spaceboy -- by smashing pumpkins -------- transcribed by Chris Carman (
Finally, an acoustic song! of course, that's excluding Disarm...
This song is actually pretty easy, if you disregard the violin & cello..
Main riff: |--repeat 3x----| ----------------|--------0---------0---------- --0-0--0-0-0-0--|--0-----0---------0---------- --0-0--0-0-0-0--|--0-----0---------0---------- --3/5--5-5/9-9--|--7--10-10--10-10-10--10-10-- --3/5--5-5/9-9--|--7--10-10--10-10-10--10-10-- --1/3--3-3/7-7--|--5--8--8---8--8--8---8--8---
play this main acoustic riff throughout most of the song, or play the chords marked in the lyrics....

I want to go home, I want to go home Cause when a lover aches, that's when a lover breaks
I want to go home, I want to go home...
