Barenaked Ladies - Take It Outside Guitar Chords

Barenaked Ladies

alternative rock, canadian indie, canadian pop, canadian rock

Song versions: 1 2 3
Chords: Asus2, E, F#, Bsus4, G#, C#m7
This has always been one of my favorite BNL songs. It's much different than 
anything else they've put out, in my opinion.

Unlike any other BNL song, this one is in Eb tuning (tuned down a half step to D# 
G# C# F# A# D#). You MUST use this tuning, otherwise the song will sound nothing like it should.

No capo

[Verse 1]
Asus2 E     Asus2           E
Oh,   I - I watch it all go down
Asus2  E         Asus2          E
Closed eyes - pretend no one's around
Asus2/F# Bsus4/G# Asus2              Bsus4
So       I - I    chose to play the clown
Asus2/F# Bsus4/G# Asus2         Bsus4
Or blow  by and   never make a sound

[Chorus]
E         Bsus4 C#m7                   Asus2
Any other guy      would wanna take it outside
        E           Bsus4 C#m7                      Asus2 (3 strums, then PM)
But I'd never even try        who wants to get their lights knocked out?
E          Bsus4 C#m7                     Asus2
Any other guy         would wanna stir it up some,
        Asus2/F# Bsus4/G#  Bsus4
But I'd rather say     goodbye

[Verse 2]
Turn 'round - say it to my face
No sound - Everything's a race
Lose ground - lost in your embrace
Leave town - never leave a trace

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
C#m7    Asus2     E         Bsus4
Hardly know what anything's for
C#m7      Asus2      E          Bsus4
Just for show, I'm slamming the door
C#m7 Asus2  E            Bsus4       Asus2
Even so, my heart and my head are an open book

[Instrumental]
Asus2 , E [x4]
or
Play the intro riff [x4]

[Chorus x2]

    Asus2/F# Bsus4/G#  Bsus4
I'd rather say     goodbye

(End on E)
