This is the last song on Elliot Smith's "Needle in the Hay" 7", recorded
9/94 and distributed by Kill Rock Stars.  He always writes his lyrics out,
but I'll put 'em here anyway.  Transcribed by me, Jennifer Starfish.

it's all bar chords, and he uses all downstrokes to fill the spaces
between chord changes.  I'll refer to high E as "E!"

G#              C#		     G#

It's a junky dream, makes you so uptight

		C#		       G#

yeah, it's halloween tonight and every night

		      C#		   G#

hear you scratch your skin, your sandpaper throat

		  C#	       G#

you're a symphony man with one fckng note

		 C#	       G#

Darley? beat you up week after week

		  C#			G#

and when you grow up, you're gonna be a freak

	        	  A		F#

want a violent girl who's not scared of anything

B	F#	G#	    E!	

		    help me kill my 

B	F#	G#	      E!

time                'cos I'll never be

B	F#	G#	    E!

fine                help me kill my 

B	F#	G#


C#		 G#		    C#

you went down to look at old Dallas town
where you must be sick just to hang around
seen it on TV how to kill your man
then like Gacy's scene a canvas in your hand
you better call your mom she's out looking for you
in the jail and the army and the hospital too
but those people there couldn't do anything for you

help me kill my time
cos' I'll never be fine
help me kill my time
help me kill my time
help me kill my time
cos' I'll never be fine
help me kill my time (ends on G#)
