Sits down then leans over and says something like, "This is going to sound a

I have one thing to say before I turn and I walk away

This is gonna sound a little impulsive, this is gonna sound a little insane

I know you don't know me yet, but you and I, we will be together someday

Ever since when I first saw you, sitting on your car outside

You asked for a cigarette, I couldn't stop staring at your eyes

Ever since when I first saw you, looking bored in that plastic chair

With the lights in the office around you

Those blond streaks they look so pretty in your black hair

"in a real intense way....kinda like Perry Farrell, you know intense

but sensitive. Anyway, I told my bitchy sister about it and she just

laughed at me. I told her I was really excited about this, that I have a

really good feeling about this guy.....I told her that this could be the guy"

 

Suggestion by Mike Mastro (mike_mastro@hotmail.com)

 

I was looking at some of your Everclear tabs and the intro to unemployed

boyfriend is a little off. The first and second chord is right ( G & c9 ) as

well as the fourth (back to the C9) but the third one has to go. It had me

for a little while but i knew it was an Em of some sort. Try playin an open

Em and the 1st string on the 2nd fret together then go to the C9. I'm pretty

sure thats it.

 

Suggestion by Kevin Ferguson (fergu106@pilot.msu.edu)

 

(Kevin had a similar suggestion to Mike; He thought the third chord was wrong

and suggested the chord below.)

 

e|-0-|

B|-7-|

G|-0-|

D|-7-|

A|-7-|

E|-x-|

 

Its a messed up chord, but to me it sounds perfect with the record!

Suggestion by Kyd Burdette (kburde@bellsouth.net)

 

Hey....that chord in the song that everyone is in such an uproar over is

as follows:

X54055 NOT X99777

 

Suggestion from Hugh Yik (hyik@nb.sympatico.ca)

 

Hey Jason!

I noticed many ppl adding suggestions on your site for this tab the

third chord . I used to think its was some sorta "B" or "D" too? but i

figured it is a "Em9" as shown below-->

 

e|--2--|

B|--0--|

G|--0--|

D|--2--|

A|--2--|

E|--X--|

 

I'm almost certain that that is the correct chord.

Peace - hugh

 

Suggestion from Scott Ryan (electra@iprimus.com.au)

 

Hey buddy, My name is Scott Ryan from Tasmania, Australia and i have

figured out the exact chord for the song.

Instead of that Bm you have tabbed it is actually this.

 

e|-7-|

B|-7-|

G|-0-|

D|-6-|

A|-7-|

E|-0-|

 

it is absolutely perfect

seeya

Scott Ryan

 

Suggestion from "Moo The Magic Cow" (moothemagiccow@zdnetonebox.com)

 

I saw all the chords for the intro down on the bottom, and only one made it close,

the 076077 at the very bottom. I worked along with this (totally by ear, I heard

the song earlier today, it was stuck in my head and i wanted to learn it) and took

out my electric and messed with it. You can tell the note on the D string

is off, and the one on the high E sticks out too much. This is what I've

done, please evaluate it and see what sounds closest of everyone's interpretation:

 

EADGBe

x7x075

 

P.S. A lot of the chords near the top of the end are way off.

 

Suggestion from Dustin Weaver (dustinweaver@hotmail.com)

 

Anyway, I wanted to clear up this mess with the third chord in the intro

of Unemployed Boyfriend. None of the chords listed are right, and some aren't even close.

The chord is: 075077

Just the G shape with a slight modification!

Thanks.
