Holiday From Real Chords

   
From the upcoming album "All in Transit" on Maverick Records

Okay, my first tab. I came across this song thanks to sxsw in Austin, Tx. 

I've listened to this song sixty-seven times in two day and I still think it's one of
the coolest songs I've heard in a while. I'm working on the lead guitar part, so email
me if you want it. This tab is close enough for me but if you make any changes or
improvements, please let me know at: Crankedto11again@aol.com or at

Artist: Jack's Mannequin
Title: Holiday from Real
Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

C              G
She thinks I'm much too thin
Am                   C
She asks me if I'm sick
          Am
What's a girl to do 
       C           Am
With friends like this
C            G
She lets me drive her car 
   Am              C
So I can score an eighth
          Am
From the lesbians 
     C
Out west in Venice

C G       Am           C  G
Oh, California in the Summer
C G        Am               C             
Ah, and my hair is growing long
Am     G           Am
F**k yeah, we can live like this


C           G            Am
But if you left it up to me
     G
Everyday would be 
    Am           G
A holiday from real

C               G
We'd waste our weeks 
            Am
Beneath the sun
              G
We'd fry our brains 
Am                             G
And say it's so much fun out here
               Am C G
But when it's all over
Am                  G
I'll come back for another year


I looked for work today
I'm spilling out the door
Put my glasses on 
So no one sees me
I never thought that
I'd be living on your floor

But the rents are high 
And LA's easy

Oh, it's a picture of perfection
Ah, and the postcards gonna read
"F**k yeah we can live like this...
We can live like this"

But if you left it up to me
Everyday would be 
A holiday from real
We'd waste our weeks 
Beneath the sun
We'd fry our brains 
And write it's so much fun out here


C                 
Hey Madeline (Hey Madeline)
G
You sure look fine (You sure look fine)
Am
You wore my favorite sweater
G
Being poor was never better
C
A safety buzz (A safety buzz)
G
Some cheap red wine (Some cheap red wine)
Am                         G
Oh, the trouble we can get in 
Am
So let's screw this one up right



But if you left it up to me
Everyday would be 
A holiday from real
We'd waste our weeks 
Beneath the sun
We'd lie and tell our friends
It's so much fun out here
But when it's all over
I'll come back for another year

When it's all over 
I'll come back for another
When it's all over 
I'll come back for another year
