Tab Mapper

The tab mapper is a handy little tool that will render a guitar tab file with graphic chord diagrams displayed alongside. This comes in handy for people who just don't have every single chord shape memorized. Just plug in the web site address of a valid .tab or .crd file and hit "Go". In general, the tab mapper does a better job with printer friendly URLs. If there is more than one way to play a chord, the tab mapper will choose the most common shape. To see other fingerings, click on the chord diagram and you will be taken to the chord calculator.

Intro: D - Em (x3)


    D                   
You kissed me on the forehead
          Em
Now these kisses give me consussion
D
We were love at first sight
         Em
Now this crush is crushing
  F#m                                              Em
I retraced your steps through the city of romance lazily
  F#m
I took to the desert with your harshest words
         Em
And they saved me



     D                        Em
I'll bail you out again; I've got the readies
    D                         Em
I'm not a child; I know we're not going steady
     F#m
Your pain's gigantic
                       Em
But not as big as your ego
  F#m
I promise not to abandon you
              Em
Please let me go


Interlude:

D - Em (x2)


  D
I harbored worried feelings
               Em
Like they were worth protecting
D
You say I'm too kind and sentimental
               Em
Like you could catch affection
        F#m
In your eyes there's a sadness enough
                   Em
To kill the both of us
          F#m
Are those eyes overrated?
                                Em
They make me want to give up on love



      D
I'll brace myself for the loneliness
            Em
Say hello to feeling that I detest
     D
This maudlin carrer must come to an end
        Em
I don't want to be sad again
      D
This maudlin career must come to an end
        Em
I don't want to be sad again
      D
This maudlin career must come to an end
        Em
I don't want to be sad again


Interlude:

F#m - Em (x2)


      D
This maudlin career must come to an end
        Em
I don't want to be sad again
      D
This maudlin career must come to an end
        Em
I don't want to be sad again
