2X w/ Fill 1., then Outro Riff) #----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------# #This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the # #song.

Not everything in the song follows this tab EXACTLY, so improvise a little and listen to the song for the very minor parts.
