Tears Over Beers
This is meant to be played by yourself on acoustic and not to the song, but I guess it would work that way too. Please comment if you have any corrections! Capo 2 in standard (E) tuning. I went off of this dude's cover. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjgLZ7kOg-0 He said in the comments "the progression used and the way i play is B (x24400), C# (x46600), E (022400). The second part of the chorus I start at the E chord (022400), then I play F# (2x4400), and Ab (4x4400). And youll see how I sweep up and down those three chords. Hope that helps!" I'm just matching it up to the lyrics for the sake of convenience. You can decide whether to leave the other strings open or mute them. I prefer playing it open, like 024400 instead of x244xx B 024400 C# 046600 E 022400 F#/B 2x4400 Ab/B 4x4400 G/B 3x4400 (supposed to sound kind of diminished-y) C/B x24400 (this can be optional, it sounds wrong to me but it's the closet thing I could try) This can be played in the verses B C# E C/B B C# E When I was just a boy, we'll call it 15 or so, B C# E I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in my bones B C# E That girl who's next to me, she found herself bored to tears B C# E (N.C.) G/B (N.C.) She realized that if she wanted conversation, she's out of luck for three F#/B more years B C# E When I moved away from home, 100 miles or so, B C# E I knew a change had grown inside my awkwardly long limbs and bones B C# E That girl who's next to me, she's friendly and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty, B C# Ab/B G/B F#/B But all she has to say is a meat head-themed monologue on why Brad ran away E F#/B Ab/B F#/B She said, "All I can hope for is for me to get better, E F#/B Ab/B F#/B because all I can take is no more. E F#/B Ab/B F#/B I'll win him back again, we'll be lovers, best friends. E F#/B Ab/B F#/B He won't need no other woman like he did way back when he was with me. B C#/B E He needed more than me B C#/B E I'm friendly and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty, B C#/B E But he needed more than me." B C#/B E When I felt that I should leave, we'll call it midnight or so, B C#/B E I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in her bones B C#/B E That girl who's next to me, she don't know her worth in this town, B C#/B because her face starts to shine when that meat head behind me E Is grinning as he's checking her out E F#/B Ab/B F#/B I said, "All I can hope for is for you to get better, E F#/B Ab/B F#/B Because all I can take is no more. E F#/B Ab/B F#/B I'll hide where I can, away from you and your friends, E F#/B Ab/B F#/B leaking tears over beers once again."
