Weakerthans - Farewell Faded Memory chords

      
As far as I know, this song is just by John Samson, but everyone seems to
post his songs under the Weakerthans.. so I'll just follow the trend for now


Standard tuning, no capo.

he plays E, Esus4, E, B, Badd9, B, A, Asus4, A, Asus4, A in the intro, butfor simplicity, I'll write the intro and verse as "E, B, A"
if you listen to the song, you can hear where he adds the variations, but it would just clutter it up if I wrote it out.
E Esus4 B Badd9 A Asus4 (and for the chorus) C#me|-----------------------------------------------------------4-|B|-0----0-----4-----4-----2-----3----------------------------5-|G|-1----2-----4-----6-----2-----2----------------------------6-|D|-2----2-----4-----4-----2-----2----------------------------6-|A|-2----2-----2-----2-----0-----0----------------------------4-|E|-0----0------------------------------------------------------|
intro E, B, A x4
E B AHey, another numbing light of early morning
E B A another pile of half-read books
E B A nice and safe in my serene surroundings
E B A evil smiles and empty looks
E B Awhy justify why you can think at all?
E B Ai guess i'm far too safe
E B Acry, falsify this turmoil of emotion
E B Aand you'll feel no pain, but
E B i'm pretty sure the sun will rise and
C#m give me the strength to shield my eyes
B Afrom all the lights and all the lies of compromise
E Band i always try to understand
C#m but looking back, it's hard to
Bknow that you were bought and sold
Afor a box filled full of spanish gold
he plays the intro 4 more times, but slows down throughout, and bend the accent notes. listen to the song and it makes sense. then from this point until the '*', just strum the chord once and let it ring. when you get to the '*', start playing the intro/ verse riff again
E B A i sifted through some archives yesterday
E B A met you in a photograph
E B A i saw your face and simply had to look away
E B A i know that that would make you laugh
*E B A so many things i guess i should remember
E B Abut i don't know how
E B Aso many things so easy to forget
E B Ai guess i miss you now, but
E Bi'm pretty sure the sun will rise and
C#m give me the strength to shield my eyes
B Afrom all the lights and all the lies of compromise
E B and is this a faded memory or
C#m did i see you crawling
B Aout towards the open sea so sad and free
Ewithout me
E B A oh, without me x3
E B Ai bid farewell to the faded memory
E B A then play around with the E and B for the end
