Barenaked Ladies

Off the Hook

 

This is a favorite of mine and I couldn't find a tab of it anywhere,

so I figured it out. I made this tab from the Demo version of the

song. Listen to the song of the timing.

I recommend playing the C chord as a barre chord in A formation

everywhere aside from where it specifies open.

 

G Em Bm

All around the room your things are placed

G

And next to you he fills the space

Em Bm

And so it seems your saving grace is only saving face

G Em Bm

The pictures of the two of you on holiday, on honeymoon

G Em

You thought that he was wanting you,

Bm

But he was only wanting you to

A Bm C F

Let him off the hook

 

G Em Bm G Em Bm

 

G Em Bm

He was your imaginary friend,

Bm G

You were partners til the end

Em Bm

Then something bends, and then it breaks, your worst mistake

G Em Bm

Accepting enemies on bended knees; a litany of tragedies,

G Em Bm

You're vexed, it seems you're hexed and after sex he expects

A Bm C F

You'll let him off the hook til

G Em D C (open)

Something that you heard while you were sleeping left you

G Em D C

Shaken while he stirred. When you awaken you will

G Em A Bm C F G Em Bm G Em Bm

Make him eat his words right off the hook

 

G Em Bm

The credit card receipts, the dirty sheets

G

The souvenirs of men who cheat

Em Bm

It all makes sense - with each offense

 

You wanted to believe him

G Em Bm

He could get away with murder one,

G

And you would clean the smoking gun

Em Bm

With every crime, you bought each line,

 

But not this time, you'll make him

A Bm C F

Eat his words cause

 

G Em D C(open)

Something that you heard while you were sleeping left you

G Em D

Shaken while he stirred

C(open)

When you awaken you will

G Em A Bm C F

Make him eat his words right off the hook

 

G Em Bm G Em Bm

Every Time, Hook and line

G Em Bm G Em A Bm C F

Every time, Hook and line

 

G Em D C(open)

Something that you heard while you were sleeping left you

G Em D

Shaken while he stirred

C(open)

When you awaken you will

G Em A Bm C F

Make him eat his, make him eat his

G Em D

Words while he's alone,

C(open)

Cause you won't be around and

G Em A Bm C F G Em D C(open)

From now on the phone stays off the hook

 

G Em D C

Hook and line,

 

G Em A Bm C F G
