This is Steven Page's own version of the tab.  He does not use the 7th chords that the other
tabs on here have. If you click on the video link above, it is Steven himself giving you the 
exact chords and tutorial for the song.

The Em walk-up looks like this (just move one finger):

night, Just to check out the late-night record shop.
G        D                    Am               Am
Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, call it insane
G                D                   Bm    Am
But when I'm surrounded I just can't Sto-o-op.

Ring a bell and I'll salivate, how'd you like that?
G     D                  Bm               Am
Dr. Landy tell me you're not just a pedagogue 'cause right now I'm...

Just listening and re-listening to Smiley... 
G                 D                 Bm             Am
Smile, and I'm wondering if this is some kind of creative drought because

Wondering where the hell all the love has go-o-one.
Am           D                   F            Em
