                               Here's To The Halcyon

Band: Old 97's
Album: Blame It On Gravity
Tuning: Standard
Tabbed: L. Umbarger, JAN09 (lumbarge@yahoo.com)
Notes: Solo rhythm is probably off a bit, I'm hopelessly caucasian

Verse1:
E------------------------------------------------------------
Get me through this Lord and I値l do anything you say

B-------------------------------A--------------------E-------
Live right, read the good book, I値l settle down and pray

E------------------------------------------------------------
When Gabriel blows his horn I know things might not go my way

B-------------------A------------------------------E---------
Get me through this Lord and I値l do anything you say

Verse2:
Pluck me from this driftwood Lord I値l be a better man
Raise me from the deep sea in the palm of your great hand
Let me see tomorrow (the moral?) and I値l try to understand
How the sinking of my little vessel fits into your plan

Chorus1:
A----------------------E--------------------------------
Here痴 to the Halcyon, forever may she rest

B--------------------A------------------------------E---
At the bottom of the ocean, for the good Lord knows best

A-------------------------------E-----------------------
You made her from lumber and you gave her to the sea

B-------------A------------------------------E----------
Now good Lord what do you propose to do with me?

Verse3:
Get me through this Lord and I値l devote my life to you
Things look pretty bleak right now but I know you値l come through
I致e squandered my good fortune and my other fortune too
Get me through this Lord and I値l devote my life to you

Bridge:
---------A-----------------E-------------
I cannot change my past mistakes

-----------B-----------------E-----------
I致e led a life devoid of virtue

-------A-------------E-------------------
Either way the man I am

------------B----------------A-----------
Is dead and gone although I know the past

A-------------------E--------------------
Can come around and hurt you

Verse4:
Get me through this lord and I will never drink again
Well I値l pore over my Bible and I値l pour out all my gin
I値l prove to you a sinning man can turn his back on sin
Give me some fresh water Lord I値l never drink again

Chorus2:
Here痴 to the Halcyon, forever may she rest
At the bottom of the ocean, for the good Lord knows best
You made her from lumber and you gave her to the sea
Now good Lord what do you propose to do with me?

Chorus3:
Here痴 to the Halcyon, forever may she rest
At the bottom of the ocean, for the good Lord knows best
You made her from lumber and you gave her to the sea
Now good Lord what do you propose to do with me?
Good Lord what do you propose to do with me?
