Crash Test Dummies
TAB for Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmmm (Crash Test Dummies)
(CAPO ON 3RD FRET)

        This is the way I play this song on my accoustic. The following
tab is based on the chords given by Liz Myers.

        For each chord written below, play the following sequence:

C               Am              G               F
---------0----- ---------0----- ---------3----- ---------1-----
---1-----1--1-- ---1-----1--1-- ---3-----3--3-- ---1-----1--1--
---0--------0-- ---2--------2-- ---4--------4-- ---2--------2--
------2-------- ------2-------- ------5-------- ------3--------
---3----------- ---0----------- --------------- ---------------
--------------- --------------- ---3----------- ---1-----------

G#              Em              Bm
---------4----- ---------0----- ---------2-----
---4-----4--4-- ---0-----0--0-- ---3-----3--3--
---5--------5-- ---0--------0-- ---4--------4--
------6-------- ------2-------- ------4--------
--------------- --------------- ---------------
---4----------- ---0----------- ---2-----------

Dm              Cmaj7(Add F)
---------1----- ---------0-----
---3-----3--3-- ---0-----0--0--
---2--------2-- ---0--------0--
------0-------- ------3--------
---0----------- ---3-----------
--------------- ---------------

So if the chords are, say, Am G G C you should play:

Am            G              G               C
---------0-------------3--------------3---------------0-----
---1-----1--0----3-----3--3-----3-----3--0------1-----1--1--
---2--------0----4--------4-----4--------0------0--------0--
------2-------------5--------------5---------------2--------
---0--------------------------------------------3-----------
-----------------3--------------3---------------------------

            ^  Notice these differences  ^

The differences written above are for transitions between chords.

Intro:

Em Bm Em Bm F G F G

Am   G                 C   C
Once    there was this kid who
F           C            G#               C
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
    F    F          G    C
But when he finally came back
G   C    F               C          G            G       G
His hair had turned from black into bright white
   G#               C        
He said that it was from when
    G#               Cmaj7(Add F) Cmaj7(Add F) F F
The cars had smashed soooo                     hard

CHORUS:

Em        Bm         Em        Bm           F    G    F    G
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm, Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm

Am   G                C    C
Once   there was this girl who
F              C               G#           C
Wouldn't go to change with the girls in the change room
    F    C              G    C  
But when   they finally made her
G    C    F                C        G    G    G
They saw    birthmarks all over her body
    G#               C
She couldn't quite explain it
    G#             Cmaj7(Add F) Cmaj7(Add F) F F
They'd always just been                      there

BRIDGE:

Dm        Dm  C    G        G
Both girl and boy were glad
Dm        Dm   C      G             F          G
One kid had it worse than that

       Am   G             C   C
'Cause then   there was a boy whose
F                C                 G#           C
Parents made him come right home directly after school
    F    C            G     C
And when they went to their church
G    C     F                 C        G            G       G
They shook   and lurched all over the church floor
   G#               C
He couldn't quite explain it
       G#          Cmaj7(Add F) Cmaj7(Add F) F     F
They'd always just gone                      there


PLAY CHORUS TWICE

Outro is the same progression as the bridge. As my guitar doesn't have a
built-in fade-out :-), I end this song like this:

                                    C
                                    ---
                          (slower)  -1-
Dm Dm C G Em Bm Em Bm     F       G -0-        Let ring the last chord.
                                    ---
                                    -3-
                                    ---
