    I Didnt Understand

    Elliott Smith

Alright, so this isn't in the key of the original, but this one sounds really good. In
you can move your capo almost anywhere on the neck and this tune will sound really pretty.

Capo 3rd Fret


D               C                               Em
Thought you'd be looking for the next in line to love

Em                G            C
Then ignore, put out, and put away

    D              C                            Em
And so you'd soon be leaving me alone like I'm supposed to be

            G             C
Tonight tomorrow and every day

D                                   G
 There's nothing here that you'll miss

     C               G        C             Em
I can guarantee you this is a cloud of smoke

D                  G
Trying to occupy space

C              G     C                   Em
What a fucking joke, what a fucking joke.


D               C                             Em
 I waited for a bus to separate the both of us

                  G            C
and take me off far away from you

       D              C                                Em
Cus my feelings never change a bit, I always feel like shit

                               G        C
I don't know why, I guess that I just do

D                            G
 You once talked to me about love

C                     G   C                 Em
 You painted pictures of, a never never land

D                           G
I could've gone to that place,

      C               G     C              G
 But I didn't understand, I didn't understand, I didn't understand

I hope that helped. The rhythm can get kind of tricky, and I tried to place the letters
the chords as close to the words they hit on as possible.

My first tab, enjoy : )
