Off Adore (1998)
Written by Billy Corgan
Eb 

This is really a piano song but I was able to arrange
these parts for guitar. James does simply chords and
the solo on his electric.

Intro:

Piano; James´ chords underneath the tab.

James continues:

  A  Bm   A  Bm   A  Bm  C#m  D   E
|-0-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-4-|-2-|-0-|

Verse:

F#m        C#m
Whenever I run, 

F#m               C#m
wherever I run to you lost one

F#m        C#m
It´s never done, 

Bm           E
just hanging on


Pre - Chorus:

Now Billy turns to the chords, while Jame does the lead, it´s doubled by
a second Piano

D

F#m                 D
The past has let me be

F#m              D    
Returning as if dream

F#m       E  Bm
Shattered as belief 


Always between the lyrics:

James             3x

Chorus:

No drums and bass, just piano, soft guitar 
and Billy´s voice.




Then the part with the "But for the grace of love…" vocals:

  A Gmaj7 B Amaj7   Fmaj7
|-0-|-2-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-0-|-0-|-0-|-2-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-0-|-0-|
|-2-|-0-|-4-|-2-|-0-|-1-|-2-|-2-|-0-|-4-|-2-|-0-|-1-|-2-|

|-0-|-x-|-2-|-0-|-x-|-3-|-0-|-0-|-x-|-2-|-0-|-x-|-3-|-0-|
|---|-3-|---|---|-3-|---|---|---|-3-|---|---|-3-|---|---|



The Pre – Chorus and the Chorus again and the Interlude:

|-0-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-4-|-2-|-2-|-2-|-1-|-1-|-2-|-2-|-1-|-1-|
|-2-|-3-|-2-|-3-|-2-|-3-|-5-|-3-|-2-|-2-|-1-|-1-|-2-|-2-|-1-|-1-|

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

repeat this several times while Billy´s doing the chord 
progression over the vocals "But for the grace…":

  A Gmaj7 B Amaj7   Fmaj7
|-0-|-2-|-2-|-0-|-2-|-0-|-0-|-0-|
|-2-|-0-|-4-|-2-|-0-|-1-|-2-|-2-|

|-2-|-0-|-4-|-2-|-0-|-3-|-2-|-2-|
|-0-|-x-|-2-|-0-|-x-|-3-|-0-|-0-|
|---|-3-|---|---|-3-|---|---|---|


Then there´s the Pre – Chorus, the 
third time, Heavily distorted and
finally the Outro:

soft delay let off distortion

same chords as in the verses and then Billy plays:

  A  Bm   A  C#m  A  Bm  C#m  D   E
|-0-|-2-|-0-|-4-|-0-|-2-|-4-|-2-|-0-|
|-2-|-3-|-2-|-5-|-2-|-3-|-5-|-3-|-0-|
|-2-|-4-|-2-|-6-|-2-|-4-|-6-|-2-|-1-|
|-2-|-4-|-2-|-6-|-2-|-4-|-6-|-0-|-2-|
|-0-|-2-|-0-|-4-|-0-|-2-|-4-|---|-2-|
|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|-0-|

James´ Outro lead:

|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--2/4~/7/9~---9\7~\4\2~---2/4~\7/4~---6~~---|
|--------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------|

Piano ends the song with an Fminor chord played over and over.

What a song! That´s it!
