"Time"
Blind Melon
from the album Blind Melon
Words by Shannon Hoon
Music by Blind Melon

transcribed by Travis Miguez (tre@unixg.ubc.ca)

Other transcriptions done by me: Still Remains -S.T.P.
			   All the Things I Wasn't - Grapes of Wrath

*Blind Melon riffs are hard to transcribe so I just did the bulk of the song so it sounds good if you play 
on an acoustic guitar.  The end of the song is anybody's guess and I have never heard it done the same 
twice so improvise or just end it on the Am chord.


                    Am                 E
Intro:         (Strumming Pattern)

Repeat Ooooh part

Guitar like Intro Part with the C fill (i.e. the ooooh part)

Am        E
All these people here they won't
leave me alone and we
need a little time to ourselves

And half the reasons why I'm
sketchin all the time
The result of this life in hell

       F     (N.C.)-let F ring
But oh well, I think its time

Riff 1

(Strum Pattern like first 2 bars above but with E in second bar)

Am          E
My faith is falling like the
leaves from a tree
Am          E            C
The pockets both take it away

The sun warms my body as I'm
sitting on a swing watchin'
columbus clouds bring in the rain

       F     (N.C.)-let F ring
But Oh well, I think its time

(Riff 1 four times (timing for words follow chord pattern))
(Am)       (F)        (E)      (Am)......
			its time to  go

Chorus

(1   3   ) (1 2 3 4) - Strumming Pattern
D          A
My mind is playing tricks on
me all the time
D          A             E
To let you know that I am real

And all the worries you build
up inside your soul
The ones that make your world stand still..

(N.C.) - (let E ring)
Mean you can feel

(Riff 1) x 4 -lyric timing as above
That its time to go       (on first time)

Am (strum)
            (Am)  x3 (E)
Base part: -------||-----------------|
           ---0-2-||-----x-----x-----|
           -0-----||-2-2-x-2-2-x-2-2-|
           -------||-----------------|

Are you fed up, are you fed up with me
Do you think that you could do better?

Partly Muted Chords:
(A)         (E)
Five fed up faces with the
itch to kill the king
(A)       (E)           (C)
Blood red sunrise and a breath to air that's clean

I drink from the faucet from the
porch I take a pee.  I
(A)                     (E)           C - loud
look at you through the bushes, where you can't see me

Chorus 2 (Play like chorus 1)

I laugh and slip into
another state of mind
To let you know that I am real

And all the worries that build
up inside your soul
The ones that make your world stand still....

(N.C.)-let E ring
Mean you can feel

(Riff 1)
That its time to go.
