                quick lay and say goodbye
the dave matthews band

recorded live at the roseland, nyc -- 1995

only dave matthews can take a song about a one night stand, in which
you are hooking up with your best friend, causing both of you to be
cheating on your significant others, and make it sound romantic.

because this is dave there is a *lot* of chord play... i did *not* write it
all down.  i've found that most people can't / won't read the transcriptions
anyway, and those who can actually read the transcriptions, don't need to
because they can figure it out for themsevles.

a hint though... he plays around with barre chords, a lot.

basic measures are these:
|  A   E   D   A  |  &  |  Bm  Bm  A   D  |  &  |  A   G   D   A  |

A - E - D - A  (x10)

              A                    E
so here we are tonight, you and i together
           D               A
the snow outside the fire bright
                A                       E
oh and in your eyes i can see what's on my mind
           D                     A
oh its this burning that's got me turning
     A             E
and fire burn on baby
        D          A

                     A                  E

        D                A
