Safer On The Outside Tab

   
Author/Artist: American Hi-Fi
Title: Safer on the Outside
Tabber: Andrew Biles (from the American Hi-Fi book)

To play this exactly, you really need three guitars playing, so I've put
all the parts down incase you have got three guitarists available.
The order is pretty simple so it's easy to work out.
On the outro though you'll notice it says 'x2 1/2' on the first piece,
this mean you go from the Bb5 - F5, then to the last section with the
three guitars tabbed together.

Drop D - D, A, D, G, B, e

Lyrics (www.lyricsdomain.com):

i'm no good
i feel too small
something's gonna burn
sink on you
drunken highways
someone take the wheel

[chorus:]
faded in the blackout you left me in
it's safer on the outside
i'm swimming in
this kerosene it's hard to breathe
statics got me down

i can't sleep
i'm disconnected
everything went wrong
and certain stars
are sad and bruised like
someone's cheating heart

[repeat chorus 3x]

got me down, got me down, got me down
safer on the outside, safer on the outside
safer on the outside
