Based on a True Story
By: Rose Blossom Punch
Off of: TTTL III
c1997 5 Minute Walk Records
Tabbed by: Chris Shumate (

   As the person who tabbed your Based on a True Story needed some
help, like
he said. 
So using what he wrote I think I've got a pretty acurate tab.

Intro. & Verses:
 The Magic Riff (Fill 1)
   (It sounds like a bass on the c.d. but you can play it on the low E

E----5-5---7---8-8---15---13-13---1--3-3-Just keep repeating
  *On 3rd repeat add drums and on 5th add vocals

Verse 1:
   Shade is shelter, for the sinking 
   Kind and knowing, of my heart
   And all I know is takin from me
   What I percieved has gone away
   And now I feel the light exposing
   Things I never thought I'ld say

   *All in power chords
C                        A
  Shake me now I might believe
C                      A
  That all before me is a dream
G                           Bb
  And kill the feeling of antipathy

Fill 1 x2 

Verse 2:
   Finger pointing to the ceiling
   Faces burned into the walls
   The ghost of lies was born this evening
   His laughter echos down the halls


  *Power chords w/ hard destortion
A  A             D    D        E     
     But if you leave it up to me
A  A           D     D        E
     I won't believe it for myself
A  A               D    D        E
     And all thats left is to be free
A  A          D  D           E
     From the pictures on the shelf

Solo w/ Fill 1 quietly in the background:
   I don't know it all but it starts out like this

G--2---4--5---7--5--0----2---4-5-4-5--7--9--7 thats all I can write
getting confussing


Fill 2:
  *Power Chords
    A B C

Chorus 2:
   And I can fell you in my hand
   Like I did before and when 
   Things were simple we could understand

  AA DD E (Let E fade out)
