Repeat the whole main riff once more, which leads into the verse. Verse:: Em D I can remember the night oh so well. D Bm Asus2 Em D/F# The way the moon shone down on the Mississippi river swell. Em D Not a soul out there could have known. D Bm Asus2 Em D/F# Just how quick and fast that fog would come down 1st Break:: A In the middle of a silent night C D/F# Heard that whistle blow Chorus:: Em Em D/F# D/F# Was the wrong place at the wrong time Am Cmaj7 C D/F# Now the tracks are bent out of line Em D/F# Am Cmaj7 C D/F# I said down on the Riverbed is where you'll find those souls Em Em D/F# D/F# Was the first mate on the foredeck Am Cmaj7 C D/F# Ran my ship aground Em D/F# Am Cmaj7 C I said down on the Riverbed is where you'll find those souls D/F# Transition to the Main Riff again, play it 4 times Where you'll find those souls.. 2nd Verse:: Em D Now the train had just left the station in New Orleans D Bm Asus2 Em D/F# 'Bout the same time we hit the bridge at two fifteen Em D I can still hear the twisting metal cry D Bm Asus2 Em D/F# As a broken track threw the train off the line Repeat the 1st Break x1 Repeat the Chorus x1 Toss the riff in once before moving to the 2nd break

2nd Break:: G Em D/F# B7 I know I'll never find any kind of peace of mind, oh but you can rest assured C D/F# I will always remember the sound of that whistle blow Solo:: Note: Some chords in the solo are played as barre chords for style points -It still sounds alright if you just play them as normal -It's also a little more up tempo, and higher notes in the chords are more accentuated than the lower notes, give the song a listen to hear the change in style during the solo. Sweep pick this on an upstroke, followed by the Am It might take some practice to get the rolling sound of the notes down | | V

Am - Cmaj7 - C - D/F# -Ditto for the barre chords Em - Em - D/F# - D/F# Am - Cmaj7 - C - D/F# Back to the Chorus x1 Riff X4 End with :: G - Asus2 - Em - Em Last thing to note: - The transitions from Am - Cmaj7 - C have an Am7 chord in between to get the right sound just use one finger to move between those three chords so that you're always holding down the Am7 (x02010) as you go. Wooooo first tab! May not be dead on but hopefully I didn't make a horrific mess of things :) Also be sure to check out Davy Knowles, as he is a tremendously talented dude. ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | x Mute note |( ) Ghost note ************************************
