Tuning: D A D F# A D

4/4 Time  Tempo = Quarter note ~126 (I think) 

Listen to this song and you'll get the groove...
It's really pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
BTW... You can strum-pick the intro riff stuff...
Just play around with it, 'til it sounds right. 

Intro:


            Part A                        Part B

Intro: Play that funky thang up above!

Verse 1:

D7
My muffins are in the toaster 
I got my raspberry jam 
My grandfather was a sailor 
that came onto this land 

             G
and he was looking for gold, 
a pretty hand to hold, 
or some cards to fold. 
At least, that's what I was told. 

Intro riff Part A

Chorus:

A
Silver Lining 
G                              to intro riff
Silver Lining, where'd you go? 

Verse 2:

D7
Turn on my TV 
They got talking heads in space 
used to be so easy 
to have a little faith 

           G
I used to rely on luck 
To earn an honest buck 
I didn't feel so stuck 
I didn't limp around, like Jon Kruk. 

Intro riff Part A

Repeat Chorus

Whole Intro Riff

Bridge:

A 
I used to have hope 
G
Now we got soap on a rope 
A
I used to have dreams 
G
Now we got overpaid baseball teams 
G
We got grocery baggers, grafitti taggers, 
golf-ball shaggers, go team go. 

Repeat Intro riff Part A

Repeat Chorus

Whole Intro Riff

Verse 3:

D7 
My landlord knocks upon my door 
He's got that payday face 
I swear to God he should be payin me 
To live inside this place 

                   G
It's filled with sharks and fins 
whose double chins say 
Thicken your skin, child 
if you want to win 

Intro riff Part A

Repeat Chorus

Intro riff whole thing

Verse 4:

D7
I fix myself some herbal tea 
cause it's healthier they say 
well, healthier ain't half as fun 
I take a cold beer anyday 

                  G
I used to have dysfunctional fun 
in the cancerous sun 
with my co-dependent hon 
eatin greasy greasy hotdogs on a buttered up bun 

Intro riff Part A
Repeat Chorus (Play Part A and Chorus twice here)

He ends it on the record with some harmonic
stuff that seems to be on the G, A, and D chords
at the 5th, 7th, & 12th frets...Do what you want 
Standard Tuning Intro. Riff: sounds best fingerpicked

         Part A                     Part B
