Holiday Acoustic - The Get Up Kids
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Sean Hummer

Someone requested that I tab this song into an acoustic version so I gave it a
shot. I don't know that The Get Up Kids have ever actually played this song
acoustically but these chords can also be used for the rhythm to the electric
version.
Beneath the chords I included a tab of how to play this acoustically with my
version of the lead/melody included in the rhythm chords.
Tuning: Standard
Chords used:
E - 022100
C#m - x46654
[G#m]A - [-] [466444]x02220
[F#m]B - [-] [244222]x24442
[E]What became of everyone I u[C#m]sed to know?
[G#m]Where did our respectable con[A]victions go?
[E]Your words donít match the story that your [C#m]actions show
[G#m] But what do I kno[A]w?
[F#m] Iím sure you canít help [G#m]but reme[A]mbering
[C#m]I thought that youíd be [B]one not to for[A]get
[C#m]Rememberingís not [B]helping you [A]yet
Say [E]goodnight
Mean [C#m]goodbye
I know you [A]think my life will s[B]top when youíre a[C#m]way[E]
[A]Maybe I can [B]see you on
[E]Holidays, [C#m]worlds away
[A]Iíve never forg[B]otten all our [C#m]yesterdays[E]
Iím [A]lucky if weíre [B]speaking on the
[E]Holidays
[C#m] [G#m] [A]  
[E]The evidence presents itself ac[C#m]cusingly
Your [G#m]absence speaking everything you [A]think of me
[E]Now that I am faced with oppor[C#m]tunity
[G#m] Youíre not remember[A]ing
[F#m] Iím not asking [G#m]you [A]anyway
[C#m]And even if you [B]ever could cave [A]in
I [C#m]wouldnít know [B]where to be[A]gin

This is another version I created on acoustic that is very similar to the one
above except it includes some lead/melody for those wishing for an acoustic
version that sounds more like the album.
