D      D/g  D/f# D    D/b  D   D/f# D/e D/g D/f# G      /F#
people sink your boat when you cut  a   tra-gic  figure
Em               A       Em               A
they drink their lemonade and throw you a line
D         D/g D/f# D       D/b D  D/f# D/e D/g    D/f# G      /F#
boil your problem  down to yes or no       what's the  matter
Em             A        Em               A
they bomb your promenade and this makes it shine
F#                   G    /F#      Em     A  /G
so you must play the comic if they want one
F#                 G     /F#           Em     A  /G
and describe their moment when they're in one
D      D/g  D/f# D  D/b D   D/f# D/e D/g    D/f# G      /F#
people pass you  by passing up   the chance to   know you
Em        A      Em            A
they're irregular in the usual way
D          D/g   D/f# D     D/b     D D/f#  D/e D/g   D/f# G      /F#
you should crack a    smile once in a while it  makes you  pretty
Em           A         Em                    A
it makes you wanna give them a piece of your mind
F#                G    /F#      Em     A  /G
but they can't be people not if I'm one
F#                  G             /F#       Em    A  /G
and if I have to be like them I'd rather be no one
D        D/g  D/f# D     D/b D    D/f# D/e D/g D/f# G      /F#
couldn't make the  scene not with all  the peo-ple  looking
Em        A           Em                A
all these connoisseurs on guard all the time
D      D/g   D/f# D   D/b   D  D/f# D/e D/g D/f# G      /F#
rather spend the  day blank as hell     by  the  window
Em      A        Em                A
looking out of my stained glass eye

la la la... [fades out]

  1. is it possible that the D is played like this?: xx0230 (ie a Dsus2). it seems fits better with the strums he does at the beginning.

  2. the only difference between this website and sweetadeline is at this website you can be sure the trabs are 100%

  3. after thinking about it… I realized that you are just reading this tab wrong. the slashes have nothing to do with indecision. they indicate bass notes to play along with the chord. so like when it says G and then later /F# it means keep playing G but instead of playing the G bass note, play the F# bass note. If you actually played an F# there, it would sound wrong. I’ll post a cover of this song playing it exactly how it’s tabbed if you’re still not convinced this is tabbed correctly.

  4. Dude it bugs the hell out of me how indicisive you are with all the slashes. I think the only thing you got close to sounding right was “they bomb your promanade and this makes it shine.” The positive thing about this is that you tried; I’ll give you that much.
