How To Play

This song, naturally, is for piano. I've tabbed it out for guitar with the aim of making
it sound as correct as possible while still being technically feasible for a solo player
 
 
INTRO
 
These are just arpeggiated chords way up the fretboard.

VERSE
 
Bb C   F        Bb               C
By the time the buzz was wearing off 
 
        C7                  F
We were standing out on the sidewalk 
 
         Bb                       C
With our tattoos that looked like rings 
 
 
 
       Bb     C     Bb
In the hot Nevada   sun 
 
 
Verse 2
 
Gifts piled high and our moms and dads shook hands
And our party of polaroid friends
Rented a pool and hired a band
 
 
Bridge
Bb                        F
Maybe they knew more than we knew 
 
            A                     Dm                Bb          Bbm
Cause they danced and drank while we jumped off the deep end 
 
 
CHORUS
 
In order to have the root notes make any melodic sense, play at least the first two
chords from each line only on the high 4 strings (D G B e). If this part is too complex,
you can simplify it by ignoring the altered root notes and just playing standard chords
 
             F     F/A     Bb    F
Oh I've got you 
 
    C/E            C/Bb    A     A
To thank 
 
     F             F/A     Bb    F
For this 
 
            C/E    C/D     A     A
 
 
 
Christmas came around
Yeah and everything was going to crap
For moms and dads, not a clue to be had
Yeah we put on a pretty good act
 
 
And they seemed to all need to believe it
So we danced and drank and paddled hard Beneath it
 
 
 
Oh I've got you
To thank
For this
 
 
Bb   C   Bb   C      Bb C   A      Bb
You can't say you've ne-ver had a doubt 
 
     C    Bb        C  Bb  C  A      F
and smoked it down but really wanted out 
 
 
Play chorus sans lyrics.
 
Then there's a solo. I found one transcription that claims its F Bb C A played 4 times.
This sounds wrong to me, but whatever. If anyone feels inspired to figure out something
here, more power to you. I'm moving on.
 
 
By the time the buzz was wearing off
We were standing out on the sidewalk
With our tattoos that looked like rings
In the hot Nevada sun
 
    Bb   C     F
And they won't fade 
 
Chorus
