    Transcription by Gary Von Colln
    Here's the basic chord progression. The A-B-D progression is also
    used in the instrumental interlude. If you don't want to bother with
    the Dsus2 and Bsus2 just play D and B instead, it will still sound
    good.
    A
    Go back to those gold soundz 
    BD
    And keep my affect to yourself 
    A
    Because it's nothing that I don't like 
    BD
    Is it a crisis or a boring change 
    A
    When it's central, so essential 
    BD
    It has a nice ring when you laugh 
    A
    At the low-life opinions 
    BD
    And they're coming to the chorus now 
    F#mDsus2
    I keep my address to yourself 
    Bsus2
    Cause we need secrets 
    Dsus2
    We need secret, cret, cret, cret, crets 
    A
    Back right now 
    Because I never want to make you feel
    That you're social, never ignorant soul
    Believe in what you want to do
    And do you think that is a major flaw
    When they rise up in the falling rain
    And if you stay around with your knuckles ground down
    The trials over, the weapon's found
    Keep my address to myself
    Cause it's secret
    Cause it's secret, cret,
    cret,cret,cret,cret,cret,cret,cret,cret,cret,cret,
    Back right now
    So drunk in the august sun
    And you're the kind of girl I like
    Because you're empty, and I'm empty
    And you can never quarantine the past
    Did you remember in December
    That I won't eat you when I'm gone
    And if I go there ,I won't stay there
    Because I'm sitting here too long
    I've been sitting here too long
    And I've been wasting
    Allocating outward
    For the last word
    Last words come up
    All you've got to wait
    Now for some "Pavement chords". First retune your guitar to
    C
     
    G
     
    D
     
    G
     
    B
     
    B
    (fat 
    E
    string down 4 frets in pitch, 
    A
    string down 2 frets 
    in pitch, thin E sting down 5 frets in pitch). Once you've retuned
    these are the chord shapes:
    A
    (I) A (2 fr.) 
    B
    (I) B (2 fr.) 
    Bsus2
     
    D
    (I) D (2 fr.) 
    Dsus2
     
    The (I) or (II) just indicates position, e.g. A(I) is an A major,
    played in the first position (along the guitar neck), while A(II) is
    also A major but played in the second position.
    Note that the first string is not played in any of the above chords.
    Since the first and second strings are tuned the same, if you want,
    you can fret the first string the same as the second and play it.
    >From listening to the recording, I think the two guitars play as
    follows:
    guitar 1: A(I) - B(I) - D(I)
    guitar 2: A(II) - A(II) - A(II)
    Here guitar 2 is playing the A(II) the whole time. Listen for those
    high notes on the record, especially during the first verse when
    guitar 1 is quit.
    both:
    F#m
     
    Dsus2
     
    Bsus2
     
    Dsus2
     
    intrumental interlude (roughly):
    guitar 1: A(I) - B(I) - D(I)
    guitar 2: A(II) - B(II) - D(II)
    The interlude is pretty free form so this simple pattern isn't the
    whole story, but you can play around with these chords and find a lot
    of the sounds on the record.
