Matisyahu - Crossroads chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Matisyahu's guitarist plays it with a capo on 6. I shall show you how to play it with a 
capo on 6 and how to play it with regular chords.

Capo 6:

Em|G|C
Em|C|Cadd9

The chords named Cadd9 is an open C shape a whole step up; i wasn't sure how to call the 
chord so i named it Cadd9 (open C shape a whole step up).

He plays those two combination sets of chords, and he varies the chords order in the 
chorus. You must figure out by ear when he's playing which chord. But ive given you the 
order in which he plays 9/10 of the song.
You must also figure out the pattern which he plays with your ears, it is not a 
difficult pattern.

The melody that keeps coming back is:

Just when you hit the first chords (Em) you play this:

 ''(root on capo, ofc.).''

e:|--0-----|
b:|-3--1-0-|  << melody line
G:|--------|
D:|--2-----|
A:|--2-----|
E:|--0-----|

He plays it with his pinky first on the 3 fret of the b string, while he strums the 
first Em chords and then hits the b string on 1 and than open. While he strums he plays the meldoy.


-----


The chords of the song without capo:
A#m|C#|F#
A#m|F#|.. this would be the shape of F# a whole step up, i havent figured out yet how to 
play it but i hope this tabs gives you the basis you need to play the song and fill in 
the resting gaps.
You can play the whole song tho' with this tab and these given chords can be repeated 
throughout the song.

With capo on 6: (remeber; Cadd9 = C a whole step up, i didnt know what to call it; if u 
know this, please put it down below).

Lyrics:
              Em
It's like I'm walking through this kingdom of time
   G   C           Em
Thus far I've done lost my mind
       G            C
Only to find the other side

             Em
Is where the world opens wide
G      C                Em
To descend these city streets late at night
    G             C
I've been searching for my bite
            Em
They say I inspired, but I'm still looking for my fire
G         C
These lies have got me tired
I'm free falling, I'm done stalling
I'm done crawling up this mountain top
I won't stop till I manifest my crop
The top is close
I'm sky scraping
They stay chasing
I'm like a raisin in the sun
I'm running from death's invasion
They're done, I'm going gray
I'm still young having mystic visions
Of the one, I hear the hum, the melody comes
Rushing in like some wind
Em        C    Cadd9
Cuts close like a knife
Em        C    Cadd9
All I got is my life
Em        C    Cadd9
All I got I got I got

Em        C    Cadd9
Crossroads, one million miles
Em        C    Cadd9
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by
Em        C    Cadd9
Crossroads, one million miles
Em        C    Cadd9
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by

Em                                  G         C
Now the rain is falling drizzle dropping on the street
                  Em
Cleaning off the dirt beneath my feet
          G             C
I got the beat on repeat
    Em
While I'm riding subway trains on a fact
           G            C
Over tracks to go crack, my heart's black
But intact I've come to take the music back
I'm moving forward this time you can't ignore it
Put the pedal to the floor
Let's take you off
Through the time that has come
The time has come I launch orbit
I'm tight rope
Walking over fiery flames, yeah hot coals
I'm like water for you trolls
I pay no tolls
Speak to ghosts
Time to go high
The cross that you walk by
Got my eye into
Magic fly off on the broom
Which way to choose I'm at the crossroads, but I'll never give my soul
It's already old

Em        C    Cadd9
Crossroads, one million miles
Em        C    Cadd9
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by
Em        C    Cadd9
Crossroads, one million miles
Em        C    Cadd9
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by

I'm a slave to the throne
The chariot of flames is my home
I'm in a class of my own
Lights out, you're all alone, with your heart of stone
O-o-o-o-o-oh-oh

Crossroads, one million miles
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by
Crossroads, one million miles
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by
Crossroads, one million miles
I'm kicking up dirt when I fly by
Crossroads, one million miles
