Song: Ahead Of The Curve
Artist: Monsters of Folk
Tabbed by: UsingThisName
Capo on the 2nd fret
This is a simple song to play. The rhythm and timing are very intuitive, and can
be easily figured out by listening to the song.
The verses and choruses are played the same way every time. I fully laid out the
first verse as an example, and for the second verse I only included the chords to
give a succinct visual.
I apologies if I overcomplicated anything.
Enjoy!

I got happiness that I can't maintain so beginner's luck
[G]I had shoes to[Em] fill
[G]walkin' barefo[Em]ot now.
[G]Can't tell nor[Em]th from south
[C]but no split hairs gon[D]na get me down.
CHORUS
[C]I'm stayin' above the [G]flat line
[C]I'm ahead of the cur[G]ve.
[C]Take a piece of the sunsh[G]ine with me
[Am]on a red eye to ano[D]ther world
[C]It isn't any [G]trouble
[C]if you wanna come w[G]ith me.
[C]I know it's out of the[G] question, honey
[Am]but I sure could use th[D]e company
[C]and a place to be. G
VERSE
Now the sky is pink
rooftop swimmin' pool.
I'm not care free, no
I'm free to care
I just never do.
All the bags are checked
and the reasons why.
Yesterday lingers on
that's the peace you can keep when you say goodbye.
CHORUS
You can get what you want now
knock it out of the park.
Bury it by the river
Easy, there's a search party but it's gettin' dark.
I won't hold you to nothin'
I wanna make that plane.
Probably end up a stranger, crazy
buy I'm still hoping there's another way
and a place to stay
BRIDGE
[Em]What a sc[D]ene has [C]got you s[G]entimental
[C]when the night comes, [Am]when the night comes [D]loose.
[Em]All the thin[D]gs you've put[C] up on t[G]he mantle
[C]what a shame. [Am]What a shame.
[D]It's old news
CHORUS
I'm stayin' above the flat line
I'm ahead of the curve.
Take a piece of the sunshine with me
on an all night drive to another world
You can get what you want now
knock it out of the park.
Probably end up a drifter, lonely
but I'm still hoping for a change of heart
and a place to start.
