Subject: TAB: House of Dreams (Blue Rodeo)

Here's one Blue Rodeo tune that I have been playing for a while.  I haven't
seen it posted here or in the Nevada archive.  It is a vintage Jim Cuddy love
ballad.  I hope everything is clear (I'm a virgin poster).

When playing the Esus in the intro and throughout, hammer the A note (on the G
string).  I tried to indicate that with an "h" in the Intro TAB.  Just email
me if anyone needs help deciphering.

I must have thought you'd always be here I never even noticed when the changes came one day Seems one minute you were standing close I turned around again and girl you were far away BRIDGE 2: And every plan we made, I just let them fade And pile up on the floor beside the bed Now you're gone away but your memory stays I sit here thinking of the things I never said CHORUS INSTRUMENTAL (play chords from the verse) BRIDGE 3: Sometimes love quits when the pieces don't fit And suddenly all your world falls to the floor Now you're gone away, but your memory stays I hear your voice behind every single door CHORUS E E7 A Am E ... everything ...
