                             Crucify Your Mind - Sixto Rodriguez
Tabbed by: Christian

Great song. I found a better way to play this than the tabs that were already on UG, and 
thought I'd share it with you guys.
I believe, that with this tab you can play very close to the original song, without 
being a guitar god in any way.

Listen to the song and figure out the strumming pattern, it's real easy.
I didn't know what the sus-variations of the Amaj7 and F#m chords are called, so I just 
named them "Amaj7" and "F#m". See the diagram below.

Have fun

Intro: A-Asus4-A, Amaj7-"Amaj7"-Amaj7, F#m-"F#m"-F#m, E x 2

           A     Asus4  A
Was it a huntsman or a player
     Amaj7    "Amaj7" Amaj7
That made you pay the cost
         F#m     "F#m"   F#m
That now assumes relaxed positions
     E                A
And prostitutes your loss?
          A     Asus4      A
Were you tortured by your own thirst
          Amaj7   "Amaj7"   Amaj7
In those pleasures that you seek
     F#m     "F#m"     F#m
That made you Tom the curious
      E                   A
That makes you James the weak?

A-Asus4-A, Amaj7-"Amaj7"-Amaj7, F#m-"F#m"-F#m, E

         E                       A-Asus4-A-Asus2
And you claim you got something going
    E              A-Asus4-A-Asus2  D
Something you call unique
    D                        A-Asus4-A-Asus2  E
But I've seen your self-pity showing
    E                        A-Asus4-A
As the tears rolled down your cheeks

A-Asus4-A, Amaj7-"Amaj7"-Amaj7, F#m-"F#m"-F#m, E

Soon you know I'll leave you
And I'll never look behind
'Cos I was born for the purpose
That crucifies your mind
So con, convince your mirror
As you've always done before
Giving substance to shadows
Giving substance ever more

And you assume you got something to offer
Secrets shiny and new
But how much of you is repetition
That you didn't whisper to him too
