Elliott Smith - Alameda guitar tab

Alameda

Elliott Smith

I think everything is right in this tab, except for the spot between the first chorus and the third verse, which may actually be right.

Tune down one whole step

Verse 1

C A6/9 Am

You walk down Alameda shuffling your deck of trick cards

F

Over everyone

C F B

Like some precious only son

Am F

Face down, bow to the champion

Verse 2

You walk down Alameda looking at the cracks in the sidewalk

Thinking about your friends

How you maintain all them in

A constant state of suspense

Chorus 1

Dm E Am

For your own protection over their affection

Eb Gm

Nobody broke your heart

C F* Bb C*

You broke your own 'cos you can't finish what you start

Verse 3

Walk down Alameda brushing off the nightmares you wish

Could plague me when I'm awake

So now you see your first mistake

Was thinking that you could relate

Bridge:

F5 G5 Am*

For one or two minutes she liked you

G5 F G5 Am

But the fix is in

Solo over verse chords

Chorus 2

You're all pretension

I never pay attention

Nobody broke your heart

You broke your own 'cos you can't finish what you start
