Play the C Chord  Starflyer 59

Author/Artist: Starflyer 59
Title: Play the C Chord
Album: Everybody Makes Mistakes

Written by Jason Martin / Some Blue Collar Songs (ASCAP)
(P) & (C) 1999 Tooth and Nail Records
Note, of course, that this is appoximate and must be made better by he/she
who is holding the guitar--listen to the record and you'll get the idea.
Notice also that this is Starflyer, and thus all strings are tuned down half
a step, which is important if playing with the record.
Intro (play this a couple times, loosely)

Intro chords can be played on an acoustic as such:
Em Cmaj7 Asus2 G (4x)
(best guess at indecipherable lyrics follow)
Is there t[Em]ime? [Cmaj7] [Asus2]
[G]Feeling the ligh[Em]ts.[Cmaj7] [Asus2]
[G]Putting a so[Em]ng to lif[Cmaj7]e,[Asus2]
[G]feeling the[Em] old tim[Cmaj7]e.[Asus2]

And t[G]hese friends and m[Em]ine,[Cmaj7] [Asus2]
[G]who wrote the pri[Em]ze?[Cmaj7] [Asus2]
And [G]we write the s[Em]ongs you l[Cmaj7]ike[Asus2]
[G]in half the tim[Em]e.[Cmaj7] [Asus2] [G]
[G] Something's wr[D]ong, it fixed the o[Am]ld mess.[Am]
Just p[C]lay the [G]C Chord [D] like it's som[Am]ething.[Am]
[C]Something's [G]wrong, [D] it fixed the o[Am]ld mess.[Am]
Just p[C]lay the [G]C Chord [D] like it's som[Am]ething,
l[G]ike it's so[Am]mething.

And happily, it's all repeated from there. The second verse is really just
the second half of the first verse, and once again the electric hitting root
of the chord, open b string, root of the chord, open b string jumps in half
way through. Chorus is the same. Same chord progression throughout the
"Like it's something you can see" bit, go wild. Cheers! Anyone with more
Starflyer stuff, especially off Everybody Makes Mistakes or Fashion Focus
feel free to feed me. Or Denison Marrs. Or Pedro the Lion.
