Four Little Songs
by the Rheostatics!
 
 
tabbed on a slow sunday afternoon by Anthony Fragomeni
 
 
This has always been one of my favourite rheostatics tunes, especially when 
they play it live.
 
 
all chords in the chorus part can be played as sevenths.

A#5
You were good, you were shrapnel, quick.
 
G5
But your knife blade wouldn't stick.
 
   A#5
A tool is a weapon when a love goes sick.
 
G5                A                   D
You were bored of, you were bored of me

You were bored of, you were bored of me
 
Bb5                C                   D
You were bored of, you were bored of me

This lady's shaped like the Tour de France.
A thousand wheels besieged the city of romance. (in the night!)
 
 
 
G                             C
The cigarettes all burn like hay (hey! hey!).
 
G                           F     G
A yellow jersey stained red, cabernet.

Kerr:
 
E5                 D5                E5
Huge creatures plowing the streets tonight night night
 
E|--0-2-3-5-3-2--|
 
E5               D5           E5
Moon antlers set the sky alight, light, light.
 
 
 
        G         C        D
On the carousel      (of life)...

Chorus

Bidini:
 
Dm    G
 
 
(Strange men, as strong as bears and as fierce as wolves.
Hungry men, hungry for the skins of beaver and mink and otter.)
 
Dm                      G
I had a dream I stood in Neil Young's kitchen.
 
Dm                    G
He looked superior, and I felt like retching.
 
C   C/B          Am
He said I had to go away.
 
C   C/B          Am
He said, "No you must obey
 
C   C/B          Am
The laws of the universe,
 
C   C/B          Am
And the laws of the second verse.
 
F                G                Am
You're only as good as your last song.
 
F                G                        Am
It's better to burn-out than to be proven wrong.
 
F                G                  (NC)  Em
the force w ill sound like a giant gong."
 
F                G
I cracked my fingers and my brain goes...
