It's obviously in the key of G in an Eb-tuned guitar.

C                A              G7
Speak to me in a language I can hear,
C           A              G7
Humour me before I have to go.
C       A                      G7
Deep in thought I forgive everyone,
       C                 A             G7
As the cluttered streets greet me once again.
G7                 C       A
I know I can't be late,
G7                 C       A
supper's on the table.
G7                         C     A
Tomorrow's just an excuse away,
G7                          C            A
So I pull my collar up and face the cold,

On my own.
C                    A            G7
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet,
C                    A            G7
At the Blasphemy in my old jangly walk.
C                      A          G7
Steeple guide me to my heart and home,
C                  A             G7
The sun is out and up and down again,
G7                    C
I know I ll make it, love can last forever,
G7                      D           C            D
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth, And you
     C       A       G7
Can make it last, forever you.
            C        A    G7
And you can make it last forever you.
G7
And for a moment I lose myself,
D
Wrapped up in the pleasures of the world,
      C                   A            G7
I've journeyed here and there and back again.
           C         A                      G7
But in the same old haunts I still find my friends,
C             A         G7
Mysteries not ready to reveal,
C              A        G7
Sympathies I'm ready to return.
G7                     C
I'll make the effort, love can last forever.
G7                      D             C
Graceful swans of never topple to the earth.
D                   C
Tomorrow's just an excuse,
        C           A     G7
And you can make it last, forever you.
         C       A    G7
You can make it last, forever you.


Title: Thirty-Three
Group: The Smashing Pumpkins
Album: Mellon Collie and The Infinite Saddness
      (disc 2: track 3)
Tabbed by: Jon Reisch (Kaazin49@aol.com)

I've seen several versions of this song posted around the
internet, but wasn't satisfied with any of them, so here's
my own work on it.


Chords: o= open string x= not played
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/smashing_pumpkins/thirty_three_crd_ver_2.html ]
     G   C  Dsus2
e    3   o   o           The main problem with other tabs is
b    3   1   3           the Dsus2 chord, which many confuse
g    o   o   2           with simply D. But if you listen
d    o   2   o           carefully you can hear the
a    2   3   o           difference.  Billy uses this chord
E    3   o   x           in Tonight, Tonight too.


Other notes: This is played with three guitars.

Guitar 1: Phaser/flanger w/delay and reverb. (Only plays the
          changes. Phase/Flange and the delay are increased
          after "on my own...)"
Guitar 2: Acoustic (strums chords throughout)
Guitar 3/piano: Clean Electric (plays small lead riff
                                throughout)


Intro: G x3

  C              Dsus2            G
Speak to me in a language I can hear
  C       Dsus2           G
Humor me before I have to go
  C               Dsus2         G
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
         C               Dsus2            G
as the cluttered streets greet me once again
  G                C      Dsus2
I know I can't be late
  G                       C     Dsus2
supper's waiting on the table
  G                          C    Dsus2
Tomorrow is just an excuse away
  G                                  C    Dsus2
So I turn my collar up and face the cold,
(let Dsus2 ring) G (as soon as "own..")
on my own. . .
  C                Dsus2            G
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
  C                Dsus2            G
at the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
  C                Dsus2            G
steeple guide me to my heart and home
  C               Dsus2            C
the sun is up and out and down again
  C
I know I'll make it
  G
love can last forever
  C
graceful swans of never
Dsus2           C
topple to the earth
  G                    C    Dsus2
and you could make it last forever,
 G                 C    Dsus2
you could make it last forever
 C
and for a moment I lose myself
 Dsus2                              G
wrapped up in the pleasure of the world
 C                      Dsus2            G
i've journeyed here and there and back again
 C                           Dsus2            G
but in the same old haunts I still find my friends
 C            Dsus2       G
mysteries not ready to reveal
 C             Dsus2      C
sympathies I'm ready to return
 C
I'll make the effort
 G
love can last forvever
 C
graceful swans of never
 Dsus2          C
topple to the earth
 Dsus2              C
tomorrow's just an excuse
 Dsus2               C      G
tomorrow's just and excuse away
 G             C    Dsus2
could make it last forever,
 G                 C    Dsus2
you could make it last forever,
 G                 C    Dsus2
you could make it last forever
C    Dsus2 (let ring)
you,
          G
forever  you...

Outro: G x4

   For the piano/Clean electric here's what is played:

riff 1:
e|----------------------|       Riffs 1&2 are played whenever a G is
b|9-8-9-11-9-8----------|       played pretty much. For the intro and
                       outro they alternate, and for the
riff 2:                rest Riff 1 is used almost
e|------11-8------------|       exclusively. Just listen to the CD
b|9-8-9------11---------|       for the timing and changes between
                       the two.

As always comments/suggestions/corrections are welcome! If
anyone has any more specific info on the effects used on
guitar 1, please email me.  Thanks! (Kaazin49@aol.com)
