Dr Dog - That Old Black Hole chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Despite the insane drumming(Eric Slick?) at the back end of this song, I think you can
rock this one out on the acoustic if you get the strumming down, especially the double
time part.  I tried to nail the chord changes on the lyrics but this editor kinda sucks. 
Maybe my first and last guitar tab!  Feel free to contact me at padzeke@me.com.


Intro: Gmin - 4bars

Gmin                     Bmaj
I put on my clothes like a body guard
        Cm7                     Emaj
I put the dogs on patrol in my own back yard
Gmin                           Bmaj
I don't wanna fight but I'm constantly ready
    Cm7                             Emaj
And I don't rock the boat, but it's always unsteady

         Emaj
There's an elephant in my head
      Bmaj
And I tip toe around it
         Cm7
There are eggshells on the floor
          Emaj
Therefore I never touch the ground

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,
  F#maj
You set out each day
F#maj
Never to arrive

        Gmin
I got my eyes on the prize
        Bmaj
But it looks just like a mystery
        Cm7                  Emaj
And it all goes by on the lonesome trail to victory
    Gmin                           Bmaj
I'm drawing in the blinds, I got my own four walls
          Cm7                        Emaj
And the show really starts once the curtain falls

         Emaj
Take this thorn from my side
         Bmaj
Fix this chip on my shoulder
         Cm7
Time is racing with the clock
         Emaj
And I ain't getting any older


               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,
  F#maj
You set out each day
F#maj
Never to arrive

Gmin("Whoo!")


Bmaj
I put on my finest thread
      Bmaj                                Cm7
And I wrap up my body tight
                      Cm7
With the sun in my eyes
                 Bmaj
I step into the night
       Cm7                Emaj
Like the mystery in the dark
Oh, it's just another kind of light

      Bmaj
I don't expect you to believe me
      Cm7              Bmaj
But everything is al--right
          Bmaj
I don't make rules for a living
      Bmaj                            Cm7
I don't do tricks for a dime

                 Cm7
I was born on a good day,
                 Bmaj
Deaf, dumb and blind.
      Cm7           Emaj
Who am I to tell the truth?

I don't even know what it is.


  Bmaj                           Cm7                Bmaj
I don't know how to say it but I know that I can show you.
  Bmaj                           Cm7                Bmaj
I don't know how to say it but I know that I can show you.


(now for the fun..double time)

      Bmaj
I tie my boots up tight
  Bmaj
And I head straight for bed
         Cm7
There's a pistol and a crystal
Cm7
Underneath my pillow

       Bmaj
There's a tender heart
           Bmaj
Inside that ugly armadillo
          Cm7
"These are tears of joy,"
         F#maj
Cried the weeping willow

        Emaj
There's a spirit in the air
       F#maj
And there ain't no way around it
      Bmaj
I was not prepared to lose it
       Cm7
On the moment that I found it

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,

               Emaj
It's like that old black hole,
  F#maj
No matter how you try,
  F#maj
You set out each day
F#maj
Never to arrive
