<< Go Back

This is a great song from The Verve Pipe. We play this song in the key of “D”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


verse1:
D                      G
when I was young I knew everything
     Bm                        G
and she a punk who rarely ever took advice
        D                              G
now I'm guilt stricken sobbing with my head on the floor
Bm                            G
stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice (no)

PRE-CHOR
Bm  A  G
          I can't be held responsible
Bm  A         G  
         'cause she was touching her face
Bm  A  G   
          I won't be held responsible
Bm  A               G
          she fell in love in the first place

CHORUS:
D                   G
for the life of me, I cannot remember
Bm                             G                         D
what made us think that we were wise and we didn't compro-mise
                 G
for the life of me,  I cannot believe
     Bm                        G
we'd ever die for these sins we were merely freshmen

verse2:
my best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
his girl took a week's worth of valium and slept
and now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he says...

(repeat PREchorus)
(repeat CHORUS)

verse3:
we've tried to wash our hands of all of this
we never talk of our lacking relationships
and how we're guilt stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
we fell through the ice, when we tried not to slip, we'd say it...

(repeat PREchorus)
(repeat CHORUS)
