ok, someone emailed me to tab this song out, so here it is. This is one mad song. Fiddle
with the chords yourself if you want it to sound more like the album version, but it
doesnt really matter that much - its more in the singing anyways! here it goes:
 
 D                                               G
  I remember well the smell of tequila
 D                                                   F#
 One bed, one bath, two months with Steph
            G
 Drinkin' up the sunrise
 A
 Then sleep till eight at night
 D                                          G
 I had a ten day birthday till Thanksgiving
 D                                       F#
 We burnt the bird and hit the road
           G        A                                 D
 Blur in stereo, sonic bookmarks and bad scenes
                    F#        B           A           G              A
 But not a dull moment, I barely miss living in Los Angeles
 D                                       G
 Only took a week to start the warfare
 D                                 F#   (timing here is tricky)
 Eccentric neighbors on welfare
            G                                       A
 The turntable spun to the beat of pounding on the walls
 D5                                          G5
 We'd sink another drink with Billy Idol
 D                                              F#
 Have sloppy sex on the living room floor
 G                                             A
 A whirlwind of simple pleasure principal
                        D
 Principles are gone
                     F#
 It's not a dull moment
  B         A           G                   A           B5
 I barely miss living in that selfish bliss with Steph
          G5                   D5            A5
 And I always have the past to be warned
 B5      G5                    D5                 A5
 And I always knew the last laugh was more
 C5           A                        G                E5
 And I can taste the gold ring tarnish in my mouth
                   C5  D5                   G    Gsus4
 And I need a drink to wash it out
                    B
 It's not a dull moment
 E5          D5          C5                  D5
 I barely miss living in that state of filth
        G5
 So I cleaned the yard, the yard, the yard
 B5                                           E5
 Mow the lawn, scrub the stained rug
      D5        C5           D5                G  (A number of times)
 So what? It's safe and sound I have found
 
There it is! I've tried to put the chords where they come in above the words. I'm not
100% sure about this section:
 C5           A                        G                E5
 And I can taste the gold ring tarnish in my mouth
                   C5  D5                   G    Gsus4
 And I need a drink to wash it out
 
 but i tried heaps of different ways and this generally sounded the best and
 most spot on. damn joey cape and his far superior skills. also, lots of the
 notes are played on their higher octave (ie 8 frets up on the above string)
 but it dont really matter unless u got 2 guitars and a bass playing it). If you've
seen these guys live, send me an email telling me what they were like. would b greatly
appreciated!
