Impossible
Lyrics transcribed by: Daniel Gold
Music transcribed by: Scott Holcomb
Main Theme (with lots of distortion and a pumping wah!):
   Bb       A
   /    /     /              /
|----------------------------------|
|----------------------------------|  4 times just Mike &
|-------3---2-2--DAH-DAH-DAH-DAH---|  Todd, then the whole
|-----3-----2-2--------------------|  band 4 times through.
|--1--------0-0--------------------|
|----------------------------------|

Verse 1:
  G
I got to get back to the house
          E                     D
There's a warm chair where the cat has been
                G
I feel a little better when I'm back at the house
E              D
Hope I haven't lost my keys
       G
I been thinking about the police
E                D
Jelly filled for justice, please (also: coffee filled)

| / /   / / | / / / / |
  D   C       B

(Main Theme)

Verse 2:
    G
I'm standing here in the kitchen
E             D
Wonder if I'm hungry at all
G
Right there, open the icebox
E               D
Wonder if I can eat it all

| / /   / / | / / / / |
  D   C       B

Final Lyrics:
   Bb                          A
My eyes can't see through this metal door
Bb                A
Mouth just ate an hour before
Bb                          A
Stomach can't remember what food is for
        Bb                                A
Haven't listened to my belly in a year or more

Intense Impossible (*not entirely* ;)) instrumental section:

| / / / / | /    / /  / | (12x)
  A           Bb   B  C

(Main Theme)

(Verse Chords three times through)

| / /   / / | / /   / / |
  D   C       C   B

Change rhythm to sort of a swing feel:
|--3------5--|
|--6------7--|
|--4------5--|   I'm pretty sure about the G7, and
|--3------7--|   the D thing is probably close.
|--5------5--|
|--3---------|
   G7     D*

| /  / / / | /  / / / |  (4x)
  G7         D*

  B         Bb

| /  / / / | /  / / / |  (4x)
  G7         D*

| /  / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / |
  D*                   C         B

Strum the following in an 8th note pattern:
| /   /  /   / |  (8x)
  Bb  C  Bb  C

| /   /  /   / |  (4x)
  E   F  E   F

| /   /  /   / |  (4x)
  Bb  C  Bb  C

| /   /  /   / |  (4x)
  E   F  E   F

| /   /  /   / |  (4x)
  Bb  C  Bb  C

Back to swing part:
| /  / / / | /  / / / |  (4x)
  G7         D*

| /  / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / /
  D*                   C         B         Bb

I play metal style barre chords (bottom 3 notes) for
all the chords except where they are written out.
