A Fond Farewell by Ukulele Chords

Elliot Smith – A Fond Farewell
Tuning: 1/2 step down (E♭-A♭-D♭-G♭-B♭-E♭)

PLEASE comment or email me if you think something is wrong.

NOTES:
1. I wrote another tab for this about a year ago with only chords. I added the intro and
corrected other small mistakes on this one.
2. I would love if someone figured out the hammer-on’s and pull-offs that i missed.
3. At times, there are two different guitar parts, but they play together during the
verse and chorus.

All Chords – gave both open and barre chords. elliott uses barre chords but open are
much easier to learn.

Verse 1:

The litebrite’s now black and white
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn’t right
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
The only maker that you’d want to meet
The dying man in a living room
Whose shadow paces the floor
He’ll take you out any open door

Chorus:

This is not my life
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
It’s not what I’m like
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn’t get things right
A fond farewell to a friend

Verse 2:
He said really I just wanna dance
Good and evil matched perfect it’s a great romance
I can deal with some psychic pain
If it’ll slow down my higher brain
Veins full of disappearing ink
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Disconnecting from the missing link

Chorus:
This is not my life
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
It’s not what I’m like
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn’t get things right
A fond farewell to a friend

Verse 3:

I see you’re leaving me
And taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried

Chorus:

This is not my life
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
It’s not what I’m like
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn’t get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
This is not my life
It’s just a fond farewell to a friend
