Dave Matthews Band - Dreams Of Our Fathers tab version 2

Dave Matthews Band - 'Dreams of Our Fathers'
From the Album 'Everyday'
tuning - B E A D F# B  Baritone Guitar (7-string could be used)
tabbed by jjhand

Use a good reverb for this song since the guitar sound is so deep. If you 
don't have a Baritone, most of it can be played on a normal guitar & some chords 
can be played in a higher position to be similar. Its a great song, 
so please rate or comment so I can do the best job on it.

Lyrics: "Oh, Iím choking, Iím choking On the smoke from this burning house I claw and I scrape But I canít seem to get out But who then, who is this Thatís scratching from the ground Oh, itís my world, too But whose gold is this Iím digging out?" "When we go, where we go When weíre dead, is the verdict still out? Do we get into line To line up with those long dead now? With the muffled tears of sorrow Bones underground Is this time our time? Yes, it is Without or with this shadow of doubt"

Verse 2 - Play Verse Riff again Lyrics: "I wanna go, I wanna run We turn, so sure someoneís looking down Itís haunting me, haunting me Leaves us here to get out Though I donít believe, I donít believe This flavor in my mouth Is from my tongue alone So bitter I wanna spit it out" "I repeat these words, they come out Under the blue light in the sky My empty pages are filling up With these wicked lies But I hear deep in myself An echo, an echo Of empty, empty emptiness Comes up and swells inside" Play Chorus Again Bridge (2:05) - play 4x, let ring
