Notes:
- A standard tuning arrangement without capo follows this capo'd
  alternate tuning arrangement.
- Tabs are for studio recording, using live video to help identify them.
- See the provided diagrams for chord fingerings. As this is not standard
  tuning, the chord fingerings for standard tuning do not apply. However, some
  less familiar chords have well-known fingering, e.g. Am11 is played as Am7.
- The Cadd9 chords are played in a fashion similar to "Riff for Cadd9".

[Intro]
Riff 1  Riff 2


[Verse 1]
Riff 1          Riff 1
Work was on the wane
               D    Dsus4/A  Cadd9        Riff 1  Riff 2
And I'd rather be   no       one, work in vain
Riff 1                  Riff 1
And I was searching for relief
           D       Dsus4/A  Cadd9        Riff 1  Riff 1
And as for me, I'd sooner   take than receive


[Chorus]
    G                Am11
And time she bears a cross
      G/B                Cadd9
In an ocean teaming with fraud
G/B        Dsus4/A         Riff 1  Riff 2
I'm on the shore without applause


[Instrumental]
Riff 1  Riff 2


[Verse 2]
Riff 1                             Riff 1
I'm always here and nothing can be done
            D     Dsus4/A  Cadd9                 Riff 1
O'er by the phone mean-    while they suck their thumbs
Riff 1                            Riff 1
Dead to rights, there's a fix and then
             D        Dsus4/A   Cadd9                Riff 1  Riff 2
It's not the drinking but the   worry that does you in


[Instrumental]
N.C.


[Bridge]
(The bridge lyrics are most certainly wrong, as are genius.com's.)
G                  Am11
I learned you once sold
    G/B          Cadd9
All ruthless and cold
G            Dsus4/A
Now gears of nothing
             G
Stacking up


[Chorus]
G           Am11
She bears a cross
      G/B                 Cadd9
In an ocean teaming with frauds
G/B        Dsus4/A          Riff 1
I'm on the shore without applause


[Outro]
Repeating Riff 1s and 2s

   Use pointer as barre across 'GBe' strings. Middle finger for 'B'.
   Pull-of and hammer on with ring finger on 'e' and pinky on 'G'.
   To simplify, only play 2 on the 'G' string.
