here it is... lyrics and all...
i tried my best to line up all the chords with the words where the chord
changes occur, but you'll get the best idea by listening to the song...
the chords are tabbed out at the end of the tab... so....
Santa Monica

attempt at rhythm-
if you can't pick it up from the song, here's a valiant attempt..
G5 G5 x x x x G5 G5 G5/E G5 G5 x x x x
(repeat.. the x's represent muting the strings and stumming)
same basic strumming technique throughout the rest of the song
** all verses use the same progression as in verse I
*** all choruses use the same progression as in the first chorus..
Verse I -
I am still living with yo[G5]ur ghos[G5/E]t[G5]
Lonely [G5/E]and dreaming o[G5]f the wes[G5/E]t coas[G5]t
I don't wan[G5/E]t to be your downtim[D5]e[E5] [C5]
I don't[C5] want [D5]to be yo[G5]ur stupid game
Verse II-
With my big black boots and an old suitcase
I do believe I'll find myself a new place
I don't want to be the bad guy
I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to see some palm trees
Go and try to shake away this disease
We can live beside th[C5]e ocean
[C5]Leave the fire[D5] behind[G5]
[G5]Swim out past the[E5] breake[D5]rs
[D5]Watch the wo[C5]rld die[G5]
Verse III-
I am still dreaming of your face
Hungry and hollow for all the things you took away
I don't want to be your good time
I don't want to be your fall-back crutch anymore
Verse IV-
I'll walk right out into a brand new day
Insane and rising in my own weird way
I don't want to be the bad guy
I don't want to do your sleepwalk dance anymore
I just want to feel some sunshine
I just want to find some place to be alone
We can live beside the ocean
Leave the fire behind
Swim out past the breakers
And watch the world die
