Red House Painters - River chords

If you know this song rhythmically and mechanically, you'll get it down.

First things first. Like most Red House songs, this is in an awesome tuning.

This is called an open D7sus4+9
DADGCE

Capo on 2.

So not to make it sound confusing, but instead of having the tuning in the chord tab, 
i'll put the open notes with the capo on in there instead.

The song starts out like this:

F#|--------0----0----0-------------0----|
D |--------9----0----0-------------0----|
A |--------7----4----4-------------0----|
E |--0-----0----5----0-------------2----|
B |--0-----0----0----5---------0h2-2----|
E |--0-----x----0----5------0h2----2----|

That's the main gist for the verses.

The chorus goes like this:

"Down through the dirt you lead us..."

F#|--0-------0------0-------0-----0------0----0-1-0-|
D |--0-------0------0-------0-----0------0----0-0-0-|
A |--2-------4------2-------4-----0------2----2-2-2-|
E |--0-------0------0-------0-----0------0----0-0-0-|
B |--3-------5------3-------5-----2------3----------|
E |--3-------5------3-------5-----2------3----------|

"I feel you won't need us..."

F#|--0-------0------0-------0-----0------0-----------------0-1-0-1-0-1--|
D |--0-------0------0-------0-----0------0-----0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0-0--|
A |--2-------4------2-------4-----0------2-----0-2-0-2-----2-2-2-2-2-2--|
E |--0-------0------0-------0-----0------0-----0-0-0-0-----0-0-0-0-0-0--|
B |--3-------5------3-------5-----2------3-----3-3-3-3------------------|
E |--3-------5------3-------5-----2------3-----3-3-3-3------------------|

And back to the main gist of the song for a solo and then the next verse.
Do the above as the song follows...

Now to the fun, jammy part of the song.

"And two yellow eyes remember souls of ancient lies..."
"And she sees them dance and hears them moan and cry..."

F#|--0------0---0-1-0-1-0-1----0----------0-1-0-1-0-1--|
D |--0------0---0-0-0-0-0-0----0----------0-0-0-0-0-0--|
A |--0------2---2-2-2-2-2-2----0------2---2-2-2-2-2-2--|
E |--3------0---0-0-0-0-0-0----3------0---0-0-0-0-0-0--|
B |--1------0---0-0-0-0-0-0----1------0----------------|
E |---------0---0-0-0-0-0-0-----------0----------------|

And the end of the song just basically follows the jam session.

Also, if you know that chromatic diddy Mark plays in the jam, here's a fun and easy way 
to play it:

(Index finger on 3rd string, middle finger on 2nd string, and play the chromatics with 
your ring and pinky fingers)

F#|--0---|----0---0-0-0----0-0-0--0-0-|--1---|
D |--0---|----0---2-3-4----2-3-4--2-4-|--0---|
A |--0---|.---2---2-2-2----2-2-2--2-2-|--3--.|
E |--3---|.---0---0-0-0----0-0-0--0-0-|--3--.|
B |--1---|----0-----------------------|------|
E |------|----0-----------------------|------|

So that's about it. If there are errors at all or if you want to give me a suggestion of 
a song you want me to figure out, let me know via e-mail.

Thanks.
