Here is my transcription for Rumor Mill - great song by an amazing band. I worked it out
by ear, so it may not be 100% perfect, but I think it sounds good.
Questions/comments/suggestions/corrections are encouraged and welcomed! Enjoy!
Note: In the instrumental break right after the second chorus, they quicky switch
between two notes two times. I wrote it in as D (lift off middle finger) in two spots. Its not
the proper chord name but if you play it, it will fit well.
D A B G
D A G
Here we go again,
It's like you're calling all the shots before I shoot them
and I hate that.
Every time I turn my back I wonder what you'll
say to make me sound like someone different
It's not worth it anymore
B G A
We've been picking up the pieces Leaving all the dust behind.
B G A
Sick of all the pressure, you're just wasting time
And I don't ever wanna know what it feels like
to be a shadow of myself
G D A
and I don't ever wanna come back down from this feeling
G D A B
What makes you think that you know what's better for me
G D A
And I don't think you wanna see what's underneath
your made up version of me.
Verse 2: (slightly different than V1)
There you go again believing that the truth is what you're reading
Talk some shit I haven't heard before.
If you've got something to say (Don't wanna talk about it)
If you need someone to blame (Don't wanna cry about it)
I measure life in minutes but these critics think they've got me figured out
D - D (lift off middle finger) - D - D (lift off middle finger)
I lost the strength to keep my grip on the reality that
everything from day to day is
Fading from my memory
But I'll never let this grow
out of my control and watch your steps so
you don't fall into this hole you've dug alone
D - D (lift off middle finger) - Dsus4 (add pinky on high E string)
this hole you've dug alone
Intro repeat. On the last G chord, hit it 3 times and sustain it
