Bled White  Elliott Smith


This is one of my favorite songs, very simple and fun to play.
RIP Elliott Smith
Tuning:Standard/Low to High EADGBe
Chords Used:
[G1] [D5] [Em5] [Em1] [G2] [Em2] [C] [C5]  

Ok, here's how he plays the little sliding thing after strumming the G1 for a while.

For that little riff/chord progressions, I'm writing it as Fig 1 so as to make
writing this tab easier, and easier to read.
G1 Fig 1
I'm a color reporter (Gross city on the 409)
G1 Fig 1
But the city's been bled white (White city on the yellow line)
G1 Fig 1
And the doctors orders (Drinking till destruction is just a waste of time)
G1 Fig 1 Fig 1
Drinks all night, to take away this curse, but it makes me feel much worse.
[G2]Bled whi.[Em2]....ite
G1 Fig 1
So I wait for the F-Train (White city on the yellow line)
G1 Fig 1
And connect through a friend of mine (White city to a friend of mine)
G1 Fig 1
To a yesterday dream (Yesterday dream is just a waste of time)
G1 Fig 1 Fig 1
Because I'll have to be high, to drag the sunset down, and paint this paling town
[G2]Bled whi..[Em2]...ite
[G2]So here he comes with the blank expression
[Em]Especially for me because he knows [G2]I feel the same
[G2]Because happy and sad come in quick succession
[Em2]I'm never going to become [G2]what you became
G1 Fig 1
Don't you dare disturb me (Don't complicate my peace of mind)
G1 Fig 1
While I'm balancing my past (Don't complicate my peace of mind)
G1 Fig 1
Because you can't help or hurt me (Fading me baby is just a wast of time)
G1 Fig 1
Like it already has, I may not seem quite right
Fig 1
But I'm not f**ked, not quite
[G2]Bled whi..[Em2]...ite
[G2]Bled whi..[Em2]...ite
