Brian Wilson

Barenaked Ladies

 GDAm7G
 Drove downtown in the rain, 9:30 on a Tuesday night
 DBm7Am7
 Just to check out the late night record shop
 GDAm7
 Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane
 GDBm7Am7
 But when I'm surrounded I just can't stah-op

(This progression continues throughout the slow intro)

It's a matter of instinct, it's a matter of conditioning, a matter of fact
You can call me Pavlov's dog
Ring a bell and I'll salivate, well how'd you like that
Dr. Landy tell me you're not just a pedagogue, 'cause right now I'm

CHORUS:

 GDAm7
 Lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did
 GDEmEm/CEm/C#Em/C
 Well I'm, lying in bed just like Brian Wilson did           

(Progression for the verse is the same as intro. Just listen to the song
to get the proper rythym and tempo)
Well I'm lying here, just staring at the ceiling tiles
And I'm thinking about, whoa what to think about
Just listening and relistening to smiley smile
And I'm wondering if this is some kind of creative doubt, because I'm

CHORUS

 Am7DFEm
 And if you wanna find me I'll be   out in the sandbox
 Am7DGFAm7
 Just wondering where the hell all the love has gah-ah-ahn
 DFEmAm7
 Playing my guitar and building castles in the sun, whoa-whoa-oh-oh
 DG
 And singing fun, fun, fun

CHORUS

 AmE7AmE7Am
 I had a dream that I was three hundred pounds
 E7AmE7Am
 And though I was very heavy I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground

(Pick up the rythym at this point)
 E7AmE7
 I floated 'til I couldn't see the ground
 AmE7
 Somebody help me (I couldn't see the ground)
 AmE7
 Somebody help me (I couldn't see the ground)
 AmE7
 Somebody help meeeeee, because I'm

CHORUS

(With lots of angst, repeat intro)
 GDAm7G
 Drove downtown in the ray-ee-ain, 9:30 on a Tuesday night
 DBm7Am7G
 Just to check out the late night record shop (late night record shop)
 DAm7
 Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, or call it insane (whoa-oh)
 GDBm7Cmaj7
 'Cause when I'm surrounded I just can't stah-ah-ah-p

follows:
 EmEm/CEm/C#Em/C

Am Am7 Bm7 Cmaj7 D E7 Em Em/C Em/C# F G
