Before You Were Born
by Toad the Wet Sprocket
from the _fear_ album

contributed by Ryan Houlette

It's the same basic chords the whole song.
Vary it by adding hammer-ons/pull-offs.
Listen to the album to get the strumming pattern.

D                 Dsus4  G          Gadd2?
How can it happen   that every time
D                       Dsus4      G                 Gadd2
You ask us this question the answer seems like a lie
D                              Dsus4 G                  Gadd2
You know what what we're saying  you know what it means
And it's always sincere god knows
       A          G
But it never gets through to where you need

Before you were born someone kicked in the door
There's no place for you here, stay back where you belong
Before you were born someone kicked in the door
You are not wanted here anymore

(repeat these patterns for the other verses and choruses and the 2nd solo)

[1st solo backing chords]

Em D Em D Em A D A G


Dsus4               Gadd2 (this isn't the right name for it, I know)
