                "Last Goodbye"
Jeff Buckley
Tuning: Normal


This slide part is repeated twice.

Right here the guitar comes in, and starts playing two chords over and over
again.  It sounds closest to me if you use first position chords for the
intro, and the barre chords the rest of the song.  The two chords at the
beginning are G and the D.  Everyone knows them, but I will tab them just
to be thorough.

    G    D

The main bassline comes in here.  It is a series of hammer -ons.  On a
guitar it looks like this:


This bassline is repeated twice and then the guitar joins in, playing A, C,
G, and D chords to match:

     A       C       G       D

Listen to the song to pick up the strumming for this part.  There is some
string muting between the strums during the A and G chords. (This is also
the progression during the chorus.)

Right before the change to the next chord progression, instead of switching
to the C chord from the A, just keep playing the A chord for two beats.
Then instead of switching from the G to the D chord, just play the G for
two beats.

Alright, here^Òs where I get a little hazy on this song, but I might as well
post what I think the song does.

Jeff changes to a different chord progression.  I think that it is A, Bm,
G, E, G, A, but I am not sure.  I just play the whole thing in barre
chords, so try it out and let me know what you think.

The rest of the song is a mix and match of the chord progressions above.
Just listen to it while you play.

Here are as much of the lyrics as I can understand.  Jeff^Òs words kind of
blend t gether when he hits the high notes, so these are probably wrong,
but oh well.

This is our last goodbye,
I hate to see the love between us die.
But it^Òs over.
Just do this and then I^Òll go,
You gave me more to live for, 
more than you^Òll ever know.

This is our last goodbye.
Must I dream and always see your face?
Why can^Òt we overcome this and more?
Baby, maybe it^Òs just because I didn^Òt know you at all.

Kiss me, please kiss me
Kiss me out of desire,
baby, no consolation.
Oh you know what makes me so angry,
Is that I know that in time,
I^Òll only make you cry
This is our last goodbye.

Did you say No, this can^Òt happen to me?
Did you wait for the phone to call? (?)
Is there a voice occurin^Ò in the back of your mind,
Saying baby, please?
I didn^Òt know him at all,
I didn^Òt know him at all,
I didn^Òt know him^Å
