tabbed by Matthew Fehrmann (theguy@iag.net)

Comments:  Listen to the CD to figure out strumming and tab timing.
The tab and the chords that go along with it are correct, I know it, but if
you feel there are any errors, please email me at theguy@iag.net.

Verse 1:
           G
Fare thee well
F/G               C9                  G    
Trade in all our words for tea and sympathy
F/G             C9                        Em
Wonder why we tried, for things that could never be
           A                    Em            D     C9
Play our hearts lament, like an unrehearsed symphony

         G
Not intend
   F/G               C9              G
To leave this castle full of empty rooms
               F/G           C9            Em
Our love the captive in the tower never rescued
              A
And all the victory songs
Em            D             C9
Seem to be playing out of tune

[Figure A for lead and listed chords for backup/rhythm parts]
D                  Bm
But it's not the way
                F#m
That it has to be
                 G                           
Don't trade our love for tea and sympathy, no
[Figure B for lead and listed chords for backup/rhythm parts]
D                    Bm
'Cause it's not the way
                Am      Em
That it has to be

Verse 2:
       A
You begin
              G                 D                    A
And all your words fall to the floor and break like china cups
         G                                  F#m
And the waitress grabs a broom and tries to sweep them up
   B                    F#m        E       
I reach for my tea and slow-----l--y-- drink in

Chorus:

[Figure A for lead and listed chords for backup/rhythm parts]
D                  Bm
But it's not the way
                F#m
That it has to be
                 G                           
Don't trade our love for tea and sympathy, no
[Figure B for lead and listed chords for backup/rhythm parts]
D                    Bm
'Cause it's not the way
                Am    
That it has to be
      G
Don't trade our love for tea and sympathy

Interlude:

D   C9   Bb   C9
D   C9   Bb   Bb

Verse 3:
              G
So fare thee well
F/G               C9                  G
Words the bag of leaves that fill my head
        F/G             C9                 Em
I could taste the bitterness and call the waitress instead
A                     Em                   D          C9
She holds the answer, smiles and asks one teaspoon or two

[Chorus x 2]

D   C9   Bb   A

            D
Don't trade us for tea and sympathy
            C9
Don't trade us for tea and Sympathy
            Bb
Don't trade us for tea and Sympathy
A
We can work it out
            D
Don't trade us for tea and Sympathy
            C9
Don't trade us for tea and Sympathy
            Bb
Don't trade us for tea and Sympathy
A
We can work it out

A   C9   C9   A9 A  
                      D
We can work it out, woah
