            Sky High Honey

(All Fs should be barred)

There's a chord in the chorus that I don't know the name of, but I know it's right. I'm 
calling it F/C, and it's fingered like this:

e|-----x--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----1--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----1--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----3--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----1--------------------------------------------------------------------|

The low E string 1 is optional, and played by the thumb. It's basically a C chord with a 
bar over the G and B strings.

Also, in the chorus, there is a C (walkdown). If you listen to the song the guitar 
mimics the melody in the "sky high honey" part, which you can do by playing a C chord and 
then going:

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----1---0----------0-------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------2------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Alternatively, if you want it to sound bigger, you can go:

C   G    Am7 G  C
Sky high honey, gone.


OK, on to the music.

INTRO: C, Csus4

VERSE:

C            Em                F       G
I bet you're laughing at some joke he told you
C         Em             F         G
With his arm around your sunburnt shoulders
G           Em              F                G
I spent the morning with my face against the windowseat
G       Em              F                   G
Looking down at all the things that got the best of me

CHORUS:

C                  F/C
No more late night drives to Boston
F                  C (walkdown)
No more Cure songs to get lost in
C              F/C
No more taxis, subway tokens
F                   C (walkdown)    C
Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey, gone.

VERSE 2 (same chords)

I take the streetcars around San Francisco
Get winks from the pretty boys down in the Castro
Through the turnstiles roll the Jappy (?) girls, the shabby dolls
I can't resist myself, I get their names, I never call.

CHORUS 2

C                  F/C
No more late night drives to Boston
F                  C (walkdown)
No more Cure songs to get lost in
C              F/C
No more taxis, subway tokens
F                   C (walkdown)    Em
Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey, gone.
C (walkdown)        Em
I'm sky high honey, gone.

BRIDGE:

Em           F                C
You wait too long, you never leave
Em                F          C          G
And it feels like dying, but still your heart beats

Em, F, C, G
Em, F, C walkdown

CHORUS 3 (quieter)

C                  F/C
No more late night drives to Boston
F                  C (walkdown)
No more Cure songs to get lost in
C              F/C
No more taxis, subway tokens
F                   C (walkdown)    Em
Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey, gone.
C (walkdown)        C
I'm sky high honey, gone.
