                             Satellite - Dave Matthews Band
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Chris King

Tuning: Standard or Capo 1 (Sounds nice either way, but I believe Capo 1 is the original 
sound. As always, tabs and chords are relative to the capo).

I encourage listening to the song to get the timing, but I assume you like this song 
already since you are here.

Verse 1 (The riff above is played four times before the lyrics and twice through the 
following lyrics. I split up the lyrics to distinguish the two play-throughs)

Satellite in my eyes
Like a diamond in the sky
How I wonder

Satellite strung from the moon
And the world your balloon
Peeping Tom for the mother station

Chorus

G         C   Am     D
Winter's cold spring erases
G       C    Am          D
And the calm away by the storm is chasen
G          C    Am        D
Everything good needs replacing
G    C   G    Am         D
Look up, look down, all around, hey satellite

Verse 2 (The riff is played once before the following verse and is played twice through 
the verse).

Satellite headlines read
Someone's secrets you've seen
Eyes and ears have been

Satellite dish in my yard
Tell me more, tell me more
Who's the king of your Satellite Castle?

(For a smooth transition to the chorus, try strumming G as you start singing the phrase 
'satellite castle' instead of doing Part B of the riff).

Chorus

G         C   Am     D
Winter's cold spring erases
G       C    Am          D
And the calm away by the storm is chasen
G          C    Am        D

(The Riff is played once before the following).

     G              Bm         C        D
Rest high above the clouds no restriction
     G        Bm           C        D
Television we bounce round the world
          G       Bm           C           D
And while I spend these hours five senses reeling
              G        Bm        C       G
I laugh about the weatherman's satellite eyes

Verse 3 (3rd Verse, same as the first. Riff played once before and twice during Verse 3).

Satellite in my eyes
Like a diamond in the sky
How I wonder

Satellite strung from the moon
And the world your balloon
Peeping Tom for the mother station

Chorus

G         C   Am     D
Winter's cold spring erases
G       C    Am          D
And the calm away by the storm is chasen
G          C    Am        D
Everything good needs replacing
G    C   G    Am         D

(The Riff is played once before the following).

     G              Bm         C        D
Rest high above the clouds no restriction
     G        Bm           C        D
Television we bounce round the world
          G       Bm           C           D
And while I spend these hours five senses reeling
              G        Bm        C       G
I laugh about the weatherman's satellite eyes


The Riff is then played once for an outro
