Cubs In Five

Cubs In Five

Recently John stated on the forums that Cubs In Five was played in D, he just didn't have a guitar tuner at the time.
So, this is how I believe the song to be played, if you were to do it in D.
The timing is a little hard to catch on to at first, I suggest you listen to 
the song to get the rhythm. After that it's pretty simple, the verses and
choruses all follow the same riffs through to the end of the song.

~Note by ETX: Based on the 2013 NPR youtube version, the way JD plays the chorus 
is D Asus4 Em7 (022030) G rather than D Asus4 G Asus4~

Intro:
D-Em-C-G

Verse:
D                 Em                C                    G
    they're gonna find intelligent life up there on the moon
        D                 Em                C                    G
and the canterbury tales will shoot up to the top of the best seller list
    D                 Asus4
and stay there for 27 weeks

Chorus:
          D               Asus4
and the chicago cubs will beat every team in the league
         G                          Asus4            A
and the tampa bay bucs will make it all the way to january
    D                  Asus4
and i will love you again
       G                Asus4   A
i will love you, like i used to
D                  Asus4
i will love you again
       G                Asus4   A
i will love you, like i used to
 
the stars are gonna spell out the answers to tommorow's crosswords
and the phillips corporation will admit that they've made an awful mistake
and bill gates
will single handedly spearhead the heaven seventeen revival
 
and the chicago cubs will beat every team in the league
and the tampa bay bucs will take it all the way to the top
and i will love you again
i will love you, like i used to
and i will love you again
i will love you, like i used to
