higher notes...

Anyways, the actual song...

(guitar and vocals start)

 B5G#5
 old world underground, where are you now?
 G5D5F#maj
subtract my age from the mileage on my speeding heart, credit cards,
 B5G#5
 accelerate, accumulate, looked for you downtown
 G5
wound up in a movie with no story
 D5F#maj
 now it's late, and you are nowhere to be found

hesitation's always mine
hesitate outside the times
with all i don't say, with all i don't do
i'm sending you

invitations to
hesitate to...

 B5G#5G5
 every ten-year-old enemy soldier thinks
 D5F#5
falling bombs are shooting stars sometimes but she doesn't make wishes on them
when she wishes, she wishes for less ways
to wish for, more ways to work toward it
ten-year-old enemy soldier thinks
our falling bombs are her shooting stars...

 BminGmajF#maj
 hesitation's always mine

(Bass line comes in)
hesitate outside the times

oh, call me or drop me a line,

(First two stanza's from bassline)
 bminG
say you've been with me
 BminG
say you've been with me

(Back to full Bassline)
 BminGF#maj
say you've been with me this whole time
 B5G#5
 old world underground, i never knew you
 G5D5F#5D5
but i've seen your face everywhere there was a farm, before we tore the small town down

(To Outro:)
 F#5B5
 multiply, divide...

(solo is here over the outro)

B5 - G#5 - G5 - D5 F#5-|
B5 - G#5 - G5 - D5 F#5-|

D5 - F#5 (till the end)

Veriosn 2

Here are the chords used:
*** I added stuff in brackets and moved it 'round a bit

B G# D D F# G G Bmin Bmin F#maj *** Emaj Emin
e|-(0)(4)-----0-(0)--3--3---2----7------2----| ---0----0---|
B|-(0)(4)-----3-(0)--3--3---3----7------2----| ---0----0---|
G|--4-(4)--7--2-(3)--0--4---4----7------3----| ---1----0---|
D|--4--6---7--0--4---0--5---4----9------4----| ---2----2---|
A|--2--6---5--0--4---2--5---2----9------4----| ---2----2---|
E|-----4--(5)----2---3--3---x----7------2----| ---0----0---|


*** Stuff in brackets is optional I guess. During the intro I strum
the lower (deeper) notes 3 times, then strum all of them on the 4th
strum. I love the sound of the F# with the high open notes. heh!
I don't think this is totally accurate, (I think he players the
chords higher up on the neck) but it's good enough for me :)

INTRO (guitar and vocals start)

 BEmaj
 old world underground, where are you now?
 EminDF#maj
subtract my age from the mileage on my speeding heart, credit cards,

 BG#
 accelerate, accumulate, looked for you downtown
 EminG

 DF#maj
 now it's late, and you are nowhere to be found

VERSE Bass line:

*** He's got this part right for the most part I think.
Might be a note different or something, but I usually just
strum full chords here anyways. It's much easier to sing
along with for me. But that's me. I'm going to split them up
into sections (parts), add a section he missed, and input
easier notes to hit if you don't like stretching your fingers
(like me). You can hit these notes instead of the ones
below them. These notes will be in brackets of course.

Part1
