Frank Black and the Catholics
Song: Smoke Up
Album: Pistolero
Tabbed by: Derek (ProverbialCereal)

VERSE:
 Em             F# G           D      
   Stone was in me  when i was rougher

          G         Em               C   Cm          G
   Now my power has suffered in this hour, Of my oversleep

 Em               F#   G             D   
   Alone with the beast and my skull choppers

           G           Em
   Now i'm just a name dropper

          C             Cm           G
   And I'm bust in these deep slumberweeds

 Em             F# 
   Stone was in me

BRIDGE:
   Bm             Gmaj7
     It's so damn late

   Em             Gmaj7
     It's so damn dark

   Bm              Gmaj7
     Pull up those drapes

                Bm                Gmaj7
     Hey, let's see just where we are (here it comes)


CHORUS:
   D/A*  E/B*  F#/C#*  B  A

   D/A               E/B  F#/C#
     I finally woke up

   B       A
    That's right

               G           A              D/A  E/B  F#/C#  B A
   'Cause I've got to make something work out

   D/A                  E/B  F#/C#
      I sent some smoke up

   B       A 
    That's right

               G           A              D/A  E/B  F#/C#  B A           
   'Cause I've got to make something work out
