Elliott Smith - A Fond Farewell guitar tab

Elliott Smith – A Fond Farewell

I’m not going to take the honor of tabbing this song, 'cause I have actually only made

a few adjustments on other people's work. It’s just that I found it annoying that there

was no real tab out there that combined the chords with the fingerpicking. So, therefore

I combined the works of the UG members: Dires and some other unknown tabber that made the

tabs for “Guitar Pro”.

E A E

my thoughts now black and white

Gbm Dbm

they took apart a picture that wasn't right

Ab barré A

pitch burning on a shining sheet

Gb barré A

the only maker that you'd want to meet

E A E

dying man in a living room

Gb Dbm

whose shadow paces the floor

Ab barré A

i'll take you out any open door

Chorus:

Gb A

this is not my life.

E

it's just a fond farewell to a friend

Gb A

not what i'm like

E

it's just a fond farewell to a friend

Gb A

couldnt get things right

E Dbm

fond farewell to a friend

He said really I just wanna dance

Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance

I can deal with some psychic pain

If it'll slow down my higher brain

Veins full of disappearing ink

Vomiting in the kitchen sink

Disconnecting from the missing link

1:51 min:

Chorus:

This is not my life

It's just a fond farewell to a friend

It's not what i'm like

It's just a fond farewell to a friend

I couldn't get things right

Fond farewell to a friend

2:18 min:

I see you're leaving me

And taking up with the enemy

The cold comfort of the in between

A little less than a human being

A little less than a happy high

A little less than a suicide

The only things that you really tried

2:46 min:

Chorus:

This is not my life

It's just a fond farewell to a friend

It's not what i'm like

It's just a fond farewell to a friend

I couldn't get things right

Fond farewell to a friend

Gb A

This is not my life

E Dbm

It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
