Record Body Count Written by Martin Tielli On the album "Melville" Transcribed by Aaron Albert (firstname.lastname@example.org) also trancribed by email@example.com With a little improvising and picking I find that RBC sounds quite good when played this way. Intro: A, D, D, D, C, A, G, A (this is pretty much the whole song) A D Joey pulled himself to his feet, D Hauled his body back up the bank D C A G A And looked back down there. A D He said the water was not that deep; D "But I almost drowned there." D C A G A You can drown in a bathtub so they say. A D "Someone in class called me a loser, D D C A G A So I decided to skip the day... A D I tried to look casual sneaking round the back, D D Past the shotput across the track D C A G A And to the gate beside the portables. A D But a red tie and school gray slacks D D Doesn't blend in with the grass D C A As the teacher was changing class. A/Ab A7 He chased me halfway through the park, Bm Till I ran into the woods; D A And I'm very good in the woods. A D So I was an Indian, D D Built a fire by the creek D C A And dried my eyes there." A/Ab A7 Bm There's a record body count this year D A There's a record body count this year. A D Joey stepped up on a block of ice, D D Put a rope around his neck, D C A And fell asleep before he died.
