"Don't be There"
by Switchfoot

To get the sound that Jon gets on the record, hit the low E string first, then strum a hard E chord
and mute all the strings with a slap, then quickly move your middle and ring finger over to play an
A2, keeping your pointer finger on the G# (third string, first fret).  Pull off on the A2 and let the
guitar resonate.

lower case letters=bass string pluck       upper case letters=chord    ()=pull off

Don't be there     Don't be there
Bsus4             A2
Cause I'm on my way

And I've already gone       over
And I'm on my way, yeah

I can't  recall myself how I went down
      Bsus4 A2      Bsus4           e  E  A2  ()
Did I get shot or shoot myself

I'm down here      I'm down here
And You're way up there
But that doesn't hurt    Badly
But it stings right here

I can't recall myself how I went down
Did I get shot or shoot myself?
          Bsus4                  Cm11
And I won't pretend there's nothing there
            A2                       e          E  A2  ()
You be around and I'll be square

If You're a rose, then I'm the thorn
That's in your side
And does that hurt    Badly
Cause it burns right here

I can't recall myself how I went down
Did I get shot or shoot myslef
(same progression as "and I won't pretent . . .)
I'd like to say "hello"  I'd like to say I care                Bsus4
I'd like to let you know nothing here's the same with me    Nothing here's the same


I can't recall myself how I went down
Did I get shot or shoot myself
And I won't pretent there's nothing there
You be around and I'll be square
Don't be around  Don't be there
Don't be there
