Seasick Steve - Treasures chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
A very minor-key sad blues ballad!! From the 2011 album You Canīt Teach An Old Dog New Tricks.

Although it opens on Dm, it closes on the chord of Dm/C, so it just hangs there 
unresolved, adding to the melancholy.


on the Dm / Dm C sections. Roll on and off the open top E string to F on the first fret. 
Like so....

E ---1--p0-h1----1--p0-h1--|
B ---3---3-------3---3-----|
G ---2---2-------2---2-----|
D -0-----------------------|
A --------------3----------|
E -------------------------|

Little chromatic run on the E string, A to Ab to G, then G to G# to the Am chord (all 
marked down below)

OK here we go!

       Dm   Dm/C         Dm    Dm/C
When I walk    down your street

Through your barred windows you look at me
        Dm   Dm/C                Dm  Dm/C
And you wonder    have I come to ask

For one of your precious things that do not last

That there's more to this picture than that shows
        Dm Dm/C               Dm    C
