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:
 DD/FG
Wiped out in the city slick
 EmG7C
Another sick rock 'n roller acting like a
dick
 B7
Needin' cash
 EmG7C
 Burnin' through the  
trash
 GD/F#
That piles up in this place
F¿
 AmAm/GF
 And fills up behind my empty face
 FA7sus4A7
Full of things that 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:

 EGm
 Well can't you                 
just leave me alone
 Gm
You've already 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
