Artist: The Ataris

Song Title: The Last Song I Ever Write About A Girl


Tabbed by Richard McCulloch on 19/04/02, updated 21/04/02


This song kicks ass! The intro and verse are definitely

100% correct, and the chorus/interlude part sounds ok

when you play along with the cd, though there may be a

powerchord or two missing from there. Sorry if there is,

but if you spot something like this, PLEASE e-mail me

so I can fix it. My address is at the end of this tab


Anyway, enjoy.





F5| C5 | C#5 | G#5 | G5 | D#5 | A#5 | E5+ |








nb. * = let note ring


INTRO/MAIN RIFF (played over the power chords below)




G|---------------------------------------------------------------------| x 2






F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G5









A broken heart again today...






F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

A broken heart again today


F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

The flowers that I gave to you have withered all a - way


F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

Just when I opened up my heart


F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

The one you used to love came and ripped it right a - part




C#5 D#5

Why do I never seem to learn that


C#5 D#5

love is wrong and girls are fucking evil


A#5 C#5

I guess I'll never figure out


A#5 C#5 D#5 E5+

What womankind is all about


MAIN RIFF WITH VERSE POWERCHORDS x 2 [Though the first bar of this

that you play, miss out the F5 at the start, because it's just the

riff on it's own playing here, but then come in with the C5 in the

usual place - listen to the cd if you're unsure what I' talking





F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

I heard your voice again today


F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

I'm scarred by all the lies that were once promises you'd made


F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

I lie in bed awake at night


F5 C5 C#5 G#5 G

And wonder what went wrong or even more just what went right




C#5 D#5

Why do I never seem to learn that


C#5 D#5

love is wrong and girls are fucking evil


A#5 C#5

I guess I'll never figure out


A#5 C#5 D#5 E5+

What womankind is all about


VERSE POWERCHORDS x 2 [This is played the same way as the last time

- by missing out the first F5 powerchord, but instead of having the

riff on its here, the bass plays on its own for that part, until you

come in again on the C5]



Then the outro is pretty shitty to be honest - just a load of

distorted noise and random drum clashes, so my advice to you

if you want to play this song in your band is to make up a

new ending, you'll be all the more talented for it!




I've actually just thought now that it would be easier to play the song

in dropped d tuning, as you could play some of the chords with just one

or two fingers instead of three [For those of you who play powerchords

with two fingers, STOP! Playing with three gives you a much fuller sound

and reduces any muting that you might get]. If you want me to explain this

to you in more detail (the bit about playing the song in dropped d), then

mail me at the address below, I'd appreciate the feedback.
