Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Ode To My Family  Cranberries



Hi everyone! Having taken so much stuff from the Nevada site, I
thought I'd take a bit of time to figure this one out.
Intro:
For the intro, play the chords in an arpeggio style.
        [D]        [Bm]        [F#m]        [G]  Verse:
When playing the chords, pick the strings in random order avoiding the bass
strings.
Understa[D]nd the t[Bm]hings I [F#m]say, don't turn a[G]way from me
Cause [D]I spent half [Bm]my life out t[F#m]here, yo[G]u wouldn't disagree.
D'y[D]ou see [Bm]me, d'[D]you s[Bm]ee, do yo[F#m]u like me, do you l[G]ike me standing there.
D'y[D]ou noti[Bm]ce, d'[D]you k[Bm]now, do y[F#m]ou see me, do you s[F#m]ee me, do[G]es anyone care.
Chorus:
[D]Unhappin[Bm]ess, where's when [F#m]I was young, and [G]we didn't give a damn.
'C[D]ause we were ra[Bm]ised, to s[F#m]ee life as f[G]un and take it if we can.
[D]My mothe[Bm]r, my mother s[F#m]he hold me, did she hold me, when [G]I was out there.
[D]My fathe[Bm]r, my father, he li[F#m]ked me, oh he liked me, doe[G]s anyone care.
Verse 2:
Understand what I've become, it wasn't my design.
And people everywhere think, something better than I am.
But I miss you, I miss 'cause I liked it, I liked it, when I was out there.
D'you know this, d'you know, you did not find me, you did not find,
does anyone care.
Repeat chorus
D: xx0232
Bm: 224432
F#m: 244322
G: 320033

[-----]Ode to My Family

From Kevin Joson
I've seen the previous post to OLGA, and I guess it's okay, but here's
another spin on it. Being an average guitarist, it's a pretty cruddy
rendition, however, I'm happy with it. =)
Capo at the 2nd fret.
Just the basic cords:
C X32010
Am X02210
Em 022000
[F]   [133211]       It starts with a strum of the chords, in the order C-Am-Em-F, a little bit
after she starts with the Doo-doo-doo-doots. ^_^
Shortly after, you go to the picking, I find it sorta sounds like:
  [C]                           [Am]                    [Em]                                     
e-0------0-------0----0------0------0-------0----0------0-------0----
B---1------1---1---1----1------1------1---1---1----0------0---0---0--
G-----0------0------------2------2------2------------0------0--------
D--------------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

  [F]                                                                                   
e-1------------------------------------------------------------------
B---1----------------------------------------------------------------
G-----2-0h2p0-0h2p0--------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

... and so on. You might find it works better some other way, but this way
sounds fine. Just follow along with the previous version of this song,
above.
Good Luck, and happy playing.

Well, I'm not a expert, but it seems to me that the apaggio to this song is:
  [C]                           [Am]                      [Em]                                  
e------------------------------------------------------------------------
B---1------1-----1-----1------1-----1----1----1------0----0----0----0----
G-----0------0-----0-----0------2-----2----2----2------0----0----0----0--
D-------2------2-----2-----2------2-----2----2----2------2----2----2---2-
A---3-------------------------0------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------0-------------------

  [G]                                                                                   
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------
B--0--------------------------------------------------------------------
G----0------------------------------------------------------------------
D------0----0/2/0-0/2/0-------------------------------------------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------------------
E--2--------------------------------------------------------------------

And then the rest of the song is pice of cake.
By the way some people put some really bad transcriptions on here from time
to time, so don't post something you're not sure about.

Hi!
This is my version of intro to the album version of "Ode to my family" by
the Cranberries. The previously posted versions of the intro haven?t been
working satisfactory for me, and when i watched the MTV-consert
"Unplugged", I saw that they played it differently. This is what i saw and
worked out:
intro to "Ode to my family" by the Cranberries, album version
capo on 2nd fret
the striking order to each of the strings can be found in a couple of the
other submitted tabs.
relative to the capo
e----------------------------------
B-2---2---2---3--------------------
G--2---2---1---2-------------------
D---2---4---2---2--2h4-2-2h4-2-(2)-
A----------------------------------
E----------------------------------
