Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Echoes Myron  Guided By Voices

The guitars are tuned a little sharp on this one, but not enough
to use a capo. Twist your pegs up until that opening G
sounds right.
This is how my aged ears heard the song, but I'm not totally
confident about the chords at the end...sometimes its hard to
hear through that lo-fi production...corrections are welcomed.

A - x02220 D - xx0232
B - x24442 E - 022100
Bm - x24432 Em - 022000

   or so[G]mething like that

   but he's [F]cracked up like the road

   and we're [G]finally he[Em]re   and shit yeah [C]its c[Bm]ool [C]
