EFFINGTON

BEN FOLDS

 

Album: WAY TO NORMAL

 

Tabbed by Nicolás Levy Renaud

 

STANDARD TUNING - CAPO 5 (Scroll down for no capo version)

 

NO CHORD:

If there's a god,

he's laughing at us

And our football team.

 

INTRO: C

 

VERSE 1:

C

Effington could be a wonderful f'ing place

I can see it from the highway

And I'm wondering

C

Are they f'ing in their yards

f'ing in their cars

f'ing in the trailers and the backroads and the parking lots of Effington

Making my way to Normal, Illinois.

 

C

 

VERSE 2:

C

Maybe I should ditch this little white rental on the interstate

And start a new f'ing life...in effington

C

I could change my name, grow a beard, start a family

Or I could just keep on moving on, moving on, moving on, moving on

Not stop 'til I get to Normal.

 

CHORUS 1:

Am G F C G C

VERSE 3:

And then the people who live in Normal

Can buy the movies that I'll make in Effinghton

That's what normal people do

Normal people do it too

Normal people do it
