Sick Day
Fountains of Wayne, 1996
Verse I: Start with fade into Am7 - Dsus4-D-Dsus2
[Am7]Check out the girl in the h[Dsus4-D-Dsus2]arbor tunnel
[Am7]Crawling to work, s[Dsus4-D-Dsus2]ix feet under
And the [C]day has barely b[G]egun
c G D
They're all chewing gum and laughing
At the v[Am7]oice of the cracklin [Dsus4-D-Dsus2]radio station
[Am7]Lead us not in[Dsus4-D-Dsus2]to Penn Station
And the b[C]est parts just b[G]egun
We're a[C]ll becoming o[G]ne, a[D]gain
Am7 Em Am7 [C?]
And she's making the scene with her coffee and cream
And the copy m[G]achines not w[D]orking
Am7 Em Am7 [C?]
She's a hell of a girl, she's alone in the world
And she likes to say `H[G]ey good l[D]ookin'
[Am7]She's on her w[D]ay
[Am7]She's taking a s[D]ick day
Bb - C [?]
Am7 - Dsus4-D-Dsus2 [2x]
Verse II:
And here is the man pushing paper past her
Thinks of ways to make the day go faster
But the day goes on and on
He dreams of his lawn and all about
The pretty careerist the next cube over
The fat secretary the lunch-time lover
Till the Path train finally comes
The platforms full of bums again
Chorus II [same as I]
Solo over verse chords
Chorus III
And she's taking her time, as she's tossing a dime
At the man in the cardboard coffin
It doesn't have to be fine, she's ahead of the line
And doesn't have to be here too often
She's making a play
Bb - C - G [let ring, and false end]
She's taking a sick day soon
Drum fill and:
Fade out over Am7 - D
OK, there's some mistakes/simplifications in this one, but it ought to
get you started.
