...KATE... by Ben Folds Five

*from 'Whatever And Ever Amen' (1997)*
(modified from Brent Ritchey's original tab)
(Original Key: F)
Verse 1:
She plays '[D]Wipeout' on the drums,
The [Dmaj7]squirrels and the birds come,
[Em] Gather round to sing the guitar.
Oh [Gmaj7]I, have you got nothing to [D]say?
Verse 2:
When all [D]words fail she speaks,
Her [Dmaj7]mix tapes a masterpiece,
[Em] Walks through the garden,
So the roses can see,
Oh [Gmaj7]I, have you got nothing to [D]say?
Chorus 1:
And you can [F#m7]see,
The [F7]daisies in her [Em7]footsteps.
Dande-[G6]lions, butter-[Edim]flies,
I wanna be:
[D] Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate.
Verse 3:
Every-[D]day she wears the same thing,
I [Dmaj7]think she smokes pot,
She's [Em]everything I want,
She's everything I'm not.
Oh [Gmaj7]I, have you got nothing to [D]say?
Chorus 1:
She never gets [F#m7]wet,
She [F7]smiles and it's a [Em7]rainbow,
And she [G6]speaks and she [Edim]breathes,
I wanna be [D]Kate.
Middle 8:
[Am7] Down by the [Gmaj7]Rosemary and Cameron,
[Gm7] She hands out The Bhagavad [Fmaj7]Gita.
[Fm7] I see her around every [Bb7]couple days,
[Em7] I wanna meet her so [Edim]I can say;
Hey [D]Kate.[Gm]
[D] Ooh la la la, [Dmaj7]ooh la la la,
[Em] Ooh la la la, la.[Gmaj7] [D]
[D] Ooh la la la, [Dmaj7]ooh la la la,
[Em] Ooh la la la, la.[Gmaj7] [D]
Chorus 2:
She never gets [F#m7]wet,
She [F7]smiles and it's a [Em7]rainbow,
You can [G6]see,
I wanna, [Edim]wanna, wanna, wanna be...
[D] Kate, Kate, Kate,
[Gm] Na na,
[D] Kate, Kate,
Kate, Kate,
[Gm] Na na na na na na.
