Cut off second part for the "Shake hands with..." part.

Album: Good Question.
Tabbed by: (Brian Davies)

This is arranged for a single guitar -- they play the first bit of the
riff on the bass, and have the guitar playing the synchopated chords. For
the lines I've marked [Bb], the guitar actually stays on Cm, with the
second and fourth notes of the main bass line reversed, so that there's a
Bb bass note under the chord, but that sounds a bit weird if you're
playing it solo.}

(e) |-----------------|-----3-----3---3-|
(B) |-----------------|-----4-----4---4-| Let the last chord ring.
(G) |-----------------|-----5-----5---5-| Play twice for intro.
(D) |-----------------|-----5-----5---5-|
(A) |-----------------|-3---3-----3---3-|
(E) |-----------3-6-3-|-----------------|

[Cm] A candle burning for everything I've ever wanted.
[Cm] A tattoo burned for everything I've ever wanted and lost.
[Bb] I had a long list of names that I kept in my back pocket,
[Cm] but I've cut it down to one and your name's at the top.

[F] Won't you [Eb] share a common dis[Cm]aster
[Eb] Share with [F] me a common dis[Bb]aster
[Dm] Oh [Eb] oh, common dis[Cm]aster

[Cm] I found myself a friend, but he's crooked as a stick in water.
[Cm] So now I'm writing fairy tales to catch the spirit of revenge.
[Bb] He's got a plan to steal my little sister,
[Cm] but I'm not too concerned 'cause I will get him in the end.

[Cm] Going to find me someone to share a common disaster.
[Cm] Run away with me from a life so cramped and dull.
[Bb] Not worry too much about the happily-ever-after.
[Cm] Just keep the Caddy moving 'til we're well beyond that hill.
