Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Tabbed by liamtown

Tune your guitar down by half a step.

The song is played in the key of B.
With the detuned tuning you basically play it as if you were playing in C.
The chords below refer to the standard chord shapes on a standardly tuned guitar.


This is a wonderful song. Ian Felice is a talented guitar player as well as songwriter
so there is more to the guitar playing than the pattern below - lots of nice hammer-ons etc.


Intro/Riff:

Eb|---------------0------------------|
Bb|---------------1------------------|
Gb|---------------0------------------|
Db|---------------0h2----------------|
Ab|--2-0----------3------------------|
Eb|------3-0-------------------------|


Verse: (other two verses follow this pattern)


(C) From the Gulf of (F) Aden

To the Marble (C) Coast

And the rolling (RIFF) hills of Oregon


(C) And the Tigris (F) river

And the wind that (C) blows

In the hanging (RIFF) bowers of Babylon



Chorus:


(C) I'm a fool for (F) giving

All that I (C) gave

To you pitiful (F) people

When the world was (G) made


And if I come back (F) down

From the stars (C) above

It's just to watch the (RIFF) mating of the doves


Verse:

I was there in Egypt when your king was slain
And it made me cry a million tears
And it formed a river in a western state
And it carved a canyon through the years

Chorus:

And I'm a fool for giving all that I gave
To you pitiful people when the world was made
And if I come back down from the stars above
It's just to watch the mating of the doves

Verse:

So you can preach of Heaven and you can warn of Hell
And you can murder millions in my name
But I gave you Heaven and the only Hell
Is the one you made from fear and hate

Final chorus (different lyrics):

You're all fools for thinking that I'm coming back
For some fiery judgement and turn the world to black
And if I come back down it's not to judge but love
And to be among the mating of the doves
