A Fond Farewell Chords
- Fond Farewell -

by Elliott Smith 
Album: From A Basement On The Hill
Tabbed by Dries Meijer, Holland

When you listen on the album you can clearly hear that Elliott uses Barré chords
instead of normal chords witch you see on other tabs. So I can pretty much say that
this is the closest you can get. At the bottom of the tab you can see the chords. Have
fun with my first tab.

Gb barré A E Dbm Gb barré A E Dbm Gb barré A E Dbm Gb barré A

E                   A         E
The litebrite's now black and white
          Gbm                       Dbm
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Ab                    barré A
   Pitch burning on a shining sheet
Gb                           barré A
   The only maker that you'd want to meet
E                  A      E
The dying man in a living room
Gb                        Dbm
   Who's shadow paces the floor
Ab                            barré A
   Who'll take you out in the open door
Gb                A
   This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Gb                   A
   It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Gb                      A
Who couldn't get things right
E                  Dbm
Fond farewell to a friend

About the artist behind A Fond Farewell 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.
