Cubs In Five

tabbed by Matt Hall (death_list5@hotmail.com) and Rosa

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 Tune your guitar a full step down (DGCFAd) or transpose the chords to C to play along with the recording.

The timing is a little hard to catch on to at first, each note in the intro as written responds to a very fast
"1 2+3" count of strumming (this pattern continues in the verses).

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

Intro:
D D D Em C C G 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
D                            Em   C                          G
and the phillips corporation will admit that they've made an awful mistake
    D                      Em       C         G
and bill gates will single handedly spearhead 
    D                 Asus4
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
