Version: 2 Type: Tab

Guinevere Tab

Artist: Eli Young Band
Song: Guinevere
Tuning: Standard

This tab should be pretty close to the album version of the song. You can either play
the riffs for the intro/verse 1 as i've tabbed out below or play the chords which i've
also put above the lyrics. The two G chords with the asterisk (*) are only played if you 
are not playing the tabbed riff.

(Chords in Parenthesis are the base chords for each riff, the 'base' chords are shown below):

 C    G    Am   F

Intro/Verse 1:  (through 'needs to land')
  (C)                 (G)                    (Am)

  (Am cont)   (F)

Next part of verse 1:  ('She's a saturday night...' --to--...including me.')
 (Am)                  (F)            (G)

[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/eli_young_band/guinevere_tab_ver_2.html ]
She's got a bumper like a billboard
Covered in stickers of her favorite band
She's got a handful of records that she turns to
When she needs to land
        Am                 G* (play this if not picking riff above for Verse)
She's a saturday night parade through the streets
     F                              G
That all eyes some to see including me

(Drums enter; Repeat First Riff above--Same as first part of the verse)

            C                                          G
She carries memories around like souvenirs down in her pockets
                Am                                   F
She should have let some go by now but can't seem to drop it
     Am                              G* (same as G* above)
Says forgiveness ain't nothing but a lifeless tire on the
shoulder of her soul
That never rolls

       Am           F               C
For as much as she stumbled she's runnin'
       Am           F                C
For as much as she runs she's still here
       Am         G               F            C
Always hoping to find something quicker than heaven

             C               C      G
To make the damage of her days disappear
  F        G  Am  F   C
Just like Guinevere

          C                           G
She don't hold onto nothin' new for very long
Yeah she writes you in as just one more tale
and then you're gone
           Am                         G
'Cause she once fell hard 'cause she dropped her guard
    F                                 G
And no one gets to stay it's just too late

(Repeat Chorus)

Am        F       C
Just like Guinevere

        Am            F              C
For as much as she's stumbled she's runnin'

        Am          F                C
For as much as she runs she's still here

(Repeat Chorus)

   Am        F       C
Oh Just like Guinevere
