The Chords: C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj7sus4 Cadd9 (C9 without the 7th) E--------0------0--------0----------1-----------0-- B--------1------0--------1----------0-----------3-- G--------0------0--------3----------0-----------0-- D--------2------2--------2----------2-----------2-- A--------3------3--------3----------3-----------3-- E-------------------------------------------------- F Fmaj7 E--------1-------0--- B--------1-------1--- G--------2-------2--- D--------3-------3--- A--------3-------0--- E--------1-------0--- There's a little riff between a couple of the lines, and in the intro, that goes like this, Riff 1: Cmaj7sus4 Cmaj7 Cadd9 F E------1---1---0---0---0---1-- B------0---0---0---0---3---1-- G------0---0---0---0---0---2-- D------2---2---2---2---2---3-- A------3---3---3---3---3---3-- E--------------------------1-- The Song: Intro: C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj7sus4 Cmaj7 Cadd9 F Fmaj7 C (Essentially, the verses are just sung over the intro, but I wrote them out anyway) First verse: C Cmaj7 C7 Riff 1 Don't want to be an actor, pretending on a stage (F) Fmaj7 C Don't want to be a writer, with my thoughts out on a page C Cmaj7 C7 Riff 1 Don't want to be a painter, 'cause everyone comes to look (F) Fmaj7 C Don't want to be anything, where my life's an open book F C I dream it's true F C And I'll see it through C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj7sus4 Cmaj7 Cadd9 F Fmaj7 If I could be (if I could beeeeee) wast - ing my time C with you Second Verse (same chords): Don't want to be a farmer, working in the sun Don't want to be an outlaw, always on the run Don't want to be a climber, reaching for the top Don't want to be anything where I don't know when to stop I dream it's true And I'll see it through If I could be (if I could beeeee) wasting my time with you Chorus: Eb Bb F C So if I'm inside your head Eb Bb F C Don't believe what you might have read Eb Bb F C You'll see what I might have said Eb Bb To hear it F Gm Bb Come waste your time with me (repeat several times)...

As always, any comments, corrections, suggestions or modifications would be welcome and greatly appreciated. Enjoy! Evan S. Borenstein Evan3@mail.idt.net "WASTE" by Phish Anastasio/ Marshall from Billy Breathes (c)1996 Who Is She? music, BMI CHORDS: (I Don't know chord names are correct) C: 032010 Cmaj7: 032000 C9: 032030 Cmaj11: 032001 F(i): 133211 F(ii): 081010108 Fm: 133111 Gm: 355333 Bb: 013331 or 688766 Eb: 068886 INTRO: C, Cmaj7, C7, Cmaj11, C9, F, Fm, C VERSE 1: C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj11, Cmaj7, C9** Don't wanna be an actor pretendin on the stage F Fm C --> Don't wanna be a writer with my thoughts out on a page C Cmaj7 C7 Cmaj11, Cmaj7, C9 Don't wanna be a painter because everyone comes to look F Fm C Don't wanna be anything where my life is an open book BRIDGE 1: F Fm C I Dream it's true F Fm C But I'd see it through C Cmaj7 C7 cmaj11 Cmaj7 C9 F Fm C If I could beeeeee wastin my time with you VERSE 2: Don't wanna be a farmer, workin in the sun Don't wanna be an outlaw, always in the run Don't wanna be a climber, reachin for the top Don't wanna be anything where I don't know when to stop I dream it's true But I'd see it through If I could be wastin my time with you BRIDGE 2: Eb Bb F C So If I'mmmmm inside your head Eb Bb F C Don't believe what you might have read Eb Bb F C Eb Bb You'll see what I might have read to hear it CHORUS: F Gm Bb F(ii) Come waste your time with me 2X Repeat second bridge: So if I'm inside your head Don't believe what you might have read You'll see what I might have said To hear it Come waste your time with me NOTES abd TIPS: 1) ** the Cmaj11, Cmaj7, C9 part in the beginning of the song sounds as if Trey is picking the E and B strings. As an alternative to playing these chords you can just play the 3 notes that are the signature of this little part: Cmaj11 CAj7 C9 E-----1-------0-------------- And after this go into the B---------------------3------ F -> Fm -> C G---------------------------- D---------------------------- A---------------------------- E---------------------------- 2) The second bridge sounds real nice when the Eb and Bb are played on the 6th fret and the C and F are played on the 8th. 3) the F at the begining of the chorus should be played on the 1st fret, and the F at the end of the line should be played on the 8th.
