  Song: Carry the Zero

Tabbed by: justin@indieguitartabs.com

The solo is played on the B string, so I only tabbed that string.
I'm not much for timing, so you'll have to get the hang of it yourself.

  Amaj7     E           B7            F#m
  I'm not knocking your want to carry that home 
  Amaj7     E           B7                F#m
  Took it with you when you moved and got it broke 
  Amaj7       E          B7           F#m
  Found the pieces, we counted them all alone 
  Amaj7       E     B7               F#m
  Didn't add up, forgot to carry a zero

  Amaj7     E       B7         F#m
  I can't be your apologist very long 
  Amaj7       E              B7            F#m
  I'm surprised that you'd want to carry that on 
  Amaj7         E            B7                F#m
  Count your blemishes you can't they're all gone 
  Amaj7     E           B7                      F#m
  I can't see your response putting them back on 
  Amaj7          E                B7 
  Like they're waiting for your guard to fall 
     F#m             Amaj7
  So they can see it all 
                E
  And you're so occupied with what 
  B7                F#m
  other persons are occupied with 
  Amaj7
  And vice versa 

      E           B7                     F#m
  And you've become what you thought was dumb 
                    Amaj7
  A fraction of the sum 
              E                     B7
  Yeah you've become, yeah you have become, 
                    F#m
  A fraction of the sum
                     Amaj7
  the middle and the front 
  And now it's coming back 
                  E
  hasn't come too far 
        Amaj7
  I was trying to help but 
                      E
  I guess I pushed too hard 
             Amaj7        
  And now we can't even touch it 
                     E
  'fraid it'll fall apart
