Song: Waltz #2 (XO)
Artist: Elliott Smith
Album: XO

To play this song exactly like on the album recording, you need to tune your guitar a 
full step down.
Of course there are two or three guitars used, but I´m just gonna write down the main 
chords and little bits so you can play the song pretty much on one guitar.

VERSE GUITAR REPEATS


Now she´s done and they´re calling someone
Such a familiar name
I´m so glad that my memory´s remote
Cos I´m doing just fine hour to hour, note to note
Here it is, the revenge to the tune
"You´re no good,
You´re no good, you´re no good, you´re no good"
Can´t you tell that it´s well understood?

VERSE GUITAR REPEATS

Looking out on the substitute scene
Still going strong
XO, Mom
It´s ok, it´s all right, nothing´s wrong
Tell Mr. Man with impossible plans to just leave me alone
In the place where I make no mistakes
In the place where I have what it takes

CHORUS GUITAR REPEATS

I´m never gonna know you now
But I´m gonna love you anyhow
I´m never gonna know you now
But I´m gonna love you anyhow
I´m never gonna know you now
But I´m gonna love you anyhow
