/ Smashing Pumpkins / Siamese Dream (1993) / Spaceboy guitar tab

spaceboy -- by smashing pumpkins

transcribed by Chris Carman (cecarman@miavx1.acs.muohio.edu)

Finally, an acoustic song!  of course, that's excluding Disarm...

This song is actually pretty easy, if you disregard the violin & cello..

Main riff:
|--repeat 3x----|
----------------|--------0---------0----------
--0-0--0-0-0-0--|--0-----0---------0----------
--0-0--0-0-0-0--|--0-----0---------0----------
--3/5--5-5/9-9--|--7--10-10--10-10-10--10-10--
--3/5--5-5/9-9--|--7--10-10--10-10-10--10-10--
--1/3--3-3/7-7--|--5--8--8---8--8--8---8--8---

play this main acoustic riff throughout most of the song, or play the chords
marked in the lyrics....

[riff]
Feel it break your bones mr. jones
Taste me as I bleed, taste my need

               G           Am(i)             Em(i)
Spaceboy, I've missed you, spinning round my head
C(i)       G            D        Em
Anyway you choose me, I break instead

[riff]
Watch me, death defy, defile my life
I don't need, if I don't care

Please  I want to  go    home..I want to  go    home..
        I want to  go    home, I want to go home
Cause when a lover aches,   that's when a lover breaks

I want to go home, I want to go home...

Now just play the following riff twice for the instrumental:

C(i)              G
Spaceboy, they'll kill me
Am(i)                   Em(i)
Before I'm dead and gone
C(i)            G
And anyway they choose me,
   D        Em  F(i)
It won't be long
C(i)            G
And anyway they choose me,
   D           
We won't be long...
