Song: A Smart Kid (Acoustic)
Artist: Porcupine Tree
Album: Stupid Dream
Year: 1999

Tabbed by: andback@gmail.com


Here's a great song from PT's '99 album Stupid Dream. Transcribed using
the recording of Steven Wilsons live solo performance in Tel-Aviv. This
tab is not a 100% accurate representation of the studio version but rather
a cool way to play it acoustically.

Enjoy!

Stranded here on planet earth
It's not much but it could be worse
Everything's free here, there's no crowds

Winter lasted five long years
No sun will come again I fear
Chemical harvest was sown


Chorus:

Dsus2    Am             Fmaj7        
             And I will wait for you
   
Dsus2    Am           Fmaj7
             Until the sky is blue

Dsus2    Am             Fmaj7
             And I will wait for you
   
Dsus2    Am           Fmaj7
             What else can I do?


Verse 3-4: (play the chords while keeping the riff in there)

Am                    C
   A spaceship from another star
   
Am                            C
   They ask me where all the people are

               F            Em
   What can I tell them?

I tell them I'm the only one
There was a war but I must have won
Please take me with you
 

Chorus


end on Fmaj7
