Dying in New Brunswick  Thursday

BAND: Thursday
DISC: Waiting
okay, this song has a quirky bassline and two clever guitars....i can give the basic
chord structure and some of the interesting guitaring but what Thursday seems to do
is imply a chord progression and have both guitars and the bass just do interesting
stuff around it. it sounds like there's a lot going on in this song and i'm giving
you what it is based on.
Drop D
intro/verse: Riff 1:

[D5] you told me on your birthday all the things that
[B5]this place had [A5]done to [D5]you
and in the streets you walk, you hide your face cause
[B5]they don't be[A5]lieve it's [G5]true
they [B5]say it doesn't [A5]happen that [G5]often
but it's [B5]happening [A5]right now

B5 A5 G5 (riff 3)
the streets are still paved with hate

"no there
[B5]aren't enough love [A5]songs in the sky"
[D5] You're counting down the days till you can say
[B5]"bye bye [A5]city, bye-[D5]bye"
[D5] You're walking down on Union, you see the roads and
[B5]know they're a [A5]part of [G5]you.
They [B5]say it doesnt [A5]happen that [G5]often
But it's [B5]happening [A5]right now.

D5 (minor) Bb5

Will you look back on this night
As the day that ruined your life.
Will you look back on these city streets and say,
"Oh, God, where are you?"
In these city streets I hide my face.
I turn away when you look at me
And every night when I try and sleep.
I feel your hands all over my body.
OUTRO: pound away on Dm
you scratched away the street signs and you shot out all the stop lights
you smashed away the buildings, what would you have left?
i love this song. enjoy. disclaimer: it wasn't my fault.
disclaimer: though i also wanted more than friendship,
more than anything i just wanted friendship.
peace, love, rock and roll,
