Tom Cruise Crazy/Tabs

From JoCopedia
Jump to: navigation, search



Original transcription by nwflattop, revised by Suuuupaadave. For the intro, use your index finger to mute the A string when you're strumming the D/F# and do the little half step bend to get the sound JoCo is getting out of this chord. The prechorus riff happens every time right before the chorus during the last two beats of the B7 chorus

Verse 1
E             G#              C#7
Tom Cruise is so in love with Katie
F#m                              B7
At least all his people tell him so
             E                   G#           C#7
And while he thinks that she's a very special lady
F#m                                      B7  G#
It's probably not the way he'd choose to go
      A           E                   F#m                C#m
And a lifetime of longing looks would cause too much distraction
A                      E        B7
Good thing that he's not gay anymore

Chorus
E   G#        A          E
Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise crazy
F#m               B7      E     B7
Just be glad it's him not you
E      G#       A        E
If you had Tom Cruise's troubles
     F#m                B7    G#
You might be Tom Cruise crazy too
      C#m                  E7
You'd flash your big white shiny smile
      A             Am
You'd buy expensive shoes
          E       G#  C#7
But you'd be the only man on Earth
     F#m       B7      E
Who couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise
   C#7     F#m        B7      E (re-intro)
Oh no, you couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise

Verse 2
E             G#             C#7
Tom Cruise is always getting older
F#m				   B7
He knows he'll never be that young again
    E                     G#            C#7
And when Tom Cruise looks back over his shoulder
F#m                                B7  G#
He sees a thousand younger leading men
   A                   E
He knows someday he'll have to play
   F#m          C#m
An old retarded grandpa
      A               E              B7
While someone younger plays his sexy son

Chorus
E   G#        A          E
Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise crazy
F#m               B7      E     B7
Just be glad it's him not you
E      G#       A        E
If you had Tom Cruise's troubles
     F#m                B7    G#
You might be Tom Cruise crazy too
      C#m                  E7
You'd flash your big white shiny smile
      A             Am
You'd buy expensive shoes
          E       G#  C#7
But you'd be the only man on Earth
     F#m       B7      E
Who couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise
   C#7     F#m        B7      E (re-intro)
Oh no, you couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise

Bridge
C                G                   Am        Em
Tom Cruise knows somewhere there's a place for him
C           G             Am     B7
He's not of this world anymore...

Verse 3
E            G#            C#7
Somewhere in some secluded castle
F#m                                 B7
Poor Tom Cruise sits staring at the wall
        E                G#            C#7
And the outside world is always such a hassle
F#m                          B7  G#
Sometimes he won't go out at all
          A            E
There are millions who know his name
F#m       C#m
Everybody loves him
A              E            B7
Why is it that he feels so alone?

Chorus
E   G#        A          E
Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise crazy
F#m               B7      E     B7
Just be glad it's him not you
E      G#       A        E
If you had Tom Cruise's troubles
     F#m                B7    G#
You might be Tom Cruise crazy too
      C#m                  E7
You'd flash your big white shiny smile
      A             Am
You'd buy expensive shoes
          E       G#  C#7
But you'd be the only man on Earth
     F#m       B7      E
Who couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise
   C#7     F#m        B7      E (re-intro)
Oh no, you couldn't enjoy Tom Cruise

Bass tabs by suuuupaadave:
"Here's the bass tab to the live performance of Tom Cruise Crazy, based off the live performance on Youtube with Kristen (Shirts, on ukulele). I apologize again to anyone who has trouble with reading the rhythms as I'm not very good at making tablature yet, but the notes are correct nonetheless. I've included the chord symbols for anyone who wants to have someone accompany you on their instrument of choice while you play."

Alternate voicings

  • Molly plays the fourth line in the chorus "You might be Tom Cruise Crazy too" with a Cdim(7) instead of a G# at the end. On the guitar this might be best accomplished by using barre B7 with your ring finger and pinky (x24242) and then adding the C with the middle finger to make Cdim7 (x34242).
