Overkill Chords

   
Overkill (Men at Work/Colin Hay) "acoustic version"
(see chords below)

D              D/C#      D/C
I can't get to sleep
D/C                D/B                D  
I think about the implications
D                D/C#      D/C
Of diving in too deep
D/C             D/B                D  
And possibly the complications
D              D/C#      D/C
Especially at night
D/C             D/B
I worry over situations
D              D/C#      D/C
I know will be alright
D/C                D/B
Perhaps it's just imagination

Bm                A     A(sus)  A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                                A?1      A?2
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
E?1        E?2                   G      A    A(sus)  A 
Ghosts appear and fade away 
D                   D/C#      D/C
Alone between the sheets
D/C           D/B                 D  
Only brings exasperation
D                      D/C#          D/C
It's time to walk the streets 
D/C         D/B
Smell the desperation
D                         D/C#      D/C
At least there's pretty lights
D/C                       D/B              D  
And though there's little variation
D                 D/C#        D/C
It nullifies the night
D/C           D/B            D  
From overkill
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/men_at_work/overkill_crd_ver_3.html ]
Bm                A     A(sus)  A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                                A?1    A?2
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
E?1     E?2                     G      A    A(sus)  A 
Ghosts appear and fade away, come back another day

(INTRO)

D              D/C#      D/C
I can't get to sleep
D/C                  D/B                       D  
I think about the implications
D                 D/C#      D/C
Of diving in too deep
D/C                D/B                       D  
And possibly the complications
D               D/C#      D/C
Especially at night
D/C            D/B                       D  
I worry over situations that
D             D/C#      D/C
I know will be alright
D/C          D/B                       D  
It's just overkill

Bm                A     A(sus)  A
Day after day it reappears
Bm                               A?1                  A?2
Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear
E?1    E?2              G      A    A(sus)  A 
Ghosts appear and fade away
E?1    E?2              G     (hold G)
Ghosts appear and fade away
