Here are the chords for "Bishop Mariah", a catchy tune by a great up and
coming band, Elephant Ride.  Since I didn't see anything posted at all
for Elephant Ride, I figured I should rectify the situation!  Enjoy, and
buy their cd "Forget"!

                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Bishop Mariah" by Elephant Ride


Each chord is played for one measure. The song starts off with an
accoustic and single vocal.  The song really doesn't have a chorus, just
four verses and a bridge.

When changing from C to G, Dave Martin plays the following little riff:
D |---0/2\0---|
