Watch The World Tab

   
hi its colin o., i have seen other versions for watch the world and they're fine
exept there's two guitars playing. tom wrote and recorded all the lyrics, guitar,
and bass, but dave (the other guitarist) plays the dominant guitar live
i think this is pretty good. (we''l call what dave plays live guitar 1 and what
tom plays guitar 2) i kind of put the guitars in line to show when and what
they're playing at the same time

Well thats all the solo may need a little work. at the end he does some
freaky bending stuff which isn't worth or even trying to tab

I know u didn't come for the lyrics but I'll add them in anyways


I watched the smoke
As it grew darker
And blew up through the roof
I watched the fed
And saw them panic
As the fire grew

I saw Virginia
Get rid of Langley
And its secrets, too
I held your hand
And sat there knowing
That we'd make it through

I saw this man
Dispose of hunger
And soap operas, too
I saw this field
That grew perfection
Full of things you do

I saw this box
Get rid of heartache
And cure cancer, too
When I awoke
I sat there hoping
This is what we'll do

If we can
We will leave
A letter and this song
For you
And we'll write
Once a day
And put it through the sea
To you

We'll regret
All those things 
we thought of but didn't ever do

If we can
We will leave
A letter and this song
For you
And we'll write
Once a day
And put it through the sea
To you

We'll regret
All those things 
we thought of but didn't ever do
When the sky
Seems too clear
Who will then be left
But a few
Me and you
