Shooting Star  Elliott Smith

Hi, first of all I want to say that I took the chords from the other tab that is
on the site, but I made a few changes using some videos of Elliott performing the
song live.
"weird" chords:
C#m6: x42350
D: x54030
D#6 (just play this once quick between D and Em): x6x5xxx
Em: x97000
C/G: 332010
Fmaj7: x33210
Em*: 022000
D/F#: 2x0230
Note: On the Am /G thing Elliott puts his pinky on the 6th string 3rd fret for
a second and then he goes back to the regular Am
[C]You'll make the[C#m6] scene like you[D] alw[D#6]ays d[Em]o
[C]Going up[C#m6] stream, down the [D]aven[D#6]ue[Em]
[C]To fuck some [C#m6]trophy boy that you'll w[D]in tonight[D#6] at the b[Em]ar
[C/G]So ba[G]d, so f[Am]ar
You make him[Fmaj7] sad shooting[C] star
When it was me I was momentarily proud
Drunk of dreams now I'm glad I didn't say out loud
You said you'd be for real but I don't believe that you are
[C/G]So ba[G]d, so [Am]far
Fmaj7 Am Em*
You make me sad shooting star
[Dm]You're distant a[G]nd cold and[C] a sight[/B] to [Am]behold
[Am]Every[/G]body just [F]sighs
[Dm]But no one g[G]ets on w[C]ith [/B]you v[Am]ery long
[Am]Cos you don't feel[/G] bad when you[D/F#] lie[F]
I'm going to sleep now going back to find square one
Square two be where I can deal with the shit you've just done
It won't be soon, say the least it's gonna be hard
[C/G]So ba[G]d, so [Am]far
Your love is[Fmaj7] sad shooting[Am] star
Your love is[Fmaj7] sad shooting[C] star
