The Replacements tabs for Alex chilton

Guitar tabs with lyrics

I've noticed a lot of Replacements tabs with the wrong chords and inaccurate
transcriptions.  As the Replacements are one of my all-time favorite bands, I have decided to try
to alleviate the situation by adding some quality tabs, starting with this classic song.

They sing I'm in love
          Whats that song?
          I'm in love
          With that song


Verse 2
Cerebral rape and pillage in a village of his choice
Invisible man who can sing in a visible voice
Feeling like a hundred bucks, exchanging good lucks face to face
Checkin' his stash by the trash at St. Mark's place

Children by the million scream for Alex Chilton when he comes 'round


Chorus
They sing, I'm in love
What's that song?
I'm in love
With that song

Verse 3
Running around the house, Mickey Mouse and the Tarot card
Falling asleep with a flop pop video on
If he was from Venus, would he meet us on the moon?
If he died in Memphis, then that'd be cool, babe


Pre-Chorus
Children by the million scream for Alex Chilton when he comes 'round


Chorus
They sing i'm in love
What's that song?
I'm in love

Ii'm in love
With that song
