Lemonheads – Tenderfoot lyrics

Pre>em, d c, c, g f#m

Em d c
This is the spot of where I jump off
Gf#m
This is the place I wear the save face
Em d c g f#m
This is the bar of where I lose heart

G c
Over the pain and I'm past the bleeding
Am d
Its not the tracks it's where they're leading

Emd c
This my best king carnovore
G f#m
This is my scream it's just a dull roar
Em d c g f#m
These are my hands I've shown you before
G c
Over the pain and I'm past the bleeding
Am d
Its not the tracks it's where they're leading

Gf#mc f#m
Hasn't been so bad yet I'll do it again
G f#m c f#m
Error of my ways, maybe one of these days

-repeat
G dc
Its irrelevant I'm an elephant she's a mouse x2

From: louisa
Subject: a better tenderfoot

Tenderfoot by smudge (or a lemonheads cover song)
Written by tom morgan (smudge) and adam young (daisygrinders)
Tab by louisa sher (verve@dot. Net. Au) and B. Pemberton

The thing that throws you most in this song is the bass part
Which plays g f# e pattern on the e string
This can be incorporated into the guitar part nicely
But that confuses the tab a bit, so do that yrself at home...
