This song is in 4,4 timing. 
The intro, although may sound daunting, is piss really. 
I watched Chris play it on the weekend, so I knew where 
to play the lead, and then I figured it from there...so there !!

Military Strongmen - Jebediah 
hurl abuse by way of cc ([email protected]) or daniel 
([email protected])... thanks be to andrew loch for corrections.. yup 
andrew.. now everyone knows you?re a closet jebediah fan... 
The basic format for any Jebediah song is a recurring riff over some power 
chords. So here?s the riff... 
e------------------------ 
B--4--------------------- 
G----5------5-----5------ 
D------4-6----4-6-------- 
A------------------------ 
E------------------------ 
This is played over a few times before the rest of the band kick in and 
it?s played during the chorus too.  
Ok.. and here?s the chord progression: 
e--1--|--4--|--4--|--2--|-- 
B--1--|--4--|--4--|--2--|-- 
G--3--|--6--|--5--|--3--|-- 
D--3--|--6--|--6--|--4--|-- 
A--1--|--4--|--6--|--4--|-- 
E--1--|--4--|--4--|--2--|-- 
That?s played for the verse and the chorus 
VERSE 
I'm on parade, you don't say  
Why can't you see that  
Keeping my feelings at bay 
Why can't you see that, when  
CHORUS 
When you're around  
You just get me down  
I'm better off without you  
VERSE 
All of the years add up to 
Why can't you see that  
Something has happened to you  
Why can't you see that, when  
CHORUS 
  It's not me  
  It can't be  
  I'd rather leave  
  Its getting hard  
  To be a part  
  Of what is around  
Is this the situation of the time?  
If so then you can have yours I want mine  
     		C#			 
I know there's something better you could be  
Now I am past caring completely  
CHORUS
