Title: Play the C Chord
Album: Everybody Makes Mistakes
Transcribed by: Kyle Stedman
Email: kstedman@rollins.edu
Written by Jason Martin / Some Blue Collar Songs (ASCAP)
(P) & (C) 1999 Tooth and Nail Records

Note, of course, that this is appoximate and must be made better by he/she
who is holding the guitar--listen to the record and you'll get the idea.
Notice also that this is Starflyer, and thus all strings are tuned down half
a step, which is important if playing with the record.  


Intro (play this a couple times, loosely)

Intro chords can be played on an acoustic as such:

Em Cmaj7 Asus2 G (4x)


(best guess at indecipherable lyrics follow)

          Em     Cmaj7    Asus2   
Is there time?                                          

G               Em     Cmaj7     Asus2
Feeling the lights.

G           Em       Cmaj7       Asus2
Putting a song to life,

G          Em      Cmaj7      Asus2      
feeling the old time.

who wrote the prize?

    G             Em        Cmaj7    Asus2
And we write the songs you like

G              Em      Cmaj7      Asus2     G
in half the time.



Chorus

G                 D                  Am            Am  
    Something's wrong, it fixed the old mess.

      C       G        D               Am             Am
Just play the C Chord     like it's something.

C           G       D                Am            Am
Something's wrong,     it fixed the old mess.

      C       G        D               Am
Just play the C Chord     like it's something,

 G          Am
like it's something.

And happily, it's all repeated from there.  The second verse is really just
the second half of the first verse, and once again the electric hitting root
of the chord, open b string, root of the chord, open b string jumps in half
way through.  Chorus is the same.  Same chord progression throughout the
"Like it's something you can see" bit, go wild.  Cheers!  Anyone with more
Starflyer stuff, especially off Everybody Makes Mistakes or Fashion Focus
feel free to feed me.  Or Denison Marrs.  Or Pedro the Lion.
