Tabbed by: Jan



The Song is in G#, but I prefer to use the Capo 1st.

That's how it is notated here:
G/F#: 2x0033



[Intro:]
G G/F# F D

G G/F# F D
I have spent my li____fe trying to understand

G G/F# F D
Just how my life lets aware who I am

C D C
But it leaves a bitter taste

D G (begin of chorus pattern)
And feels like such a waste

D C D
I am so totally vague

G D C D
Betray the dark line, see if I care

G D C D
I loved you when I was young

G Am
But no mo____re

C D G G/F# F D
So burn down the fireman's fair

[Intro starts on "fair" then two times]

[Verse 2 exactly the same as Verse 1]


Memory plays its tricks on me
In my mind's eye, I claim to see
I'm losing every race I run
Making misery out of fun
So bulldoze the new road they're driving
Slash the beanbag chair
You held me for so very long
But no more
So burn down the fireman's fair

Bridge:

F G
How many type of things do we think we need?

F G
But that doesn't make them true

F G
I'm a little afraid I'm falling far and free

F [Interlude:] G G/F# C D
I'll leave that up to you

G G/F# C D
That's up to you


G D C D
So won't you find me totally vague

G D C D
A drain has die__d, see if I care

G D C D
I loved you when I was young

G Am
But no mo____re

C D G G/F# C D
So burn down the fireman's fair

Fireman's fair
Burn down the fireman's fair
Fireman's fair
Burn down the fireman's fair

[end on:] F G
