This song is in 4,4 timing.
The intro, although may sound daunting, is piss really.
I watched Chris play it on the weekend, so I knew where
to play the lead, and then I figured it from there...so there !!

Military Strongmen - Jebediah
hurl abuse by way of cc (auto@labyrinth.net.au) or daniel
(ceawa@iinet.net.au)... thanks be to andrew loch for corrections.. yup
andrew.. now everyone knows you?re a closet jebediah fan...
The basic format for any Jebediah song is a recurring riff over some power
chords. So here?s the riff...
 
 e------------------------|
 B--4---------------------|
 G----5------5-----5------|
 D------4-6----4-6--------|
 A------------------------|
 E------------------------|

This is played over a few times before the rest of the band kick in and
it?s played during the chorus too.
Ok.. and here?s the chord progression:
[Bb/F] [C#] [G#] [F#]  
 
 e--1--|--4--|--4--|--2--|--|
 B--1--|--4--|--4--|--2--|--|
 G--3--|--6--|--5--|--3--|--|
 D--3--|--6--|--6--|--4--|--|
 A--1--|--4--|--6--|--4--|--|
 E--1--|--4--|--4--|--2--|--|

That?s played for the verse and the chorus
VERSE
I'm on parade, you don't say
Why can't you see that
Keeping my feelings at bay
Why can't you see that, when
CHORUS
When you're around
You just get me down
I'm better off without you
VERSE
All of the years add up to
Why can't you see that
Something has happened to you
Why can't you see that, when
CHORUS
[G#] It's no[F#]t me
[G#] It [F#]can't be
[G#] I'd ra[F#]ther leav[Bb]e
[G#] Its ge[F#]tting hard
[G#] To [F#]be a part
[G#] Of [F#]what is ar[Bb]ound
[C#] [G#] [Bb] [C#]  
[C#]Is this the situatio[G#]n of t[Bb]he time[C#]?
[C#]If so then yo[G#]u can have [Bb]yours I want mine[C#]
[C#]I know there's some[G#]thing better y[Bb]ou could be[C#]
[C#]Now I am past cari[G#]ng comp[Bb]letely[C#]
