Subject: TAB: 'The Freshmen' by 'The Verve Pipe'
The Freshmen - The Verve Pipe
- CHANGE FONT SIZE (PT. 8) AND USE A FIXED-WIDTH FONT -
Tabbed by: Steve Jang - I also tabbed out "Don't Speak" by No Doubt
I included the lyrics so that it would be easy to denote which riff to
play
and the Guitar 2 Fills. Not everything in the song follows this tab
EXACTLY,
so improvise a little and listen to the song for the very minor parts.

Intro: (Riff 1. 2X w/ Fill 1. and Fill 2. the 2nd time)
Verse 1: (Riff 1.)
When I was young I knew everything
And she a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I'm guilt-stricken, sobbing with my head on the floor
Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no
Pre-Chorus: (Riff 2.)
I can't be held responsible, 'cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible, she fell in love in the first place
Chorus: (Riff 3.)
For the life of me I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise, and we'd never compromise
For the life of me I can not believe
We'd ever die for these sins, we were merely freshmen (Fill 1. and Fill
2.)
Verse 2: (Riff 1.)
My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
His girl took a week's worth of Valium and slept
And now he's guilt-stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he says
Pre-Chorus (Riff 2. w/ Fill 3. 4X)
Chorus (Riff 3. w/ Fill 3. 4X at the end)
Verse 3: (Riff 3.)
We've tried to wash our hands of all of this
We never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we're guilt-stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip, we'd say
Pre-chorus (Riff 2. w/ Fill 3. 4X)
Chorus (2X - Riff 3.)
Outro (Riff 1. 2X w/ Fill 1. and 2. played 2X)
