Most of the rest is just variations of these.

Kinda a cheesy version of this but it gets you by:
Solo
E--8--8--12b13--8------------------------------------------|
B--8--8-----------10--10b11-6-5-3--3b4-3-3----3-3b4--3-3---|
G----------------------------------0---0-0h2--0-0----0-0h2-|
D----------------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------|

Yet another even worse "just to complete the song" kinda thing goin on:
			   <-X2			   <-X2
E--8---7-----5--5--5---3---|---6--5----3-3-3--1-----|
B--11--10----8--8--8---6---|---9--8----6-6-6--2-----|
G--10--9-----7--7--7---5---|---8--7----5-5-5--3-----|
D--8---7-----5--5--5---0h3-|---6--5----3-3-3--0h1---|
A--8---7-----5--5--5---0h3-|---6--5----3-3-3--0h1---|
D--8---7-----5--5--5---0h3-|---6--5----3-3-3--0h1---|

It's mostly a fingerpick along with a bass playing the low notes.

Lyrics
Goin past Golden Gate
Elementary everyday
Kids down colorful hill
Recess and fire drills

She likes the side without the heat
Where the sun don't beat
She likes the cooler side of Washington street

Hummingbirds pigeons and doves
Hover rooftops above
Lights shine down into the tides
Over hillsides

See where the bridge and mountain meet
At the mouth of the sea
Where the sailboats live a day
And turn away
With the purple evening

Losing our loving hold
In the skies fluorescent glow
She takes her thoughts and cares
Into the moonlit alley stairs

Still in my hand I feel the sting
And the sound of bells ring
And the memory of the face
Never washes away
With the current evening


Tuning Instructions:
Play an open low E(6th string) and an open D(4th)string at the same time.
Lower the E string until you begin to hear the same tone. To fine tune, play
the low E(now D) string at the 7th fret and tune it to the open D(4th) string.

First Tab. Hope I didn't chop up a decent song too much. If you add to this or post this
anywhere I would very much appreciate an e-mail. mocha@gte.net
