245 Am Chords
2:45 am
Elliott Smith

There is one basic bass run that is used throughout the whole song, with the exception
of one part of the intro.
This song is really easy.

Verse 1:

Em         C           G  Run 1
I'm going out sleepwalking
       Em        C            G  Run 1
Where mute memories start talking
     Em                 C             G  Run 1
The boss that couldn't help but hurt you
          Em             C           G  Run 1
And the pretty thing he made desert you
     Em        C       G  Run 1
I'm going out like a baby
     Em         C      G  Run 1
A naive unsatisfiable baby
Em                 C          G  Run 1
Grabbing on to whatever's around
         Em                   C        G  Run 1
For the soaring high or the crushing down

Bridge/chorus (whatever you want to call it)

With hidden cracks that don't show
      D                    C
But that constantly just grow

These patterns, obviously, stay the same through the whole song.

About the artist behind 245 Am Chords:

Steven Paul "Elliott" Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and resided for a significant portion of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. His primary instrument was the guitar, but he was also proficient at piano, clarinet, bass, drums and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery"[1] and use of multi-tracking to create vocal harmonies.

After playing in the rock band Heatmiser for several years, Smith began his solo career in 1994 with releases on the independent record labels Cavity Search and Kill Rock Stars. In 1997 he signed a contract with DreamWorks Records, for which he recorded two albums. Smith rose to mainstream prominence when his song "Miss Misery", included in the soundtrack for the film Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category in 1997.

Smith battled with depression, alcoholism and drug addiction for years, and these topics often appeared in his lyrics. At age 34, he died in Los Angeles, California from two stab wounds to the chest.[2] The autopsy evidence was inconclusive as to whether the wounds were self-inflicted.[3] At the time of his death, Smith was working on his sixth studio album, From a Basement on the Hill, which was released posthumously on October 19, 2004.
