“Wishlist”
Pearl Jam

C                                                   F                        C
I wish I was a neutron bomb – for once, I could go off.
I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree… I wish I was the star that went on top…

C  F                   C                F                     C
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
C    F                 C                            G                        F
For fifty million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a silhouette – someone who waited for me.
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me…

I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good.
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro’s hood.

SOLO:   G – F – C  /  G – F – C  /  G – F – C

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun.
I wish I was a souvenir you kept your house key on…

I wish I was the pedal brakes that you depended on.
I wish I was the verb “to trust” and never let you down.

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up.
I wish I was…

“Living Well is the Best Revenge” by R.E.M. – Chords & How to Play

“Living Well is the Best Revenge”
R.E.M.

B
It’s only when your poison spins into the life you’d hoped to live
and suddenly you wake up in a shaken panic
B            A         B
now…

You had set me up like a lamb to slaughter,
Garbo as a farmer’s daughter.
Unbelievable.  The gospel according to… who?
I lay right down.

F#
All your sad and lost apostles
A                             E
hum my name and flare their nostrils,
F#                                                     A
choking on the bones you tossed to them.
F#
Now I’m not one to sit and spin because
A                       E
living well is the best revenge, and
D               A                    E
baby, I am calling you on that.

Don’t turn your talking points on me.
History will set me free.
The future is ours and you don’t even rate a footnote.
now…

So who’s chasing you?
Where did you go, you disappear mid-sentence in a judgement crisis…
I see my in and go for it.  You weakened shill.

All your sad and lost apostles
hum my name and flare their nostrils,
choking on the bones you tossed to them.
Now I’m not one to sit and spin
because living well is the best revenge,
and baby, I am calling you on that.

You, savor your dying breath.
I forgive but I don’t forget.
You work it out.  Let’s hear that argument again.  Camera 3.  Go.  Now.

All your sad and lost apostles
hum my name and flare their nostrils,
choking on the bones you tossed to them.
Now I’m not one to sit and spin
because living well is the best revenge,
and baby, I am calling you on that.
baby, I am calling you on that.
baby, I am calling you on that.

“The End” by Pearl Jam – Chords, Tabs, & How to Play

“The End”
Pearl Jam

F#                            C#
What were all those dreams we shared
C#       Ebm              F#
Those many years ago?
What were all those plans we made
Now left beside the road?
F#   B                    F#
Be – hind us in the road.

More than friends I always pledged
Cause friends they come and go
People change as does everything
I wanted to grow old
Just want to grow old

F#          B         F#
Slide on next to me
F#  B                    Ab
I’m  just a human being
B                   Ebm
I will take the blame
Ebm           C#
But just the same
C#             B
This is not me
You see
Believe
B                     F#
I’m better than this

F#     B                  F#
Don’t leave me so cold
F#   B                            Ab
Or   buried beneath the stones
B                   Ebm
I just want to hold on
Ebm  C#                            B
And   know I’m worth your love
Enough
I don’t think
B                                      F#
There’s such a thing…

It’s my fault, now I been caught
A sickness in my bones
How it pains to leave you here
With the kids on your own
Just don’t let me go

Help me see myself
Cause I can no longer tell
Looking out from the inside of
The bottom of a well
It’s hell
I yell
But no one hears

Before I disappear
Whisper in my ear
Give me something to echo
In my unknown future’s ear

My dear
The end
Comes near
I’m here
But not much longer

“Heavy Metal Drummer”
Wilco

D                                 D7
I sincerely miss those heavy metal bands
C                                    A
I used to go see on the landing in the summer.
She fell in love with the drummer, she fell in love with the drummer,
She fell in love…

Shiny, shiny pants, bleached blonde hair
A double kick drum by the river in the summer
She fell in love with the drummer, another then another
She fell in love…

G             A                      D                D7
I miss the innocence I’ve known,
G                              A                    D                D7       C       A
Playing Kiss covers, beautiful and stoned.

Unlock my body and move myself to dance
Into warm liquid, flowing, blowing glass.
Classical music, blasting, masks the ringing
In my ears.

Oh, I sincerely miss those heavy metal bands
I used to go see on the landing in the summer
She fell in love with the drummer, she fell in love with another,
She fell in love…

I miss the innocence I’ve known,
Playing Kiss covers, beautiful and stoned.

I miss the innocence I’ve known,
Playing Kiss covers, beautiful and stoned.
Playing Kiss covers, beautiful and stoned.
Playing Kiss covers, beautiful and stoned.
