                YOU COULD MAKE A KILLING (Aimee Mann)
--------------------------------------

This is on the "I'm with Stupid" album. All the following is written as if
played in G (at the knut). 


Album
-----
On the album this track is played in B (Capo 4th fret).


[Intro]:

|  G Em7 D F  |  C G D C  |  C C C C  |    x 2 


With this played over the top by heavily overdriven electric gtr:

   A -3------2-0---------3-------2-------
   E ------------3-----------------------

   A -3------2-0--------h--------0-------
   E ------------3-----0-3-----3---------


[Verse]:
G        Em7     D  (Dsus)  D    F          C       F    C 
There is nothing th - at    competes with habit
and I know, it's nei- ther  deep nor      tragic
simply   that    you  just  have to       have it


[Chorus]:
||            C      G         D  F  C  .||
|| so you can make a killing            .||    x3 (on the 3rd time, skip the F
                                                   and hold the last C 6
beats)


I wish I was both young and stupid
then I too could have the fun that you did
'til it was time to ?put it up, what you bid


so you could make a killing   x3 


I could follow you and search the rubble
or stay right  here and save myself the trouble 
or try to keep myself from seeing double


or i could make a killing . . .  x4

aahh aah etc.  (chords as for chorus)


Live
----

Live, Aimee plays this in Bb (Capo 3rd fret). The live arrangement is for
(mainly) acoustic guitar. It's basically the same as above, but with picking
like this: 


[Intro]:

3 bars (play once only, not like above):

First Bar:
       G               Em7                D                 F    F(add2)
    e--3-------------------------------------------2-2-2--------------------|
    B--0----------------------------3-----3--------3-3-3----1-----1-----h-p-|
    G--0------------0-----------0---0-----2--------2-2-2----2-----0----0-2-0|
    D--0----------0-------------2---------0-----------------3-----3---------|
    A-----------2-------2---------------------------------------------------|
    E-------------------0---------------------------------------------------|
beats  ^                ^                 ^                 ^                

2nd Bar:
       C          Am7/B G                  D                C
    e--------------------------------3-3-3------------2-2-2-----------0-0-0|
    B--------------------------------0-0-0------------3-3-2-----------1-1-1|
    G-(0)----------sl---0------------0-0-0------------2-2-2-----------0-0-0|
    D--2--------2-2-(0)-0------------------0-------------------------------|
    A--3--------3-3--2--2-----------------------------------3--------------|
    E-------------------3*-------------------------------------------------|
beats  ^                ^                  ^                ^                

3rd Bar:
       C                C                 C                 C             
    e-------------0-0-0-------------0-0-0------------0-0-0------------0-0-0|
    B-------------1-1-1-------------1-1-1------------1-1-1------------1-1-1|
    G-------------0-0-0-------------0-0-0------------0-0-0------------0-0-0|
    D----------------------------------------------------------------------|
    A--3----------------3-----------------3-----------------3--------------|
    E----------------------------------------------------------------------|
beats  ^                ^                 ^                 ^               

This is played as three 'phrases'   G Em7 D F C     G D C    C C C C, so hit 
the G in the second bar (Marked *) hard to make it sound like a new phrase.


Verse/Chorus

Chords as per album version. Picking is the root/bass note of each chord held
for about three-quarters of a beat followed by three quick strums of the top
three strings (like in the last bar of the intro of the live version). 


Only other difference from the CD is trills on the C and F of each line of the
verse: 


                C            F        C
             e -0---0--------1-------(0)--
             B -1---1--------1---h-p-(1)--
             G -0---0---h-p--2--0-2-0-----
             D -2---2--0-2-0-3--------2---
             A -3---3-----------------3---
             E ---------------------------
  . . . . . .  habit
 . . . . . .  tragic
 . . . . . . . have it     . . .etc
