Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Looking Over My Shoulder  Elliott Smith

--------------------------



--------------------------

[As]usual there are a couple of guitars here, one playing
chords and one
establishing the melody. I've just lumped
them together so you can play it
by yourself. So the chords
are approximately the actual chord he's playing
combined
with the melody note.

F¿ - 1x0101

Intro: D DM7 Gsus4 G Bb F A7/E
[D]                                     
Verse:
Wiped o[D]ut in the city[D/F] sli[G]ck
Another si[Em]ck rock 'n rol[G7]ler act[C]ing like a
dick
Needin' [B7]cash
[Em]Burnin' [G7]through the [C]
trash
That [G]piles up in this [D/F#]place
F¿
[Am]And fills[Am/G] up b[F]ehind my empty face
Full [F]of t[A7sus4]hings th[A7]at I'm not to do

Chorus (repeat intro
progression):

You come over with all of your friends
And all their opinions
I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my shoulder
Bookin' away with
nowhere to go

Verse:

I run down to the corner lot
It's forty-five past
two
I almost forgot to show
Got a date to make with Mr. so 'n so
After
which
I won't care when you all start to bitch
And moan about bein'
alone

Chorus:

You come over with all of your friends
And all their
opinions I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my shoulder
Bookin' away
with nowhere to go

Bridge:

[E]Well can't you                [Gm]
just leave me alone
You've alre[Gm]ady thrown all the sticks and stones you had to
send my way
Well can't you just leave it at that
And spare us both the
bother cause I just bounce back
Anyway

Verse:

I got nothin' that I want
to do
More than make another sonnet fuck you to play
Whenever you make my
life clichŽ
So to fit in some little box with the all the labeled shit
You
would say to keep confusion away

Chorus:

You come over with all of your
friends
And all their opinions I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my
shoulder
Bookin' away with nowhere to go

You come over with all of your
friends
And all their opinions I don't want to know
And I'm looking over my
shoulder
Bookin' away
