Ok, here’s how he plays the little sliding thing after strumming the G1 for a while.


For that little riff/chord progressions, I’m writing it as Fig 1 so as to make

G1 Fig 1
I’m a color reporter (Gross city on the 409)
G1 Fig 1
But the city’s been bled white (White city on the yellow line)
G1 Fig 1
And the doctors orders (Drinking till destruction is just a waste of time)
G1 Fig 1 Fig 1
Drinks all night, to take away this curse, but it makes me feel much worse.
Bled whi.….ite
G1 Fig 1
So I wait for the F-Train (White city on the yellow line)
G1 Fig 1
And connect through a friend of mine (White city to a friend of mine)
G1 Fig 1
To a yesterday dream (Yesterday dream is just a waste of time)
G1 Fig 1 Fig 1
Because I’ll have to be high, to drag the sunset down, and paint this paling town
Bled whi..…ite
So here he comes with the blank expression
Especially for me because he knows I feel the same
Because happy and sad come in quick succession
I’m never going to become what you became
G1 Fig 1
Don’t you dare disturb me (Don’t complicate my peace of mind)
G1 Fig 1
While I’m balancing my past (Don’t complicate my peace of mind)
G1 Fig 1
Because you can’t help or hurt me (Fading me baby is just a wast of time)
G1 Fig 1
Like it already has, I may not seem quite right
Fig 1
But I’m not fked, not quite
Bled whi..…ite
Bled whi..…ite
