Baby Britain  Elliott Smith

[Em7]baby britain feels the b[Am7]est
[G]floating over a[C] sea of vodka
[Em7]separated from the [Am7]rest
[G]fights problems with[C] bigger problems
[Em7]sees the ocean fall and [Am7]rise
[G]counts the waves that some[C]how didn't hit her
[Em7]water pouring from her [Am7]eyes
[G]alcoholic and[C] very bitter


for [Em]som[Em/G]eone [Em/A]half [Em/B]as   s[C]mart
you'd [Em]be [Em/G]  a   [Em/A]work  [Em/B]of    [C]art
you [Em]put [Em/G]your-[Em/A]self [Em/B] a-  [C]pa[G/B]rt
[Am]and i can't help until[C] you start

Verse 2:

[Em7]we knocked another couple b[Am7]ack
[G]the dead soliders lined [C]up on the table
[Em7]still prepared for an at[Am7]tack
[G]they didn't know they'd been[C] disabled
[Em7]felt a wave a rush of b[Am7]lood
[G]you won't be happy til[C] the bottle's broken
[Em7]and you're out swimming in the [Am7]flood
[G]you kept back kept[C] unspoken

Repeat chorus


[C]you got a look in your [A/C#]eye
when you're saying good[D]bye
like you wanna say [B/D#]hi


Em Em/G Em/A Em/B C (3X)
[G/B]    [Am]    [C]                             
Verse 3:

[Em7]the light was on but it was [Am7]dim
[G]revolver's been[C] turned over
[Em7]and now it's ready once a[Am7]gain
[G]the radio was playing [C]crimson and clover
[Em7]london bridge is safe and [Am7]sound
[G]no matter what you keep[C] repeating
[Em7]nothing's gonna drag me [Am7]down
[G]to a death that's [C]not worth cheating

Repeat chorus 2X

For the chorus part, all you are doing is playing Em7 with an ascending
bass line that looks like this when tabbed out:
