Balance Beam by Blue October
Album: Consent to Treatment
this is my first tab. yada yada yada. It's about 80% correct. sounds good to me. yada yada yada.
rhythm: hear the song, and you can figure it out
instrument: acoustic guitar. if you figure out the violin and electric guitar parts, then post them.
C: x 3 2 0 1 0
C7?: x 3 2 0 1 3
F: x x 3 2 1 1
G*: x 2 0 0 3 x
note: you could replace C7 with...
G: 3 2 0 0 3 3
intro and verse have the same chord progression:
C, C7, F, C, G*
the C7 and F are strummed somewhere around where i put the commas (,) in the verses
as far as the chorus goes, the electric guitar kinda overpowers the acoustic, but i think it is:
C, F, C, G*, F
C, F, C, G*

I haven't been quite the same, so sure the story of my life would never change.
But in a bright eyed way, oh, i rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song that i'm about to sing.
Cause it's about a girl, that i hardly even know
So this is not another love song, just a list of things that i should know and everyone should know that
One, you gotta take it kinda slowly
Two, you gotta hurry up and make your move
Three, you gotta tell her that she's pretty
Four, you gotta be the perfect gentleman
you shake the wall you gotta make it bend, yeah
you gotta show her that she's the balance beam and i keep fallin all around her fairy tale
oh, her fairy tale
We took a walk in the rain, i suggested she confessed there's a heart nearby to cast that shade, oh
Stay cool but i'm giddy like a schoolboy, you gotta handle with care this is not a toy
Then gradually we touch, although our clothes were wet we sat and smiled i never thought i'd smiled so much oh
The first kiss always says the most
i wanna sing to you
and everyone should know that
oh, oh, oh
some kinda fairy tale, some kinda fairy tale, and everyone should know that
