Passafire - Black Dog tab

Another great one off Vines: Black Dog

The intro part is what really makes the song, but the rest of it is very simple standard
chords, but knowing Ted Bowne and Passafire they like to play barre chords at some odd
times especially you'll see in the chorus.

Verse 1:

C
I had a dream that I woke up, behind the wheel of a pick up truck
Am
A black dog in the road, swerve to miss it and the wheel got stuck
F
Came back to reality, to find my mortality
C
Still staring me straight in the eye, it was looking straight down at me
C
Not even a year went by, the evening that I came to find
Am
A black dog on river street, on it's chest was a little white stripe
F
Took him back to my hideaway, across the alley from the library
C
I told him everything will be okay, I told him everything will be alright

Chorus:

F (barred 8th fret)            Am (barred 5th fret)
And when I look at your face, I could see my reflection
C
You could never fall from grace, you taught me so many lessons
F (barred 8th fret)            Am (barred 5th fret)
And when he'd see me crying, lick the tears from my face
C
Always a best friend of mine and, there will always be a trace

Verse 2:

C
Loved the feel of the kick drum, used to fall asleep right next to it
Am
A black dog with a kind soul, had a bone but he never would chew it
F
Like the white cadejo he'd protect if anyone stepped to ya
C
Throw a ball and took off running, never bring that ball back to you
C
A lifetime now a memory, the incarnation of a reverie brooding
Am
Never will be dead to me, wouldn't believe you if you showed me proof
F
I dig down in my treasury, part of me like a wisdom tooth
C
I pull it out and the pain rushed in, I never thought that it would come this soon

Chorus:

F (barred 8th fret)            Am (barred 5th fret)
And when I look at your face, I could see my reflection
C
You could never fall from grace, you taught me so many lessons
F (barred 8th fret)            Am (barred 5th fret)
And when he'd see me crying, lick the tears from my face
C
Always a best friend of mine and, there will always be a trace
F (barred 8th fret)            Am (barred 5th fret)
And when I look at your face, I could see my reflection
C
You could never fall from grace, you taught me so many lessons
F (barred 8th fret)            Am (barred 5th fret)
And when he'd see me crying, lick the tears from my face
C
Always a best friend of mine and, there will always be a trace

Bridge:

Em                   F             C
I miss you so badly, wish you were around right now
Em                            F                         Am         C    G
We'd walk through the alley and follow the sound of the sun going down

Outro: same as intro end on C
