Blind Melon
Time (Guitar chord)

#

"Time"
Blind Melon
from the album Blind Melon
Words by Shannon Hoon
Music by Blind Melon

transcribed by Travis Miguez (tre@unixg.ubc.ca)

Other transcriptions done by me: Still Remains -S.T.P.
All the Things I Wasn't - Grapes of Wrath

*Blind Melon riffs are hard to transcribe so I just did the bulk of the song so it sounds good if you play it on an acoustic guitar. The end of the song is anybody's guess and I have never heard it done the same way twice so improvise or just end it on the Am chord.

Guitar like Intro Part with the C fill (i.e. the ooooh part)

Am E
All these people here they won't
leave me alone and we
need a little time to ourselves

And half the reasons why I'm
sketchin all the time
The result of this life in hell

F (N.C.)-let F ring
But oh well, I think its time

(Strum Pattern like first 2 bars above but with E in second bar)

Am E
My faith is falling like the
leaves from a tree
Am E C
The pockets both take it away

The sun warms my body as I'm
sitting on a swing watchin'
columbus clouds bring in the rain

F (N.C.)-let F ring
But Oh well, I think its time

(Riff 1 four times (timing for words follow chord pattern))
(Am) (F) (E) (Am)......
its time to go

Chorus

(1 3 ) (1 2 3 4) - Strumming Pattern
D A
My mind is playing tricks on
me all the time
D A E
To let you know that I am real

And all the worries you build
up inside your soul
The ones that make your world stand still..

(N.C.) - (let E ring)
Mean you can feel

(Riff 1) x 4 -lyric timing as above
That its time to go (on first time)

Am (strum)
(Am) x3 (E)
Base part: -------||----------------
---0-2-||-----x-----x----
-0-----||-2-2-x-2-2-x-2-2
-------||----------------

Are you fed up, are you fed up with me
Do you think that you could do better?

Partly Muted Chords:
(A) (E)
Five fed up faces with the
itch to kill the king
(A) (E) (C)
Blood red sunrise and a breath to air that's clean

I drink from the faucet from the
porch I take a pee. I
(A) (E) C - loud
look at you through the bushes, where you can't see me

Chorus 2 (Play like chorus 1)

I laugh and slip into
another state of mind
To let you know that I am real

And all the worries that build
up inside your soul
The ones that make your world stand still....

(N.C.)-let E ring
Mean you can feel

(Riff 1)
That its time to go.
