Transcribed for Guitar World magazine by Jeff Perrin

quarter note= 150

Figure 1 (played three times at beginning)

Third time, the last note is cut into a half note and
rhythm plays A-based barre chords at faster strum

Figure 2 (played 2 1/2 times)

End Fill for Figure 2
D h /\/\

Chorus 1:

E Em
All I can say is that my

D Dsus4 D
Life is pretty plain

A G5 E E7 E E7 E
I like watching the puddles gather rain

And all I can do is just

D Dsus4 D
Pour some tea for two

And speak my point of view

G E E E7
But it's not sane

It's not sane
**Figure 1 then Figure 2 played with verses and rhythm strum**

Verse 1

I just want someone to say to me

No oh oh oh

I'll always be there when you wake

**End fill for Figure two then Verse two**

You know I'd like to
Keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made.
(I'll have it made)

**Figure 1 once**

2nd Chorus
(And I) don't understand why I

D Dsus4 D
sleep all day.

A G5 E E7 E E7 E
and I start to complain that there's no rain.

and all I can do is read a

D Dsus4 D
book to stay awake

It rips my life away but it's a great escape **Lead plays Figure 1
four times with double
E E E whole strums on each
escape escape escape enunciation**

(solo) [email if you want it posted]

3rd Chorus
**This chorus is played with only one strum per chord
except for G which is six eighth note strums with eighth
rests before the first and fourth strum**

Chords as above

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
You don't like my point of view you think that I'm insane
It's not sane It's not sane

(As the old saying goes....Everybody together!!!)

Second verse same as the first!! (I couldn't resist)

(end solo) w/
I'll have it made (I'll have it made)
I'll have it made (I'll have it made)
I'll have it made (I'll have it made)
No no no
You know I'm really gonna really gonna
have it made (I'll have it made)
(I'll have it made) (I'll have it made)

End with Figure one fading.

Thanks for listening....I'm outta here

Hi, I was just screwing around with my guitar and I came up with an
alternate intro to blind melon's "no rain" that's not in the archive.
This one's a little more full and folky, if you like that sort of thing.
Also, this is the first time I've tried to write in rhythm. bear with
me here. The measures are kind of accurate; the spacing of the notes

kapo the scond fret. Notation is relative to the kapo (a 3 is really a 5
and such...)

Cmaj Dmaj Cmaj
|-0--------------|---------3---2--|-0--------------| repeat one more
|---3---1----3-1-|--3----3--------|---3---1----3-1-| time (the rhythm
|-----2----------|-----2----------|-----2----------| is practically
|-0--------2-----|--0------2-2----|-0--------2-----| immortal) & then
|-------3------3-|----------------|-------3------3-| your guess is as
|----------------|----------------|----------------| good as mine. Try
something based
on the other tabs
posted here!

The the verses and solo are pretty easy. Just play what the others have
modified for a kapo (instead of E major play D major and such...)
