Fred Jones Pt Chords

   
Ben Folds -  Fred Jones, Pt 2

This is my first tab so I wanted to do it right.  But don't worry 
this tab is correct unlike most peoples first tabs.  I understand 
that you may not know some of the chords below but you should 
seriously consider learning them.  I listed some of the less common 
ones.  If there's anything wrong with the tab or anything you want me
to tab out email me at chris2002_06@hotmail.com

VERSE/CHORUS 1

C Am Em G x2 

C Am Em G x2  
Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark,
there's an awkward young shadow who waits in the hall.
Am F  x2
Yeah, he's cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes;
C G
things that remind him that life has been good.
F Dm7 C G
Twenty-five years, he's worked at the paper,
the man's here to take him downstairs;

C F G C
and "I'm sorry, Mr. Jones, it's time"


VERSE/CHORUS 2

C Am Em G x2 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/f/folds_ben/fred_jones_pt_crd.html ]
C Am Em G x2 
There was no party, and there were no songs,
'cause today's just a day like the day that he started,
Am F  x2
and no one is left here who knows his first name, 
C G
and life barrels on like a runaway train
F Dm7 C G
where the passengers change, but they don't change anything
you get off someone else can get on

C F G C
and "I'm sorry, Mr. Jones, it's time"

C Am Em G x2


BRIDGE (with John Mcrae)

Am Em
Street light shines through the shades,
F C G 
casting lines on the floor, and lines on his face
F C
he reflects on the day.


(Piano Solo)
Am Em x4
F Am 
D Dsus2 D


VERSE/CHORUS 3

C Am Em G x2 
Fred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
projecting some slides onto a plain white 
Am F x2
canvas and traces it, fills in the spaces.
C G
He turns off the slides, and it doesn't look right.
F Dm7 C G
Yeah, and all of these bastards have taken his place,
he's forgotten but not yet gone.

C F G x3
and "I'm sorry, Mr. Jones...
and "I'm sorry, Mr. Jones...
and "I'm sorry, Mr. Jones, it's time"
(end on C chord)


Oh yeah, if theres any good songs to learn on the guitar please email
 me because I'm kind of in a rut right now.
